This is the message the Hanover Park Civic Association has sent to president Jacob Zuma. Several associations in gang-infested are- as of the Cape Flats have joined forces to rid their areas of gangsterism. And in a bid to unite residents in demand- ing action, these associations will hold a mass meeting, followed by a mass march to parliament, says Hanover Park Civic Asso- ciation chairperson Errol Davids. “We are tired of hearing gunshots fol- lowed by empty promises. We are demand- ing swift action. We can do these small com- munity marches all we want but the gang- sters are laughing at us and five minutes after we leave they kill again,” he says. Deputy chairperson Igshaan Nazier says it is time to take a stand. “In previous years we could count how many were killed. This year I stopped count- ing in the beginning because at the moment it is a daily occurrence,” he says. In one letter the association writes: “This [is] a time of extreme sadness. A community is mourning 17 deaths in 15 days. Innocents [are] murdered and shot execution style.” The association is calling for State inter- vention to declare a state of emergency in all gang-stricken areas on the Cape Flats. Nazier says too many people are dying at gangsters’ hands. “Us marching makes no difference be- cause we are not enough. We all need to stand together if we want to make a differ- ence.We have the numbers so why are they ruling? We need to take back our communi- ties and stand together,” he says. The association is demanding the presi- dent implement crime prevention strategies such as visible foot patrols and activities for youth at risk. Davids says government intervention is the only solution. “Visible policing happens in Claremont and Simon’s Town, why not in Hanover Park, Manenberg and Bishop Lavis and other gang riddled areas?” Davids asks. He adds no-one is free or safe in Hanover Park. “The two Serfontein brothers [were] both soft spoken and good hearted people. Their only goal was to improve the area and create opportunities for the youth in our community. Members of the association, shot and killed while eating a gatsby in their car. And then again our secretary’s daugh- ter was wounded by a bullet that entered the front door. When will this stop? Why are we forgotten and left to die in Hanover Park?

City staff told not to ask for ‘gifts’This may be the season of giving, but coun-cil is warning residents not to give dona-tions to its personnel.According to a City of Cape Town state-

ment, its Solid Waste Management Depart-ment enforces a policy which forbids itsstaff from soliciting “Christmas boxes” andthey have been reminded of the prohibitionof the practise.“However, if residents believe excellent

service has been provided, they are at liber-ty to give a voluntary donation to staff asa gesture of thanks and goodwill,” saysMayoral Committee member for UtilityServices Ernest Sonnenberg.“Under no circumstances may residents

be approached and asked for money; Citystaff are appropriately remunerated.”If residents are intimidated by staffers,

they are encouraged to report the incident

to the City’s call centre on 0860 103 089. Call-ers must provide the date, time, place andthe vehicle’s registration number.Refuse collection services will remain in

operation during the festive season, evenon public holidays.“As there will be less traffic on the roads

during the holiday period, collection teamsmight arrive earlier than usual. Therefore,it is best that residents place their bins outbefore 06:00 during this time,” Sonnenbergadvises.Drop-off facilitieswill be closedonChrist-

mas (Thursday 25 December) and NewYear’s days (Thursday 1 January); only theHout Bay facility will be operational from07:00 until 17:00 on these days.Amended operating hours of 08:00 until

17:00 will be in place at the other facilitiesduring the festive season.

TRAFFIC PLAN

Stern warningto city driversTraffic officers are stepping up their

game in a bid to reduce the numberof road accidents and ensure safer

roads in the province over the festive sea-son.At the launch of the provincial Festive

Season Traffic Operational Plan lastweek, provincial transport minister Don-ald Grant said despite a decrease in roadfatalities during the period last year, hisdepartment is determined to further low-er the number. He further called on roadusers to be extra vigilant on the roads.Between 1 December last year and the

end of January, 221 people were killed onthe province’s roads, Grant explained. Atotal of 230 people died in road accidentsduring the same period the previous year.“In the 2013 calendar year, 1 216 lives

were lost onourprovince’s roads.Road in-juries and death in this province cost the[province’s] economy an estimated R21bn– more than either the province’s healthor education budgets,” he said.“The picture is even more grim nation-

ally, with an estimated 17 000 lives lost an-nually. ThenationalDepartment ofTrans-port estimates road trauma costs to theSouthAfrican economy at R306bn annual-ly, which ismoney that should be directedto improving levels of service delivery.”Therefore, the department’s Safely

Home campaign has launched a multime-dia campaign focused on the dangers asso-ciated with alcohol and road use.

Furthermore, the department is the on-ly traffic service which operates aroundthe clock,Grant added, and thiswill inten-sify over the coming weeks. The officerswill particularly focus on motorists driv-ing under the influence of alcohol; exces-sive speeding; average speed over dis-tance (ASOD); driver fatigue manage-ment; driver and vehicle fitness;distracted driving; pedestrian safety; seat-belt compliance; inter-provincial opera-tions; licence plates; safe following dis-tances; and the transportation of illegalsubstances and illicit cigarettes.Grant also urged residents to refrain

from speeding and driving under the in-fluence of alcohol and illegal substances;being extramindful of pedestrians; not us-ing cellphones while driving; and alwayswearing a seatbelt.“Apart from roadside activities, traffic

officials will also promote visible trafficpolicing and operational readiness, in-cluding the further implementation of oursuccessful ‘sticker project’, targeted spe-cifically at public transport vehicles thatwill be embarking on long trips,” he said.Road users can phone the Emergency

Traffic Control Centre on (021) 812 4581;Roadside Emergencies on 10177; or theCity of Cape Town call centre on(021) 596 1999.V View the department’s campaign on the SafelyHome website at www.safelyhome.western­cape.gov.za.

Scrapyards under scrutinyTARREN-LEE HABELGAARN

#@LeeLaVidaLoca

It seems there is no solution in sight forManenberg residents fed-up with illegalscrapyards and scrap collectors operating

in the vicinity.Residents say theyare tired of the filth and

crime caused in their area.Nowhomeowners are insisting that police

and council urgently step in to assist.Banhoek Street resident Norma Hen-

dricks says scrap collectors scratch throughthe possessions on the nearby properties insearch of materials to sell and make a messof everything.“It happens around the clock. Whether it

is early in themorning or late at night, thereare always people with trolleys of scrap,wires, pipes and car parts making their waydown this street.“These scrapyards that pop up every-

where is the reason for all the trolley bri-gades operating in the vicinity and it makesme furious,” she vents.

Her neighbour Roshida Josephs is equallyangry.“If police search the scrapyard in my

street, they are bound to find stolen proper-ty,” she insists.“These types of businesses never have

good reputations. They give criminals aneasywayof getting rid of stolenproperty andare a health hazard.”Homeowners insist illegal business is be-

ing conducted from these premises.Scrapyard owner Oliver Jackson says he

is in the process of renewing his licence.“I make sure that no stolen goods are

handed in at my premises and I try to keepit as neat as possible. The reality is we areworking with scrap and it can’t look like amajestic place. I don’t know why residentsare against scrapyards because it is a wayfor us to generate an income for our familiesand most of the time we take other people’srubbish off their hands,” he says.“It is wrong to place all scrapyards under

the same banner. As long as there is no trou-ble being causedandbusiness is legal, I don’t

see the problem.”Manenberg police spokesperson Lieuten-

ant Ian Bennett confirms police have raideda number of properties inManenberg identi-fied as scrapyards.“We recently shut down two scrapyards

and are still keeping an eye on a number ofother identified properties,” he says.“New scrapyards poppinguphave become

a problem over the few months and many ofthe stolen fencing and bricks from the areahave been recovered at these premises.”Bennett says police and law enforcement

conduct many joint operations at identifiedproperties as well as existing scrapyards toensure they are compliant.“It is also very important that scrapyard

owners take copies of identity documentswhen people do bring in scrap items. It isvery difficult to police an issue such asscrapyards operating illegally because peo-ple are clever and use various excuses to jus-tify the materials being on their property.”JPSmith,MayoralCommitteemember for

Safety and Security, encourages residents to

report all properties where they suspect ille-gal activity to be taking place.“The City of Cape Town will not tolerate

scrapyards operating illegally, especiallyfrom council property as it costs thousandsto replace fencing, bricks and other itemsstolen to trade in for scrap,” says Smith.Manenberg Community Police Forum

chairpersonKadar Jacobs says illegal scrap-yards continue to be a concern.“Theft is a big problem in the area and

Splash of colourcheers upsecret gardenTARREN-LEE HABELGAARN

Entering the parking lot, the dull greybuilding covered in burglar bars couldeasily be mistaken for a prison.

This is not an uncommon perceptionmade by visitors to Parkfields PrimarySchool, admits principal Diana Williams.

But once you turn the corner into thecourtyard of the school you will be sur-prised to see hundreds of mosaic artworksand drawings done by Grade 7 pupils of theschool in conjunction with Frank JoubertArt Centre.

After 15 months of hard labour during theschool holidays and throughout the year,the project has been completed and wallsbrought to life.

Williams says the project was named thesecret garden because everyone “thinks itis just another dull school in a dull area un-til they step into the building”.

“The school has partnered with the FrankJoubert Art Centre for years and thisproject was done by the children and artistsas a way to plough back into the communi-ty. We wanted children to feel inspired andexcited when they came to our school,” shesays.

“Here is so much negativity and crime inthe community and we wanted to create a

space where children could escape from re-ality and be reminded of all things posi-tive.”

Everything from pot plants, walls, class-room doors and even the floors have differ-ent artwork and messages such as laugh,sing and respect displayed on them.

Teacher Denise Forbes, who will be in-volved with taking the pupils to the FrankJoubert Art Centre, says the pupils andteachers have made this a labour of love.

“On our mural we have a painting of ourfirst and previous principal that passedaway as well the current principal. We alsohave the drawings painted with cool col-ours first and then going into the warmerand brighter colours. This signifies the wayin which we hope to help children growthroughout their school career to becomebright pillars of hope in their communi-ties,” she says.

“We also have our school motto and em-blem as well as Madiba painted on the walls.The tree of life is also represented in an art-work to symbolise life. Each classroom hasa different theme with drawings done bychildren from the school. It will serve as alegacy and encouragement for other chil-dren coming into the school. Our aim is toinspire children and evoke positive atti-tudes and respect of themselves, others andthe school.”

‘No’ resourcesASTRID FEBRUARIE

@FebAstrid

Matching community needs with po-lice resources were highlightedamong the concerns at the Nyanga

Cluster public meeting last week.Themeeting was held by the Department

of Community Safety (Docs) to discuss is-sues affecting the Lansdowne, Manenberg,Athlone, Philippi, Philippi East, Gugulethuand Nyanga police stations.Major-General Robbie Roberts, who

heads the Nyanga Police Cluster, said pov-erty, alcohol abuse, unemployement, rob-bery, shortage of police officers and mur-ders top the list of the cluster policing is-sues.“Policing is about human resources and

to ensure visible policing in our area, butwhy does this cluster have the lowest de-ployment of Law Enforcement and MetroPolice when it is considered the murdercapital in the province?” he asked.Roberts said there are not enough police

resources – including police officers, aswell as technology such as CCTV cameras,and patrol vehicles – in the cluster.“There are 25 sectors in this cluster and

not nearly enough police officers to moni-tor the areas.We need to look at the currentlevel of deployment of officers and ensurethat we can fill in those gaps.”He further said although rapes have de-

creased, the number ofmurders in the clus-ter has decreased.“Wehave over 600murders in this cluster

in one year and too few resources to combatthis crime. The community safety depart-ment needs to make this community a toppriority if we are to see change,” Robertssaid.He explained that CCTV cameras play a

huge role indeterring crimeandhelppoliceto monitor the hotspot areas, but with only

28 cameras in the cluster it makes their jobdifficult.“If this cluster is considered the murder

capital of the province we need to movefromnumber 20 on the list in line to receivecameras right to the top,” he pointed out.The main contributors to crime in this

cluster are the lack of jobs which leads peo-ple with no option but to commit a crimeto survive, Roberts said.“We need social development, health and

education representatives to step in as itforms part of police needs and priorities,but residents are also part of these needs.“We cannot combat crime on our own as

police. We need the assistance and commit-ment fromvarious other departmentswith-in government.We need to stand together,”he said.Roberts added that he is accountable for

the community as a police officer. “I amhere to serve and protect, to find solutionsand to make the community safer. I wantto know about the issues andworkwith thecommunity in this fight against crime,” hesaid.Dan Plato, provincial community safety

minister, said poverty, unemployment andsubstance abuse are wreaking havoc incommunities.In addition, a lack of police visibility was

identified as a perceived motivators ofcrime.Murder, house burglary and robbery

were identified as the top crimes in theNyanga police cluster, he said.While theNyangacluster report from last

year does not specifically show it, thereseems to be a very strong correlation be-tween the abuse of substances and sexualoffences in the province, Plato explained.“Most of the areas visited in the province

have listed burglaries, robberies and sexu-al offences or domestic violence as some ofthe top crimes in the area last year.”

Keeping our children safeChild safety should be at the forefront ofadults’ priorities this festive season.This is according to a statement from the

City of Cape Town, as it encourages parentsand guardians to be extra vigilant over theholiday period. In recent weeks, there has

already been a number of reports of chil-dren disappearing, child abuse and neglect,it states.Furthermore, council’s social develop-

ment department urges parents to not instila sense of trust by introducing their chil-dren to people whom they themselves arenot that familiar with.Parents must always know where their

children are; ensuring they are supervisedby a responsible caregiver; teach them notto go anywhere with strangers; ensure chil-dren know their friends and where theylive; have current photographs of childrenin the event that they go missing; and in-form the police as soon as they suspect achild is missing.“I want to call on communities to keep an

eye on one another’s children and to makechild safety your business,” says SuzetteLittle, Mayoral Committee member for So-cial Development and Early Childhood De-velopment.“A fewweeks ago, we had a reported case

of a child who suffered such severe abuseat the hands of her parents that she endedup in hospital. According to the report, theneighbours finally acted when theycouldn’t stand it anymore, which meansthat theyknew the childwas being abused.”Little adds that the department is cur-

rently rolling out services such as advicecentres and assistance from social workersat its district offices.V Report child abuse to the police or the City’s PublicEmergency Communication Centre on 107 from alandline or (021) 480 7700.

RESCUE SERVICES

Boost for firefightersFire andRescueServices has beenboost-

ed with the delivery of two hi-tech fireengines.

The trucks, purchased by theCity of CapeTown at a cost of R3m, are expected to bol-ster response times, especially during thefire season.A first for South Africa, the vehicles’ de-

sign will allow firefighters to negotiate ur-ban and rural terrain with ease.It has GPS functionality, tiptronic gear-

boxes, ample space for equipment and per-sonnel and telescopic lights.Furthermore, its pumpsproducebothwa-

ter and foam, and can operate without apump operator.In addition, the vehicles feature an auto-

matic shutdown when the tank is full, aswell as a tank level indicator.“These vehicles offer us so much more in

terms of accessibility and features, whichmeans that one vehicle can now do whatpreviously required the use of two vehiclesbecause of design limitations.“Sowe can look forward to saving on both

resources and manpower,” says JP Smith,Mayoral Committee member for Safety andSecurity.“When you consider that we spent a little

over R2m on a fire engine four years ago,we really are getting value for money withthe new acquisitions.“There is a huge expectation of our fire-

fighters [at] this time of year and we are do-ing everything possible to equip them to

save lives and properties.”Since the commencement of fire season

last month, more than 1 000 vegetation fireshave been reported, while al total of 47 blaz-es have been reported in informal settle-ments since the beginning of the month.These fires have claimed six lives and 218

structures were destroyed.These statistics are lower than those of

the same period last year.During this period in 2013, there were 56

fires, 358 structures affected and eight fatal-ities andwhile it is less this year, it remainsa concern.Therefore, the council urges residents to

be extra vigilant about fire safety and tonever leave open flames unsupervised,while non-essential appliances should al-ways be switched off and unplugged duringload shedding.“We recently responded to a house fire

where the occupants indicated that thecause may have been a hair straightenerthat had been left on when the electricitywent off. When the power supply was re-stored, it is believed the device overheatedand resulted in the fire,” Smith explains.“So I reallywould like to use this as a cau-

tionary tale and remind residents to makesure that all non-essential appliances areswitched off and unplugged, not just whenthere is anelectricitydisruption, but ingen-eral.“Not only does it reduce the risk of fire,

but also saves on electricity usage.”

Victim support room revampSAMANTHA LEE

@Samantha_Lee121

The Lansdowne Police Station victim-friendly room has been relaunched.The launch forms part of the police’s

annual refurbishment campaign.The makeover was sponsored by Kwik-

spar in Kroomboom Road.Nyanga Cluster commander Major-Gen-

eral Robbie Robberts says he applauds theefforts of volunteers who form part of theVictim Support Unit.“I don’t want to choose favourites but as

far as volunteers go, Lansdownevolunteersare the best in the cluster,” Robberts says.He adds the makeover was much needed.“If we look at the number of cases that

are dealt with daily, it is only normal thatthe furniture would have some wear andtear. We always need it to be a room wherepeople can feel comfortable, have privacyand create an intimate partnership withthe counsellor,” he says.The victim support rooms at all the sta-

tions in the Nyanga Cluster have receiveda makeover and have all adopted the sametheme and colour scheme.Robberts says he is in favour of the deci-

sion.“This theme shows us that there are no

favoured stations. None looks better thanthe other and there are no privileges. Allthe rooms are the same,” he says.Lansdowne Community Police Forum

chairperson Mike Kabat says they are insupport of the revamp.“Wewant to commend thevolunteers and

counsellors for the amazing work they doat the station and we want to implore thatthe police give them more referrals andcounselling to do,” he says.The room got a fresh coat of paint, new

toys and furniture and a mural painted byMural Maniac.Possibilities of taking the unit on the

road were also playfully toyed with at themeeting.Robberts and station commander Colo-

nel Jan Alexander urges residents to makeuse of the facility.“Many residents don’t know that the po-

lice station has this facility,” Robbertssays.The police is the initial point of entry to

the criminal justice system in most cases,and are therefore responsible for ensuringthat the victims of crime – especially sexualoffences and other serious and violentcrimes – are given a victim-friendly servicewhen making cases.Under the rule of law, counsellors and

victim support volunteers are on hand tohelp residents who have experienced trau-ma as a result of serious crimes or acci-dents.Formore information, visit the station or

phone theVictimSupport coordinatorDav-id Hendricks on 083 652 3843 or the VictimSupport Unit office on (021) 944 8220.

OFFICIAL OPENING: Officials cut the ribbon to declare the room open for business.

Vehicle checklist for holiday seasonBefore hitting the road this holiday, checkthe following:

V Tyres: Check air pressure of your tyres,including the spare.

V Batteries: Weak batteries can lead tobreakdowns.

V Brakes: An inspection can determinewhether brakes are functioning properlywith full braking capability.

V Windshield wipers: Old or worn wind-shield wipers can lead to poor visibility.

V Headlamps: Properly aimed head-lamps are a must for optimal visibility, fit-ting Xenon Headlight Bulbs will improveyour visibility as they are 50% brighter

than standard lights.V Oil: Change oil and filter at recom-

mended intervals to minimise engine wearand reduce the possibility of internal dam-age.

V Fluid levels: Improper fluid levels(coolant, oil, power steering, transmission,brake fluid and even washer solvent) cannegatively affect vehicle performance.

V Belts and hoses: A broken belt or rup-tured hose can cause costly engine dam-age.

V Ensure all weekly checks recommend-ed in the owner’s handbook have been per-formed and obey road signs. carsguide.com

NEW TECHNOLOGY

Preventing crashToyota has revealed a range of high-tech

vehicle crash-prevention technology.Toyota’s “integrated safety manage-

ment concept” is designed towork in concertto reduce the number of road crashes.The features were announced at a safety

seminar in Toyota City, Japan, and is set tobe launched in new models in 2015. Toyotais also creating “active safety” packages forvarious vehicles thatwill be available by theend of 2017.At a blind junction even the best vehicle-

cameras and sensors can’t give a clearwarn-ing of hazards. Toyota has worked to elimi-nate the risk with new “vehicle-to-infra-structure and vehicle-to-vehiclecommunications” technology, using a wire-less frequency reserved for Integrated Traf-fic System (ITS) services.For example, if you arrive at junctionwith

no clear view, sensors will detect oncomingtraffic or pedestrians and send the informa-tion to your car, what Toyota calls the “vehi-cle-to-infrastructure system”.Toyota says: “Vehicles approaching the

intersectionwill signal their presence usingthe vehicle-to-vehicle link, activating visualand audio warnings when necessary to helpprevent an accident.”Toyota has developed a new radar cruise-

control to make it easier for preceding andfollowing vehicles to maintain safe follow-ingdistances. It uses a “forward-facingmilli-metre-wave” radar to monitor the distancebetween vehicles ahead and behind, relativespeeds and the acceleration/deceleration ofthe leading car.Automakers are already using such sys-

tems with a consequent improvement insafety, congestion and fuel-efficiency.Toyota says it develops its ITS-compatible

systems in collaboration with governmentbodies, agencies and private companies.

In 2013 Toyota participated in an ITSGreen Safety public-private project to assessthe social effects of such systems. It will alsotake part in the ITSConnect PromotionCon-sortium to support the development of envi-ronments for the smooth introduction ofsuch systems and their widespread adop-tion.Toyota, already implementing auto high

beam and adaptive lighting systems, is de-veloping its next-generation system to deliv-er improved night-time illumination – its“array adaptive high-beam” using LEDs.A similar system was launched recently

by Mercedes-Benz on its CLS in South Afri-ca.The system uses multiple, independently

controlled LEDs arranged in a single row.This gives wider illumination without daz-zling drivers of oncoming or preceding vehi-cles. It can light up the gaps between vehi-cles ahead and those approaching, makingit easier to spot pedestrians.Light distribution is also linked to use of

the steeringwheel, givingbetter visibility asyou turn into a bend.Toyota’s new Safety Sense active safety

package will include an auto high beamfunction.From 2015, Toyota will launch a new set

of active safety technologies designed tohelpprevent or mitigate collisions. Two SafetySense packageswill be launched, initially inJapan and subsequently in the USA and Eu-rope, by the end of 2017.The two packages, designated C and P for

mid-size and larger vehicles respectively,use several of Toyota’s existing active safetytechnologies, including its pre-crash safetysystem, lane keep assist and auto high beam.The C package uses a laser radar and the

P package a millimetre-wave radar, eachcombined with a camera.

AUDI

RS3 Sportbackheaded forSouth AfricaAudi has confirmed its monstrous RS3

Sportback is headed for South Africaequipped with the automaker’s most

powerful production five-cylinder engine, atribute to Audi’s classic cars of the 1980’s.

The latest evolution of the 2.5 five-cylin-der TFSI can make 270kW/465Nm, sent viathe seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch trans-mission to ‘quattro’ all-wheel-drive.

PowerfulFuel consumption is listed as 8.1F/100km

with emissions of 189g/km – which shouldbe something to behold.

Anyway, Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi’sboard member for technical development,told Wheels24: “There’s a long tradition offive-cylinder engines at Audi. In the 1980sthey turned Audi into a sport brand – onroad, track and rallies. This new Audi RS3Sportback has the latest generation of our2.5 five – the most powerful production en-gine in the modular transverse matrix.”

LightAudi’s hottest RS3 rockets to 100km/h in

4.3sec and will keep on accelerating untilelectronically stopped at 250km/h (or280km/h if, Audi says, you have “regularautobahn access”).

Which is a bit of a crockbecausemost sec-tions of such roads are not speed-limited –the coveted black diagonal band across awhite background is fast-disappearing.

Its light construction has shed 55kg to1 520kg, despite more equipment and crashprotection/avoidance features.

LowerCompared to the standard A3 Sportback,

the RS3’s body sits 25mm lower.Track is 1.5mmwider and the suspension

has high-strength aluminium bearings.The rear axle, which has a width of 1.5m,

is a four-link construction with rods ofhigh-strength steel that handle longitudi-nal and lateral forces separately.

It has ventilated disc brakes, 370mm atthe front and 310mm at the rear, with blackeight-piston fixed callipers (red’s an option)and bearing RS logos.

BrakeBuyers can also choose carbon fibre-rein-

forced ceramic brake discs at the front(370mm), with grey callipers.

In terms of design, it has a gloss black,

honeycomb grille with aluminium frameand RS badging.

The front also gains larger air intakesand a generally more sporty treatment.

It has new door sills, aluminium externalmirrors, a large roof spoiler, re-modelledbumpers (with black diffusers) and newoval tailpipes.

Optional extras include 19” titanium orblack alloy rims instead of the standard 19”five-spoked.

The cabin has leather sport seats and flat-bottomed leather-clad RS multifunctionsports steering wheel.

SeatsIt has steel pedals, leather door inserts,

the inlays of which can be black, alumini-um or carbon-fibre. The instruments areframed in black with black-faced dials, redneedles and white scales. The car-informa-tion system is enhancedbyaboost-pressureindicator, oil temperature gauge and laptimer.

For the first time in the compact classAu-di will include its new RS bucket seats withside air bags and a carbon-fibre shell. Thenew seat is 7kg lighter than the standardsports seat.

InteriorThe RS3 Sportback’s interior can be en-

hanced with a design package which in-cluded red accents on the seats, air vents,mats and seat belts.

According to Audi: “The distinctiverhythmof the 1-2-4-5-3 five-cylinder ignitionsequence – the classic Audi soundtrackplayed out since the 1980s by rally cars,touring cars andproductionmodels such asthe Ur quattro, the RS2 and the TT RS –washes over the cabin as thenewRS3Sport-back gathers momentum.

“Two flaps in the exhausts control the ex-haust flow to provide for an even more in-tensive sound experience that varies withengine load and speed and the driver cancontrol the flaps via the Audi drive selectadaptive dynamics system, which is stand-ard. For the first time in an Audi model atthis level, the already fittingly bass-heavyRS exhaust system can be replaced at extracost by an even richer-sounding sports ex-haust upgrade.”

The new Audi RS3 Sportback will arrivein South Africa in the second quarter of2015. – Wheels24

BRAND NEW: The performance version of Audi’s A3, the RS3 Sportback, will arrive in SA later in 2015.

HERITAGE

District Six – 20 years laterThe District Six Museum this month cel-

ebrates two decades of opening itsdoors as a memorial to a decimated

community.Known as a city within a city, District Six

was considered the soul of Cape Town, saysa statement. Its bustling streets, diverse andcolourful residents and deep sense of com-munity are engrained in the memory ofthose who once lived there.

“InFebruary 1966 itwasdeclaredawhites-only area under the Group Areas Act. By1982, the life of this vibrant community wasover.”

More than 60 000 people were forcibly re-moved and the buildings were flattened bybulldozers, the statement reads.

In honour of its 20th birthday, the muse-um will pay tribute to and celebrate the oncevibrant community by reflecting on 20 ob-jects, places and people which “truly epito-mise life in the former District Six”.

These are:. The Van Kalker Studio – Proudly hang-

ing above the family mantelpiece, the all-fa-miliar sight of a Van Kalker photographcould be found in the homes ofmanyDistrictSix residents. The Van Kalker studio in Vic-toria Street became a routine visit for spe-cial events like birthdays, weddings, gradu-ations and christenings.

. Waentjies – To get their fresh produce,residents looked no further than the localfruit and vegetable seller ‘waentjies’, whowould set up shop on Hanover Street.

. Fish horn – The nasal sound of fishhorns signalled the day’s fresh catch. Withfish piled high, residents would flock to thepungent Fish Market (‘vismarkie’) to gettheir share.

. Hanover Street – Dubbed ‘the hub’ ofDistrict Six, Hanover Street was the placewhere you could acquire anything and eve-rything.

. Peninsula Maternity Hospital – Situat-ed between Constitution, Primrose, Caledonand Mount streets, this hospital is wherethousands of District Six residents wereborn.

. Seven Steps – For anyone who lived inthe old District Six, the ‘Seven Steps’ is apowerful symbol of their heritage. To work,home, school, play, church, mosque, shop,celebrate and mourn, these steps carriedthousands of residents on their way.

. Bioscopes – Going to local bioscopes ona Saturday afternoon was a regular treat forresidents and occupied a special position inthe recreational life of the community. TheAvalon, Star, National and the British Bio-scopes doubled as venues for beauty pag-eants, talent shows and musicals.

. Crescent Café – People journeyed fromfar and wide to sample the curry at Mr Kath-rada’s Crescent Cafe in Hanover Street.

. Beinkinstadt – Judaica bookstore – Inits early years, The Beinkinstadt Jewishbookstore was a meeting place for the localJews who, on Friday evenings, would con-gregate there to enjoy the heimishe ‘openhouse’ hospitality of ownersMosheandOlgaBeinkinstadt.

. Kewpie – District Six was legendary forits gay community in the 1950s and Kewpie,the local drag queen, became a figureheadfor District Six’s vibrant characters.

. Koe’sisters – Food played a central rolein the lives of the District Six community.The traditional koe’sister, a delicious spiceddoughnut dipped in syrup and rolled in drycoconut, remains a Sunday morning treatamong District Sixers.

. Fah-fee – Fafi or fa-fi (pronounced fah-fee) was a popular betting game played inDistrict Six, and has been described as the‘poor man’s Roulette’.

. Richard Rive – Rive was a former resi-dent and the well-known writer of the ac-

claimed Buckingham Palace.. Lydia Williams – Affectionately known

as ‘Ou Tamelytjie’, Williams was a formerslave woman who settled in District Six. Sheestablished a school in the area and was afounding member of St Philip’s AnglicanChurch.

. May Abrahamse – Abrahamse startedsinging at age 14 and went on to become oneof SouthAfrica’smost prolific opera singers.With her talent and support from the EoanGroup – a theatre and dance group – sheplayed leading soprano roles inLaTraviata,La Boheme and Madame Butterfly.

. Globe Gang – The Globes – one of themost notorious gangs ofDistrict Six – initial-ly started out as a vigilante group, takingtheir name from the Globe Furnishing Com-pany.

. Music of District Six – The music of Dis-trict Six is legendary…one of the leadinglights of Cape jazz was Dollar Brand (laterknown as Abdullah Ibrahim) who, with hisJazz Epistles, recorded the first jazz LP byblack South African musicians.

. TheRose andCrown–One cannot forgetthe many pubs of District Six. The Rose andCrown was a particular hot spot in HanoverStreet.

. Horse Drawn Carriages – There werethe horse-drawn wedding parades to lookforward to on weekends, where little girlswould eagerly anticipate the beautiful wed-ding parades that took place most Sundays.

. Malay and Christmas Choirs and klopse– On Christmas and New Year’s Eve, resi-dents would prepare to stay up through thenight to watch the Malay and ChristmasChoirs proceed from Tennant Street to Cale-don Street, up Wale Street and ending downat theGrandParade,where theklopsewouldbegin celebrations well into New Year’sevening.

Visitors are encouraged to book a person-

alised tour through the museum with aformer resident ofDistrict Six, for a truly au-thentic experience. Or enjoy self-guidedtours during normal opening hours. Formore information call (021) 466 7200.

Milano losespole positionSHIFAAN RYKLIEF

Milano United lost their top position onthe NFD table, while Cape Town AllStars suffered another setback at this

weekend’s NFD encounters.The People’s Team, Santos, regained their

winning form on Friday evening at the Ath-lone Stadium with a narrow 1-0 win overneighbours Vasco da Gama. The visitorslookedmore threatening and played the bet-ter football, yet, it was Santos who openedup the scoring when Carl Lark found theback of the net in the 37th minute.

FaroukAbrahams’ side defendedwell andheld onto their one-goal lead, and ultimatelywent on to claim the victory following theirthree-match losing streak. Both FC CapeTown and Milano reside in the top five onthe NFD table, which meant a tough contestat theNNKRugbyStadium.SibusisoMasinagave the African Beasts a 1-0 lead into thebreak, but Devon Saal found the back of thenet late in the game to ensure the two sidesshared the spoils. Cape Town All Stars werehanded a setback after losing 3-1 to JomoCosmos following their five-match unbeatenrun. – capetownfootball.co.za

It’s all aboutthe BayDUDLEY CARSTENS

In only three seasons, False Bay RugbyClub have gone from Super League B con-tenders to participants in the Western

Province/Boland regional CommunityChallenge.In their first year back in Western Prov-

ince’s Super League A, Bay secured fifthplace on the log this tear and booked them-selves a spot in the regional tournamentnext year. They will be joined by Belhar, SKWalmers, Primrose and a team from thePaarl Region to represent Western Provinceagainst the best teams from Boland.Baywill face Vredenburg in their opening

fixture of the tournament on Saturday 14February, while last season’s winners Dur-banville-Bellville will not be there to defendtheir crown as theywill compete in theCom-munity Cup tournament.While Bay will be one of the favourites to

mount a serious challenge for the trophy, thetournament will also provide them the op-portunity of testing their depth before next

year’s league season kicks off.Speedy winger Taalieb Johnson tells Peo-

ple’s Post: “It will be a good time to test thedepth at the club and to give guys [fringeplayers or youngsters coming through the‘system’] a shot at playing in league. Theguys have put in a lot of effort [over the off-season] and we will start playing friendlymatches in January already.”Personally, Johnson says he wants to find

“form heading into the league” when play-ing in the Community Challenge.Meanwhile, this year’s Shield finalists SK

Walmers will tackle Never Despair in theiropening encounter, while Primrosewill facelast season’s runners-upHawston in a trickytie.Belhar, who finished a respectable sev-

enth in the WP Super League this year, willface Roses in the opening round.Theopening roundof fixtures onSaturday

14 February: Vredenburg v False Bay; Rosesv Belhar; Saldanha v Paarl Region team;Never Despair v SK Walmers; and Hawstonv Primrose.

winning form after losing their previousthree matches. The new coaching staff ofDesmond Crowie and Zane Ryklief got off toa superb start and guided the Kinnes to a 2-1victory over the Magic, with Shaheed Abra-hams scoring both goals.Zizwe United were unfortunate and suf-

fered their first league loss for the season

Sports facilities across theCape are falling prey to acts ofbrazen vandalism and theft.

A total of 55 sports complexeshave been vandalised and burgledfrom April to last month. A stag-gering 217 incidents have been re-ported during this period, the Cityof Cape Town confirms.

And sports clubs and MunicipalFacility Management Committeesare calling on the City to step upsecurity at its facilities, as theyfear the continuous criminal activ-ities may stifle and end operationsand play at the organisations andfacilities.

Bennet Bailey, chairperson ofthe Rygate Local Football Associa-tion (LFA) which calls JohnsonRoad Sports Complex in Rylandsits home, says vandals stripped thefacility to its core in the first weekof October – only a couple of weeksafter the end of the football season.He claims the damage incurred asa result of the vandalism amountsto R200 000, a cost which they can-not cover.

“The interior of the clubhousewas stripped bare; all the cablingand wiring was removed. The wir-ing of the floodlights was also re-moved and the electricity box wasremoved and damaged,” Bailey ex-plains.

Similarly, chairperson of theMetropolitan LFA Wayne Weitzsays the Metropolitan Sports Com-

plex in Bonteheuwel was hit at theend of October. As a result of theincident, which saw the facilitystripped to resemble a shell, the or-ganisation had incurred the extraexpense of having to replace thetrophies and medals for its annualprizegiving days before the event.

“Everything was fine during theseason expect for the odd burglary,but when the season ended andthere was less activity at the facili-ty, the criminals pounced,” hesays. “The MFMC is constantly re-minded that it is not the owner ofthe facility, but only the custodi-ans. Yet the owner, the City,doesn’t take responsibility for itsassets.”

In local sporting circles, Weitzadds, there has been talk of severalfacilities being vandalised over thelast couple of months. “There wasa time when security guards wereplaced at the facility, but they in-formed us their contract had cometo an end and that was the end ofsecurity,” he explains.

“The City spends millions [on]upgrades and maintaining facili-ties, so I believe they should pro-tect it or the work will be useless.”People’s Post has previously re-

ported on the burglary and vandal-ism of several sports facilitiesacross the peninsula over the lastcouple of months. These includethe Stephan Reagan, Rocklandsand Strandfontein sports complex-es and Swartklip Indoor SportsCentre in Mitchell’s Plain, the Hoo-sain Parker Sports Complex in

Parkwood and the Johnson RoadSports Complex.

Furthermore, People’s Post’s sis-ter publication TygerBurger hasreported on incidents at theWesbank Sports Complex, Durban-ville Sports Complex and Ruyter-wacht Sports Complex, while itsother sister publicationCity Visionreported on an incident at the Gug-ulethu and Philippi swimmingpools. Incidents of burglary andvandalism were also reported atclubhouses at Kraaifontein SportsComplex.

Despite the reported number ofincidents, the City says it cannotprovide continuous security pres-ence at the its public open spacesand facilities.

Mayoral Committee member forCommunity Services and SpecialProjects, Belinda Walker, says a“limited budget” of R36m was allo-cated for security in the Sport, Rec-reation and Amenities Departmentbudget.

“The department has had to ra-tionalise the use of security per-sonnel at some of its facilities to re-main within the allocated budgetin the current financial year for se-curity services,” she says.

“The department manages alarge number of public facilitiesacross the city and has identifiedhotspots where facilities are par-ticularly vulnerable to theft andvandalism – security personnelwill be present at these facilities. Itis closely monitoring these facili-ties to find the most effective and

financially sustainable options forsecuring them against theft andvandalism.”

But human presence in the formof security guards may not be theonly option, Walker adds, as theCity has invested considerablywith the erection of fences and in-stallation of alarms.

It is also working to establishpartnerships with community or-ganisations such as neighbour-hood watches to assist them in de-terring theft and vandalism at fa-cilities.

The City has spent R4,8m on re-

pairs and replacing items at facili-ties which have fallen victim totheft and vandalism, Walker con-firms. “This is money that couldhave been put to better use to ei-ther upgrade these facilities or pro-vide additional facilities in areaswhere there are limited or no sportand recreation facilities,” she says.

“Now, more than ever, we needour communities to work in collab-oration with us and take owner-ship of their recreational spaces.We urge residents to report anysuspicious behaviour immediate-ly.”
