Cape Town-born singer and season 1 finalist of The Voice SA, Robin Pieters, drops his latest music single today – ahead of his much anticipated annual sold out musical celebration, It’s A Love Thing Vol. 2, this evening at GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World in Cape Town.
Pieters’ newest single, Fool, hits radio stations this week and this hot new musical release is a project that was co-written between Pieters and The Voice SA’s 2017 winner, Craig Lucas.
For Pieters, working with his fellow The Voice SA alumni on this song was “exciting”.
“Craig and I met way before he entered The Voice SA and I always believed in him as a singer. He is immensely talented as a singer and a writer and I knew I had to work with him. We have became great friends over the years and it was a joy to get into studio to work on this single with him.”
Adds Pieters: “The song speaks about a seven-year relationship gone wrong. It chronicles the end of one phase of my life and me moving on.”
Fool was written earlier this year after Lucas and Pieters decided to collaborate musically for this first time. The track was produced and recorded at Cosher Studios in Cape Town. Continue reading

To accommodate the State of the Nation Address and the opening of Parliament on Friday 16 February 2018, the National Government and the South African Police Service (SAPS) have requested that extended road closures be effected in the city.
Roads, mostly in the CBD, will be closed from 06:00 to midnight on Friday 16 February 2018 to accommodate the State of the Nation Address.
The road closures will affect the normal flow of traffic in and around the city bowl, Newlands, and the M3 and N2 city-bound lanes. As such, road users are asked to plan their routes accordingly.
Road users are also alerted to the closure of the M3 and N2 at 17:45 on Friday. The M5 will be the best option as an alternative route.
A detailed breakdown of the closures/restrictions and deviations is available on the City’s website: http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre%20Assets/State%20Of%20the%20Nation%20Address-Road%20closures-16%20February%202018.pdf
STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S SPEAKER, ALDERMAN DIRK SMIT
I am subject to an order of the High Court which requires me to exercise my discretion on whether or not a secret ballot should be held on the motion of no confidence and removal of the Executive Mayor.
I therefore wish to read my decision and the reasons into the record.
I have carefully considered representations made to me on behalf of the Executive Mayor motivating a secret ballot.
I have also considered representations submitted on behalf of the Democratic Alliance (DA).
I have considered the factors which the court requires me to consider.
I have taken into account the remarks of the judge that the DA caucus was divided on whether to support a motion of no confidence, and also that the parties in the litigation do not object to a secret ballot. Continue reading
Aanbod in feesterrein bied uitstekende waarde vir geld
“Die KKNK se splinternuwe Kuierbuurt bied hope familievermaak vir oud en jonk en feesgangers kan daagliks hier saam met ou bekendes, familie en vriende kuier,” sê Hugo Theart, waarnemende uitvoerende hoof van die KKNK.
Feesgangers kan tussen Donderdag, 29 Maart en Woensdag, 4 April dié Kuierbuurt vind op die Oudtshoorn Sportgronde (REC), asook die Vredestraat Sportterrein. Die fees word in die nasionale skoolvakansie en oor Paasnaweek aangebied.
Volgens Theart bied kaartjies tot die Kuierbuurt uitstekende waarde vir geld, veral met die baie gewilde weekkaartjies. “Hierdie weekkaartjies kos slegs R255 en bied nie net toegang tot die Kuierbuurt met sy stalletjies, rusareas, kroeë en ander doendinge nie, maar ook tot die ses aandkonserte op die Huisgenoot-verhoog,” sê Theart.
“Die Huisgenoot-verhoog se ses aandvertonings, word in die vorm van piekniek-konserte aangebied. Ons moedig almal aan om ‘n stoel of kombers te bring, die kosstalletjies en kroeë te ondersteun en musiek deur van ons land se topkunstenaars te geniet,” sê Theart. Continue reading
