New gym pays forward GARY VAN DYK

Celebrating the success of the project at Bishop Lavis Senior Secondary last week were, back from left, Ross Faragher­Thomas (MD Virginactive South Africa), Clayton Kordom (RCL), Kevin Sonn (principal), Nathan Prins, Tristan Sheldon, Theresa Massaglia (CSR Manager), Josh Bayliss (Group CEO of Virgin), Nadine Trout (RCL). In front from left are bodybuilders, Llewellyn Prins, Dylan Daniels and Nehemia Ander­ sen.



earners at Bishop Lavis Secondary School are showing that an investment in their futures is paying off to help them achieve positive potential in life. In May last year a joint venture between the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS), Virgin Active South Africa and the Greensmile Foundation facilitated the opening of a fully-equipped gym at the school. Officially opened by Dr Ivan Meyer, MEC for Sport, the project is part of Virgin Active’s Youth Development Strategy, known as Future Crew. Last week they were excited to welcome some special visitors to their school to show off how they were achieving the objectives of the project. Josh Bayliss, CEO of the Virgin Group and Nick Fox, Director of External Relations at Virgin Management, both passionate about corporate social investment, were in South Africa this week and will visit the school to present them with donations of sports equipment. This is a project that aims to help transform communities, involve learners in exercise, help them learn skills and be part of a mentoring programme headed by qualified sports and life skills coaches. It addresses three issues, highlighting sport as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle; helping to combat increasing levels of obesity and addressing the growing rate of unemployment among the South African youth. Speaking at the event principal Kevin Sonn thanked the supporters and sponsors pointing out how it was already making a difference, beyond sport. “Recent statistics are great indicators that the Future Crew project is working and having a positive impact on the learners,” he said.


“The matric exemption pass increased from from 63.8% to 78% (15.8% up), Grade 11’s had a 100% pass rate, grade 10’s a 82% pass rate, and most importantly the drop out rate decreased. “The community has taken note of these changes and now we have more learners are wanting to come to a Bishop Lavis, a “winning school” with the intake in Grade 8 in-

creasing to 286 from 256.” Apart from Bishop Lavis Future Crew has also been implemented at Lavender Hill Secondary School and Hawston Secondary School, all located within communities, where gangsterism and drug abuse is a major issue. At this event the learners proudly showed how the project was making a difference in

their lives with performances from their choir, a dance crew strutted their stuff, and bodybuilders showed-off the muscle after working out in the gym. A special visitor was professional skateboarder Jean-Marc Johannes who gave them a motivational speech about reaching for their dreams, and gave them a special demonstration of his skills.

Up for grabs this week: Three R500 Wellness Warehouse vouchers, tickets to the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at Wild Clover, tickets to Cape Getaway Show, and tickets to ATKV­Oesfees,

Cape Town International Airport is on a mission to take education to new highs at eight schools in the Peninsula. This year, eight schools in the airport’s vicinity benefited from a R192 200 donation with each school receiving an interactive whiteboard which can be used to access the internet while teaching. In the past three years, 21 schools have benefited with boards worth over half a million rand. The airport worked closely with the Western Cape Education Foundation who also provided the criteria for selecting the schools. One of the criteria was the matric pass rate for 2013 and the schools are Ravensmead

High School with a 97% pass rate, Goodwood College (96.4% pass rate), Excelsior High in Belhar (96% rate), Hindle High in Delft (95.8% pass rate), Elsies River High (94.2% pass rate), Perseverance High in Belhar (87% pass rate), Inkwekwezi High in Du Noon (84.5% pass rate) and Voorbrug High in Delft (80% pass rate)

Top performers The airport has once again embarked on its school up-liftment project “Improving Education through Interactive Technology”. In February 2014, Cape Town International Airport embarked on a schools drive to identify top performing schools in the com-

munities around the airport. “Three of the schools were selected not only for their pass rate but because they had a significant pass rate increase in the 2013 matric results. “As recognition, the airport donated interactive white boards and other teaching software to each of the schools,” said Deidre Davids, Communications Manager at Cape Town International Airport. “Our business is not only about airports, it’s about giving back to our communities. So, as an airport operator, contributing toward the development and sustainability of our communities is very important and education is the foundation for the development of any community,” she concluded.

On the left is the eyesore that was the derelict Belhar Shopping complex on the corner of Chestnut and Gousblom roads, shortly before demolition. The building was vandalised and constituted a health and safety risk. It had been accessed via the roof where beams had been removed causing the roof to collapse. This

constituted imminent danger to children and adults who passed the building on a daily basis. Residents have welcomed the demolition of the building after negotiations between the Western Cape govern­ ment and the City of Cape Town. The picture on the right shows the demolition site.

Youths scared ‘straight’ GARY VAN DYK @gvdcapejazz

Some youngsters from Bellville South got a taste of life behind bars last week, and they don’t like what they’ve seen. They were partt of the group that was taken to Goodwood Prison last week by Former Tik Addicts Reach Out (FTARO) who have been doing these tours for youth at risk since 2011. The organisation’s Dhakir Christians pointed out that the project targets youth who are at risk and it has been very successful over the years. “Our success hinges on the fact that they get the chance to have open candid discussions with wardens and inmates who can deter youth from the journey to jail through their bad behaviour. “Last week we did the tour in collaboration with the local ward councillor Mercia

Kleinsmith, the local police and the Community Police Forum.” Christians, who is also Project Director of Books Not Prison Bars, added that this is a great program to deter children from a life of crime. “The effect it has on the children really scares them straight.”

Positive results Kleinsmith also added why she as a ward councillor support this initiative. “We’ve had some positive results over the past few years and seen some positive changes,” she said. “Many of them even return to school to complete their education.” Christians also points out that shock tactics works. “We realised that part of being young is the feeling of immortality and general belief, ‘It won’t happen to me’.

“I must say that after being on this tour, the fear of landing up in prison is really the only thing that motivates a kid from embarking on a life of crime.” During the visit the children are not only exposed to the prison environment, but also receive a motivational lecture with topics like values, morals, discipline, principles, responsibility, lifeskills, vision and planning their lives on a positive path. Kleinsmith also explained that irrespective of some criticism, this program has achieved significant results. “We do not expect to reform and save all the youth at once, but to save two out of ten youths is a bonus. Christians concluded by thanking the members of the community who make these visits possible. “We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to Sharon Adriaanse and family as well as Mosnul Islam and family.”

Citizen Journalist blog

Personal safety or self-defence? Don’t get me wrong. I fully believe the physical side is crucial and I recommend that any person in South Africa become skilled in it (more on this in later articles). However, it’s not wise to think that physical skills alone will keep you safe. By definition physical self-defence skills are for when things get physical. However, the physical side to an attack or to crime is only one part in the development, or process, of the crime. There are many points in the development of the crime in which you can subvert or discourage the criminal. We will delve into this process along which crime develops next week. For this week I want us to expand our thinking on personal safety.

It’s not all physical! “There is a big difference between self-defence and personal safety. Self-defence is predicated on the fact that you are in a very bad place to begin with. Things have already gone to hell in a hand basket. As such, self-defence is making sure the situation doesn’t get any worse – it is damage control, pure and simple. However, no damage control is ever as good as preventing the problem in the first place. That’s personal safety.” -Marc MacYoung Contrary to popular belief the willingness and ability to defend oneself physically is by no means the only skill necessary for personal safety. Personal safety is a holistic discipline which includes much more than the willingness and ability to defend oneself on a physical level.

Holistic personal safety Spider Web: A good analogy to think about personal safety is that of a spider web. A spider web is strong because it is woven of many strands of strong fibre. The stronger the individual fibres, and the more strands there are, the stronger the web is. In terms of your own personal safety you want to start

to think in terms of these strands. You want to understand what the different strands are, how to make them strong and then how to weave them into your own personal-safety web. It is into this web that one has to add the the strand of physical self-defence skills. Personal safety is a web of different strands woven together. Learn about them, make them strong and weave them into your life.The more proficient you become in all of these strands the more difficult a target you become. The old self-defence adage rings true: If you don’t want to be an easy victim become a hard target. Always remember most criminals are very intent on keeping themselves safe and free from harm. To truly fight back against crime we need to be hard targets and we need to help those around us to become hard targets as well. V Read the full blog at­ list.

A house in Bonteheuwel will become more than just a home when some special people get going with Extreme Makeover – Bonteheuwel Edition. Flame of Hope is a non-profit organisation that recruits volunteers to help do maintenance work at orphanages, homes of safety, old-age homes, children homes and underprivileged houses in the community. Terrence Lackay is one of the organizers of the project and says that they are doing it in collaboration with the group, Proudly Bonteheuwel. “We approached Proudly Bonteheuwel because of their successful “Nite Market” event of the 2013 Christmas period,” he says. “The name Proudly Bonteheuwel speaks volume and our mission is for the people to unite as a community. “I come from Bonteheuwel and the only thing people can talk about the area at the moment is the violence that is happening there. “People are being shot on a daily basis but I believe that if the community can find a way to do something out of the ordinary together...they will in turn work as a unit to make their area a better place.” Terrence explains that the theme for this project is “You-Me-Together-We can be the difference others are praying for”. “This project will be part of Flame of Hope’s community projects,” he says.

Unique chance for makeover

Nominate “The community nominate houses they feel could benefit from a makeover and they do their nominations via Flame of Hope or Proudly Bonteheuwel. “This nomination process will end at midnight on 1 May. Then the house owner and the person who nominated them will be interviewed to make sure they meet the criteria of the makeover. The criteria are that it is not a rented house and that the owner occupies the house. “The household income must be less than R5000 per month and it should be drug free or persons involved in a drug rehabilitation program for more than 3 months. “The house must also not be used to do any business of any kind and not to be sold or rented out within 24 months of the makeover.” After the interview process the successful nominations will go into a draw on the 31 May at the Apricot Place Old-age Home event where the ward councilor will draw the names three finalists. The community can then play their part by voting for their favorite at an event that will be held on 14 June at seniors home to decide who the beneficiary of the makeover will be.Full details of the project will also be released then but people or companies who feel they can play a part in this project can contact the group in the meantime.

Women carry on with work at centre GARY VAN DYK @gvdcapejazz

A raging fire could not extinguish the “flame for service”of the community at the Women in Leadership organisation in Elsies River. Based at the Adult Education Training Centre, 2013 was a very challenging year for them with three of their classes destroyed in a fire with all their admin, sewing equipment and materials destroyed, but they were not prepared to give up. “It was a terrible blow to us,” says chairperson Matilda Vantura. “But there was no way were were going to give up. We remain an organization that relies on volunteers, sponsors and funding to sustain our projects and there are people who believe we are making a difference in the lives of the unemployed by giving them a skill. “Some donated machines had us continuing even though we could not take on as many students as we wanted to, but we continued, even doing some small commissions for local manufacturers,” she said. Now with the new year in full swing they’re planning bigger things for this year.

“We are starting our sewing classes again and want people to sign up for these exciting new classes,” she said. “Classes will be facilitated by Clotex where women will be trained to design, draw, cut and sew their own garments.” Matilda also pointed out that their food garden was also affected by the fire. “The irrigation system was damaged and the well pump stopped working, but the vegetables and herbs were hand watered and continued to be cared for. “Our spring harvest yielded tomatoes, butternut, spinach, beetroot, cauliflower, chillies and herbs. “Some of the vegetables were sold to teachers at the school and the money used for transporting food to the old age home. “We also sold hampers, pickled onions, vegetable atchar and paid gardeners with the profit we made. “Our volunteer gardener is currently weeding and preparing soil for our winter crops so our bakery facility can become a temporary soup kitchen,” she said. The bakery is also a sore point for the organisation, because it was always a hit with residents in the area and the learners at the Adult Education Centre who loved the tasty

treats that were sold. “Our bakery is closed due to lack of funds to pay the chef because all the electrical wiring was stolen during vandalism in February,” she said. “Everything is in working order but we need help with the wiring and maybe there is a retired chef out there who wants to volunteer to help us.”

Matilda also thanked the liked of Grand West, Old Mutual, Tank Clinic, Wheat Trust, Department of Social Development, Cape Gate, Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry, Western Cape Agriculture, and the City of Cape Town who had supported them over the past five years.

Grave concerns over ‘Die Bult’ GARY VAN DYK @gvdcapejazz


elhar wants some action with regard to Die Bult, the hill that grew from a waste disposal site into a hotspot for criminal activities in the area. The neighbourhood watch in Extension 6 have been monitoring the situation in this area and calling on authorities to remedy the situation. Augustin Bell from the NHW in the area says that they have written to the council about this problem as well as some othermatters that needed to be addressed in the area, but one of the major problems was Die Bult. “The specific problem is that it has become a haven for all types of illegal activities,” he says. “There’s dogfights, it’s a drug spot, as well as a hiding place for guns and shooters. “What the community has been crying out for years is that ‘the bult’ must be removed completely and recreational facilities like a tennis court and swimming pool be built there. “But we also know that this can’t happen overnight that’s why we asked for it to be cleaned, fenced and to be patrolled regularly by the police”.

Whose Bult is it anyway? Bell also explained that when the community started raising this issue they where given the run around because suddenly the Bult belonged to nobody. “We were first told that it belongs to the University of the Western Cape, then it was the police and now finally (it belongs to) the City of Cape Town, but they’re still trying to figure out which department must actually take responsibility for the ground.” Other matters that they raised in their letter of concerns to the council was relating to traffic in the area where timing of traffic lights at the intersection of the Stellenbosch Arterial Road and Symphony Way was causing the area to become a smash and grab hotspot. Another matter of concern that came up

"Die Bult" in Belhar is an area of grave concern for residents, who now want action to be taken against criminal activities taking place there. PHOTO: GARY VAN DYK

was the removal of the blue rubbish bags immediately after the green bins or the street is cleaned. “Because the environment is one of the pillars of crime prevention we as a NHW are continually fighting against dumping and the creation of dumping sites in our area,” continued Bell. “The blue bags laying on street corners for weeks on end is creating mini dumpsites and we would like the city to please encourage the contractors to remove the bags on the same day.”

Investigated Local ward councillor, and chairman of Sub-council 6, Desmond Jafta, has responded to these concerns and said that the problems regarding The Bult are under investigation. “Any project needs investigation, planning, costing and then to be implemented,” he said. “This is the first time that I work on The Bult and I have to gain more information,”

City needs help with invasive wasps

Feet of flame Nick Floorkiller Matthee, local freestyle and hip hop dance entertainer will be competing in the second 3D International Dance Competition on Friday 28 March. He will also be entering the super Freestyle Hip Hop dance League Competitions this year. Nick is now starting his new project, freestyle dance instinct where he gives free training and choreography to young teens in Delft, Belhar and Elsies River. Nick also known as the king of freestyle to dancers is also involved in school musical concerts and supports local fundraisers. He will also be hosting his own dance competition in Belhar in June themed, The Feet of Flames dance competition. Dancers who would like to enter can contact 076 607 2638.

Two highly invasive wasp species are expanding their range throughout Cape Town and the Western Cape. and the city is calling on the public to help identify and report new colonies. The European paper wasp (Polistes dominula) and the German wasp or yellow-jacket (Vespula germanica) have found the Cape Metro and the Boland to be an ideal habitat suited for their expansion. If left uncontrolled, they may spread to the majority of towns in the Western Cape and other provinces where the climate is even more suited to their requirements. Both species are listed as invasive species in the National Environmental Management Biodiversity Act (NEMBA). “These species require control by means of an invasive species management programme,” says Louise Stafford, invasive species coordinator of the City of Cape Town. “According to international cases of invasion involving both species, these insects have the potential to create problems ranging from being a nuisance to serious economic impacts in the wine, deciduous fruit and beekeeping industries,” she says.

Aggressive “The German wasp in particular is aggressive and there are several reported cases of them stinging workers harvesting grapes and other fruits. They can present a hazard to residents enjoying the outdoors who may unintentionally disturb a colony. These wasps also feed on mature grapes in the late summer months and cause extensive damage to vineyards. They are also known to attack and kill honeybees and infiltrate bee hives, which is detrimental to the honey industry.” Research is currently being implemented

by the South African National Biodiversity Institute’s (SANBI) Invasive Species Programme, which is funded by the Department of Environmental Affairs. They are trying to determine the rate of expansion and document new colonies to find solutions to control the spread of both invasive insect species. The research programme, managed by a consortium of researchers, is now in its second phase and will move to experimental trials on the effectiveness of local eradication of both species. The city and its partners are therefore calling on the public to assist in documenting new colonies by reporting their localities online so that the appropriate measures can be taken to control these invaders.

Areas The European paper wasp is a medium-sized wasp (20 mm to 35mm) with wavy yellow and black markings on the abdomen and orange antennae. Areas found include: Brackenfell, Kraaifontein, Kuils River, Bellville and Durbanville. The German wasp is also a medium-sized wasp (15 mm to 40mm) with yellow and black markings on the abdomen but it has black antennae. A record of 750 000 wasps was recorded on a farm in Somerset West in 2002. The German wasp is aggressive, especially if the nest or surrounding areas are disturbed. Areas found includes Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Grabouw, Franschhoek, Paarl and Wellington.

Skilder soek idees om Anene te eer Die skilder Jeanne Hugo het ’n olieskildery gemaak van Anene Booysen, die 17-jarige van Bredasdorp wat verlede jaar wreed verkrag en vermoor is. Wat Hugo se skildery, getiteld ID9510300482089 uniek maak, is dat dit geskilder is van die enigste foto wat ooit van Anene bestaan het – die een in Anene se identiteitsdokument. Hugo skryf in ’n brief aan TygerBurger dat lesers met idees vorendag kan kom oor hoe om die nagedagtenis van Anene, en veral haar vegtersgees, te eer, deur vir dié skildery ’n permanente tuiste te help soek. Sy is bereid om die skildery “vir enige bak plan” te skenk. “In ’n selfportret-obsessiewe beskawing was daar nie één ander visuele dokumentering van haar bestaan nie. Sy was ’n ‘spook’,” sê Hugo. “Die skildery poog om haar legende vas te vang. Haar wange, wimpers en lippe is liggies met grimering gebalsem – ’n bewys dat sy met liefde én hartseer deur sommiges onthou sal word.” Jeanne sê die kunswerk is oorspronkilik vir ’n kompetisie in 2013 geskep, maar dit was toe “onsuksesvol geag”. Nou wil sy net graag hê dat dit dien om Anene se nagedagtenis te eer. Sy meen een idee sou wees om ’n fontein in Bredasdorp te bou, omring deur ’n tuintjie.

Dié skildery van Anene Booysen is te sien by die ArtB­galery by die Belville­biblioteek. “Kom ons poog om vir ander jong kinders te wys dat ons omgee; dat hulle meisiewees kosbaar is. As Anene so hard kon baklei, kan ons onsself uitdaag om haar voorbeeld te volg?” Die skildery word tans, tesame met die werke van ander bekende kunstenaars, in die ArtB-galery van die Bellville-bibilioteek uitgestal tot 21 Maart.

Nuwe aanlyn advertensieslenter MICHELLE LINNERT @linnertmb

Die Bellville-polisie het die afgelope weke vier gevalle gehad waar ’n nuwe slenter om mense te beroof, op die gewilde aanlynadvertensieplatvorms Gumtree en OLX gebruik word. “Ons het drie gevalle van Gumtree en een van OLX hanteer waardeur mense wat besittings adverteer, en dan reëlings tref om voornemende kopers te ontmoet, van hul besittings beroof is,” het kapt. Fienie Nimb, segsvrou van die Bellville-polisie, gesê. “In die afgelope twee weke (tot verlede Woensdag), het ons dié vier gevalle gehad waar die modus operandi elke keer dieselfde was.” Sy sê die gesteelde goedere sluit in ’n voertuig, platskerm-televisiestel en selfone, en die verdagtes is mans wat reël om die verkopers in die stadskern te ontmoet. “Wanneer hulle dan die transaksie moet doen, word vuurwapens uitgehaal en hulle beroof. Dis definitief ’n groep. Die verkopers is baie geskok.” Nimb sê hulle weet nie waar dié nuwe misdaadtendens vandaan kom nie, maar die voorvalle het op verskillende dae gebeur. Sy het lesers gemaan om bedag te wees op die slenter.

Gee jou kind geskenk van boekliefde Om ’n liefde vir boeke van jongs af by jou kind te kweek, gaan uiteindelik een van die grootste geskenke wees wat hy van jou ontvang. Dié stelling sal alle opvoedkundiges onderskryf. En met die Nasionale Biblioteekweek (17 tot 22 Maart) om die draai, is daar nie ’n beter tyd om hiermee te begin nie. Al die biblioteke in die noordelike voorstede bied dan spesiale sessies vir die jonges aan. Benut dit! In ’n tyd waar die TV, rolprente, videoen rekenaarspeletjies die verbeelding van kinders aangryp, kom die tradisionele boek sleg tweede. Die tragiese gevolg daarvan is dat die leesvaardigheid van ’n hele nuwe geslag ten gronde gaan. Saam met ’n onderontwikkelde leesvermoë kom natuurlik ’n swak leervermoë, wat uiteindelik ’n groot en negatiewe impak op skoliere en studente se akademiese prestasies het. En ongelukkig lê die probleem nie altyd by die skole nie. Groter klassse maak dit al hoe moeiliker vir onderwysers om regtig aan dié vaardigheid van kinders te slyp. Daarom is dit so belangrik om in die beginfase van die leesproses die basiese vaardighede vas te lê. Dit is iets wat net kan gebeur as kinders gereeld blootstelling aan boeke kry. Boeke is duur, sal baie ouers se verweer wees. Wel waar, maar daarom is daar biblioteke om dié liefde by die volgende geslag besluitnemers te kweek. Want sonder ’n leesvermoë, gaan hulle eendag beswaarlik besluite kan neem.

Time to become Microchip can help self­sufficient? your pets No electricity for several hours or longer could lead to no water (water is pumped using electricity) and no petrol and diesel (petrol and diesel are pumped using electricity and are made using electricity). This will lead to hunger. Then violence. Isn’t it about time that people took responsibility for their own electricity, water, food, sewerage provision, just like our grandparents used to do? My grandmother lived in Bantry Bay when it wasn’t so expensive as today. She collected rain water. She had a septic tank and French drain for sewerage. She had hardly any waste because nappies and all that kind of stuff was recycled. And she had hardly any plugs in the house. Things got done. Cheaply. Then along came the government and said they could do all these things for her cheaper. And they did for about 40 years, but once they had us all by the short and curlies, the government became teh biggest business and they started dramatically raising prices. And because they are the government, Competition Law doesn’t apply to them. In the Cape Town, we have the Bus Rapid Transit, but taxis and private bus companies can’t compete along these routes. Before Eskom there were many producers of electricity in South Africa, until the 1920’s. We have just forgotten these facts. But 40 years in the desert is a long time and we have forgotten that we used to make things ourselves. We depended on ourselves and our neighbours. We shared. We need to do this again. DAVID LIPSCHITZ Milnerton

It is with great sadness that I write this letter. To the owner of a small black and tan dog, with a greying muzzle: your dog did not return home to you (in or from) Morgenster Heights on Saturday. If there had been a microchip to read your details, you could have spent your dog’s last few minutes alive together. To all (pet) owners, please microchip (your pets). MARGARET ROSE Email

Land Rover driver disrespects all Today, at about 14:30, I entered the parking area of Palmgrove Centre in Durbanville, from the garage ramp. The flow of traffic was blocked by a gold Land Rover, double parked in front of a loading zone and trolley off-ramp at the entrance of the centre. Even after a gentle intervention from the security guard and (other) drivers’ impatient hooting, the man behind the steering wheel did not budge. Finally, when I managed to pass him, I showed him my displeasure by hooting. He threw me a rude sign in full view of children and passersby. When I approached him about his blatant rudeness and clear disrespect, he gave me a lame lie. His clearly physically able wife hopped into the car with her shopping. Sir, you know who you are, please do not call yourself South African because you stand against everything we are striving for. You are disrespectful to women, children and disabled people. Shame on you! L. JACOBS Email

Old scam still doing the rounds On Tuesday 4 March at 10:30, I received a call on my landline from a woman with an Indian accent. She said she was from “Windows Maintenance” and could assist me with “malicious downloading” they noticed on my computer. I insisted to know who I was speaking to, to which she repeated “Widows Maintenance”. She ordered me to go to my computer so she could assist me. I repeated my question, to which she asked if I understood English. I replied that her English wasn’t easy to understand and I also didn’t understand computer language, as I didn’t own a computer. She then immediately and abruptly ended the call, much to my delight. ETNA Durbanville

Let the laws stop the rot Why are bylaws not being forcefully implemented in Goodwood? It seems as if those who are supposed to enforce the law are afraid to implement the laws, do not know what the law entails or are just not bothered to do the job properly. Why must we read in the newspaper that Vasco station is a major drug dealing area? It is a well-known fact that a certain residence in Riebeek Street actually a “sleep-and-go” business. The owner says it is his family living there. We all know it’s not true. If you do not do something to stop this, it will soon be out of control and the rot will really take hold. RODGER Email

Organisers get ready to release the white balloons for peace to signal the start of the march through the streets of Bonteheu­ wel.

The Bonteheuwel Joint Peace Forum took to the streets on Sunday to march againt the crime and gangterism taking over their streets. There was good support from all organisations involved and they ended at teh police station where a memorandum of demands against crime was handed over to the station commander. This group was ready for the streets with their protest placards. PHOTOS: GARY VAN

These two were serious about their message for peace to the world.


Prayer for peace

The Calvary Hope Ministries hosted a prayer service for peace at The Hague Recreational Centre in Delft on Sunday. Guest speakers and representatives of various churches in the area joined in the activities to call for peace from the violence and gangsterism in the community. The group marched from the police station before the start of the service. PHOTOS: GARY VAN DYK

Top: The drill squad from Dennegeur Primary in Strandfontein led the march through the streets of Delft before the service and entertained the crowd with their slick routines before the start of the service. Pastor Oscar Bougaardt, organiser of the serivce, gets the crowd into the mood to pray for peace at the start of the service in Delft.

Bank supports soccer THOMAS CAROLUS


he coveted Barclays Premier League Trophy was the centre of attention in Khayelitsha’s Football for Hope Centre, as Barclays reaffirmed its financial commitment to the Grassroot Soccer South Africa Coach Development Programme run in conjunction with Barclays Spaces for Sports. The program, hosted for Barclays by Grassroots Soccer, goes far beyond the fields

of football. Over 190 GRS coaches between the ages of 18 and 30, who worked with over 39 000 youth in their communities in 2013, have been empowered through training focused on employ ability and financial literacy skills over the past year. The aim of the project is to encourage all people to live healthy and productive lives through the medium of sport and to embody good citizenship in their respective communities. The Grassroot Soccer development course was enhanced by additional hands-on expe-

Top karate tourney goes big STEHAN SCHOEMAN In an attempt to get Kyokushin karate as an official Olympic sport, the various organisations are joining forces to make this dream a reality. As a result of this, the Western Province Kyokushin-kan Championships will be the biggest in its history. The Bellville-campus of Pentech will host this event with clubs from across the peninsula including Bellville, Kuils River, Blackheath, Brackenfell, Durbanville, Panorama, Bothasig, Sea Point, Mithell’s Plain and Elsies River taking part. “This is very exciting and to see everyone pulling together is really satisfying. It will be our biggest provincial championships to date. “We are expecting about 300 karatekas to compete that includes several junior South African champions that with a lot of up and

coming talent that will want to show their class against these champions,” says the chairman of Kyokushin-kan Africa, Shihan Hennie Bosman. Charl Marais, David Augustyn, Jean-Reece Brooks, Michelle Joubert, Corne Vorster, Matthew Scott, Carel von Maltitz and Jaydon Davies are some of the junior national champions that will compete. Several divisions including u.7, u.9, u-11, u-13, u-15 and u-14 for both boys and girls as well as senior divisions. At the end of it all a training squad will be selected to prepare for the World Junior Kyokushin championships at the end of the year in Russia.A Western Province team will also be selected to compete in die South African championships to be held in Johannesburg in August. Spectator fees will be R30 for adults and R10 for children.Email or phone 021 913 1600 for more information.

rience as well as offering mentoring and voluntary apprenticeships. Khayelitsha has been one of the successful areas of the program, with 35 of the 190 coach intake over the past year, hailing from this community in the Western Cape. Bafana Bafana legend that played for Bolton Wanderers and Charlton Athletic during his playing career in the Barclays Premier League, Mark Fish, accompanied the Barclays Premier League trophy to inspire those present. Said Fish; “Good citizenship

should be part of everyday life ans it is key that people understand the importance of life skills such as entrepreneurship and financial literacy. Even footballers can’t play football forever, and it is crucial to have some sort of business acumen to fall back on when one’s playing days are over. Barclays needs to be commended for taking this empowering step towards creating a brighter future and for striving to make a difference in communities through this program.”

Harde werk voor vir T’bergers SAREL BURGER Durbanville, Bellville en die Universiteit van Wes-Kaapland het ná die afgelope naweek al drie eerstebeurt-agterstande om uit te wis in hul onderskeie krieketwedstryde in die WP se eerste liga. Die wisselvallige Bellville (98) het Victoria op 85/8 teen die toue gehad, maar toe toegelaat dat die tuisspan uiteindelik 170 lopies opstapel. William Hantam (38), Malcolm Feldman (5/47) en Louis Delport (4/63) het die beste vir Bellville vertoon. Vir Durbanville (220), in sy wedstryd teen Rondebosch (235), het Jean Strydom (38) en Kuda Sumanderu (4/66) die toon aangegee in ’n goeie spanpoging. UWK (226/9) het ’n stywe bult om te klim teen WP-klub (312/7 gesl.) maar

Sharn Gomes (84) en Mujahid Behardien (49) kan tevrede voel met hul derdepaaltjie-vennootskap van 103 lopies. Edgemead (257/5 gesl.) daarenteen is op pad na ’n oorwinning oor Tygerberg-klub (113 en 12/1 ) nadat Christiaan Mocke (85*), Jackie Strauss (52), Christo Jooste (50*), Solly Peters (4/50) en Jonathan Schwerin (3/15) almal goed gevaar het. Milnerton (124) trek aan die agterste ent teen Avendale (225) ondanks stewige bydraes deur Sean Roach (6/58) en Ryan Karsten (39). Maar Noordelikes-Goodwood (301/5 gesl.) is goed geplaas om Wynberg (104 en 20/2) ’n uitklophou toe te dien. Jahne Rudman (135), Jason Underwood (100*) en Rejean Botes (4/20) het die Goodwoodmanne in ’n byna onaanvegbare posisie geplaas.
