FROM 20 YEARS: DOWN TO 8 YEARS

Sentence reduced TANDY­LEE MARINUS

Jacob Humphreys of Eerste River, the taxi driver responsi­ ble for the death of 10 children in August 2010. Humphreys’ minibus taxi collided with a train on the Buttskop railway in Blackheath.

“O

ne day is one day, when he will have to take responsibility. The saddest part is losing a child, but it is 10 times worse for a mother.” These are the words of Valerie Phillips, the mother of Jody Phillips (16), who lost his life on that fateful day more than two years ago when 10 children lost their lives at the Buttskop railway crossing in Blackheath. She spoke willingly with emotions overflowing. This after the decision to reduce the 20 year sentence on murder accused taxi driver Jacob Humphreys (65), raised eyebrows.

Set aside Humphreys’ murder convictions were set aside last Friday, ultimately replacing them with culpable homicide. His sentence was reduced from an effective 20 years, to only eight. “This case is very sensitive for the community of Blackheath especially and for the parents. It opened a lot of wounds,” said Councillor Bertus van Dalen. “The outcome of the whole case was very disappointing. On the other hand, even if he got 100 years, or walked a free man, it’s not going to change what happened,” Valerie added. She recalls that it is the smallest things which remind her of Jody that hurt the most. “In the morning it is especially difficult because when I pack lunch, his lunchbox is not there. “When I dish-up food in the evenings his plate is not there,” said Valerie. Valerie has since developed a constant worry factor for her son, Kadey. “I get butterflies when I receive a call, because I wonder if something happened to Kadey,” she said. Emotional Compared to the convictions delivered by the Western Cape High Court on 11 March, Valerie describes the decision, by the Supreme Court, as the worst outcome. “I was emotional the whole weekend. As parents, I feel as though we are the joke of the town,” said Valerie. She keeps the memory of Jody alive

through still attending to his room and adding photos of him and his friends and family. “He (Humphreys) is not a factor in my life any more. It is sad that he cannot take his punishment like a man,” said Valerie. “Subcouncil 21 together with the parents are in the process of building a monument in remembrance of the death of the children.” Minister of Transport and Public Works in

the Western Cape, Robin Carlisle, delivered his feelings on the decision made.

Road behaviour Carlisle respected the judgement and emphasised the reckless and irresponsible behaviour which is still experienced on our roads. “The decision to reduce the sentence and convictions is very disappointing as it

shows that the highest courts have yet to fully understand the need for consequences as a deterrent to dangerous behaviour we see on roads, as well as a tool to ending road carnage,” said Carlisle. Valerie and her husband Kingsley, started a support group in honour of Jody to reach out to other people and the community. “I leave him (Humphreys) in the hands of the heavenly Father.”

Verhaal van kruisiging uitgebeeld Die verhaal van Jesus se kruisiging word in April in ’n teaterproduksie in die Bellville-burgersentrum uitgebeeld. “He’s Alive” is van Woensdag 17 April tot Sondag 21 April vanaf 19:30 op die planke. Middagvertonings word op Saterdag 20 April en Sondag 21 April vanaf 14:30 opgevoer. Toegang is gratis, maar geleentheid sal gegee word vir donasies. Dié opvoering dek die gebeure net voor Jesus se kruisiging, Sy dood en opstanding.

’n Groep vrywilligers dra met sang en dans die diep, betekenisvolle boodskap oor. Stan Burgett, skepper van die produksie, het die organisasie, Passion Play Ministries International, sowat 28 jaar gelede in Amerika tot stand gebring. Kaapstad was 16 jaar gelede in 1997 die eerste stad buite die VSA wat dié opvoering beleef het. Bronwyne Scott, ’n teaterveteraan van 34 jaar, is die regisseur. Die voorsitter van Passion Play Kaapstad, Melvyn Abrahams, ver-

tolk ook die rol van Jesus. Van die karakters wat optree, is ma’s en pa’s, huisvroue, rekenmeesters, onderwysers, skoolkinders, oupas en oumas en selfs ’n blinde persoon – almal wat ’n verskil wil maak in die gemeenskap. “Hierdie passiespel is anders as al die rolprente en konserte oor die lewe van Jesus wat ek al gesien het. Dit het my diep geraak!” het ’n gehoorlid verlede jaar gesê. V Vir meer inligting, bel Bronwyne by 084 769 7350 of stuur ’n e­pos na bronwyne@mweb.co.za.

City: ‘Please register your boreholes’ The city encouraged by the response to boreholes and well-point registration drive. The city appeals to those with boreholes or well-points on their properties to register or re-register on its database, in the spirit of Water Month. The information obtained during the borehole/well-point registration process is required for statistical data purposes only and no charges are levied. There has been a steady increase in the number of boreholes and well-point registrations across the city – especially during March this year, which is also the city’s Water Month.

Apart from information, owners will also receive a new borehole/well-point sign which must be prominently displayed on the boundary of the premises. The effective use of boreholes and wellpoints for non-drinking purposes, such as irrigating gardens, reduces the demand on drinking water from the city’s water mains, and is therefore encouraged. “We would like to appeal to those who have these water resource applications on their premises to please register them with the city’s water and sanitation department at no charge. “As a Caring City, we recognise and ap-

City works for skaters too A skateboarding task team was formed by the City of Cape Town to cater for the need of skateboarders around the city. According to Brett Herron, mayco member for transport, roads and stormwater, the task team wants to open the channels of communication between affected parties to solve mutual issues. “In doing so we want to develop a comprehensive strategy to ensure the integration of skateboarding as a mode of transport and a form of recreation.” He says this strategy will consist of the identification of skating facilities and the infrastructure requirements of skating within the city, the formulation of a mutually agreeable policy for the regulation of

skateboarding, and the implementation of practical steps that accommodate the needs of both skaters and the general public. “It is with great optimism that I greet the formation of this task team. “I believe that this forum gives us every chance of finding common ground between the city, skateboarders and the non-skateboarding public,” Herron said. Marco Morgan, speaking on behalf of the National Skate Collective, has welcomed the positive approach taken by the city in this regard. He and the rest of the team representing the skating community, are looking forward to the imminent commencement of scheduled monthly meetings.

When it comes to education it’s a case of like mother like daughter for the Constance family in Belhar. It should always be a family affair when somebody graduates and Perlin Constance was looking forward to having her mother, Linda, at her graduation at UWC for her LLB degree, but it was not to be, her mom had to be at her own graduation at the University of Stellenbosch, on the same day. “I’m still very upset with her,” teases Perlin. “But, I am very proud of my mom for her achievement and I know that there will be another chance for her when I continue my

studies.” Linda, a teacher at Klipfontein Primary, attained her BEd Hons. She has been a teacher for the past 30 years and feels that this achievement should be a motivation for everybody. “You’re never to old to learn,” she says. “For me my daughter played a big part in motivating me to upgrade my skills and its been tough, but now I feel that my new skills will play a bigger part in my career as a teacher. It must also be a motivation for young and old, that you can achieve a positive potential.” Perlin, who matriculated from Belhar High, admitted that she has always wanted to study law.

Nuwe straatname ’n turksvy vir baie ROWENA HENDRICKS Die verandering van talle bekende hoofstraat- en plekname, wat verlede Vrydag deur die Kaapse stadsraad aangekondig is, is ’n turksvy vir baie. Volgens Patricia de Lille, burgemeester van Kaapstad, weerspieël dié benamingsproses die stadsraad se verbintenis tot versoening, regstelling en ’n gedeelde toekoms. Twee van die bekende straatname wat verander gaan word, is Hendrik Verwoerd-rylaan na Uys Krige-rylaan en Modderdamweg na Robert Sobukweweg. Krige en Sobukwe word só vereer vir hul bydra tot ons land se geskiedenis. Nie almal is dit eens dit is ’n goeie besluit nie. Veral sake-ondernemings wat in dié strate geleë is, gaan kwaai deur die naamsverandering geraak word. Ada Voges, eienaar van die Tyger Classique-gastehuis in Bellville, sê sy is nie heeltemal ten gunste van die naamsverandering nie. Haar familie besit en bestuur die gastehuis en hulle sal baie tyd, geld en energie aan die verandering moet bestee om besonderhede op onder meer webtuistes, naamborde, visitekaartjies, webwerwe, skryfbehoeftes en promosiemateriaal te verander.

Onkoste “Dit het baie gevolge en onkoste. Finansieël is dit ’n baie slegte skuif,” meen sy. David du Plessis van David B du Plessis Photography in Loevenstein was nie bewus van die straatnaamsverandering nie. “Ek is nou bietjie meer as ’n jaar hier. Ek sal moet gaan dink, want dit is die eerste keer wat so iets met my gebeur. Dit beteken ek moet my adres oral verander, soos op my webtuiste, op Google Maps en sal selfs met my kliënte moet opvolg om hulle hiervan in kennis te stel,” sê hy.

“Ons het reeds saam met ’n paar ander sake-ondernemings in Hendrik Verwoerd-rylaan ’n petisie onderteken en ingedien teen die naamsverandering na Uys Krige-rylaan,” sê Lise van Schalkwyk, wie se man sy eie onderneming Jgn Cooling CC bedryf. “Hulle verander tog net die naam van een politikus na dié van ’n ander. Die munisipaliteit skiet hulself in die voet, want hulle sê gaan groen en bespaar, maar nou moet daar byvoorbeeld hoeveel bome afgekap word vir die drukwerk om die adres van ’n onderneming te verander. Dis belaglik,” sê sy.

Verkeersirkels “Hoekom rig hulle nie eerder verkeersirkels hier op om jaagduiwels te stuit nie?” Johan Nortjé, eienaar van Leisureland Campworld in Modderdamweg, wat voortaan as Robert Sobukweweg bekend sal staan, het gesê dis die eerste woord wat hy hiervan hoor. “Ek sien geen positiewe impak wat dié straatnaamverandering sal hê nie, dis net negatief. Die kostes met die verandering van veral skryfbehoeftes en meer...dis baie hartseer,” sê hy. Ondanks die bekommernisse van baie, is Erica Kotze, praktykbestuurder van die Panorama-dierekliniek, en Pieter Blaauw, voorsitter van die Bellville-gemeenskapspolisiëringsforum (GPF), dit eens dat die impak van die straatnaamveranderings nie so groot is nie. “Dis nie só sleg nie. Ek sal my skryfbehoeftes moet verander, maar ’n mens kan die besigheidskaartjies stelselmatig inwerk,” sê Kotze. “Ek het eers oor die naweek gehoor, maar ek sien geen impak aan ons kant nie. Niemand het nog enige kwessies oor die naamsverandering onder my aandag gebring nie,” sê Blaauw.

Gert Pieterse (middel) van Balvenie het ’n yskas gewen, Susan Anderson, ook van Balvenie (links), ’n broodrooster en Marion Naidoo van Connaught is met ’n mikrogolfoond huis toe.

Wenners glimlag breed Omdat hulle “nee” sê vir Free Riders, is daar elke week Kapenaars wat vet pryse wen. Eienaars van koop- of huurhuise van die Stad Kaapstad, wat hul rekeninge betaal of wat reëlings tref om dit te betaal, kwalifiseer om pryse te wen. Honderde mense kom elke Saterdag by verskillende sentrums in die Kaap bymekaar vir groot pret, musiek en die kans om pryse te wen. Verlede Saterdag het die wenners uit Elsiesrivier gekom.

Elke Saterdag word duisende rande se pryse soos ’n yskas, mikrogolfoond, ketel en broodrooster weggegee. Dit is deel van die Stad Kaapstad en TraceOnline se veldtog om eienaars en huurders van stad-skemahuise te help om nie hul huise te verloor nie en reëlings te tref om agterstallige bedrae maklik af te betaal.

Life skills and HIV support GARY VAN DYK A special sponsorship exists in training youths to tackle HIV/Aids in their communities. Mylan is a global pharmaceutical company supplying anti-retroviral (ARV) medication to communities. When their cycling team was in town recently to take part in the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour, their focus was on far more than two wheels and a long road. The team met up with the 27 youths Mylan has sponsored to become peer-to-peer counsellors with the NGO Youth At Risk, based at the Delft police station. The company is backing up its entry to the communities with a youth awareness

campaign that will see these 27 youngsters being trained to share life skills and experiences with other at-risk young people in the area. These participants will discuss issues that include HIV and behaviours around it, drugs, abuse and other matters that affect their communities on a daily basis. Gary Bonney, Director of AfriSIDA and programme manager of one2many and EnoughIsEnough, says that empowering these youths to advocate physical and mental wellness, as well as healthier behaviours, among their peers will include social activities like swimming, karate and other events that draw youngsters together and offer opportunities to build confidence while educating each other.

‘Don’t let Down Syndrome get you down’ is the message GARY VAN DYK “Don’t let Down Syndrome get you down!” That is the message to the community from the Down Syndrome Support group in Cape Town as their group in Bonteheuwel got together last Thursday to celebrate International Down Syndrome Day which coincided with Human Rights Day in South Africa. There was lots of excitement as the group gathered in Bluegum Avenue at the start of their awareness march with the Netreg Community Brass Band warming up on the sidelines with some catchy tunes. Faseega Coetzee, whose daughter has Down Syndrome, encourages all parents with children who have the condition, cere-

bral palsy or other intellectual disabilities to join the group. “Our group plays a big part in giving our children the best help that they need for a better quality of life,” she said. “Once a month, Val Hoy, a social worker from Red Cross Hospital visits us and gives us valuable advice on how to deal with everyday challenges that we face. “It is very important to realise that these children are born with many qualities and abilities, but it is up to us as parents and caregivers to see that these are developed to the fullest.” V For more information about the support group for Down Syndrome or any other information please phone Coetzee on 074 302 5937 or Natasha October on 079 935 2477.

Members of the brass band warm up before the awareness march.

Good convictions by SAPS The Mfuleni South African Police Service (SAPS), confirmed that on Friday, 15 March, Wandisile Memani (27) and Monde Qina (22) were found guilty of murder, attempted murder, hijacking, robbery and the possession of a prohibited firearm. Each suspect was sentenced to 65 years’ imprisonment. In a separate incident a suspect, Julian Arendse (22), broke into a house in Wesbank and stole a music sound system and a suitcase full of clothes. He was sentenced on 18 March to five years’ imprisonment for housebreaking and theft. Lwazi Nontyi (37) has also been sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment after he stabbed his nine-year-old niece with a bottle neck.

He further assaulted his sister on the same day and was arrested and charged with assault with grievous bodily harm. The Station commander of SAPS Mfuleni, Colonel Luyanda Damoyi, would like to take this opportunity and encourage the community to report cases of domestic violence and co-operate with the police in terms of providing information. “This sentence shows that when there is co-operation from all parties it is possible to get good convictions and these perpetrators of crime be put behind the bars where they belong,” said Damoyi. He would also like to take the opportunity to extend his appreciation to the men and women in blue, who work tirelessly to ensure that convictions are obtained and criminals stay behind bars.

Mosaic says be the change you want to see in society TANDY­LEE MARINUS The Mosaic Training Service and healing centre for women, recently hosted an awareness and outreach event for the Eerste River community. The event was held on 20 March, at the Kleinvlei Community Hall, where the theme, “Remembering the past and celebrating the future” was introduced. A generous crowd, which turned out, were educated and entertained. This was in honour of what happened more than 53 years ago, on the fateful day of Human Rights day on 21 March, to commemorate what is also commonly known as the Sharpeville Massacre. Programme manager at Mosaic, Kerryn Rehse said: “What we looking at is to have people take responsibility. To be the change they want to see in the community.” Various community organisations offered insight and contributed their services such as iThemba Labs, Abafazi iThemba, Teen Challenge and members from the Blue Downs court took part in the initiative, delivering either motivational speeches or eye-opening performances about making choices in life, which proved to be very interactive with the crowd. “This is to ensure that 21 March is not only celebrated as a public holiday but that it is remembered for what took place more than 50 years ago,” said Mia van Heerden,

zone manager of Mosaic. Mosaic engages in workshops for abused women, domestic violence, HIV awareness and counselling. The crowd, hailing mostly from Wesbank, Blue Downs and Kleinvlei, was made aware of their resources, such as Mosaic to be used when addressing such instances. Pastor Aubrey Botha, of the Kleinvlei Community Police Forum (CPF), encouraged change in the community and the role of children and parents. “Children should be children, they should be allowed to play. It is time that we as parents become prime educators of our children,” said Aubrey. A pledge was done by each and every member of the community whereby their fingerprints were imprinted to a declaration. This was to respect the rights of others, speak out against violence and to never commit or condone violence against women, to name a few. “If we want everyone to have the same human rights, then they should protect it,” said Kerryn. Kerryn hopes that community stops living in the past and promotes change today.

‘May Bluedowns be the best school ever’ TANDY­LEE MARINUS “Blue Downs, Blue Downs, Blue Downs Primary School – We love you.” The chanting of these very words will start a much anticipated institution on an inspirational note and be a beacon of light to many. The official opening of the Blue Downs Primary school was welcomed at a joyous occasion last week Wednesday. Tables were adorned in black and white, with a hint of red as guests strutted down the red carpet, serenaded by jazz music which complemented the atmosphere at the event. Teachers, important role-players, community leaders, non-teaching staff and all that formed part of the “Blue Downs family” joined in on the auspicious occasion. Present was architect of the school, Chris de Hart who played a pivotal role in the design and construction of the school. The unique styled building, with its hexagonal shape, dressed in colourful doors and walls cost just over R20 million to complete and is home to 1 076 pupils. Speaking about the process Chris said, “In the end it becomes a team effort, it doesn’t just take an architect. It takes a lot of work to satisfy.” Chris wanted the design of the school to be a child-friendly place, compared to the bland ‘stoep schools” which were constructed in earlier years. “We wanted to build a school with colour that brings life and speaks to the children,” said Chris. The Lego-like building, “Was a lot of fun designing and was at times difficult,” he said. The school’s most valuable assets, the pupils, contributed gratefully to the celebration, as their angelic voices sang the school song with pride on their faces and showed off the newly designed school uniforms. Contributing to the musical affairs of the evening, the well-known N2 Instrumental band played musical pieces, as a violinist swept the floor with melodies. Principal, Michael Samuels paid tribute to the staff of the school. “I believe that if we have great teachers, it will help learners,” said Samuels. The school has an art room, supervisors

The colourful Blue Downs Prmary school. in the classroom in case teachers are absent and a library, contributing to improving reading. “We are determined to make a difference to learners, parents, communities and teachers,” said Samuels. A visibly excited Samuels urged his staff and pupils to make the best of this new facility. “We must find ways to help each and every learner to reach their highest goals. “Nog ’n bietjie, nog ’n bietjie vorentoe,” he added. The school also showed off its new school badge, which proved to be of great symbolic meaning. It signifies the start of the pupils’ school career in Grade R, knowledge learned, the foundation laid by teachers, until the pupils’ time is over at Blue Downs primary, opening doors to knowledge and hope for their future. Head of education, Penny Vinjevold concluded. “This is not only going to be a good school, but a great school. “One of the best decisions was to build this school.” On behalf of the School Governing Body (SGB), chairperson Patrick Make whose son also attends the school said: “Our personal responsibility as parents is in developing excellence at Blue Downs. “I do hope that we are going to be a good school.”

Pupils show off the girls’ summer uniform, boys’ uniform, winter uniform and sports wear of the school. Here is, (from left) Monica Lusithi, Babalo Magenuka, Francina Maphala (all in Grade 6) and Asiphe Gqibinyanga (Gr 7).

Very long walk for the animals DESIREÉ RORKE “Not once on our long journey did we come across an aggressive animal. We’ve fallen into swamps, crawled through boomslang infested forests, walked through game reserves and over farmlands and never did one animal harm us or did we feel threatened by them. I wish the same could be said about the people we encountered along the way,” says Terrence Olivier. Terrence (53) from Amanzimtoti and Jimmy Collins, his 70-year-old intrepid walking buddy from Johannesburg, arrived in Cape Town last Wednesday after a gruelling 2 000 km walk from Amanzimtoti, to raise funds for several animal charities across the country. Together they are known as the Rainbow Warriors and literally went a long way to raise awareness for this cause. One of the 24 charities they supported is the Cape Town based Uitsig Animal Rescue Centre in Fisantekraal, with whom they met at a fundraising event on Thursday. The event, a scrumptious high-tea was hosted by Zomerlust Guest House in Paarl and attended by the centre’s volunteers, supporters and members of the community. The two intrepid warriors started their 70day journey in January when Terrence came to realise the urgency of the plight of animal charities. “Every day I hear of charities asking for financial help and the idea came to me to do this long walk. It would afford me the opportunity to raise funds and spread the message,” he says. At that that stage Jimmy, a family friend

came down from Johannesburg for a visit and decided to take up the challenge with Terrence. The two of them travelled through 70 towns and walked between 25 and 35 kilometres a day, every day. “Many days I got up and thought that I wasn’t going to make it and had to push myself, mentally and physically to get up and walk on,” says Jimmy while he shows off his walking shoes that had to be re-treaded twice along the way. One of the core ideologies of the message the warriors spread with their journey, is a simple one: cruelty against domestic animals can be prevented by education and sterilisation. Uitsig Animal Rescue Centre, currently has 500 animals living on their farm. Of these 300 dogs, 100 cats, chickens and horses, most have been abandoned or found stray and neglected in townships in and around Cape Town. “We try to find homes for these animals but many of them will not be adopted and stay with us until they die, as we by principle do not euthanise animals,” says Denay Saunders of the rescue centre while again emphasising the importance ofanimal sterilisation. “In one township we did a survey which showed that only three out of 189 of the dogs living there was sterilised. “Can you imagine how quickly the animal population in this township will grow out of control, with hundreds of these animals ending up in rescue centres like ours?” she asks. Visit their website at www.uitsig.org.za for more information.

‘Pure and textured’ album LOUISA STEYL “My music is organic and pure, it’s from the heart,” says Can Skylark. And that’s why she decided on naming her debut album, Pure. Can Skylark describes her jazzy adult contemporary music as eclectic and organic. “It’s rich in timbre and texture,”’ she says. While she hasn’t officially launched Pure yet, her songs are already playing on radio stations like KFM 94.5 and her album is for sale online. Can says it was while doing drama at Milnerton High School that she discovered her love of music. “That’s how I got my wings for music,” she says. Her parents steered her in a more lucrative direction though and she studied and worked as a graphic designer, while pursuing her music passions part time. She’s been involved in big musical-tributes shows, like Milestones to the Millennium that was on at The Roxy Review Bar recently and Rough Diamonds and Divas,

which played at the Barnyard Theatre. Eventually, she was approached by a producer, who wanted to record her own original songs. “I’ve always had a yearning to do my own stuff,” Can admits. Being approached by a big name in the industry gave her the confidence boost she needed to give it a shot. “I can’t believe the response I’ve been getting,” she says. Can started working on Pure in 2007. “It was a labour of love, really. I needed the album to speak for me.” Along with an impressive list of South African radio stations playing her work, Can’s music has also been playlisted on European stations. “It’s been doing quite well actually,” she says. She is also involved in community work and believes it’s important to give back to the people who support her. She helps with charity shows and mentoring young artists. “I believe in planting seeds,” she says. For now, Can Skylark is selling her al-

a forward-thinking nomad called Guy whose progressive view of the world rankles with Grug whose view of things is far more traditional and stuck in the past. However, things get worse for Grug when it turns out that his oldest daughter Eep and Guy are falling for one another.

I’ll huff and I’ll puff and...oops The Lilliput Children’s Theatre Company are returning to the Baxter Theatre with their most successful show to date. The Three Little Pigs is back by popular demand and will run from 2 to 4 April at 10:00 in the Main Theatre (three shows only). This delightful children’s classic takes place in Mudwop Valley, were the three little pigs leave their farm in the Karoo to build houses of their own. One wants to be a ballroom dancer, another wants to be an opera singer and the third wants to be a successful businessman. The big bad wolf pretends to be a travelling salesman in order to get into their homes but has to resort to blowing the houses down. When none of his disguises works, he tries to blow the houses up and ends up blowing himself up. This enchanting fairytale was adapted and directed by Elton John Duffy, who has been working at the Baxter since 1993. This production stars Liande Valentyn, Carmen Maarman, Karen Visser, Monique Rockman and Elton John Duffy. The duration of the show is 40 minutes and is suitable fairytale fun for the whole family. Tickets cost R45 and can be booked through Computicket. For block bookings or queries, call Elton on 083 364 8284 or 021 558 2650. Alternatively, call the Baxter Theatre on 021 685 7880.

Die o.19A-netbalspanne van Stellenberg en Brackenfell het verlede Donderdag uitstekend gevaar tydens ’n rondomtalietoernooi by die HS Brackenfell-sportdag. Die Stellies het afgereken met Bloemhof (10-7), Outeniqua (13-5) en HS Swartland (20-5), terwyl Brackenfell klaargespeel het met Outeniqua (10-9), Swartland (14-8) en Bloemhof (9-6). Die HS Bellville het Swartland (11-2) en Outeniqua (10-8) geklop, maar met 5-10 teen Bloemhof vasgeval. Milnerton en Fairmont se spanne het goeie rekenskap van hulself gegee.

Is it SuperSport Utd’s day? THOMAS CAROLUS SuperSport United are always mentioned as dark horses when the Metropolitan Premier Cup show rolls around every year, could this be their year again? They have proved to be a tough side to beat over the years, but are not good travellers. Having played in six tournaments so far they have only managed to win one. This year the Metropolitian Cup presents them with another chance to disprove this theory. Erica Park, Belhar will once again play host to the Metropolitan under-19 Premier Cup, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary. The event that takes place from 27 March to 1 April, will see 32 teams from across South Africa compete over six days, culminating in a nail-biting final on Easter Monday. This tournament has been the competition where SuperSport United have faltered most.

They play in Group F along with Vasco Da Gama, Cape Town All Stars, and Umgunglundlovu FC. This group is extremely open with Vasco Da Gama favourites to top the standings. If ever Vasco Da Gama had a chance of progressing through the tournament it will be this year. Cape Town All Stars do not appear to be the force they once were and Umgunglundlovu FC could be outgunned on the soft fields at Erica Park. Vasco Da Gama are blessed with natural talent in their midfield. With a game plan revolving around big men grinding up in conditions suited to it and a coach who knows how to preach the message, the Parow side are capable of upsetting one of the more fancied teams. Mamelodi Sundowns have contested the last three years leaving their unique mark on each of those tournaments as tough, uncompromising opposition. Sundowns’ sorties to the tournament are always sure to throw up a few surprises,

none more so than in 2009 when they beat Moroka Swallows 1-0 in the final. For teams in Pool H with Segra Football Acadamy, Old Mutual and ASD Cape Town, a place in the semi-final of this year’s event is hardly assured. It is possibly one of the weaker groups in the competition given ASD Cape Town’s poor form recently. Old Mutual Academy are the potential whipping boys of the group and should pose little threat to any of the teams, or to the score-board operators for that matter. The hardships of playing the game as amateurs will perhaps bond the side with an adhesive spirit, but the more professional approach of the opposition, Old Mutual included should see ASD Cape Town eliminated after the first phase. Bothasig can give RC Athletico FC and Transnet School of Excellence a good run, and if Chippa United, last year’s winners, don’t take them seriously they will get a surprise. One can’t imagine Chippa United, even on

an off day, losing to Bothasig and RC Athletico FC are likely to run the School boys ragged. Chippa United have very little flair but they have the brawn and experience to easily cope with a side as limited as Bothasig. Group A: Chippa United, Transnet School of Excellence, RC Athletico, Bothasig. Group B: Bayhill United, Milano United, Stars of Africa, Berea Albion. Group C: TUKS, Santos, Evertonians, Masidlale. Group D: Bidvest Wits, Swallows, Blue Down Spurs, Immortals Sports Academy. Group E: Ajax Cape Town, Harmony Academy, Atlantis Leeds, Belhar Spurs. Group F: SuperSport United, Vasco Da Gama, Cape Town AlL Stars, Umgunglundlovu FC. Group G: Kaizer Chiefs, Morgenster United, Mpumalanga Black Aces, Hanover Park. Group H: Mamelodi Sundowns, Segra Football Academy, Old Mutual Academy, ASD Cape Town.

Stokes’ sights on National Motocross title Local motocross rider Dylan Stokes, who won the 125cc class at the Cape Town National Club Championship at the Melkbos Motocross Track on 16 March, intends to make the title his own at the South African National Motocross Championship that will be held at the same venue this coming weekend. The 16-year-old Kenridge resident is putting in the work necessary to pull it off. Aside from two hours in the gym every day and rides at the track three times a week, he does muaythai, runs and cycles. On race day, he prepares by walking the track, listening to music and discussing strategy with coach Dean Hoffman. It’s clear that the preparation pays off. At the Dirt Bronco National near Krugersdorp this year, he had a good first and second heat, then suffered some bad luck when his gear shifter snapped off in the third heat – but he still managed to tie in second place for the day. Stokes, who attends Fairmont High School in Durbanville, has ambitions beyond South Africa’s borders too. “I’d love to have the opportunity to go overseas and participate in a few races. If I could do a few races in America, the UK and Europe, that would be fantastic.” “Motocross isn’t easy,” says Stokes. “It takes hard work and determination to get the results you’re looking for.” Round 2 of the 2013 National Motocross Championship will be held at the Melkbos MX track near the R27 on Saturday and Sunday 30 and 31 March. A weekend pass costs R60; children under 13 get in free. Racing starts at 10:30 on Saturday and 08:00 on Sunday.

CONSTANT PRESSURE: PAYS OFF

UWC earn their final T

he University of the Western Cape’s (FNB UWC) rugby team emphatically earned a spot in the final of the Varsity Shield tournament after they beat the University of Fort Hare (FNB UFH) 28-12, in Bellville on Monday. The visitors made their intentions clear in the third minute of the game when centre Lundi Ralarala went over with the first try of the game, which was converted by full back Khanyiso Komani to give their side an 8-0 lead. UWC applied constant pressure soon after which was rewarded when fullback Warrick Rhoda scored and a conversion by Frederick Muller made the score 8-8 after nine minutes.

Penalties An altercation on the field led to both sides losing players - UWC prop Kelvin de Bruyn and UFH No 8 Nkosikhona Nofuma. In the dying minutes of the first half, UFH fullback scored two late penalties to give his side a 12-9 edge over UWC going into the break. In the second half UWC came back guns blazing, with eightman Heinrich Marcus scoring, and Muller converting. Muller soon added another two points through a penalty to give the home side a 1812 lead. Another penalty scored by Muller gave his team space to breathe thus making the score 20-12. UWC put the final nails in the coffin of their opponents when reserve Njabulo Ndlovu went over to score his first try of the match. Mullers conversion in the 76th minute made the final score 28-12. Peter de Villiers’ side will now play the final against CUT Ixias of the Central University of Technology in Bloemfontein on Monday 1 April.

Durbies wil rugbyspiere nou bult Wanneer Durbanville-Bellville môre (Donderdag) in George in die kwarteindronde van die Gemeenskapstrofee-rugbykompetisie teen die nasionale gunsteling, College Rovers, te staan kom, is die Tygerbergers vasberade om een en almal te verras. “Die Durban-span het min swak plekke in sy mondering en is puik in die verdediging. “Daarom sal ons net op ons eie spelpatroon moet fokus en College Rovers met positiewe rugby probeer vasvat,” het Jan Loubser, die Durbies se hoofafrigter, op die vooraand van die kompetisie se uitklopronde gesê. “Die heelparty jong manne in ons span is baie opgewonde oor hierdie naweek se kragmetings. “Ons kan maar net hoop dat hulle weer hul kant sal bring – soos in die vorige paar wedstryde die geval was.” Durbanville-Bellville is nog steeds sonder ’n hele paar beseerde staatmakers, maar enkele van die manne wat in die uitdunronde knoue opgedoen het, is gelukkig weer beskikbaar. – (Sarel Burger)

UWC No 8 Njabulo Ndlovu goes over the line for his side, during their 28­12 victory over UFH in Bellville last night.
