A damp disgrace

Overflow caused by

illegal connections

MADELEINE CHAPUT

FED FED UP residents of West Bank

Kristen and Abraham Kriel have been

living with damp walls in their home

in Strand Street for months, caused

by an overflow of water from a neighbouring

proper t y.

The water, the couple says, comes from

the neighbouring property on 19 Jackson

Street. The overflow has seeped through

the family's rented flat walls, causing

major damage.

According to the Kriels, the property on 19

Jackson Street is being used by the

Oceanic Hotel, but it is owned by Rent Trust.

“We realised there was a problem in July

last year when, a few weeks after giving it

a fresh coat of paint, our lounge wall was

completely damp,” said Kristen.

The Kriel family lodged a complaint with

Buffalo City Municipality and requested

that a BCM waterworks superintendent

assess the premises.

According to them, this resulted in the

discovery that the stormwater overflow

was caused by a series of alleged illegal

connections made on the property. The

family contacted various perceived

stakeholders, including the Oceanic Hotel

management and Rent Trust, who agreed

to investigate the issue further, but have

not contacted the family since November

last year.

“We just want this to get fixed. The

dampness has caused so many electrical

problems and our son is constantly at the

doctor with chest problems because of it,”

said Abraham.

After contacting Rent Trust's managing

t rustee Mathys Wehmeyer, it was

discovered that the issue was more

complex and Rent Trust were dealing with

the same dampness on their properties.

“I have personally inspected the matter

of the excess stormwater and drainage at

19 Jackson Street, and I have established

that the main cause is from the gutter

HEALTH CONCERN:The inside of the Kriels’ lounge

walls of their home at 64 Strand Street, West

Bank. The dampness in their home has been

caused by an overflow of stormwater

system in the buildings at 17 Jackson

St reet,” Wehmeyer said.

“These roofs are discharging rainwater

into the 19 Jackson Street property, as well

as directly on to two of our apartments

causing the same problem that is being

experienced at 64 Strand Street.

“I am of the opinion that this building that

has been erected at the back of the property

of 17 Jackson Street, has been constructed

without approved building plans.”

“It would be in the interest of all parties

to resolve this matter, but why has nothing

been done by BCM? I tried to obtain

contact details for the owners of the

property on 17 Jackson Street from BCM,

but without success,” said Wehmeyer.

According to Kristen, a BCM

representative visited the site on Tuesday.

“I took him next door and showed him the

problem, but he said there is nothing BCM

can do because it is on private property.”

BCM spokeswoman Bathandwa Diamond

confirmed this.

“It is the owners of the neighbouring

property who need to fix the problem. We

will, however, see if there are any other

avenues we can take in an effort to

encourage the owners to fix it.”

No response had been received to

questions sent to the Oceanic Hotel at the

time of going to press.

Putting wind in youngsters’ sails

Free sailing

course great

opportunity

MADELEINE CHAPUT

THE Buffalo River Yacht Club

(BRYC) is giving youngsters from

around Buffalo City a

once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to

earn a sailing skipper's licence.

Taught by Buffalo River Sailing

School co-owners Erich Jordan

and John Atterbury, a total of 47

youngsters have been attending

a sailing course every Saturday

from 9am to 4pm during the

month of February.

“The Buffalo River Sailing

School has been around for a

long time and we’ve often found

that many young people are very

interested in learning how to

sail, but more often than not are

unable to afford it,” Jordan said.

“This is our way of trying to

give them an opportunity and

make the sport more accessible

SHIPS AHOY! A few of the young people taking part in the competent crew sailing course after

to them,” he said.

Ending off this weekend, the

course is offered free of charge

and upon completion, the

youngsters will receive a South

African Sailing (SAS)-accredited

competent crew certificate.

“This certificate is the first

step towards earning your

skipper’s ticket. Once they

complete the course, they will be

able to confidently work as

onboard crew members,” said

Jordan.

The month-long course

included a two-hour theory

lesson, where nautical terms and

navigation is taught, as well as a

three-hour sailing lesson, where

the theory is practically applied.

Seven BRYC skippers h av e

joined in, giving their time and

their yachts to help Jordan and

Atterbury give the youngsters

practical experience on board.

“It’s been very rewarding to

see the teamwork and

camaraderie that has gone into

this. The club as a whole has

been extremely supportive, a lot

of effort and sacrifice has gone

into this programme, but the

kids really do make it all

wor thwhile,” said Jordan.

He said 33 of the youngsters

doing the course were from

George Randell High School,

with many of them considering a

future career in the industry.

The school has a maritime

economics and nautical sciences

elective, which pupils can

choose to do as part of their

syllabus from Grade 10.

This course aims to give them

a tangible sailing experience as

many of them have never been

on a boat before.

“I am so grateful for what

BRYC are doing for my pupils,”

the school’s subject head

Miranda Giyose said.

Echoing the sentiments of

many of the pupils, Grade 12

George Randell pupil A ya b o n g a

Spelt expressed how much he

enjoyed the practical element of

the course.

“The sailing is by far my

favourite part. It has increased

my understanding and taught

me so much more about the

industry. I’d definitely like to sail

as a hobby one day, but I’d love

to be a deepsea diver or a

maritime lawyer,” said Spelt.

“Learning the terminology and

navigation terms has probably

been the most difficult part of

the course. It’s also quite

physically demanding, but I’m

confident and really interested in

a career in this field one day,”

Grade 10 George Randell pupil

Zukhanye Tempi said.

The course is the culmination of

a year-long process which started

with two open days last year.

The course was open to

anyone between the ages of 16

and 30, with both Atterbury and

Jordan hoping to run a similar

course next year.

Through this course, BRYC are

hoping to elect a youth

committee and host regular

races and events in an effort to

get the youth more involved in

the sport.

“We're hoping to raise some

funds and buy two more smaller

yachts so we can have regular

events and the kids can race

fa i r l y, ” Jordan said.

“These kids have been

phenomenal. They have grasped

concepts well and really applied

the theory we’ve taught them. It

has been a real privilege to

teach them,” Jordan said.

Putting back pride in pupils’ step

SIVENATHI GOSA

MDANTSANE non-profit organisation

Project Khulisanani (PK) handed over

more than 200 pairs of school shoes to

pupils from five schools at Mdantsane

City Mall on Friday.

PK founder Bohlale Buzani said the

organisation was initiated a year ago to

raise funds for school essentials such as

shoes and uniforms, but it expanded

with a vision of implementing

programmes that will contribute to the

inclusive development of the community.

“The organisation is led by the youth

of the community. Our mission is for it

to grow nationwide – little by little, one

step at a time. We will start small so we

can finish big,” Buzani said.

Project Khulisanani donated 207 pairs

of school shoes and shoe polishes to

Zukisa Junior Primary School,

Phakamile Primary School, Nkululeko

Senior Primary, Mzomhle High School

and Ulwazi Secondary School.

Nkululeko Senior Primary School

teacher Ntombekhaya Zamane said she

was grateful for the donations made by

PK to the school.

“We are a school based in NU 1. The

pupils come from homes that depend

on social grants as the majority of their

parents are unemployed. What PK has

done will bring a huge amount of relief

to the pupils as it will boost their

self-esteem by gaining confidence and

getting the education they deserve,”

Zamane said.

Mzomhle High School teacher

Bongiwe Ngomana echoed the words of

Zamane, saying she was also proud and

grateful towards the organisation.

“I taught some of the PK members,

which makes me proud because they

are giving back to the community, as

well as inspiring the youth to work hard

in order to achieve their dreams.”

Surprise Valentine’s Day for Choc kids

SIVENATHI GOSA

CHILDREN from the Childhood

Cancer Foundation South

Africa (Choc), who are

suffering from cancer, enjoyed

a special Valentine’s Day

thanks to local manufacturing

company, Little Green

Beverages, that sent the

children heart-warming and

encouraging messages to mark

the special day.

Sales administrator of the

company, Diana Schutz, said

she was listening to a radio

interview with a five-year-old

School just like these young pupils and

I am proud of that. I had a dream of

being a rugby player and chased my

goal until I achieved it. Achieving your

girl suffering from leukaemia,

and was touched by what the

girl shared about her journey

with the illness.

“That radio interview stirred

up my emotions because I

could not imagine her small

body going through the

suffering and pain that she had

to endure. I then told the

general manager, Elsabé van

Biljoen, who helped me by

making a difference in the

children’s lives,” said Schutz.

Schutz said they raised funds

for Choc by selling chocolate

and badges to their co-workers.

“This is the first time that we

are doing something like this,

and I am sure it won’t be the

last. My colleagues and I made

cards for the children, and

wrote short meaningful

messages to each child, just to

let them know that we are

thinking of with them in their

cancer battle. We managed to

raise R3 600 for the

o r g a n i s at i o n , ” said Schutz.

Debbie Kleinenberg said Lit tle

accomplishments,” Kebe said.

Day last Thursday. Kleinenberg

said they honoured the day by

remembering those who had

lost their battle with the

disease and to share

encouraging words with those

fighting it.

“Since we are a NPO we rely

on donations, fundraising

events and just the generosity

of the community. It is a

struggle to make ends meet in

maintaining the organisation,

as we have two here in East

London for families from out of

town who need

accommodation while in

Concern over grounds

DESMOND COETZEE

REPRESENTATIVES of

different sporting codes

have welcomed the

resolutions taken during a

heated meeting held about

the poor state of the local

sports grounds in Breidbach

on Friday morning.

The meeting between

Buffalo City Municipality

(BCM) and the club

representatives was

organised and convened by

the local South African

National Civic Organisation

(Sanco) branch.

Sanco’s branch secretary

Stacey Gosling said the

meeting was organised

because of the challenges

faced by the local sporting

fraternity and some serious

complaints received by the

community about the poor

state of their local sports

grounds.

IN BAD SHAPE: The old and dilapidated sports infrastructure has become a common concern for many sporting

representatives in and around the Breidbach community

Pictures: DESMOND COETZEE

Pioneers Cricket Club

of f i c i a l Thomas Hill

complained about pitch

covers, ropes and wanted

the nets to be upgraded.

He also complained about

supporters parking their

vehicles on the pitch during

of f - s e a s o n .

Hubert Oliphant, who

represented hockey, said he

was concerned about the

bumpy surface which made

the sport very dangerous

because it had to be p l ay e d

on an uneven surface.

Sean Carelse, who spoke

on rugby matters, said the

cloakrooms were disgusting

and the poor state of the

fencing made it difficult to

stage events for fundraising.

“The area where

supporters sit and watch is

dangerous because of the

possibility of snakes in the

tall grass due to the neglect

of the Acorn Valley sports

grounds,” he said.

Simon Quilie, who was

representing soccer at the

meeting, was not happy

about the poor service

received from BCM.

“We always have to run

around for nets and have to

make doubly sure whether

the field is actually being

prepared for our SAB league

games,” Quilie said.

FUTURE STARS: Pupils taking part in a cricket

coaching clinic presented by the Steve Biko

Foundation at the Victoria Grounds in King

William’s Town, get into the swing of things

Cricket clinic

great success

DESMOND COETZEE

CHILDREN from previously disadvantaged

primary schools attended a cricket coaching

clinic presented by the Steve Biko Foundation

(SBF) at the Victoria Grounds in King William’s

Town on Friday.

About 50 pupils and their teachers were picked

up at their respective schools and driven to the

Victoria Grounds where they were taught the

basic rules and regulations of KFC Mini-Cricket.

The schools identified by the SBF were Bonke

Primary (in Bonke Location), Sesethu Primary (in

Kwalini Location), Vuthondaba Primary and

Brownlee Primary (both in Ginsberg).

On conclusion of the coaching clinic, the kids

enjoyed refreshments.

SBF ports programme assistant Unathi

Sangotsha said the project aims to inspire and

empower young boys and girls with the message

that through sport they are able to better

themselves.

“The aim of the coaching clinics is to introduce

cricket to underprivileged primary schools that

have limited or no sporting codes and to use

sport as a medium to teach young pupils l i fe

lessons such as teamwork, leadership,

sportsmanship, respect and self-discipline – all

of which can contribute to their development.

“We believe that the foundation, together with

the help of the schools, can play a vital role in

the future development of our children.”

Brownlee teacher Nomathemba Tingiwe said

she has been involved with KFC Mini-Cricket for

about 12 years and commended the SBF for the

i n i t i at i v e .

“The platform creates an opportunity where our

kids are taught the basic skills of cricket and

then given the chance to develop which can be

very beneficial for those wishing to make cricket

their careers,” Tingiwe said.

“One of my ‘products’ was developed at the

tender age of nine and made it to the EC

provincial trials and that motivates me to remain

involved in cricket.”

Sesethu Primary Grade 4 pupil Hlumisa

Thamba said: “It was my first time playing cricket

and my day’s highlight was the boundary I hit.”

Vuthondaba Grade 4 pupil Sonke Masingile

was the first child to volunteer to take the ball

and said cricket is what he loves.

“I immediately fell in love with the game of

cricket and this is the sport I am really

passionate about and want to play one day.”

MADELEINE CHAPUT

African Curios a cultural journey of choice

MADELEINE CHAPUT

THE newly opened curio shop

African Curios is set to provide

East Londoners with all sorts of

unique and wonderful

ornaments and trinkets from all

over Africa.

The curios are imported from

various African countries,

including Kenya, Mozambique,

Malawi, Ghana, Tanzania,

Zambia and Zimbabwe among

others, offering customers a

wide variety and cultural

diversit y.

African Curios offers wooden

and iron carvings, sculptures,

Maasai, Fang, Tikar and

Zambian masks, wooden salad

bowls, beaded cultural

jewellery, fabric art, as well as

Zulu and Maasai spears.

Starting out in the curio

business 15 years ago, Kenyan

widow Nancy Kuria a l way s

dreamt of owning her own curio

shop and now her dream has

become a reality.

Kuria was a resident curio

seller at the Quigney beachfront

for many years.

In the past year, all of Kuria’s

curios have been taken by the

waves, forcing her to start again

from scratch a couple of times.

African Curios is based on

Esplanade Street, in Quigney

near the East London Aquarium

and is open daily from 6am to

6pm.

For more information and

price lists, contact Kuria on

0 8 1 - 0 3 5 - 3 0 07 .

NEW KID ON THE BLOCK:

African Curios boasts a wide

selection of unique ornaments

and trinkets sourced from all

over Africa

STARTING out nine years ago in

the Western Cape, the

education-enhancing programme

Growsmart was launched in 60

schools in the Eastern Cape for

the first time last week.

The education initiative which

was started by the international

property company Growthpoint

Properties, will now be offered in

30 schools in and around East

London, as well as in 30 schools

in Port Elizabeth.

Working with the Eastern Cape

department of education, the

programme will target primary

school children from grades 4 to

6 in order to assist the

department in its efforts to

better the standard of education

in primary schools.

“This collaborative approach

to boost education with the

Eastern Cape Department of

Education creates a meaningful

and effective way to make a real,

positive contribution to

education in South Africa,”

SMART MOVE: From left, Lutho Kota (Eastern Cape district office),

pupils from Nontuthuzelo Primary School, in East London and

Growsmart Eastern Cape project manager Vuyo Sidelo

Growsmart programme head

Jewel Harris said.

“We are extremely excited to

bring this high-energy,

high-impact programme to the

Eastern Cape,” she added.

The programme’s inaugural

project in the province will focus

on boosting the literacy

performance of primary school

children through a specifically

designed spelling bee

competition.

Based on the school

curriculum, Growsmart will

provide each school with all the

resources and materials needed

to excel in this competition.

The programme’s story writing

project has already produced

more than 80 published authors

under the age of 13 whose books

are now being used in the

classroom.

OMFEP boost for Duncan Village

SIVENATHI GOSA

NELSON Mandela Universit y’s

Govan Mbeki Mathematics

Development Centre (GMMDC)

has initiated a maths and

science programme in Bhisho.

Started three years ago, the

Old Mutual Flagship Education

Programme (OMFEP) has had 18

schools participating in the

programme, with eight more

schools in Duncan Village set to

benefit this year.

GMMDC director Professor

Werner Olivier said the OMEFP

maths and science development

project saw a significant

improvement in the marks of

grade 11 and 12 pupils.

“The eight schools will follow

the Bhisho model, where the

project takes the form of an

Incubator School Programme

(ISP) run at a central venue on

Saturdays for selected pupils

from all participating schools, as

well as Tablet-assisted

ALL ADDING UP: Bhisho school pupils participate in the Old Mutual

maths sessions,” said Olivier.

Over the next two years,

GMMDC aims to boost the

impact of the programme even

more by adding science, technology,

engineering, arts and

mathematics (STEAM) activities.

Old Mutual senior project

manager Kanyisa Diamond said

they had seen excellent m at h s

and science results from the ISP

and TAPS programmes in Bhisho

and King William’s Town.

“Our intention is to replicate

this success in the Duncan

Village schools, where we are

also supporting a number of

schools with leadership

development,” said Diamond.

Just ginger for nausea, but

much more than a pop spice

One of the oldest remedies for nausea is the

exotic and spicy root of ginger.

Many pregnancies are marred by morning

sickness. Over-the-counter medicines are helpful

but not always.

Try using ginger tea, sweets or biscuits (not

flavoured but with real ginger). No more than just

a few cups of refreshing sugar free ginger tea

daily is safe and can do the trick. Fortunately, if

the pungent flavour is not part of your ‘cup of

tea’, there are ginger capsules available. Even

motion sickness can be remedied by this spice!

This reputable root spice enhances appetite

and eases indigestion. Scientific research has

shown how effective it is at destroying intestinal

parasites (this includes some types of worms).

Ginger deserves just a small place in your diet

if you experience weak digestion. Do you have

vertigo with nausea and dizziness – try that zesty

spice!

Adding a little fresh ginger to smoothies will

boost your antioxidant intake. Let this spice get

you into swing, as it may

support weight loss as it is

said to increase body

t e m p e r at u r e .

For anyone with an

inflammatory condition – a

fresh home made juice of

pineapple (with its inherent

anti-inflammatory bromelain)

and ginger (with its own

anti-inflammatory compound

named gingerol) is a superb

r e m e d y.

That is not all! Ginger has been shown by

research to inhibit the production of the

inflammatory compounds in your body known as

prostaglandins and leukotrienes.

Massage therapists may make use of ginger oil

to relax inflamed muscles. Feisty ginger

stimulates circulation to all parts of the body!

This supports brain power

and all over cellular function

in your body.

Many historical accounts

indicate the benefit of this

spice for conditions of

arthritis, joint pains or

asthma. Some cough and

cold remedies to this day

contain ginger extract.

Studies have revealed how

this spice assists in diabetes

by a range of actions, which all support a

healthier blood sugar balance too! Feeling ill?

You may not have to be, just “spice up” and enjoy

your day.

CHECK MATE, BROTHER: From left, Stirling Primary School brothers

Sebastian and Samuel Chang show off their wonderful achievements at

the recent South African Junior Chess Championships. Picture: SUPPLIED

Chess brothers

have the moves

MADELEINE CHAPUT

STIRLING Primary School chess

champions, Samuel and Sebastian

Chang, recently took part in the

South African Junior Chess

Championships in Johannesburg

where they both excelled.

Competing against 14 players

from all over the country, 11-year-old

Sebastian achieved first place in the

B section and also won the U12

Board prize, while younger brother

Samuel achieved second place in

the under 8 category.

At only seven, Samuel has been

chosen to play in the South African

Closed Championships in April.

If he wins, the young chess player

will go on to compete in a

tournament in Greece.

“I am extremely proud of them.

They are both very passionate about

chess and it is a great privilege to

teach this calibre of child,” Stirling

Primary Chess teacher, Lynn Hill,

said.

The brothers both started playing

chess from a young age, honing

their talents over the years.

Through various tournaments

SMART MOVE: Some of the chess players who will be at the Junior SA

Closed Championships are, back from left; Thimna August, Pei-Shan

Wang, Alman Deang, Keagen Meise, Esna Pretorius, Mandibonge Qangule,

Siyolise August, Samuel Chang, Aldre Deang and Tshegofatso Bixa

Young chess players

get ready for champs

SIVENATHI GOSA

THE Buffalo City Chess trials took

place at the Hamilton Club on

Saturday and a team that will

represent the region at the South

African Junior Closed Chess

Championships will be selected soon.

President of Border Chess, Ashley

Vermaak, said the SA Junior Closed

Chess Championship will take place

during the first week of April at

Kaponang in Benoni.

“In April, the top five per age

group from that tournament will go

to the World Youth Chess

Championships in Greece, and sixth

place to 10th place will go to the

African Youth Chess

Championships,” Vermaak said.

Vermaak indicated that the

during 2017, the brothers were

selected as two of the top players in

the province, earning them a spot at

the SA Junior Championships.

“I like playing chess because I

watched my brother playing and

then I started playing as well when I

was in Grade 1,” Grade 2 pupil,

Samuel, said.

“When I make a mistake it can

change the whole game, but I never

give up! I feel very excited and very

proud of myself,” he said.

Agreeing with his younger brother,

Sebastian said that the most

difficult thing about playing chess is

having the discipline to never lose

concent ration.

“You have to calculate all the

moves you make and strategise. I

like chess because it makes you use

your brain and use maths. I love to

have a challenge,” Grade 6 pupil,

Sebastian said.

Stirling Primary school is very

proud of these two young talents,

with their chess teacher supporting

them and their achievements.

“ I am sure that both Sebastian

and Samuel will continue to go from

strength to strength,” Hill said.

travelling costs would be paid by the

players' parents.

“We do not get any financial

assistance from government

stakeholders. Last year we had

about 70 players in the SA

championships and they came back

with 38 medals altogether, which

was impressive,” Vermaak said.

Chess coach Kulasande Mafanya

said seven years ago he qualified to

represent the South Africa Students

Team at the Fide University Chess

Olympiad in China, but he could not

go because he had no sponsor.

“I will make sure that we raise

funds so that if any of these 14

players qualify for the World Youth

Championship they can go,”

Mafanya said.

The trials will continue on March 3

at the Hamilton Club

IN LINE: The 16th Nedbank Merrifield Mile will

take place on March 4 at Wriggleswade Dam

Picture: MATTHEW BOON

Merrifield Mile

draws near

TARALYN MCLEAN

MERRIFIELD Mile defending champion Kyle

Holmes will be back this year to attempt a third

consecutive win of the 1.6km flagship event at

Wriggleswade Dam on March 4.

Holmes, who won the Merrifield Mile in 2016,

made it two-in-a-row last year in a winning time of

21 minutes 44 seconds – two seconds ahead of

runner-up Daniel Jones. The 1.6km event is one of

four races that make up the 16th Merrifield Mile,

powered by feature sponsor Nedbank.

In addition to the Mile, swimmers over the age

of nine can choose to swim the 500m Dash or the

TerraForce 250m for swimmers over the age of

eight. The Spur Fun Splash is for children under

the age of nine.

“I will be swimming the Mile again,” said

Holmes, who belongs to Aquasharks in Cape Town.

“I will definitely try my best for another win.”

Jones will not be returning this year because he

is in Cape Town, and as he was the winner of the

500m Dash last year, that top spot is open for

second placed Dash swimmer Alfonso Janse van

Rensburg.

Janse van Rensburg, a Stirling High School

pupil, will be rushing to Wriggleswade Dam

following the SA Open Water Swim National

Championships in Jeffrey’s Bay on Saturday, to

compete in the Mile and the Dash.

The clash with the Open Water Champs also

means Dash runner-up in the women’s category,

Tayla Botha, will be missing in action on March 4,

and it is unknown at this stage if last year’s Mile

winner Chloe Velde will be back to defend her title.

This could prove a chance for Merrifield student

Amy Swart to take a crack at the women’s Mile

title, as she took second place last year in the

Dash. This year she will be competing in the 1.6km

event.

“My aim this year is to try and improve my time

and to have fun at the same time,” Swart said.

The 16th Merrifield Mile is a great day out for the

family, and with four events on the day, swimmers

of all levels are catered for.

Entries are available at Merrifield Prep School

and College, Sportsmans Warehouse, Cycle HQ

and online at w w w. m e r r i f i e l d m i l e . c o . z a .

Information related to the event, including

overnight camping at the dam, is available on the

website.
