Veiligheid van bure kom eerste NIELEN DE KLERK @nielendk

Vir Theo Galloway (66) is daar geen groter motivering as die veiligheid van sy bure en omgewing nie. Dis hoekom hy ure en ure ekstra insit om sy woongebied te patrolleer. Dit is ook hoekom hy vanjaar die medewenner is van die Stad Kaapstad se metrowye buurtwagprys vir patrolleerder van die jaar. Galloway, wat al 64 jaar in Chrismar bly, is al sedert 2014 voorsitter van hul buurtwag en sedert 2013 deel daarvan. Die ander wenner is Paul Kruger van die PWP-buurtwag vir Panorama, Kleinbosch, Welgelegen en Plattekloof. Wenners word genomineer vir pryse in 10 kategorieë, waaronder buurtwag van die jaar, misdaadbekamper van die jaar en inspirasie van die jaar. ’n Klein groep verteenwoordigers het die toekenningsgeleentheid verlede naweek in die Stad bygewoon en ander kon die uitsending regstreeks oor die internet kyk. JP Smith, Stad Kaapstad se burgemeesterskomiteelid vir veiligheid en sekuriteit, het die buurtwagte geprys. “Ek is trots om verbind te word met honderde vrywilligers wat omgee, toegewydheid en innovering wys in die dien van hul gemeenskappe en ek ondersteun hulle 100% in hul missie om Kaapstad veiliger vir almal te maak.” Dit is nie duidelik wat Chrismar se wenresep is nie, maar Galloway maak beslis ’n groot deel daarvan uit. In 2018 het hulle by dieselfde toekennings-

In 2019 het die buurtwag by die Bellvillegemeenskapspolisiëringsforum (BGPF) die prys gewen vir buurtwag van die jaar. Dit is nie vreemd om te hoor Galloway het as deel van die “above and beyond”-prys lede van die publiek gehelp om hul bande in gietende reën te wissel nie. Hy is egter self skugter oor sy sukses en sê dit is te danke aan sy ure op die pad. “Ek spandeer baie ure aan die buurtwag en om buurtwaglede te werf.” V Na bladsy 2.

School cleared of racism DESIRÉE RORKE @dezzierorke


report from the provincial education department has cleared Brackenfell High School from alleged racism over a private matric function organised by parents at the school. The school had denied allegations from the onset. In a statement to the media on Monday 7 December, education minister DebbieSchäfer said she had received a report on the investigation. “The facts that have been ascertained, corroborate the initial reports that this was a private function,” she said. The report found the following: On 11 September, the school sent a letter to parents, advising them that the school’s matric farewell had been cancelled, because of an instruction from the education department. Subsequently, a parent of one of the learners then decided to arrange a function for her daughter and some of her friends, as she wanted to do something special for her following the cancellation of the school’s farewell. The event was arranged at a private venue (a wine farm) for 17 October. Tickets cost R500 each. “I have seen the invitation, and there is no reference to the school at all. “It specified that it was limited to 100 people, after the venue advised that they could increase the number of attendees from 50 to 100 because of the relaxation of Covid regulations,” says Schäfer. It was further established that the invitation was widely circulated, via WhatsApp groups. “The parent asked class representatives to circulate it to their class WhatsApp

groups, and the principal has confirmed with them that they did so. The invitation was also posted on the parent organiser’s Facebook page, so was open to people outside Brackenfell High as well. As a result, there were 42 learners from Brackenfell High School and 30 from other surrounding schools who attended,” she says. Furthermore, a separate WhatsApp group was started for those who had replied that they wished to attend. “This would explain the allegations of some who claim to have been excluded from a WhatsApp group,” says Schäfer. Allegations were also made publicly that the head girl did not attend “because no learners of colour were attending”. According to the report, both the head girl and head boy were invited but did not attend, as they had other plans on that day and were organising their own farewell functions. The statement found that the four teachers that were invited in their personal capacities, had close personal links to the organising parent, hence the invitations. “The school was aware that the event was happening, but the school and the organisers regarded it as a private event. “It was thus not necessary to seek approval of the principal or the SGB. Supervision at the event was strictly maintained by parents only.” It is thus clear that this was a private event that was organised by parents of learners, who were disappointed that the formal school farewell had been cancelled.

The fact that people from other schools attended, shows that it was not a “school event”. It was not held on school property, as has been widely reported, despite repeated corrections. Confusion followed the school’s media service provider, who was asked to take photos at the event, erroneously uploaded images from the event on the school’s website, resulting in other parents raising objections. However, the school did not give permission for this to be done, and the photos were removed. Schäfer stated that there is no evidence that people were excluded based on their race. “There are also no grounds to take action against teachers who attended the private event. “The above notwithstanding, this incident has highlighted other incidents of racial tensions at the school. “The school has freely acknowledged that and has already taken action to address the issue.” A diversity committee had already been formed in June this year after allegations of racist behaviour by some individuals. Schäfer says its activities were interrupted because of Covid-19, but will now be fasttracked. Based on the committee’s findings the SGB will consider whether a policy needs to be adopted to address issues. In addition to this, the district will also arrange a series of diversity workshops facilitated by the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation, for all the staff at the school.

“It is thus clear that this was a private event organised by parents of learners.”

VAN BLADSY 1 Hy het ook onlangs die GPF gehelp met ’n inligtingsaand en om buurtwagte te help akkrediteer. Galloway, ’n pensioenaris wat destyds as ’n grondverskuiwingstegnikus vir die provinsiale administrasie gewerk het, sê die buurtwag het eers in 2012 ontstaan. Hy het aangesluit omdat hy die mense geken het wat dit gestig het en omdat daar misdaad in die gebied was. “Ek het nie besef waaroor dit gaan nie,” erken hy. “Dit gaan oor absolute veiligheid en sekerheid van die area.” Sedert hul stigting het misdaad merkbaar afgeneem en Galloway meen dit is omdat die buurtwag sigbaar is. Hulle het 32 aktiewe patrolleerders wat elkeen twee keer per maand vir drie uur patrolleer. Die buurtwag werf egter konstant nuwe lede en hy moedig soveel mense moontlik aan om aan te sluit.

Lawyer jailed for compensation fraud NIELEN DE KLERK @nielendk


former lawyer from Bellville has been sentenced to 12 years in prison after defrauding the Road Accident Fund (RAF) of R14.8 million. The lawyer, Brian Albertus Baumann (53), was sentenced in the Bellville Commercial Crimes Court last week after he helped himself to RAF payouts due to his clients. According to Eric Ntabazalila, spokesperson of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Baumann used most of the funds for his gambling addiction. He is a divorced father of three and admitted to receiving psychotherapy for his addiction. As part of a plea agreement, Baumann confessed to 16

counts of fraud. “The court ordered that an investigation be conducted to determine whether any money or assets can be confiscated from the benefits of the 53-year-old Bellville attorney,” he said in a statement. “The court has also ordered the state and the defence to submit heads of argument on 27 September 2021 and that a confiscation hearing be heard on 15 October 2021.” He was arrested on 13 February this year following an investigation by the Hawks, after committing the crimes between January 2018 and December 2019. He admitted to the court that he was obliged to open and hold a trust account for his practice. “He confessed that he received more than R24.4m on behalf of his clients from the RAF but he only paid his clients R6.7m and un-

lawfully pocketed R14.8m for himself.” The prosecutor, Advocate Siphokazi Makanda, told the court that Baumann failed to pay the money from his trust account to his clients or paid them less than was due. “The accused’s actions have undermined the image and integrity of the legal profession and he has shown the worst form of disregard for the rule of law. He mercilessly defrauded his clients who had suffered severe bodily injuries and were handsomely compensated by the RAF to enable them to apply the necessary measures to improve their quality of life post the road accidents they were subjected to,” she said. “He continued with his criminal actions against his clients even after charges were laid against him, proving total lack of re-

morse for his actions,” she argued. Ntabazalila said the State, in consultation with the Asset Forfeiture Unit, “applied for the confiscation order of the accused assets and probe”. Baumann was ordered to submit a statement that will help assist the court in making a decision. “On 20 August 2021, the applicant must dispute the correctness of the statement made by the accused. The applicant and the accused must notify any person or persons who may have interests in the identified assets or properties that are likely to be confiscated to make representations to the court within seven days of them being notified.” The hearing will be on 15 October 2021. Zinzi Hani, spokesperson for the Hawks, confirmed the events.

Motorhandelaar in Bellville tronk toe NIELEN DE KLERK @nielendk ’n Bellvillese handelaar in gebruikte voertuie is verlede week 18 jaar tronkstraf vir bedrog en geldwassery opgelê. Ryan Courtney (33) is in die Bellville-handelshof skuldig bevind op 28 aanklagte van geldwassery en een van bedrog. Eric Ntabazalila, woordvoerder van die nasionale vervolgingsgesag (NVG), sê in ’n verklaring Courtney is ’n bekende sakeman in die wêreld van tweedehandse voertuie. Courtney het beleggers gekry om geld vooraf te gee om voertuie te koop en het dan die voertuie teen ’n groot wins aan motorhandelaars verkoop.

“Hy werf beleggers wat geld gee vir die koop van voertuie wat hy dan aan handelaars verkoop vir hul vertoonlokale. Die voertuie word vir ’n beduidende wins verkoop.” Tussen Oktober 2017 en Februarie 2019 het hy geld van die beleggers ontvang en belowe dat hy daarmee voertuie sou koop. Hy het egter die geld gebruik om dieselfde voertuig te koop en te verkoop. Sy beleggers is altesame R16,8 miljoen kwyt. Ntabazalila sê hy het die geld gebruik om ander beleggers te betaal, maar dit is ook vir persoonlike gebruik aangewend om sy dobbelverslawing te finansier. Baie van die beleggers is mense met wie hy voorheen besigheid gedoen het. “Hy het hul vertroue gewen deur die

feit dat hul opbrengste op hul vorige beleggings gekry het.” Die aanklaer, adv. Juan Agulhas, het aan die hof gesê beleggers het baie geld weens Courtney se leuens verloor. “Die uitermatige groot bedrag geld wat by hierdie bedrog betrokke is, is baie verswarend.” Hy het gesê hierdie soort oortredings het ’n groot impak op die SuidAfrikaanse ekonomie en is baie ernstig. Courtney is 13 jaar tronkstraf opgelê vir die 28 aanklagte van bedrog en vyf jaar vir geldwassery. Ses jaar van sy vonnis is met voorwaardes vir vyf jaar opgeskort. Die vonnis vir geldwassery is in geheel vir vyf jaar opgeskort. Hy gaan dus effektief sewe jaar sit.

he Voortrekker Road Corridor Improvement District’s (VRCID) eighth annual meeting took place on 24 November. The objectives were to reflect on the past year, approve the annual financial statements, and to thank all partners at the City of Cape Town, the police, NGOs and CID levy payers for their support throughout a very difficult year. Among those mentioned at the AGM, they had the following successes: .

Blitsbok hou Kerspartytjie AVRIL FILLIES ’n Kersparty waar hamburgers en koeldrank aan 500 kinders van Klipheuwel, naby Durbanville, uitgedeel gaan word, word beplan vir voor 20 Desember. Die Kersparty word moontlik gemaak deur die Blitsbok en boorling van Klipheuwel, Angelo Davids, en sy Angelo Davids-Stigting, want hy wil terugploeg in sy gemeenskap. Volgens Henri Brand, direkteur van die stigting, sal die kinders ook gelukspakkies ontvang en wil die hele gemeenskap van Klipheuwel betrek word. Daarom sal die ouer garde ook ’n kospakkie ontvang om hulle in die feestyd te help. Die kospakkie sal basiese bestanddele soos meel, koffie, tee, kookolie, rys, suiker en blikkieskos insluit – goed wat daagliks gebruik word. “Die Covid-19-pandemie het almal geraak, want nie alleen is werkers afgelê nie, maar daar was ook nie altyd geld om kos op die tafel te sit nie.

“Die stigting, wat ’n organisasie is sonder winsbejag, wil probeer om die inwoners van Klipheuwel se gees in die feestyd te lig. “Ons kan dit net moontlik maak met die hulp van skenkers en indien jy ’n bydrae kan maak, sal ons dit waardeer,” sê Brand. Gary van Loggerenberg, betrokke by die o.16-rugbyspan by die Hoërskool Stellenberg in Bellville, het sy hulp aangebied en sal deur radio-onderhoude op Heart FM probeer om nóg geld in te samel om die kospakkies en Kersparty moontlik te maak. “Angelo was ’n leerder en rugbyspeler by die skool en ondanks sy sukses op die rugbyveld sedert hy die skool verlaat het, het hy nooit vergeet waarvandaan hy kom nie. Hy kom kuier gereeld by die skool en help in sy gemeenskap. “Die radio-onderhoude is maar my klein bydrae om sy projek ’n sukses te maak.” Rig navrae aan Henri Brand by 083 500 3803.

First men-only health centre opens A

brand new health centre exclusively aimed at serving men, has recently opened its doors in Cape Town. The Metro Men’s Health Centre was officially opened on Monday 30 November at the Karl Bremer Hospital. The facility, the first of its kind in Cape Town, aims to empower boys and men to lead healthy lives and will be a one-stop shop for wellness and chronic conditions screenings, HIV prevention interventions, treating sexually transmitted diseases, and offering medical male circumcision, the Western Cape health department says. Dr Saadiq Kariem, chief of operations at the department, has encouraged men to put their health first, emphasising the importance of men’s health and its impact on society. “I really want to appeal to all men to prioritise their health. I encourage all men to make use of this facility. It is open to all men, as well as young men. You are all welcome to make use of this facility,” says Kariem. Boys who are aged 15 to 18 years can also access the facility, but they will need a

guardian to accompany them. Juanita Arendse, northern Tygerberg health services director, has welcomed families and men from around the city to make use of the men’s health centre based in Bellville. “This project was birthed in the northern Tygerberg sub-structure, but we recognise the broader need and will be serving men from anywhere in the metro, that is why we have named it the Metro Men’s Health Centre,” Arendse says. Some of the services offered at no cost include health education and promotion; wellness screening; chronic disease screening; voluntary medical male circumcision and aftercare treatment; HIV counselling and testing; condom education and distribution, as well as STI treatment and education. V The health centre is open Monday to Friday from 07:00 until 16:00.

rie geslagte kunstenaars – ’n ouma, dogter en kleindogter – het ’n droom bewaarheid om saam ’n kunsuitstalling van hul uiteenlopende kuns te hou. Delene Kleyn (71), haar dogter, Ilse Jordaan (49) – wat onder haar nooiensvan Kleyn skilder, en kleindogter, Danielle Jordaan (24), het van 20 tot 22 November saam ’n uitstalling van hul kuns in die Greyton Art Walk gehou. “Dit was my droom om saam met my dogter en kleindogter ’n kunsuitstalling te hou; dis nou bewaarheid,” sê Delene. Sy werk by die nie-winsgewende organisasie Shiloh Synergy in Brackenfell, waar sy die projekleier is van die “Back to School”-projek en die “Gifts of Grace”-skryfbehoefteprojek by behoeftige skole. “Dis my roeping om met kinders en hulpbehoewendes te werk, so ek skilder net in my vrye tyd,” sê sy. Delene, wat by haar dogter in Proteahoogte bly, verf al van haar kinderjare af en hou veral van stillewes. Sy het onlangs ook begin om dierelewe te skilder en geniet dit baie, sê sy. “My laaste skildery was van ’n tier. As diereliefhebber is ek bekommerd oor wilde diere wat besig is om uit te sterf. Dis hoe-

kom ek die skildery van ’n tier ‘Facing extinction’ genoem het. Ek wou ’n boodskap oordra,” sê sy. Haar dogter, Ilse, het die polisiediens in 2006 as kaptein ná 16 jaar verlaat “toe die Here haar geroep het om voltyds as professionele kunstenaar te skilder”, sê sy. “Sy het dan ook grootliks die profetiese kunsbeweging in Suid-Afrika aangevuur. Ilse skilder profetiese werke met Bybelse temas – dít wat God haar gee om Sy storie te vertel. “Aan die begin van 2020 het sy duidelik gehoor sy moet die wapenrusting vanuit die Bybel verf. Dit het sy toe in ’n reeks van 21 skilderye gedoen. “Al die diere in haar skilderye het met temas uit die Bybel te doen, en dra ’n sterk boodskap oor,” sê Delene. Danielle Jordaan, die kleindogter, wat onlangs na Tuine in Kaapstad getrek het, het kuns studeer aan die Ruth Prowse School of Art in Kaapstad. Sy bied tans werksessies by koffiewinkels en restaurante, ook in Durbanville, aan en leer mense met koffie verf. “Mense geniet dit baie en vind dit baie pret. Dis soos om met waterverf te werk. Danielle doen kontemporêre kuns,” sê Delene. “Dit was kosbaar vir ons om saam uit te stal,” sê sy.

Sassa confirms office had to close RICHARD ROBERTS @richardjohn_rj


he South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) recently confirmed that it had to close its office’s doors in Bellville after a reported confirmed case of Covid-19. The office had to close its doors on Friday 13 November. Edgemead resident Steven Taylor who visited the offices on the day complained about the poor service he and others apparently had to endure at the hands of staff at the specific offices. “What I witnessed on Friday at Sassa in Bellville is the most undemocratic thing I have seen in this country. “I was there just after 08:00 and when I got there I found people standing outside. When I went to the front door I had the door

slammed in my face by the security guard. I told him that I have an appointment, but he was very aggressive towards me and told me ‘no, he is not letting anyone in’. “A few minutes after that a team leader came out with four security guards telling people to go home, that there had been a case of Covid-19. He was very rude to the people, with many sitting outside for hours and travelling far to be there, just to be told to come back another day. “If there was a Covid-19 case, why were staff casually leaving to go home? Should the health department not be called in to evaluate the situation to do tests in order to decide who can go home and who must be quarantined? Everyone just went home like nothing happened,” Taylor wrote in an email. The Sassa offices are located in Mazzur

Road, Bellville. Sassa confirmed that it is aware of the closure at its Bellville offices on that day due to a confirmed Covid-19 case. “In line with occupational health and safety standards as well as stipulated Covid-19 hygiene protocols for all work places, if a case of Covid-19 is identified, the premises is immediately closed for sanitising and staff must evacuate the premises for this process. “We do understand the inconvenience to clients when any Sassa contact point is closed for sanitising. Clients must be redirected to alternate Sassa contact points of their choice,” Shivani Wahab, director: marketing and communications, explained. The issue of security guards at the Sassa Bellville office treating clients unprofessionally is not acceptable and the matter has been directed to the district senior manager

at the Bellville office to address as a matter of priority, Wahab added. “Covid-19 and the lockdown have created a myriad of operational challenges. Service disruptions are bound to occur, especially with the exponential rise of Covid-19 positive cases in the province recently. “Sassa however remains committed to serving all clients to the best of our ability. We work with an appointment system to mitigate any overcrowding and long queues at contact points. We would like to encourage clients who have enquiries to rather use the Sassa call centre as a platform, and not physically access a contact point unless they have an appointment or have to finalise a new social grant application,” Wahab says.

Kies nugter in feestyd Vir individue wat voorheen gesukkel het met substansafhanklikheid of midde-in ’n probleem is, kan die feestyd ’n uitdagende tydperk wees. Om vooraf besluite te neem oor hoe jy gaan optree in uitdagende situasies, gaan dit vir seker vir jou makliker maak om die versoeking te weerstaan. ’n Nugterheidsprogram om onvervulde verwagtinge, stresvolle gesinsdinamika, of “gebeurtenisvolle vakansiepartytjies” te hanteer in die weke wat voorlê, is dus uiters noodsaaklik.

Nuttige nugtervakansie-wenke . Plak ’n nota teen jou spieël in die badkamer om jouself te herinner aan hoe goed dit voel om nugter te wees. Stel ook vir jouself doelwitte wat jy graag op jou nuwe pad wil bereik. . Hou jou verwagtinge realisties. Ander mense in jou lewe het waarskynlik nie verander nie en baie van die konflikte wat gewoonlik tydens familiebyeenkomste opduik, mag dalk weer opduik. Aanvaar dit en onderdruk die drang om alles en almal te manipuleer. . Beplan ander aktiwiteite as om net ledig rond te sit. Stel aktiwiteite voor wat almal besig en gefokus kan hou soos om saam te gaan stap, bordspeletjies te speel of ou flieks te kyk. Fokus op jou gesin en om aktiwiteite Oefen jou saam met hulle te doen.

Dit help om jou te ondersteun en om sekere versoekings vroegtydig te identifiseer en te weerstaan. . Vermy plekke waar jy weet jy in versoeking gestel gaan word, of ge-“trigger” mag word. Daar is niks verkeerd met ’n rustige vakansietyd nie. Rus, slaap en oefen gereeld. . As almal oor die “goeie ou dae” begin praat, verskoon jouself van die geselskap. Hou jou fokus op jou nuwe lewe in herstel. . Wees baie versigtig saam met wie jy eet en drink. Vermy alle alkohol en hou jou risiko so klein as moontlik. Dit is van kritieke belang om weg te bly van die moontlikheid om terug te val. . Beplan in die goeie tye hoe jy slegte tye gaan hanteer. Skryf in die goeie tye neer wat vir jou werk as die versoeking opduik – byvoorbeeld om ’n vriend te bel, om ’n boek te lees, om te oefen of om te bid. Sodra die drang opduik, kan jy dadelik reageer eerder as om dan te besluit wat jy gaan doen. . Dit is goed om mense te vertel dat jy nou in die herstelproses is. As jy vir mense laat weet dat jy nie meer alkohol of dwelms gebruik nie, mag hulle jou respekteer. Jy kan dalk terselfdertyd ’n inspirasie wees vir ander wat dalk voorheen te bang was om die sprong te neem om ook ’n lewe van nugterheid te kies. .

Só sal dit makliker wees om “nee” te sê. As jy kan, vat jou eie waterbottel of glas vol koeldrank. In hierdie geval sal jy nie na die kroeg hoef te gaan nie. Onthou, die herstelpad voel soms lank en uitdagend, maar met elke “nee” en regte keuse word jy sterker. Kort voor lank word jy die beste weergawe van jouself wat jou familie en geliefdes verdien. – Clyde Schroeder (maatskaplike werker by Ramot Rehabilitasiesentrum in Parow).

Vehicles a concern for years D’Urbanvale and surrounding immediate areas have a major issue which has been ongoing for years. D’Urbanvale is used as a thoroughfare and a racetrack (council has known about this issue for years). We are subject to road hogs pervading our areas. These are individuals who drive/ride high-powered vehicles through D’Urbanvale and along Vissershok Road. Vehicles entering or exiting D’Urbanvale proceed at break-neck speed. Heavy trucks continue to drive along Mosselbankriver as a through road. Is it justified that vehicles (cars and motorcycles) race to the first circle on Vissershok Road at high speed? High revving, back throttle, etcetera. This is besides the fact there is a school right at the circle. I know there are people that have issues and have not quite moved from adolescence to adults. As an example, (Saturday at 11:45) a red Jeep (powerful motor) approached the Vissershok circle turned left into Vissershok towards Durbanville and proceeded at break-neck speed. This is a minute example as this happens multiple times a day. In fact, this abuse also pertains to vehicles turning right towards the N7. Quite frankly, the residents of this area are gatvol of the constant abuse. To the Road Hogs, you have absolutely no respect and no regard for residents who have to keep enduring the abuse. If you have any personal issues, get help. EXTREMELY IRATE RESIDENT D’Urbanvale

Get vagrants off Goodwood streets In the TygerBurger of 25 November, the Goodwood Neigbourhood Watch chair Leona van Wyk said that there are only 25 true vagrants in Goodwood (“Shortage of patrollers”). Lady, I do not know where you live but it is definitely not in Goodwood. Here are literally hundreds of people living in and around Goodwood and they are sleeping and putting up their tents and makeshifts everywhere, even in front of the fire station across the street from me. I have asked time and again when this subject was brought on the cards – the question of ablution facilities for this people – but it is being avoided all the time. In front of the OK Bazaar in Hugo Street is a squatter camp, in Boulevard Street is one, next to Shoprite in Voortrekker Road there is one and how many other places. People urinate everywhere they go and do not even care if anyone sees them. People must walk there. The latest is now that they keep dogs, even on chains, or rather wires, where they squat. Calling the SPCA, I was told that they eat better then the squatters themselves. Food was not the point, if you are homeless you cannot keep animals. If I want to adopt a dog or cat there is an inspection to see how big my yard is, if I have a proper place for the animal to sleep, as a matter of fact they must sleep inside. They must get injections, must be spayed, get a chip and I must pay for them. I am not allowed to walk in the street with my dog without a chain but I am also being told by the SPCA that the dog is only chained when it is peak hour, otherwise they are loose. And the people who give them food are not

necessarily Goodwood people. There is a car who comes every day and gives out bread and clothes to the people living along Boulevard and behind the Roman Catholic church on Giel Basson. That bread and clothes ends up everywhere on the streets because they are not interested in it. They want money that the government now so generously handed out to them every month although they have never worked before, come to your house to beg but never asked for work. They are abusive, drunk, fights, uses foul language – not even to talk about the litter. Get them off our streets or do you want to show the tourists who drive along the streets in the open-air bus how third-world we really are. The City of Cape Town wants tourists. First clean up your city then you invite people, that’s how we do it in our houses, not so? DISGUSTED CITIZEN Richmond Estate

Questions raised on private function Willem De Haan’s letter (“Too easy to step on a racial toe” TygerBurger, 2 December) refers. His simplistic approach to this very contentious matter, requires further comment. The arrangement of a matric farewell falls under the auspices and is the responsibility of the school and its governing body and not any private person(s). There are laws and regulations governing schools and their control boards. As such, a school has an inherent responsibility of control and responsibility at these events which must be complied with and not delegated to whoever. A school which wishes to “subcontract” the arrange-

ments of the event, cannot be faulted as long as the subcontractor abides by official rules and regulations of the school. If it is a multiracial school, events must ipso facto reflect the multi-racialism nature of the school which is naturally reflected in sporting and all other activities of such school. Why on earth would the culmination of 12 years of study in a multiracial environment, require a separatistic approach to the farewell? Granted, private parties may be arranged according to the freedom of association clause as contained in the country’s Constitution, but I think the relevant question to be asked here is why was anybody allowed to arrange a private function while it is the schools responsibility to arrange the function. Willem, methinks you are tending to be a bit too forgiving in this instance. RENÉ H TRUTER Bellville

Substance abuse support stayed Through the national lockdown, the City’s eight substance abuse treatment centres managed to keep their physical and virtual doors open to offer their vital services and support. As a City Health initiative, the programme was deemed an essential service, making it the only alcohol and drug treatment programme in Cape Town during lockdown level 5. Given the unusual circumstances associated with Covid-19, the treatment centres had to adapt and innovate. Some of these adaptations included e-mailing session material to clients, creating WhatsApp support groups, supplying materials to shelters, and providing Covid-19 education in counselling sessions. Covid-19 made it difficult for the centres to host their traditional yearend graduation celebrations for clients and their families. Yet the Parkwood and Albow Gardens facilities were able to host celebration events.

Road repairs are on a roll The City is making great progress in tackling the post-lockdown road maintenance backlogs – but needs your help reporting theft.


apetonians can take pride in the fact that the city’s roads are generally in good repair. That’s no small feat, as the City has (excluding the 150 km of freeway it co-manages with national agencies and Province) about 10 400 km of road to maintain. To put this into perspective, that’s the distance between Cape Town and Melbourne, Australia. The network includes 5 600 km of stormwater systems and around 1 200 bridges and culverts, and its insured value is around R146 billion. However, under level-5 lockdown, roads and stormwater services were not considered essential, and the City’s roads depots could attend to emergencies only. This led to many, many potholes. With heavy rainfall after a prolonged drought, water seeped through the bitumen surfacing into the underlying layers, which resulted in potholes and surfacing failures.


The City’s Roads Department is working hard to address this, and has repaired: • 2 776 potholes during the five-month period from January to May 2020; and • 13 655 potholes during the five-month period from 1 June 2020 until the end of November 2020. However, with pothole repairs, preference is given to heavily used roads with a high impact on the economy, ahead of less-travelled roads in residential areas. Even in “normal” times, the maintenance

requirement is huge. It takes 20 Roads and Stormwater depots citywide and 1 500 staff to maintain roads and stormwater systems, and the City spends over R1,2 billion a year on maintenance and improvements. Unfortunately, more than R4 000 000 of that had to be spent repairing or replacing uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems that power traffic lights at 995 of the City’s 1 578 signalised intersections. The lead-acid batteries that power the UPS units have been stolen, or the units have simply been pointlessly vandalised. Aside from the financial burden, UPS theft and vandalism affects motorists and traffic flow during blackouts. • Residents can report potholes, UPS theft and flooding to the Transport Information Centre on 080 065 6463 (toll-free, 24/7), or the City’s call centre on 0860 103 089.

A total of 58 learner law enforcement officers, seven inspectors and a senior inspector have been deployed in Hanover Park to help enforce by-laws and assist enforcement agencies with crime prevention in the area. The deployment forms part of the City’s Law Enforcement Advancement Plan (LEAP), which is a joint initiative between the City’s Safety and Security Directorate and Province. LEAP aims to ultimately provide the services of 500 officers in support of the under-resourced South African Police Service. So far, 344 officers have been deployed in suburbs where residents have been plagued by crime, including Delft, Khayelitsha, Nyanga, Bishop Lavis and Philippi. In addition to basic policing, the LEAP officers visit schools, businesses and homes to build relationships with community members. Their presence serves as a visible crime deterrent and ensures that lawabiding citizens can expect faster response times to crimes committed in their communities and suburbs.

Making progress possible. Together.

Thank you for your support as we work to clear backlogs


The vehicle and driving licence backlog has been cleared. To avoid queues, please use e-Services. When the hard lockdown was announced in March 2020, all City licensing and vehicle registration offices were immediately closed. As a result, a significant backlog of transactions and bookings built up over the lockdown period, which meant that City staff at licensing and registration departments and offices were faced with huge backlogs when these facilities reopened in June. However, thanks to the commitment of City staff and officials, the majority of these backlogs have now been cleared. It took a Herculean effort, which saw many staff working evenings and weekends. But by the end of October, more than 900 000 vehicle registrations and over 50 000 licencing transactions had been completed, allowing the City’s licensing and registration offices to return to normal and focus on meeting customers’ immediate needs. Despite the backlog having been addressed, there are still periods when customers may need to queue. The City’s customer offices are typically at their busiest over November and December, and customers are advised to avoid the frustration

Water restrictions lifted, but please still conserve Thanks to the collective efforts of everyone in Cape Town, the city is free of droughtlinked water restrictions – for the first time in six years. However, while stringent restrictions have been lifted, South Africa remains a water-constrained country. It is essential that we all continue to do our part to conserve and protect this precious and scarce resource.

of long queues and unavoidable slow service times by following the guidelines below: • If possible, do your business with the City – including vehicle licence renewal – online or via e-Services. If you have not already registered for e-Services, visit www.capetown.gov.za to do so. • For municipal account payments, make use of retail payment options rather than visiting a customer office. You can pay at any Shoprite/Checkers, Pick n Pay, PEP, Woolworths and selected Spar stores, or at any branch of the Post Office. • If you have to visit a customer office, try to arrive as early as possible. • If the lines at a customer office are already long, return later if you can. • Pensioners (65 and older) and people with disabilities receive preferential treatment at all customer offices. All visitors to customer offices will be required to undergo Covid-19 screening on entry, and to follow all health and safety protocols. Wearing a mask is compulsory. Many customer offices will be closed on certain days over the festive season.

Residents and businesses are reminded that the permanent regulations contained in the Water By-law still apply across Cape Town, regardless of the restriction level. Municipal water may be used in gardens only before 09:00 or after 18:00, but never to hose down paved areas. • The regulations can be accessed at www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater or www.capetown.gov.za/waterregulations.

“High” there: The new 56 m turntable ladders can access a 22-storey building.

Hot new kit for Fire and Rescue The City’s Fire and Rescue Service is improving its ability to fight fires and save lives, thanks to planned investment in a range of new and replacement vehicles over the coming two years. Already, the service has taken delivery of 99 vehicles, including four 56 m heavy-duty mobile aerial firefighting and rescue-lift turntable ladders. These appliances are able to rescue 18 people at a time from a 22-storey building within just 12 minutes. They are also equipped with firefighting equipment

and a cage to help extinguish fires in high-rise buildings. Other vehicles acquired include water tankers and rescue vehicles. In the current financial year, the service will receive an additional 34 vehicles, including foam tankers. The recruitment of more than 100 seasonal firefighters is also nearing completion. These dedicated individuals will offer valuable support to the City’s permanent firefighters during the challenging summer months.

For the seventh consecutive year, Cape Town has been ranked as South Africa’s most trusted metro by the Consulta Citizen Satisfaction Index. The accolade, which comes hot on the heels of the city’s recognition as the most sustainable metro in South Africa by Ratings Afrika in August, saw Cape Town achieve an overall score of 66 out of 100. This was an improvement on the 2019 score of 64,1, and is more than 10 points higher than the average score of 55,7 for all national metros. Notably, the City scored the highest in the category of trust, achieving 72 out of 100, which is 8,6 points above the average.

With the summer season upon us, we are seeing a rise in Covid-19 infections, so it is clear we cannot let our guard down. It is vital for our continued economic recovery that we continue to be responsible by wearing a mask and practising social distancing. It is extremely important that each of us to play our part for the benefit of all Capetonians. Let us continue to show one another respect and kindness. We can make 2021 better than any year Cape Town has ever seen, with your continued support! #OneCityTogether – Executive Mayor Dan Plato


The City has attended to more than 150 000 electricity service requests since June, all the while adhering to Covid-19 health and safety regulations. Due to reduced capacity as a result of the national lockdown, the Electricity Generation and Distribution Department had to prioritise streetlight outages, power outages and instances where electricity faults were a safety hazard to members of the public. As a result, some service requests had to be flagged for later attention. In recent months, the Department has made a significant effort to catch up on the resultant backlogs. While there may still be some delays in responding to certain service requests, the City continues to work tirelessly to bring its turnaround times down to the one or two days residents had become used to. The fixing of individual streetlights has also been phased in again, and backlogs in this regard are being attended to.

you for your courage and kindness as we navigated our way through the pandemic. As seen in municipalities around the country, Covid-19 has affected service delivery. Our efforts have, however, been ramped up following an easing of the lockdown. Our staff have processed more than a million transactions since June 2020, including motor vehicle licensing and renewals, and have worked hard to clear the backlog. This is more than the 100 000 transactions per month that we process

under normal circumstances. We have also begun to fix the thousands of potholes resulting from a particularly rainy season. Preventative maintenance and repairs were first limited by the weather, and then by the early lockdown regulations, which declared road maintenance staff as non-essential workers, thereby preventing our teams from reporting for duty. Over recent weeks, I have personally been visiting teams out on duty to check in on and boost the efforts of our city Roads teams. I have also gone out to communities and joined our Solid Waste staff to reboot my citywide clean-up campaign. Work continues to clean and maintain parks and open spaces across Cape Town. Both City teams and appointed service providers are hard at work mowing and cutting grass.


An electrifying response

A message from the Executive Mayor, Dan Plato


Sparkling service: Backlogs in streetlight repair are being addressed.

his year has been a challenging one for all of us. We've all felt the impact of Covid-19 on our lives and in our neighbourhoods. The national regulations have also affected the City's ability to deliver services to our communities. However, the end of the year remains an opportunity to reflect on the year gone by. The year 2020 was not one any of us could have predicted, and we may not have achieved the goals we had set for our own lives. But it has allowed us to return our focus to the most important things in life. The challenges we faced enabled us to be more responsive and caring towards one another. Capetonians are resilient by nature and have displayed this quality on countless occasions. I want to applaud

Making progress possible. Together.

The complicated business of bins With more than 850 000 wheelie bins in use across Cape Town, the City’s Solid Waste Management teams have their work cut out for them ensuring that residents and businesses have their trash removed every week. And when you consider the numbers involved in this collection process, it’s clear just how dedicated the refuse collection team members are: • No less than 129 specialised bin-lifting refuse-compacting trucks are on the city’s roads every single day. • Each truck in this fleet costs around R4 million and travels approximately 3 million kilometres per year. • Each truck is manned by a driver and four-person crew. • The crew members cover about 2,3 million kilometres per year on foot, rain or shine, collecting wheelie bins and arranging them for emptying into the trucks. • The trucks complete about 45 million bin lifts per year. • Refuse is offloaded at six refuse transfer stations or sanitary landfill sites across Cape Town. • A total of approximately 570 million kilograms of refuse is collected in this way every year. So, the next time you spot a member of a refuse collection team in your area, be sure to give them a wave of thanks for the excellent work they do.

Some good jobs news According to the quarterly Labour Force Survey for the third quarter of 2020, Cape Town’s expanded unemployment rate of 29,1% is the lowest of all South African metros. The City attributes this achievement to its ongoing investment in job creation over the past six months, and its work to attract business investment into the city and region. Between April and September 2020, the City’s strategic business partners (SBPs) collectively facilitated R8,8 billion’s worth of investment, created 4 980 jobs and trained 1 366 people. This was despite the lockdown and resulting economic economic downturn faced by the entire country.

his summer, visit one of Cape Town’s many beautiful beaches, swimming pools, nature reserves and resorts. Here are a

The City has appointed 330 seasonal beach lifeguards and 290 municipal pool lifeguards. This costs about R48 million in lifeguard salaries and R300 000 for specialised personal protective equipment (PPE) and Covid-19 related training.

Clovelly, Danger, Fish Hoek, Gordon’s Bay, Granger Bay, Harmony Park, Hout Bay, Kogel Bay, Llandudno, Macassar, Maiden’s Cove, Melkbaai, Melkbosstrand, Milnerton, Milnerton Lagoon, Mnandi, Monwabisi, Muizenberg, Silwerstroomstrand, Strand, Strandfontein and Sunrise. Shark Spotters will be on duty daily at 11 beaches: Blue Waters, Clovelly, Dappat se Gat, Fish Hoek, Glencairn, Klippies Bay, Kogel Bay, Rocky, St James, Strand and Surfer’s Corner.

Beaches City lifeguards will be stationed at 26 bathing areas from 10:00 to 18:00 daily until 12 April 2021. Please swim only at beaches where lifeguards are present, and only in the areas demarcated for swimming. If you are not a strong swimmer, keep to the shallow water. Do not allow children to visit the beach unsupervised. The beaches monitored by lifeguards are: Big Bay, Bikini, Camps Bay, Clifton 4th,

Swimming pools Most of the City’s 35 swimming pools have also reopened, though some remain closed due to vandalism and theft. Patrons will be required to undergo screening and sanitise before they are allowed entry, and must adhere to water safety rules and Covid-19 protocols, which allow only 50% capacity at any time. Showers at pools are not available, as per Covid19 regulations.

few pointers to ensure everyone has a safe time in the sun.

Nature reserves The City manages 23 nature reserves and conservation areas. Many of them home to rare and endangered flora and fauna of the Cape Floristic Region – the smallest and richest of the world’s six floral kingdoms. Reserves provide for many activities, including walks, birdwatching, fishing, hikes, trail running, mountain biking, surfing, boating, sailing, sandboarding, and 4x4 off-road driving. Resorts Bookings for resorts are open. Early booking is essential, as resorts are only allowed to operate at 50% capacity. Unfortunately, camping sites will remain closed due to health risks. However, day picnic areas will be available between 10:00 and 18:00. The City will prioritise regular cleaning and sanitising at all public amenities, but visitors are also asked to do their part by observing Covid-19 safety protocols.

CITYNEWS 3 City libraries are back in business The City’s Library Services are gradually returning to a full service offering, with 87 facilities now allowing walk-in visitors, browsing, two-hour study sessions, and internet access via the SmartCape system. Library staff are strictly enforcing Covid-19 protocols, and all visitors are required to wear a mask, sanitise their hands and observe social distancing. Some libraries are still only offering a drop-and-collect service. For details of the services offered by libraries in your area, as well as the capacity limits of each facility, please visit https://opac.capetown.gov.za/. The following operating hours and borrowing periods currently apply for all libraries: • Operating hours: Monday to Friday 09:00-16:00 and Saturday 09:00–12:00 • Loan period: 30 days • Renewal: One renewal for an additional 30 days • Borrowing privileges: 20 items including five audiovisual items (CDs/DVDs) • No reservations or inter-library loans will be done at present.

Easier ECD registration Early childhood development (ECD) is recognised as the foundation for success in future learning. However, only 30% of ECD centres in Cape Town are registered. This means more than 2 000 are unregistered and, thus, unable to comply with regulations and access support. The City’s Social Development and Early Childhood Development Department has developed an online tool to help ECD centres register. For more information, please e-mail SocialDevelopment@capetown.gov.za.

BPO sector support

Beware affordable-housing scams

No festive switch-on

The City will be putting R55 million towards the Cape Skills and Employment Accelerator project, which will be offered in conjunction with the National Skills Fund, Province, CapeBPO and the private sector. The project will create over 3 000 employment opportunities in the fastgrowing business process outsourcing (BPO) sector, providing training and placement support for graduates. Over the last three years, R25 million in funding has helped to create more than 5 000 new jobs.

Registering on the City’s Housing Needs Register is the first step that residents need to take to be considered for the City’s various affordable-housing opportunities. The City considers housing opportunities on a first-come, first-served basis and takes age and special needs into consideration. Qualifying beneficiaries are placed on the register and are allocated opportunities as they become available, in accordance with the City’s allocation policy. The process is systematic and highly regulated to ensure fairness.

However, residents should be aware of criminal scams. The City urges applicants to be aware of the following: • There is no requirement to make any payment to have your name placed on the register. You also don’t have to pay to receive a state-subsidised unit if you qualify for one of these. • If you are asked to pay for a place on the register, or for a plot of City-owned land, it is a scam. Please report the person to the City immediately. • Be aware of syndicates who try to sell land that does not belong to them.

For the past five decades, Cape Town has ushered in the festive season with its signature festive lights switch-on. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 safety regulations relating to large gatherings, this traditional event will not take place in 2020. However, in an effort to support Cape Town’s events industry, several smaller festive events are being considered as part of the inner-city revitalisation programme. These will be hosted in line with lockdown restrictions and health and safety protocols.


KORTLIKS Die Stad het 330 seisoenale lewensredders vir diens op die Kaapse strande en 290 lewensredders by munisipale swembaddens aangestel.

Making progress possible. Together.

New title deeds handed over More than 6 000 to become new homeowners in 2020.

Switch over to prepaid power The City has a R40 million programme aimed at converting old electricity meters to prepaid meters. These meter upgrades are done at no cost to residents and property owners. Prepaid meters give consumers direct control over their electricity usage and costs. Contrary to widespread belief, prepaid meters do not make electricity more expensive. In fact, switching to a prepaid meter allows qualifying residents to move over to the City’s subsidised Lifeline tariff, which offers them access to financial aid and free electricity units, and reduces their monthly utility costs. The programme has been running for the past seven years. The areas targeted for prepaid meter upgrades in the coming months include Bellville South, Manenberg, Bonteheuwel, Langa, Crossroads, Steenberg and Hanover Park.


n Monday 16 November 2020, a total of 88 residents of Bonteheuwel, Bishop Lavis and surrounding areas were the happy recipients of the historical title deeds to the City-owned properties they occupy. The handover formed part of the City’s commitment to provide 6 000 historical title deeds to beneficiaries by the end of 2020. In October and the first half of November, more than 1 100 of these title deeds were handed over to beneficiaries from Blackheath, Happy Valley, Bloekombos and Wallacedene. A title deed is legal proof of ownership. It provides the beneficiary with a formal home address and recognises their ownership of the property. This allows them to leave the property to their family members when they pass away. Empowering residents who were previously denied access to property ownership is a key component of the City’s commitment to bringing about redress. The City seeks to provide as many homeownership opportunities as it can. This it does both through the transfer of Cityowned properties and the development of new housing opportunities, such as the Downs housing project. This R77 million project is on track to

Best destination in Africa – again Cape Town has been awarded yet another accolade as a leading tourism destination. At the recent prestigious 2020 World Travel Awards, Cape Town was again named “Africa’s Leading Festival and Events Destination”. This is the third consecutive year that Cape Town has received the award. This year the city outshone a number of very strong competitors to take top honours, among them Accra, Durban, Johannesburg, Kigali, Lagos, Marrakech, Nairobi and Rabat. The City’s Events Permit Office has already received 80 new event applications since the announcement of alert level 1 in late September.

Home at last: From left: Executive Mayor Alderman Dan Plato, title deed recipient Rebecca Blouw, Councillor Mercia Kleinsmith and Alderman Grant Twigg. meet its goal of providing housing for 587 beneficiaries by the middle of 2022. The project is spread across five development sites in Manenberg and has already delivered 314 Breaking New Ground (BNG) houses to delighted beneficiaries. The Downs is a good example of the City’s commitment to providing affordable housing on well-located land near public transport, employment opportunities and economic nodes.

All five sites are close to Govan Mbeki Road, which is a major transport route to and from central Cape Town and the southern suburbs. The project is also close to a library, schools, community halls and public recreation spaces. The selection of beneficiaries for the housing project has been done in accordance with the City’s Allocation Policy and the Housing Needs Register to ensure fair and equitable allocation of homes.

Burial tariff myth

City workshops help small businesses grow and prosper

The City is aware of social media posts implying that an extra tariff is levied for after-hours Muslim burials. The after-hours burial requirements of Cape Town’s Muslim community are accommodated at no extra cost at the Klip Road, Wallacedene, Delft, Welmoed, Maitland, Muizenberg, Modderdam, Khayelitsha, Ocean View and Atlantis cemeteries. The tariff at all City cemeteries is R920 per grave, irrespective of the time at which the burial takes place.

The City is committed to supporting small businesses and helping them succeed and grow. Recently, the City teamed up with the national Department of Small Business Development to visit entrepreneurs and small, medium and micro-enterprise (SMME) owners in Mfuleni, Athlone and Gugulethu to encourage them to apply for funding through the Township and Rural Enterprise Programme (TREP). TREP provides SMMEs in various economic sectors with information about

important aspects of business operations and expansion, including buying business equipment, accessing working capital, con-


trolling the cost of production inputs and applying for credit. The programme complements the SMME support provided by the City through its Business Hub. Launched in 2019, the Business Hub helps entrepreneurs set up or improve their businesses and connects them with business partners, funders, support organisations and municipal departments. • More information about the City’s Business Hub is available at https://www.investcapetown.com.

On the A-list for climate action The City has again made the Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) Cities A-list of best-performing global cities, scoring an A for its climate change data, transparency and action. Cape Town was one of only 88 cities worldwide, and the only city in Africa, to receive the highest rating for the CDP Cities submission in 2020. The top ranking underpins and validates the City’s process of developing a new Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan, which is scheduled to be finalised by early 2021. The strategy recognises climate change as a key risk to the economy, society and environment, but also sees it as an opportunity to drive transformation to a green economy.


Altesaam 88 inwoners van Bonteheuwel, Bishop Lavis en omgewing het in November titelaktes ontvang vir die Stadseiendomme waarin hulle woon. Die oorhandiging maak deel uit van die Stad se verbintenis om teen die einde van die jaar 6 000 historiese titelaktes aan begunstigdes te voorsien. In ander behuisingsnuus is die Downs-projek van R77 miljoen op koers om teen die middel van 2022 Breaking New Ground- (BNG-)behuisingsgeleenthede aan 587 begunstigdes te voorsien. Die Stad onderneem ’n program van R40 miljoen om ou elektrisiteitsmeters in koopkragmeters om te skakel. Hierdie meteromskakelings word gratis vir inwoners of eiendomseienaars gedoen.

Die Stad is bewus van plasings op sosiale media wat impliseer dat ’n ekstra tarief vir nauurse Moslem-begrafnisse gehef word. Die tarief by die Stad se begraafplase is R920 per graf, ongeag wanneer die teraardebestelling plaasvind. Die Stad is daartoe verbind om kleinsake deur die program vir township- en landelike ondernemings en ander inisiatiewe van sy sakesentrum te ondersteun.

Spesialis sê virus is nie moeg nie CARINA ROUX

Dr Emille Reid (voor) ondersteun nog steeds die inisiatief genaamd “Frontline Fridays”, waarin The Daily Coffee Shop koffie en ’n koekie aan gesondheidswerkers verskaf as blyk van waardering.


lmal is moeg vir Covid-19, maar die infeksiesiekte-spesialis dr. Emille Reid sê die virus raak nie moeg nie. Reid woon al sowat 20 jaar in Kuilsrivier en sy praktyk is tans by die Netcare Kuilsrivier-hospitaal. As deel van infeksiesiektes en kritieke sorg wat ook onder sy veld van spesialisasie val, sien hy gereeld die siekste van die siekes, ‘‘maar die Covid-19-pandemie was vir my fisies en waarskynlik ook psigies die ergste gebeurtenis in my hele loopbaan”. Dit was ’n nagmerrie toe die hoësorgeenheid heeltyd vol was, sê hy. “Ek dink ons almal het uitgesien na ’n bietjie vakansie, ’n blaaskans. Die gevalle wat nou weer toeneem, is eintlik skrikwekkend.” Na die kruin begin afplat het en ook langtermynpasiënte uiteindelik ontslaan is, het dinge vir ’n tydjie meer ontspanne verloop. Reid sê in dié tyd het hulle heelwat siektetoestande gesien wat “nagelaat” is, omdat mense doktersafsprake uitgestel het. “Dit is ’n teleurstelling om die laaste twee (drie) weke ’n noemenswaardige toename in Covid-19-gevalle en hospitalisasies te sien.” Reid sê sy boodskap was nog altyd, ongeag of ons sielkundig of fisiek moeg is, die virus raak nie moeg nie. “Hy wag vir ons om ons swakhede te wys, wat nou maar is om nie die reëls van afstand hou, hande was, masker dra en ontsmet te volg nie.” Weens mense se ontspanne gedrag verras die stygende infeksies hom nie, maar hy sê dis sleg dat dit nou gebeur wanneer mense vir familie wil gaan kuier. Hy reken daar lê nog moeilike maande voor en sê hy beny nie die politici wat nog moeilike besluite sal moet neem nie. Met die Oos-Kaap se hospitale wat weer vol word, sê Reid die personeellede word ook siek. Genoeg beddens is net een aspek. Mense wat onder volgehoue druk werk, is meer vatbaar om siek te word. Plaaslik en elders is Reid bewus van mense wat verpleging verlaat het omdat hulle nie meer kans gesien

het nie. “Ons het ’n groep mense wat uitgebrand is. Dit is waar die probleem gaan inkom in die tweede golf – (ek) kan nie dink hoe ons deur nog ’n ronde gaan (kom) met soortgelyke of hoër intensiteit as die eerste golf nie,” sê hy. Met sowat 20% van Suid-Afrikaners wat MIV-positief is, was daar aanvanklik kommer dat die pasiënte meer vatbaar sou wees vir die Sars-CoV 2-virus, maar Reid sê soos met varkgriep (H1N1-virus) in 2009, is die teendeel ervaar. Hy sê wat bygedra het tot sterftes met varkgriep was eerder hoë ouderdom of komorbiditeite (onderliggende siektetoestande), soos ook die geval blyk te wees by Covid-19. Hy sê “soveel as driekwart” van die baie siek Covid-19-pasiënte wat by hulle opgeneem is, was mans. “Ek het gek geskeer en gesê dis ’n vroulike virus met die naam Covidina, maar nee, ons is onseker hoekom dit die geval is.” Daar is gedink vroue is dalk net versigtiger, maar Reid sê tog is baie van die vroue naby aan die mans wat in ’n stryd om lewe gewikkel was, ook positief getoets, maar het hulle nie so siek geword nie. “Die aantal MIV-pasiënte wat so siek geword het dat hulle gehospitaliseer moes word, was bitter min.” Reid sê “meer as 90%

van pasiënte in hoësorg was diabete”. Die afgelope paar maande het hulle amper daagliks meer geleer oor die Sars-CoV-2 virus en hoe om pasiënte beter te behandel. Waar daar in die begin ’n kwessie was oor ventilators, het die gebruik van hoëvloei nasale suurstof, wat nie-indringend toegedien word, nou algemeen geword. Reid sê van die vroeë regulasies wat polities bepaal is, het wel die druk op hospitale verlig, maar ook veroorsaak dat mense laat vir behandeling opgedaag het. “Die boodskap: ‘bly by die huis en kom net hospitaal toe as jy nie meer kan asemhaal nie’ was baie nadelig.” Sommige pasiënte was reeds premorbied. “Sou daardie individu ’n week vroeër gekom het, was die uitkoms beter. Ek dink ons het seker meer as vier maande laas hier (in die hospitaal) iemand aan die dood afgestaan omrede die mense vroeër presenteer.” Ook vroeër toediening van medikasie soos “steroïede wat ’n groot invloed op die siekte het”, is beter, sê Reid. Sogenaamde “verlengde (long) Covid” is iets wat hulle ook sien waar mense wat ’n simptomatiese infeksie gehad het ná maande nog oorblyfsels van siekte toon, soos algehele tamheid, hoofpyn of gebrekkige longkapasiteit. Reid sê sy eie longkapasiteit het drie maande geneem om te herstel nadat hy

Vrou neem leisels by D’ville-kinderhuis ESMÉ ERASMUS Die huidige waarnemende bestuurder van die Durbanvillekinderhuis, Johanna Strauss, is vanaf 1 Desember aangestel as die nuwe bestuurder van die kinderhuis. Strauss, voorheen bestuurder van bemarking en fondswerwing, het die afgelope sewe maande as tussentydse bestuurder diens gedoen nadat die vorige bestuurder se dienste skielik beëindig is. Jan Slabbert, wie se dienste op 23 Junie ná ’n tugverhoor beëindig is, is in Januarie vanjaar in die pos aangestel Johanna Strauss nadat die vorige hoof, Rudolf Bezuidenhout, op 10 Mei verlede jaar aan ’n hartaanval gesterf het. “Bezuidenhout is ’n passievolle mens met meer as 10 jaar ervaring in kindersorgdienste. Daarbenewens het sy 20 jaar bestuurservaring,” lui ’n mediaverklaring deur Louise Coetzee, huidige bestuurder van bemarking en fondswerwing by die kinderhuis. “Sy het die afgelope 10 jaar in

haar hoedanigheid as bestuurder van bemarking en fondswerwing by die kinderhuis suksesvolle korporatiewe vennootskappe beding, asook effektiewe bemarkingsveldtogte aangepak,” sê Coetzee. “Sy het in haar tyd as tussentydse bestuurder by die kinderhuis ’n sterk verhouding met die personeel en die kinders opgebou,” sê sy. Op die vraag wat haar dryf, het Strauss gesê sy kan in haar nuwe hoedanigheid haar passie uitleef om met kinders te werk. “My eentot-een gesprekke met hulle, hul bereidwilligheid om hul probleme met my te bespreek en hul suksesse te deel, was ’n groot seën. “Ek weet dat ek waarde kan toevoeg tot die organisasie en die kinders se lewe,” sê Strauss. Sy is tans met verlof, maar TygerBurger beoog om in die nuwe jaar ’n volledige onderhoud met Strauss te voer.

in Junie ernstig siek was met Covid-19. Hy is bewus van gevalle waar mense nooit besef het hulle het Covid-19 gehad nie en maande later gepresenteer het met moegheid, kortasem en ontsteking van die hartspier. “Dit was bitter sleg,” sê Reid oor sy eie siekte-ervaring. Hy het die aanvanklike diarree, lyfseer en hoofpyn toegeskryf aan te min slaap totdat hy koors ontwikkel en kortasem geraak het. “Was dit enige ander infeksie, sou ek uit my kennis geweet het wat om te verwag, maar dit is die onsekerhede oor die uitkoms en verloop wat ’n mens psigies eintlik knou.” Dit was vir hom belangrik om daaroor te praat en die angs te verwerk om sielkundig weer sterker te voel voor hy kon terugkeer na sy werk. Hy is dankbaar dat sy gesin gesond gebly het, maar sê sy twee tienerkinders wou weet hoekom hy wou terugkeer na ’n plek wat amper sy dood veroorsaak het. Die gesprek met sy kinders het gegaan oor wat die verskil tussen werk en ’n roeping is. “Maar voor dit moes ek myself oortuig dat dit die rede is hoekom ek wou terugkom.” Oor die entstowwe wat tans opslae maak, is sy optimisme gedemp. Een van die redes waarom mRNA (‘‘messenger RNA”)-entstowwe nog nooit tevore goedgekeur is nie, is omdat dit hoogs onstabiel is. Dit moet by baie lae temperature gestoor word, wat “massiewe logistieke probleme inhou vir almal, veral in derdewêreldlande”. Daarby sal mense twee dosisse (jaarliks) moet ontvang. Hy sê as jy die som maak oor die hoeveelheid dosisse wat vervaardig moet word, wat twee keer jaarliks aan sowat 90% van die wêreldbevolking toegedien sou moes word om herdersimmuniteit te bereik, is dit duidelik ’n enorme uitdaging. “Miskien in die volgende vyf of ses jaar – mits die inenting suksesvol is.” As ons dalk hopelik teen volgende jaar toegang sou hê tot ’n beperkte hoeveelheid entstowwe gaan dit volgens prioriteit verskaf moet word, soos byvoorbeeld eers aan gesondsheidswerkers, sê hy.

Illustreerder stap ompad na wenpad ESMÉ ERASMUS


Vryskut-illustreerder van Durbanville – die man wat die gesig gegee het aan die bekroonde kinderboekreekse, die Agent Snoet- en Cowboy Koekemoerreekse, het met ’n ompad gestap na sy suksesvolle loopbaan. Alistair Ackermann (43) van Durbanville, wat die tweede boek geïllustreer het in die Ouma Hester-reeks vir NB-uitgewers, Ouma Hester en die Arnosterfant, wat onlangs gepubliseer is, was onseker wat om met sy lewe te doen ná matriek, maar sy liefde vir teken het gelukkig die oorhand gekry. Ackermann het in 1995 aan die Hoërskool Brackenfell gematrikuleer. “Ek was in daardie stadium onseker wat ek wou doen as beroep en het verskillende werke gedoen – onder meer kunsklasse gegee, selfs by McDonalds gewerk vir ’n paar jaar ... ha-ha-ha, ja! En in dieselfde tyd IT gedoen,” sê hy laggend. “Ek het nie ná skool gaan swot nie, aangesien daar nie iets was wat my aandag getrek het nie. Ek het wel ’n paar kursusse geloop in sagteware vir grafiese ontwerp. Onthou, in daardie jare was digitale werk ’n nuwerige ding,” sê hy. Hy het onder meer ook tot onlangs vir tien jaar klas gegee in basiese grafiese ontwerp by die Stellenbosch Academy of Design & Photography. “Hoewel ek my hele lewe lank lief is vir teken, het ek eers in 2001 besluit om illustrasie as beroep te beoefen. Ek het dag en nag gewerk om ’n portefeulje bymekaar te sit en dit aan verskillende uitgewers gestuur met die hoop om ’n deurbraak in die bedryf te

maak,” sê hy. LAPA-uitgewers het hom kort daarna gekontak om François Bloemhof se Agent Snoet en die Botterdiamant te illustreer. “Dit was die beste dag van my lewe en die begin van my loopbaan as vryskut-illustreerder,” sê hy. Sy talent het sommer van meet af aandag getrek. Hy en François Bloemhof het ’n CP Hoogenhout-toekenning ontvang vir kinderliteratuur in 2002/2003 vir dié boek. “Ek het ook al drie ATKV-Woordveertjies ontvang vir Agent Snoet en die Groen Genugtig, Cowboy Koekemoer van die Klein Karoo en Cowboy Koekemoer van die Klein Karoo en die Seerower van Watsenaam. “Ek en Francois Bloemhof het vyf Agent Snoet-boeke saam gedoen. Ek het ook aan vier Cowboy Koekemoerboeke saam met Henry Ferreira gewerk en het onlangs aan Janie Oosthuysen se Ouma Hester-boeke begin werk,” sê hy. “Tussenin het ek ook aan ’n Kinderbybel gewerk, wat Susan Goosen saamgestel het, en dan is daar ’n klomp ander kinderboeke en opvoedkundige boeke wat in skole gebruik word,” brei hy uit. Op ’n vraag van TygerBurger sê hy dis onmoontlik om ’n gunsteling te kies – “elkeen was vir my lekker. Agent Snoet was heerlik om te doen omdat ek kans gekry het om ’n bietjie James Bond te speel”. “Cowboy Koekemoer was weer lekker want ek is my hele lewe mal oor cowboys en om ’n kameelperd te teken wat allerhande snaakse goed doen, was baie pret,” sê hy. “Ouma Hester was weer lekker want ek hou baie van avontuurverhale met over the top-voertuie en villains. “Dis regtig moeilik om te kies, aangesien

“Ek het lank eers potloodsketse gedoen voor ek dit op die rekenaar ingekleur het, maar deesdae is alles sommer net digitaal.”

ek regtig my hart en siel in elke projek sit – selfs Alistair al moet ek proefbuise en Ackermann, ’n bunsenbranders vir vryskut-illuskoolboeke teken,” sê streerder, met hy. die eerste Met sy eerste Ouma twee Ouma Hester-boek in die reeks Hester-boeke het hy die illustrasie in die reeks. oorgeneem by die oorspronklike illustreerder, Alex van Houwelingen (35), nadat laasgenoemde op 5 April vanjaar aan kanker oorlede is. “Ek het ongelukkig nooit die voorreg gehad om vir Alex te ontmoet nie, maar dink dit was vir ons almal in die bedryf ’n groot verlies toe hy oorlede is. “Al het jy iemand nooit ontmoet nie, voel dit tog soms asof jy hulle deur hul werk ken,” sê hy. “Alex se karakters was pret om te teken en ek is mal oor hul ontwerp. Dit was ook lekker om in ’n styl te teken wat anders is as wat ek gewoonlik doen. Die uitdaging was en is om by sy styl te hou, veral as daar nuwe karakters geskep moes word,” sê hy. Die eerste boek in die reeks, Ouma Hester en die Getawaykar, is op 10 Julie vanjaar gepubliseer. Ouma Hester en die Arnosterfant is in Oktober gepubliseer. Ackermann werk tans aan die illustrasies vir die derde boek in die reeks, Ouma Hester en die Dreadnought, wat in April 2021 gepubliseer word. “My styl is êrens tussen semirealisties en cartoony, afhangend van die

projek. Disney en Dreamworks se animasiestyle het ’n groot rol gespeel in hoe ek teken, asook sekere comic book-kunstenaars. “Ek het lank eers potloodsketse gedoen voor ek dit op die rekenaar ingekleur het, maar deesdae is alles sommer net digitaal. “As ek dink hoe ek begin het om in potlood, ink en waterverf boeke te doen en bladsye oor en oor moes doen as daar foute insluip, is ek vandag tog te dankbaar vir die undo-knoppie,” sê hy.

Youth Music Festival free online A

rtscape and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO), with the support of the City of Cape Town, have ensured the 49th Western Cape Youth Music Festival will be celebrated this year. This annual event is a highlight of the classical music calendar and gives young, exceptionally talented instrumentalists and singers the opportunity of performing with an orchestra on a professional stage. As it was not possible to have live auditions, musicians were invited to submit online videos of the work they would play at the concert. The criteria were that they are bona fide music students, performed at a very high standard, and were resident or studying music in the Western Cape. Nine extraordinarily talented musicians were selected to perform with the CPO, conducted by Brandon Phillips. The concert is approximately 80 minutes long and has been recorded for Artscape’s YouTube channel and Fine Music Radio (FMR). In preparation for the recording, the

Sequel of unique SA comedy on at Baxter Television actress Chantal Stanfield and director Megan Furniss once again team up to bring sequel uniquely South African comedy, From Koe’siestes To Kneidlach – With Kids! to the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio from Tuesday 22 December to 9 January at 20:15. Written and performed by Stanfield (Getroud met rugby, Binnelanders) with music compiled by RJ Benjamin and produced by Kizara Kreative,


this kosher comedy follows the bizarre, funny and true story of what happens when a girl from the Cape Flats falls in love with a Jewish boy from Joburg’s East Rand. She finds herself in the middle of a culture, heritage and traditions, vastly different from her own, while she shares and celebrates her very colourful background too. From Koe’siestes To Kneidlach – With Kids! picks up a few years after the mixed-racemixed-everything happy couple get married and ride off into the shabbat sunset. Now there’s a “beige” baby

on the way with a myriad of cultural, religious and familial issues to navigate – from the minefield of beautiful names and their unfortunate companion nicknames from the Flats; a proud “bossiekop” dealing with her child’s “gladde hare” (straight hair); celebrating Christmas and Hannukah while explaining barakat to the Jewish in-laws – to how to avoid getting mistaken for the nanny. Along the way audiences will meet interesting characters like the omnipresent voice of her mother, her gay best friend and nosy neighbours

and several others. The original production From Koe’siestes To Kneidlach had a four-week season at The Baxter in 2017. All performances will be limited to fifty percent capacity, with Covid-19 protocols in place. Arrive at least an hour before the start to avoid delays. No performances on 24, 25 December and 1 January. V Ticket prices range from R80 to R150 with discounted block bookings and student and pensioner prices at R110. Booking is through Webtickets on 086 111 0005, online at www.webtickets.co.za or at Pick n Pay stores.

Funds needed for centre in D’ville ESMÉ ERASMUS


hey say it takes a village to raise a child, but by buying a brick for R200 the whole community of Durbanville and surrounds can take part in “raising” the vulnerable children in Fisantekraal. The Father’s Heart Community Development, an orphan and vulnerable child care organisation working in the community of Fisantekraal since early 2019, wants to buy a piece of land of 6 000 m² in Boabab Street from Garden Cities to build a multi-purpose community centre. They have already managed to raise R250 000, thanks to generous donations, of the R500 000 needed to buy the land. By selling bricks at R200 in a competition with grand prizes they hope to raise the outstanding R250 000. According to Jill Carolisse, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of The Father’s Heart Community Development, they urgently need more space to accommodate all the children. The organisation, which currently leases premises in Fisantekraal, offers support and parent training to the foster mothers of about 25 children in Fisantekraal, an afterschool service to children, as well as a mentorship programme to about 40 young boys. “We have to run the mentorship programme on the streets in Fisantekraal, because the space at our current premises is limited,” she says. “Currently we have 28 children in our afterschool programme – 25 of whom are from foster families and seven foster mothers we work with. “There is an eighth mother we are assisting, but her children haven’t formally been contracted in on our programmes as yet as we cannot accommodate her five children at our premises due to Covid-19 regulations,” she says.

Children are assisted with their homework in the afterschool centre. The organisation also offers a leadership programme for adults and teens. “About 50 people have benefited from this so far,” she says. For a boy (13), who joined the programme earlier this year, it has been life-changing. “He has never been to school, but has such a hunger for learning. Our tutors started working with him and within a day or two he was writing his name and has now started writing sentences and is learning to read. “The absolute joy on his face when he first wrote his name was indescribable,” Carolisse says. “We also provided him with books and resources to practise at home. He is always the first child there in the afternoon, and has become my husband’s little assistant. It has

been amazing to see his confidence grow, his aggression with the world recede – anger is often a result of the trauma they experience – and the respectful way in which he now engages with girls,” she says. “Currently, we are having to turn children away because we just don’t have the space to accommodate them. “Our soccer programme is growing every week, but there are no facilities in Fisantekraal, so we’re forced to play on the ground outside our offices,” she says. The organisation already has prominent corporate companies involved in the project. “We have well established architects and quantity surveyors who are providing their skills pro bono. Among them is Power Con-

struction, which will build the centre,” she says. “We also have the backing of one of the largest brands in South Africa to help us get all the materials for the building donated, and other trusts, foundations and investors both here and abroad who are invested in the project,” she says. “It’s a very frustrating situation because we have everything in place, we just need more space!” The organisation started fundraising for the land at the beginning of the year, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic all funds went to food aid projects. To raise the outstanding R250 000 for the land, they are now presenting a “Buy a Brick” competition. If you purchase one brick at the cost of R200, your name will be entered into a draw to win fabulous, sponsored prizes. The first prize is an Apple watch, the second prize is R5 000 cash and the third prize is R2 500 cash. The live draw will take place on 22 December. “Any corporates or foundations or organisations that would like to partner with us outside of the competition, we are PBO certified and so able to issue 18A certificates for any donation made,” Carolisse says. “So this Christmas, please consider purchasing a brick for just R200 and giving a gift to the thousands of orphaned and vulnerable children of Fisantekraal – the gift of a brighter future that will keep on giving for many generations to come,” she urges. To purchase a brick at R200, you can visit the website to pay via Snapscan or on Paypal options.

New furniture DC coming DESIRÉE RORKE @dezzierorke Trusted furniture store Tafelberg Furni­shers has just turned the sod at a new construction site in Brackenfell Industrial where its brand-new distribution centre and warehouse is being constructed. The R190 million project in partnership with VDMV Property Group will provide 225 employment opportunities and service customers in the Cape Peninsula and Boland districts. The bulk of the earthworks is currently underway with completion of construction and civil works anticipated for October 2021. “We are very excited about this project, and trust that we shall be able to serve our customers even better when it comes to deliveries, distribution and turnaround time in all areas of the Cape Peninsula and Boland,” says Tafelberg Furnisher’s CEO, Riaan Lamprecht. Phillips and Associates Architects in Paarl were contracted to design this centre.

“They designed a practical, aesthetically pleasing structure with a dome shaped roof. The architecture comprises an equilibrium of concrete, steel and traditional construc­tion methods. The facades are a combination of brickwork and IBR sheeting,” says Lamprecht. He says they had to step the site into two level platforms to maximize efficiency. According to the plans, the warehouse and offices will amount to 11 500m² with a state-of-the-art fire protection system and LED lighting in the building. “This all makes a far more efficient and effective warehousing and distribution sys­tem. “We really endeavour to have this centre be of world-class standard, once it opens its doors in February 2022, and trust that our customers, as well as our warehousing staff members will experience it as such.” With a 57-year track record in the Western Cape Tafelberg Furnishers is a leading furniture and appliance retailer, and now also has a branch in Roodepoort, Gauteng and in Umhlanga, KZN.

At the sod-turning ceremony from left are Gary Luyt and Tyrone Kleinjan from VDMV Property Group; and Roux van Zyl, Stefan Heil, Erich Heil, Riaan Lamprecht and Francois Willemse, all from Tafelberg Furnishers.

The members of the winning four ball were (from left) Alan Rudnick, Shawn Rudnick, Ross Callaghan and Nelius Swart, receiving their trophy from Daniel Louw (manager of Fair Cape Dairies’ Group Inbound) and Louis Loubser (marketing director of Fair Cape Dairies).

Fair Cape raises funds with golf day Much-needed funds for its social welfare projects were raised with the annual golf day of Fair Cape Cares Foundation. The golf day held on Friday 20 November at the Durbanville Golf Club is a highlight on the social calendar for all involved. Ongoing beneficiaries of the foundation include Durbanville Children’s Home, the Atlantic Hope Sanctuary for Abandoned Babies, and the Saartjie Baartman Centre for Women and Children. This year, to help counter the economic devastation brought on by the Covid-19 lockdown, the foundation has also partnered with Cape Talk twice to donate a total of R600 000 worth of dairy products to feeding

schemes in the Cape Town area. Joel Serman, a trustee of Fair Cape Cares Foundation, says “doing the right thing” is a fundamental driving force of Fair Cape Dairies with social welfare being one of its brand pillars. “The foundation was established to raise and disburse funds to ensure the future sustainability of its beneficiary organisations. It is extremely rewarding to play a role to add social value to these communities and the various fundraising events that we host every year are what make our welfare projects possible. We sincerely thank all participants for their contributions toward these causes,” Serman says.

Petition against guesthouses in Plattekloof RICHARD ROBERTS @richardjohn_rj


esidents in Plattekloof 1 have raised their concerns at the number of guesthouses currently operating in the area. To give effect to these concerns a petition was recently drawn up. Between Graaff Way and Uys Krige Drive alone, there are close to 10 guesthouses. The petition however is aimed at stopping the further increase of guesthouses particularly in AP Burger Avenue where there are currently three of these establishments are already in operation. Deborah April, a resident in AP Burger Avenue, was one of the first people to raise her concerns. April has been living in the area for the past 19 years. “We have a petition signed by 98% of the residents in our street, which is now heading to the ward councillor and the City’s planning department. “There are three B&Bs next door to each other. We feel this is overkill; six establishments in a one kilometre radius, there is no demand for accommodation, notwithstanding the risk factors, escalation of traffic and lack of parking,” April wrote in an email. Residents fear that the apparent planned expansion of the Thyme Wellness Spa and Guesthouse at 19 AP Burger Avenue, may have a further negative impact on their properties. TygerBurger was informed by some residents living near to the guesthouse that the owners had acquired three more properties – one in AP Burger Avenue and two in Pen Kotze Avenue. Arno Schipper, owner of number 19 AP Burger and director of Standford Cove Holding trading as Thyme, confirmed this in an email stating that the company he works for recently acquired the three properties – 17 AP Burger, 1 and 3 Pen Kotze Avenue. Last mentioned has been approved to ope-

rate as a guesthouse a substantial number of years ago, he says. “We have submitted preliminary building plans for 17 AP Burger and will in due course apply for the necessary approval to operate a guesthouse from there, and which will be dealt with on the merits,” Schipper says.

Petition to halt expansion A petition titled “Stop Thyme From Becoming Bigger” was started in response to the planned expansion and has been sent to the local ward councillor and City of Cape Town. Its aimed at opposing any application for the extension to the guesthouse, wellness centre and any other business planning to do so. According to the petition the expansion will attract more traffic to AP Burger Avenue, impact security in the area and the property value. Asked to comment on the petition Schipper responded: “We have heard rumours of this. We find it quite ridiculous that some residents seek to sign a petition about plans of which they know nothing about and have not been presented or applied for.” A total of 29 residents have to date signed the petition. “Our peace and quiet were taken away from us, we now have lots of traffic in a once quiet cul-de-sac and we want our street back,” a part of the petition reads. Parking nightmare Adrian Labuschagne, another resident and neighbour to the guesthouse, has written several letters to the City expressing his concerns. In one of the letters he elaborates on the lack of parking in the road. He claims some vehicles belonging to the Thyme patrons have caused damage to his property, his driveway and a vehicle parked in front of his house. Labuschagne also complained that he often struggles to access his property.

His sentiments are shared by Mohamed Talip, another resident. “They are turning our residential area into a business park, without the approval of the City of Cape Town, neither consideration for the residents of Plattekloof 1. We as residents of Plattekloof 1 had enough and wish this to stop. They are putting us at risk with all the traffic,” Talip says. Parking congestion at times in AP Burger is not a legitimate concern for which Thyme is responsible, says Schipper in his response. He claims some neighbouring residents are forced to park outside due to renovations to their property; that some own more than one vehicle; and that another guesthouse in the road also contributes to the congestion. “We have sufficient on-site parking at Thyme and off-street parking on Uys Krige Drive and AP Burger Avenue, apart from the fact that our staff using motorised transport park at number 1 Pen Kotze Avenue. “We also have sufficient parking at number 3 Pen Kotze Avenue for the guesthouse there,” Schipper says. Once the preliminary plans are approved for the front wall to be erected at 17 AP Burger, they intend to further increase the number of on-site parking bays at Thyme, says Schipper. The City confirmed that it had received numerous complaints from surrounding neighbours regarding the guesthouse, hence an investigation by officials from the land use enforcement branch was launched.

Compiiance notice issued TygerBurger was also informed that Thyme had to cease operations at its hair salon and spa. The City confirmed this saying that a 30-day compliance notice was served on 27 October and that a follow-up inspection was conducted on 27 November to verify compliance. “The notice is instructing the owner to cease operations within 30 days. Should the

owner not comply, the property inspector will prepare a dossier and the owner will be summonsed to appear in court. Importantly, a notice is a legal document. “An application for a five-bedroom guesthouse was approved in 2011, hence the notice was issued on the wellness centre and hair salon,” says Marian Nieuwoudt, Mayco member for spatial planning and environment. Schipper was asked to respond. “We have engaged our town planners to investigate and respond. “The City has been informed. Should the current use be in contravention of the existing usage, we understand that in terms of the notice we need to then request an administrative penalty to be determined, prior to then submitting the necessary application to realign the current use with the requested rights,” he explained. Nieuwoudt said inspectors from the City’s development management department conducted a follow-up inspection on 27 November to determine whether the owner is complying with the notice that was served on the wellness spa and hair salon a month before. “We can confirm that unfortunately operations have not been ceased. Given that the owner is not complying with the notice, which is a legal document, the property inspector is now preparing a dossier and the owner will be summonsed to appear in court. Unfortunately, given that the courts will be going into recess soon for the yearend break, it is likely that the case will only serve before the court in the new year,” Nieuwoudt says.

No new building plan, land use application” Nieuwoudt says 19 AP Burger only has approved land use rights for a guesthouse and that this land use application process did not include a public participation process. “According to our record system, no new building plan, nor land use application have been submitted,” Nieuwoudt explains.

Jong kunstenaars vereer DESIRÉE RORKE @dezzierorke


Paul Capes, Bestuurder van Residentia Boland ontvang die toekenning vanaf Residentia se Hoof Uitvoerende Beampte, Joe Duvenage

Belowende jong kunstenaars verbonde aan Emelia Cillié-Gilson se kunsskool Art for All in Brackenfell is vandeesweek beloon vir uitmuntende werk in 2020, ondanks die ongekende uitdagings. Cillié-Gilson het tydens die inperking met virtuele kunsklasse voortgegaan, wat vir ’n hele paar studente ’n moeilike uitdaging was te midde van baie negatiewe ervarings. Die ATKV se Durbanville-tak het weer vanjaar die kunswerke beoordeel en die prysuitdeling het Saterdagoggend virtueel plaasgevind. Anke de Wet (15) was die algehele wenner met 99%. “Dit is vir my ’n baie groot eer om hierdie erkenning te kry. Die kunsklas is altyd vir my ’n manier om te ontspan en af te skakel. Ek sien elke week uit daarna,” sê sy. Michael Brand (15) was tweede met 98%. “Nadat ek hierdie trofee gewen het, voel ek meer gemotiveerd om my kuns te verbeter.”

Tiani Roux (13) was die graad 4 tot 7-wenner met 90% en Hanri de Vries (9) die graad R tot 3-wenner. Tiani sê sy was aangenaam verras en Hanri was in die wolke met haar trofee, wat sy met 90% losgeslaan het. “Dit is die eerste keer dat ek ’n prys wen vir kuns. Kuns is vir my baie, baie lekker.” Beoordelaars het gemeld dat studente vanjaar kunswerke van ’n hoë standaard gelewer het. “Die positiewe resultaat van die aanlyn klasse word bewys in die kunswerke. Emelia het selfs ’n student met Skypeklasse gehelp om waterverf as ’n nuwe medium te begin gebruik. Haar top-trofeewenner het ’n dubbelgoue toekenning met ’n portretstudie behaal en dit ook deur middel van Skype-klasse. “Wat vir my uitstaande is, was die kontak en harmonie tussen kunsafrigter en kunsleerder ten spyte van die pandemie,” sê Suzette Laten, hoofbeoordelaar. Cillié-Gilson het haar trots teenoor al haar leerders uitgespreek. “Ek is baie trots op elke leerder van my. “Hulle het so ’n negatiewe jaar beleef, maar het die beste daarvan gemaak.”

Die kategorie gee erkenning aan ‘n skema nadat die volgende in aanmerking geneem is: • vordering gemaak het met die vestiging en implementering van die strategie. • inwoner - en ander dankbetuigings. • nettowinspersentasie van die skema. • algemene voorkoms van die skema. Hierdie jaar se wenner het uitsonderlike vordering gemaak in die implementering van die strategie van Residentia. Die skema se personeel het ‘n effektiewe span gevorm en die doelstellings van Residentia daagliks uitgeleef. Die skema het doelgerig verliese teengewerk en daadwerklik opgetree om diefstal in kombuis en versorgingseenheid streng aan te spreek en sodoende inwoners se regte te bevorder. In moeilike omstandighede word baie moeite gedoen om inwoners en personeel spesiaal te laat voel. Met die aantrek van die skema se nuwe verf baadjie is baie moeite gedoen om die inwoners se keuses in aanmerking te neem. In ‘n omgewing waar Covid-19 infeksie baie hoog was is die Skema wys bestuur met inagneming van die inwoners en is die enkele infeksies wat wel aangeteken is puik hanteer en verspreiding verhoed. Die Skema het baie beter gevaar in die bestuur van die pandemie as ander tehuise in die omgewing.

Van links is Anke de Wet, Michael Brand, Emelia Cillié-Gilson, Tiani Roux en Hanri de Vries.

Local coach wants to inspire more L

ocal sport coach based in Blouberg Greg Smith has a vision – to instil a firm identity and stronger sporting culture in the area he serves. Smith was inspired by former President Nelson Mandela’s address in Monaco at the Laureus Sports Awards in 2000 where he said: “Sport has the power to change the world, it has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does, it speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.” Smith went forth to use sport as a vehicle to optimise talent within the local youth in the hope they will experience growth and a renewed outlook. “An example would be when I was given the privilege to work at Blouberg International School I created a girls soccer team, training on Friday afternoons. The objective was to not only have them play soccer but to come together and learn life skills such as commitment, confidence, desire to improve and just have enjoyment in what was being achieved,” he says, adding, “We made history in playing Congregation of Christian Brothers St. John’s in Parklands who was so accommodating, the game ended in a draw but the achievements of what we set out to do and participate in was a winner in the end,” says Smith. Having already overseen the success of four u.9 soccer trophies on two continents; Smith says while the achievements are meaningful, it was not his primary goal. “The goal being to develop an environment where youngsters would grow into a respectful adults for the future. We were defined as a school or group for what we achieved. In saying that are we as a Table View/Blouberg community defined as a sporting community? What is our preferred sport (besides soccer and kite surfing)? Communities in South Africa are defined by a

sporting code, what are we? Hockey, soccer, rugby, tennis, chess? “Have we as a community going forward and schools in this area, which there are many of, lost the focus of sport and the needs of the children focused too much on education and become too corporate? Children of all ages need an out using sport and to define what they’re good at; to make memories and make a stamp in their community. Table View/Blouberg is good at?” As a result, Smith has laid out six outcomes which he believes could possibly assist in high-quality school sport; . Commitment: “Ensure that all learners attend practices on time and are ready, to make sure that they understand their responsibility of commitment to the team, assist in encouraging fellow learners to join in the sports programme, and make sure that


they are wearing the correct practice kit and match kit.” . Understanding: “Strive to make sure the learners have an understanding of the different styles of thinking needed for the particular sport that they are playing, as each sport requires the use of principles, composition and game strategy.” . Confidence: “Build our learners confidence in order for them to be willing to demonstrate what they can do as well as create an environment where they will have the confidence to try a new sport without feeling insecure about their abilities. Teach them that it is okay to ask for help when developing their new skills.” . Thinking and decision-making: “Create an environment where learners can work and train without constant direction and start thinking for themselves. Allow them to

Skolekrieket begin vroeg SAREL BURGER

Durbanville Majorette Club in full regalia during competition. The club was established in 2018.


New home for club EARL HAUPT @earlhaupt


ith almost all of 2020 being blighted by the Covid-19 pandemic, group activities have found it more challenging to stay active, let alone resume activity. However, a group of mothers in and around the northern suburbs are determined not to only keep the sport of drum majorettes alive, but to continue its growth throughout the area. Following its formation in 2018, the Durbanville Majorettes Club (DMC) had the vision to take this sport into the local communities, with athletes being sourced from Aristea Primary School, Fanie Theron Primary, Delft Primary, Gene Louw, Curro Durbanville and Curro Pinehurst. “We aimed to run a low fee, no fee club. We were given access to practise grounds at Curro Durbanville and as they had previously done the sport, they allowed us to use all their equipment and uniforms. We approached all the schools in the northern suburbs,” says chair Yvonne Viljoen. Viljoen recalls their first competitive ye-

ar last year where they placed first in the provincial championships which garnered an invitation to the national championships in Oudtshoorn, placing nineth out of the 18 teams who participated, a remarkable feat, considering the club relies heavily on its corporate sponsors and parents. The upward trend laid the foundation for a promising 2020, however, the global Covid-19 pandemic quickly halted further progress. However, this did not prevent the club from unveiling its new home at Aristea Primary School in Kraaifontein. “I started drummies in my early days in primary school already. It is a sisterhood. We are a family. There was so much I gained from the sport. It entrenched such valuable life skills that I still use today. The importance of teamwork, you are only as good as your team member, navigate around your team members, be cognisant of their needs and emotions as you are all one team. I gained independence. It taught me discipline, time management, to stay focused, to dream big,” adds Viljoen. Viljoen believes drummies is a form of empowerment for young women. “I had always dreamt that one day my daughters

would benefit from the sport and this is one of the reasons I started the club. Every one of the DMC girls is like a daughter to me,” she adds, saying that there has always been a misconception about drummies being a rich girls’ sport. “My vision was to take this sport back to its grassroots. Make it available to all and any young girl in the vicinity who had a desire to be a part of the DMC sisterhood. With a no-fee/low fee strategy, and transport to and from practices and our weekend feeding scheme we were able to make this accessible to all girls.” With drummies allowing anywhere between four and 50 people being able to participate and compete at the same time, DMC have now also broadened their scope by joining a new federation, the Federation of Dance Drill Cheerleading and Majorettes South Africa (FDDCMSA), which also allows transgender and young men to participate. “We practise up to three to four days a week. The girls have to be 110% committed. They have to juggle their academic and drummies and mainstream sporting, we hope to enrich and empower our young girls with these skills to take forth with them into their lives,” says Viljoen.

The South African nine-hour race was held at Killarney on Saturday 5 December. The start, with 51 cars entered, was always going to be a frantic affair, but amazingly there were no coming togethers into the first corner and all made it safely into the early part of the race. PHOTO: COLIN BROWN

’n Aantal skolekrieketspanne in die Tygerbergstreek sal genoodsaak wees om reeds in die komende vakansie hul vere reg te skud vir die eerste wedstryde in 2021, aangesien wedstryde reeds vir die ongewone tyd – die eerste skoolweek in die nuwe jaar – bepaal is. Dit is as gevolg van die feit dat die 2021-skooljaar later as normaalweg begin en daarmee hierdie somerkwartaal ietwat “inkort”. Somersport-aktiwiteite sluit teoreties reeds op 13 Maart af omdat die daaropvolgende Saterdag ’n vakansiedag is. Dit is terselfdertyd die gebruiklike begindatum vir die wintersportsoorte se voorseisoense wedstryde. Omdat die eerste skoolkwartaal korter as gewoonlik is ten opsigte van die somersporte, en om alle ter saaklike kompetisies “ingepas” te kry, sal van die spanne hul eerste wedstryde onmiddellik ná die heropening van die skole op 27 Januarie moet afhandel. Dit geld veral die skole wat ingeskryf het vir die nasionale 20/20-uitklopkompetisie vir o.19-spanne. Aangesien die eindronde vir die naweek van 13 Maart beplan word, móét die wedstryde in die uitdunrondes in die eerste skoolweek plaasvind ten einde genoegsame tyd beskikbaar te stel voor die hele land se uiteindelike streekwenners bepaal kan word. Deelnemende skole sal waarskynlik Saterdag 30 Januarie benut vir wedstryde in die eerste ronde, want die program vir die voldag- o.19-ligawedstryde sal eers op 6 Februarie in die WP plaasvind. Wat die WP Noordelike Stadsgebiedestreekunie (WPNS) se kompetisies betref, sal een o.19-wedstryd in die Peter Buttner Sport-kompetisie – Reddam House Durbanville t HS Parow – wel reeds op 30 Januarie gespeel word. Omdat daar net ’n beperkte aantal Saterdae beskikbaar is vir WPNS-wedstryde, sal enkele ander kragmetings ook op 30 Januarie ingeruim moet word: Brackenfell teen Curro Durbanville in die Francor Bakkery-liga vir o.19Bspanne, en só ook Fairbairn teen HS Tygerberg, asook The Settlers teen Fairmont in die All-Sports Travel-liga vir o.15-spanne.
