BLUE DOWNS: SEVEN STATIONS AWARDED
Cluster cops are tops! RICHARD ROBERTS @richardjohn_rj
real feather in their cap. This is how Major-General Vincent Beaton (51), commander of the Blue Downs policing cluster – including Kuils River, Kleinvlei, Mfuleni, Delft, Belhar, Ravensmead and Bellville South – described several awards bestowed on his personnel recently at the police’s Prestige Awards. Beaton, who took over the reigns as cluster commander in 2010, says he is extremely proud of the men and women in the cluster who scooped several coveted awards. “I am very excited about these awards; it shows that the strategy we implemented works and now we can reap the rewards thereof,” he says. Beaton adds the employees in the cluster are all very focused, a vital skill needed to achieve success. “Over the past few months we had an increase in serious and violent crimes, mostly gang-related crimes, business and house robberies, as well as car hi-jackings. I handpicked a team of detectives myself to deal with it,” he says. The team of detectives was awarded the title Detective Group of the Year at the Prestige Awards two weeks ago at Century City. Beaton says the team targeted high flyers in the organised crime circles and worked closely with the court prosecutors to achieve their arrests and conviction successes. “The prosecutors assisted and guided us with the dockets,” he says. Some of the areas where gangs and organised criminals mostly focused on, include Kleinvlei, Mfuleni, Wesbank, Ravensmead and Delft. A large number of the criminals

are in court or in detention, with a few of them having had their bail application successfully opposed, Beaton says. The cluster also focused closely on its trio crime – including car-hijacking, business and house robbery – and had an anti-gang investigating team dedicated to deal with this as well. Asked about the awards bestowed on the cluster, he says the police management and personnel were always hopeful. Awards were also given to them for the Detective of the Year and Catch of the Year. “The standard of policing is high in the province and we were competing against 15 other clusters in the Western Cape. We had high hopes that we would receive awards as our standards are just as high in the cluster,” he says. Beaton personally congratulated the group of winners during a cluster meeting held recently at the Mfuleni Police Station. Beaton boasts 30 years of working experience in the police and moved to Cape Town from Port Elizabeth in 2001. He served as the deputy area commander in Paarl before he was transferred to various police stations across the Western Cape. He became station commander at the Bishop Lavis and Manenberg police stations and has several years’ experience and exposure at cluster level. Beaton has a national diploma in police administration and is currently studying towards his Master’s in Public Administration at the University of Pretoria. He says the awards are one way of motivating the rest of the employees in the cluster to produce more. “Hopefully we will see similar results next year,” he says.

Concern over domestic violence RICHARD ROBERTS @richardjohn_rj
nless the public refrain from getting involved in domestic violence spats, harsher consequences will be implemented in order to help stop the scourge, warn the police. Cases of assault caused by domestic violence, often spurred on by an abuse of alcohol, are a major concern in Kleinvlei and police say they have experienced a high volume of assaults over the past few months. Kleinvlei police spokesperson Captain Florina Muller says the police will have zero tolerance with regards to these crimes and work hard at trying to prevent it. “However it cannot be done alone,” she says. Muller added assault cases are getting out of hand. “Domestic violence cases are reported to us almost on a daily basis; this behaviour
must stop. “Instead of assaulting each other, rather apply for a court order at the Blue Downs Magistrates’ Court,” Muller says. In this way people can refrain from assaulting each other by using their fists, or kicking or stabbing one another, which can result in more serious matters. “Stricter bail conditions will be requested from the department of justice to ensure that this kind of behaviour in our society stops.” Liquor premises will also be visited more to ensure that the law is adhered to. “The bulk of the assault cases are domestic violence related and the culprits making themselves guilty of such an offence will face the consequences,” Muller warns. Victims of domestic violence are encouraged to apply for an interdict at court. “Tell yourself enough is enough,” she says. The police have also issued a warning
Thieves escape with tools Kleinvlei police are searching for a group of thieves after they stole tools worth about R180 000 this past weekend. The group of about five men arrived at a hardware store in Bobs Way, Eerste River on Sunday 16 October at approximately 06:40, dressed in the uniform of the store and pretending to be employees before they cleaned out the place. “A 51-year-old man working at the business noticed the men approach him, all dressed in the company’s work-wear. They asked him to open the door for them,” says police spokesperson Captain Florina Muller. It is alleged that all of the suspects worked at the business previously. “They told the worker that their ‘boss’
against an increase in robberies. People who walk alone with earphones on, listening to music, are soft targets, so are those walking with their cell phones in their hands. “Often these people are unaware of who is walking behind them,” Muller says. Robberies are also still prevalent in the bushy area near Penhill Estate. The sector commander for the area, sergeant Zenobia Fradie, will liaise with the City of Cape Town and its Law Enforcement department to ensure the safety of general workers who make use of the bridge to get to their place of work in Penhill, Muller says. A meeting was held early in September with the cluster commander, Major-General Vincent Beaton, management of the police station, the local Community Police Forum and Penhill residents to address a few safety concerns. V Call the station on 021 9028360 to report crime.

called them to come in. According to the worker the men drove two white Nissan bakkies. They started to carry out tools which included spades, picks, a petrol generator, drills, a petrol canister and a pump.” The suspects then left, never to return, said the worker. “The worker only realised then that the tools had been stolen and that they were thieves and not employees as they informed him,” Muller says. He immediately reported the incident to his supervisor. A case of theft has been opened at the Kleinvlei Police Station. V Anyone with information can contact the investigating officer, Detective Constable Eugene Fisher, on 021 902 8500.
Western Cape minister for education, Debbie Schäfer, will be paying a visit this weekend to the Beverley Park Primary School to inspect the school’s Information technology (IT) classroom. The visit is scheduled for Saturday 22 October from 10:30 to 11:30. Schäfer will be accompanied by academics from the Stellenbosch University. “The purpose of this visit is to observe the decoding IT class of our Grade 2 learners. “Our school is a pioneer institution of this initiative and it will be wonderful for the Eerste River community to be aware of this opportunity,” Julian Adams, one of the teachers, says.

Invitation to snack dance
Rohan Cloete, a Grade 7 learner at the Forest Village Leadership Academy in Eerste River, with the awards he received from the school recently.
Top learners awarded T
he Forest Village Leadership Academy honoured its top performers at an award ceremony held at the school last week. The award ceremony was held on Thursday 13 October. One of the learners who stood out on what is hailed as the ”Night of the champions”, is Grade 7 learner Rohan Cloete. The ceremony is an opportunity for the academy to award those learners who excelled academically. “We also took the chance to look at our great potential on the sport’s field and in our drama department,” says Jody Lee, head of the department for intermediate and senior phase. The night was met with great excitement from teachers, learners and parents, and thanks to an overwhelming support from the parents, it was made into a glorious evening of celebration. “A lot of preparation had gone into making this event as spectacular as the one held last semester. The most stunning aspect as you walked into a beautifully decorated hall was the stage, adorned with a long table
filled with donated and sponsored trophies and shiny plaques. This again showed how much people in the community and helping hands across South Africa care about our Forest Village Leadership Academy,” Lee says. According to him they started the night with an overview of the year. As the learners came to the stage to receive their awards, the teachers beamed with pride as they handed over certificates and trophies. The formalities were interjected with entertainment by the learners – from song to dance to drama. Forest Village learners were showing off all their talents. As the night drew to an end and the Grade 7s received their academic awards, the hall erupted with shouts of excitement and pride as Rohan Cloete, one of the top achievers, walked off with trophy after trophy. “His complete humility and surprise when he also received the principal’s award was touching to watch,” Lee adds. The night ended with a look towards the future and the announcement of the 2017 prefects.

Blue Downs cluster police net 661 suspects This past weekend was a fruitful two days for the police in the Blue Downs cluster following the arrest of 661 suspects. The suspects were arrested on various charges. Sergeant Nozuko Matyobeni, a cluster spokesperson operations were executed across the cluster. The police confiscated 195 litres of alcohol over the weekend and 180 people were arrested in connection with drug-related crimes.
The police also managed to confiscate mandrax tablets with an estimated street value of R7000, tik worth R4100 and dagga with an estimated street value of R1425. On Saturday 15 October, no less than 35 drunk drivers were arrested by Mfuleni police. The Blue Down cluster consists of the Mfuleni, Kuils River, Kleinvlei, Delft, Belhar, Bellville South and Ravensmead police precincts.
Man gets 22 years for three murders Mfuleni police are celebrating the successful conviction of a 21-year-old man on murder charges. Police spokesperson Captain Nomathemba Muavha says on Wednesday 12 October the Cape Town High Court sentenced Ntandazo Yekizulu – also known as “Ntara” – to a total of 22 years of direct imprisonment on three counts of murder. “He was sentenced to 12 years direct imprisonment for one murder, another 12 years for a second murder and a further 22 years’ direct imprisonment for a third murder case,” Muavha says. The sentences will run concurrently. The first murder took place on 1 November 2014 when a 40-year-old man was stabbed in the head and throat in Nosipho Street in the
Bardale informal settlement in Mfuleni. A day later a 22-year-old man was murdered in Mbilo Street, Extension 6, Mfuleni. The victim was stabbed in the chest and the eye. The third murder occurred on the same day, this time in Olifant Street, Mfuleni. The victim was stabbed in the neck, Muavha says. Acting station commander, LieutenantColonel Fred Jacobs, says he welcomes the sentence by the court and thanks the community for the courage they showed in standing up against law breakers. He further extends his appreciation to the investigation officer, Constable Nicholas Mdawe, who worked tirelessly, leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that Yekizulu remained behind bars since the arrest on 5 November 2014.
Devastating fire leaves five people homeless Two informal structures were recently destroyed in a blaze in Wesbank, leaving several people without a roof over their heads. The fire broke out on Wednesday 12 October, says the City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Services. Spokesperson, Liezl Moodie, says their services were dispatched to the scene at approximately 15:15. “The City’s Fire and Rescue Services responded to a dwelling fire at number 8 Gal-
berry Street, Wesbank. Two wood and iron structures were destroyed.” No injuries were reported, but the fire left five people displaced. “Our resources were dispatched from the Kuils River and Mfuleni fire stations,” Moodie says. . A second fire destroyed another dwelling on Sunday 9 October, this time in Ouplaas Crescent, Wesbank. No more information was available.

Station receives R54m revamp
he newly upgraded park-and-ride facility at the Eerste River train station will hopefully bring some relief to commuters who are forced to travel early in the morning or late at night. The parking area at the station as well as the pedestrian and cycle routes were upgraded recently by the City of Cape Town at a cost of R54 million. A similar upgrade was undertaken at the Kuils River train station, where these facilities have since its completion been utilised to the maximum by residents. A significant number of residents from Eerste River also travel by rail to avoid the congestion on the main arterial routes during peak-hour traffic. Many of them live far from the station and are compelled to park their private vehicles at the station. Until recently there was an insufficient number of parking bays at the station – something which is now hopefully a thing of the past. In a statement issued last week, the municipality’s transport authority, Transport for Cape Town (TCT), said the City has a total of 68 park-and-ride facilities at railway stations with more than 3600 parking bays available for motorists. These bays are used by commuters who do not live within walking distance of the stations and need a safe space to park their vehicles before continuing with the rest of their commute by train. “The City commenced with the project in Eerste River in May 2014 after we conducted a survey which found that the park-and-ride
facility at the train station in Stasie Road did not have enough parking bays, resulting in motorists parking illegally in side streets or on vacant land. We also found that pedestrians and cyclists did not have safe routes to and from the station. As such, we embarked on a two-year project to address these insufficiencies,” said Brett Herron, the City’s Mayco member for the TCT. The first phase of the project entailed the upgrading of walkways and shared facilities. This included walkways wide enough for use by pedestrians and cyclists. The upgrades also focused on safety and universal access, which included dropped kerbs and tactile paving, for road users with special needs. The design and layout of the walkways and shared facilities also had to be changed to improve the pedestrian links between the Eerste River central business district and the station precinct. “The project was completed a few days ago when we added another 52 new parking bays to the existing 100 bays at the park-andride facility. “Residents who live too far away to walk to the station can park at the park-and-ride free of charge and for as long as they need to. The purpose of park-and-ride facilities is to make it easier and more convenient for motorists to swop their private vehicles for public transport. These facilities are very popular – in fact, the average occupancy rate of the 68 facilities across the city is above 80% on any given week day,” Herron said.

Charmaine Zaaiman (61), eienaar van die Zaaiman-taxi- en busdienste in Wattle-slot en Briar-rylaan, is Saterdag 15 Oktober om 09:00 vanuit die AGS-Kerk in die woonbuurt begrawe. Zaaiman is die week vantevore op Sondag 9 Oktober oorlede. Volgens familielede was sy ’n diabeet en het sy die afgelope tyd met hoë bloeddruk geworstel. ’n Lid van die gemeente het Zaaiman se naam Saterdag beskryf as ’n naam wat sinoniem is met Blackheath. Sy is ook beskryf as iemand wat altyd vir ander omgegee het, ’n persoon met ’n goeie hart en is bestempel as ’n besonderse mens. Zaaiman, wat in Mowbray in die Kaap se voorstad grootgeword het, het jare gelede kort ná haar troue na Blackheath verhuis.

USB again chosen as top business school
Chronic meds now available at clinic W
esbank residents will be relieved to hear they no longer have to travel to neighbouring Delft to collect their chronic medication. Those who struggle with chronic illnesses can now collect their prescriptions from the local Wesbank Clinic in Silversands Road in Wesbank. The change comes after a series of complaints were received by the newly elected ward councillor, Ricardo Saralina, of people having to walk far to get their medicine. Last week Saralina said senior citizens reported that they have to collect their chronic medicine each month at the Delft Day Hospital and that they have to cross the R300 highway footbridge to get

Employers participating in the Professional Management Review (PMR.africa) survey have ranked the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) as the top business school yet again – with a score even higher than the past two years. The respondents are employers of MBA graduates and students. This is the fifth consecutive year this hon-
there. “They are being robbed of their money and their medicine,” Saralina said. He added: “Following my communication with the Mayco member for health, Siyabulela Mamkeli, and nurse Marande Maree at the Wesbank Clinic, we concluded that the seniors of Wesbank can collect their chronic medicine in Wesbank,” he said. He said patients have to indicate at the Delft Day Hospital that they want to collect their chronic medicines at the Wesbank Clinic, so prescriptions will be sent to Wesbank Clinic by the courier company on Wednesdays. Patients can then collect their medication on a Friday from 08:00 to 11:00.
our has been bestowed on the USB in the annual PMR survey of accredited business schools offering MBA degrees. The business school’s MBA graduates and students received a scoring of 8.22 out of a possible 10.00 from employers – an improvement on last year’s 8.16 and 8.00 in 2014.

Wesbank unites through sport S
everal attempts have been made to help get children off the streets and keep them safe in the crime-ridden area of Wesbank. One of the ways implemented recently by community workers was to use sport – not just as a way to help occupy the young ones, but also as a mechanism to bring forth change. To this end, a sports day was held on Saturday 1 October, arranged by the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention (CJCP), an organisation under the umbrella of the department of social development. This department regularly works
with dysfunctional families and problem kids. Anthea Davids, a family preservation project manager at CJCP, said the organisation collaborated with the Wesbank United Netball Club to host the Wesbank United Netball Challenge on the day. “The focus was to unite the community by using sport as a medium to promote change and unity in the community, where there has recently been an influx of gang violence and crime. “The children are exposed to many evils on a daily basis that restricts them from participating and being involved in social and recreational activities,” Anthea said. “It for this reason that the netball club manager, Sharon Tieties, highlighted the need to fight back and create a space where young people can come and interact with one another, participate in sport by showcasing their talent and have a positive event that young and old can engage in.” The day started with a performance by the New Generation Youth Cadets, the singer Soekie West and Ou Polony who rapped some of his songs. Sharon gave a motivational talk to the youth about participating in sport as a means to keep them off the street and out of trouble; inspiring them to work hard The winners on the day were the junior team of and achieving the imthe Wesbank United Netball Club. possible as there is a
lot of undiscovered talent in Wesbank. “She motivated the parents to take a stand and encourage the children to do something with their lives and echoed the netball club slogan, which is ‘A child in sport is one less in court’,” Anthea said. “The attendees appreciated it very much as they could have fun without being fearful. Only a few netball teams displayed their talent, even though the entire community was invited to attend as a means to unite the community.” The winners on the day were the junior team of Wesbank United Netball Club. The event was attended by approximately 200 people. The children had fun on a jumping castle and were also served a plate of food, Anthea said. “We would like to thank all our sponsors and volunteers that assisted on the day; your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks for partnering with us to make a difference,” she said.
About 200 children attended the netball challenge in Wesbank recently and were given party packs at the event.

Tenth anniversary celebrations at a car rental company in Airport Industria means more mobility for a project in Woodstock with a special message. Ten years ago Colin Aranes and his wife, Una, started Drive Direct and over the years their success has been benefitting a number of projects across the peninsula. This time they had a special present for the Message Trust – a new car to carry on the organisation’s good work. The Message Trust is an organisation, based in Woodstock, which reaches out to young people, seeking to break the cycle of poverty, unemployment, gangsterism and crime that negatively impacts the youth in communities across Cape Town. Accepting the car on behalf of the organisation, administration and fundraising manager, Luleka Domo, thanked the company’s staff for the donation. She also explained some of the charity’s activities in the community. One of its projects is called the message enterprise programme (MEP) that aims to unlock the positive potential of young men in prison. “This wonderful gift will help us to empower them to become world changers,” she said at the handover. “They will multiply and in turn

Through this project we seek to break the cycle of unemployment, crime and recidivism.” Another project is called “gangstar enterprises”, which helps
youth out of prison who have graduated the MEP programme, providing employment opportunities, mentorship and entrepreneurial support. There is also the “Eden project”, which is a partnership between local churches and teams of dedicated youth workers, committed to making a differ-
ence in the places where they live. The trust’s “creative mission” programme includes music, drama, sports and other ways to engage youth. “We do this through our creative band KineticIV and our work at schools running lifeskills and educational workshops,” adds Domo.
Pastor Terence Europa, guest speaker at the handover event, described the Aranes couple as passionate about caring for their community. “This is especially true for Colin, who came from running a shebeen in Eerste River to giving so many a second chance,” he said. “The two of them would create jobs and business opportunities for individuals who would have found it difficult to be employed in the private sector due to the destruction drugs have caused to them. “There are records of individuals that were helped to get their learner’s and driver’s licences. Some have even become driving instructors and there are others who have moved on to better opportunities after they were given the opportunity to use Drive Direct as a spring board to a new beginning in life. “With this gift they are giving the Message Trust the chance to be the driving force guiding young people to a positive path.” Colin Aranes was humble in response to these accolades. “I would like to give back to the community that I robbed,” he said. “Alcohol destroys lives and rips families apart. Children are separated from their parents and parents from their families. “I have destroyed the lives of so many families and this is my way of giving back to them.’’

Kuils River trees draped in pretty pink
Several trees along the streets in Kuils River have been draped in pink to help raise awareness about cancer.
o help raise awareness of breast cancer in October, several trees along the streets of Kuils River have been draped in pink material. The project is done in collaboration with Pink Trees for Pauline, a non-profit organisation. The vision of the project is to wrap as many trees as possible with pink material during the month of October, thereby creating a “pink” town that will focus attention on cancer and cancer awareness, says Annie Smith, project coordinator of the awareness campaign in Kuils River.

Hy maak musiek terwyl koeëls fluit AVRIL FILLIES
edroom Productions is nie dit wat dadelik in jou gedagtes opkom nie, maar is die platemaatskappy van Tommy Jooste (63), een van die oudste inwoners van Heatherly-hof in Scottsdene. Dis een van die berugste woonstelblokke in Scottsdene, maar hy het sy musiek voortgesit so tussen die koeëls wat daar rondfluit. Bedroom Productions het in 2015 die lig gesien nadat hy tydens ’n optrede gekla het van pyne in sy bors en hy sleg begin voel het. Sy suster, Theresa, het hom na die naaste dokter gehaas, waar aan hom gesê is dat hy ’n hartaanval gehad het. “Ek kon vir ses maande nie optree nie, want ek was bedlêend. “Omdat musiek my lewe was, het ek so tussen die lakens en my kop-

kussing my eerste CD die lig laat sien. Jy moet onthou ek het baie optredes gehad voor die hartaanval en het opgetree by die Golden Valley Casino op Worcester, Oostenberg Lodge in Kuilsrivier saam met wyle Ricardo, en in eenmanvertonings in Wynberg en Somerset-Wes. “Sedert vyfjarige ouderdom het ek gesing en my oorlede pa, Adam, van Jamestown by Stellenbosch, het my aan musiek voorgestel. “Ek woon nou al 42 jaar in Kraaifontein en my vierde CD word in Januarie uitgereik. Ná die hartaanval was ek ses weke in die Tygerberg-hospitaal en daarna vir ses maande bedlêend by die huis. “Omdat ek nêrens kon optree nie en in die bed moes bly, het ek besluit om my eie produksiemaatskappy te begin en dis waar Be-
droom Productions sy naam vandaan kry. “My singery het my van Maandag tot Maandag besig gehou en eintlik moes ek nie verbaas gewees het dat ek die hartaanval gekry het nie. Dit was my liggaam se manier om te sê ek moet nou briek aandraai. Tot op hede het ek al drie CD’s uitgebring en ek gebruik alledaagse gebeure om liedjies te skryf. “Al die liedjies is my eie op die CD’s, maar as ek optree, doen ek gewoonlik sing-a-long-songs wat my gehore ken en lustig mee kan saamsing,” vertel hy. Volgens hom is musiek maar deel van die bruin mense en elke sanger wou in ’n orkes speel, sing of sy eie orkes begin. “Langarm is mos maar ons bruinmense se forté en ek het ook my eie langarm-orkes gehad, naamlik No Limits, wat baie gewild was in die tagtigerjare. “Ek kan nog onthou dat wyle Melvin Whitebooi my aan die publiek bekendgestel het in sy rubriek, Pop met Melly, in Die Burger-Ekstra en Rapport-Ekstra. Ek het aanvanklik musieklesse vir die kinders in Kraaifontein aangebied, maar die optredes oral in die Wes-Kaap het later te veel geword, sodat ek die klasse moes opskort. “Ek is nou weer beskikbaar om musiekklasse aan te bied en ouers wat voel dis nader aan die huis, kan my kontak,” het hy gesê. Die Invaders van Uitenhage was baie gewild in die Wes-Kaap en die lede het gereeld by hulle op Jamestown by Stellenbosch kom kuier. “Ek kan onthou dat almal oor die Kersseisoen uitgesien het om te

gaan kampeer op Diasstrand, want dis gewoonlik waar die Invaders opgetree het. Dis nog net Joe Moses van die Invaders wat lewe en hy het ook ’n dubbel-CD uitgereik ter ere aan sy medelede. Volgens Joe het die Invaders hulle bestaan te danke aan Cliff Richard en die Shadows se besoek in 1961 aan die Kaap, maar ek het eers in 1965 van hulle bewus geword toe hulle in die Kaap kom optree het,” vertel hy. Volgens Tommy is dit nie vir hom moeilik om liedjies te skryf nie. “Baie mense het al aan my gesê dat hulle die musiek kan maak, maar nie die lirieke kan skryf nie. “Dalk is dit net ’n gawe wat ek het om iets uit die daaglikse lewe in woorde en musiek te omskep. “Dit is iets soortgelyks aan die ‘moppie’, ’n komiese liedjie wat die Maleierkore ook uit daaglikse gebeure opmaak vir die koorkompe-
tisies wat jaarliks in Desember en Januarie gehou word. My gewildste liedjie wat mense tans geniet, is “Pasop, Meneer” op my jongste CD, Nou ja toe, wat handel oor die jollery wat deesdae nie eers meer snaaks is nie,” vertel hy laggend. Wanneer hy ontspan, gewoonlik op Sondae, luister hy na opera want dit is soothing vir sy siel. “Ek wil ons mense wys daar is ’n weg, al lyk die opdraand hoe swaar. Ek het jarelange ondervinding as producer en het my eie toerusting gekoop om opnames uit my slaapkamer te maak. Die CD’s is langarm en liefdesliedjies, wat my na aan die hart lê. “Ek wil die mense van Kraaifontein wys dat al word jy deur talle struikelblokke gepootjie, jy weer kan opstaan,” het Tommy gesê V Rig navrae oor musieklesse en sy CD’s aan hom by 073 787 0707.
Group hosts music fest Making students musically literate and giving them an ability to apply these skills practically on a musical instrument is the main aim of the Elsies River Music Development Group (ERMDG). The non-profit organisation offers their skills to people who originate from previously disadvantaged areas including Delft, Belhar and Elsies River. Tiana Jansen, music director of the organisation, says these areas are rife with gangster-related crimes, teenage pregnancy and drug abuse. “We offer an alternative to the elements in these areas by offering music lessons at no cost on Saturday afternoons,” she says. Jansen says ERMDG was established in 2014 and since being established has achieved many milestones. “The biggest achievement of the group was when all students who wrote the
UNISA grade one theory examination obtained distinctions. Since inception, the group has produced approximately thirty musicians and has performed at churches, fundraisers, shopping centres and homes of individuals,” she says. In 2015, the group started a tradition to hold an annual music festival to give students an opportunity to display the skills they have been taught throughout the year. Jansen says as a non-profit organisation funding is limited and encourages anyone who is interested in supporting them to make contact with her. ERMDG will be featuring the Heideveld Wind Band at their music festival which will take place on Saturday 26 November at the Matroosfontein Civic Centre at 18:00 at a cost of R25 per person. For more information contact Jansen on 071 715 9745 or Talitha on 082 459 8071.

Finding light in the dark corridors of life ANDRÉ BAKKES
he dark corridors of life hide many demons. How does it feel to have nothing – no hope, no light, no love, no food, no dignity? In February this year a 50-year-old man from Parow was fishing at a tranquil dam in Durbanville. He had casted nine rods and was waiting patiently for that first fish to take a bite when he saw a boy and his family. Soon he talked to the boy who seemed fascinated with fishing. He told him that if his dad can successfully cast three times into the dam, he would give the boy a rod, hooks, bait and a fishing net, which he can keep forever. The dad acquiesced and a short while later the boy caught a huge fish with his secondhand rod. He looked proudly at his fish and then saw the laughing stranger nod his head approvingly. “See, this is what I want to do,” says the man from Parow. Last week Andes Gillion called TygerBurger to find out more about an elderly couple mentioned in the article “Car couple struggles in search of home” (TygerBurger 12 October), but instead it was the newspaper who found out more about Andes. He dreams of helping the helpless... of empowering the vulnerable; of finding hope where, at first, there appears to be nothing but unimaginable terror just lurking in the shadows. “A few months ago I met a homeless man who lived in a shelter in Woodstock. His wife and two children were living in a lounge in Table View. When I met the woman she was very depressed, because she did not have money to feed her children. I gave her money and she said she’d pay it back. I said I didn’t operate that way. If she had to pay it back then I’m not filling that hole with soil,” says Andes. “I asked her if she was in a dark tunnel
Andes Gillion from Parow has managed to find the light where there was never supposed to be any light at all. PHOTO: ANDRÉ BAKKES and whether she’s been praying to find relief out of this tunnel. She answered yes. She only saw darkness. I then said her prayers have been answered, because I am with her in the tunnel and all I can see is light! I also told her I saw her, her husband and their children living in a house in Parow.” On 1 June this year, the day Andes, his wife and his son moved into their new home in Parow, the homeless family moved in with them. Andes inspires people, but dreams of empowering them to set their lives on a better path. One might wonder what one man who sees only light can say to someone stuck in pitch black darkness. What does this former busi-
ness analyst know about suffering, after all? “When I went for psychiatric evaluation the woman just looked at me and asked me why I haven’t committed suicide yet. She said no-one could go through what I have gone through without killing themselves.” Andes was just six years old when he was sent to live in an orphanage. “I was an abused child and my mother was also horribly abused by my stepfather. She tried to kill us (Andes and his two brothers) because she didn’t know what to do with us. So we constantly ended up in hospital. She fed us sleeping pills... Tried to chop our heads off; stab us. We were put in a children’s home, a prison, in Port Elizabeth. “It was their priority to get the 90 children

out to families so that they can go on holiday themselves. They farm the children out to whoever can take them, so many of the children were sent to abusive families. They gave me up to this ‘God-sent angel from heaven for ‘holiday week’. I’ll never forget this. This highly religious man, a Methodist, gave me a lot of alcohol one night and then early the next morning – on my 14th birthday – I had the most fearful experience of my life. I lay there, my blood running cold, as cold as ice, through every single vein in my body. I lay there with my eyes closed while this man was abusing me.” Despite Andes being molested by a “man of God”, he emphasises that God must not be judged. “It wasn’t God’s will. It wasn’t God doing it. Actually God was suffering more than me when I was abused. He detested and hated it more than me while it was happening!” After Andes left the children’s home he went to the army, and two years later he found himself standing on the side of the road, with nothing but his clothes. He had no idea how to operate in the real world. As close to destitute as can come, Andes went to the one person who could educate him about how the world works – the very same man who molested him as a 14-yearold. “On the one hand he abused me, but on the other hand he could teach me. I chose to focus on the good, rather than the bad,” he says. “The same can be said of my mother. She had her challenges and thought she did what was best for her children. I watched my stepfather trample her hips so badly that she could never stand and walk again.” Andes has a dream – a dream to teach people how to overcome the bumps in the road. He dreams of empowering the homeless and hopeless, of teaching them how to fish instead of merely giving them one. And he is well on his way to change the world.

Online trio ready to take the stage LOUISASTEYL @lousteyl
ou’ve probably already seen their faces plastered all over your Facebook timeline, but the three Cape Town singers who’ve been causing a stir online have something much bigger up their sleeves. Mitchell’s Plain’s Anray Amasure, Paarl’s Felicity Kiran and Bellville’s Lauren-Lee Bock have had a busy month since a video of the trio performing their unique Capetonian take on Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” during a rehearsal was posted on Facebook. With more than 200 000 views on Facebook, their version, Felicity Kiran which they call “Stap Links” (walk left) was created by director Ramaine Barreiro-Lloyd, and offers just a small taste of the music on offer in the upcoming production Woman2Woman. The three will be performing the show, with guests Karen Kortje and Ruyterwacht’s Cole Adams and the Winston Siljeur Project at the Grace Performing Arts Centre in Parow on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 October. Winston Siljeur is the musical director. “The show is basically a celebration of women, of who we are: our weaknesses, our strengths and the things we relate to,” Anray explains. Ramaine is quick to add that it’s not a “man-bashing” production. “People immediately think: ‘Ooh, it’s a women’s show, they’re going to rip men to shreds’. It’s not that; it’s just from a woman’s perspective.” Woman2Woman spawned from an idea
Lauren-Lee and Felicity’s manager had to stage a big production. Once they pulled Anray and Ramaine on board they realised they had the opportunity for a show that celebrates femininity and that female artists can work together without competition. “In society today, sadly, women are the ones who are bashing women,” Anray points out. “It’s sad that, that is what it comes to.” With Ramaine’s direction and the girls’ theatre background, Woman2Woman uses an element of drama to get its message across. “We don’t want to be just standing in the middle of the stage with a microphone,” Anray quips. Instead, the cast will be interacting with their audience, performing choreography and going through costume changes. “It’s very real in the sense that we explore things we’ve all been through.” There will also be something for everyone, with music ranging from the 1920s to current pop, all with a special touch of magic.

tions overseas and Lauren-Lee raised more than R100 000 in the UK earlier this year when she performed in aid of the Kendal flood victims. For this show though, Ramaine says she’s pushing them outside of their comfort zones. “I believe that I have a gift of finding strength in artists that they don’t know about and what I do is bring that out.” For Lauren-Lee that meant trying her hand at acting and immersing herself into a character to the point of tears, while Anray found putting her “sexiness” on display and exposing her vulnerability challenging. Ramaine adds that artists sometimes take for granted how performing comes so naturally to them. “Watching young artists finally learning how to do it and seeing the transition is big.” Because the show takes place in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the women have decided to use their voice for a cause and proceeds from Woman2Woman will be donated to the non-profit organisation Cansa. The evenings will also feature a raffle with prizes including signed sports memorabilia, meals and beauty treatments up for grabs. There have already been requests for the show to tour to Johannesburg, but for now, the women are focusing on making their performance next week a spectacular celebration. V Tickets for the shows are available at Computicket. Visit the RBL Productions Facebook page to watch rehearsal videos for a taste of what to expect.

TYGERBURGER Eersterivier & Blue-Downs 15
Agttal deins nie terug SAREL BURGER
lle eer aan die rugbyspan van Durbanville-Bellville se veel ligter voorhoede wat die afgelope Saterdag die aanvoorwerk gedoen het vir die oorwinning van 2719 oor Evergreens in die nasionale klubkampioenskap-toernooi om die Goue Beker. Met hierdie sege oor die kampioenspan van die Suidwestelike Distrikte het die Durbies deurgedring na die halfeindronde die komende naweek. Durbell kom nou op sy tuisveld te staan teen Valsbaai, die WP-kampioen, terwyl twee Gautengse spanne, Rustenburg Impala en Brakpan, mekaar in die ander halfeindstryd sal aandurf. In ’n besonder fisieke kragmeting, waarin die Evergreens van Pacaltsdorp, George onder meer met vier geelkaarte gestraf is, het die Durbies hulle nie deur die geweldige swaar voorhoede van die besoekers laat intimideer nie. En wonderlike nuus vir die Durbanvillers is dat hulle beseringsgewys rede-
lik ongeskonde uit die stryd gekom het sodat hulle Valsbaai met hul beste beskikbare span kan pak. Durbell se voorspelers het hul uitstekend van hul taak gekwyt en het nooit tru gestaan vir die geniepsige spel van die Evergreensmanne nie. ’n Faktor waarmee die tuisspan wel deeglik te kampe gekry het, was die hardnekkige verdediging van Evergreens. Ná ’n rustydvoorsprong van 17-9 het Durbell die meeste aanvalswerk in die tweede helfte gedoen, maar dit was net voor die eindfluitjie dat die Durbies eers – met ’n enkele verdere drie – ’n oorwinning kon verseker. Durbanville-Bellville het eweneens puik verdedig en het die besoekers net vir een drie in die hele wedstryd laat deurglip. Die Durbies het drie keer agter Evergreens se doellyn gaan draai. In ’n ongewone stap sal die halfeindstryde in dié kompetisie eers Sondag afgehandel word om (TV-gewys) nie te bots met Saterdag se Curriebeker-eindstryd nie.
Brakke en Kraaie swoeg hard SAREL BURGER Brackenfell en Kraaifontein se senior krieketspanne moes die afgelope naweek hard werk om op die wenpad te bly in die Boland se topligas. Brackenfell (176) het in die Premierliga duidelik nie sy beste voet voorgesit nie voordat hy Vredenburg/Saldanha (160) met 16 lopies geklop het. Stephan Joubert (51 en 3/22), Manrich Kotze (31), Christiaan Mocke (3/28) en Johan Loubser (3/33) het die beste ver-
toon vir die Brakke. In die Promosieliga het Kraaifontein (111/4) Saterdag wel maklik met Clanwilliam-Essex (110) klaargespeel – danksy veral Jonathan Clark (56*) en Fabian Faro (3/22), maar in ’n tweede wedstryd Sondag het dit maar broekskeur gegaan voordat die Kraaie (127/9) met ’n eenpaaltjie-oorwinning teen Worcester United (126) deurgeskuur het. Cody Poole (69*), Faro (3/12) en Grant Isaacs (3/18) het die grootste aandeel in die oorwinning gehad.

Bellville sit stewig in die saal teen die Kaapstad-klub in die eerste reeks tweedaagse eersteliga-krieketwedstryde in die WP, maar die meeste ander topspanne van die Tygerbergstreek het al beter dae beleef. Bellville (155/8) het ’n wenvoorsprong teen Kaapstad (64) ná blink bydraes deur veral Lenert van Wyk (72 en 3/1) en Dewald Botha (33). Maar die Universiteit van Wes-Kaapland (149/8) het nog ’n bult om te klim teen die WPklub (233/5 gesl.), ondanks hardnekkige kolfwerk deur Sharn Gomes (63). Dieselfde geld vir Durbanville (102/3) in sy wedstryd teen Claremont (228./9 gesl.). Byron Boshoff (55*) en Kuda Samunderu (3/20) het die beste vertoon. Edgemead (140) het ’n agterstand teen Avendale (159 en 83/2), maar Justin de Jager (5/37), Johan Swart (3/29) en die Nieu-Seelander San Blansord (46*) het hul kant gebring. In Kuilsrivier (161) se wedstryd teen Groenpunt (205/7 gesl.) het Craig Ephraim (67) die beste vertoon. In Sondag se 20/20-wedstryde was Bellville (197/7) met 40 lopies aan die wenkant teen Claremont, Kuilsrivier (108/5) met 5 paaltjies teen Victoria en Milnerton (77/2) met 8 paaltjies teen Tygerberg-klub. Durbanville (150/5) het onverwags met 10 lopies verloor teen Kaapstad, terwyl Edgemead (64) ook met 116 lopies ’n pak slae teen die Universiteit van Kaapstad gekry het.
PGA helps get young golfers hooked The PGA of South Africa has piloted a radical new youth golf coaching programme that is sweeping across Europe with great success. The goGolf programme aims to get children hooked on golf and keep them there by using inclusive learning techniques and embracing the use of technology such as smartphones and Apps. “goGolf really encourages the social aspect of golf and is based on group interac-
tion,” says Andrew Gunn, PGA of South Africa’s education and training manager. “The methodology empowers the coach to be a facilitator to learning rather than a dictator of technique. “Many children start playing golf early and are keen, but then life gets in the way and they lose interest as they get older. This is a common problem across all sports, and is addressed by goGolf.” According to Gunn, goGolf takes young as-
pirant golfers onto the course in their first session so that they are immersed in the game straightaway. “Then from here on they can choose how they want to progress,” says Gunn. The programme was presented at the PGA of South Africa’s recent coaching conference by Tony Bennett, the training and membership director of the PGAs of Europe. A total of 17 PGA of South Africa profes-
sionals have signed up for the goGolf pilot programme in South Africa, and are already seeing the benefits. “The course was inspiring and gave me a new appreciation of the learning process whereby learning golf becomes a marvellous act of self discovery,” said PGA head coach Martin Briede. “I have been applying the philosophy with my students and have had a very enthusiastic response.”

Smile 90.4FM BASEBALL: BELLVILLE PLAYS BALL
VOB â€˜hitsâ€™ homerun
arsity Old Boys (VOB), with a much improved performance, surprised arch rivals Athlone Aâ€™s 3-1 at the Vangate Sports Complex in Athlone on Sunday. In a closely contested game, VOB scored a run each in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings off the pitching of Dean Jacobs, one of three Athlone pitchers who represent South Africa. In all three innings, VOB recorded single hits while Athlone made an error, meaning that all of VOBâ€™s runs were unearned. Athlone made six errors in total compared to VOBâ€™s one. Aâ€™s managed to get a run back in the seventh inning. VOB somewhat surprised everyone when it started with former Silvertree and Aâ€™s pitcher Josh Rich. Rich did very well in his 4.2 inning start, giving away a hit and no runs, while walking two batters, striking out three. He was replaced by regular starter Grant Robertson, who conceded a hit and a run in his two-inning stint. Michael Scritten closed the last 2.1 inning and gave up a hit and a walk. Before Jacobsâ€™s turn on the mound, Aâ€™s started with Lloyd Stevens, who walked a batter and struck out four in his four-inning stint. Carl Michaels closed out the last two innings for Athlone. Bothasig pip Crusaders Crusaders put up a better display when they went down 5-2 to Bothasig at the Abe Sher sports ground in Bothasig. Crusaders started with another one of their youthful pitchers, Kyle van der Ross. Van der Ross pitched three innings, giving away four hits and four walks, while conceding three runs. Bothasig started with Damon Mitchell, who also threw three innings, giving up three hits and three walks and striking out three hitters without conceding any runs. In the top of the fourth inning Jordi King replaced Mitchell but struggled. King only managed one out while giving three walks and conceding two
runs, making the score 3-2 to Bothasig. Lucien Swartz replaced Van der Ross in the bottom of the fourth inning and kept Bothasig scoreless until Bothasig managed to score its final two runs in the seventh inning. Devon Clarke threw the last five innings for Bothasig, giving up a hit and striking out six Crusaders hitters. Dayle Feldtman (3/4) and Nicholas Eagles (2/4) hit well for Bothasig, while Van der Ross (2/3) and Ashwin Kleintjies (2/4) did well for Crusaders.
Giants smash Durbanville Maitland Giants outhit Durbanville 13 hits to three to record an 18-4 win in Durbanville. Home runs by Jayde Thorne (3/4) and Kyle Inglis (2/3) set up the Maitland offence. They were well supported by Brad Erasmus (2/3), Argentine Juan Martin (2/3) and Ryan Sarmie (2/4). Durbanville used four pitchers who found it very difficult to stem the Maitland run onslaught. Damien Perkins, Kevin Townend, Darryn Smith and Brandon Smith were all given a tough time by the Maitland hitters. Jas Shergill, Maitlandâ€™s Canadian pitcher, and Jayde Thorne kept the Durbanville bats quiet by only conceding three scattered hits. Two big innings â€“ the fourth and sixth â€“ set up Maitlandâ€™s victory. Bellville shut out Westridge After a promising start, Westridge Yankees faltered to go down 10-0 to Bellville at the PP Smit sports ground. After four and a half innings Westridge were 1-0 down. Luwayne du Plessis threw 4.1 innings, conceding four runs from five hits and two walks and struck out two. He was replaced by Jared du Plessis, who got the two outs. Jayson Ripepi closed out the last two innings, conceding six runs from seven hits. Bellvilleâ€™s Bertus Mostert threw 6.2 innings, conceding five hits and striking out four hitters. Bellvilleâ€™s top hitters were Kyle Ettisch (3/3, including a home run), Jonathan Phillips (3/4) and Anthony Phillips (3/5). Westridge had five scattered hits.
