) Natuurlike habitat word verwoes

Gifslange in buurte JANA BEKKER

Giftige slange wat deesdae in woongebiede rondseil is die gevolg van behuisingsontwikkelings wat die afgelope jare slange se natuurlike habitat verwoes het. Só sê Bellville-slangredder Shaun MacLeod, nadat ’n Kaapse kobra onlangs by ’n huis in De Bron opgemerk is. Chantél Snyman en Jean Schoe-

man het een aand om 18:00 dié slang op hul stoep gesien. “Die slang was ongeveer 1,4 meter lank en het rustig heen en weer oor die stoep en in die tuin beweeg en uiteindelik homself in ’n klein boompie opgekrul,” sê Chantél. Hulle het drie slangkenners gebel, maar kon niemand in die hande kry nie. Teen sonsondergang kon hulle nie meer die slang sien nie en het hom ook nie daarna weer gesien nie. ’n Dag later het ’n kenner hul huis

besoek om te kyk of daar dalk broeigebiede in hulle tuin was, maar dié moontlikheid is uitgesluit. “Die slang het moontlik net deur ons tuin beweeg op pad iewers heen,” sê Chantél. Sy het ’n foto geneem van die slang, waarop Shaun sê dit is duidelik aan die manier waarop die slang aan die tak klou, dat dit vreesbevange is. Shaun sê die mens is te blameer vir slange wat deesdae in woongebiede inbeweeg, aangesien dié rep-

tiele se natuurlike habitat uitgewis word deur behuisingsontwikkelings. Hy sê mense lok deur hul troeteldiere se kosbakke met kos in, rotte en muise na hul erwe en op dié manier ook onvermydelik slange. Volgens Shaun was die oproepe wat hy 20 jaar gelede ontvang het, vir molslange, maar weens ontwikkelings kom giftige slange nou in woongebiede voor. “Slange lewe in die veld en doen enigiets om konfrontasie met die mens te vermy,” sê hy. Shaun sê

omdat slange se natuurlike habitat uitgeroei word, gebeur dit dat slange soms in ’n pad afseil. “Sodra ’n slang egter gesien word, doen mense wat hulle kan om die slang dood te slaan,” sê hy. Hy sê geen slang sal ’n mens eerste aanval nie. “Slange sal hulself teen ’n mens beskerm, maar sal nooit eerste aanval nie.” Shaun sê wanneer ’n Kaapse kobra verras word, sal die slang sy kop oplig en lug deur sy neus blaas. .

. Van bladsy 1. “Dít dien as waarskuwing vir ’n mens. As ’n persoon dié waarskuwing ignoreer sal die slang maak asof hy pik, maar steeds nie pik nie (mock strike) volgens Shaun. ’n Droë pik, wanneer hy nie gif vrystel nie, kan plaasvind in ’n poging om die persoon te waarsku om weg te kom. “Dit is ’n mite dat slange uit hul habitat sal uitkom om mense te pik,” sê Shaun. Hy raai mense aan om wanneer hulle ’n slang in hul tuine gewaar, dadelik ’n slangkenner te bel, maar terselfdertyd moet iemand ’n oog op die slang hou sodat dit gevang kan word. Shaun sê dié tyd van die jaar jag slange vir hul laaste maaltye voor hulle hiberneer. Hy sê indien slange wel opgemerk word, sal dit tussen 08:00 en 10:00 soggens en tussen 16:00 en 18:00 smiddae wees. “Om ’n slang dood te slaan, is ’n voorval van wreedheid teenoor diere. As jy dit aan ’n hond of kat sou doen, sou dit groot ontsteltenis veroorsaak, maar dit is dieselfde as jy dit aan ’n slang doen,” sê hy. Bel Shaun by 082 532 5033.

Dit was so hittete... MARANA BRAND VAN HULSTEYN

’n Skroef van 4 cm lank is moontlik al wat Maandagoggend omstreeks 02:30 tussen die koeëlpunt van ’n AK47 en Coenraad Groenewald se lewe gestaan het. “Vanaand gaan ek eers lánk bid, en dan iets drink,” het ’n moeë Coenraad, eienaar van die De Tyger Kwik Spar in Frans Conradie, waar die Absa-kitsbank Maandagoggend deur ’n bom verwoes is, aan TygerBurger gesê. Hy en sy skoonseun Luke Geldenhuys, bestuurder van die Kwik Spar, het ter nouernood aan die dood ontkom toe hulle tydens die bomaanval by die Spar opgedaag en die aanvallers op hulle losgebrand het. Hulle het van die aanval te hore gekom toe een van hul sekuriteitswagte Frincis Nkoy, vir Coenraad gebel het van onder die voertuig waar hy geskuil het. Sy “broer”, Declau Mpukuta, is in daardie stadium met die loop van ’n AK47 teen sy nek, gedwing om te lê en sy oë toe te hou. Frincis was aan die agterkant van die gebou besig om die terrein te bewaak, terwyl Declau aan die voorkant naby die Tygerbergdierehospitaal gesit het. Declau het gesien hoe ’n blou BMW-driereeks met gerookte ruite twee maal stadig in Frans Conradie verby die winkel ry. Dit moes vir hulle gelyk het of daar niemand by die winkel is nie. Die volgende oomblik het die kar voor die winkel gestop, maar die ligte het op Declau geval en een van hulle het uitgespring en hom platgedruk. Sy selfoon is ook onmiddellik buite aksie gestel, het Declau gesê. “Maar ek het gesien my broer het gesien en toe onder ’n Golf weggekruip. Gelukkig het ek voorheen al twee keer ’n vuurwapen teen my nek gehad in die Kongo. Ek kon maklik stil lê.” Dis toe dat Frincis vir Coenraad, wat naby die winkel bly, bel. “Ons het afgejaag terwyl Luke die polisie bel. Toe hoor ons ’n helse slag. Toe sê Luke: ‘Pa, daar gaan die ATM’,” het Coenraad vertel. Daar was oral rook en stof en skrapnel en hulle kon nie mooi sien toe hulle die parkeerplek voor die winkel binnery nie. Toe hulle langs die BMW beland en in daardie breukdeel van ’n sekonde deur die oop bestuurdersvenster sien hoe almal in die voertuig platval, het hulle besef hierdie is nie gewone inbrekers nie. Hulle het onmiddellik versnel, maar die man wat Declau aangehou en op daardie oomblik op die hoek van die win-

Die adrenalien het gepomp. Dit het geklink of ek in ’n movie is. Ek het agtergekom ek voel nog okay. Ons het by die agterkant van die parkeerarea uitgery. Die mans het weggejaag. Toe ons omdraai en weer voor die winkel stop, was die polisie langs ons,” het Luke vertel. Eers het hulle gedink daar was meer skote, want een koeëlpunt wat deur gepantserde metaal kan dring, is by die agterkant van die bakkie in – reg in lyn met Coenraad, wat bestuur het – maar het hom nie bereik nie. Nog ’n gat lyk of ’n koeël Luke tussen die blaaie moes tref – maar dit het nie. Uiteindelik is vasgestel dat daar twee skote was: Een skoot was mis. Net een was deur die bakkie. Een koeëlpunt het ’n skroefie aan die agterkant van die bakkie 100% in die middel getref, wat die punt verdeel het. Die een deel het agter Luke opgeslaan en die ander het aan die kant van die bakkie uitgekom Niemand is beseer nie. Die man met die AK47 het nog ’n skoot geskiet op ’n polisieman wat in ’n straat ondertoe bly en met ’n flits na die toneel gekom

het ná hy die slag gehoor het. Dit was mis. Mense wat in die omgewing bly, het ook die harde slag gehoor, het Ken Botes, wat oorkant die straat in Rickettsstraat bly, gesê. Toe hy na die toneel gestap het, het stukke metaal, plastiek en glas die hele pad vol gelê. Danksy Francis en Declau, kon die polisie vinnig op die voorval reageer en ’n stap nader kom om die mans wat die Stad sedert einde Januarie met tien OTM-aanvalle geteister het, vas te trek. By minstens drie van dié aanvalle het getuies gesien dat ’n donkerkleurige BMW met gerookte ruite betrokke is. Volgens Kevin Twiname, Sabric – die organisasie wat die bankwese teen misdaad bystaan – se bestuurder van geweldsmisdaad, verskil die hoeveelheid geld in ’n OTM tussen lae- na hoërisikogebiede. “Vir banke is die herstel- en vervangingskoste, wat tussen R50 000 en R300 000 kan beloop ná so ’n aanval, meer kommerwekkend,” het hy gesê. Sedert die aanval, het die gemeenskap vir Coenraad en Luke op die hande gedra. “Ons kry so baie oproepe. Mense se ondersteuning is ongelooflik. Ons wil vir ons kliënte, die gemeenskap, die polisie, die plofstofeenheid en die forensiese eenheid baie dankie sê vir hulle hulp en steun. Dit was regtig fantasties.”

Kidi Corners Reading Buddies have been established in Bonteheuwel and spreading to other communities as part of a unique project by Kaleidoscope Educational Services. Fadeela Davids is the passionate force behind this initiative and wants to see it spread to other communities. She explained that members of the community were trained to facilitate these Kidi Corners from within their areas so that they did not have to go far to start enjoying reading. Apart from Bonteheuwel, she has trained facilitators in Langa, Mitchells Plain, Ottery, Parkwood, and Lansdowne. Davids also pointed out that in South Africa there is a tremendous illiteracy problem. “One of the reasons is that we do not have a culture of reading in our communities. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that as most of our schools do not have a library, learners do not have access to books at school which they can take home to read. “At least, if this happened we could ensure the possibility of books being shared by the

family in the home. Another problem is that learners only see books as a learning tool, therefore the possibility of creating a love for reading is very slim. “Our learners are never exposed to books purely for enjoyment. If we could ensure that our children are exposed to stories on a regular basis from an early age, we could plant that seed and nurture that love for stories and thereby create lifelong readers,” she said. To solve this problem Davids has started training people on the ground level to start with reading and story telling sessions to children who live in their neighbourhoods twice a week. “Each facilitator is trained to reach out to 10 children, probably from just in their street to attend these sessions and as more facilitators are trained so it will spread as more facilitators are trained,” she continued. “All children involved become reading buddies and are also encouraged to join their local library. In addition, they are also more likely to watch less TV, have less exposure to violence, and in areas where you have severe gansterism, you create other avenues for children to spend their time.” For more information about the project Davids can be contacted on 021 703 4119 or 078 135 9603, or see www.faraza.co.za.

Seniors need assistance GARY VAN DYK

The sun shines for seniors and disabled at the Sonskyn Club in Bishop Lavis, but they need your help to make it better. Ursula Piet, manager of the club, explained that they have been going for a number of years, and they were not just a club for seniors. “While a lot of our members are seniors we also welcome the disabled in the community to join us in our activities,” she said. “Normally we are open five days a week and give the members a meal and tea while they are here. Unfortunately we have been unable to operate because our kombi has broken down so we can’t transport the members to the club. “The other problem that we have is that our roof needs to be fixed because it is leaking and we just don’t have the funds to do it now,” she said.

Piet also added that the club played a vital role in the lives of the members, many would be lonely if not for the activities of the club. “There’s very strong social element to the club and members enjoy being here to chat and the good company, but they enjoy the activities that include arts and crafts, and we host regular visits from the clinic that sees to some of their medical needs.” Piet also appreciated the members of the community who care about their members and said that local Greenlands Primary School adopted the club as part of its Soul Buddyz Community Care Programme. “They really help and make the members feel special when they visit. “The school brings us regular gift packs of toiletries and other goods, and I can assure them that it is always appreciated. The members also enjoy it when the children sing and dance for them.” For more information Piet can be contacted on 021 934 6200 or 079 790 2065.

Inspirational day GARY VAN DYK

Youth in Nooitgedacht exercised their rights to enjoy sport to celebrate Human Rights Day last week.

to destroy. “Children must know it is their right to play and have fun in their communities without fear,” he said. Meyer also thanked the organisers of the day because they were showing children that there are positive benefits from taking part in sport. He also encouraged them to look beyond their circumstances when reaching for their dreams by pointing out the example of Oscar Pistorius. “If you start thinking you’e got it bad, remember this young man who was born without legs, and today he is one of the world’s best runners. “His disability was not his only obstacle in life; people shunned him, teased him, even hid his legs at school, but he never let it get him down in his quest to be one of the fastest runners in the world. “Look to him for inspiration when you think things are bad and you will make a success of your life.”

Local ward councillor Asa Abrahams was instrumental in getting it all together as she hosted various sporting activities at the “Pink Flats” in the area. Youngsters in the area were able to take part in a variety of tournaments that included street soccer and netball, as well as other entertainment for the day. Addressing the gathering before the start of the games, Dr Ivan Meyer, Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport for the province, reminded participants that he grew up in the area and that sport played a big part in the community when he was growing up. “Those days the streets belonged to the children,” he said. “We were always out having soccer games, cricket games, running races, and cars knew that they had to give way for us. “Supper times had to wait because there was always a last goal, or winning run to be scored, and with events like this we want to encourage the youth to learn from those days when they could enjoy themselves on out streets. We want gangsters to know that we are taking back our streets and communities because they don’t belong Youngsters at the celebration also got the chance to learn some dancing in the communi- skills with a dance lesson that taught them that they have the moves ties that they want and rythm to enjoy dancing.

Thrills ’n spills on new BMX track GARY VAN DYK

BMX bikers in Bonteheuwel will soon be burning up the sand in competitions, with their own track in the area.

Cutting the ribbon to officially open the BMX track are, from left: Gert Bam, director, Sport Recreation and Amenities; Antonio Van Der Rheede, chairper­ son, Community Services Portfolio Committee; Elton Davids, BMX commissi­ oner, Cycling South Africa; Elana Meyer, CEO of the JAG Foundation, and Karen Pohl, WP Pedalpower Association.

Young BMX’ers get to meet top riders taking part in the Cape Epic, Karl Platz and Stefan Sahm.

Last week the Chairperson of the City of Cape Town’s Community Services Portfolio Committee, Councillor Antonio Van Der Rheede officially opened the new facility at the Metropolitan Sportsfield, along with Karl Platt and Stefan Sahm of the JAG Foundation. The 320 meter long track is the only one of its kind in the area and was established for the Bonteheuwel community as part of the JAG Riders programme, thanks to a partnership between the city’s Sport, Recreation and Amenities Department; the JAG Foundation; Pedal Power Association (PPA); and Cycling South Africa. The JAG Foundation inspires South Africa’s disadvantaged children to build a positive future for themselves, their families and their communities, by encouraging them to participate in various sport-related programmes. By instilling sporting values for life, they aim to create an environment for South Africa’s children to fulfil their dreams and thereby rebuild communities. They recently introduced the JAG Riders programme and it is spearheaded by former semi-professional cyclist, Graham Hector, with a focus on providing the youth with cycling opportunities. Under the supervision of trained

coaches, children of all ages will develop their skills on mountain bikes by participating in a number of cycling events on a regular basis. There are currently approximately 50 children participating in this programme and the new BMX track serves as an excellent training facility. At the opening Van der Rheede encouraged the children to make good use of the facility and for the community to also take ownership of it. “BMX is a growing sport and if you work hard at it you can reach the highest levels, even take part in the Olympics.

“You are meeting some of the top riders in the Cape Epic here today and they will tell you that they were also your age once upon a time, and worked hard to achieve the level of professionalism that they have attained. “You must also keep in mind that your education is also important so your homework and schoolwork must be done before you bring your bike here to practise,” he said. The event was also attended by top riders Karl Platz and Stefan Sahm, of the acclaimed Bulls team who are taking part in the Absa Cape Epic that started earlier this week.

Riders try out the new track in Bonteheuwel.

Minister slams fare increase Robin Carlisle, the minister of transport and public works in the Western Cape last week said he wants Metrorail “to adjust its planned fare increase from the totally unacceptable 27 percent planned for 1 April, to a single digit figure.” Although there had been no increases in fares from 2003 and 2010, Metrorail’s planned 27 percent increase for this year added to 2011’s 33 percent increase, means there would be an effective 60 percent rise in fares in just two years. “This increase is totally unacceptable for the following reasons, which I have discussed with Metrorail’s Western Cape regional manager Mthura Swartz,” the minister said.

These include the continuing extremely poor service of Metrorail. “Instead of these huge ad hoc increases there should be a small increase each year, not greater than the inflation rate.” He furthermore stated that 1 April is too soon for an increase to be implemented because it does not give commuters time to plan their finances. “It appears that Metrorail’s budgeting took into account the projected electricity tariff increase of 25,9 percent for 2012/2013, which has since been adjusted to 16 percent. Their actual costs will therefore be lower than expected and Metrorail should have adjusted their increase accordingly,” Carlisle said.

AANSOEKE OM HULPTOELAES VIR 2012/2013: STADSGESONDHEID Die Stad Kaapstad se gesondheidsdepartement wag aansoeke om befondsing in van nieregeringsorganisasies wat dienste lewer vir die geïntegreerde bestuur van kindersiektes in die gemeenskap in die Tygerberg-subdistrik.

Moeder- en kindergesondheid Gesondheidsopvoeding en -bevordering in gemeenskappe (MIV/TB, inenting, groeimonitering, diarree en reproduktiewe gesondheid)

Alle aansoekers moet oor ‘n bewese werkgeskiedenis beskik, en realisties wees wanneer hulle hul begrotings opstel aangesien befondsing beperk is. Begrotings moet dus op ‘n projekgrondslag voorgelê word. Aansoekers moet as nieregeringsorganisasies geregistreer wees (NWO, NRO, artikel 21, trust, ens.).

Rules of the road Remember the road rules with the upcoming public holidays and long weekends – this is the message from the City of Cape Town. “We remind road users that they all – regardless of the manner in which they travel – have a responsibility to adhere to the rules of the road,” says Chief Inspector Merle Lourens, spokesperson for Cape Town Traffic Services. “Our law enforcement officials will enforce the law equally against anyone transgressing these basic rules.” Two areas of particular concern is how pedestrians make use of pedestrian crossings, and how cyclists behave in relation to other road users. . The pedestrian signal system consists of three signal indications, namely the steady red man, steady green man and flashing red man. . The steady red man is well understood to mean that pedestrians should not begin to cross the road. The steady green man indicates to pedestrians that they may begin to cross the road. Pedestrians should not begin to cross after the end of the green man signal as they may not have sufficient time to complete the crossing before the start of the steady red man. .The flashing red man indicates to a pedestrian who has begun to cross on the green man that he or she should complete their crossing without delay. The length of time for which the flashing red man is displayed is based on the time that it would take the average person to cross the road. . A pedestrian who begins to cross the road on the last second of the green man will therefore have sufficient time to complete the crossing. Without the flashing red man signal, pedestrians would not be able to judge whether they can reach the opposite side of the road before the start of the steady red man. The length of the flashing red man is extended in instances where it is known that the pedestrian crossing is used by significant numbers of people, or people who walk slower than the average person, such as the elderly. . There is a misperception amongst drivers and some pedestrians that pedestrians must finish crossing the road within the green man signal. This is untrue. A person who begins to cross the road

during the green man has right-of-way over cars both during the green and flashing red man signals. Drivers must yield to pedestrians crossing lawfully during these periods. “The signal system is not complicated, but is misused by those people who do not know its meaning and resort to doing what they think is correct. The city encourages all road users to familiarise themselves with the meanings of traffic signals and to display patience and courtesy towards others,” said Lourens. . Road traffic laws do not differentiate between the driver of a car, or a cyclist. In the eyes of the law, they are equal; each with a set of rights and responsibilities. A bicycle is considered a vehicle, under South African law. Too often cyclists are observed ignoring traffic lights and “jumping” red robots. Cyclists are breaking the law and will be liable for a fine if they are observed ignoring traffic lights. There are several ways to stay safe on the roads: . Be visible. Unlike in many global cities where thousands of cyclists commute and drivers are used to keeping an eye out, drivers in South Africa don’t always expect cyclists. Cyclists can help by wearing high-visibility clothing (orange, neon green, yellow or pink), flashing LED belts and trouser-straps, also by riding 1,5m in from the road edge rather than in the road gutters. . Obey the rules of the road: South African law considers you the driver of a vehicle, so you have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. . Be assertive, but polite. Show others the respect you would like to be shown. . Pay attention at intersections and traffic circles – particularly where vehicles may be turning left in front of you. . Be predictable, at busy intersections indicate to traffic where you intend to go. . Ride often and keep up your urban riding skills – nervous, hesitant cyclists often endanger pedestrians and motorists. . Ride in single file and wear a helmet – a helmet won’t prevent you from being involved in a crash, but it may prevent serious injury if you are. . Don’t deliberately swerve your bike from side to side, and always keep at least one hand on the handlebars.

Showcase of skills GARY VAN DYK

A songwriter in Bonteheuwel is showcasing his skills on Saturday night. Dave Solomons is well-known among jazz lovers of the 70s and 80s scene for his dynamic voice with outfits like Touch, The Tony Schilder Trio and The Four Sounds, and nowdays those talents are highlighted in the gospel field. While his love for jazz has not diminished he feels that getting into the gospel music scene has taken his songwriting skills to another level. On Saturday he will Dave Solomons be hosting, The Songs of David - A Worship Experience, showcasing songs that he has written over the years. “I have been blessed to write songs that have touched so many people’s lives, and we sing many of them here at the Methodist Church at our services,” he says. “With this concert I want to start the process of spreading that music beyond Bonte-

heuwel, because I believe that the time has come for it to be recorded, but that takes money and we want to raise funds for it at this event. “The other reason is that one of our guitars broke and we need to replace it, and get additional audio equipment for our church.” Solomons also revealed that it was going to be an exciting evening of entertainment with some special guest artists from the community who prove that we don’t have to look far for young talent in the area. “I am just going to say that it includes a beautiful young violinist and a young sinPhoto: Gary van Dyk ger who is going to conquer the world with his talent,” he said with a broad smile. Tickets for the concert are R50, which includes a finger supper, and it starts at 18:00 on Saturday. The Methodist Church hall is in Vlamboom Street, Bonteheuwel, (next to Mimosa Primary).

‘Hou julle kinders in die vakansie dop’ REYANA STEYN

Met al die kinders wat reg oor die wêreld vermis raak, is die gemeenskap en ouers gewaarsku om hulle kinders dié skoolvakansie veilig te hou. Dié boodskap kom van Gadija Frances, koördineerder van die Delft Missing Children-organisasie, wat gereeld saam met die gesinne van vermiste kinders werk en kinders probeer opspoor. Skole in die Wes-Kaap het Vrydag vir twee weke gesluit en ouers is aangemoedig om ’n oog oor hulle kinders te hou. “Elke dag raak kinders weg en ons wil graag hê ouers moet hulle kinders dophou,” sê Frances. “Dit is altyd in hierdie tyd, tydens skoolvakansies, dat kinders wegraak en ons pleidooi aan ouers is dat hulle weet waar hul kinders is en wat hulle doen. Ouers moet hulle kinders beskerm.” Sy sê dit is noodsaaklik dat ouers hulle kinders ken. “Wees lief vir jou kind en wys jy gee om. Hoe meer tyd ouers saam met hul kin-

ders deurbring, hoe meer sal die kinders hulle vertrou en hulle vertel as iets gebeur.” Sy sê ouers moet seker maak dat hulle kinders al die noodtelefoonnommers ken in geval hulle dit nodig het. “Hulle moet ook seker maak hulle kinders weet wat om te doen om veilig te wees,” sê Frances. Sy sê hulle moet seker maak hulle kinders ken hierdie reëls: . Kinders moet nooit saam met vreemdes in voertuie klim nie. . Kinders moet weet dat hulle ook regte het en dat dit gerespekteer moet word. . Kinders behoort verdagte omstandighede te leer identifiseer en hoe om dit te rapporteer. Groot mense se onwelvoeglike gedrag of taal behoort deur kinders gerapporteer te word sonder vrees vir vergelding. . Probeer sover moontlik altyd in kontak met jou kind bly as hulle weg gaan. Enigiemand wat meer inligting wil hê oor hoe om hulle kinders veilig te hou, kan vir Frances bel by 083 695 7885.

Good time to be a scout GARY VAN DYK

The Scouts in Elsies River are “scouting” for new members in the area. On Saturday 17 March the 2nd Elsies River Scouts Group hosted a family fun day at the Elsies River Swimming Pool to highlight their activities. Chairman of the group, Duncan Meyer, said that it was aimed at promoting interaction between the scouts and their families, and to encourage other youngsters in the area to join. “There was good support on the day, and they enjoyed activities like tug-of-war, potato spoon races, a Marie biscuit eating challenge and the drink-out competition. “All agreed that interaction of this nature should be done on a regular basis.” Meyer revealed that this group has been serving the community for the past 40 years. “Over the years the group has been providing life skills training for the youth of the community,” he said. “The aim of scouting is to encourage the spiritual, mental, social and physical development of boys and girls in achieving their full potential as responsible citizens and as members of their local communities. “We cater for young people from the age of seven to 18, and it is split into two sections; cubs and scouts,

with each section serving a different age group and concentrating on different areas of personal development.” He also pointed out that scouts are awarded various badges for achievement in the organisation. “The highest award attainable by a scout in the South African Scout Association is the Springbok award. A Scout is required to complete all the requirements for the Springbok award before their 18th birthday. “Apart from the existing scouting programme the activities focus on developing the scout’s abilities in

sporting activities, such as a learn to swim programme, running since the beginning of this year.” According to Meyer the future of Scouting in Elsies River lies in the ability to interact with other organisations such as schools, soccer and netball clubs as well as religious bodies, especially those who focus on youth development. Scout and Cub meetings are held on a weekly basis at St Nicolas Church Hall in Halt Road. For more information Meyer can be contacted on 084 018 8605, or group scouter Wayne Jood on 084 426 1972.

An Easter egg hunt was lots of fun for these children with Duncan Meyer, back left, and Godwin Amos also trying to get their share.

Bring your talents with A new arts foundation in Elsies River is using music to make changes in the community. The New Elsies River Arts Foundation (NERA) in collaboration with Bix C (Cedric Flandorf), Alfonso Arendse, Baron Barends and The

Crew came up with the idea of showcasing the talent in Elsies River, and they got it all together in Leonsdale on Saturday 17 March. Ricardo Speelman, director of NERA, said that the event was very successful as all the artists who took part gave their best to provide some great entertainment in 11th Avenue, among the flats.

Breakdancer Corbin gets his groove going with members of his crew at the talent showcase in Leonsdale.

“Our goal with this concert was to show youngsters what they can do with their talents in a positive manner, and how they can achieve it if they have the right resources. “Our organisation together with the Performing Arts Network of South Africa (PANSA) is trying to create a platform for these youngsters to at least try to stay away from making wrong choices and the consequences that come with it. “I’m also trying to get more people involved to start community based workshops together with Emile Jansen from Heal the Hood Productions, Quinton Goliath Jitsvingers and many other artists who would like to get on board to assist the initiative. “In this regard we are looking for donations of instruments or sound equipment that we can use at our projects,” he said. Another event will be held on Friday 27 April with Park Jamms opposite the Elsies River Library and they’re inviting more local talent to take part. “We want people to see what we are busy with,” continued Speelman. “This event will also be in memory of those artists who have died due to gang violence and other crime. “We are also appealing to businesses to assist us in this venture because it is going to make a difference in the future of our communities. Further information about the project from Speelman on 078 537 4888, or email speelmanricardo327@gmail.com.

Getting it drummed in:

Some 150 children from nine schools took part in the first session of the Elsies Schools Arts Collective (ES­ AC) in the form of an exhilarating drumming workshop by Bevil Spence of Drumba. Initiated by ComArt, a community arts organisation based in Elsies River, ESAC is a project to establish an arts, culture and creative collective with learners from primary schools in Elsies River. The initiative aims to enhance and develop their artistic talents, also enabling them to exercise their right to creative expression. The lear­ ners will participate in ongoing workshops with a team of technical and artistic professionals, presenting public performances, exhibiti­ ons and installations, culminating in a one­day festival in September this year. The initiative is intended to become an annually recurring project. Spence is seen here taking the learners through their drum­ ming experience.

Kinders kom bid saam Mighty kids Arise is ’n wêreldwye inisiatief waar ’n gebedsdag vir en deur kinders gehou word. Op 14 April sal kinders tussen die ouderdomme van vier en 14 in al die uithoeke van die wêreld saamkom om

vir hul onderskeie lande te bid. Vir skole wat graag wil meedoen, is ’n DVD beskikbaar met ’n uurlange program om die kinders in gebed en aanbidding te lei. Meer inligting by arise@mightykids.co.za.

Stalwart to retire early GARY VAN DYK

The good deeds of a dedicated community workers is coming to an end, but a good heart will always keep beating. Dhakir Christians is well-known for his work in the community in various fields ranging from youth empowerment to a strong anti-drug stance, but due to health problems he is retiring from community activities at the end of this month. He revealed that he knew it was going to be difficult because of his passion to make a difference, but he has to cut down on doctor’s orders (Christians suffered a stroke during last year). “It’s going to be difficult to say no, but my health and my family comes first,” he said. Over the past eight years he has worked in the Bellville South, Bishop Lavis, Bonteheuwel, Delft, Mitchells Plain, Eerste River, and Elsies River communities mainly in the field of anti-drug activism. He also steps down as founder of the Former Tik Addicts Rehabilitation Organisation (FTARO), and Mothers Against Drug Abuse (MADA). While he is sad about having to leave he is confident the assistance and support to communities will be in place for many more years. “A lot of the work that I have done in the last eight years has included nurturing people to maintain the fight in the community, so there will be somebody to bring a new energy to all our projects,” he said. “It has also been tough with many drug referrals refused due to lack of finances, but here I want to thank the New Jerusalem Restoration Centre for their constant assistance when it was needed.” Christians also extended his gratitude to all those who have been of assistance over the years and assured clients that many other doors would be opening to give them guidance in the future. “I am sad to leave what has become my passion, but due to unforeseen circumstances I have to reach this difficult choice – 2012 is a year that I must concentrate on my family, who I have neglected, my employment, and importantly my health.” Local councillor Mercia Kleinsmith who worked with Christians on many projects said that the retirement was a sad loss. “I am still struggling to come to terms with his decision even though I understand the reasons,” she said. “Over the years he became one of our best community workers, dedicated and hard working. He has been vigorously active in the combatting of drug and alcohol abuse, initiated various projects and recently took on a portfolio in Youth Development as well. “In the years that Dhakir has worked in our communities, change took place and he became a familiar face to the communities, a well-known name, and his retirement leaves a huge gap in dedicated community workers. “I wish Dhakir well in his future endeavours and thank him for the sacrifices he made over the years.”

LEWENSKIEKIE

Metro Police deserve credit This newspaper receives “spin” stories on a daily basis, always positive news about this and that company’s success, blah blah blah. To put a positive spin on every event is what a PR company is paid to do. They also get kudos if the press release is printed as is, without the journalist asking pertinent questions or double checking the statistics. Sadly, we live in a world where desk jockeys have taken over the media landscape. It’s so much easier to simply “copy and paste” than to go out there and get the real story. Part of our job is to sift through these “spin” stories, separate the wheat from the chaff. The Metro Police are excellent in sending out press releases of recent successes. The one that landed in Monday’s inbox was about them having arrested 34 people over the weekend for a myriad of offences, including drug possession and drunk driving. They’re doing their job, that’s for sure. And then they get flak from the public. Flak for making them late, for inconveniencing them. The same people enjoy living in relative peace, hoping the police are out there doing their job. It’s time to make a mindshift and give the Metro Police the credit they deserve. So next time you get stopped at a roadblock, adjust your attitude while you wait.

Why are traffic officers issuing traffic fines to Joe Public during morning peak hours? The slow traffic flow is horrendous on Fairtrees Road, especially where it crosses with Eversdal Road in Durbanville. Yet on more than four occasions I have noticed how traffic officers park their vehicles “illegally” (on island at traffic light as well as on the verge of Fairtrees Road where it links up with De Bron Road), blocking the free flow of traffic. Then they pull over “suspicious” drivers and cars, who now also have to park on the verge, further disrupting traffic. A couple of years ago a Good Samaritan received a hefty fine, when he stopped at a similar spot to offer me a lift, because, according to the cop, it was illegal to stop on the verge of the road where part of the vehicle protrudes on the yellow line or is a danger to other road users. Needless to say I paid half of the fine. Why should it be right for them to park where they want to, though there is no apparent accident or emergency, but it would be wrong for others? Why can’t they do something to improve the traffic flow and not further frustrate road uses already stuck in traffic? Who benefits from their actions? Is it not their duty to serve and not irritate? FERNANDO Durbanville Maxine Jordaan, spokesperson for traffic services: The City of Cape Town’s traffic officers issue traffic fines to offenders at all times of the day, irrespective of whether it is peak hour or not, as motorists don’t only commit violations in off-peak periods. Traffic officers can and will stop and or park their vehicle at any place where it is safe to do so in order to execute their duties. However, they must ensure that they do not cause more of an obstruction when doing so. We do find, on occasions, that at some locations there is likely to be a nominal amount of obstruction caused. But, then it is necessary to do so and the necessary precautions will be taken. All road users at all hours benefit from traffic services – for example if a taxi driver is charged for inconsiderate driving he receives the punishment suited for the violation. The motorists and pedestrians whose lives ‘was or could have’ been in danger are protected.

City plan for fun holidays A range of activities will be hosted during the Easter school holidays by the City of Cape Town’s Sport, Recreation and Amenities Department. This means that parents need not worry how they will keep their children entertained during this period. About 500 holiday programmes kicked off from Monday and will run until Thursday 5 April. The programmes will be presented at the city’s various community halls, swimming pools, beaches, parks and public open spaces; libraries, sport and recreation facilities as well as resorts across the metropole. “Each of the six districts in the Sport, Recreation and Amenities Department will use the services of volunteers to ensure that all of the programmes are effectively implemented,” says the city’s mayoral committee member for community services, Councillor Tandeka Gqada. “Our goal with these programmes is to encourage children from communities throughout the city to participate in sport, recreation and special events during the holiday period, and in the long term.” A number of youth and holiday camps will also be hosted at various city resorts during the holiday period. The objective of these camps is to expose the youth to fun activities while also building social and life skills by teaching them how to work in groups, respect authority and appreciate nature. “These are skills and lessons that the youth will be able to take back to their communities so that they can positively influence their peers,” says Gqada. The participants will be based at the camps and will also go on mountain hikes and excursions to explore the biodiversity within the city. Indoor programmes that will be hosted at community centres include board games, gymnastics, rope-skipping, karate, pool, poetry and drama; concerts, indigenous games, cultural dances as well as fitness training. Outdoor programmes include fivea-side soccer, mini-netball, basketball, cricket, hockey, sport against crime, big walks, fun-runs; beach soccer, waterpolo, learn-to-swim programmes, beach volleyball, slippery slides, jumping castle, face-painting, trampolining, touch rugby and more. The public is encouraged to take advantage of the city’s extensive holiday programme and to visit their local community centre. For more information contact recreation officers: .

Young and old jive to the jazz The jazz jive was alive in the last rays of the summer sunshine on Saturday when The G-Spot hosted the Jazz on the Lawns festival at the BevCan Sportsfield in Epping. Music lovers from across the peninsula pitched up armed with their picnic baskets, umbrellas and gazebos to enjoy the day’s entertainment that featured some of the top acts on the local scene. Young, old and in-between were there to soak up the sounds of the likes of the Little Giants, N2, BlackKurrant, Allou April, Majitas, Karen Kortje, and Richard Caesar, with their only complaint being that there were too few hours in the day to enjoy it for longer. There was very little time to sit down, because most of the music had the crowd up and dancing. It brings back the wise words of the late Taliep Petersen: “We got de beat, We got de beat, everybody born here in Cape Town has got that rhythm in their feet!”

One of the Cape's musical treasures, bass man Spencer Mbadu, was part of Majietas that featured at the festi­ val on Saturday.

It was all about capturing that musical moment for many of the music lovers who spent time at the festival in Epping on Saturday. The young talents also got their chance to take to the stage at Jazz on the Lawns and the brass section of The Little Giants impressed the crowds with their tribute to South African composers. When it comes to local talent dynamite can come in small packa­ ges and the Little Dynamics proved that they have what it takes when they took to the stage. Here Chloe Sampson (nine) and Hiram Hartogh (six), get their groove going that had the crowds screaming for more.

Jazz on the Lawns was jiving on Saturday at the BevCan Sportsfield in Epping with music lovers packing the place for a fun­filled day of great local sounds. One of the headline acts was Majietas, that featured guitarist Errol Dyers and sax man Victor Khula, seen here making their musical magic. Photos: Gary van Dyk

Internationally acclaimed multi­instrumentalist, Tony Cedras, (performs re­ gularly as part of Paul Simon's band), was at the festival and had to give the youngsters from The Little Dynamics some encouragement after their performance. They are from left, Williskie Davids (bass guitar), Chloe Samps­ on (vocals), Dwayne Dyers (percussion), Hiram Hartogh (vocals), and Mar­ shall Hartogh (drums). Williskie's twin brother, Willetan plays keyboards in the band.

Hofbevel kan verslaafdes help MARANA BRAND VAN HULSTEYN

Soms is daar nie meer planne oor om dwelmverslaafdes se afbrekende gedrag teenoor hulself en die mense naaste aan hulle, te stop nie. Moontlik die laaste uitweg, sê Kobus Pienaar, organiseerder van die Christelike Afhanklikheidsdiens (CAD) van Ramot in Oosterzee, is om so iemand met ’n hofbevel te dwing om aandag aan sy/haar lewe en afhanklikheidsprobleem te gee. “Middelafhanklike persone kan deur die Rehabilitasiehof gedwing word om vir kort- of langtermynbehandeling te gaan indien die persoon nie self daarin slaag om op te hou om dwelms of alkohol te gebruik nie,” sê Kobus. Die hof kan ook bepaal dat ’n finale hofbevel uitgestel word met sekere voorwaardes soos dat iemand vir rehabilitasie en nasorg gaan en intussen gereeld vir dwelms getoets word. Indien die persoon sou “terugval” kom die hofbevel in wer-

White must be the new green The heat wave has been almost enough to make one believe in global warming. Then, just when you think the “greenies” are right, you turn on the TV and see the biggest freeze in Europe for decades. From this you will gather that I have my doubts about climate scientists. I also have problems with weather predictions, served up on all the electronic media. This business of a 30 or 60 percent chance of rain is weird. Why do we never have a 50 percent or an 80 percent chance of rain? Weather forecasters have an abundance of information from satellites but they still get it wrong. One suspects that the whole job is turned over to computers which tell us that the temperature in Paarl will peak at precisely 37 degrees C. Wonderful, but how can they know the precise temperature at any given location and still be so vague about the really important things like rain? The heat wave also tells us important things about the way we live. In these informal times most of us have shed a layer of undergarments and things like jackets with collars and ties are on the way out. Now we wear baseball caps and walk around in a state of semi-undress at weekends. Any Arab from one of the desert tribes would tell us that we are mad and the only way to cope with real heat is to cover up and keep it out. Our complete failure to understand that

can be seen in the way we build houses. All those big windows and, worst of all, black roofs! Solar water heaters have taught us just how effective the colour black is at absorbing the radiation from the sun. A onesquare metre black panel can provide hot water for a family so you can imagine how much heat is absorbed by a whole roof. We try to deal with the problem by installing layers of insulation above the ceiling but all this does is trap the heat in the roof space where it builds up, drying out the timber and causing maximum expansion and contraction. A black cover over a confined and well insulated space is the way to make a solar oven! All roofs should be painted white because white reflects both light and heat, making it much easier to deal with the heat that does manage to penetrate – as any desert Arab will tell you. Just imagine how much less electrity would be used by reducing the demand for air conditioning. We would all become nicer people if we lived in cooler homes. Productivity would increase. We would all become, cooler, wiser, saner and more productive. All the “greenies” have to do is ban black, red, grey and green roofs in hot countries and they will change the world. All roofs should be white, preferably ceramic white, so that they become heat shields to keep out the solar radiation.

TB stats show some progress ANDRÉ BAKKES

Local healthcare providers were honoured with certificates and trophies during an informative ceremony on Friday in which the latest TB, HIV and sexually transmitted infections statistics for the City of Cape Town were revealed. Mayoral committee member for health, Councillor Lungiswa James, started off the proceedings at the Goodwood Civic Centre by saying that the battle against these diseases is still far from conclusion, but that considerable progress has nonetheless been made. “We need to take collective responsibility, inform the community and encourage those who have been exposed or those who are symptomatic to come forward for testing and screening,” she emphasised. “An untreated TB patient can affect another 10 people in one year!” She went on to reveal that the provincial health department has achieved an 83 percent cure rate in TB treatment. “This is a great milestone and couldn’t have been achieved without our dedicated staff and NGOs.” That was the very purpose of the ceremony, which was conveniently held on World TB Day – to honour those who have taken up the fight to eradicate this disease, along with HIV and STIs. She concluded: “Zero tolerance, zero stigma and zero deaths!” After her speech, a video message from Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was shown in which he recounted the time when he was on death’s doorstep due to TB. Both he and former President Nelson Mandela suffered from this disease, so it was made clear that there should be no shame in being

TB can be eliminated! “If we all work together we can see a real reduction in the burden of TB. God bless you.” The stats were presented for the different subdistricts of Cape Town: the western region includes Milnerton, Table View and Du Noon, the northern region includes Kraaifontein and Brackenfell, while Tygerberg includes Bellville, Parrow, and Goodwood.

Some of the awards are: . The subdistrict with highest condom distribution coverage per male, 15 years or older: Khayelitsha subdistrict together with TAC, Health 4 Men, Yabonga, Love Life and Lifeline Lay Counsellors (102 condoms per male per year). . Subdistrict with the highest overall HIV testing coverage: Mitchells Plain subdistrict, YMCA Cape Flats, TB/HIV Care Lay Counsellors and all Non-Medical Sites (25,3 percent – Tygerberg got

25,2 percent and Klipfontein got 24,4 percent). . Subdistrict with the highest percentage of HIV positive clients having a CD4 count done: Tygerberg subdistrict (96 percent). . Subdistrict with the most effective PMTCT programme: Klipfontein subdistrict. . Subdistrict with the greatest increase in clients enrolled on antiretroviral therapy (2010 vs 2011): Khayelitsha sub district from 4 813 to 5 605 (16 percent). . For the best TB programme

Some interesting stats from the wealth of data released show that: . In 2009 (the latest data available), the TB cure rate in the City of Cape Town was 80 percent, compared to 68 percent which was the national average. . In the northern subdistrict in 2011, 6 084 partner slips were issued, but only 1 303 partners were tested for STIs. In the western subdistrict 15 445 were issued and 1 815 were tested, and in Tygerberg 8 973 were issued and 1 150 were tested. . Just over 72 million male condoms were distributed in Cape Town Metro between 2004 and 2011. . In 2011, 40 529 people above 15 years of age were tested for HIV in Northern, 87 282 in Tygerberg and 68 263 in the Western subdistricts. . In Tygerberg 99 percent of people who were diagnosed with TB were also tested for HIV, in Western 94 percent and in Northern 98 percent.

in a low burden clinic (annual caseload < 200 per annum): Melkbosstrand Clinic (case load: 40) . For the best TB programme in a medium burden clinic (annual caseload 200 - 400 per annum): Hanover Park Clinic (case load: 226) . For the best TB programme in a high burden clinic (annual caseload > 400 per annum): Langa Clinic (case load: 732) . Subdistrict with best new smear positive cure rate: Mitchells Plain subdistrict.

Osteopathy could be the answer you seek MARITA MEYER

“An osteo what?” – The answer nine of my 10 friends gave me when I told them I was seeing an osteopath for a muscle injury. They’re not alone – most South Africans fall into this category. Fact is osteopathy, a “hands-on” manual therapy, has been around since the 1870s (before chiropractic and physiotherapy), but in South Africa it’s still relatively unknown. According to Dr Guy Ashburner, there are only 50 registered osteopaths in South Africa compared with more than 5 000 in the United Kingdom. Guy runs an osteopathic clinic in Constantia and patients come from all over the Peninsula to get treatment for a wide range of problems which include back pain, disc injuries, pain in the neck, sciatica, trapped nerves, headaches, joint and muscle pain, symptoms of arthritis, sport related injuries, fibromyalgia, pain during pregnancy, infantile colic, irritable babies as well as latching and suckling difficulties. According to Guy, osteopathy is not the same as chiropractic or physiotherapy. “Osteopaths take into account not only physical symptoms, but also the patient’s lifestyle and attitudes, as well as his or her overall health, effectively treating the patient as a whole. The osteopath considers physical, environmental and stress factors simultaneously, whereas the general medical practitioner would usually treat these factors individu-

An osteopath makes use of a wide range of techniques to treat problems such as back pain, headaches, muscle injuries and trapped nerves. ally and in isolation from each other.” Osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists treat the same conditions with different approaches. “ Many of our patients have seen many therapists and prefer our holistic osteopathic approach.” While chiropractors tend to be very focused on a range of techniques for manipulation of the spine, osteopaths do not manipulate (click) a joint the way chiropractors do. “We make use of a wider range of techniques for the whole body. Apart from manipulation, osteopaths use other techniques such as stretches, massage and gentle re-

lease techniques (cranial osteopathy) without any ‘clicking’ of the joints.” Guy believes this “hands-on” therapy can help restore the normal mobility of the musculoskeletal system which in turn improves the function of the nervous, circulatory and immune systems and allows faster healing, reducing pain, congestion and restriction within the body. “By paying attention to the significance of any alteration in structure or function (the joints, muscles, ligaments, bones and connective tissue), an osteopath is able to interpret whole patterns of aches, pains and general health prob-

lems.” If you suffer from headaches, for example, it could be the final symptom of lower-back or foot-related problems. “If you have a knee injury, an osteopath will also assess whether there may be any involvement of other areas with a mechanical relationship to the knee, such as the foot, hip, lower back and pelvis, and the associated soft tissues,” explains Guy. It’s all about treating the underlying causes. Guy studied at the British School of Osteopathy in the United Kingdom and also has a post-graduate diploma in paediatric osteopathy. He

emigrated to South Africa in 2006, after which he opened his clinic Osteopathy Cape Town. He is passionate about correct posture and appropriate exercise and goes as far as saying that if no one had bad posture, most medical practitioners would be without a job. “Good posture is the cornerstone of good health,” says Guy. “It’s so basic – if it’s moving, it’s working. A lack of mobility to a greater of lesser degree will contribute to many medical conditions. The more movement, the better your body works, that’s nature. It’s all about keeping it simple.” The first consultation with an osteopath will include a detailed case history leading to a patient’s present symptoms. A physical examination is then conducted to evaluate the body’s biomechanics (structure, posture and physical movements). “Subsequent manual therapy will range from very subtle techniques used for babies, through to more robust methods for athletes. Some of these include gentle releasing, joint articulation and manipulation, muscle stretching, rhythmic joint movements, soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy and lymphatic drainage,” explains Guy. The number of visits will depend on the severity and duration of the illness or injury and can range from between two to six consultations. Consultation time ranges from 45 to 60 minutes.

The Shameen Classic is making waves on the local bodybuilding scene boasting the highest prize money and prizes ever – in excess of R400 000 for Saturday’s show. The Bellville Campus Sports Hall at CPUT will be the venue. Well-known professional bodybuilder Lee Priest was the guest poser at last year’s show, which was attended by 4 000 spectators. The new Shameen Classic show is now part of a private collection of shows which are hosted by Elixir. Elixir will be hosting seven fitness weekends in 2013. Each fitness weekend will consist of a brand new MMA amateur grand

prix knockout series, Musclemania fitness grands prix from Vegas, bodybuilding grands prix, a three-day Crossfit challenge, powerlifting and strongman series and lots more. All the 2013 shows, as well as the Shameen Classic for 2012, are not affiliated to any bodybuilding federation. For the athletes this means the show is open to every athlete from any federation to enter the show. Apart from all the male bodybuilders and fitness girls on stage, the Shameen Classic will also boast three huge bikini girl line-ups. More than 50 girls in great shape are expected. Weigh-in is from 12:00 to 14:00. Main show starts at 15:00.

UWK­krieketspan weer kampioen in WP­liga SAREL BURGER

Die senior krieketspan van die Universiteit Wes-Kaapland is Saterdag vir die tweede jaar binne die bestek van drie seisoene as die kampioen in die WP se eerste liga gekroon toe hy in die laaste reeks tweedaagse wedstryde vir Claremont opgekeil het. Mujahid Behardien (145) het die aanvoorwerk gedoen vir die uitklophou en saam met Aviwe Mgijima (33) hul span 234/5, gesl., laat opstapel het – wat die besoekers met die gedugte taak gelaat het om 290 vir ’n oorwinning aan te teken. Maar Esmund van Wyk (4/34) en sy makkers het Claremont met hul telling op 203 tot oorgawe gedwing

Bodybuilding – it’s all official now STEHAN SCHOEMAN

Bodybuilding in South Africa is entering a new and exciting era. With the establishment of Bodybuilding South Africa (BBSA), that is affiliated to the International Federation of Bodybuilding (IFBB), local bodybuilders can now get national colours and BBSA can now apply for funding from government. Kevin Schwartz from Bellville is the new Western Province chairman, and a mammoth task awaits him to take bodybuilding to the next level. “I’m very excited about the future of bodybuilding, not only in the Western Province but in South Afri-

ca as a whole. We are in the process of applying for funds which will be used for development, judges’ courses and seminars. “One of our main areas we will focus on is development. I have decided to appoint Nelson Benjamin as our head of development,” said Schwartz. Benjamin, who is known as the godfather of bodybuilding, has helped numerous athletes to reach their goals. One of the country’s most well-known and professional athletes, Marius Dohne, regards Benjamin as one of the biggest influences in his career thus far. Schwartz, who has been a keen bodybuilding spectator for 10 years, knows the sport and knows what

the athletes go through in preparing for a show. “My wife, Bernadine, has made remarkable progress in a short time, winning local titles. “She had the honour of winning a world title,” says Schwartz. It takes hard work and dedication, believes Schwartz. “Getting up early to do cardio and strict diets make this one of the toughest sports out there. It’s my job to look after the athletes and touch base with them from time to time ... ” The first competition of the year in Cape Town will be the BBSA-IFBB Cape Classic on 21 April at Parow High School followed by the Muscle Mania on 23 June and the WP champs on 25 August.

om UWK met 86 lopies te laat wen. Ook Durbanville (208/8, gesl.) het ’n wegholsege met 143 lopies oor Ottomans behaal toe Mark de Stadtler (5/15) en GF Linde (4/25) die besoekers vir net 66 lopies uitgeboender het. Vroegdag was dit Wesley Thomas (71) wat met die kolf uitgeblink het. Origens was dit maar ’n droewige afsluiting van die seisoen vir die spanne in die Tygerbergstreek. Bellville het hom onverwags bloedneus geloop teen United (285/8, gesl.) wat die tuisspan (216) met 84 lopies verslaan het, ondanks die feit dat Handré Theron (50), William Hantam (45) en Ruben Healley (42) probeer walgooi het.

Milnerton (155) het met 7 paaltjies in die stof gebyt teen Bishop Lavis ten spyte van skaflike bydraes deur Peter Hillman (43), Robin van Harte (42) en Richard Holman (3/26). Tygerberg-klub (75) se kolwers het vir die tweede keer in die wedstryd teen Groenpunt nie hond haaraf gemaak nie. Die gevolg was ’n nederlaag met 5 paaltjies.

Metropolitan excitement grows THOMAS CAROLUS

Excitement is brewing for the annual Metropolitan Premier soccer tourney taking place in Belhar over Easter. While defending champions Komesho FC of Namibia will not be participating this year, there’s still lots of interest in who can put their hands on the cup this year. The Metropolitan Premier Cup for under-19s takes place from 4 to 9 April at Erica Park in Belhar. Now in its 24th year, the tournament has evolved into a key date on the local football calendar, consistently attracting crowds in exess of 30 000 over the Easter weekend, as well as coaches and scouts from South Africa’s biggest clubs and Europe. “A number of new teams have qualified this year,” said tournament director, PJ Williams. “This is a clear sign that the standard of football in this age-group is steadily improving and getting more competitive. The long standing support of Metropolitan, whose vision of youth development through football, has enabled us to grow the tournament into what it is today, is very important.

“Football remains the most poular sport in our country and very much in this province. We are indeed grateful for this opportunity to offer young players from across the country the chance to share with each other not only their football skills and abilities, but more importantly, their different cultural backgrounds. “This game has always provided wonderful opportunities for people to make friends for life. Long after the ‘battle’ of skills on the field has been forgotten. “We believe this year the Metropolitan Premier Cup, will be no different.” In the past 24 years the tournament has produced some of the country’s star players such as Steven Pienaar, Thulani Serero, Siyanda Xulu and Sameehg Doutie. For main sponsor, Metropolitan, the tournament is about youth development and empowerment. “If players use the platform presented to them by the tournament, they can be identified by scouts and get taken up by an acedemy,” said Phillip Matlakala, Chief Excutive at Metropolitan Retail. The captains of the teams also attend skills transfer workshops.

People’s Team go through to quarters THOMAS CAROLUS

Engen Santos is on the move in the Nedbank Cup. The people’s team advanced to the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup with a 1-0 victory over Roses United at the Botshabelo Stadium in Bloemfontein on Sunday with the only goal scored by Pere Ariweriyai, and even after ending up with nine men. Santos stamped their authority on the game early, almost taking the lead in the third minute when Siyabulela Songwiqi’s longrang effort narrowly sailed over the bar. The Cape side didn’t have to wait long to see the net bulge; and it was defender, Awiweriyai, who headed home from close range from a Wana cross in the eighth minute. After taking the early advantage, things seemed to go downhill for Santos, allowing Roses United to come back into the game and affording them a larger portion of the possession. Matters got worse for Santos when winger Songwiqi got a controversial second yellow card, apparently for taking too long to leave the field during a substitution. This resulted in an automatic red card, which came as a major surprise for the Santas bench. Being a man down opened doors for the home team, and they almost capitalised before the half-time break, but they were denied by the woodwork of the upright. The second half saw Santos display an amazing defensive strategy, being a man down until the 75th minute, and then they were down to nine when Salman King received his second yellow card. King who only came into the game in the 46th minute, had picked up two yellow cards in the space of thirty minutes, which coach Duncan Crowie later claimed to be unwarranted. Despite these setbacks Santos held it together to hold off pressure from the home side for the rest of the game. “We are very disappointed about the red cards,” said Crowie.

“It not only affects us on the day, but also on our goal to avoid relegation from the Premier League. But, on the day we had that fighting spirit to pull us through.” He also added that they were happy to beat Roses because they are not an easy team to beat. “We played in a town which had a different altitude to what we are normally used to and it was never easy to adapt, but I am happy we pulled through.” Having given a sterling performance and being awarded Man of the Match, the 28-year-old Ariweriyai remains realistic about his side’s chances in the Nedbank Cup. The other teams that went through to the next round are Sundowns, AmaZulu and Free State Stars.
