We have many groups putting out information without verifying it. When unsubstantiated information is put out there, it causes unnecessary paranoia in the community. There are many social me- dia groups which use unreliable informa- tion. This is not a good idea. These groups must also not accept everyone into their groups because they could be using the in- formation for the wrong reasons,” Kabat points out. Kenwyn Ratepayers’ Association chair- person and former provincial CPF board chairperson Hanif Loonat agrees. “It is a good idea to use social media to fight crime. However, this should not be used to discuss crime combating routines. Criminals also use social media and they can see your plans and use this information against you,” he says. Kabat says the CPF has been in discussion about their use of social media. “We support the neighbourhood watches and street committees making use of these platforms. But the information that is dis- tributed must come from a reliable source,” Kabat reiterates. “I am included in 12 of these social media groups and I would like to see these adminis- trations exercise more control over what is shared. When residents get involved in dis- cussing crimes in detail, especially when they are not mandated to do so, they can jeopardise investigations. This is especially true in the distribution of pictures of some- one in custody. Defence lawyers can use this against the police,” he says. Loonat suggests these groups use the chat- rooms more thoughtfully. “These groups can be used to better the lives of your neighbours by discussing trends and tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of crime. This platform should be used to educate residents but should not be abused and used to create fear,” he says. Last year, 12 new neighbourhood watches have been formed with the majority of them making use of social media.

MODIFIED CAR PROPOSAL

Regulation ‘is ridiculous’CHEVON BOOYSEN

@ChevonBooysen

Proposed regulations to clamp down on“illegalmodifications and illegal rac-

ers” seem to have had a false start.The new regulation, made public two

weeks ago and which are to be added to theTraffic Regulations Act, caused an uproaramong the motoring fraternity. The pro-posed regulation seeks to “impose stricterfines on illegal racers and cars that aremodi-fied”, says a media release.Enthusiasts are now banding together to

take a stand against the proposed regula-tion.Meanwhile City of Cape Town safety and

security mayco member JP Smith said histeam will impose stricter fines on driversfound guilty of taking part in illegal races.He saidmedia reports that he andhis team

“plan to target drivers of modified vehicles”are “worryingly inaccurate”.“For the record, the City’s Traffic Service

is mandated to enforce the provisions of theNational Road Traffic Act No. 93 of 1996.[This is] a national piece of legislationwhichstates that anymodification of or tamperingwith a vehicle’s safety design renders the ve-hicle unroadworthy unless it is done by themanufacturer or a registered body builder,”Smith says.But car enthusiasts and the after-market

industry wants clarity on what this regula-tion will mean in practical terms.Cape TownCar Enthusiasts (CTCE) repre-

sentative Kersten Greybe says confusionhas many motorists driving in fear.“People are scared to even just drive their

cars to the corner shops since the announce-

ment. Nobody knowswhat is happening andno answers have been given and we need toknow exactly what this means for the CapeTown car culture,” she says.Greybe says more people in the modified

car circle are selling their cars. “People areopting to sell their cars because they don’twant criminal records or to pay steep finesthat may land them in court eventually. Theproposed [regulation] is ridiculous and willnever work.”She agrees it is good to clamp down on ille-

gal racing as it “endangers the car culturein the province”. “Clamping down on illegalracers I can understand as they are a hazardon the road. But to paint everybody with thesame brush is horribly unfair.”She adds that manymotorists take part in

events at Killarney Raceway, but immedi-ately after events “we find ourselves in aroadblock, just outside the venue. What isthe point of practising your sport legally butyou’re victimised anyway?”She started an online petition to prevent

the proposed regulation being passed. At thetime of the interview she represented 20 000motorists. “We want our voices to be heard.For too longwe have been underdogs andwehave now decided to educate ourselves withregard to the proposed [regulation]. We ar-en’t artists with canvasses so ourmasterpie-ces are our cars,” she says.Interpretation of and enforcing the letter

of the law is also at issue. Online posts havebeen buzzing with incidents of clampdowns.Ghost Squad officers have, meanwhile,

been fining drivers of modified vehicles andeven confiscating their car licence discs.Two drivers, in a post on Facebook, were

en route to Killarneywhen theywere arrest-

ed for allegedly speeding. The officers alsotook their car licence discs. One driverwasfined R4000 for “inconsiderate driving andwheelspinning”.He posted that an officer said he would

“make an example of us because we are thepeople talking bad [sic] of them on socialmedia”.He posted: “We spent our legal race night

with real criminals. The Ghost Squad offi-cer did everything in his ability to lock usup although the police at the police stationdid not want him to do so because of thepetty offence.”But Smith maintains the City’s law en-

forcement agencies “enforce the provi-sions of these nationally mandated regula-tions”.Another motorist, who does not want to

be named, says the proposed regulation isdoomed.“It will never work,” he says. “They ha-

ven’t thought this through. The motoringindustry is huge and understandably peo-ple are in uproar. We feel victimised andhave no clarity as Smith changes his storyevery other day.”He says he is afraid to drive his car any-

where because the Ghost Squad is instill-ing fear in drivers.“I had lots of modifications done to my

car, so it may perform better. I spent a lotof time and money on it only to now not besure if I can drive around with it as theGhost Squad has been targeting modifiedcars since the release of the article a weekago.”Registered tuner shops say they fear the

after-market industry will be under threatshould the bylaw impose stricter laws onanybody with a modified vehicle.Yaseen Abrahams, of CPi Performance

Innovation Cape Town, says they are“highly concerned” with the outlawing ofcar modifications.“CPi only engages in legal modification

of cars and our work is of the highest stan-dard. Outlawing modifications will have ahuge impact on the industry. Surely if indi-viduals abide by the law it is their right tomodify their cars as they wish,” Abrahamssays.The regulations are to be in effect in

April, but Smith adds the enactment of theregulations is the responsibility of the pro-vincial transport division.“The City has lobbied for the inclusion

of impoundment of vehicles where ownersare caught participating in illegal street ra-ces, steep vehicle release fees to act as a fur-ther deterrent, stricter penalties formotor-ists (including prison terms) especiallythose who try to evade the law when con-fronted and suitable penalties for specta-tors at illegal street races to be included inthe Act,” says Smith, who adds fitments byregistered after-market tuners are legal ifthe proper process has been followed.V What do you think the City should do to clampdown on illegal racers?

Proposed new regulations to stamp out illegal racing have been met with disbelief by the modified motoring fraternity. Many claim it will be difficultto enforce and say they’re being victimised because of the assumption that modified cars are used in illegal races. PHOTO: CHEVON BOOYSEN

GF JOOSTE

New hospital to be builtTARREN-LEE HABELGAARN

@LeeLaVidaLoca

Vandalised to the core, GF Jooste Hospi-tal will have to be rebuilt. The facilityhas been vacant since last July in prep-

aration for a multimillion rand upgrade.But extensive vandalism has resulted in

a health department decision to build a newfacility from scratch, following enquiries.The current infrastructure will be demol-

ished. A date has not yet been set for this tohappen.Meanwhile, patients will have to take re-

course to medical services elsewhere.Emergency medical services previously

rendered at GF Jooste have been temporari-ly relocated toHeideveldCommunityHealthCareCentre,while Mitchell’s PlainHospitalwill provide emergencies and other healthservices.This is, until the new GF Jooste Hospital

is constructed.The provincial health department has

confirmed a replacement hospital is beingplanned and the existing hospital will there-fore not be upgraded as a previously indicat-ed (“Hospital stripped as thieves, vandalshit”, People’s Post, 18 November).The initial upgrade, at a cost ofR785m,was

scheduled to take place this year.Over the past fewmonths the hospital has

been stripped to the bone and buildingmate-rials were stolen from the premises.Healthdepartment spokespersonEmeran-

tia Cupido says new premises have yet to bedecided upon for the new hospital.

“GF Jooste Hospital will be rebuilt in thesame vicinity,” she confirms.Custodianship of the infrastructure is,

meanwhile, relinquished to the provincial

transport and public works department.In the interim measures are being taken

to prevent further vandalismand theft at the

facility.“The custodian has secured the premises

as far as possible and security is on site,”

says Cupido.Approval has already been given to re-

build the hospital, but a date has yet to beset for commencement of the project.Glenda Arendse, of Manenberg, says resi-

dents do not want to travel outside the areafor medical care.“I don’t want to travel far from home to

go to ahospital. I think it is completelyunac-ceptable that a high crime area like Manen-berg is currently operating without a hospi-tal. People have to travel far to get to anotherhospital and those hospitals are already toofull,” she says.“Many of the people are seniors who don’t

have transport and walk to the hospital. Iworry about how they will get to Mitchell’sPlain and I’m also concerned about theirsafety in those high risk and unfamiliar are-as.”Resident Kashiefa Richards says it is not

the first time residents are being sent out ofthe neighbourhood for medical services.“Every few years something like this hap-

pens where changes are made to people’sroutines and then it is the elderlywho suffer.It is not fair.”Klipfontein sub-district health forum

chairperson Isgaak Kamaar says movinghealth services such as emergency servicesfrom certain areas is a step backwards.“The point of having multiple dispensing

points is tomake theworkload at healthcarefacilities more equal.“By taking away one facility you cause an

overload at another.“The point of these facilities is also to cre-

ate a convenient and quick service for pa-tients so that they don’t have to wait in longqueues,” he says.“This just defeats the purpose.”

Only the shell remains of GF Jooste Hospital, which will now no longer be upgraded. A newhospital is to be built. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

COMMUNITY RESOLUTIONS

A look aheadSAMANTHA LEE

@Samantha_Lee121

Greater focus on youth development.Improved assistance for the disen-franchised. Tackling crime and social

ills. Teamwork with roleplayers.These are some of the New Year’s resolu-

tions community leaders aim to address in2015.

And while others may have given up ontheir resolutions, leaders in various com-munity structures polled were happy toshare their ideals for this year. Read on tosee which challenges feature prominentlyon their agendas.

Lansdowne Ratepayers’ Association secretaryand spokesperson Ebrahiem Hull says hewould like to see promises fulfilled. “Thisyear I want to see the full integration of theFlamingo Crescent informal settlement. Wehave had meetings about having themintegrated into the community and promiseswere made. I want to see it fulfilled andalso for us to dig deeper than just the crimeissues. Another problem area is dealing withprostitution and putting pressure on oursecurity fraternity.”

Hanover Park community worker Elsie Debruynsays she wants things to go back to the waythey were. “Hanover Park is not what it usedto be. Daily shootings need to stop. Parentsalso need to start taking responsibility fortheir children. We are having meetings to dosomething about this but for this year, I justwant to see the killings end. We need to goto the schools to address these issues. Thegovernment must step in to start programmesto get the youngsters off the streets.”

RIGHT: Kenwyn Ratepayers’ Associationchairperson Hanif Loonat says communitiesneed to focus on the youth. “I would like tosee more focus put on youth developmentand as communities we must remind theyouth that there are alternatives to drugabuse and gangsterism. If we don’t dosomething we will lose a generation of youth.If this happens we will also lose a generationof leaders. Focusing on the youth will ensurewe tackle crime, oppression, suppression andmarginalisation.”

Manenberg community worker Soraya Samsonsays she wants to see residents takingownership of their community. “I want to seeno children on the streets, no gangsters and Iwant the community centres to be availablefor the children. Nothing is in place to help usachieve these goals yet, but we look forwardto having others come on board. We need tosee local councillors, police and governmentoffering programmes to children from six yearsto breed the next generation of leaders.”

Lanroe Neighbourhood Watch and Ratepay-ers’ Association spokesperson Hylton Mitchellsays in 2015 he wants to see progress. “Iwould like to see the establishment of theSpecial Ratings Area in our community. Weneed to address key issues such as safetyand security, aid vagrants and job creation. Iwould also like to see the increase of oursocial media platforms to branch out tomore residents. I would also like to see usincrease our neighbourhood watch networkto become a better and tighter unit.”

Omar Peters has beenvoted the winner in thePeople’s Post First Day ofSchool Photo Competi-tion. The Grade R pupilat Liesbeeck PrimarySchool, Mitchell’s Plain,garnered 2415 votes fromreaders, with RebeccaHendricks from RosebankJunior School takingsecond place with 1929votes.

Dirt issues surface againTARREN-LEE HABELGAARN

@LeeLaVidaLoca

Illegal dumping and theft along Duinefon-tein Road have residents demanding bet-ter service delivery.Committee worker Rashieda Abrahams

says the street is linedwith rubbish and shefears the broken fencing along the railwayline is an accident waiting to happen.

“Dumping and the theft of bricks and fen-cing along roads have been raised in morethan one community meeting. Not only is ita health hazard but a safety hazard too,” shesays.

“If the fencing isn’t replaced it is easy forchildren to cross the railway tracks as ashortcut.”

Resident AshleyWilliams says the contin-uous dumping attracts rats and flies to thearea and she worries about potential diseas-es.

“It is unhygienic, I know that residentsare to blame for a lot of the dirt, but thatdoesn’t mean it should be left there forweeks.”

Mayoral Committee Member for UtilityServices Ernest Sonnenberg says illegaldumping is a problem along DuinefonteinRoad and the Department of Solid WasteManagement’s CleansingBranch is aware ofit.

“The area is cleaned as frequently as re-sources allow, but it has been establishedthat the majority of the dumping is per-formed by the local community,” he says.

“The City appeals to residents to use com-munity forums and other platforms of en-gagement available to them to rally theirmembers to stop dumping and to use theCity’s drop-off sites.”

Dumping is an ongoing challenge in thecity, for which there is “little good reason”,says Sonnenberg.

“All residents receiveweekly door-to-doorrefuse collection services and, in addition tothis, the City offers all residents the use of25 drop-off facilities across the city.”

Residents are encouraged to use these fa-cilities, free of charge, for the disposal of ex-cess waste.

Residents can contact the City’s call cen-tre on 0860 103 089 to report illegal dumpingor sewer blockages.

The area borders a railway line.Acting regional manager for Metrorail,

Louis Beukes, says the regional head of pro-tection services and the commander of therailway police take note of concerns raised

of fencing left along Duinefontein Road, inaddition to the illegal dumping.

He explained that the region does its ut-most to expedite the replacement of fencingand walling.

“We continue to motivate for additionalfunding but we are also acutely aware thatwe are competing for finite resources,” saysBeukes.

He says this is within the context that thepurpose of railway fencing is to primarilydemarcate boundaries. In many instancesthe fencing is still serviceable in the contextof this purpose. Fencing replacement and re-pairs are planned and prioritised annually

in terms of urgency and implemented ac-cording to available funding.

“Due to the vastness of the region and re-sources available, replacement and repairhas to be prioritised against other fencingprojects. Theprioritisation is basedona riskassessment comprising a number of crite-ria,” he says.

Beukes explained that the region’s horti-cultural requirements far exceed the resour-ces available to it and the clearance of rubbleis directed at keeping the railway tracksclear and safe for rail operations.V Starting with the word “Post”, SMS your thoughtsto 32516. SMSes cost R1.

Beach outings soured by ‘double standards’We visited four beaches during our15-day stay in Cape Town: Camps Bay,Seaforth, Fish Hoek and Mnandi. Whatbothered me the most was the doublestandards applied when it comes to howyou get treated at these beaches.Camps Bay was our first stop for a dip

in the ocean. With our cooler box, towelsand sunscreen lotion we were lucky toget one of those beautiful blue umbrellas.The day was world class in terms ofamenities.New Year’s Day we went with the

extended family to Mnandi Beach, as wewere assured it had been “upgraded”. Iwas amazed that the place had noparking for disabled persons near thepool.Imagine my horror when a law en-

forcement officer decides that the samecooler box [used at] Camps Bay must besearched. I refused as it contained myfood and I was not sure how clean hishands were.On what did he base the decision to

search my cooler box? It did not happenonce at Camps Bay.I informed him if he can come with

clean hands and food safety gloves, mycooler box is all his.I am back in Johannesburg, and I’m

still waiting for him.The straw that broke the camel’s back

was having to witness elderly people,including my dad, stripped of theirdignity when they had to relieve them-selves behind cars and dunes as someonehad decided there was no urgency toopen the public toilets.After several requests, it was finally

opened at 11:30.It made sense why it was kept locked.

It was filthy and vandalised. This wasthe site that greeted everyone who didnot want to be fined for relieving them-selves behind cars and dunes.I am not for one moment crying racism

or any similar overused words, as thecleanliness of Cape Town is what weshould strive for.Why are the same world class stan-

dards at Camps Bay, Fish Hoek andSeaforth beaches not applied at MnandiBeach? Why search people and theirproperty at Mnandi, and not at CampsBay or Fish Hoek beaches?

Belinda Walker, Mayoral CommitteeMember for Community Services andSpecial Projects, responds: The Citydoes not wish to apply double standardsin terms of how any of our facilities arerun; rather, we aim to ensure that allour facilities are welcoming, inclusiveand safe spaces for the public to enjoy.The writer’s concerns were fully

investigated by both the manager forCoastal Coordination and the director ofSport, Recreation and Amenities (SRA).Given that 31 December is New Year’s

Eve and with peak season there is likelyto be a swathe of beach-goers accessingour facilities, the City makes every effortto ensure our facilities are well-preparedand in a clean, tidy condition. Ablutionsat beaches are open from 09:00 to 18:00and these amenities are serviced daily bydedicated cleaning staff throughout the

day. During the Christmas and New Yearperiod, staff gave assurance the ablutionsat Mnandi beach were open on time.The Coastal Coordination manager did

not receive any complaints about theablutions being closed nor any com-plaints about their condition. In suchinstances, updates and reports areprovided by the Disaster Risk Manage-ment Centre straight away and giventhat SRA did not receive any complaints,this letter came as a surprise. Neverthe-less, we sincerely apologise for anynegative experience that the writer mayhave had.

. Richard Bosman, of the City’s safetyand security directorate, responds:With regard to searches done on beaches,the City’s bylaws prohibit the introduc-tion, possession and consumption ofalcohol on beaches. In spite of this, manypeople contravene regulations – oftenwith devastating consequences. Over thepast festive season, staff confiscated11 570 bottles of alcohol from the beaches– an increase of 3200 bottles comparedwith the previous year. We also reporteda dramatic drop in the number ofdrowning incidents over the same period.Law enforcement staff conduct searches

at all beaches. It is easier to do this atsome beaches where access control iseasier to manage, compared with CampsBay which is an open access beach. Atthe latter, officers have to rely onroaming patrols to spot infringements,instead of searching vehicles and confis-cating alcohol as people enter the beacharea.

Locals should learn from foreignersWhenever there are xenophobic outburstsit would seem the looting is an act ofenvy of the foreigners opening up smallbusinesses in our communities.These businesses are set up in homes,

garages or containers and they sell foodand other basic necessities cheaply tolocal communities.Although they are mostly small busi-

nesses, it can be an antidote to unemploy-ment. Those who operate these shopsemploy people from the local communityand they make a decent living.Our fellow South Africans should learn

from our foreign neighbours and beencouraged to take that bold step andopen their own spaza shops.South Africans should perhaps source

partnerships with the poorer communi-ties and finance a few residents to openup shops.If there is a low-cost housing communi-

ty or informal settlements in my area,choose a few homeowners and becomelegal business partners with them.If you have a car, go to the big whole-

salers and buy and deliver stock to thepartners. Have a meeting every Friday onprofits, stocktaking and expansion.

KEITH BLAKE

The streets of Cape Town can be a cold and hard placefor the homeless.Probably the city’smost vulnerable group, street people

are old friends with hunger, addiction, abuse and illness.Yet we are told not to encourage homelessness.We are advised to report street people, refrain from giv-

ing directly to them and leave their fates in the hands ofthe municipality and night shelters.Because to not do this is to be “irresponsible”.This would make for an admirable plan, if those very

authorities were capable of assisting street people in linewith the promises they make.The City of Cape Town recently stated its Early Child-

hood Development Directorate had assisted 150 homelesspeople off the street over a three-month period, endingin December.At this rate, the City is assisting less homeless people

each month than it has fieldworkers.There are about 9000 people living on the street.If even a third of these street people wanted assistance,

it would take the City’s 64 fieldworkers and 13 reintegra-tion officers five years to relocate them from the city’sstreets.Nevermind the scores of peoplemigrating to the streets

daily.This is despite the City receiving assistance from a

number city improvement districts across the metrowhich have incorporated fieldworkers and rehabilitationprogrammes into their mandate.This service is borne out of care for one’s fellow man,

not legislation.One could by all means ‘give responsibly’ and leave as-

sisting street people to the municipality – if only one feltthose very authorities cared for their residents, bothhoused and living on the street.Real action is needed.

NEW ALBUM

Homecoming of noteLOUISA STEYL

@LouNotes

Music should move listeners anduplift the spirit.

This is the opinion of local dou-ble and electric bass player and compo-ser Benjamin Jephta, who aims to doexactly that with the Benjamin JephtaQuintet’s debut album, Homecoming.

Benjamin recorded the 12-track albumat Sumo Sound Studios in Johannes-burg, where he now lives, but says hetried to hold on to stories from “home”,which for him is Mandalay inMitchell’sPlain where he grew up.

Although he’s only 22, Benjamin hasalready shared the stage with big nameslike Alvin Dyers, Jimmy Dludlu, Camil-lo Lombard, Simphiwe Dana, MelanieScholtz andMi Casa. ButHomecoming isa way for the bassist to reconnect withwhyhe chose to be amusician in the firstplace.

TrendyAfter completing his school career at

Muizenberg High School, Benjamin mo-ved on to study jazz at the South AfricanCollege of Music at UCT.

He explains that musicians are oftentaught about musical concepts and gen-re along with what’s “trendy”. For him, thismeant taking on whatever current genrewas considered “hip” and imitating the mu-sicians he looks up to, but in the process,Benjamin says he lost track of the spirit ofhis own music and the essence of what firstinspired him to play.

Homecomingwas born out of the idea thatBenjamin felt he has something to “say”mu-

sically. “I also felt that what I was doing wasuniqueand that it had tobedocumented, andan album is a great way of doing that,” hesays.

In order to capture the spark that madehim fall in love with music, Benjamin wan-ted to explore his own history and incorpo-rate it into the sound of the album.

“Having been raised on the Cape Flats in

Mitchell’s Plain and coming through thechurch, I want to give the listener a mu-sical biography of my life by using theharmonies and melodies associatedwith that upbringing.”

In fact, one of his favourite songs onthe album is One for the Plein, which hewrote for his home suburb. “The bandalways enjoys playing this live, becauseit has the ability to go anywhere.”

The band Benjamin is referring to in-cludes Kyle Shepherd (2014 StandardBankYoungArtistAwardwinner) onpi-ano, Sphelelo Mazibuko on drums, Mar-cusWyatt on trumpet and SisonkeXontion sax.

Another favourite is Hymn for Ada, asong Benjamin wrote for Ada Loff fromhis local church who passed away fromcancer. He says the song celebrates herlife, and like One for the Plein, keeps de-veloping.

Ultimately, Benjamin says, the com-positions on Homecoming are “quitesimple and lyrical”.

“For me the beauty lies in the wayeach musician interpreted the music al-lowing it to speak into your spirit.”

Keep writingWhile he’s currently promoting the al-

bum, Benjamin hopes to play moreshowswith the quintet to develop the band’ssound as a collective and, of course, keepwriting new music.Homecoming will be available at African

Music Store and Up Beat Music in CapeTown from mid-February. Fans can alsokeep an eye on www.benjaminjephta.comfor information on when the album will beavailable online and his Cape Town shows.

Benjamin Jephta hopes to uplift and move peoplewith his new album. PHOTO: SUPPLIED
