MAYOR’S PLAN: CONCERNS OVER JP SMITH
Quite a mouthful
Reshuffle riles crime fighters MONIQUE DUVAL AND ASTRID FEBRUARIE
Brendon Swartz (left) from the Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre (Huis Andries Olivier) presented a mouthpainting demonstration and lesson at a fun day at the Sibongile Day and Night Care Centre for children with physical and intellectual disabilities in Khayelitsha last Monday. Here he is closely watched by Albert Fritz, provincial minister of social development.
ocal crimefighters have raised their concerns about a proposal to move Mayco member for safety and Security, JP Smith, from his portfolio. News that Smith may be moved to a “lower post” has sent tongues wagging in recent months as many have accused mayor Patricia de Lille of not taking into consideration the implications for communities that have formed close bonds with Smith in his work to uplift local neighbourhood watches in the fight against crime. In a statement made by De Lille in August, she raises the Organisation Development and Transformation Plan (ODTP) which she says is a legislative requirement when considering the requirements of local government legislation and regulations, specifically the Municipal Structures Act and the Municipal Systems Act. For several months now, rumours have swirled that as part of the ODTP, there would be a merging of portfolios which would lead to the safety and security and social development portfolios being managed by one Mayco member. According to DA insiders, this also means that Smith will be replaced. This has resulted in strong public opinions including the creation of petitions and Facebook pages by the public advocating on his behalf. Riverton Estate Resident’s Association and Riverton Estate Neighbourhood Watch chairperson Steve Ross, says if the allegations are true that Smith may be moved to a “lower post” he hopes the person who takes over his role within the safety and se-
curity portfolio has the same passion and drive for their new position. Pastor Isaac Basson, chairperson of Bonteheuwel Community Police Forum (CPF), says if Smith is ousted from the portfolio it would be detrimental to the community. “Smith has always made himself available to the community, he is always ready to assist and always makes a plan to be there when called upon. “He is accessible and has several times made himself available to us after hours and goes above and beyond to support us,” he says. TygerBurger has investigated allegations with several inside sources confirming that De Lille has personal problems with Smith and is using the ODTP and the merging of portfolios to oust him. According to various DA insiders it all started over a disagreement in a caucus meeting and insiders claim Smith being “too vocal got him into trouble”. In addition they claim there is a ploy by the mayor to place former ID friends and politicians in powerful positions and the “axing of Smith was linked to this”. They told TygerBurger that the mayor is “destroying the man and his department that he built”. In addition they accuse her of “putting petty politics ahead of progress”. According to De Lille’s spokesperson, Pierrinne Leukes, as of 1 January 2017, all Mayco members will be receiving new portfolios in order to accommodate the new directorates in terms of the ODTP. These changes, she says, will be communicated in due course, as noted in previous communication. V To page 2

Leukes says the new breakdown includes, four area-based Mayco members, one for transport and urban development, one for assets and facilities management, one Mayco member for corporate services and one Mayco member for finance. In addition she says there will be one Mayco member for the directorates of informal settlements, water and waste services and energy and one Mayco member for social services and safety and security. “This brings the total Mayco members to 10. The deputy mayor [Ian Neilson] previously also had a portfolio (Finance) but he will be supporting the mayor in her executive functions. There will therefore be the same amount of Mayco members as before. This is being done to support the transversal management of the City,” she says. TygerBurger submitted several very specific questions about Smith’s position specifically, and the allegations against the mayor, when Leukes did not answer some of the questions they were sent back.

lsies River police are calling on all energetic, physically and mentally fit residents to apply as police reservists with a desire to serve their country and community and assist police in the fight against crime. Elsies River police spokesperson Captain Daphne O’Reilly says people who are interested in the position must understand reservists perform voluntary duties without any expectation of receiving compensation for such duties. The requirements for the position include being a South African citizen, at least 20 years of age and below 50 years (ID to be provided). “Candidates must also complete a health questionnaire, must be physically and mentally fit to perform duties and must undergo psychometric testing to fit the profile,” O’Reilly says. Other requirements include being in possession of a Grade 12 certificate, having the ability to speak, read and write at least two official languages, of which one must be English, and allow his or her fingerprints and DNA sample to be taken.
No criminal record Candidates are also expected to complete an assessment questionnaire, and be open to being vetted or screened, willing to undergo the necessary training and be prepared to take the Oath of Office. O’Reilly adds that applicants must un-
derstand that his or her service may be terminated at the age of 60. Candidates who are employed will receive preference and must be able to provide proof of their residential address. “No candidates may apply if they have a criminal record or any criminal or departmental cases pending and must also not have any visible tattoos,” she says. O’Reilly says they will publish the names of all applicants in the newspaper for public comments. “In view of the physical demands of the reservist training programme, candidates with chronic diseases, physical impairments or any other health conditions will be excluded,” she adds. Applicants who have visible tattoos when wearing the uniform will also be excluded.
How to apply Anyone interested can contact Constable Meagan Davids on 021 928 4100 to start the application process. Applicants must take note that application forms are not for sale and any payment offered by an applicant or promises provided will be investigated.

Cop murders still unsolved The national head of the Hawks, Lieutenant-General Mthandazo Ntlemeza, is deeply disturbed by the brutal murder of three police officers this past week in the Western Cape. Ntlemeza says police attacks remain a priority crime as this threatens the safety of communities in the country. “We will continue to relentlessly pursue all responsible in carrying out the directorate’s mandate of ensuring that all people are and feel safe in the country. An attack on a police officer is an attack on the state,” he says. He says these unwarranted attacks also left three other officers wounded. One of the officers shot and killed, Constable Thandoxolo Ndiki, was found lying on a pavement in Delft at about 03:30 on Saturday 26 November. Provincial Hawks spokesperson, Captain Lloyd Ramovha, says the officer was found with what appeared to be gunshot wounds to the upper body. “He was taken to hospital but later succumbed to his wounds,” Ramovha says. In the meantime, the officer’s vehicle was recovered in Muizenberg on Sunday 27 November. Ramovha says the motive for the shooting is still unclear at this stage. Meanwhile Constable Amanda Ladlokova was shot and killed while on duty on Tuesday 22 November in Philippi East. Ramovha says circumstances surrounding these incidents are being investigated. “One suspect has already been arrested and appeared in court last week for the alleged murder of Ladlokova,” he says. Ntlemeza adds investigations continue as the outstanding perpetrators are still being sought. The public is urged to provide information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects. Ramovha says information supplied will be treated with confidentiality. V What is your opinion on these murders? Let us know at email@example.com.

bers. Secondly, when there is a reshuffle, we will communicate it accordingly. The mayor has mentioned the reshuffle according to the transformation plan, as early as August during her council speech. When it happens you will know. Just because you have decided to write a gossipy story, doesn’t mean you get to demand information before it gets announced. “Thirdly, we feel that the response below does answer all your questions. So should you ‘merely state she refuses to answer’, we will be taking it up with your editor and the Ombudsman”. TygerBurger, however, has verified the allegations with several individuals inside the DA who only agreed to speak if their names were not published. Asked to comment, Smith says the ODTP “as a whole” has many objectives for the entire city but had garnered strong opinions. He declined to comment on the allegations against the mayor.

Legal advisor makes his move ASTRID FEBRUARIE
Provincial police chess champion Marc Petersen and fellow chess player Constable Jacques Jacobs.
The legal advisor of the Nyanga Police Cluster, Marc Petersen, won silver and gold in the Provincial Interforces Chess Championship earlier this month. The championship took place between Wednesday 9 November and Friday 11 November at GrandWest Casino and Pinelands Police Sports Ground. Several teams were competing for the top prize, including Fire and Rescue, Law Enforcement, the South African Navy, Correctional Services and the provincial police. The provincial police team won gold while Petersen followed suit and won gold in his board game while managing silver in the individual blitz session. “Coming out on top as a team definitely feels great and confirms that hard work and dedication pays off,” he says. Petersen, a self-taught chess player, started playing in 2000 when he first saw a group of his friends playing at school and he wanted to play as well. “It looked really interesting and complicated, but that weekend I went to the local library and found a book titled ‘Learn chess in a weekend’. “By the Monday I knew the basics,” he says. Petersen then went on to play in first offi-

cial match and won against players who had been playing the game since the age of eight. “It felt really good to win and I wanted to play more and perfect my game. I then decided to join the Elsies River Chess Club and from there I played in more competitions,” he says. He believes playing chess helped him to be disciplined and learn patience which helped him with his studies. “I found it easier to study and focus because my mind was already wired like that through playing chess. I found a good balance between my social life and studying,”
he says. Basson says through both the police chess club and the community club he motivates young people to learn how to play chess as it will help them strike a good healthy balance. “I have seen how it has changed the mindset and behaviour of many young people in the community – even those who I started playing the game with have found great balance in their lives and still continue to play,” he says.

Man gekneus ná treinaanranding SALETTE CLOETE @salettecloete
Elsies River police embarked on a pamphlet drive to create awareness at this crime hotspot as well as to bring awareness around violence against women and children.
Elsies women informed ASTRID FEBRUARIE @astridfebruarie
Due to the high amount of robberies and smash-and-grab incidents on the corners of Owen and 35th streets, Elsies River police embarked on a pamphlet drive to create awareness at this crime hotspot. Last week several police officers were handing out pamphlets to warn motorists and pedestrians to be alert. Elsies River police spokesperson Captain Daphne O’Reilly says the pamphlets contained safety hints to urge the public to safeguard their property. “We also used the opportunity to bring awareness around the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign,” she says. Officers handed out pamphlets with tips and hints on how women and children can protect themselves as well as what their rights are. “It is important to create awareness on do-
mestic violence, what signs to look out for and where to get assistance,” she says. O’Reilly says Elsies River police are also concerned about the increase in the number of assault cases reported and most of these cases are domestic where alcohol plays a major role. “If you are a victim of abuse, we urge you to contact the police to find out how to obtain a protection order. We will walk you through the process if you decide to apply for one,” she says. O’Reilly says victims also have the right to lay a criminal charge or only apply for a protection order at the nearest Magistrate’s Court, but must know that they do not have to lay a criminal charge in order to apply for a protection order. “The protection order aims to prevent the perpetrator from continuing with his or her behaviour and we are committed to treat all victims of domestic violence with sensitivity and care,” she says.

is die derde keer in twee maande dat hy op ’n trein aangerand is. Lawrence Viljoen van Boston, Bellville, sê hy is nou so paranoïes hy sal nie gou weer trein ry nie. Hy was egter verlede Sondag genoodsaak om trein te ry, omdat hy geen vervoer uit die Paarl gehad het nie. Nou sit hy met gebreekte ribbes, ’n gebreekte neus en sukkel hy om reg asem te haal. Viljoen het die trein op die Paarl-stasie geneem, waar ’n vriendelike man ’n praatjie met hom aangeknoop het. “Ek was in ’n vieslike bui, dus het ek nie juis teruggepraat nie. Ek weet nie wat ek aan hom gedoen het nie, maar die volgende oomblik het hy my voor die bors gegryp en toe was dit nag.” Viljoen het glo probeer terugbaklei, maar het teruggestaan toe nog twee boewe hom van agter gryp en een ’n mes uithaal. Hy is op die vloer vasgepen en geskop dat hy kreun van die pyn. “Ek was niks in hul oë nie. Net ’n hond op die straat, want dis soos ek gevoel het. Niemand het gehelp nie. Almal het gestaan en kyk en toe weggehol.” Viljoen wil nou weet waar Metrorail se sekerheidswagte was wat veronderstel is om pendelaars veilig te hou. “Ek het nog altyd ’n treinkaartjie gekoop en al hul reëls gehoorsaam.” Die rowers het sy tas gevat met klere, selfoon, beursie, ID-kaart, huissleutels en medikasie, en alles wat in sy sak was. “Die een het weer teruggedraai en my ring van my vinger ook afgehaal. Ek het by die huis gekom met net die klere aan my lyf.” Hy vertel hy het sy nuwe ID–kaart nét twee weke gehad en dis sy vierde selfoon in twee maande wat gesteel is. “Omdat die huissleutels in my sak was, het ons alle slotte laat vervang, wat ons R800 gekos het,” vertel Viljoen. Riana Scott, ’n Metrorail-woordvoerder, sê sulke sake moet eers by die polisie aange-
Riana Scott, Metrorail se woordvoerder, sê sake moet eers by die polisie aangemeld word. FOTO: FOTO24
Lawrence Viljoen is op ’n trein net voor die Bellvillestasie aangerand en amper met ’n mes gesteek. Hy sit met ’n gebreekte neus en drie gebreekte ribbes. FOTO: SALETTE CLOETE meld word, want hulle kan slegs optree as hulle weet waar die vrotkolle is. “As ’n klag nie aangemeld word nie, is dit nie deel van ons amptelike statistiek nie. Dis glad nie vreemd vir misdaad om aan die einde van die jaar toe te neem nie,” sê Scott. Volgens haar word meer as 650 treine per week deursoek vir gesteelde eiendom, wapens en dwelms. “Arrestasies vir geringe misdade wat sakkerollery insluit op stasies en op treine, was die afgelope weke 14 per week.” Scott sê Metrorail-veiligheidsdienste en polisie word strategies ontplooi, gegrond op intelligensie afgelei van aangemelde voorvalle. Sy sê in terme van Prasa se regsaksiebeleid word sulke klagtes deur hul regsafdeling hanteer of deur Prasa se versekeraars. Richard Walker, Metrorial se streeksbestuurder, sê hulle het onlangs hul feestydveiligheidsveldtog, “Operation Spider”, van stapel gestuur. Walker sê groepe veiligheidsdienste kan enige oomblik toesak op enige stasie om ontslae te raak van kriminele elemente, swendelaars en mense wat nie kaartjies gekoop het nie. Ao. Henrietta van Niekerk, ’n polisiewoordvoerder van die Bellville-polisiekantoor, sê dis glad nie nodig om ’n doktersbrief te hê om ’n saak te mag open nie – soos wat die polisie glo aan Viljoen gesê het. “Wanneer jy ’n aanrandingklag maak, doen jy jou verklaring by die polisiekantoor en ’n aanrandingsaak word geopen. Dan gee die polisie vir jou ’n mediese vorm wat deur die dokter ingevul moet word.” V Vertel TygerBurger wat jy van misdaad op treine dink by email@example.com.

City sets aside R4 million for minstrels About R4 million has been set aside by the City of Cape Town for the various minstrel events this year to procure the necessary services. This follows the death of a member of a minstrel troupe who was shot and killed during an illegal back march last week Sunday (20 November). The City’s Mayco member for tourism, events and economic development, Eddie Andrews, says the allocation is to assist the minstrel groups to avoid such incidents. “We strongly condemn this illegal march and can confirm that no permit was issued
for the back march. Further investigations into this matter are underway by the relevant law enforcement agencies,” Andrews says. He says organisers of back marches place their future event applications in jeopardy as stated in the City’s Events Policy and Bylaw. Andrews says ongoing discussions are scheduled with various minstrel associations to plan for the minstrel events which are synonymous with Cape Town. V What is your opinion about the minstrels?

The complicated roles of City cops MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval
e have all seen them around Cape Town – the Metro Police officer, the Law Enforcement officer and the Traffic Services officer. Dressed in their various uniforms and while driving their various types of vehicles, they go around town conducting their various duties. In some cases, this is causing much confusion among the public about who does what, who is responsible for dealing with what issues and who should be taking action. In this week’s edition if Municipal Matters, TygerBurger chats to the City’s Mayco member for safety and security, JP Smith. Smith says the safety and security directorate consists of six main departments, namely: Metro Police, Traffic Services, Law Enforcement, the Public Emergency Communication Centre (PECC) 107, Disaster Risk Management and Fire and Rescue Services. There are also additional entities like the Special Investigations Unit and Internal investigations and the Neighbourhood Watch Support Unit. In the Metro Police department there are 554 operational staff members and Smith says these officers attend to an average of 350 complaints as they mainly act on proactive policing of hotspots and crime threats identified by the South African Police Service (Saps) and communities. The Law Enforcement department has 465 Law Enforcement officers, 186 learner Law Enforcement offi-
cers and 279 volunteers. Smith says they handle more than 5 000 complaints each month, but this figure fluctuates. The City also has 379 traffic officers, 18 traffic wardens and 46 traffic inspectors. “Between January and May 2016, 8 557 complaints were received – an average of just over 1 700 a month. In addition, the department receives hundreds of other complaints via email and WhatsApp that will not reflect on the control room statistics.” Smith agrees that the role of each of these officers is often confused. “Some do not know the difference between Saps and the City’s enforcement agencies and often confuse the roles. Saps is the primary agency responsible for crime prevention. The City’s Metro Police support the Saps but also do autonomous operations.” In addition, he says they have also noted that many confuse the departmental identity of officers. “They will call a Metro Police officer a traffic officer or vice versa. The reason for this confusion is perhaps the public being unclear as to the role of each department. A close match in terms of branding colours between the Metro Police and Law Enforcement and the uniforms of Traffic Services and Law Enforcement may contribute to this confusion.”
The reason for this confusion is perhaps the public being unclear as to the role of each department.
Metro Police Q. What is the primary role of a Metro Police officer? A. The mandate includes securing municipal property, municipal bylaw enforcement, traffic control and crime prevention. Q. What can a Metro Police officer not do? A. The mandate does not extend to conduct-
ing criminal investigations or detaining suspects – these functions are the responsibility of the South African Police Service. Q. When should I call Metro Police? A. Any traffic-related incident, bylaw contravention, domestic or public violence or any other crime-related incident.
provide maximum response and prosecution efficiency in various situations. It is an innovative way to respond to the safety needs of our residents. Crime trends have been identified and the various units created with members specifically trained to deal with specific threats.
Law Enforcement Q. What is the primary role of a Law Enforcement officer? A. A Law Enforcement officer’s core function is to enforce municipal bylaws and regulations and to ensure the general safety of the public whether on beaches, public places and public roads, among others. They also deal with standard-of-living complaints. Law Enforcement officers are peace officers and their powers are set out in the Criminal Procedure Act. They can arrest, issue notices and search and seize in terms of those powers. They can also arrest perpetrators for contravening all Schedule 1 offences. They are also appointed as traffic wardens and many of them are appointed fisheries control officers. Q. What can a Law Enforcement officer not do? Law Enforcement officers cannot do investigations relating to crimes such as robbery and certain driving offences not covered by the Traffic Bylaw such as driving under the influence of liquor (National Road Traffic Act) or other offences not listed in their schedule of powers such as domestic violence and Second-hand Goods Act contraventions. Q. How many units are there within the Law Enforcement department? A. There are four area enforcement sections and 16 specialised units. Q. What is the reason for all these units? A. The specialised units were created to
Traffic Services Q. What is the primary role of a Traffic Services officer? A. The Traffic Services Department is committed to improving road safety by providing effective driving licence services and traffic enforcement. They are responsible for enforcing the City’s traffic laws and clamping down on offences such as speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, and driving recklessly. Q. How many different units are there in this department? A. It consists of the Operations section, Licensing and Prosecutions (Lipro) section and the support services branch. Q. What is the role of the Ghost Squad? A. The Ghost Squad was established to “create an illusion of an omnipresence”. Due to the shortage of officers in and around the city area, the City is trying to create the impression that at any time a motorist must think that the vehicle next to them or behind them could possibly be a Ghost Squad officer and therefore it would discourage motorists from attempting or executing bad driver behaviour. Its core function is to concentrate on serious moving violations which could lead to fatal crashes or crashes involving serious injuries to the parties involved. . All emergency complaints should be to the emergency centre by dialling 107 from a landline, 021 480 7700 from a cellphone or @pecc107 on Twitter. V What is your opinion on the complicated roles?

UWC produces top students The University of the Western Cape (UWC) did exceptionally well in the 2016 GradStar Awards as law graduates Freddy Kido and Yolanda Bam-Mguye were selected as the top students both at UWC and in the country. The GradStar Awards recognise the top 100 university students across South Africa and connect them with potential employers as well as business mentors who will assist them in getting ready for the workplace. The Top 100 candidates went through a four-phase judging process, which led to employer workshops in September, culminating in selecting students regarded as “Ten of the Finest”. Kido, a second-year law student from Windhoek, Namibia, says the GradStar award was a welcome surprise.
“This award is great and I’m still in shock. It gave me exposure and the opportunity to engage with brilliant students across South Africa,” he says, adding the prospects of finding he has already been called by three top law firms. Bam-Mguye, a second-year law student from Oakglen in Bellville was second, which she feels is an immense honour. “Selection was not only based on our academic performance, but on our involvement in university life as well. They looked at whether we were leaders in our own space and within the university community. It was exciting to be part of the online tests that were part of the selection process.” VWhat is your opinion on this article? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

GREAT OPENING SPECIALS!
ith the desire to help others and see them rise to their full potential, a Delft resident founded her own non-profit organisation to help them realise their dreams through sport and education. The organisation, Khathalelana (Care for One Another) was established in June and consists of four board members, including the founder, Marlene Jameson. Jameson says she has lived in Delft for 25 years witnessing the need in the area, and wanted to help the community from her home. However, she soon realised there were too many obstacles in the way to provide a quality service and decided to follow protocol by establishing an official organisation and getting more people on board to assist. Jameson says they recently partnered with Roosendal High School and will be rolling out the first project in February which will be in the form of an aftercare school project as well as a sports programme. She says the reason they chose the school is due to the absence of a library in Roosendal. “The difference between studying at home and studying in a space created by the organisation, is the environment. At home there are often disturbances and the space
created is allocated solely for schoolwork,” Jameson says. She adds that someone involved in sports would soon learn illegal substances and sports do not mix. “Our aim is to create a space for learners where they can come to and do their home work, projects and preparation for exams. This will also include running the library from the school,” she says. Jameson says with regard to sports they have consulted with the department of cultural affairs and sport to bring indigenous games into the community. “Sport has many positive attributes – not only can it discipline people, but it is healthy and can keep people active too,” she says. Jameson says the long-term goal is to keep young people interested in education and sport and hopefully decrease pregnancies, gangsterism and substance abuse. “I believe there are many young people with potential. All they need is someone to guide them to greatness,” she says. Everyone interested in getting involved by offering their time to volunteer their services is urged to do so, but if they do not have the time to volunteer, monetary donations and other services and products and materials are also welcome.

Gym gets community going ASTRID FEBRUARIE @astridfebruarie
n an effort to deter criminal activity at Acker Park in Ravensmead, gym equipment was installed to ensure the space is utilised by residents more often. Ward councillor Jackie Visser says the project, which forms part of the World Design Capital, aims to get residents outdoors and active. “The equipment will hopefully attract more of the senior residents who do not often use the park and in this way they can also keep a close eye on their children who play here,” she says. Visser says the park has been
vandalised several times with the swings and other play equipment stolen, and it was decided that the gym equipment would be more suitable in the park. “We will look into replacing the swings that were stolen, but at this stage we decided installing equipment suited for adults will create a nice balance between the children and older residents. This will also deter criminal activity and hopefully they will see less of the bad elements hanging around at the park,” she says. Resident Isak Fortuin says he is extremely happy about the addition to the park as he no longer has to travel to use the gym in another area.
“I used to travel to a park in Bellville just to use the gym equipment there, but now we have the exact same apparatus they have there and it is on our doorstep. I will definitely make use of it as often as I can,” he says. Another resident, Ubeneschia Engelbrecht, says she is excited as she belongs to a seniors club and they work out together and will now move their classes to the park. “It will make a huge difference as many of us have not been in a gym before, and to join one is really expensive. So, now that we have this and can use it at no cost, we will ensure we use it to our advantage.” V What is your opinion on this gym? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

New app can help save water W
hen the City of Cape Town indefinitely implemented level 3 water restrictions on 1 November, households may have nasty surprises if they are caught wasting water this summer. Fortunately, a mobile app has been developed specifically to help Cape Town residents monitor their water usage. The “My Water” app allows a user to create an account, before prompting the user to input invoice detail and latest water meter reading. With this info, the app can display the total water consumption in Rands, as well as an easy-to-read graph showing the user
in which of the six tariff bands he or she falls. A complete list of the different bands and tariffs is available on the City of Cape Town’s website. The app will help users take control of their water usage and avoid any nasty surprises when they receive their bills. By just taking regular meter readings, people can become aware of their own water consumption habits, and learn where and how to save water. It is easy to overuse water without realising it, especially in cases where the City uses estimates on invoices when real readings are unavailable.
These estimates can lead to home owners receiving hefty fines once the actual water usage is determined and billed for. My Water has been developed by Lightstack, a boutique development house focusing on user facing mobile apps and web solutions. Theo Robbertze, founder of Lightstack and a Boston resident, says having a big garden and pool he has learnt his lesson in the past. “I needed something to manage my own water consumption and thought that this app may be useful to others too.” V What is your opinion on this app?

Top artists to light up the stage With only a few days to go until the official festive season kick-off, a line-up of top African artists have been confirmed for the switch-on of the festive lights event to take place at the Grand Parade on Sunday 4 December. According to a statement by the City of Cape Town, this includes hip-hop artist AKA and South Africa’s internationally acclaimed DJ Black Coffee as headline acts. Also on the bill are top Cape Town artists including legendary DJ Ready D, MCs Soli Philander and Shaleen Surtie-Richards, charting artists Matthew Gold, DJ Lance Theron and Candice Thornton, George Werner’s Cape Town Jazz Legends, Karin Kortje, Robin Pieters from The Voice SA fame, the children of the late Taliep Petersen, and Afrikaans superstar Kurt Darren. They will be joined by the winners of the Festive Lights Challenge currently running on indi.com. For multi-award winning and chart-topping artist AKA this is also a homecoming as the artist, born Kiernan Forbes, returns to the city of his birth for the traditional festive season opener in Cape Town. “I’m excited to be coming home and looking forward to performing for my Mother City fans, who really are like family to me,” says AKA. Straight from international stages such as Ultra Miami, Coachella in California and Ibiza, Black Coffee brings his inimitable house sound to the festive lights switchon for the first time. This year Black Coffee collected the award for the Best International Act: Africa at the BET Awards 2016 held in Los Angeles – the first South African to do so. Along with a high-tech stage in front of City Hall, a video mapping experience and the entertainment line-up, Mayor Patricia de Lille will lead the festive lights countdown amid an explosion of music, dance, lasers and staging effects that will later culminate in the video mapping of the City Hall façade. Meanwhile, the search for Cape Town’s next big music act is taking place online in the Festive Lights Challenge on indi.com, a new social video talent platform which was launched in South Africa. On indi.com, talented artists participate in challenges by uploading their videos, then sharing their entries it across all their social media platforms in an effort to attract likes. The website’s unique algorithm then aggregates likes across all platforms, resulting in an artist’s standing on the “buzz meter”, with the winner attracting the most “buzz points”. V The theme of this year’s festive lights switchon event is “City of ideas – Let’s get on with it, Cape Town” and celebrations at Cape Town’s largest free, openair public event on 4 December 2016 start at 16:00 on the Grand Parade, expected to finish at 22:00.
Fun activities at GW There will be plenty to keep little ones entertained during the school holiday this December when Sun Exhibits at GrandWest will be turned into a giant fun park. The fun park will be open from Friday 16 December until Tuesday 10 January 2017, offering fun for the whole family. A pop-up play park, complete with jumping castles, obstacle courses, cool characters, inflatable soccer goals and photo frames, will keep younger children busy, while those a little older might want to try one of the many carnival rides on offer. . The fun park opens daily from Friday 16 December until Tuesday 10 January 2017, from 11:00 until late and entry prices start at just R20. Sessions last half an hour.

Creating a safe space
Writer wins competition
vacant container situated at Mandela Park will soon be converted into a safe learning space for the community of The Hague as the ward councillor has taken steps in turning the “Green Elephant” into their very own reading room. Councillor Michelle Adonis says the container, which has been vacant for five years, will finally be put to good use. “I am very excited about this project as it is much needed in this community – especially with the lack of resources available to peo-
ple. The reading room will be a learning and safe socialising place for young and old,” she says. Adonis says the reading room will be a space where matriculants or any students can go to study in a peaceful environment, do research for projects and form social clubs. She says the reading room is mainly open to those who are willing to learn and help guide others. “The reading room is not just to study. Community organisations will also be welcome to use the space for meetings or to host their workshops, and anyone wanting to provide their skills and services to

the community will also have the opportunity to make use of the space,” she says. Meanwhile, a facility manager has already been appointed and will ensure that the facility is up and running and keep book of who is using the facility. Wendy Basson, who will be in charge once the facility opens, says she is extremely excited about the room and the difference it will make in the community. “This is a first for our community and something that is needed as people often have to walk far to get to the library or use internet shops to do their work. With something like this we will definitely feel motivated to reach our goals,” she says. The facility is in the process of being renovated, and once City of Cape Town contractors have completed their assessments and find the facility ready to open, a launch will be hosted where all residents will be welcome to attend. “This room will play such an important role in the lives of young people who are working towards achieving their goals, and we want their parents as well as their teachers to join us when we launch this facility because we can only make a success of it when we all play our part in creating a peaceful learning environment,” she says. Anyone interested in volunteering their skills to the matriculants, other school learners or newly established organisations are urged to contact the councillor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Small dogs with big personalities Fisantekraal Animal Welfare (FAW) has several friendly, loyal little Jack Russell and Jack Russell-mix dogs that are small in size but large in personality. The Jack Russell breed is known to be courageous, intelligent, and active; it is one of the most popular dog breeds in South Africa as a result, says Jenni Davies, spokesperson for FAW. Little Bennie is a short-legged happy-golucky Jack Russell of around two years old. He longs for a home where his love of the outdoors and cuddles will be indulged. He loves children and gets on with other dogs. Everyone who has met Bennie, falls in love with his charming personality, says Davies. Astro and Sweetie are brothers. They are both gentle, intelligent and lovable. They will thrive in a calm, stable home and would like to get regular walks. Their sister, Bobbi, is bouncy, friendly and confident. She will flourish in an active, busy home with plenty to keep her occupied. Vlekkie is a small dog in a big dog’s body. He is alert, intelligent, and proud. He will flourish in a home with experienced dog owners who can give him the direction and
love that he needs. He is ideally suited to an older family with no young children. FAW has more Jack Russell-type dogs up for adoption, such as Chester, a brindled Fox Terrier-mix and Gabbi, a wire-haired Jack Russell-mix. All adoptions are subject to a home-check and an adoption fee. V Visit their website or contact them at in email@example.com or on 084 519 0380 for more.

MyCiTi service extended for holiday As Cape Town approaches its busiest time of the year with tourists and local fun seekers, the City of Cape Town will be extending the operating hours of the MyCiTi bus service during the festive season. According to a statement by the City’s Mayco member for transport, Brett Herron, those driving around the city would have noticed an increase in traffic already. “With the weather improving and the start of the festive season only a few weeks off, we expect the number of visitors to increase significantly. I want to remind residents and visitors that the MyCiTi service operates a number of routes to our local beaches and places of interest such as Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront. Visitors are encouraged to opt for the MyCiTi buses which offer a convenient and scheduled service. Also, part of winding
down is not having to drive yourself and to search for parking – I thus advise our locals to give the MyCiTi service a try.” The MyCiTi service will operate later than usual to accommodate those who want to do late-night shopping at the V&A Waterfront and Canal Walk. Additional trips will be added after 21:30 from Friday 2 until Thursday 23 December. Additional buses will depart from the Waterfront on the T01 trunk route to Table View and Dunoon on Route 214 to Parklands. Later buses will also operate on Routes 251 (Century City), the T03 trunk route (Atlantis, Table View, Omuramba), and the T04 trunk route (Dunoon, Century City). “We will also add more buses on routes to and from the popular beaches on 16, 25, 26, 27 and 31 December , as well as on 1 and 2 January 2017. I want to urge beachgoers
to rather park in the vicinity of the Civic Centre station in the central business district and take a MyCiTi bus to Sea Point, Camps Bay and Hout Bay,” he says. Herron also says the MyCiTi service will operate late into the night to accommodate those who want to celebrate New Year’s Eve at popular spots around the city. It is a safe and hassle-free option with additional buses operating between 21:30 and 02:00 on selected routes and at intervals of 20 to 30 minutes. The last bus will leave the Waterfront to Table View and Usasaza (T01) at 01:00; from the Civic Centre to Camps Bay (Route 107) at 01:00; from the Table View station to Melkbosstrand (Route 217) at 01:00; and from the Table View station to Parklands (Route 214) at 02:00.

ou’d be forgiven for causing an accident when you first spot these two. With their matching sunglasses, Vlekkie and her owner, Johan Fourie, are a familiar sight to Brackenfell and Durbanville residents already. They make an unusual pair, with Vlekkie – who is a dog, by the way – perched on Johan’s shoulder during his almost daily cycle. Johan, who lives in Vredekloof, says he has the best fitness trainer in the world in his furry friend who gets more excited that him when she sees him getting his gear on after work. “She watches me and runs outside to the bicycle.” It all started about five years ago while he was visiting family for a holiday. Johan borrowed his brother’s bike to cycle to the next town and Vlekkie escaped from the house to follow him. “She goes everywhere I go,” he explains. Not wanting to turn back, he threw her over his shoulder and hoped for the best. “Turns out she loved it.” When he started regularly riding about three years ago, it was only natural that she would join him – with her own gear. Her sunglasses are called Doggles and are specially made to fit her head, keeping dust and insects out of Vlekkie’s eyes. The two now cycle together almost every day, provided the weather isn’t too bad and there’s nothing urgent Johan needs to do. They do about 16km daily during the week and 28km a day over weekends, but their routes always go past parks where Vlekkie can stretch her legs and “check her Facebook”. V Have you seen Johan and Vlekkie on the road? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Entries open early for Cansa relay event T
eams of 10 to 15 people can already enter now to take part in the Cansa Relay for Life (North) event on 4 March next year. Relay For Life, an overnight event in which teams spend up to 12 hours walking or running around a track, will be presented at the Bellville Velodrome. The aim is to raise R100 000 in aid of the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa), says Leatitia Jordaan, co-ordinator for Relay For Life in the Cape Metro region. “This is the first time in two years that this event, one of six in Cape Town, is presented again in the northern suburbs,” she
says. Other similar events will be presented in Athlone, Mitchell’s Plain, Somerset West, the SA Navy in Wingfield and in the Mamre-Atlantis-Pella area, she says. A total of 80 teams can enter the event at a cost of R650 per team. The closing date for entries is at the end of February 2017, but teams should start their fundraising initiatives so long. “Relay for Life celebrates survivors, funds research and cancer education and inspires the public to become involved Cansa’s advocacy efforts. It also makes important services possible for patients and
their families,” continues Jordaan. The event will provide communities with the opportunity to join the fight against cancer. “Team members take turns walking or running around a track so that the team has at least one member on the track the entire time of the event. “Money is raised primarily through team commitment fees, team and individual fundraising, as well as Luminaria or Candle of Hope donations,” she says. Highlights of every relay are the survivorship activities and the “Luminaria Ceremony” or “Candle of Hope Ceremony”,
each acknowledging those who have been touched by cancer. Survivors are honoured and celebrated via special activities, including an opening Survivors’ Lap around the track and a heart-warming Luminaria Ceremony. “Luminaria or Candles of Hope are purchased both before and during the relay, placed around the track and lit during a programme,” says Jordaan. “The programme includes inspirational stories and truly highlights the importance of fighting cancer,” she says. V Contact Leatitia Jordaan on 082 952 7797 or ljor email@example.com for more information.

Time to get grooving with The Kink LOUISA STEYL @lousteyl
uave, tight and thoroughly entertaining, The Kink is all about good music and having
The Kink are (from left) Khyle Singh, Byran Brink, Meliza Arendse, Linley Meavers, Ian William and Craig Victor. on bass at the beginning of the year, the new line-up was complete. “He just slotted in,” Ian says of Khyle who he met playing together at church. Besides their corporate and private gigs, The Kink have become regular faces at The Piano Bar and the Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay. “These two are legends
there,” Ian says pointing to Meliza and Linley. “People actually request songs when they know that we’re playing there,” Khyle adds. The band has also been spending time on their branding and has been working on photoshoots, their image and show reels, with Linley handling their digital marketing. All the members have quite serious professions, from chemical
engineering and chartered accountancy, to Craig who’s a librarian. The Kink gives them the chance to live out their musical passions after hours. “Most of the time people don’t even know that we are musicians,” Khyle says, adding that many people he knows in his work capacity are “astounded” when they see him on stage.

fun. The six members, who hail from Brackenfell, Kuils River, Belhar, Burgundy Estate, Ravensmead and Diep River, are usually kept fairly busy by corporate and private functions, but northern suburbs fans will get a chance to catch them in action when they present their Kinky Disco – complete with glow sticks and mirror balls – at Jamrock Theatre on Saturday 3 December where they’ll be showcasing just how far their repertoire stretches. Previously known as Five Levels Up, an almost complete line-up change led the band to change their name to something that better reflected their new, fresh vibe. The only two members left from the previous line-up are vocalists Meliza Arendse and Linley Meavers. “This band has changed quite a lot,” Linley says. “When I rocked up, everything changed,” drummer Byran Brink says jokingly, but on a serious note he adds: “There was no tightness about what was happening.” Byran roped his old friend Ian Williams in on keys and the two brought their own feel to the band. Soon after, they auditioned for guitarist and found Stellenbosch University music graduate Craig Victor. With Khyle Singh joining
“But the fun thing about this band are the six people in this room,” he says. The Kink plays pop songs ranging from contemporary pop to old school classics. “But if we do a song we always add our own funk spin to it,” Khyle says, while Ian points out they are always mindful of their audience and try to refine their set list for their audience. “When we do Bay Harbour for example, we always cater for the outof-towners”. One of the biggest components to their adaptability and winning formula is their vocalists’ abilities to bring a crowd out of their shells. “We love crowd interaction; we thrive on it,” Byran says. Craig explains that their show at Jamrock will include music from the 1970s to now. “It’s about painting a picture of who we are.” Proceeds from the show will go towards replacing equipment that was stolen during a break-in. After their Kinky Disco, The Kink will carry on refining their sound, and once the “wedding season” calms down, they’re hoping to spend some time working on originals For now, music fans can catch them at the Bay Harbour Market for a free show on Friday from 18:30 before their Kinky Disco at Jamrock Theatre on Saturday where tickets cost R20. V For more information about the band, for bookings or tickets for Kinky Disco, vis it www.thekink.co.za or “like” them on Fa cebook.

Racing series to reach a new high ADRIAN PHEIFFER
acing at Killarney on Saturday is due to become a virtual mechanical variety show and is certain to reach a new high when a round of the stock car summer championship gets under way immediately after the final leg of the Power Series. And having both forms of competition sponsored by Wingfield Motors, it’s another first for the venue. Although there are several new events on the Power Series programme, the highlights are expected to include the V8 Masters events. These American based units are large and powerful. They need space to manoeuvre and are not finding it easily in a category that currently hosts a larger entry than ever before. There is almost nothing to choose between V8 drivers like multiple former champion Marcel Angel, Fabio Tafani, Boland’s Richard Schreuder, British ace Stephen Young and Craig Jarvis. While Tafani was the overall winner of the most recent meeting, this result may well have been different had it not been for an apparent spillage of oil in one of the corners that resulted in chaos, with big V8’s spectacularly spinning off in all directions. Fortunately, there was no serious damage and no-one was injured. Then, while Dayne Angel was in pole position on the Makita Formula Supercar grid that day, overall victory went to Brad Wadeley. However, one of the closest battles is expected to be fought out in the Bold Marine GTi Challenge. Although this title already belongs to the consistent Bryan Morgen in his Class C, 1.8 Golf, the leading Class A
Hard driving as the season nears its climax, has resulted in the situation getting a little out of hand at times. This is what happened at the most recent Killarney stock car meeting. PHOTO: DAVE COLINS hotshots Jano van der Westhuizen (VW Polo Vivo) and Nian du Toit (VW Jetta 3), still have a score to settle. They won one race each last month, with overall victory eventually going to Van der Westhuizen after a flying young Jurie Swart snatched second place from Du Toit
in their final chase. Among the other events is a category for any car with a closed top. While this has opened the door for a variety of entries, two of the most exciting have been received from Craig Jarvis in his V10 Dodge Viper and Clive Corder in a rare Lola T70 V8.
There will also be races for Formula Vee single seaters, while a full range of motorcycle events is going to include a Breakfast Run GP. The lights will change for the first Power Series event at 10:00, while the oval track racing gets underway at about 16:30.

SPORT STAR OF THE YEAR: YOUNG GOLFER WINS NEWSPAPER AWARD
Kaylah takes top spot STEHAN SCHOEMAN
aylah Williams is the last TygerBurger Sport Star of the Month winner and also clinched the overall TygerBurger and Let’s Play Sport Star of the Year title. The fourteen-year-old learner from Fairmont High School is part of the Women’s Golf Western Province Junior Development Programme and has a bright future. Kaylah, who is a member at the Bellville Golf Club, recently won her biggest trophy yet as she stormed to a two-shot victory winning the Gus Ackerman Trophy at the 36th Ackerman Championship held at Clovelly Country Club. “My journey started when I was three, going to the driving range with my dad, Alan. I think I was about five when I took my dad’s irons. I obviously had to grip down and I just started hitting balls. That was when the bug bit and I enjoyed playing the game ever since,” said Kaylah. A rare feat which most professional golfers never even accomplish is hitting an albatross. “It was around May this year; I was play-

The fourth hole is a par 5 playing around 463 m. I hit an awesome drive of about 270 m leaving me with about 190 m in. I felt good about hitting a five-iron, getting it close and putting for eagle. When
I got to the green, I didn’t see my ball and looked around the green. A woman playing in front of me said it was in the hole. I ran to the flag to find my ball at the bottom of the cup. To say it was a great feeling is a un-
derstatement,” said Kaylah. When it comes to idols, Swedish superstar Henrik Stenson is the one she draws inspiration from. “No-one hits a three-wood like Henrik and the way he changed his attitude over the years – before he would throw his clubs when you see him hitting a bad shot. Now you won’t know it. His composure is something I admire, even when it gets tough. I always ask myself – what would Henrik do?” “I was shocked when I was announced the winner of the TygerBurger Sport Star of the Month competition. I mean, this is TygerBurger; it is huge! And to be selected the overall winner is humbling. I have no words. I just want to say thanks.” Looking to the future, it is Kaylah’s dream to play professional golf but first go to play college golf in America if the opportunity presents itself. Kaylah wins a pair of sunglasses of her choice from Bosman, McNulty and Du Toit Optometrists, Hennie Bosman from the Welgemoed Kyokushin-kan dojo gives her R1 000 and Let’s Play gives her a goodie bag worth R2 000.
