The Bo-Kaap is Cape Town’s oldest surviving residential neighbourhood and offers visitors a glimpse of a way of life that is rare in most modern cities.

The area’s historical character is, however, under pressure given its proximity to the central business district and its large-scale developments and traffic congestion, and urban renewal which is driving a high demand for properties within the Bo-Kaap.

The City’s proposal to include the Bo-Kaap area in a Heritage Protection Overlay Zone is aimed at conserving the neighbourhood’s unique historical character and way of life by managing development in a sustainable and considered manner.

This morning Executive Mayor of Cape Town, Dan Plato, visited the City of Cape Town’s Call Centre and spoke to residents about some of the concerns that they had. The Call Centre receives an average of 2,5 million contacts per year, and the majority of the calls received are answered in under two minutes.

‘I was very happy to see how friendly and professional our staff are. Some of the problems they deal with are difficult ones, but they always act in a professional manner and this shows with customer satisfaction ratings. The customer feedback survey indicates that customers are generally satisfied with service that they receive from the Call Centre and our team is committed to maintaining the highest level of customer service.

‘I’ve asked the Call Centre management for a report on the nature of the calls so that we can look at how best to streamline our responses to service requests and ensure we deal with some of these challenges before they become a problem for our residents,’ said Mayor Plato.

Today, I am pleased to break ground on the path-breaking Conradie Better Living Model Game Changer development.

This marks a significant milestone in the provincial government’s efforts to redress the legacy of apartheid spatial planning, and to deliver well-located, affordable integrated housing opportunities for citizens living in the province.

As we break ground today, with our partners the City of Cape Town and Concor Construction, we celebrate the realisation of the enormous effort and hard work of a dedicated project team over the past three years.

It has not been an easy road to get to this point, but the results will be worth it –  the pioneering development of an affordable, mixed-use, residentially-led development close to the Cape Town CBD.

It’s derby time in South Africa and on Friday all Guinness PRO14 roads will lead to Port Elizabeth where the Isuzu Southern Kings and Toyota Cheetahs will take centre stage in their first encounter of the season, which is also the only match of the weekend.

The clash will be significant for both teams, as the Toyota Cheetahs will look to maintain their unbeaten run against their South African counterparts after winning all three previous matches between them in the competition, while the Isuzu Southern Kings will be desperate to register their second victory of the season.

The Free Staters are fresh off a morale-boosting 27-12 victory against Zebre Rugby Club in Italy – their third victory in five outings – and this is expected to boost their confidence going into the clash.

The home side, in turn, will have their sights set on bouncing back from their disappointing 38-0 defeat against Edinburgh in Scotland, especially after an encouraging spell in their four previous encounters in which they suffered three defeats by seven points or less.

South Africa’s top players wearing their new jerseys inspired by Marvel’s Spider-Man, Thor, Black Panther and Captain America will run out at Cape Town Stadium on #SuperHeroSunday (3 February) at the first public appearance of the Marvel makeover of SA’s Vodacom Super Rugby teams.

The Vodacom Super Rugby double-header on Sunday 3 February will be the first time that the four local franchises will wear their new Marvel-inspired jerseys. The jersey designs have each been meticulously crafted to reflect the superheroes the South African teams will represent while also staying true to each team’s already iconic colour identity.

The Emirates Lions will be dressed in the familiar webbed suit of Spider-Man; the Cell C Sharks will adopt the Black Panther look; the DHL Stormers will be looking to hammer their opponents in the colours of Thor; and the Vodacom Bulls will shield all attacks thrown their way as Captain America.

The jerseys will be exclusively worn in most South African derbies. The teams will wear in their usual jerseys for matches against international opposition.

In 2018 – 2,6 million international passengers were recorded by Cape Town International Airport (CTIA), representing a 9,6% growth from 2017, despite the drought and other challenges experienced by the region. This growth came from long-haul carriers from outside the Southern African region and the uptick bodes well for the local economy. Read more below:

Overall passenger numbers grew from 10 693 063 in 2017 to 10 777 524 in 2018, equating to an increase of 84 000 additional passengers passing through the airport, at a growth rate of 0,8%.

There was a slight decline of 1,4% in domestic passengers for the year. In the month of December 2018, international passenger numbers grew by 3,7%, while domestic passenger numbers declined by 0,8%, year-on-year.

These numbers include all traffic through the domestic and international terminals (arrivals and departures), and may include repeat travellers throughout the year.

‘The City of Cape Town is delighted at the growth in international passenger numbers for 2018. The busy peak season and tourism growth to the region is encouraging in terms of sustainability, especially following what has been a challenging time for the tourism sector. More visitors mean increased benefits for the city and its residents,’ said the City’s newly appointed Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Asset Management, Alderman James Vos.

The City of Cape Town will host a competition to accommodate displaced minstrel troupes following the inability of certain associations to host competitions for their troupes. Read more below:

The troupes that belong to the Cape Town Minstrels Carnival Association (CTMCA), approached the City of Cape Town for assistance. Following a meeting with some of the members of the displaced troupes yesterday, the City has agreed to work with the individual troupes to host a minstrels competition which will allow them all to compete on Sunday 20 January and Sunday 27 January 2019 at the Athlone Stadium. (Following the annual Tweede Nuwe Jaar celebration in the city centre, minstrel troupes have competitions in their communities over the following weeks. Some of these troupes have been unable to compete as the CTMCA is unable to comply with legislative requirements.)

This gesture will allow the troupes to celebrate their cultural heritage. Additionally, it will give their families and friends an opportunity to come out and support them.
