    GANG VIOLENCE

    Intervention needed

    NICOLE MCCAIN

    @nickymccain

    A

    District Six victim support centre has

    called for a commission of inquiry into

    efforts to end gangviolence in the prov-

    ince.

    Gang prevention and intervention is a

    shared responsibility which, according to a

    research report releasedby theTraumaCen-

    tre, is not visible enough in the province.

    Consequently, the socioeconomic rights of

    survivors of gang violence are compromised

    by ongoing gang warfare and sluggish ef-

    forts to rid communities of such organised

    crime, Trauma Centre executive director

    Valdi van Reenen-Le Roux says.

    The report focuses primarily on residents

    of Manenberg and recommends an investi-

    gation into gang prevention and interven-

    tion efforts.

    Van Reenen-Le Roux believes the latest

    peace inManenberg is disturbing because it

    hints at the de facto authority that gang lead-

    ers enjoy. She suggests that it is time to re-

    fer to gang violence as a form of torture and

    ill treatment.

    The report suggests that researchmust be

    done on gang violence as an act of torture,

    because of the governments failure to eradi-

    cate gang violence. Further research should

    also be done on trauma-focused psychoso-

    cial interventions for peoplewho experience

    continuous trauma.

    Ewald Botha, spokesperson for provincial

    minister of community safety Dan Plato,

    says the call for a commissionof inquiry into

    gang violence falls under the premier.

    Our approach to deal with the impact of

    the ongoing scourge of drugs and gangs

    needs to also look at preventing our kids

    from becoming involved in these negative

    social behaviour. We will not be successful

    in breaking down the culture of gangs and

    drugs if we try to do this as individuals, or

    in isolation from one another, he says.

    The provincial governments whole-of-

    society approach to increase safety recog-

    nises that meaningful partnerships are es-

    sential if we are to be successful, Botha says.

    We continue to partner with our commu-

    nities and organisations operating in our

    communities. We have, since the beginning

    of this year, launched on a large-scale,

    youth-focused outreach engagement in our

    communities to inform our youth, our par-

    ents and thoseworkingwith the youth about

    our services available to them. These in-

    clude our partnership with the religious fra-

    ternity, the opportunities available at our

    Chrysalis and Wolwekloof academies, as

    well as the existing opportunities for bursa-

    ries towards studying, he says.

    The provincial government also recently an-

    nounced various holiday programmes on of-

    fer by the departments of community safety,

    cultural affairs and sport, education and so-

    cial development to provide opportunities

    that young people can participate in during

    the school holiday when they are more at

    risk, Botha says.

    Fellow researcher Tatenda Mawoyo ar-

    gues that the research findings and recom-

    mendations confirmwhat policies and stra-

    tegic frameworks of both national and pro-

    vincial government agencies have preached

    but not practised adequately.

    The report finds ongoing violence is the

    biggest threat to victim rehabilitation. It al-

    so finds a strong link between ongoing vio-

    lence and continuous trauma,which has im-

    plications for the development of mental

    health programmes. Inadequate physical,

    human and financial resources increase the

    risk of secondary victimisation because it

    impacts on the appropriateness, accessibili-

    ty and sustainability of trauma-focused psy-

    chosocial interventions in communities af-

    fected by ongoing gang violence,

    The key recommendations propose an ap-

    proach tomaking victim rehabilitation a re-

    ality, Van Reenen-Le Roux says.

    There is also a need to develop trauma-fo-

    cused mental health literacy for teachers,

    parents, child carers and community-based

    workers to improve the skills of those who

    provide psychosocial support to survivors of

    gang violence.

    FISHING

    Permits up for grabs

    NICOLE MCCAIN

    @nickymccain

    A

    s public participation opens on the up-

    coming fishing rights allocation proc-

    ess, transformation of the industry is tak-

    ing centre stage.

    The department of agriculture, forestry

    and fisheries is holding consultation ses-

    sions on 10 sector policies, which are set

    to expire this year, as well as a policy on

    fish processing.

    The drafts were published last month

    and are up for public comment.

    For the inshore sectors which include

    lobster, net and abalone fishing rights

    will be split between small-scale fishers

    and large-scale companies.

    This portion has yet to be decided,

    project manager Sue Middleton says, but

    is expected to be announced in October or

    November.

    Always a controversial topic, says Mid-

    dleton, is the balance between awarding

    rights to historical holders and encourag-

    ing transformation.

    Its about balancing new entrants and

    current rights holders. The fishing sector

    is aging and needs to let the youth and new

    people in, she says.

    Adequate inclusion

    Oneof the criteria used to promote trans-

    formation is allocation according to race.

    This will see the majority of rights allocat-

    ed to black-owned businesses, with less

    than a tenth going to businesses with col-

    oured owners.

    HoutBay residentDavina Jonathan says

    transformation is happening through BEE

    in all sectors, but coloured communities

    are not being adequately included.

    Why are only 9%of the rights being giv-

    en to coloured fisherman? They should be

    included under the Constitution, she

    says.

    The process is also excluding small busi-

    nesses, Jonathan believes, as they cant

    compete with commercial fisheries.

    Small businesses are often in the form

    of a co-op working with only two boats.

    They cant pull in the same tonnage as a

    commercial enterprise. They also dont

    have the same vessel accessibility and

    have only smaller five-metre boats. The

    current system is excluding the small man

    and they arent given the opportunity to

    grow and move up, she says.

    At a publicmeeting in Sea Point lastweek,

    Armin Weimar of the Wild Benguela Har-

    vest company, who had been in the industry

    for 43 years, commented that four categories

    should be created for applicants, which

    would encourage this transformation.

    Different scores

    He believes categories should be created

    for those who previously owned rights in a

    sector, applicants with rights in other sec-

    tors, company applicants and then new en-

    trants.

    New entrants would be, for instance, five

    crewmen from a lobster boat that have fish-

    ed as a crew for their whole life and have

    now formed a company, he says.

    These categories should be scored differ-

    ently to promote small-scale fishers receiv-

    ing rights alongsidemajor companies, he be-

    lieves.

    Fees up 26%

    Up for comment are also draft application

    forms and application fees, which have in-

    creased by 26%. This is because there has

    been no increase in the last ten years, Mid-

    dleton explains. However, small-scale fish-

    ers will not be required to pay these fees.

    The application process is expected to cost

    the department R45m, with R10m recovered

    through the application fees.

    The results of the application process will

    be announced in February next year.

    V Public consultation meetings will take place at the

    multipurpose hall in Ocean View and the Hout Bay

    civic centre on Monday 20 July between 10:00 and

    noon. On Tuesday 21 July a meeting will take place

    in Fish Hoek between 10:00 and noon.

    The fishing rights allocation process is now open for public consultation. PHOTO: NICOLE MCCAIN

    Bus passengers to surf while commuting

    The council wants to help commuters keep

    up to date on WhatsApp, social media and

    emailwithout the danger of driving and tak-

    ing your eyes off the road.

    The council plans to give passengers on

    all MyCiti buses free access to the internet

    while they ride along in the near future.

    TheCity of CapeTownhas issued a tender

    for a service provider to install and operate

    a Wi-Fi service on all MyCiti buses, it has

    announced in a statement.

    Our vision is that passengerswill be able

    to connect their own devices to the internet

    using the Wi-Fi provided on MyCiti buses.

    Wewant the service to be available on every

    operating MyCiti bus at all times whilst in

    service. Basic use of the service will be free.

    This means that each passenger will have

    use of a limited amount of data for a limited

    amount of time each day at no charge. The

    minimumno charge data allowance per day

    per passenger will no be less than 50MB,

    the statement says.

    The tenderprocesswill be completed later

    in the year and will run on a pilot basis for

    six months, after which Wi-Fi will progres-

    sively become available on all MyCiti

    routes and buses over the following six

    months.

    The council believes that providing this

    internet access to residents will contribute

    to the social and economic upliftment of the

    citys communities.

    rectly published in Xhosa in last weeks

    BANTRY BAY

    Brittanys cooking

    takes the cake

    NICOLE MCCAIN

    @nickymccain

    A

    young Bantry Bay resident has been

    cooking up a storm.

    Brittany Bendall recently took the top

    award at theBanksYouthDay cook-off com-

    petition.

    Entrants were required to submit a photo

    or video of their dish to the competitions

    Facebook page. The three postingswith the

    most likes were then invited to cook in the

    Banks Kitchen Boutique demo kitchen and

    judged by celebrity chef Jenny Morris.

    TheCampsBayHighpupil, although only

    15, says her family and friends provided in-

    valuable support, which sent her through

    to the cook-off.

    Here she proved herself deserving of the

    top spot when she created a Waterfall beef

    salad, which has spicy beef strips served in

    refreshing salad parcels, at the finals.

    Bendall entered the competition after her

    Consumer Science teacher introduced it to

    her, never thinking she would be selected

    for the cook-off.

    And when she was, she had prepared a

    dessert and was caught off guard when told

    to select ingredients for a new dish.

    Bendall has been cooking since child-

    hood, with her chef mother teaching her all

    the tricks of the trade.

    From little she used to tell us to come

    watch what she was doing. We didnt need

    babysitters because we could do everything

    for ourselves, she says.

    She now helps her mother during her

    cooking classes, held at the high school.

    Theyoung chef realisedher passionwhen

    she took up Consumer Studies last year.

    I love cooking and being in the kitchen.

    Thats my favourite place, she says.

    Bendall hopes to follow in her mothers

    footsteps and pursue a career in the culina-

    ry world.

    And Bendalls advice for other young

    chefs?

    Keep calm in the kitchen and believe in

    yourself. Cook from the heart, she says.

    Bantry Bay resident Brittany Bendall took

    first prize in a local cooking competition.
