) New concrete homes ‘beautiful’
Valley bit happier CARMEN JACOBS
From a trying life, facing harsh elements in a shack to living in a newly built concrete home. This is the breakthrough for residents of the Happy Valley informal settlement whose life-long ideal of having their own home will now finally be realised. Bert van Dalen, local ward councillor, says the long awaited and hoped for Happy Valley Housing project kicked off in June and will provisionally be completed within two years. The City of Cape Town housing project will complete 1 460 houses (200 of these PHP). The People’s Housing Project will be based upon qualifying for a subsidy. “My hope is that Happy Valley will be a real happy valley and no longer a dumping site for people who can’t be accommodated elsewhere,” said Van Dalen.
Appointed contractor for the project is Asla Construction and will feature duplex and freestanding homes. He says homes will also be fitted with solar energy panels, including a separate solar-energy powered lighting system. The two-bedroom 40-square metre homes will be based on the land where the former Happy Valley informal settlement was based. Inhabitants of the settlement were re-located to the area in front of the informal settlement, earlier this year in May, while construction continues. “We first had to obtain permission from them to be able to move them from their former plots, because we can’t move people without their permission,” Van Dalen explains. The Happy Valley informal settlement originated when people who were dislocated elsewhere were moved to this open area, outside Blue Downs. Van Dalen says people are from all over.
The informal settlement was prone to flooding and many other challenges, caused by the winter rains and cold. “If you look at the circumstances the people have thus far lived in, this project will certainly restore their human dignity.” Van Dalen says the people are generally excited and anxious for their new homes to be completed. “Ninety-nine percent of the people are very happy and want to take ownership of their new homes as soon as possible. People are looking forward to it.” Carmen Cupido, dweller of an informal structure, said about the prospect of living in her own home: “For the past seven years I’ve been living here, it is a bit wet, but we have to be patient. I am very happy about the houses.” Another informal resident, Magda van der Vent said: “I feel satisfied that we are going out of the cold, I have no complaints, the homes look beautiful.”

Abusive man stopped twice A rowdy, abusive suspect from Tuscany Glen, Blue Downs was arrested by police officers at a routine roadblock this past weekend. City of Cape Town traffic officers held a roadblock on Hindle Road, Blue Downs when the suspect was stopped by officers at around 16:45 on Sunday 29 July. The man, once stopped by the officers became abusive, slurring racist remarks towards traffic officers. Members of the police arrested the suspect on the scene, after which he was taken to the Kleinvlei Police Station and issued with a R400 fine. This was not the end of the suspect’s riot-
ous behaviour and at 18:00 the same night he returned once again to the roadblock. According to information supplied by the City of Cape Town Traffic Services, the man once again hurled racist and derogatory remarks at the officers on duty. “He was taken to the Kleinvlei Police Station and charged with intimidation; interfering and obstructing traffic officers in the execution of their duties; assault; and crimen injuria,” read the press statement issued by Maxine Jordaan of traffic services. A total of 35 suspects were arrested by traffic officers for over 150 traffic-related offences, during their weekend operations.

Public play good cop, bad cop The partnership between the Western Cape Department of Community Safety and the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) launched a new campaign “Reward a cop, Report a cop.” This campaign promotes effective policing and aims to stamp out police misconduct and corruption. The programme encourages the public to report on police service, giving recognition to many good police officers who put their lives on the line to protect and also to report on police misconduct. The campaign urges people to, when re-
porting the misconduct of a policeman, remember to give all relevant information and take note of names, ranks and car registration numbers. “We need you to help us identify them, so that police misconduct can be investigated with a view to improve police efficiency and effectiveness,” said Western Cape minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato. SMS the word “reward” or “report” to 35395, or contact 021 483 4332. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet to @RewardaCop.

Só sê Frank Geneke van Greenfields, Blackheath, oor die vrywillige werk wat hy na ure doen met die afkap van die Port Jackson-bome op die oop veld naby sy huis en in sy woongebied. Vanjaar is dit die derde jaar dat Frank se pogings die digte groei van die bosse verhoed. Hy sê hy saag dit so twee keer ’n jaar af. “Die man wat dit altyd gedoen het, Tom Nel, is oorlede en toe het ek besluit om die werk oor te neem, veral om die plek veilig te maak vir skoolkinders wat hierlangs skool toe loop,” sê Frank. Hy sê die erf is nie munisipale grond nie
en word deur ’n private eienaar besit. “Ons weet nie wie die eienaar is nie.” Die veiligheid van sy gemeenskap is egter vir Frank belangrik en hy sê die erf word gebruik deur almal, van wie die meerderheid kinders van nabygeleë skole is. “As die bosse dig is, kan ons nie sien of daar kwaaddoeners wegkruip nie. Dit is donker in die oggende en van die mense stap partykeer alleen.” Hy sê sy pogings word veral deur die verpleegsters van die woongebied waardeer. “Hulle is baie bly ek doen dit. Hulle staan al van sesuur soggens hier vir die bus en wag. Hulle bedank my altyd.” Dit is hierdie dankbaarheid uit die gemeenskap wat Frank rede gee om aan te hou. “Ek doen dit vir die gemeenskap. Ek word nie betaal daarvoor nie, ek doen dit in my vrye tyd,” sê Frank wat ’n voltydse werk het.

’n Kapingsdrama het hom dié naweek in Brantwood, Kuilsrivier afgespeel toe gewapende mans in ’n skietery met ’n polisieman betrokke was.

Die drama het begin toe ’n polisieman, wat ’n motor sou gaan koop het, van die bank deur mans agtervolg is. Die polisieman, wat van diens was, het ’n groot bedrag kontant by die bank gaan onttrek en die twee vermeende kapers het hom van die bank agtervolg tot by die verkoper van die motor se huis in Brantwood, Kuilsrivier. Die eienaar van die huis, waar die kaping plaasgevind het, het aan TygerBurger vertel hy het Saterdagoggend niksvermoedend uit sy huis gekom om sy motor uit die motorhuis te trek. Hy was op pad om te ry. “Die ou wat by my in ’n afsonderlike woonstel woon, het met ’n man (die polisieman) staan en gesels. Hy was besig om hom sy motor te wys wat hy wou verkoop.” Toe die eienaar na sy motorhuis se deur stap, het hy twee swart mans opgemerk wat na die geselsende mans aangestap gekom het. Hy het na die motorhuis gestap, maar een van die swart mans het hom genader. “Die ou het na my toe gekom, die gun op my gerig en gesê: ‘My broer draai om, gaan in en maak die garage-deur toe.” Die man, wat anoniem wil bly, het uit skok stil bly staan. “Hy kom toe na my aangehardloop en hou die gun teen my kop en sê, ‘ek sê mos vir jou draai om, gaan in en maak toe die deur’.” Die eienaar het omgedraai en by die motorhuis ingehardloop. “Ek het gedink ek gaan vandag dood. Ek het agter my motor platgeval toe ek hoor hy kom nader. Ek het gedink hy kom my nou skiet, maar hy het die motorhuisdeur kom toeklap. Dit slag was hard, ek dink hy het dit met die gun toegekap.” Die man sê al wat deur sy kop gemaal het,

Science boffs take up cereal challenge TAMSYN COERECIUS
Ideas were flowing and minds were working as students combined their skills and participated in the Hip2b2 iThink Challenge on Thursday 26 July at DF Malan High School. Approximately 490 students gathered and set out to use their skills and win the challenges of the day, which included the Pronutro Cereal Challenge, where they had to create a new flavoured-cereal, as well as the Science challenge.

A group of first-time participants from Bellville Something they’ve never tasted.” The love for science and maths was evident as Technical High expressed their excitement: “We stand a good chance of winning. If all goes well managing director Cathryn Treasure spoke about there will be good opportunities for us,” said the importance of events of this nature. “This is another one of our touchpoints and we Grade 11 student Shaquille Poyer. Another student, Lungisa Klaas commented on this saying: want to inspire these students to pursue maths and science. Today is so important because it gives them the chance to apply science in a more practical way, away from the classroom,” she said. There were different flavours and colours thrown in, all adding a touch of the groups’ identities. Bellville High School student, Sharni Gold said: “We made ours purple and added chocolate chips, but with banana flavour, because our parents would want to take a healthy approach.” The Hip2b2 team all scattered the floor in science coats with the slogan “Think what you can be”.

Plans include to provide training to American community workers and educators in this programme. Teen Challenge, a drug rehabilitation centre and prevention programme has developed this unique learning programme for teachers, in order for them to identify children caught up in drug use. The programme has been presented at schools and prisons throughout South Africa. It will, however, not be all work and no play for the team consisting of 36 people. The Mission Team will visit tourist attractions and heritage sites including the White House in Washington DC, the Martin Luther King project in Philadelphia, and Ground Zero in New York. Nomdoe thanked the leadership of Enon Tabernackle for funding the mission trip. Future plans include even bigger mission trips. “In 2013 we hope to take 100 people on this trip,” said Nomdoe. Mission Team members seemed overjoyed. Desnay Waldeck said: “This will be my first time travelling, so I’m very excited.”
The immense excitement was tangible amongst members of the Mission Team consisting of members from the Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church and Teen Challenge at a meeting last week. The Mission Team met for final discussions on their mission trip to the United States of America. The team will be leaving on Thursday 2 August for their two-week long trip. Past Jacobus Nomdoe, of the church and director of Teen Challenge South Africa said: “We are truly blessed beyond measure for the opportunity to undertake this trip. Each of us going on this trip should view it as an opportunity to create an opportunity.” Nomdoe says the purpose of the trip is to not only to partake in community work and ministry, but also to expose the mission team to new experiences. “We want to send the message that this opportunity is not only for a selected few, but we looked at all age groups and backgrounds, especially the youth, as we want to expose them to possible study opportunities in America.” He explains the Teen Challenge “Be the Tiger” drug awareness programme is the reason the group got invited.

Verkragslagoffer verbreek stilte CARMEN JACOBS
’n Verkragtingslagoffer van Kuilsrivier het die stilte oor dié daad gebreek, selfs nadat sy deur haar vermeende verkragter met die dood gedreig is. Die dapper 18-jarige meisie van Kalkfontein is op Sondag 22 Julie na bewering deur haar stiefpa verkrag. By haar huis vertel sy hoe die gruweldaad met haar gepleeg is. Dit is glo die tweede keer dat sy deur haar stiefpa verkrag is. Die eerste
keer het sy dit ook by die polisie aangemeld, maar nadat die verdagte vir korter as ’n jaar tronkstraf uitgedien het, is hy weer vrygelaat. Daarna het hy die slagoffer weer deur hel gesit. “Die eerste keer is hy opgesluit. Ek het toe 17 jaar oud geword,” sê sy oor die eerste gruweldaad wat met haar gepleeg is. Die tengerige meisie vertel die tweede voorval het op ’n Sondagaand plaasgevind toe haar ma nie by die huis was nie. Die verdagte het glo vroeër die Sondagaand na bewering saam met vriende Man-
drax-tablette buite die huis gerook. Voor die verkragting het die verdagte die jong slagoffer gewurg en met die onderhoud met TygerBurger was daar nog krap- en kneusmerke aan haar gesig sigbaar. “Dit was laat Sondagaand en ons het al geslaap. My ma was nie hier nie en my susters het al geslaap. Toe kom maak hy my wakker en sê ek moet opstaan en na my ma se kamer toe gaan. Ek wou nie gegaan het nie, maar toe wurg hy my twee keer en stoot my na die kamer.” Ná die verkragting het die ver-

Radiokansel is terug Radiokansel is terug op die Wes-Kaapse luggolwe op 729AM en gaan uitsaai onder die naam Kaapse Kansel. Die besturende direkteur van Radiokansel, dr. Roelf Petersen, sê hulle is dié keer hier om te bly. “Alle dank en eer gaan aan ons Hemelse Vader vir hierdie fenomenale wonderwerk,” sê hy. Die nuwe radiostasie, Kaapse Kansel, sal as ’n afsonderlike radiostasie bestuur word, maar steeds die kenmerkende styl handhaaf van die vlagskip, Radiokansel, waarvoor luisteraars die afgelope 31 jaar lief geword het. “Dit is nie net ’n deurbraak nie, dis ’n wonderwerk,” sê hy. Petersen sê sodra die Kaapse span saamgestel is en alle regsformaliteite afgehandel is, sal uitsendings begin.

dagte met haar gepraat. “Hy het gesê ek moet dit stil hou tussen ons twee en as ek vir iemand sê, gaan hy my doodmaak.” Volgens die meisie het hy ook aan haar gesê sy is die een met wie hy in ’n verhouding wil wees. Die saak is by die Kuilsrivier-polisie aangemeld en reeds oorgegee vir die eenheid teen gesins-en kindergeweld (FCS) in Delft vir verdere ondersoek. Die ondersoekbeampte in die saak is sers. Ayanda Ndaba. Die verdagte, in sy vroeë veertigs, het reeds Woensdag 25 Julie sy eer-
ste verskyning in die Blue Downslanddroshof gemaak en sal weer vandag in die hof verskyn. Hy word aangekla van verkragting en aanranding. Justin Wildebees, ’n Kalkfonteingemeenskapswerker, het uitgevaar oor dié verkragting. “Hy het uit die tronk gekom, nou kom hy ons kinders teiken. Sulke soort mense soek ons nie in die gemeenskap nie.” Wildebees het gesê die gemeenskap beoog om ’n petisie by die hof in te dien om borgtog aan die verdagte teen te staan.

Ray of sunshine in a shoe box CARMEN JACOBS
Isolated, cut-off, living in dire poverty with no infrastructure is the reality for Green Park informal settlement residents. The settlement alongside the Hindle and R300 roads opposite Wesbank in Blue Downs does not even have electricity, water or the basic resources. Yet the light in their dark tunnel is the colourful, fully equipped Hobe Educare Centre where the children of parents, (most of them living below the
breadline), are accommodated daily. Last week the children of this educare received a ray of sunlight in the form of a donation by local Ward 19 councillor Cynthia Claasen. Claasen gave shoe boxes, donated to her by the Naseem International School in Bahrain. The learners at the school started the shoe box project, where a shoe box was filled with necessities for the young children at the educare centre. Claasen, who donated the 13 shoe boxes last week Friday, says the do-
nation forms part of the 67 minutes for Madiba’s birthday. “The creche is in my ward and lies very close to my heart, because of the challenging circumstances they live under, but still they do their best to go on,” said Claasen in answer to why the Educare Centre was selected as recipients of the donation. Educators at the centre are basically working for no money, says Noxolo Nkohla, principal of the centre, because parents can’t even afford the monthly fee of R100. “We are really struggling here, many parents owe fees since March
this year, but can’t afford to pay us. So we can’t turn the children away and must see that the children get food to eat here.” The daily operational activities of the centre have now been taken over by the Truimage Youth Development, a local NPO who has set up office in Green Park and now runs community upliftment projects from the premises. Veronique Ellers-Zoutman, director of Truimage Youth Development says the organisation has set up office, because of the great need existing in the area.
They have taken over the running of the creche from Elsabe Marais, founder of the facility. “The challenges of the residents here in Green Park, are: living without electricity and water supply, here is basically nothing,” says EllersZoutman. The Hobe Educare was started in 2004 and currently has 20 children and four educators. Volunteers from Truimage also assist at the facility. To provide assistance to the facility contact Veronique Ellers-Zoutman on 074 853 8988.

Literacy challenge boosts confidence Literacy is growing in schools as an exciting competition gets into the final stages. A total of 60 000 Grade 4 to 7 learners from 168 schools have participated in the first level of Growsmart, an exciting literacy competition designed to support the Western Cape Education Department’s (WCED) strategy to improve literacy at primary school level. Some 28 schools, each with a team of three learners, qualified for Level 2 of the competition that takes place during this month. “Schools from the four different education districts will be competing in Level 2 at Spine Road School in Mitchells Plain on 4 and 18 August for a sought-after place in the final,” explains Jewel Harris, assistant regional manager at Growthpoint Properties and Growsmart spokesperson. “The schools qualified following their participation in the various Level 1 rounds held from April through to June. There are fantastic prizes up for grabs: the winning school will receive improvements to their premises to the value of R200 000 and the winning learners will each receive financial assistance worth R20 000 towards their future education.” Harris added that the competition is about so much more than literacy. “It’s a terrific confidence booster for the participants, and it shows them what a hardworking and committed team can achieve together. Growsmart has won the hearts and minds of learners, teachers and the commu-
nity as a whole. It has certainly exceeded our wildest expectations,” she said Successfully launched in 2010, Growsmart is one of the corporate social investment projects of Growthpoint Properties, which is South Africa’s largest JSE-listed property company by market capitalisation and assets. The competition is aimed at learners in Grades 4, 5 and 6. Learners are required to spell, define and construct sentences using words selected from the Growsmart newspapers they read prior to each competition level. Last year’s winning school was Beacon View Primary. “Our students worked very hard to win the prize last year. We used the prize money to buy books to add to our library, build a computer centre for the kids, build a school hall, add interactive whiteboards into the classrooms, and construct a pre-school playpark with a jungle gym. This really went a long way to making life better for our learners,” says Magda Esterhuizen, principal of Beacon View Primary School in Mitchells Plain. Parents, families and communities are encouraged to come and support their children when they participate in Level 2. Schools participating in Level 2 include: Avondale Primary (Atlantis), Parkview Primary (Atlantis), Dr Van Der Ross Primary (Bellville), EA Januari Primary (Bellville), Du Noon Primary (Table View), Imvumelwano Primary (Brackenfell), and others.
Message of hope and healing A family production by Youth for Christ (with a message of hope and healing), presents “Yo Africa” at the Thornton Methodist Church Hall at 19:00 on Friday, 10 August. Buyela (Zulu word for “return”) is a group of 12 multi-cultural volunteers between the ages of 18 and 23 who travel through South Africa telling their story through dance and drama. The group is a Youth for Christ dance and drama outreach team from diverse backgrounds. These young people have gone through three months of intense training by professional coaches and Biblical teachers under very
strict discipline and mentoring. Each of them has faced various trials in their short lives and victoriously tell their stories through the drama which covers the effects of broken homes, substance abuse, sexual abuse and violence. Their purpose is to bring a message of “Hope and Healing” to the nation. It is a very lively and colourful production, which they encourage every man, women and child to see.

10 keer in ’n ry: ‘W ‘Want ant ons Kán’ Vir die tiende keer agtereenvolgens het van die land se bekendste sangers weer eens Sondagaand bewys : hulle kán en hulle hét. Die tiende Want ons Kan!/’Cause we Can!-konsert is Sondagaand in ’n emosiebelaaide, stampvol Bellville-burgersentrum aangebied en die room van Suid-Afrika se musiek- en vermaaksterre het hulself oortref. Sangers het gewys hul harte sit op die regte plekke deur heeltemal gratis by die geleentheid op te tree. Alle uitgawes van die konsert is deur borge betaal en ál die kaartjiegeld het aan die begunstigdes gegaan.TygerBurger is sedert 2005 die mediaborg van hierdie unieke verskeidenheidskonsert en vanjaar was PLWC (Cancer Buddies), Iris House and Little Fighter Cancer Trust die begunstigde organisasies. Kaartjieverkope het ’n totaal van R160 000 opgelewer, terwyl ’n reusebottel wyn en skildery van kunstenaar Marius Prinsloo opgeveil is waarmee ’n verdere R12 000 ingesamel is.
Laurika Rauch was vanjaar se wenner van die Want ons Kan!/’Cau se we Can!inspirasie prys. As deel van haar prys, het sy ’n skildery ontvang wat spesiaal deur die kunstenaar Marius Prinsloo vir haar geskilder is. Laurika was opsigtelik aangedaan deur die groot eer en die gehoor se staande toejuiging. Foto’s: Carina Roux
Die operasanger Zanne Stapelberg het die gehoor betower met haar onge looflike stem, én laat lag omdat sy kaalvoet gesing het nadat sy haar skoene tuis vergeet het. Allan Committie, die seremo niemeester, het vir baie humor gesorg en dikwels mense in die gehoor uitgesoek om die spot mee te dryf.
Op die verhoog is sy Dowwe Dolla, maar agter die skerms is Margit MeyerRö denbeck ook een van die groot dryfvere agter Want ons Kan! Sy het die gehoor laat skater deur on der meer “rugby” uit te saai.
Stef Bos het vertel hoekom hy so lief vir SuidAfrika is. Hy het onder meer ’n liedjie saam met Koos Kombuis uitgevoer.
Corlea Botha se vertolking van “Sonvanger” het die gehoor aan haar voete gehad. Elvis Blue was een van baie Idolsname wat op getree en met groot pas sie gesing het.
’n Ligvoetige en snaakse Emo Adams het die aand op ’n hoë noot afgesluit met sy groep, Take Note.
Karen Zoid en Hanry Steele het ’n lied van haar nuwe album, Zoid Afrika, gesing, terwyl hulle die kitare warm geslaan het.

1 000 lives saved if rules respected
The Department of Transport and Public Works celebrated 1 000 Lives Saved due to the Safely Home Project on Tuesday, 24 July. The Safely Home project reflects on the 1 000 people who would have been dead if it were not for this initiative. Family and friends who played a role in the success of this project gathered to celebrate the milestone. “We are beginning to cultivate a culture that respects the rules of the road,” said MEC Robin Carlisle. A few programmes adding to the success of this project include weekend alco-
Children in Bonteheuwel are packing away their PlayStations this weekend – and shining up their goene. While the slightly older generation in the community’s eyes will light up with the local names for different types of marbles like ironies, soudies, and tamaties, it seems like a new generation is learning the game with an exciting initiative in the community. A young man in Bonteheuwel wants to bring back those carefree days of youth playing safely in the outdoors before X-Boxes and Nintendo kept them glued to a TV screen. Dean Jates has started the DLJ 100% Human Project, and in partnership with Umbon’omhle Youth Development Organisation, will be hosting the second Gattie/Marble competition in Bonteheuwel and Langa. Jates said that this is the second time that a similar event is held. “Last year we started with something small just for the Bonteheuwel area and it was very successful,” he said. “This year’s competition the battle will in-
clude players from Langa, and we are hoping that it will spread wider. “The competitions will start this Saturday at the Thusong Centre in Bonteheuwel, and then alternate with a site in Noxolo Street, Langa, for the next three weeks.” Jates, also an accomplished film maker, revealed that his plan for the children of the community was to give them an insight into how games like marbles, playing with a top, kennetjie, and klippetjies (five stones) can be part of their learning experience. “It’s time that they get away from those TV screens and become active in games like these, because they are learning about the legacies and culture of their communities. “These events will also be used as a showcase for some of the musical talents that we have within the community so there will be lots of entertainment during breaks in the competitions. We will also be filming.” The Thusong Service Centre is on the corner of Jakkalsvlei and Elder Streets in Bonteheuwel and the activities start at 09.30. Jates can be contacted on 074 658 5539 or email Deanjates@yahoo.com.

Love Bombs drops three short movies The Love Bombs film festival will take place this week at The Labia on Orange. The Love Bombs project has been a journey involving more than 250 volunteers who gave up their valuable time and resources, shot footage all across Cape Town, and worked together over a nine month period; all with the sole intention of changing lives, one film at a time. Three different directors and film crews, with no initial budget, have created three short, punchy films, with completely different themes and genres. Each short film is unique; written, filmed and acted by locals. iBalaclava follows the story of Zolani, a struggling street vendor who turns to an act of crime to provide for his younger brother and himself. The Second Day is set in a post-
apocalyptic prison, where corrupt guards are entertained by betting on inmates in cage fights, until a newly arrived inmate challenges the ring leader to a death match. The Prodigal follows the story of a young man who leaves his father’s household in pursuit of love and acceptance, and is soon faced with the reality of his choice: Is this truly what he has been searching for? Every night movie-goers will have the opportunity to experience all three of the Love Bombs’ short films, and will hear from the film makers themselves. The festival runs from 3 to 9 August. For more information, visit www.lovebombs.co.za. . Visit www.tygerburger.co.za to watch the trailer for iBalaclava.

At the SA Children's Home, the children always come first.
Woensdag 1 Augustus 2012
Outdoor activities are high up on the list of priorities for the children.
Home from home gives kids new self belief ANDRÉ BAKKES
The 14-year-old boy’s frightened eyes desperately look for comfort. He first notices the inviting couches and the homely coffee table on his left and then a faint smile permeates through his despair when he spots a grand bookshelf stuffed with age-old knowledge on his right. For a second the boy wants to lose himself in the books, but he is urged to follow the group of people mulling about him. Everyone apart from his parents gives him friendly and supportive glances. He is told that the South African Children’s Home was the first of its kind in the country, having been started by Margaretha Möller in
1808. There is a growing feeling of hope for the boy. Besides the warm glow of the staff, every time he stares through the window he is comforted by the ever-present Table Mountain shepherding him. The group is taken on a tour of the whole facility, which includes a dining room, a kitchen, bedrooms and studies. There is even a swimming pool, a soccer field and a couple of big screen televisions! He is, however, told that the home values reading and sport considerably more than watching television. In another room, Sandra Collins, talks to TygerBurger about the home, which is registered to accommodate 44 children between the ages of six and 18 years. She has been the manager for six
years, but has been involved with the home for close to 30 years. “We assess and evaluate each child individually and then place them in a school in and around Cape Town,” she explains. The misperception that children live indefinitely in a children’s home must be changed, especially since the Child Care Act was amended recently. “Children come here in accordance with a court order for a shorter period and in that time we will work intensely with the family of origin. Our focus falls on family reunification,” continues Collins. If the family set-up isn’t functioning properly and the child isn’t in a safe environment then a social worker will recommend to the courts to temporarily remove the
child from the family’s care. “We have 12 staff members which includes a full-time social worker, a fundraiser, an admin person, seven child care workers and a chief child care worker. We are also very fortunate to have a multi professional team of volunteers consisting of a child psychiatrist, an educational psychologist, occupational therapist, an educationalist and a medical doctor.” Meanwhile, something remarkable happened at the end of the tour for the 14-year-old boy. A visibly enchanted and contented old man walked into the home with two young children by his side. As it turned out they were his grandchildren, whom he wanted to show where he himself grew up so
many years ago. The 14-year-old boy blossoms. If anyone would like to help the SA Children’s Home they can contact them on 021 423 1328 or go to www.sakinderhuis.org. On 1 September Sanlam and TygerBurger will be organising a “Women’s Day” fundraiser for the home at Hillcrest in Durbanville.The festive morning will see various speakers such as Dr Wolfgang Riebe delivering motivational talks. A light lunch and a giant glutenfree chocolate cake will also be on the menu. Bookings can be made with Sanlam Client Contact Centre’s Melinda Pretorius at 021 916 6191.
Mom’s living hell with addict kids DESIREÉ RORKE
After seven torturous years of enduring the hellish consequences of drug abuse by both her children, Susan Esterhuizen of Kraaifontein did the unthinkable. Susan’s two children were only 13 and 15 when they started abusing drugs, and at a very young age were sent to Noupoort, the first of a series of rehabilitation centres. They spent 52 months there. “It was a good resting period for me and I was at peace to know that at least my children were in a safe place,” she says. “But after they were released, things got worse. I tried everything I could to help my children but it all seemed in vain.” After yet another spate in rehab, again both her children chose drugs, and consequently moved out of her house to live with other family members. “At this point they told the world that I didn’t care, and I didn’t want them any more. But this was far removed from the truth. “Children who abuse drugs are out to manipulate their parents, and for a very long time I felt guiltridden and emotionally drained. I tried to analyse events to find where I went wrong as a parent. I felt ashamed of myself.”
Susan Esterhuizen at one of the welfare organisations she volunteers with currently. As the years passed by both her children refused any help and continued their habit at the cost of their family life. “My son was involved with car theft and was charged with the possession of a stolen vehicle and spent six months in custody at Goodwood Prison. I spent a lot of money to get
him off and save him from a sevenyear prison term,” she says. Instead he received a sentence of two years under house arrest and Susan hoped that he would finally find his way. But soon temptation again gave way and with the help of the prison welfare system her son was placed
in De Novo rehabilitation centre for seven weeks. “When he came out he looked so good and I was overjoyed. At last one of my children could be saved from the clutches of drugs,” she says. But again her hopes were dashed. “This time he went and lived with his long-time girlfriend and their two beautiful children, but very soon she sent him to me as she could not cope with his drug habits any more. “Drug addicts will steal from anyone to satisfy their craving. They become aggressive and violent and it does not matter what their loved ones do to try and help them it is all for nothing,” she says. Meanwhile, her daughter also moved back to her, and between the two children they sold almost everything of value in her house. The pressure was mounting and after a year, which Susan describes of one of the worst of her life, she was finally forced to resign from her employment, due to stress. “I could not face life any more, it was all becoming too much for me,” she says. One morning when Susan realised she did not even have money left for food and was facing a real possibility of losing her house, she decided enough was enough. With the help of her local police station she went to the Kuils River
court and applied for a domestic violence interdict against both her children. A domestic violence interdict, otherwise known as a protection order, can be obtained in a magistrate’s court, free of charge. The abuse mentioned above can take the form of verbal, physical, financial or emotional or psychological abuse and must involve a member of the household. Once a party is in possession of such an interdict the police can intervene and lock someone up in case of a domestic argument. “After I received it, I warned them. But two months ago my daughter again stole something of mine and I laid a charge against her. The police caught her with Mandrax the next day and she was sent to Pollsmoor..” At the same time her son continued with his abuse and Susan decided to lay a charge against him as well and he too was sent to prison. “The day had arrived when the heart of a mother was turned to stone. I realised that I had to do something to protect myself, and refused to withdraw the charges against them. My aim is to reach out to communities to face the fast growing Third World War – that of drug abuse.” Contact Susan to get involved with her ministry on 078 6744 353 or Esterhuizen.email@example.com.

Cleaner and safer The streets of Bellville and Parow will soon be cleaner and safer, with the official launch of the Voortrekker Road Corridor Improvement District (VRCID) today 1 August. Derek Bock, chief operations officer of the VRCID, says all plans are in place to tackle crime and grime head-on. As from today, VRCID levy payers will be able to contact a security operations control room with any security concerns 24 hours a day on 072 792 7168. Cape Town’s newest and largest city improvement district will deploy additional cleansing teams and private security officers within the VRCID, mainly along Voortrekker and Durban Roads. A total of 100 jobs are created with the launch of the VRCID. The daytime, night time and reserve guards all received specialist training in security and cleansing. The VRCID will deploy seven mobile patrol vehicles and 20 security
officers, all clearly branded – seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Private security service provider Orbis Security will also man a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week VRCID security operations control centre. The VRCID is part of the Mayoral Urban Regeneration Programme of the City of Cape Town, led by Mayor Patricia de Lille. “It is very important to remember the VRCID, like all CIDs only provides top up services, over and above that which the city must supply in terms of urban management,” said Bock. He said the CID was not there to take over the city’s services. Via its cleansing service provider, the VRCID appointed an additional 15 street cleaners per day, who will sweep and clean the streets and collect illegal dumping. The VRCID will also coordinate their cleansing operations with the city so as to maximise all staff. In terms of the powers of arrest, VRCID security officers, like members of the public, can execute a citi-
zen’s arrest. “If our security officers arrest a person for theft as an example, patrol vehicles will respond to the specific incident and transport the offender to a police station for processing,” said Bock. He said this was a clear example of how the VRCID will support the police and how they wished to work with them. Bock said he would foster relations with non-governmental organisations working within the VRCID to address the issue of homelessness as this goes hand in hand with security. “Homelessness is not a crime but being homeless does not give any person the right to aggressively beg or harass members of the public, litter or urinate on the streets,” said Bock. “I make an urgent appeal to all members of the public to please stop giving to those who beg on the streets, by giving cash, food or even clothing – you are responsible for keeping them on the streets,” he

House party turns to out-of-control street bash DESIREÉ RORKE
An out-of control house party inspired by the cult movie Project X and attended by about 1 000 youths, recently caused pandemonium in a quiet street in Northpine, Kraaifontein. After a night of chaos and noise, nearby residents were shocked and outraged by this new youth fad, and fear that more parties of this kind are in the pipeline. The City of Cape Town, however, has investigated the incident and warned youngsters that they will
remain on high alert in case of another party in the area. Project X, a comedy film released in March this year, is based on a story of three friends who plan to gain popularity by throwing a huge party. In the movie, word of the party however spreads like wildfire and very soon it escalates out of their control when hundreds of partygoers from around the city arrive at the house with hair-raising consequences. In Cape Town, this movement very quickly gained a big following
with youths attempting to see who can create the biggest house party, says Grant Twigg, chairman of the Bergdal subcouncil and adds that naturally every by-law in the book was broken. The invitation which was circulated by email and SMS reads as follows: “Tonight will be epic night to remember. If your up for a Project X , .................., Northpine, Brackenfell, is where you want to be tonight btwn 8 and 9.. Over enough parking for everyone..bring your friends, and their friends and their friends friends.some nigga’s with more nig-
ga’s who know nigga’s. Bring own XYZ and other stuff...keep the bc going..so far so good!! ..its a night of partying and nontheless *beer*”. “According to our knowledge news of this party spread across the city very quickly and young people from all over arrived in hordes. They ended up partying in the street, jamming every single driveway and blocking traffic. The park in the street was also used, and everywhere open cars were blaring loud music with youths drinking and dancing. The next day hundreds of bottles were left strewn in
the streets and parks,” he says and adds that the parents of the youths was out of town over that weekend and not aware of the party. Twigg is adamant that this type of behaviour is unacceptable in a residential suburb and last week told TygerBurger that the city will pull out all the stops to ensure that this does not happen again. “I am constantly being updated with new information of parties being planned. If and when this happens in our area again, we will arrest and lock them all up,” he warned.

Cindy Jacobs and Danielle Jones in a scene from I Am Dance.
Lighting up the Baxter stage The Afrika Ablaze Dance Company is getting ready to light up the Baxter stage once more. For the past 10 years they have worked relentlessly at helping children, specifically those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to transform their lives through the medium of dance, drama and music. Highly acclaimed choreographer and dance teacher, Glenda Jones, founder and owner of Afrika Ablaze has been instrumental in developing young dancers into wellseasoned performers, who to date have graced the stages of Artscape, The CTICC, The Baxter and The National Grahamstown Arts Festival. Their latest production, I Am Dance, is a celebration of pure passion, inspiration, dedication, natural talent, unbridled energy
and glorious creativity. Afrika Ablaze is renowned for transcending the boundaries of conventional dance. The cast of 50 young performers have contributed to the choreographic content of the show and this, Jones claims, is why it will surprise audiences and lovers of dance. Ballet, hip-hop, contemporary, African jazz, cabaret and kwaito form part of this bold and innovative show. I Am Dance delves into the heart of a dancer and aims to unveil why dance has and can become a home for many who search for acceptance, love and happiness. It starts at the Baxter tonight and runs until 4 August. There will be two performances of the show on Saturday at 14:00 and at 20:00. Bookings at Computicket or from 078 478 9847.

Tygerberg sorg vir groot skok SAREL BURGER
Wanneer ’n potensiële kampioen deur ’n agteros geklop word, is dit ’n skok. Maar as dit boonop twee spanne van die Tygerbergstreek is wat ter sprake is, dan sorg dit vir drama. Durbanville/Bellville, die voorloper op die punteleer, is die afgelope naweek in die WP se Premier-rugbyliga sy onoorwonne status ontneem deur die Tygerberg-klub. Laasgenoemde was tot voor hierdie wedstryd tweede van onder op die puntelys in die A-afdeling en het afskuiwing na die B-afdeling in die gesig begin staar. Dit mag wees dat die Durbies die besoekers onderskat het, maar twee geelkaarte, asook die feit dat Durbanville nie toegelaat is om sy gebruiklike konstruktiewe spel te lewer nie, het ’n vasberade en doelgerigte Tygerberg in staat gestel om vyf keer agter die tuisspan se doellyn te gaan draai (teenoor die Durbies se vier drieë) en daarmee ’n verrassende oorwinning van 35-26 behaal. Die Floridapark-span het hier-
mee vir eers uit die relegasie-gevaarsone beweeg, maar kort gewis nog ’n oorwinning of twee om sy verblyf in die A-afdeling te beveilig. Belhar, wat ’n paar weke laas in aksie was, is 35-25 deur die Victoriane geklop. In die B-afdeling, waar Noordelikes/Northlink-kollege en Bellville in ’n wedloop gewikkel is vir bevordering na die hoër liga, het hierdie twee spanne albei aan die wenkant geëindig – NNK met ’n rekordtelling van 90-19 teen Pniël Villagers, terwyl Bellville 34-28 met Goodwood afgereken het. Kuilsrivier het 22-20 deurgeskuur teen Brackenfell, maar Hands & Heart kon Helderberg, die voorloper op die puntelys, nie in toom hou nie en is met 47-15 verslaan. Die komende Saterdag kry Durbanville/Bellville op sy tuisveld die geleentheid om te toon dat sy oorwinning oor die Maties in ronde een geen gelukskoot was nie. Die res van die program (tuisspan eerste) is: Belhar t Valsbaai, Victoriane t Tygerberg, Brackenfell t NNK, Pniël Villagers t Hands & Heart, Helderberg t Kuilsrivier. Bellville en Goodwood het loslootjies.

Paul Mackenzie, who coaches some of the country’s top professional golfers, is also grooming some young talent in obtaining their PGA golf diplomas. Mackenzie, who is based in Bellville, heads The Golf School of Excellence. “This programme has been running for six very successful years in Johannesburg and this is the first year we have run it in Cape Town. Turn your passion for golf into an exciting career. I think that sums up what we are doing. “Students have a strict and full schedule and they have the option of becoming a professional player or coach, club manager, administrator, fitness trainer or golf course architect to name a few. “All the aspects will be covered in this course, including the physical fitness and mental aspect of the game. “This diploma is recognised in 40 countries, making their possibilities endless in seeking the perfect job,” said Mackenzie.

Going for gold at Paralympics STEHAN SCHOEMAN
It’s been a long and bumpy road for Renette Bloem but a dream come true to represent South Africa on the grandest stage of them all – the Paralympic Games in London. The blind 48-year-old from Brackenfell believes she has a realistic chance to make the final of her main and favourite event, the 100m breaststroke. The Paralympic Games run from 29 August to 9 September at the same venues as the Olympic Games already in full swing. The South African team can only include five men and five women swimmers. “I’ve always had a love for water and started swimming at school. I lost interest for a while and did some serious road running. I like the 10km to 21km range of races. “In 2007 I was back in the pool and haven’t looked back since.” At the World Championships in 2010 held in Holland, Bloem made the finals of the 100m breaststroke placing fourth, showing that she can compete with the best on the planet. Last year Turkey hosted the Internation-
al Blind Sport Federation Championships where Bloem won silver. She also beat Natalie du Toit earlier this year in Durban in the 100m breaststroke, winning Gold. “It’s been very tough, at 48 you have to manage your body and be aware not to over-train. Currently I practise six days a week for two to three hours a day. I wake up at 04:00 to be in the pool by 05:00. “Luckily the gym is basically across the road for me. Sometimes I go through to Stellenbosch as they have a starting block that is the same as we will use in London. “I don’t believe I am a given medallist, but if one is in a final, anything can happen. In 2010 I set the South African record in the 100 breaststroke at 1.38.67. My other races are the 50m and 100m freestyle and 200m individual medley. “This will be my last competitive championships, so I will give it my absolute best to end on a high. Although I am very focused on the job at hand, I can’t wait to get home after the Games and just lead a normal life. “Preparing for the Paralympics takes over your whole life,” said Bloem. Few people know that Bloem is family of the Olympic medallist Ryk Neethling.
Renette Bloem is hopeful of a medal at the Paralympic Games.
Relegation looms for some this weekend THOMAS CAROLUS
Central will look to push Kraaifontein City closer to relegation from the Northern Suburbs Local Football Association Super League when the teams meet at Symphony Park in Belhar on Sunday afternoon, kick-off at 14:00. Central come into the game with a win over Kalksteenfontein on Saturday, but a three-match unbeaten streak prior to that victory demonstrates that Giles Julies’ side are in good nick as far as form is concerned. That is not something one can say about Kraaifontein City, who look destined to fall through the trapdoor and be relegated to the lower division. They are second last on the league standings, three points adrift of Wayside Wanderers who are bottom on the log with five points, and a further four from 14th place occupied by United.

Bellstar United, who looked in danger of being dragged into the relegation mire at one stage this season, have all but secured their top flight status for next season thanks to a 16point buffer to the danger zone. Belhar Spurs will look to get back to winning ways when they host Trinitarians at Sympho-
ny Park. kick-off at 15:30. The Erica Park side put together a string of three straight wins from June into early July that lifted them out of the danger zone at the bottom of the table, but taking just one point from their last two outings means they are still very much in danger of being drawn
back into the bottom two. They narrowly lost away to log leaders Riverside Rangers at Avonwood Park. Now they will look to draw on the determination they showed in that game in order to overcome Trinitarians, a team that is in good form. Trinitarians are placed fifth.
