    THE illegitimate Woodstock Commu-nity Police Forum has been dissolvedby the Western Cape Community PoliceBoard.

    Rumours about the forum being disband-ed spread after it was discovered that an un-constitutional election took place.

    The forum acts as a watchdog for police per-formance and is the direct link between thestation management and residents within theprecinct.

    Hanif Loonat, the chairperson of the board,says the forum was never disbanded, but

    rather dissolved by the board due to the elec-tion process not following the constitution.

    The board decided to dissolve the forumand have a re-election process, which allowsall organisations to be involved, saysLoonat.

    He confirmed that the forum had been ille-gally formed and the board did not requireany further reasons to dissolve it.

    The current chairperson of the forum,James Cowley, confirmed that no decisionhas been handed in writing to the membersof the forum, but added that a re-electionprocess was on the cards.

    The members of the department say thatthe proper process had not been followed as

    some of the authorities were not present inthe forums annual general meeting, saysCowley.

    He continues that information received bythe forums members suggested that the pro-vincial department for Community Safetywas also not made aware of the former chair-persons resignation.

    However, Loonat was adamant that no no-tification was required as the forum wasdeemed illegal.

    I cannot understand why these importantbodies or authorities were not present in thatmeeting. We will have to see what the out-come of the re-election process is, Cowleyadds.

    Station Commander for the Woodstock Po-lice Station, Colonel Duma Ntsezo, explainedthat the correct procedures are now being fol-lowed.

    Loonat says discussions with organisa-tions in the area are currently taking place.

    We will go through a constitutionallyelected process and this time around, thingswill be done correctly, Loonat concluded.

    Dear reader,I hope you had a blessed, peaceful Easter

    weekend.The year has rapidly rolled into April, sig-

    nalling the beginning of a new financial yearwhich I found myself heading into minusmore than R11 000 after I had invested in me-chanical repairs to my trusted, mature Volvo,and acquired an iPad and iPhone.

    Cars and money aside, I now know that Ihave well and truly arrived in the world ofgadgets and there is no turning back.

    I currently own three cell-phones, a (company) laptop, PCat home, and an iPad. What elsedo I need? Resistant initially tojoining the now cool world of21st Century gadget geeks, Icant imagine my life of com-munication without my BB,iPhone, iPad and other Is stillto come. Now, whats the cardcalled that I need for my iPad...think its a microsim, right?

    Whatever, Ill find place for itin my lightweight Apple bagwhich from here on, accompa-nies me everywhere and willform part of my baggage. Beinga neat freak, slightly obsessive, packing forany trip is always an event, for me and theunfortunate few who are part of my plans;whether they want to be or not. I can envisagemy luggage when I attend the next MLW (Me-dia Leaders at Work) training session: it willconsist of a burgundy suitcase on wheels formy perfectly folded clothes, matching bagsfor my toiletries, shoes and sportswear anda travel-friendly bag for my beloved gadgets.

    Im notorious for overpacking. In my fa-vour though, all the extra clothes I pack (usu-ally six outfits for two days) have come inhandy, even if mainly in the virtual realm.On one trip though, forewarned yielded divi-dends; I could offer a colleague one of my

    spare cardigans when the weather changed.But, enough about me and more about our

    readers...We published a cartoon last week that at-

    tracted comment from some readers, includ-ing Judy who wrote (slightly edited): DearFeroza, Im not sure what this picture is sup-posed to depict. This is our time as Christianswhere we celebrate the crucifixion of ourLord and Saviour Jesus Christ who died androse again to give us eternal life and for thispicture to be put in this issue is totally inap-

    propriate. If youre wanting towish Christians a BlessedEaster then do so directly asyou havent done this in the en-tire paper. You couldve used apicture of a family on a wagonand horse, absolutely no needto use a picture which to melooks like Jesus on a donkeyand three crosses on the hill.

    I replied: Dear Judy, I hopeyou are well and that you arehaving a Blessed Easter week-end. Many thanks for youremail and valued feedback. Thecartoon was not intended to of-fend in any way. It depicts the

    mode of transport used then for what is a re-vered time of year, as opposed to modern day.It contrasts the slower pace of life then, ver-sus the speed of life today. I regret that youfeel offended. In no way was the image aimedat offending as our publications have high re-gard for all faiths. On page 2 of this weeks(3 Aprils) Peoples Post, I wished everyone aBlessed Easter (in my ConnectED column). Iwill certainly make mention of your com-ments in next weeks column.

    Till next time, go well!. ConnectED is a weekly column by Peo-

    ples Post Editor Feroza Miller-Isaacs, whocan be contacted on feroza@peoples-post.co.za.

    METRORAILs last minute price hike re-prieve turned into an absolute night-mare for the parastatal on Monday 2April when commuters ended up beingcharged up to 50 percent more for theirmonthly tickets.

    Metrorail has admitted that there was atechnical flaw in its system and promisedto refund all commuters who were affectedby the price shock. Commuters influencedby the glitch can take their tickets back tothe ticket office they purchased it from andtheywill be refundedaccordingly.New tick-ets will also be issued.

    The price saga started in March when
