An alleged rapist was one of 186 suspects arrested during patrols and operations across the city in the last week.

The City of Cape Town’s enforcement agencies arrested 186 suspects during operations and patrols in the last seven days.

One of them was a 47-year-old man arrested on a charge of rape. Officers on patrol in Parow were flagged down by a 12-year-old boy on Wednesday 18 May 2016. The boy informed them that he had been sexually assaulted at a nearby canal and escorted officers to the scene. En route he pointed out the suspect, who was immediately arrested by the officers.

‘This was one of two rape suspects arrested by our enforcement agencies on the same day. It is an extremely sensitive issue and I hope that the investigation by the South African Police Service is handled appropriately. I want to commend the young boy for seeking help and speaking out. It was an extremely brave thing to do,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith. Continue reading

The Vodacom Bulls defeated the DHL Stormers 17-13 in a typical, tense South African derby at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday evening to keep their unbeaten home record in this year’s campaign intact. They also halted a run of four Vodacom Super Rugby losses in a row against their Cape Town rivals.

The two teams were locked at 6-6 at halftime and after the DHL Stormers have managed to close the gap in the second half to just 14-13, an excellent a drop goal by replacement flyhalf Tian Schoeman eventually clinched the match for the Pretoria-side.

As a result of their hard-fought win, the Vodacom Bulls have moved into top place on the African Conference 1 ladder. Although they have the same amount as points as the DHL Stormers, namely 32 points, the Pretoria franchise grabbed first position because of their better points margin.

Africa Conference 2 leaders, the Emirates Lions, consolidated their top-spot by scoring another impressive 52-24 win over the Jaguares in their early Saturday afternoon fixture in Johannesburg.

Meanwhile in Durban, the Cell C Sharks continued with their improved form of late by overpowering the Southern Kings 53-0. The Kings defended much better in the second half and they only conceded two more tries following the home side’s scoring spree of 43 points in the opening stanza. Continue reading

The Springbok Sevens team finished the 2015/2016 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in second place after ending up as losing finalists in the HSBC London Sevens on Sunday.

Scotland stunned the Blitzboks with a 27-26 win in the final, their first ever title in the series, with a try in the dying seconds of the pulsating match. The Scots had a 10-7 lead at the break, but South Africa overhauled them to lead 26-15 with two minutes to play. Two late tries stunned the South Africans though.

“We are very disappointed in the way we finished it here tonight,” Springbok Sevens captain, Philip Snyman, said afterwards.

“Well done to Scotland who never stopped playing. We were caught napping at the end and paid the price. We also made too many errors. That said, we made the final and finished second overall, so are keen to improve on that with the Olympics the next aim for us.”

Snyman applauded Fiji for winning the series. Continue reading

Paarl Boys High cement top spot

Paarl Boys High confirmed their number one position on the SA Schools rankings after an impressive win against Grey College on Saturday.

The hosts were first on the scoreboard through fullback and man of the match, Gianni Lombard, after Grey were trapped for going off their feet. He extended their lead to 6-0 midway through the first half slotting his second penalty.

Grey flyhalf, Christopher Schreuder, succeeded with a penalty of his own minutes later to get the visitors on the score board. Continue reading
