Students stand together A peaceful candlelight vigil was held at the Hall of Remembrance at the Bellville campus of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology last Wednesday. This follows student protests that turned violent on Tuesday, with cases of arson, malicious damage to property, attempted murder and disobeying a High Court order, that ensued. “Arriving at CPUT last night, I was scared,” said photographer Justin Sullivan. “I had seen the destruction on campus and I was alone walking the streets at night. Coming across the vigil, I stood outside, too nervous to walk in. The door opened and a student said, ‘Come in, Brother, you are with us’. This peaceful gathering forms the core of the #FeesMustFall movement. These students want peace, they want equality and they want a better future for South Africa.” PHOTO: JUSTIN SULLIVAN


‘Skollie’ shares story ry ASTRID FEBRUARIE @astridfebruarie


f you can read and write you can dream”. This is the message John Fredericks delivered to Rosendal Primary School learners in Delft last week when he was invited to address the learners on issues of gangsterism and crime. Fredericks is the scriptwriter of the newly released movie Noem my Skollie. The story is based on his life and how he survived prison. Najma Abrahams, a teacher at the school, invited Fredericks to the school after she watched the movie and thought that he could positively influence the learners to choose a path in life that will have a positive impact on their future. “The story is incredible and I felt very emo-

tional after watching the movie and I knew then that I somehow had to get in touch with him to address the learners at the school,” she says. Abrahams says many of the learners and youth in the community come from broken homes, with single parents or guardians, and struggle with discipline. “I felt that someone like John could tell them that their circumstances should not limit their dreams or goals they set out for themselves. We are all unique and each one of us has a purpose. If he could influence one ‘diamond in the dust’ among the learners, that would be a lot,” she says. Fredericks did not go into detail about the movie when he addressed the learners, but rather spoke about his passion for writing and the path he chose to make a change in his life. “You have to be your own hero and have to

take a stand for your own life if you wantt to see change. We must use each day to do som mething positive with our lives and it starts with w the choices we make,” he says. Fredericks also told the learners that being in school should be the best years of their liv ves and should be taken seriously. “You must use every minute in the day to add value to your life and listen to your teach hers and elders who have the experience and d the knowledge to help you along your jourrney. Make use of this time to be the best you u can be and you will reap the benefits of your efforts,” he says. Abrahams says she was really struck by Fredericks’s humble and soft spoken character and will never forget his words to her and some of the teachers at the school that, “I live day by say, step by step and mile by John Fredericks, writer of the movie Noem mile”. my Skollie.

City cops clamp down S

everal people were arrested for various crimes over the past weekend by City of Cape Town law enforcement agencies during various operations. Metro Police officers across the city apprehended seven suspects for being in possession of drugs, with nearly daily busts. During an operation in Bellville South on Friday 14 October, officers arrested two men aged 27 and 61 for being in possession of drugs Meanwhile on the same day an officer of the Integrated Roadblock Unit stopped a vehicle on 35th Street in Bishop Lavis and upon searching the vehicle and its three occupants the officer found an imitation firearm, and other dangerous weapons. Officers also found an identity document with a driving licence, bank cards and other cards, a video camera, cellphone and tablet and small quantities of mandrax and dagga were also found in their possession. On further investigation it was found that

Student and staff of Cape Peninsula University who are scheduled to write assessments or have contact classes will proceed with their classes at the Wingfield Military Base in Goodwood. This follows an evening of extreme violence last week at the CPUT campuses resulting in 13 arrests. CPUT spokesperson, Lauren Kansley, says violent protest which saw the entry gate, security booth and the security control room torched and at least two vehicles damaged, happened around midnight on Tuesday 11 October. “Charges of attempted murder were laid after protesters locked two security guards inside a burning building.

guards suffered mostly smoke inhalation and are now stable,” Kansley says. She says the attacks follow an afternoon of running battles with police and security where at least 19 arrests were made across the Bellville, Cape Town and Mowbray campuses. Other charges laid include public violence and malicious damage to property. Meanwhile classes were suspended as a result of ongoing violent attacks and alternative forms of tuition and assessment were being explored. Kansley says these include using online alternatives and securing off site venues. These include moving work to off-site venues and scheduling a meeting in the

near future with the Joint Union Task Team and the newly elected Student Representative Council (SRC). “We confirmed the availability of the Wingfield Military Base as an option for off-site assessments as we head towards examinations. Meanwhile to bolster security the police have committed to a 24hour police presence and to implement the court orders currently in place. A police liaison has also been appointed to each campus,” she says. Kansley says staff are encouraged to report any and all incidents of intimidation and violence to police so that these matters can be investigated and arrests can follow.

the items in their possession were linked to a robbery that had occurred in the Bellville area the previous day (Thursday 13 October). The three suspects were arrested for possession of an imitation firearm with intention to commit an offence, possession of stolen property, and possession of drugs and dagga, and detained at the Bishop Lavis Police Station. City Mayco member for safety and security, JP Smith, says the City’s law enforcement agencies arrested 243 suspects and issued 1 967 fines for various offences during the operations across the City. “I want to commend our officers who stop at nothing to bring drug users and dealers to book. “The use of drugs is to blame for some of the social ills we find in our communities and therefore must be tackled. We will therefore continue to clamp down on drug use,” Smith says.

Thieves target community facility ASTRID FEBRUARIE



“The cables were stolen on 1 September and the library has been closed since 2 September,” he said. The councillor’s office was also broken into three times this year and this year alone the fence was repaired five times. It was broken again just two weeks ago. Jaftha says he finds it disturbing that “these criminals think nothing of the community and do not realise the negative impact their actions has on the rest of the community”. He says that ratepayers’ money is being wasted because of the break-ins and theft of electric cables. “We all have to take ownership of the public facilities and it is our re-

sponsibility to report those who are responsible for the crimes. Many a time it is people who live among us who commit these crimes and they have to be held accountable for their actions,” he says. Jaftha says an extra security guard has been stationed at the library until the repairs to the cables are complete, but at this stage he says they are still waiting on Eskom to restore the cables to enable the library to operate again. “I know that the City is working on this matter and trying to resolve it as soon as possible so that we can have a functioning facility, especially for the matriculants to have a place to study for their final exams,” he says.

Auditions for youth talent show held in Belhar Youth promoters of Safe Roads for Youth (SR4Y) in the province will host a talent show next month and are calling on all youth to audition.

Concerns have been raised about theft at Huguenot Square


elhar residents are urged to take ownership of public facilities and to report vandalism to the local authorities to ensure that criminal activity is deterred in future. This after all the electrical cables at the Huguenot Square Library and the local ward councillor’s office were stolen last month and has left the facility in the dark. Local ward councillor, Willie Jaftha, says he is furious about the damage caused to the facility as community organisations are now unable to use the facility for meetings or events and those who use the library cannot gain access to it. “It is unfair that the community has to suffer like this, especially learners who rely on the library facility to do their homework, assignments and to study and job seekers who use the computer facilities to update their CVs,” he says. Tygerburger previously reported on the matter and according to Anda Ntsodo, the City’s Mayco member for community services, the library had been broken into and vandalised nine times in the last year (“Thugs demolish library”, TygerBurger, 28 September). This occurred between July 2015 and September 2016.

Local cluster cops scoop top awards RICHARD ROBERTS @richardjohn_rj

Swift action leads to arrest If you’re driving a stolen car with no number plates and decide to jump a red traffic light, then you’re asking to be arrested. This scenario played out on Thursday 13 October, when Law Enforcement (LE) officers were busy serving warrants. Officers observed a Toyota Yaris at the intersection of Belrail and Robert Sobukwe roads in Bellville, said LE principle inspector, Wayne Dyason. “The vehicle had no rear number plate and there were three occupants inside. The alert officers’ attention was immediately drawn and at the next intersection the driver jumped a red traffic light. “The officers pursued the vehicle and

the suspects were cornered when they drove down a cul de sac. The suspects all exited the vehicle and fled on foot,” he said. The officers charged after the suspects on foot, he said, catching up to and arresting two suspects. The two are from Kuils River and Delft respectively and they were detained at the Bellville Police Station and charged. “The vehicle tested positive as being stolen from the Cloetesville area in Stellenbosch. It was taken to the police’s vehicle pound in Stikland.” V What do you think of this swift action? Let us know by sending a letter with your thoughts to

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 annual 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 hand-picked a team of detectives myself to deal with it,” he says. The investigation team of detectives was awarded the title Detective Group of the Year at the Prestige Awards, held 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 also became station commander at the

Beaton, who has a national diploma in police administration behind his name and is currently busy 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 result next year,” he says.

City rolls out R19m road upgrade T

he City is about to spend R19 million on the rehabilitation of Peter Barlow Drive in Bellville. Transport for Cape Town (TCT), the City’s transport authority, started with the refurbishment on Monday (17 October). The road will be rehabilitated between the intersections with Kasselsvlei Road and the Tienie Meyer Bypass off Strand Road (R102). The roadworks will take place until at least March 2017, weather permitting, according to a City statement. They are also appealing to residents and road users to have patience due to traffic delays during the construction period. “Peter Barlow Drive is one of the most important arterial routes in Bellville, with a significant number of commuters travelling along this road to get to Parow and the adja-

cent industrial areas,” said Mayco member for transport, Brett Herron. “The road has now reached a stage where we cannot hold off on a major refurbishment any longer. The road surface is cracked and potholes will soon appear, meaning it will not withstand another rainy season. As such, we will start rebuilding the dual carriageway over a distance of about one kilometre, starting at the intersection with Kasselsvlei Road,” he said. Due to the construction work, road users travelling along Peter Barlow Drive will not be allowed to access Elektron Street. Elektron Street will be open to traffic, but road users will have to use Brug and Molecule streets to gain access to Elektron Street until the end of November, if all goes as planned.

“We will spend approximately R19 million on this project and will try to limit the inconvenience to road users as far as possible,” Herron said. “As such, we will rebuild one lane at a time, meaning there will always be three out of the four lanes available to road users at any given time. “Furthermore, to assist with the peak traffic flows, two lanes will be available in the direction with the worst traffic – meaning that in the morning peak-hour period, two southbound lanes will be available to traffic and in the afternoon peak-hour period, two northbound lanes will be available,” he added. Apart from rebuilding the dual carriageway, TCT will also reconstruct the intersection with Kasselsvlei Road.

This phase of the project will only start in November, with the majority of the roadworks taking place over weekends to minimise the impact on road users. “We will also build new walkways along both sides of Peter Barlow Drive – these will be 2.5 m wide and thus wide enough to accommodate both pedestrians and cyclists.” Herron also calls on motorists to adhere to road signs. “Please adhere to the road signs during the construction period, to be patient, and to expect longer travelling times. “We will try our best to complete this project as soon as possible,” Herron concluded. V Road users who would like more information can phone the Transport Information Centre (TIC) on 0800 65 64 63 for more information.

An insight into dealing with mental illness World Mental Health Day was celebrated on 10 October and Dr Ajesh Janki, a psychiatrist at Akeso Clinics with branches across Cape Town and the rest of the country, offered some advice when it comes to living and dealing with someone with a mental illness. Where can I learn about mental illness? Instead of reverting to “Dr Google”, stick to reputable websites such as Medscape or the Sadag/Sasop websites, Janki says. You may also wish to speak to your loved one’s treating psychologist or psychiatrist, but remember that they are bound by ethics and the law and that this can only happen if it is consented to. What do I do if my loved one is refusing help? Try to understand their reasons and to reassure them about their concerns. Remind them that an assessment is not necessarily a commitment to taking treatment or being hospitalised, or that treatment does not necessarily involve taking medication and that there are psychological therapies as well. In severe cases where there is a lack of insight or the person poses a danger to themselves or others, involuntary admission may be necessary. This involves a legal process of compelling a person to be admitted to hospital despite their unwillingness to consent. This is usually done in the interests of someone’s health or safety or for the protection of others. How do I deal with difficult behaviour? It is helpful to anticipate potential problems and devise plans to reduce the risk of commonly encountered behaviours such as drug or alcohol misuse, threats of acts of aggression or threats or acts of self-harm. Verbal or written agreements on what is appropriate can be helpful. Harm minimisation strategies are some-

times preferable, for example, it might be better to agree on drinking small amounts of alcohol at home as opposed to someone going out and binge drinking, Janki says. What do I do if someone is suicidal? Try to establish how the person is feeling and what is contributing to their feelings of desperation. Offer assistance within your means and remember that you are not a therapist or psychiatrist. There are many support groups that may be of assistance. Seek an urgent appointment with a mental health professional and if this is not possible, take the person to the casualty department for an assessment and if necessary, an emergency admission to hospital. How do I deal with a distressed adolescent? It is estimated that up to 20% of adolescents meet the diagnostic criteria for a mental illness. Common problems include drug and alcohol misuse, depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts. Which organisations might be useful to get more information or for support? . Akeso Psychiatric Clinic ( Akeso Clinics is a group of private in-patient psychiatric clinics. Akeso Clinics offer specialised in-patient treatment facilities. In the event of a psychological crisis, call 0861 4357 87 for assistance. . South African Depression and Anxiety Group ( This website has information on mental illness, support groups and other practical information. .

City Mayco member for health, Siyabulela Mamkeli, speaks to learners.

Clean hands and keep germs away


ake hand-washing a habit. This was the theme for the City of Cape Town’s Environmental Health Department who recently hosted an awareness event at Klipfontein Primary School in Bonteheuwel to highlight the importance of hand-washing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. The event was held ahead of Global Hand-washing Day that was held on Saturday 15 October. The City partnered with Mérieux NutriSciences to conduct the awareness session to encourage learners to wash their hands using soap and water. Educational material was also distributed along with a hand-washing demonstration to support the theme. The City’s Mayco member for health, councillor Siyabulela Mamkeli, said washing one’s hands is one of the best and most inexpensive ways to prevent the spread of diarrhoeal diseases and pneumonia. “It is vital for child survival as 1.7 million children die each year as a result of diarrhoea and pneumonia illnesses that are entirely preventable,” he said. Mamkeli said having hand-washing stations in schools can both help to reduce ab-

senteeism and enable girls to manage their menstrual cycles safely and with dignity. “Getting into the habit of washing hands with soap is not only a preventative solution, it is also very cost-effective,” he said. Mamkeli said germs spread diseases, and washing your hands regularly kills these germs and by adopting this simple yet important habit, especially from a young age, can cut deaths from diarrhoeal diseases by almost half and deaths from acute respiratory infections by nearly a quarter. He said despite the benefits of hand-washing, it is far too often the case that it is not practised. The City’s environmental health department recommends that you always wash your hands after using the toilet, changing nappies or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, after touching animals, after touching refuse, before, during, and after preparing food, before meals, after caring for a sick person and before and after treating a cut or wound. “Washing your hands with soap can help save lives and contribute to healthy, prosperous communities in and around our city,” Mamkeli said.

Learners were also given a demonstration on hand washing and how to do it properly during the Global Hand washing event.

Young maestro to train under master MICHELLE LINNERT @linnertmb


is mom played classical music to him in the womb and when he was one, he used to stand and stare at the piano, waiting for someone to play to him. But it wasn’t until Qden Blaauw (12) was eight years old that he took to the keys and started making his own magic. Now the youngster from De Tyger in Parow, who is a Grade 6 learner at Welgemoed Primary, is headed to Warsaw in Poland to train under the great master pianist Lang Lang and his colleagues at the Allianz Music Camp. Making this week-long, all expenses paid camp even more exclusive, is the fact that Qden was chosen from 500 entrants from 63 countries – and is only one of 10 children and the first from Africa – to be chosen for this great honour that starts on 1 November. His dad, Denric, will be accompanying Qden, leaving mom Quinette and little sis Quiné (8) at home. Says Quinette: “They will have the one-week programme with master classes with Lang Lang and other professional pianists, then

they will be performing, but there will also be fun activities.” Qden has made quite a name for himself in the classical music circles: He received seven trophies at the Stellenbosch eisteddfod earlier this year, which also earned him the HB Thom shield for most promising contestant, his mom says. “It’s important for us to manage everything well and keep him grounded. We wish for him to grow up well rounded,” Quinette says. For the master camp, Quinette says the organisers looked for children who can play at a high level, but of whom they also expected to make a three-minute video answering eight questions about their love for classical music and themselves. The aim of the camp is to handpick ambassadors that will ensure the future of classical music, she says. She adds Qden made it to the semi-finals of this competition last year, but the video was very hard for him then, even though Qden has always been a “natural born performer”. “When he was three or four, I was already saying this child is going to be a performer one day!” Quinette jokes. “I thought

Qden Blaauw in Austria during a family visit to the birthplace of his favourite composer, Mozart. he’d be a perfect TV presenter, because he always wanted to entertain people.” Quinette says he interacts as well with children as with adults. “He has this unique ability to be adaptable or flexible in how he interacts with people – like his peers at school, or when he’s with his orchestra mates.”

Even as a baby, Qden showed a tremendous “brightness”, his mom says. “He learned very quickly – like he had this innate, deeper insight into a matter.” And the love of classical music and composing his own music? “He used to love classical music even as a baby. We played it to him in the womb, and when he was a toddler,

his favourite programme was Little Einsteins – where they play classical music all day!” she laughs. “We never knew he was watching the show just to listen to the music. “When he was three, he watched ballet with me for the first time. Qden could not take his eyes off the TV. What little child is that interested in ballet?” says Quinette. He only started playing four years ago, but is already composing his own music. “He is a gifted composer and I think that is his dream – to be a world renowned composer one day.” “He is humble, and this camp can be life-changing for him,” says Quinette. And they wish big things for him, which are within reach as this critical event in his young life takes Qden on an upwards trajectory into his musical future. So when his mom says: “Wouldn’t it be great if he ended up being the first great master composer from Africa?” one can firmly believe it will happen. V What do you think of Qden’s achievements?

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.

father’s place. This is resolved via a traditional Xhosa legal trial, held at the court of King Hintsa, who presides over the trial. Various people give testimony; key among them Khulile, an inyange (a wise, old sage) and thus a vital source of oral tradition, and the midwives who helped at the twins’ birth. The vibrant music and dance used to tell this story makes it accessible to people of all languages. V Tickets cost between R50 and R80 from Computicket or call Artscape Dial-A-Seat on 021 421 7839.

TYGERBURGER Ravensmead & Belhar 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 stewig in saal; ander spanne sukkel SAREL BURGER

Kuda Samunderu (3/20), links, is een van Durbanville se staatmakers teen Claremont.


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.”

VOB ‘hits’ homerun



arsity Old Boys (VOB), with a much improved performance, surprised arch rivals Athlone A’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 VOB’s runs were unearned. Athlone made six errors in total compared to VOB’s one. A’s managed to get a run back in the seventh inning. VOB somewhat surprised everyone when it started with former Silvertree and A’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 Jacobs’s turn on the mound, A’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, Maitland’s Canadian pitcher, and Jayde Thorne kept the Durbanville bats quiet by only conceding three scattered hits. Two big innings – the fourth and sixth – set up Maitland’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.

Tantasport faced Kenfac Phillies in the opening match of the new season of the Cape Town Softball Association league. The team from Grassy Park scored their first win of the season beating Phillies 46-6 at Turfhall sports complex on Saturday. The match started out evenly, with both teams battling to put runs on the board in the first three innings. However, the game was tipped by the determination and courage from Phillies, who managed to break the deadlock in the bottom of the fourth inning by scoring six runs. Former Glenthorn A’s player Carly Mulder stepped up to the plate and brought in three Phillies runs in the bottom of the fourth. Despite game jitters, Tantasport fought back in the top of the fifth inning by scoring four runs, with Justine Steward adding on two of the four runs with an automatic home run. In the bottom of the fifth Phillies were unsuccessful in scoring runs. Phillies had bases loaded with one out, but the tight defence of Tantasport left them scoreless

yet again. With the score remaining 6-4 in the sixth inning, it took fearlessness from Tantasport to pull out all the stops and secure a win with 10 runs. “In the seventh inning Tantasport started creating chances and hitting the ball around the park, which saw us come from behind to seal the victory with 10 runs,” says Denver Anthony, head coach of Tantasport. At the bottom of the seventh inning, Phillies failed to get any batters on base, which left them defeated. Even though Phillies lost their first game, former Falcons coach Andre Alexander feels optimistic about his team’s potential this season. “Although we lost, this was a great game opener between young, aspiring teams looking to establish themselves in the top four this season after being the whipping girls last season,” says Alexander. Top batters for Tantasport were Kathryn van Boom (getting 4/5 hits), Roxanne Albertyn (3/5) and Nawaal Nacerodien (2/4). More Super League results: . Glenthorn A’s 7-0 Westridge Yankees B .
