    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 sa
