Advertising feature EL Shipyard oversees repairs on SA Agulhas MADELEINE CHAPUT THE South African Maritime Safety Authority's (Samsa) dedicated training vessel, the SA Agulhas, is back in the port of East London 's Princess Elizabeth dry-dock. The 40-year old vessel, which recently returned from a three-month trip to Antarctica, is back in East London for her lay-up maintenance plan after her previous visit in 2013, and was welcomed by a refurbished dry-dock with improved fa c i l i t i e s . The four to six-week contract was awarded to local ship repair company, East London Shipyard. Work includes repairs and maintenance on the bow and stern thrusters, tail shaft, steering gear, compressors, cranes, deck machinery and hull. “More than 80 direct jobs have been created during the project including employment for marine engineers, electricians, riggers, welders, fitters, painters and supervisory st a f f, ” Transnet National Ports Authorit y’s (TPNA) Ship Repair Manager for the Port of East London, Leigh Carls said. The dry-dock, which is currently undergoing the advanced stage of its refurbishment project, now boasts new switchgear and crane rails. “Work commenced in 2015 with a phased approach being followed to enhance all critical components and allow for the dock to be functional throughout the upgrading process. R21-million has been invested to date and 70% of the work has been completed thus fa r, ” Carls said. As part of T N PA ’s contribution nationally towards government’s Operation Phakisa initiative, the dry-dock refurbishment is in support of ship repair and marine manufacturing. Operation Phakisa aims to unlock the economic potential of the country’s oceans by accelerating investments into ship repair facilities and marine engineering capability. The SA Agulhas is the fifth commercial vessel to make use of the dry-dock over the past six months. She was one of the star attractions at last year’s East London Port Festival, as well as the People’s Port Festival in Port Elizabeth earlier this year. Twenty cadets ,enrolled in the national cadet programme managed by the South African International Maritime Institute (SAIMI), obtained experience on the vesssel's recent Antarctic voyage, counting towards their sea time to obtain their STCW certificates of competency. East London Port Manager, Sharon Sijako, said attracting more ship repair business to the port was an essential aspect of the new aggressive strategy to expand the port for the benefit of the region.

Catering to more than 25 children, the project is centred around Mdantsane and Parkside, where Rexana teaches dance classes d a i l y. . “I wanted to make a difference in my community and help the youth. I teach them dance to keep them off the streets and keep them from going into a life of drugs and crime,” Rexana said. The group recently competed in the PnA Ultimate Performer, and wowed audience members and judges with their impressive hip hop routines and break dancing stunts. While Rexana is the main instructor, he welcomes and invites other dance teachers to help him teach the children various styles and skills. “My main challenge is equipment. I do not have everything I need for dance classes and sometimes we do not even have a hall to practise in.” “CyfaDance is looking for sponsors or anyone who is willing to assist us.” Rexana was also recently invited to perform at the ARTS International Showcase in the US in J u l y. The showcase offers talented performers from all over the world an opportunity to perform in front of an international panel of agents, casting directors, record labels, managers and producers in the hope of being recognised and signed. Rexana is tasked with having to get himself to America and needs financial support to cover his visa, travel, accommodation and meal costs for the trip. “It would mean the world to me to be able to attend this showcase. I want to show my dancers that you can reach your dreams.. “It would be a honour to represent South Africa and I would love to learn as much as possible in America so I can help my dancers improve their skills.” For more information on CyfaDance please visit the Facebook page, CyfaDance Community Development. If anyone would like to assist, contact Rexana on 084-336-3348.

FAMILY TIME: Visitors to the East London Zoo enjoyed an open day on Saturday A great day at the EL Zoo SIVENATHI GOSA EAST London residents had the opportunity to explore the city’s zoo during its annual open day on S at u r d ay. Friends of East London Zoo (Felzoo) manager Angeline Wheeler said the event aimed to bring families together with the opportunity to enjoy the facilities at the zoo without charge. “Buffalo City Municipality [BCM] gave permission to host the event for the public. We want the public to be aware about the condition of the animals,” she said. The GO! reported (“Petition to close down city's zoo”, January 25) that a petition had been circulated to close down the zoo due to the neglected state of the facility. A concerned local took to social media and posted pictures of the animals that looked frail and sickly. Wheeler said since the matter had been brought to the attention of the public, things had changed. “Our animals are old, but they are in a healthy condition. We do have farmers who give carcasses for the meat-eating animals. Our top priority is their health, so we make sure we give fresh food and a veterinarian Picture: SIVENATHI GOSA also visits the zoo,” Wheeler said. Security had also improved with police officers patrolling the premises. Belgravia resident Luyanda Mbebe took his three children to enjoy the zo o . “I decided to take the children out on this wonderful day as I saw it fitting for them to spend their day here before the schools reopen on Tu e s d ay, ” Mbebe said. Rachel Samson,12, spent her day at the zoo with her family. “I love being here at the zoo because I love playing on the swings and I also like seeing the animals.”
