GEVAARSONE: ‘VERMY BOB’S- EN OU FAURE-WEG’

Model embraces skin condition

Voertuie van staat geroof BRENDEN RUITER @ruitervaniewind

I

n twee afsonderlike voorvalle is voertuie van die wetstoepassings- én verkeersafdeling gister in Eersterivier geroof. Volgens die polisiewoordvoerder van die Kleinvlei-polisie, kapt. Florina Muller, is ’n vroulike verkeersbeampte omstreeks 06:00 in Bob’s Way deur sewe onbekende mans genader. “Die mans het die konstabel gedreig, die motor afgeneem en daarmee weggejaag. Lede van die blitspatrollie het op ’n noodroep gereageer en die motor verlate in die Ou Faure-weg gevind, maar die rowers was skoonveld. Gelukkig is die beampte ongedeerd,” sê Muller. In ’n ander voorval is ’n wetstoepassingsbeampte se motor ook geroof en die voertuig is later in Vulyolwethu-weg in Crossroads gevind. Muller sê dit is in hierdie stadium onbekend of die beampte in die voorval beseer is. Sy sê dit is nie in hierdie stadium duidelik of wetstoepassingsvoertuie spesifiek geteiken word nie. “Ons het in die verlede mense ge-

waarsku om Bob’s- en Ou Faureweg te vermy as dit donker is, want daar is gereeld aanvalle. Die modus operandi is dat iemand teen ’n motor slaan of ’n klip gooi sodat die bestuurder dink ’n ongeluk het plaasgevind. Die rooftog vind plaas wanneer die bestuurder stilhou. In my persoonlike hoedanigheid was ek ook al ’n slagoffer in Bob’s-weg,” sê Muller. Wayne Dyason, woordvoerder vir die Stad Kaapstad se wetstoepassers, het die roof van die wetstoepassingsvoertuig bevestig. “Die sewe mans wat die beampte beroof het, was gewapen. Die voertuig is kort ná die voorval danksy opsporingstegnologie gevind. Net die battery van die voertuig is gesteel en die sleutel is in die ontstekingsmeganisme gelaat,” sê Dyason. Volgens Dyason het ooggetuies laat blyk dat gesteelde motors gereeld in Vulyolwethu-weg gevind word. “Ons dink nie in hierdie stadium dit is geteikende aanvalle nie, maar eers lukrake misdaad,” sê hy.

All-female crew waiting for call to fight fires AVRIL FILLIES

T

he all-female firefighting wildland crew, consisting of 15 women that completed the three-month nature conservation programme at Chrysalis Academy, are rearing to go. They are known as the Nature Conservation Corporation (NCC) all-female wildland crew and hail from Capricorn, Retreat, Philippi, Bonteheuwel, Khayelitsha and Mfuleni. “The crew is the result of a successful partnership between the NCC, Chrysalis Academy and the (provincial) department of public works, with support from Vergelegen Wines. The project officially kicked off on 25 November 2019, after a recruitment process was performed,” says Kylie Paul, superintendent of the crew, the first of its kind in Africa. “There were a large number of women interested in the programme and the 15 that graduated were interviewed, performed a fitness test and were then hand-selected by a large panel including myself. Every member of Team Juliet completed an elective fire fighting skill phase during their threemonth programme. All of them loved this part,” she says. Chrysalis Academy is hosting them while they search for accommodation and a base. “We are currently still searching for a home base, looking into many options, but we are lacking a degree of sponsorship on this matter. We are also trying to source a vehicle that could transport us to and from fires. Any support on this from anyone would be greatly appreciated,” Paul says. TygerBurger asked why they became firefighters and here are their responses: . Zimkhitha Nqetelo (22) from Philippi: “The reason I became a firefighter is to rescue animals and my crew when they need me, also to destroy trees that could be a danger to all of us and animals (widowmakers).” . Tarren January (27) from Bonteheuwel, one of the crew leaders): “When I applied to become a firefighter I knew I had to commit myself and that it would positively change my world and my perspective.

Anga Kom and Yandiswa Tywalana keeping fit. “I always loved being out in nature and exploring the wilderness, also because of my love for animals and new adventure, I decided that being a part of this team, I could contribute by lending a hand to this very important cause. It is an honour to be a part of this mission to save and protect wildlife, as well as human beings – instead of turning a blind eye to the beauty of nature that can be destroyed in the blink of an eye.” . Sisanda Bam (25) from Philippi: “I want to be a firefighter to save people’s lives, communities and animals. I also like to work with people.” . Sharne Maritz (19) from Retreat: “When I was young I witnessed my community burn down. It was horrible to see people’s lives burning away. Firefighters came but could only save some of the properties and a few people at a time. At that moment I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. “Whenever I see a fire-truck drive past me I get filled with excitement, it’s a burning feeling, wishing it was me heading to the fire. Now it is. I can’t see myself doing anything else. I was told I couldn’t be a firefighter because I was a weak woman, yet that did not stop me. It’s tough, dirty, amazing and an important job.”

Team Juliet, the all-female crew of the Nature Conservation Corporation that are awaiting their first call to fight a fire.

Buite Ekspo skud vere reg Die 19de kykNET Buite Ekspo vind vanjaar op die plaas Môreson langs die N7, net 10 km buite Malmesbury, gedurende die naweek van 14 tot 16 Februarie plaas. Verlede jaar het dié gewilde geleentheid meer as 20 000 besoekers gelok, wat dit die grootste ekspo van sy soort in die WesKaap maak. Die ekspo is hoofsaaklik gemik op buitelewe- en relevante uitstallings en beloof om die nuutste in hierdie veld aan besoekers te bied. Uitstallers bly dan ook die hele naweek op hul uitstalterreine en rig hulself so in dat die publiek eerstehands kan ervaar hoe die produkte funksioneer. Alle uitstalterreine het toegang tot krag, water en badkamergeriewe. Tesame met die uitstallings word ook lekker pretaktiwiteite vir die hele gesin

aangebied. André de Villiers van Safari 4x4 Roetes bied gratis Amarok 4x4-hindernisritte aan. Dan is daar veldmotorfiets- en vierwielfietsvertonings en -ritte, asook helikopterritte. Maak ook seker om nie die kykNET Buite Ekspo se verjaarsdagjol – aangebied deur Jimmy’s Steakhouse Sauces met kykNET-sepiesterre – mis te loop nie. Daar word gedurende die naweek verskeie interessante kompetisies en aktiwiteite aangebied – onder meer ’n kunsmark en splinternuwe Swartland-Wyntuin, wat wyn en eetgoed sal verkoop. Daar is vanjaar selfs meer gekeurde kosverskaffers om aan almal se smaak te voldoen. Daar is ook ’n Castle Light-kroeg en -biertuin en ’n baie gewilde “slush”-tuin om almal se dors te les.

. Anelisa Thwasile (23) from Khayelitsha: “The reason I chose to become a firefighter is the love for the job and I am willing to take any chances that may come my way to save the world and to prove to some women and young girls that this is not only a man’s job.” . Nyameka Makeleni (25) from Khayelitsha: “A firefighter is the closest thing to a hero. My dream was always serving my community. I am serving my community… I became a firefighter because I love it!” Paul says the male colleagues have been a huge support from day one! “They are so excited to have us and constantly offer advice and assistance in getting started up or on projects. They cannot wait to see us out on the line beside them. The integration with the male contingency has been effortless and really special. “They totally support this project and understand why it is so important. Many of the male firefighters have roots in Working on Fire, where there are male and female firefighters that are integrated into the crews,” she says. . Sesethu Stuma (male crew leader and experienced firefighter): “The NCC Juliet Crew, for me, is ready to respond to any fire. From what I saw when working with them on an alien clearing job was that they have the potential and energy. I am looking forward to seeing them on the line.” The women have been undergoing all the relevant wildland and fitness training that is required to perform this highly skilled, amazing and physical job. The crew has officially been on standby and ready to respond to call-outs since Thursday 2 January 2020. “We have not received a call out yet, and we have faced some operational hiccups, but are constantly training, studying and eagerly awaiting our first call. As the ladies often say, “When the going gets tough, Juliet gets going,” says Paul.

Die kykNET Buite Ekspo is nie ’n musiekfees nie, maar daar kan uitgesien word na optredes deur ’n paar uitstekende kunstenaars – onder andere Amore, Nadia Louw, Desmond Wells, Pieter Smith, Joe F, Cheree, Wicus van der Merwe, Megan Danner, Wynand Windpomp, Sam en Calla en Melo3, Suid-Afrika se splinternuwe “girl band”. Bring gerus die kinders saam – daar sal meer as genoeg wees vir hulle om in die pretpark te doen. Maak ook seker om nie Sondag die Lollos-vertoning mis te loop nie. Die naweekkampering raak nou vinnig vol en kan nog per e-pos bespreek word by moresonmalmesbury@gmail.com of vir toegeruste tentkampering by admin@you2camp.com.

Model embraces skin condition NIELEN DE KLERK @nielendk

L

ast year a woman walked up to Chad Esau and said she would pray for his skin to turn back to normal. Esau (22) smiled politely and then prayed for the opposite. “It was that moment that I realised I’m not that young boy who used to pray for my (skin condition) to go away. Esau, from Bellville-South, has come a long way from being bullied as a young boy. These days he’s a part-time model and is vying for the title of Mr South Africa 2020 and hopes to inspire everyone who is a little different. Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes the loss of skin colour in blotches. Michael Jackson famously tried to hide any signs of the illness, while Winnie Harlow became a top model with her unique beauty. Esau’s Vitiligo started when he was between five and six years old. “I didn’t know what it was called at that time because the internet wasn’t as informative as it is right now. I always thought it’s “wit lewer” (white liver), that’s what people called it growing up.” When he became a teenager he received his first phone and discovered the condition is called Vitiligo. He always felt self-aware about the condition, but with time he started accepting it. “I can’t picture myself without my Vitiligo,” he says. “I learned that it never mattered what people say about me growing up, it’s always

been what I tell myself.” Esau works as a barista at GrandWest and this is how his modelling career took off. He was working the night shift when a scout asked whether he wanted to start modelling. Esau put motivational sticky notes on his wall with things he wanted to achieve and coincidentally he was focusing on a sticky note about becoming a model that specific morning. His decision to enter Mr South Africa is one that suddenly popped into his head. “I told myself ‘no that’s ridiculous, why would I want to do modelling as big as Mr South Africa 2020’?” But later he changed his mind. “Why can’t I do this? I’ve always been a role model for family and friends growing up.” Modelling has given him a platform to inspire more people and speak to those who are a bit different or who are bullied. “I’m with an anti-bullying campaign called Brave Heart, which focuses on stopping bullying in schools and the work environment. “At the end of the day we are all imperfect, but also perfect at the same time. Because if we weren’t needed in this world we wouldn’t be here. We are all imperfectly perfect.” VTo vote for Chad in the Mr South Africa contest, SMS the word MRSA74 to 40439 (at R2 an SMS) or via Zapper. More information is available on the Mr South Africa 2020 Facebook and Instagram page as well as on Chad’s Instagram page (chad_carlton_esau). Supporters are asked to vote as many times as possible.

Lyk met veelvuldige wonde gevind BRENDEN RUITER @ruitervaniewind Die Mfuleni-polisie soek inligting rakende ’n moord wat waarskynlik verlede Vrydag plaasgevind het. Volgens sers. Nozuko Matoybeni, polisiewoordvoerder, is die liggaam van ’n onbekende man verlede Vrydag om middernag tussen die bosse naby Greenpark gevind. “Die oorledene het verskeie skietwonde in sy maag en bors gehad en was geklee in ’n bruin baadjie en blou denimbroek,”

sê Matoybeni. By nadere ondersoek is gevind dat die man glo vroeër die dag deur twee mans in Delft aangerand is, waarna hy in ’n onbekende wit voertuig gelaai is, wat met hom weggejaag het. Matoybeni sê ’n ooggetuie wat glo gesien het hoe die man vermoor is, kon nie die maak van die verdagtes se voertuig onthou nie. “Ons wil ’n beroep doen op die publiek om ons met hierdie ondersoek te help,” sê Motaybeni. TygerBurger het ’n navraag aan die polisie in Delft gerig, maar teen druktyd geen kommentaar ontvang nie.

Boek bring hulde aan Abe se mentors AVRIL FILLIES

T

erwyl hy in sy hospitaalbed gelê het nadat hy tydens ’n valskermsprong in Bloemfontein beseer is, het Abraham (Abe) Bengell, voormalige brigade-sersant-majoor (BSM) van 44 Valskerm-brigade in Bloemfontein, besluit om sy loopbaan in die SuidAfrikaanse Weermag te boek te stel. Hy was ook verbonde aan 1 SAKK-Opleidingseenheid in Faure as instrukteur van verskeie troepe. “Die titel van die boek Abe ons eerste is ontleen aan die koerantopskrif in Die Burger-Ekstra in April 1987, toe hy as die eerste bruin (regiment-sersant-majoor (RSM) in die rooi gebied aangestel is by 55 SAI Bataljon in Namibië. Die berig is deur jou, en ek het gedink dit is ’n gepaste titel, want ek was die eerste in baie opsigte. Boonop het jy my weermagloopbaan saam met my gestap en dis dan ook my manier om dankie te sê vir jou bydrae,” het Bengell Onder die genooide gaste wat die bekendstelling bygewoon het, was sy voormalige bevelvoerder, kol. Leon Martins, Leër-sersant-majoor Edward Sykes (AO1), wat sy kompanie-sersant-majoor was as die vegtende magte/infanterie in die destydse Suidwes-Afrika, en brig, genl. Graham Jacobs, bevelvoerder van SAKK Skool, en vriende. Vriende en familie het vanaf Bloemfontein na die Kaap gekom om die geleentheid by te woon. In die boek gee hy ’n breedvoerige beskrywing van al sy prestasies,

persoonlike ervarings en toekennings wat hy in sy loopbaan van 27 jaar en ses maande beleef het. “Benewens my oorlede ma, Poppie, my vrou, Karen, my kinders en susters en broers, was daar vyf persone wat sentraal staan in my lewe en loopbaan as ’n soldaat. Hulle is JP Taylor, my korp. en Dennis Johannes, sy instrukteur op die instrukteurskursus, Jan (Essy) Estruis, sokkerafrigter en hoof van die militêre polisie, en wyle Henry Maasdorp. “Taylor het my geleer dat jy moet luister na ander voordat jy ingeligte besluite maak en hy het my leierskapsvaardighede ontwikkel. Sykes het my ondersteun om as 55 SAI Bn se RSM in Namibië al was dit sonder betaling te werk. Jacobs was ’n voorbeeld as offisier, as heer en Maasdorp het hy altyd daaraan herinner dat in alles wat ek doen, nooit die Here te vergeet nie,” sê Bengell. As hy nou terugkyk op sy lewe en loopbaan besef hy dat die Here hom altyd gedra het, selfs toe hy as ouderling Sy werk as bedlêende in die gemeenskap van Heidedal in Bloemfontein verrig het. “Ds. Collin Goeiman, die predikant van die Verenigde Gereformeerde kerk in Heidedal, het my nie in sak en as laat sit nadat ek die besering opgedoen het nie. Hy het van sy senior ouderlinge gevra om my op ’n matras huisbesoeke in die gemeenskap te gaan doen. Dis dan ook tydens die huisbesoeke dat ek nog nader aan God beweeg het en Hom eerste in my en gesinslewe ge-

stel het. “Tydens my stasionering in Namibië het ek goeie vriendskapsbande opgebou met lede van Untag, die internasionale vredesmag wat destyds daar ontplooi is, en ook goed saamgewerk met ander bevelvoerders by die verskillende eenhede in Namibië. Hieroor word breedvoerig in die boek uitgewy en ook watter invloed elkeen van hulle op my loopbaan gehad het,” sê hy. Bengell is gebore in Springfontein en hy begin die boek deur te vertel van sy rol as leier in sy ouerhuis nadat sy pa gesterf het en hy

as pa ingestaan het. “Ek het my ma belowe dat ek nie sal drink nie en dat ek alles in my vermoë sal doen om haar en my ander familielede te onderhou. Voor haar afsterwe het sy my bedank vir die rol wat ek in haar en die familie se lewe gespeel het,” vertel hy. Die boek sal wonderlike herinneringe oproep van almal wat saam of onder hom soldate was. “Die besering van lt. Sandy van der Sandt tydens ’n landmynontploffing in Namibië het my laat besef waarvoor ek my as soldaat ingelaat het. Elke ervaring, goed of sleg, tydens die Grensoorlog vanaf

Emergency strap to help in times of need

Women's Health Fit Night Out at GrandWest will take place on 15 February.

RICHARD ROBERTS A Richwood resident and graphic designer, Olivia Viglatzis, has launched a new customised emergency strap to help during an emergency. The strap folds around seat belts, a baby seat and backpack strap and has details of the driver, baby or school going child – these include the name and surname of the individual, an emergency contact and medical aid details. “All of this came to mind one evening when I was driving to the shop and thought to myself, ‘what would happen if I was to be in an accident? How would the emergency services know who to contact? “And so it all started,” Viglatzis explains. They also decided to make

the strap available for school backpacks. “School children get injured and no one knows who to contact,” Viglatzis adds. According to her the idea started small and they hope they can someday grow it into a business. “We started in November and we have only done things via Facebook so far, so we are really still small.” The business has gained some momentum through word of mouth. Viglatzis hopes to approach medical aid companies to get involved. “We will be marketing it ourselves for now as each of the emergency straps are individually made for that particular person’s needs.” The straps can be ordered and mailed to anywhere in the country.

SLICE OF LIFE

Nie huil of huil, nou kan jy self kies Jare gelede het mense by geleentheid gekla oor die kos wat die Suid-Afrikaanse Lugdiens op sy vlugte voorsit. Wyle Hendrik Schoeman, toe minister van vervoer, se antwoord hierop in die Parlement was: “Man, wil jy vlieg of wil jy vreet?” Ek wil dit effens aanpas na “Man, wil jy vlieg of wil jy stilte hê?” Want in ’n vliegtuig is jy oorgelewer aan wat die mense om jou doen. Daar is straks ’n huilende baba. En die baba het seker ook geen keuse nie, want iets pla. Nou het ons ’n dilemma, want soms duur die vlug twaalf uur lank of meer. Ek het simpatie met hulle en met die ouers. Babas is in die algemeen heel bekoorlik, al is dit iemand anders s’n. En natuurlik huil hulle van tyd tot tyd. Dis hoe hulle kommunikeer. In ’n vliegtuig word die lugdruk kunsmatig beheer om dit dieselfde as op die grond te hou, anders sou passasiers nie kon asemhaal nie. En dis heel dikwels wat ’n kindjie se ore laat pyn. Bo in die lug is mense woelig, party drink te veel, party skreeu in die ry af na iemand anders of die lugverkoeling drup die heeltyd in jou nek. Op een so ’n internasionale vlug het ’n pa met ’n baba in sy arms gesit – ma was nie by nie – en die baba het met die opstyg begin huil. En gehuil en gehuil en gehuil. Arme pa. Ná so vyf uur het die ander passasiers begin kla. Toe kom ’n vlugdoedie en praat met die pa. En toe ons weer hoor, is sy en die pa behoorlik in ’n yelling contest gewikkel, alles in Chinees, sien. Hy is blykbaar toe as ’n vlugrisiko beskou, want ’n mens stry nie met ’n lugwaardin nie. Toe die vliegtuig in Hong Kong land, was die sekuriteitsmanne by die deur om die pa in te wag. Hulle wou kennelik nie vir die baba ’n nuwe nappy aansit nie, maar het die pa berispe en laat gaan. Ek het hom jammer gekry. Daarna het ek nog lank gewonder oor babas op vliegtuie. Hulle kan nie verbied word nie, maar ander passasiers kan ook nie verontrief word nie. Nou het Japan Airlines besluit hy waarsku mense wanneer hulle plek bespreek as daar babas op die vlug gaan wees, en waar hulle gaan sit. Dis al ’n goeie begin om die probleem op te los. Maar wat van diegene wat ná jou bespreek? Ek doen graag ’n oplossing aan die hand: reserveer die agterste vyf rye sitplekke vir ouers met babas. Dan weet almal mos hulle moet elders sit as hulle stilte soek terwyl hulle daar tussen die wolke aan hul Moët et Chandon teug. Maroela Media het mense vir kommentaar op Japan Airlines se besluit gevra. “Sit oorpluisies in jou ore of luister musiek. Tien teen een snork jy soos ’n vark wanneer jy slaap,” lui een. En “Net so erg (as huilende babas) is pongende voete wat uit die skoene gehaal is op ’n 13 uur lange vlug...” Nog een: “Kan hulle ook aandui waar oorgewig mense sit – sal daai sitplekke ook wil vermy.” Ander sê weer: “Klomp suurgatte. Dis die probleem met die samelewing: alles gaan oor EK. EK het vir my kaartjie betaal. EK verdien stilte. EK, EK, EK.” Iemand anders sê “Ons geniet dit as kinders op die vliegtuig is en dit pla ons nie. Die meeste ouers is ‘vlieg-wise’.” Vanmelewe kon ’n mens ook kies waar jy wil sit: rook of nie-rook. En as almal nou weet die agterste deel van die vliegtuig is gereserveer vir ouers met babas, sal hulle tog weet hulle moet eerder elders sit. Dis huil of nie-huil. Ek sê: “Briljant Japan Airlines, briljant!” Kom ons hoop ander lugdienste volg die voorbeeld. Maar wag, my kind huil. Waar is daai dummy nou weer? – Werner van Tonder

“Sit pluisies in jou ore of luister musiek. Tien teen een snork jy soos ’n vark...”

Shaking things up: Once again, one of Africa’s biggest annual cultural events, the Cape Town Street Parade did not disappoint. Altogether 42 troupes, compromising approximately 10 000 performers, participated in this year’s event on Saturday 4 January. The groups marched from Hanover Street in District Six, along Darling Street past City Hall and the Grand Parade before taking a route that came to an end in the Bo-Kaap.

What are they Dankie dat julle my pa gehelp het after now . . . Barely five days into 2020, and Eskom decides to start their excuses of loadshedding. What are they after now? More money to pocket, undeserved bonuses or whatever they can think of? When are the corrupt “cronies” going to “pay back the money they wasted”? When is JZ going to own up for his part in the failure of those “so-called plants, Medupi or whatever it is called”? When are the municipalities which owe money to Eskom, going to start paying their debts? When are the illegal connections going to be stopped? Eskom is well aware of the illegal connections, but doesn’t do a thing to stop it. When is the president going to put a stop to all this and government going to stop playing the “blame game” while the poor man in the street has to put up with all this nonsense? Are we going to be compensated for our food going off in the refrigerator, for our electrical appliances being messed up due to loadshedding? Or is the “blame game” now going to shift to the new person in charge? When the new person has inherited all the “incompetent staff” who created the whole mess in the first place.

My pa van Worcester, wat in Desember by ons gekuier het, het twee dae na Kersdag besluit om die middag litte los te maak en daarop aangedring om winkels toe te stap in stede van dat ek hom neem. Hy het in Okavangoweg, naby Makro, gestruikel en hard geval. Aan die mense wat gestop het om hom te help, en veral die man wat hom ’n geleentheid huis toe gegee het, wil ek net baie dankie sê. Hy het ’n wit bakkie gery met ’n Somerset-Wes-registrasienommer. Buiten sy nerf-af knieë, en seer armspiere is die ouman darem okei. Julle hulp word opreg waardeer. CECILIA Langeberg Ridge

Parkering is ’n pyn Durbanville brei ontsettend vinnig uit en met die opening van al hoe meer winkelsentrums lok dit nóg meer motors en mense van buite. Aan die oostekant van Durbanville kry ons vier winkelsentrums – Graanendal, Pinehurst, Cobble Walk en Glengarry, waar baie van Durbanville se inwoners hul inkopies doen. Dit verlig definitief baie van die instroming van motors en besoekers aan die middedorp. Aan die westekant van die dorp, met die ontsettende

groot uitbreiding van Clara Anna Fontein en D’Urbanvale reeds daar, dink ek sal ’n winkelsentrum op die Vissershokpad groot verligting in die toekoms bring. Met 500 woonerwe, omtrent 100 woonstelle, ’n aftreeoord en privaatskool is my vraag, waar gaan al die mense hul motors in die dorp parkeer? T.H. CARSTENS Durbanville

Titanium, ons is baie dankbaar Ek wil graag hiermee my waardering uitspreek teenoor Titanium se paramedici vir hul uitstekende diens. My man het op 23 Desember geval en sy been net onder die heup op drie plekke gebreek. Ek het nie geweet watter kant toe nie en het dadelik vir Titanium geskakel. Die vrou wat die foon geantwoord het, het my kalm gehou en al die besonderhede geneem. Dit was ’n kwessie van minute toe stop hul ambulans by ons en die manne was uitstekend om hom te help en na die hospitaal te vervoer. Hulle het daar gewag totdat hy mediese hulp by die trauma-afdeling kon kry. Dit is net fantasties om te weet dat Titanium nie net na ons veiligheid omsien nie, maar ook mediese bystand kan verskaf in ’n tyd van nood. Baie dankie Titanium, ons waardeer julle opreg.

If you pay attention while you drive you will notice them on the side of the road. They are right here in our suburbs and along our motorways. They are a warning to all of us, but we probably disregard them pretty much the same way we do stop signs. Crosses, too many crosses on the side of the road. Behind each cross is a story of great heartache and lives lost too soon. I have noticed it before but even more so now after my family has planted its own cross. My son was a passenger when he died, taking with him hopes and dreams that will not be fulfilled. It took a year before we felt ready to plant our cross. Last week we went out to the crash site to see if the cross was still in place and to take fresh flowers. As we stood at the very place where my son took his last breath two cars came speeding past us, the lady was talking on her cellphone and not far behind her a guy in a bakkie, driving so fast that I heard him well before I saw the vehicle. We complain about the crime and corruption in our country, but we cannot obey the basic laws of our roads. Those crosses are sending us a message and pleading with us as drivers to slow down, stop at the red lights, ignore our cellphones, stay in our lanes and not get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. To the families who have a cross on the side of the road, I wish you peace as you enter another year without your loved one. GRIEVING MOM Email

Bible for the Deaf opens new world NIELEN DE KLERK @nielendk

F

or many the words in the Bible are selfexplanatory. Verses like “whoever has ears, let them hear” or “if you declare with your mouth...you will be saved” are so commonplace, many don’t think twice when reading it. For a deaf person this is a completely different experience, says Dr Rocco Hough, who helped put together the English Bible for the Deaf (EBD), which the Bible Society of South Africa released at the end of last year. Hough, who was a reverend at the De la Bat Dutch Reformed Church for the deaf in Bellville for over 30 years, was directly in-

The English Bible for the Deaf.

volved with both translations, along with Elmien Roux, a retired teacher who used to work at the De la Bat School for the Deaf in Worcester. Helping them were scores of academics and deaf people, making this a translation developed with the deaf, for the deaf. The EBD follows the runaway success of The Afrikaans Bible for the Deaf of 2008 (now also known as the Bible for All), the first Afrikaans Bible for the deaf. The EBD is aimed at people who were born deaf and could not learn a language in an auditory way.

Necessity Hough says he was challenged to do the English translation of the Bible for the Deaf while in Kenya about 11 years ago. A pastor there said they were struggling to understand the English Bible for the Deaf they were using at the time. When he looked at the Bible himself, he saw about 50 words in the first chapter of the Bible that the average deaf person wouldn’t understand. There was a great need for a text-based Bible for the deaf in English, Hough realised. And as he knew only too well from translating the Afrikaans Bible for the Deaf, most of the existing Bible is too difficult for a deaf person to understand. “The mother tongue of the deaf is Sign Language, a very difficult language for hearing people to learn, and likewise, difficult for deaf people to understand written language as we find it in our Bibles.” A hearing impairment normally leads to language impairment. “Deaf children cannot learn a language in a normal way, and in the past deaf children were sent to a school for the deaf at the age of 3 where they had to learn a language in a specialised way.” Even though they have normal intelligence, the average reading ability of an adult de-

Dr Rocco Hough and his wife, Jean. Hough says Jean has been a big help in the process of putting together a more readable Bible for the deaf.. af person is that of an eight-year-old-hearing child. This creates a large barrier when trying to read something like the Bible. Added to this is the fact that the Bible is filled with idioms, which is something that is acquired by speaking a language over time and not something deaf people learn automatically.

Translation The translation of EBD officially started in 2011 and the text was completed after about five years. “After (this) it was tested, the development of all the footnotes and illustrations, the page layout, and then it was printed in China, who has the largest and most modern Bible printing press.” Two source experts Prof Bart Oberholzer

and Prof Hermie van Zyl helped with this translation. After Oberholzer’s death, Dr Tiana Bosman took over. Hough says this Bible is ideal for groups of people wanting to read an easy translation, like Christians in countries like Pakistan and India. “There is such a big need for a Bible like this and I’m grateful we could finish it,” Hough says. Hannerie Swart, development manager at the National Institute for the Deaf (NID), says it’s special that the deaf can receive the word of God in an easily understandable way. “It supports deaf accessibility and inclusivity.” VThe Bible is available at Cum Books or at the Bible Society of South Africa.

‘Cigarette butts’ serve as warning SAMANTHA LEE-JACOBS @samantha_lee121 A unique and quirky art installation aimed at creating awareness around an unknown plastic pollutant and its risk has hit beaches and popular attractions around the country. The Kiickbutt initiative was initiated more than a year ago but gained momentum over the last month. The initiative is aimed at simulating the magnitude of damage created by irresponsible disposal of the cigarette butts and what animals encounter as they come across the butts in nature. The 19 life-sized butts are created from decommissioned telephone poles, spray-painted to resemble cigarette butts. Clive Amsel, WRAPP CEO, installation artist and environmentalist, says many people do not realise the cigarette butts are made of plastic and are one of National Geographic’s top listed plastic pollutants in the world. While they may look like white cotton, the basis of most cigarette filters is a plastic named cellulose acetate, which can take up to 10 years to fully decompose. The environmental risk is increased in the fact that filters are designed to absorb the contaminants in cigarettes and prevent them from going into the lungs. These contaminants include cadmium, arsenic and lead which are then released into waterways or ingested by animals. “We chose areas that are environmentally sensitive, but also areas where people tend to smoke and leave their butts,” says Amsel. “As you walk along the beach or take a hike anywhere in the country, you will find cigarette butts scattered all over the place.” Amsel recently also collected a 2L bottle full of butts while hiking up the Platteklip Gorge trail.

The identified areas included Lion’s Head, Llandudno, Table View, Scarborough, Fish Hoek, Platteklip Gorge, Kommetjie and Umhlanga beaches, Tokai, Zeekoevlei and the Cederberg mountains. The installation is funded by WRAPP waste who were motivated to get involved through their passion for responsible waste removal. Amsel says the installation will be around until June and move to other locations, weather dependent. “It seems like a small thing but it has a butterfly effect, a lot of small things add up to a big problem,” says Amsel. Another area of focus is the CBD, as Amsel says many drivers discard of their butts on sidewalks and out car windows. “This enters the stormwater systems, goes out to sea and affects our marine life and shellfish. We end up eating that,” he says. The butts have already caused a stir and Amsel hopes it will change people’s minds about irresponsible disposal of their cigarette butts. It is estimated that 18 million cigarettes are smoked around the world daily. “We are not educating people against smoking, but rather to discard butts in a dust bin or controlled environment.” Aside from the toxicity, the butts also pose a major fire risk.

Young cyclist dreams big BRENDEN RUITER @ruitervaniewind A young cyclist from Blackheath have dreams of becoming a South African champion, but he needs funds to get to the national championships. Since taking up cycling, Mihran Khatieb (12) has won more than 12 medals, and he has even bigger dreams. “I love cycling and want to cycle in Europe one day and wear the rainbow stripes of a world champion. “I hope I can be a good role model for my talented younger brother and other cyclists like me who work hard to achieve their dreams. “I also want to encourage other kids to take up the sport of cycling,” says the soft-spoken Mihran, who is starting Grade 8 this year. According to him his dad, Ahmed, is his biggest hero. “He represented South Africa at the World Championships in

Malaysia in 1997. Recently, he received his national colours as the SA Team mechanic in Italy and the SA Para Cycling team in the Netherlands last year. “He’s been my coach since I started competing and now I also enjoy getting additional guidance from coaches Zarina Van Schalkwyk and Glen Bonthuys. It’s more fun to train with other kids my age and older,” says Mihran. When he is not cycling he likes to do what most 12-yearolds does. “My second love is cars and playing Xbox. I like spending time with my family, especially my younger brother Faraz who has also started cycling for Kinetic Cycling Club.” His mother, Reygana, says cycling is a very expensive sport if you want to be competitive. “It is a constant battle to raise funds, even entry fees are a lot money,” says Reygana. She however believes that her son can achieve all his dreams.

“This past weekend was Mihran’s first u.15 road and time trial races and he achieved fifth place in both. “He is the youngest rider in that age group as well. Yet very determined to do well during this year while riding with the big boys. “He intends to up his training and will be using the weekend’s race as an eye opener as to what preparation needs to be done to achieve better results,” she says.

Mihran Khatieb hopes to become a South African champion.

urbanville se weghol-sege met 10 paaltjies oor Langa op Saterdag 11 Januarie het tot gevolg dat die Durbies steeds die bopunt van die punteleer in die WP se Premierliga beman. In antwoord op Langa se 146/9 het Durbanville se aanvangskolwers Hayes van den Berg (74) en Jean Marais (73) met ’n onoorwonne vennootskap 152 lopies bymekaar geskraap. Maar met Bellville (186) het sake minder voorspoedig verloop teen Kaapstad (236/6), ondanks ’n knap derdepaaltjie-vennootskap van 98 lopies tussen Schaughn van Greunen (58) en Uwe Birkenstock (45). Brackenfell en die Universiteit van Wes-Kaapland het loslootjies gehad. In die eerste liga is Kraaifontein deesdae weer goed op dreef. Die Kraaie se telling van 228/6 was bo die vuurmaakplek van Edgemead (203) ná goeie bydraes deur Craig Ephraim (52* en 3/27) en Garth Madden (50). Vir Edgemead het Justin Higgs (47) die beste vertoon. Milnerton (233/7) was gans te sterk vir Noordelikes-Goodwood (114). Die sege was grootliks te danke aan die bydraes van Damian Crowley (66), Maximillan Walter (46), Matthew Snyman (45) en Sean Ro-

ach (3/26). Tygerberg-klub (86) het lelik gefaal teen United (188) terwyl Kuilsrivier (142/9) met 3 paaltjies deur Primrose (143/7) getroef is. Die Kuile is ook Sondag in ’n tweede wedstryd met 88 lopies deur United (230) geklop. . In die laaste reeks Premierliga-wedstryde in Desember het Brackenfell – die voorloper op die punteleer in daardie stadium – skande gemaak toe hy ’n pak slae van 172 lopies teen Rondebosch op die lyf geloop het. In Durbanville (218/8) se kragmeting teen Strandfontein (143) het ’n vyfdepaaltjie-vennootskap van 150 lopies tussen Dale Campbell (83) en Byron Boshoff (73) tot die Durbies se redding gekom nadat hulle op 18/4 gesteier het. Bellville (76/2) het danksy ’n goeie spanpoging maklik met Langa (75) afgereken. In die eerste liga het Ryan Milne (6/36) en Justin du Toit (52) gehelp dat Milnerton met 97 lopies teen Tygerberg-klub seëvier, terwyl Danie Bothma (5/20) en Craig Thyssen (44*) aan die voorpunt was van Kraaifontein (133/5) se vyfpaaltjieoorwinning oor Rylands. Edgemead (238) het Gugulethu met 114 lopies verslaan ná knap bydraes deur Duane Abel (6/25), Aaron Wilke (53) en Bradley Johnson (53).
