CRIME: BONTEHEUWEL JOINT PEACE FORUM IS FIGHTING TO MAKE THE NEIGHBOURHOOD SAFE

Plan for beating gangs GARY VAN DYK @gvdcapejazz

A

community initiative in Bonteheuwel has been praised as a blueprint for communities working together to win back their neighbourhoods from crime and gangsterism. Bonteheuwel’s Joint Peace Forum hosted a mass meeting at the Multi-Purpose Centre on Sunday and keynote speaker, crime researcher Irwin Kinnis, praised the initiative. Kinnis pointed out that it is an idea that should be spreading across the Western Cape. “This area, like so many others across the Cape Flats, has a proud history in the fight for freedom in this country,” he said.

“Now it is once again leading the way to a new fight against the evils that are destroying our communities. “It is no secret when crime statistics reveal how bad the problems have become, and while there are many reasons why it has become so bad, we must keep in mind the history of Bonteheuwel in the fight against apartheid. “Like those leaders and organisations that were formed here in the 1970s and ’80s you are becoming the forefront of changing the situation for the better.”

Organised gangs He also pointed out that the problems experienced in the area was not restricted to Bonteheuwel but spread to many areas be-

cause the gangs were organised across the peninsula to maintain their strongholds in the communities. “For your initiative to be successful you have to start organising better than them, you have to unite forces with organisations who have the same aims in all communities threatened by crime. “Only the people of Bonteheuwel can lead the way in making the changes in their community. If you don’t take the lead nobody is going to help you stop the violence, stop your children from taking drugs and joining the gangs. “However, remember that this struggle is not yours alone so the time has come to reach out to other areas and maybe it is also time for a major indaba across all areas to

find the solution to how communities can work together to make a positive change for the safety of our communities,” said Kinnis.

Affected by crime Brian Adams, a member of the forum, also pointed out the activities that they were busy doing in the area and how it started. He asked those affected by crime to stand up. Very few remained sitting. He said the forum was started by organisations and individuals in the community who wanted to be part of the change for the better in the area. “We are people who are intent on doing things together to make those changes,” he said.

FROM PAGE 1 “Our intention is to join hands to become one united Bonteheuwel to tackle the issues that face us - together. “We’ve already seen that in action when we held our first march through the area in February and it showed that there are so many people who want to be part of that change. “That change is already happening because we are organising participation at grassroots level, getting everyone involved area by area, street by street, and from this we will just grow stronger.” Police representatives Brigadier Christopher Jones, Major General Jeremy Veary and the Bishop Lavis cluster commander Andre Lincoln were on hand to present the latest statistics and answer questions from the public. Most of the complaints were about the shortage and visibility of policing and said gang shootings and other crimes could be prevented if policing was more effective. At the meeting, Lincoln responded to a memorandum of complaints from the Bonteheuwel Joint Peace Forum. The memorandum was given to the police during the march earlier this year, when residents demanded to see more police patrols and for gangsters to be arrested. He said he was very pleased with this initiative and other areas were now asking the people of Bonteheuwel come and show them the way by setting up similar structures. In response to some of the demands that were presented to police, he explained what actions were already being undertaken. “We have established a specialised unit that is doing special crime prevention duties over and above the regular patrols in the area. “There is also Operation Combat which is target driven investigations that investigates specific suspects for their activities relating to gangs. “Since our last discussion the relationship with the public has also improved, and people are now playing a major part in the fight against crime. “This must now continue with more people becoming involved in neighbourhood watches to make a bigger difference,” he said.

Golden voiced boy aims high GARY VAN DYK @gvdcapejazz

Nicolas Miso may be the head boy at Erica Primary in Belhar, but there is harmony in his heart that wants to shine in the Drakensberg Boys School Choir. The talent of this 13-year-old is obvious when he takes control of a microphone, and it will only be enhanced if finances can be found to help him take up the offer to attend the famed school from next year. His mother, Mbuto, is very excited about his acceptance but points out that she always knew that he wanted to sing. “He was two when he started singing,” she smiles. “We would watch him standing in front of a mirror, brush in hand for a microphone, and you just knew there was talent. “Somehow in my heart there was always that dream of him going to the choir, now it is a reality.” While he was born in Cape Town, the family moved to East London in 2008 but returned in 2012.

’n Tekort aan sentrums vir bejaardes en die groot aanvraag daarna, het ’n maatskaplike werker van Eersterivier genoop om sy huis in ’n tehuis vir bejaardes te omskep. Die Eerste River Home for the Elderly Group, wat geleë is in Alberthastraat, Forest Heights, is die inspirasie van Willie Nel, ’n jarelange maatskaplike werker en inwoner van dié gebied. Willie en sy vrou, Maureen, het 14 jaar gelede na Brittanje verhuis, waar sy vrou tans nog werksaam is.

unning thieves may be posing as parishioners at local churches to seek out their targets after a daring theft at a Bishop Lavis church. Saint Martin de Porres Catholic Church has lost its data projector after thieves broke in through the roof but their methods revealed that they must have attended a service there to know exactly where it was situated. Malcolm Swartz, a parishioner at the church, explained they had improved their security over the past two years since their solid brass bell was stolen. Nothing could have prepared them for this incident though. “We think the thieves must have been keeping a watch on the church. “Our priest went on vacation last week so there was no normal Friday morning mass and the theft was only discovered later in the afternoon. “So we think it was done during Thursday night, but its how they did it that gives us an indication that they had attended the church,” he said.

Climbers Swartz explained the thieves had climbed onto the roof and removed two asbestos sheets to gain entry into the church. “They knew exactly where to remove the sheets to get to the projector,” he said. “Then they broke through the ceiling and must have lowered somebody into the church to remove the projector. There is no way you can reach those bolts by just leaning through the opening.” He also pointed out that the thieves knew what they wanted, because they simply left the sheets there. “It looks like they had some kind of power tool to remove the screws on the sheets.” The church is offering a reward for the re-

Parow se onderrok hang uit, sê inwoners wat op verskillende plekke naby brûe bly. Dis hier waar vuilgoed net so gelos word as die “trolliemense” weggooigoed sorteer vir herwinning. “Hulle vat net wat herwin of verkoop kan word en die res los hulle net daar,” bevestig Ernest Sonnenberg, die stad se voorsitter vir vaste afvalbestuur, wat sê hy is deeglik bewus van die probleem. “Ek wil nie hê ons buurt moet so agteruitgaan nie. Ek is ’n trotse inwoner, maar op die oomblik voel ek baie negatief,” sê Chantel Brand, wat naby die Tierbergwegbrug bly en gereeld met ’n babawaentjie onder die brug moet deurloop. Sy sê behalwe dat sy daagliks moet fyn trap om nie oor ’n dooie muis of iemand se ontlasting te loop nie, het iemand nou die deurgang van die straat na die brug

met betonstene vernou, sodat sy haar baba uit die waentjie moet haal en die waentjie dan bo-oor die stene moet tel om daar te kan loop. “Ek voel die munisipaliteit vergeet gerieflikheidshalwe van die area,” sê Brand, wat elke oggend en middag onder die brug deur en dan met die trappies na Tierbergweg toe loop op pad werk toe. “Ek het vroëer vanjaar die munisipaliteit geskakel nadat daar vir weke nie skoongemaak is nie, en dit moeilik geraak het om oor al die rommel te trap wat daar lê.” “Die munisipaliteit het toe binne ’n week daar kom skoonmaak, soos belowe, maar nooit weer nie. Ek weet, want ek gebruik die trappe daagliks,” sê sy. Sonnenberg sê die munisipaliteit maak gereeld onder die brûe skoon, maar kan nie byhou met die tempo waarteen dit weer morsig raak nie. Die publiek kan die munisipale inbelsentrum by 086 0103 089 te skakel met klagtes.

New centre promises internet access for all Elsies River is set to become home to a new Digital Access Centre to bring internet access to all. The Western Cape Government, in partnership with the City of Cape Town, recently announced that a R2.8 million digital access centre is set to be launched in Elsies River. The Interactive Community Access Network (ICAN) Centre forms part of the roll out of the Western Cape Government’s R1.3 billion broadband plan to connect communities across the province over the next three years. Residents will have access to Wi-Fi hotspots, meeting rooms, video-conference facilities, training workshops, study rooms and soundproof recording booths. The initiative builds on the success of the City of Cape Town’s broadband initiative in which R222 million has been set aside over three years towards the roll out of broadband infrastructure Alan Winde. throughout the metro. This project has allowed the City and the Western Cape Government to contain and reduce spending on their internal telecommunications costs. The network has saved R47.6m in telecommunications costs and avoided R70m of bandwidth costs for 2013/2014 financial year. In turn, these savings become available for economic development initiatives such as the proposed ICAN Centre. This centre, which is a pilot project, will be located at the Elsies River Multi-Purpose Centre which will undergo substantial refurbishments in the months ahead. The centre is funded by the Western Cape Government in partnership with the City of Cape Town, which has provided the site and will manage the installation of the infrastructure and equipment.

Today, Alan Winde, Minister of Finance, Economic Development and Tourism, announced the concept, explaining that the Department of Economic Development and Tourism would open the call for NPO’s to apply to operate the centre in the next two weeks. Minister Winde said the successful NPO operator would be required to ensure that Elsies River residents are brought on board to assist with the management of the facility. “The centre will consist of open spaces for learning, innovation and knowledge production,” said Winde. “It will be a space for the entire community. Local entrepreneurs can come and grow their business ideas, learners will have a study resource space and residents will be able to further their ICT training. Key to the success of the centre will be the social entrepreneurship model. In this model, government partners with local entrepreneurs to establish and maintain public facilities. This model ensures that business opportunities are created for local emerging SMMEs.” The Centre has different zones catering for the entire community: The heart of the centre is the ICAN Community Commercial Services Zone, which provides all of the support and shared services to the other zones Various training programmes will be housed and offered at this centre with stakeholders supporting such programmes including FET Colleges, Adult Learning Centres, and Tertiary Institutions such as the University of the Western Cape. V The Department of Economic Development and Tourism will open the call for NPO’s to submit pro­ posals to run the centre in the next two weeks. Inte­ rested NPO’s can email nashreen.moosa@western­ cape.gov.za for the terms of reference.

From left, Calvin Maseko (CPUT Director of Advancement), Dr Prins Nevhatulu (CPUT Vice Chancellor), Sarfaraaz Hamza (SANZAF WC Administrator), Faeza Govind, Aneesah Rylands (SEED Coordinators), and Cornelius Claasen (CPUT Senior Financial Aid Officer).

Half a million to help students A generous donation of almost R520 000 from the South African National Zakáh Fund (Sanzaf) is enabling 59 students to pursue their studies at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT). Sanzaf’s Sarfaraaz Hamza explained during a cheque handover at CPUT’s Bellville Campus on Monday that the donation was made possible thanks to many donations called Zakáh and Sadaqát from the Muslim community in South Africa. Each year Sanzaf collects millions of rands in donations and approximately 30% of that is spent on education bursaries. “We have many graduates and staff members who have studied at CPUT and we are honoured to have been part of the institution and be able to contribute in this way,” says Hamza. “We hope that in the years to come we can grow this amount.” Vice-Chancellor Dr Prins Nevhutalu accepted the cheque saying the donation was extra special because it came straight from the heart of people. “Many of our students cannot afford to pay and I accept this gratefully with both hands because you are making a big contribution to the sustainability of the institution,” he

said. The fund was also pleased to announce that they will be handing over R3 718 839 which will afford 384 disadvantaged students in the Western Cape to study in a field of their choice at various tertiary institutions like CPUT as well as the University of the Western Cape (UWC), University of Cape Town (UCT), Stellenbosch University (SUN) as well as the Islamic Peace College of SA (IPSA). SANZAF’s cumulative national education and empowerment spend for 2014 amounts to R15.5 million which will assist up to 1005 students. In 2013, 550 students benefitted nationally from the bursary programme totalling close to R10 million. Apart from the donation to CPUT, SANZAF Western Cape has also allocated R1 058 073 to UWC for 106 students, R182 437 to UCT for 22 students and a further R248 910 at SUN for 22 students. In addition to this, R233 000 will assist 42 students at IPSA and various tertiary faith-based institutions. Needy students are strongly encouraged to obtain the balance of funding from National Students Financial Assistance Scheme (NSFAS). SANZAF believes that a tertiary qualification opens doors to a positive future by empowering individuals to aspire to a better quality of life.

Her passion for food and hospitality has made Asanda Ntanga, a single mother of two from Mfuleni, set her dreams sky high. The young mother, who had to leave school in Grade 11 due to financial constraints, has been working as a chef at one of Cape Town’s top hotels but currently has her heart and mind set on becoming a hotel manager. Asanda, originaly from the Eastern Cape, was one of the people who completed a basic chef’s course at Community Women Action (CWA) – a non-government organisation. The organisation assists troubled youngsters and people similar to Asanda in realising their hopes of becoming a chef. Asanda completed her studies of nine months towards the end of last year. Since then, she has worked at several places before landing the position as a chef at a prestigious hotel. Asked about her personal life she explained: “My dad moved back to the Eastern Cape and I stayed behind with my brother who could not afford to pay my school fees. “In 2000 I had my first child and three years later I got married, but divorced again in 2009. “I did not have a work at the time, I did not have anything. I started to work as a security guard for nine months, but after that I came to the CWA to learn how to be a chef. “It was so hard for me at that time because I had a child but did not have money.”

After receiving the certificate at CWA she started working at the Cape Town International Convention Centre and the Lagoon Beach Hotel before moving to the Cape Royale Hotel where she is currently still employed. Now Asanda has her mind set on pursuing a bigger dream. “I want to be a manager in the hospitality industry. “I came back to CWA so that they can help me.” Asanda is hoping to apply for a bursary to pay her studies. “I love to cook, I enjoy it, but I actually want to become the manager of a hotel,” Asanda said.

Major difference She feels that she has been able to make a major difference in the lives of children she has mentored. “I think that by being ‘real’ I have changed the lives of my mentees and fellow mentors. I have chosen to be conscious and openminded with my mentees and mentors. “I wanted to inform them that I know what it is like to have family from Uitsig and Malmesbury. My aim was to make them aware that you can excel beyond your present day circumstances. “My father, Gary Carolus, is formerly from Uitsig and never let his circumstances get him down. In addition, my Mom, Penelopé Carolus, taught for many years at Uitsig Primary and neighbouring schools. “Therefore I truly understood where they came from and the various challenges they faced.” Her eyes light up when she recalls the achievements of one of her mentees. “I was extremely proud of Evanney Kettledas when she matriculated with four A’s and was accepted for BCom Accounting at UWC. “I know what it is like to face hardships and to take each day as it comes. I am aware that it is tough when the only thing people say to you is “you can make it”. Yet, they fail to mention that it takes so much willpower to rise up when you live in ‘rock-bottom’.” “Therefore, when I engage with my mentees and mentors I am conscious of my actions and words. “I want to walk away from a conversation and say that I have shared in the growth of the individual academically, socially, spiritually, and simply had fun.”

Honesty “My hope is always that my fellow mentees and mentors can attest to my honest and transparent relationship. In return, I hope that it makes them realise that unemployment, retrenchment, poverty, strokes, cancer, major depression nor financial constraints can withhold them from attaining success. It only takes one toe before the other each day, since a step can feel too much at a time.” Strong words from this positive young lady who is still striving to further her education. “I am currently busy with my Masters (sociology) and would like to pursue a career in academia with a focus on education and developmental studies,” she says. “At present, I would like to engage with communities to ascertain what they find as “at risk” and how would they propose a means forward. “With this in mind I am always open to the idea of working alongside communities to determine and find possible solutions.”

Libraries celebrate reading GARY VAN DYK @gvdcapejazz

With the Inter-district reading competition for Grade 7 learner in full swing the 11th Annual Reading Competition of Valhalla Park Library was marked by a celebration of books and reading on World Book Day on Wednesday 23 April. World Book Day was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading in over 100 countries around the world. Valhalla Park Library aims to make a more social impact through the promotion of books and reading for personal enrichment and enjoyment of our communities. This reading programme and partnerships run across schools, community organizations, corporate and other government departments. The competition is a City of Cape Town Library and Information Services initiative which started at Valhalla Park Library 11 years ago. The City’s Library Services continually strives to empower communities through the access to the services and resources required for their informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs. Ward councillor Michael Britz a guest speaker at the competition emphasized the importance of parents reading to their kids from a young age and also that this competition builds learners confidence in reading, writing and public speaking. Another speaker, Izak de Vries from Lapa publishers demonstrated storytelling and

Kla by regte plekke vir verandering Vandag is elke leser hopelik in een of ander stadium by die stembus. Net soos wat dit enige regering – plaaslik of nasionaal – se plig is om te luister na die gemeenskappe wat hy dien, só is dit ons plig om verantwoordelik te kies om die regte regering in plek te stel. Te veel mense kla oor hoe oneffektief die regering is, hoe korrup hulle is, hoe hulle net na hulself kyk. Dit mag alles waar wees, maar reg oor die wêreld is dit inherent aan elke regering. Dit maak dit egter nie reg nie. Dit is ons plig om ons regerings by hul beloftes te hou, maar dan moet daar gekla word én by die regte plekke. Te veel mense kla byvoorbeeld by TygerBurger, maar het dan nog nie eens die aangeleentheid by die regte owerheid aangemeld nie. En as daar nie by ’n owerheid gekla word nie, het hulle alle rede om te glo alles is heeltemal in orde en alle kiesers is tevrede. ’n Geklaery sonder aksie van die klaer se kant af, is oneffektief en bring geen verandering nie. Geen koerant kan ook mense se persoonlike probleme oplos nie. Dis ook nie hul mandaat nie – die gemeenskap in die algemeen se belang is hul mandaat. Deurdat TygerBurger voortdurend vrae vra, die owerhede onder druk sit om antwoorde te gee oor gemeenskapskwessies, word baie probleme aangespreek. Hulle wil immers nie sleg lyk by hul kiesers nie. So, doen vandag jou plig, én hou hulle dan op hul tone. Jy het immers die reg verdien om dit te doen.

SMS V Ek wonder of mense wat gekant is teen sirkusdier-vermaak, al op TV gesien het hoe wreedaardig dieselfde dier ’n koedoe of ander wilde dier verskeur. Kla eerder oor hoe wreedaardig mens teenoor mens, mens teenoor weerlose babas of bejaardes optree of ’n regering wat mense verbied om iets daaraan te doen. ­ Wynand V Regarding rat deaths: Can someone please give me advice on humane rodent control methods. I have a problem with mouse droppings in my kitchen. It is very unhygienic. ­ AW V Ek stem saam met André: TygerBurger is ’n Afrikaanse koerant, maar dit lyk vir my hier bly net Engelssprekendes, want die hele koerant is omtrent net Engels. Baie mense het al daaroor gekla. ­ CVA V Na aanleiding van Johan Swart se klagte oor die spoedgrens in Frans Conradie (TBbriewe, 23 April). Die 70 km/h-borde is onlangs aangebring. Die spoedgrens was vir baie jare 60 km/h. Dis wel jammer dat die verkeersbeampte nie weet wat die spoedgrens veronderstel is om te wees nie. Neem die saak verder. ­ Mariana, De Tijger V Ek stem saam met André. Hoekom is meeste van die artikels in Engels? Ek glo hier is baie Afrikaanssprekende mense. Wat is die rede? Anders moet jul die TygerBurger ’n Engelse naam gee. ­ Esther V I thought this was a bilingual newspaper. Afrikaans-speakers have many newspapers. ­ Anon V The City of Cape Town office in Durbanville is consistently world class. The staff provides brilliant service. ­ Anon V Pieter, jy laat my bloed kook (30 April). Daar is geen fout met mense se pypstelsels nie; die munisipaliteit het onderneem om druk te verminder om waterpype teen barste te beskerm. ­ Yvonne, Goodwood ) SMS’e kos R1,50 elk.

Ons gee ‘rus’ nuwe betekenis ’n Gewese minister van vervoer, Hendrik Schoeman, het altyd wanneer mense gekla het oor die kos op die SALvlugte, gevra: “Wil julle vreet of wil julle vlieg?” My vraag aan die mense wat besluit oor openbare vakansiedae in Suid-Afrika, is: “Wil julle hê die arbeidsmag moet rinkink of werk? Want so het ek ons volkie nog nie gesien rinkink nie! Ondanks die hoë petrolprys was elke Jan en San Alleman op die pad na ’n “plek van rus”. Hoeveel keer wil julle nou eintlik rus? Van 18 April tot in die eerste week van Mei het julle “rus” ’n nuwe betekenis gegee! Dit nadat die skole in die eerste week van April ook gesluit was. Nee wat, produktiwiteit het die afgelope tyd nuwe laagtes bereik. En die blaam moet vierkantig op die skouers geplaas word van die mense wat oor openbare vakansiedae besluit.

Elke oggend sit ek en my kleindogter en kyk na die kamele en perdjies wat die hele terrein vol hardloop. Ons was ook by ’n vertoning en kon daarna kyk hoe die diere gevoer word.

Good service key for small businesses Anonymous, if you are a proud business owner, why did you not add your company name (“Small business feels the pinch”, TygerBurger, 23 April)? As someone who supports small businesses and a former owner, I know it does not come without hard work, ethics and values. It is, however, sad that there are so many small business owners who over-promise and under-deliver. Always very eager to accept the work, expect payment and never to be seen again. The only thing customers expect is to pay for the promised service – nothing more, nothing less – before parting with hard-earned money.

It is unfortunate that there are business owners like you or the one you referred to condoning poor work and bad practise. You say you “jump to the next job to survive”. This is why so many people are hesitant to support small businesses. Good service, products or workmanship will build a reputable business. A BASSON Email

Afrikaans moet sy regmatige plek kry Anonieme “Tevrede leser”, dit is jammer party mense is skaam vir hul regte naam by hul eie kommentaar (“Koerant bedien gemeenskap”, TygerBurger, 30 April) Dit het my ook opgeval hoe min Afrikaans in TygerBurger is – dis immers TygerBurger, nie TigerCitizen nie. Jy vra waar kry jy nog iets gratis? Ek wonder, met jou siening gaan ons seker binnekort moet vra waar kry mens nog iets in Afrikaans. Dis maklik: kyk na die leserstal. Hoeveel is Afrikaans, en gebruik dit as riglyn van hoeveel Afrikaanse berigte geplaas word. Die suksesse van byvoorbeeld moedertaalonderrig en die trefkrag van Afrikaanse advertensies is tog ’n oorbekende feit. Buitendien woon ek nog in Suid-Afrika en hier wil ek in my eie taal bedien word. Die grondwet gee my daardie reg en ek is trots op my taal. Ek wil nie in my eie Afrikaanse omgewing in ’n vreemde taal verswelg word nie. Dis nie nodig nie en ek weet dat André en ek nie alleen staan nie. Suid-Afrika het nie net een taal nie! JACO VAN DER MERWE E­pos

TygerBurger waardeer lesers se menings, maar ten einde die onafhanklikheid van die koerant te handhaaf en in billikheid teenoor alle politieke partye en kandidate, sal tot die afhandeling van die verkiesing geen brief van ‘n politieke aard geplaas word wat op een of ander wyse politieke partye en hul kandidate se standpunt propageer nie.

New policy aims to promote the arts in Cape Town

LOUISA STEYL @lounotes

A draft policy is in the making to grow Cape Town’s creative and performing arts. The City of Cape Town’s new Arts, Culture and Creative Industries draft policy is currently under review. It includes the full spectrum of the arts and creative expression ¬ from graphic design to busking, acrobatics to graffiti, and cultural heritage. In short, all forms of arts and creative work is captured in the policy. Capetonians have until 15 May to comment on the City of Cape Town’s new Arts, Culture and Creative Industries draft policy. The draft recognises the importance of the arts and creative industries and aims to promote these industries and create an economically enabling environment.

sense of belonging,” Nielson says. “The draft policy is better aligned to ensure the City’s greater recognition of cultural diversity and heritage.” While the City’s department of Arts and Culture is currently responsible for the maintenance of heritage and memorial sites and facilities, Neilson says there are talks to move this responsibility to a more specialised maintenance unit. The policy lists “persistent fragmentation” and “poor coordination” as one of the biggest challenges to the creative trade and one of the objectives of the policy is to assist with coordinating networking and partnerships in order to create more opportunities. The policy speaks of creating a database of Cape Town based performers to participate in city events. The City already has an extensive database they have been building since 1996 and in 2010, artists were invited to audition to be ad-

member for tourism, events and marketing, explains that the new policy will be an update on the Arts and Culture Policy, which was in place in 1996, under the then Cape Town Municipality. “There is a need for an updated policy that allows the City to take decisions on the support for and delivery of arts and cultural events,” Neilson says. He adds that the creative economy is becoming increasingly important for cities and around the world and that Cape Town needs an updated policy to keep up with the trend. One of the desired outcomes of the policy is to see more citizen engagement with the public life within the city, and its cultural diversity, public spaces and history. The policy speaks of creating facilities for the arts that make citizens feel “at home”. “This is part of the City’s commitment to building an inclusive city, where all residents have a stake in the future and enjoy a

ded to the list. Neilson explains that the City conducts research in neighbourhoods. They focus on arts and culture related bodies and musicians, performers and artists. “The artists are added to the database and may be drawn on by other departments to participate in events,” he says. The policy promises to market Cape Town as a “Creative Industries Hub” and recognises that the arts have an important part to play in stimulating Cape Town’s tourism and events industries. The draft policy is available for viewing at subcouncil offices and libraries or online at www.capetown.gov.za.

ATHLETICS: LOCAL LAD HAS POTENTIAL TO BRING THE MEDALS HOME

Rocco set for world stage STEHAN SCHOEMAN

R

occo van Rooyen (21) is on the right path to become one of the greatest javelin throwers this country has ever produ-

ced. This lad from Kuils River, who is a member at the Tygerberg Athletics Club, has his eyes firmly set on the world stage. At the end of last month while competing in the Western Province Top 10 club competition at the Bellville Velodrome, he recorded his personal best of 80.10m. Keeping in mind that most javelin throwers reach their peak at 28. Rocco, at the age of 21, has so much scope and time to achieve greatness that the sky is the limit for this talented youngster. For now, competing in the 19th Africa Senior Championships in Morocco from 10 to 14 August is first priority. There is also a chance he may compete in the Commonwealth Games which is to be held in Glasgow, Scotland from 23 July to 3 August.

Morocco calling Rocco “I am really looking forward to competing in Morocco. If I can do well there, I have a chance of being selected to compete in the Intercontinental Cup a month later, which is also in Morocco. “If I can accomplish that, it will be a huge honour to represent Africa against the other continents,” said Rocco confidently. If all goes according to plan, Rocco will first compete in Germany or Japan in July against strong opposition which will serve as a perfect platform for the Morocco showdown.

“I am basically awaiting confirmation for either Germany or Japan. Either way it will be great to compete just before Morocco.” When it comes to coaching, Rocco is working with one of the most respected coaches in the world, Kari Ihalainen, who is the headcoach of javelin in Finland a few years ago. “I met Kari a few years ago. He realised my talent and invited me over for two months last year for intensive training. Sometimes I can be all over the show with my throws, but Kari and I are working on my technique and back here I am working on my own with a lot of drills. Things are coming together nicely now,” he said.

Niggling injuries “As with any sport I struggle with one or two niggling injuries but it’s nothing serious. I do a lot of gym work, especially in the off-season, and when I prepare for competition my preparation involves a lot of running, work on the medicine ball and light gym work.” His goals for the future is set - travel to as many countries as possible and compete. “Competing in the Olympic Games will be the ultimate, and I believe I can reach the 90m plus mark. It will be great to say it is my job to be a professional athlete. “God gave me this talent, and it’s my responsibility to develop myself to be the best of my abilities. With God on my side, the future looks bright and I am looking forward to all the amazing possibilites that await me.” V To assist Rocco financially to achieve his goals contact him on 072 536 1342.

Rocco van Rooyen is set for the international stage.

Tygerbergklub maak stem dik in WP se Superliga-rugby SAREL BURGER Die Tygerberg-klub maak behoorlik stem dik, Bellville verras byna teen SK/Walmer en die Universiteit van Wes-Kaapland se gesukkel duur voort. Dít was die kenmerke van die afgelope naweek se Superliga-rugbywedstryde in die WP. Tygerberg het oor gans en al te veel skietgoed vir Kuilsrivier beskik en het deur

middel van ses kuiertjies agter die besoekers se doellyn met 40-15 geseëvier. Uitstekende verdediging daarenteen het Bellville so byna ’n onverwagte oorwinning oor Schotsche Kloof/Walmer besorg. SKW kon net ’n enkele keer deur die Bellvilliete se hegte keerwerk dring en moes hard spook om met ’n telling van 19-17 bo uit te kom. UWK was weliswaar met die draaislag met 7-3 voor teen Belhar, maar

die Accordeon Park-span het geleidelik die hef in die hand gekry om met 20-7 die wedstryd in sy guns te beklink. In die B-afdeling van die Superliga het Milnerton en Kraaifontein albei byna groot verrassings gelewer, maar Collegians was met 14-9 te sterk vir die Kraaie, terwyl Milnerton net-net met 20-23 teen Villager vasgeval het. Met die langnaweke verby sal al 13 span-

ne van die Tygerbergstreek weer eerskomende naweek in aksie wees. Die program (tuisspan eerste) is as volg: Durbanville/Bellville t Tygerberg, UWK t Noordelikes/Northlink-kollege, Bellville t Victoriane, Kuilsrivier t Hamiltons, Valsbaai t Belhar, Hamlets t Brackenfell, Kraaifontein t St. George, Hands & Heart t Goodwood, Macassar t Scottsdene, Milnerton t Rangers.

Spur boosts school MTB

If the early season warm-up events around the country are any indication, the 2014 Spur School Mountain Bike League is set for another record breaking season. Now in its sixth year, the Spur league has surpassed all expectations. According to league co-ordinator Meurant Botha of Amarider, 10 000 entries are possible this year. “With an average participation growth of around 40% and a jam-packed 2014 calendar with more than 50 races scheduled before the finals in Magaliesburg in October, we are set for a bumper season,” says Botha. For the first time, keen mountain bikers in the Northern Cape and Limpopo will be able to compete, with events taking place in Kathu and Kimberley to identify riders to represent the Northern Cape at the 2014 final. Limpopo is another new region where firsttime races have seen a great turnout. Botha will also be visiting the southern Cape in an effort to uncover young talent. “Depending on the development of this region this season, we’ll try select riders to attend the national final as well,” says Botha,

who has always emphasised the development of both riders and tracks to get more youngsters on bikes. Amarider is also playing a key role in terms of cycling development. Apart from rider development programmes, mountain bike tracks are being built around the country in association with regional municipalities, schools and land owners to support the sport on a regional basis. According to Spur Market Development Manager Andrew Cronje, the group is delighted to be a part of grassroots mountain biking development at school level. “We are really proud to be associated with the league as it not only provides a platform for schools to compete in a structured way, but is also playing a key role in growing mountain-biking as a sport discipline,” said Cronje. “We would love to see mountain biking acknowledged as an official school sport.” For entry details and event calendar leading up to the finals at Bekker School on 4 to 5 October, visit http://www.spur.co.za/ about-us/event/spur-mtb-league.
