of shopping

Vincent Park in

celebration mode

TAMMY FRAY

Local flagship mall Vincent Park

shopping centre turned 50 on

October 1.

Vincent Park opened in October

1972 and has a rich legacy that is

intertwined with the development of

the city.

It was formerly a hotel before it was

purchased in the 70s by Old Mutual

and converted into a shopping mall

with Pick n Pay as its anchor tenant.

Since its establishment, the centre

has grown to 37,000m² of trading

space with over 80 tenants, including

all of the major banks, South African

retail brands and international fashion

retailer H&M. Vincent Park is an

industry leader as it is recognised

nationally through the South African

Council of Shopping Centres annual

Footprint Marketing Awards.

Over the years the mall has become

synonymous with family values and

Mariaan Hartwig, the marketing

m a n a g e r, said throughout the year they

had tried to build on this.

The events hosted at the mall such

as the hey!Clay! pop-up workshops

were designed to give local families an

opportunity to try new experiences

together and build memories tied to the

mall.

Joseph Parsley, portfolio manager

for Vincent Park, said the East London

community has been an integral part of

Vincent Park’s success and the mall

FAMILY FAVOURITE: To celebrate

50 years, patrons at Vincent Park

shopping centre were included in

raffles, pop-up photo-booths and a

number of other activities at the

mall.

supported the local economy by

providing businesses with a platform

from which to trade as well as

employment for hundreds of locals.

In addition to Pick n Pay, both

Wimpy and Chez François were initial

anchor businesses in the mall. Chez

François also celebrated 50 years on

October 1 and principle stylist Candice

Wittstock said the salon had benefited

greatly from its place in the mall.

“Being in the mall has been perfect

for the salon because we get walk-ins

all the time, which is good for business.

Our spot exposes us to a wide range of

clients. Our patrons are wonderful and

we wish the mall and ourselves 50

more years of success.”

The salon hopes the next 50 years

will allow it to grow to employ more

stylists and invest in the retail sector.

Beloved EL theatre turns 60

FAITH MTWANA

The East London Guild Theatre is

celebrating 60 years since it first

opened its doors on October 6 1962.

The iconic theatre has staged m a ny

outstanding productions, from drama,

dance and musical showcases to

concerts, comedy, magic shows and

more.

The first ever production showcased

at the theatre was a British comedy

called School for Scandal, which was

directed by Mary Howe who imported

costumes from London for the show.

Situated in the heart of East London,

the Guild Theatre has stood strong

despite financial challenges and the

Covid-19 pandemic.

Despite this, the theatre has still

managed to stage big productions that

run for weeks at a time, and has backup

so shows can continue during

loadshedding.

One of the most notable events

staged at the Guild Theatre is the

Umtiza Arts Festival. This year’s vibrant

f e s t iva l , showcasing artists from all over

Buffalo City, included singing, dancing

and acting.

Other notable staged shows were

the various dance performances by the

Sonwa Sakuba Institute for the

Performing Arts, the Tracy Delport

Dance Company Studio and the

Christian Dance Academy.

Andre the Hilarious Hypnotist, who

has performed at the theatre for more

than 30 years, has only the fondest

memories.

“I knew the first day I arrived at the

Guild Theatre that everything about the

theatre just worked.

“Thirty-three years later I am still

enjoying everything the theatre

p r ov i d e s .

“A very happy 60th birthday to the

theatre and the staff that make the

magic happen.

“I look forward to the next 30 years

at the Guild Theatre,” he said.

Tracy Delport, who has showcased

Carel du Toit pupils take to street for Deaf Awareness week

many of her dance productions at the

theatre, said she appreciated the

professional service she had received

from the theatre’s staff over the years.

“I appreciate the staff so much.

Zane, Jonathan and Andre always go

above and beyond for us.

“Thank you to them and happy

s i x t i e t h ,” said Delport.

The theatre’s chairperson,

Malwande Ntisana, said the Guild

played a pivotal role in giving artists

from all over the Eastern Cape a

platform to showcase their work.

“This theatre isn’t just for East

London, we have artists from as far as

Aliwal North and Kokstad.

“We ’ve also had artists like Msaki,

Sonwa and Tats Nkonzo perform as

young upcoming artists and returning

later on as well as established artists in

the industry.

“I’m also excited to see young

children who are starting out as dancers

from a young age and watch them as

they grow,” said Ntisana.

TAMMY FRAY

On September 29, students,

parents and teachers from the

Carel du Toit Centre took to the

street in a short demonstration

in honour of Deaf Awareness

We e k .

The centre is a non-profit

organisation for preschool

children diagnosed with hearing

impairments. It assists children

who have cochlear implants

and other assistive devices to

strengthen the development of

their language, listening and

comprehension skills.

Principal at Carel du Toit

and 2022 winner of the

Gonubie Lions Melvin Jones

fellow award, Paula Cooper,

said ongoing efforts to raise

awareness about hearing loss

was important as i n t e r ve n t i o n s

to assist those born with hearing

loss must happen within the first

three years of a child’s life.

“Children with hearing loss

are very visual and touch is

heightened, so because their

senses overcompensate for the

impaired one, it takes longer for

hearing loss to be detected,” she

said. “It is something you can

miss as a parent.

“Most parents tend to notice

only when they realise that by

the age of one the child is not

speaking. However, by then it is

too late because the child will

have to catch up on a whole

year of language learning.”

Early intervention is critical

and Cooper encourages parents

to bring their children to the

centre immediately after

cochlear implant surgery.

The overall goal is to

develop children to the level at

which they can attend in

mainstream schools without any

barriers to access.

This year, the centre

renovated its garage area into a

charity shop to raise funds for

operational costs. However

Cooper said they were looking

for sponsors for i n d iv i d u a l

students as costs included

medical assistance from

audiologists as well as providing

meals and activities for children.

Mom Janine Martin,said she

has seen a huge difference in

her child’s development since

he arrived at the school. She

said parents supported the

centre’s efforts as it affirmed to

the children their disability was

not anything to be ashamed of.

Talented tweens

shine in school play

CROSSWORD number 1300

FAITH MTWANA

Genre: Play, Disney, Adventure

Cambridge Primary

School pupils h ave

proven that their talents

are worth keeping an eye on

with their school play, Disney’s

The Little Mermaid.

The pupils recently put on

their own rendition of the

Disney fairytale and blew the

audience away with their

stunning showcase of brilliant

acting and beautiful vocals.

Although the storyline had to

remain unchanged due to

copyrights, the young actors

were able to add their own

personality to the characters

they played.

The story of The Little

Mermaid is a well-known tale

that has had multiple remakes,

including an upcoming liveaction

remake set to be released

in 2023.

One of the talking points on

social media about the 2023

remake is the fact that a black

girl, Halle Bailey, has been cast

in the role of Ariel. The diversity

that Cambridge embraces as a

school was on full display.

Performances worth noting

included Eyiva Mhatu as Ariel,

Buhlebenkosi Gaula as

Sebastian, Ayazingca

Ramnowana as Ursula, Skylar

Cloete as Prince Chris and Lulo

Mdibi as Flounder.

These characters are perhaps

the best known from the movie,

and these children gave them

new life with their refreshing

renditions of the classic songs

Part of Your World, Under the

Sea and Poor Unfortunate Souls.

directed by Tanya Human, had

Lou Lou’s Eatery born from love of cooking

FAITH MTWANA

QWhen and how was your

business idea born?

AThe business idea was born

while I was in grade 8 in

Port Elizabeth. That was when I

was taught how to cook by my

grandmother. I fell in love with

cooking and I knew then that I

would own a restaurant one day.

What do you offer?

Lou Lou’s Eatery serves

balanced meals, nutritional with

protein, oils and carbs. We

serve quality food that is yummy

and delicious at an affordable

rate. We deliver food around the

East London CBD area.

How did you come up with

your menu?

The menu is basically what I

have learned from home. It is

what we had during the week as

our supper and dinner so I

created a menu from that.

How many people do you work

GO!PEOPLE

Luyanda Mtyeku

with?

I have one assistant cook and

two temporary cooks.

What are some of the major

challenges you have faced?

I have previously had workers

who were not committed and

dedicated to do the work, and

did not follow the vision. It

made it difficult for the business

to run smoothly. Moving from a

busy geographic area to a quiet

area in Quigney has been a

challenging for the business as

we had to adopt to the area.

What advice would you give to

someone looking to start their

own food business?

I would say approach the NYDA

offices, as they have a lot to offer

to entrepreneurs. Be patient

with them as there are many of

us. I started attending their Small

Business Entrepreneurship

Studies. And from there you can

continued seeking assistance

towards your vision.

How have you adapted your

business for challenges such as

loadshedding?

I have adapted very well in my

business as I have the passion,

vision, mission and goals so I

am flexible in this business as it

changes every day. I need to be

flexible and alive. Loadshedding

does not really affect

me as I cook using gas and we

operating during the day.

How do you fund your

business/do you have any

sponsors or donors?

There are sponsors and donors

and I keep applying every day

and approaching different

people to assist the business.

Where can people find you?

Your social media handles?

I am currently operating at

Bursary launch for John Bisseker pupils

TAMMY FRAY

Former minister of public

administration Geraldine

Fraser-Moleketi visited

John Bisseker Secondary School

on September 30 to launch a

bursary for a deserving student,

in honour of her late father,

Arthur Fraser.

Fraser was a maths and

science teacher in the Cape

Peninsula but was born and

raised in the Eastern Cape and

attended John Bisseker Sec as a

teen. The Frasers have left an

imprint in SA through their

contribution in various spheres

of society through politics,

public service, business and

sport, among others, with a

clear commitment to social

justice and more.

Fraser-Moleketi said this

bursary was a small gesture

from the Fraser family to

encourage pupils at a public

school in a challenging

community setting to strive for

excellence through education.

This year Fraser would have

turned 90 and in honour of his

l e g a cy, his family has decided to

donate a R10,000 bursary

towards the current first place

matric student in maths and

science at the school.

John Bisseker is grateful for

this contribution, given its

ongoing efforts to create a

robust alumnus network that

can contribute towards

developing the school.

Fraser-Moleketi has also

pledged to donate a second

bursary towards next year’s top

maths and science pupil and the

school believes this will

encourage better performance

in these subjects among the

matric class of 2023.

John Bisseker educator

Brenda Appollis said the

recipient of the bursary had to

be be a hard-working and

diligent pupil who wanted to

study further. The money will

help towards registration fees,

transport and books.

Fraser-Moleketi said her

father had been committed to

working in schools with at-risk

youth from low-income

backgrounds and believed in

making education accessible to

a l l ch i l d r e n .

“He was a passionate

teacher who was innovative in

developing the interest of pupils

in the sciences.The intention of

this incentive is to encourage

matriculants to excel in the

s c i e n c e s ,” she said.

“Our wish is that they will

plough back into John Bisseker

when they are successful.”

FILLING UP: Sybrand Botha from Imonti Construction is seen here presiding over the filling of

Potholes a huge

problem for BCM

FAITH MTWANA

Potholes are an unfortunate

reality that many Buffalo

City Municipality

residents are forced to deal with.

The rainy weather East

London has been experiencing

over the last few months has

exposed the terrible conditions

of the roads and the potholes

that have become a headache

for road users.

Residents living in

Tewksbury Road have been

forced to use alternative routes

as driving on these roads is a risk

to their safety and could

damage their cars.

Other problematic roads

around BCM include Wembley

Drive in Cambridge, St Peters

Road in Southernwood,

Jennings Road in Cambridge

West, Parkridge Road in

Pefferville and Park Avenue

Road in Parkside, among others.

A worker at one of the stores

in The Hub Complex in Beacon

Bay says customers have

complained multiple times

about the potholes at the

entrances to the complex.

“Our customers sometimes

complain about how bad the

road is when they come in to

the complex. We have

addressed the issue with

landlords but nothing has been

d o n e ,” he said.

A Beacon Bay patron, who

wants to remain anonymous

because she is also a municipal

worker, says the potholes are

financial liability for residents.

“The potholes are affecting

me because everything has

gone up. If you lose a tyre and

you have to pay to have it fixed,

that is a lot of money that you

did not budget for. It is

especially worse on rainy days

because then you don’t even see

the potholes,” she said.

A sub-contractor contracted

by Imonti Construction says the

biggest issues the roads are

faced with are wear and tear

caused by lack of maintenance.

Councillor Frederick Pohl of

ward 28 explained there were

many issues preventing the

immediate solving of the issue.

“The Buffalo Metro

Municipality must realise a

proper programme for the resealing

of our streets has to be

started. It is, however, in many

instances too late to start such a

programme. Some of our streets

need rebuilding since the

foundations are severely

affected by years of neglected

maintenance.

“It is indeed the task of the

municipality to repair potholes.

“Unfortunately, it is very

difficult to start any programme

to improve our streets without

funding. We must, however,

realise that all these processes

take time, time that was stolen

by years of neglect by BCMM to

do proper maintenance of the

i n f ra s t r u c t u r e ,” he said.

Bonza Bay Road was in the

process of being repaired on

Monday afternoon.

A DV E RTO R I A L

Arthritis causing joint pain and inflammation

Ageing is often accompanied

with an all-too-common

presentation of aches and

pains that come with the

degeneration of our joints.

The cartilage in our joints,

the cushioning or shock

absorbers, cannot regenerate

like it used to when we were

young and full of bounce. This

loss of the cushioning or

erosion in our joints can result

in degenerative patterns such

as arthritis or osteoarthritis.

This leads to pain, stiffness

and chronic joint inflammation,

manifested as lack of mobility

and intense pain especially felt

in our knees, hips and other

joints that take the highest

impact because of activity.

Traditionally the only

solutions have been to use

NSAIDs and other over-thecounter

anti-inflammatory

medicines to reduce pain, but

these may effect the gut lining,

liver and kidneys, even if used

in moderation. Moreover,

these medicines only manage

the symptoms and do not treat

the root cause, which is the

erosion of cartilage.

But new, safer alternatives,

have recently been found.

NEM, or Natural Egg Shell

Membrane, a special type of

hydrolysed collagen, has been

clinically proven to show

incredible breakthrough

effects by stimulating the

regeneration of cartilage and

reducing the severe pain and

lack of mobility associated with

How deep is the rot?

Students of history would certainly

have developed an acute awareness

of the devastating role played by

corruption in the affairs of man

since time immemorial.

Some would argue that we are

dealing with and are all a part of

“Fallen Man”, and it is just the

degree of its prevalence that

distinguishes

countries and

societies from each

o t h e r.

Regarding SA,

the sweep of our

history records the

story of

indigenous, largely

nomadic peoples

occupying mainly

the southern parts

REFLECTIONS

ROY HEWETT

of the country,

colonisation by

Europeans,

importing of slave

and indentured

labour, migrations of peoples from

central and sub-Saharan Africa, and

a melting pot of skirmishes, wars

and conflicts over land ownership

and rights.

While the merits of the claims of

different interest groups are beyond

the scope of this article, the reality is

that the political circumstances

have always been a fertile breeding

ground for alarming levels of

devastating corruption in our

country ... and there seem to have

been extremely enthusiastic

participants.

Lord Acton’s 19th century

contention that: “Power corrupts,

and absolute power corrupts

absolutely “, has been seen to apply

irrespective of which political party

or group has been in power

throughout our history. Greed,

disregard for human rights, selfenrichment

and clandestine,

underhand dealings have been the

norm. But many believe — and

ongoing commissions,

whistleblower revelations and

POSITION: Junior Reporter

PUBLICATIONS: GO&Express, & GO&ExpressLIVE

LOCATION: East London

investigative journalism discoveries

support the view — that corruption

has gone particularly rogue and

become disturbingly rampant

during the 21st century.

The rot seems to have permeated

all levels to the extent that much of

our state is alleged to have been

captured, state-owned enterprises

have been severely

compromised and

service delivery

continues to

deteriorate at an

alarming rate.

The very

infrastructure of our

country is at serious

risk; load- shedding,

contaminated water

supplies, a bankrupt

national airline,

roads in dangerous

disrepair, bankrupt

municipalities and

many poor people

going insolvent ... the disturbing list

goes on. And the evidence of

alleged top-level government

officials’ involvement is

frighteningin the extreme.

Equally disquieting allegations

of obfuscation, obstruction, coverups

and outright dishonesty by law

enforcement agencies and arms of

the judiciary, ring alarm bells as

never before in our country. An

observation by this writer seems to

have relevance: “When the law

takes a back seat and corruption

drives the car, we are heading for

unmitigated disaster.”—RM

Hewett

As history and current processes

play themselves out in SA, leaders

and concerned citizens would be

well-advised to examine some of

the literature regarding corruption:

“Corruption is a cancer, a cancer

that eats away at a citizen’s faith in

democracy, diminishes the instinct

for innovation and creativity.”— Jo e

Biden, former vice-president (and

current president) of the US.

East Coast Sports and Buffalo

City Tennis will be hosting the

first-ever Buffalo City Junior

Tennis Tournament on October 15.

The tournament aims to revive

grassroots tennis, especially for

children attending schools in lowincome

areas.

The tournament, which is

sponsored by Ziyifour and Kumkani

FM hopes to initiate more

development in club tennis,

enhance talent identification and

increase capacity building of

coaches, officials and

a d m i n i s t ra t o r s .

The tournament will be held at

Selborne Park Tennis Club and will

run for an entire day, from 8am to

5pm.

All are invited, whether at

beginner or advanced level.

The programme includes a

workshop on the basics of the

game, coaching clinics on form and

sessions on the importance of sport

for mental and physical health,

among other developmental areas.

Students from u/10 to u/18 from

schools across the metro are invited

to attend.

East Coast Sports is a local NPO

that hopes to develop sport among

the youth, especially in low-income

areas.

East Coast Sports director Lifa

Sompuku said: “Tennis as a sport is

not known in our black community.

The intention is to take tennis to the

people, with the help of the

municipality, departments of sport

and education and local businesses.

“We want to see tennis played in

Mdantsane, Duncan Village and

rural areas around East London,”

Sompuku said.

Old Selbornian

15km returns

TAMMY FRAY

After a two-year absence due to

Covid-19, the Mercedes-Benz

Old Selbornian 15km race

returned on October 2.

Mercedes-Benz has been sponsoring

the race for more than 30 years and its

presence was sorely missed as runners

across the metro make use of the race to

train for upcoming fixtures such as the

Amathole Marathon, which is scheduled

to take place this year on October 9.

The route was fairly uncomplicated,

with a double lap that started at Old

Selbornian through to Beach Road and

down towards Gleneagles.

Race winner Anele Dlamini came in

at 46:06 minutes, followed closely by

Yanga Malusi at 46:56 and Malixole

Kalideni came in third at 49:00. Dlamini

maintained the first position throughout

the race and enjoyed a comfortable lead

until the end when Malusi kicked into

overdrive to make a last attempt to catch

up at Gleneagles Street.

The race includes a 15km and a 5km

section, with entrants for the 15km at

over 300 participants this year.

Organiser from Old Selbornian Jan

Labuschagne saidt the turnout for the

year was exceptional as, after two years,

athletes were excited by the opportunity

to compete. “We are very happy to have

Mercedes and local business support us

because this race is a big part of East

London.

“It means a lot to the local

community to have runs to look forward

to on the weekends, especially after

Comrades, and so businesses that get

i nvo l ve d , like Mercedes-Benz, know

that their support means a lot because it

is good to have local fixtures supported

by the local community instead of

always expecting local athletes to spend

large sums of money to compete in

different cities,” Labuschagne said.

Old Selbornian hosts club runs for

everyone on Wednesday evenings and

the next big fixture will be the PWC

Night Race in January 2023.
