The City of Cape Town today, 15 February 2017, received a consignment of durable medical equipment from the Taipei Liaison Office based in the city.

For many years, the Amitofo Care Centre (ACC), a charity organisation based in Taiwan, has distributed durable medical equipment, medicines and clothing to people in need across Africa.

The City of Cape Town has been a recipient of this generous donation for the last five years. Through the partnership with the ACC, the City has been able to donate the following items to residents across the city:
· 494 wheelchairs
· 219 sets of crutches
· 142 walkers
· 187 commodes

The City of Cape Town’s Speaker, Alderman Dirk Smit, enjoys a good working relationship with the Cape Town Taipei Liaison Office which facilitates the receipt of the containers housing much-needed durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, crutches, walkers and commodes. Continue reading

GrandWest provides the stage for the internationally acclaimed comedy, theatre and music phenomenon, the Blue Man Group, during their first tour to Cape Town in March 2017. The group’s award winning theatrical production will run at the Grand Arena from 21 March to 2 April 2017.

“The show combines comedy, theatre, rock concert and a dance party, making for remarkable entertainment not seen live in South Africa before,” says Elouise Matthys, PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest.

The acclaimed stage show is best known and recognised for its trio of bald and blue performers. Since its inception in 1991, through collaboration between three friends, Chris Winks, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Blue Man Group has performed in prominent theatres and venues in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Australia, Sweden and the Netherlands amongst others.

The latest theatrical tour showcases classic Blue Man favourites, along with brand new content. Now approaching their 26th year of creativity, this artistic group is continually updating and refreshing Blue Man shows with new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and state of the art audiovisual technology.

Cofounder Chris Wink says: “We are honoured to share our show with the people of South Africa and beyond. We believe the Blue Man`s universal message of joyful exuberance and euphoric celebration resonates within all of us.”

There are several shows scheduled during the Blue Man Group’s run at the Grand Arena, including a few afternoon shows to accommodate younger fans. Tickets range in price from R340 to R655 at Computicket.

As of Monday 20 February 2017, the identities of all customers who pay admission-of-guilt fines or who appear in court regarding contravention of Level 3B water restrictions will be made public by the City of Cape Town.

The City will also publish the lists of fines issued in various areas where contraventions take place, including street names but without street numbers.

Similarly, street names of the top 100 highest consumers for each category of domestic, commercial, and government user who are under investigation for contravening the water restrictions will be published, along with the water meter reading.

We will also be writing to these customers demanding that they provide the City with an explanation for their relatively high water use. Our investigations will continue should no satisfactory explanation be given.

In light of the current water crisis, today 16 February 2017, along with the four area-based mayoral committee members, I started delivering warning notices to some of the households which we have identified in Pinelands with high water consumption.

DHL Stormers prop Oli Kebble will join the Glasgow Warriors at the conclusion of the 2017 season on a two-year deal.

The 24-year-old former Junior Springbok made his DHL Stormers debut in 2014 and has since earned 34 Vodacom Super Rugby caps.

Kebble is contracted to Western Province Rugby until the end of the 2017 season and will head to Scotland once he has concluded his commitments in Cape Town

The move to Glasgow will not be Kebble’s first time in the UK as he previously studied at Dulwich College in London and was part of the London Irish Academy.

Director of Rugby Gert Smal said that Kebble has grown enormously in his time with the Union.

“Oli has come a long way in his time with us and leaves us a rounded player who has a lot to offer,” he said.

Western Province Rugby Group CEO Paul Zacks said that Kebble’s contribution to the Union has been greatly appreciated. Continue reading

The City of Cape Town is pleased to announce that the Minister of Police, Nathi Nhleko, has extended greater powers to City Law Enforcement in terms of the Second-Hand Goods Act, which will significantly bolster the municipality’s efforts to clamp down on metal and cable theft.

Minister Nhleko has, under Section 31(1) of the Act, extended powers contemplated in Chapter 9 to law enforcement officers in the Metals Theft Unit.

This means that officers in the City’s Metals Theft Unit now have the authority to do routine inspections and enter the premises of registered dealers in order to investigate compliance with the Act, enter and conduct searches and seizures, and seal off premises at which second-hand goods are found in order to prevent a person from conducting business in contravention of the Act.

In addition, law enforcement officers will now have the power to execute warrants on properties.

By empowering the officers of the Metals Theft Unit, the City’s efforts to fight metal and cable theft will be greatly strengthened. Continue reading

Today I visited beneficiaries of the latest phase of our large-scale ceiling retrofit project in Heinz Park, Philippi.

The City of Cape Town is currently implementing Phase 2 of this massive redress project by installing ceilings and water-proofing in around 3 451 government-subsidised houses which were built between 1994 and 2005 without water-proofing and ceilings.

The City has now commenced the second phase where we are investing R60 million to install new ceilings and weather-proof roofs where deemed necessary in houses in Macassar, Chris Nissen, Gordon’s Bay, Heinz Park, Phumlani, Silver City and Sir Lowry’s Pass Village.

In 2014, I became aware of around 40 000 low-cost subsidy homes which were built without ceilings and water-proofing. As part of our commitment to redressing the wrongs of the past, we undertook this large-scale ceiling retrofit project.

The fact that the residents lived in these conditions for many years has caused residents much discomfort due to poor thermal performance and condensation, which gives rise to damp conditions and poor indoor air quality and can cause respiratory illnesses. Continue reading

As at today, 13 February 2017, dam levels have dropped to 36,2,%, which is 1,2% down from a week ago. With the last 10% of a dam’s water not being useable, dam levels are effectively at 26,2%. The latest actual consumption is 825 million litres of collective use per day. The City of Cape Town has now lowered its water consumption target from 800 million litres to 700 million litres for collective water usage per day. Read more below:

If we are to reduce the consumption to 700 million litres of collective use per day, and at the current draw-down rate on dams, we could be looking at approximately 135 days of useable water left.

While the City thanks all of its great water-saving residents and businesses across the metro, water consumption must be lowered immediately. Cape Town is in a water-scarce region and at all times, but especially during this water crisis, we need to use water sparingly. Level 3b water restrictions, which limit the use of potable water for non-essential purposes, are in place.

‘The City has adjusted its target downwards from 800 million litres per day of collective use to 700 million litres per day of collective use. Continue reading

DHL Stormers injury report – 13/02/2017

DHL Stormers wing Leolin Zas has been ruled out of action for approximately a year with a broken leg.

Zas fractured both his Fibula and Tibia in the pre-season friendly against the Emirates Lions on Saturday, after coming on as a replacement having recently returned from an unrelated leg injury.

The other major casualty from the 57-40 victory against the Emirates Lions was centre Juan de Jongh who tore his medial collateral ligament and will consequently spend around 10-12 weeks on the sidelines.
