Guttural toads and leopard toads look very similar to the untrained eye, and the identification of eggs and tadpoles (which look almost identical even to professionals) is particularly difficult. Continue reading

The City of Cape Town reminds residents that due to hot weather, an extended billing period, and the Level 2 water restriction tariffs, many may notice a spike in their water bills this month. We would also like to assure all residential customers that the Accounts Department has made allowance for the longer billing period. Residents are not being penalised in terms of the higher steps of the tariff, which are being applied correctly. Read more below:

In light of the recent enquiries and social media posts on the subject, the City of Cape Town would like to remind residents that increased water and sanitation tariffs have been implemented since 1 January 2016 as part of water restrictions.

For an average domestic customer, the differences in price are as follows:

Steps Unit Level 1 (10% reduction) Level 2 (20% reduction)
Step 1 (0 < 6 kl) Per kl R0 R0

Ajax Cape Town are delighted to have acquired the services of Ashley Hartog until the end on the 2015/16 Absa Premiership season.

Hartog started training with the Urban Warriors’ PSL side two weeks ago and made a big impression on head coach Roger De Sa and his technical team.

His massive work ethic, ability on the ball and professionalism was a key factor for De Sa. The vastly experienced Hartog previously played at club’s like FC Fortune, Sint Truidense (Belgium), SuperSport United and Maritzburg United among others.

The 33-year-old midfi elder has expressed his delight in signing with Ajax Cape Town, stating that he is highly impressed with the performance of the young players at the club.

“It’s been nice to train with these players for the two weeks before signing, seeing that I know most of the players here which made it very easy for me to fi t in. It’s very exciting to actually sign a contract with Ajax Cape Town because I was here before and it didn’t work out. To sign here at my age is a big thing for me. The team is doing great with so many young players, even the recent CAF trip to Angola had a lot of youngsters which is great to see. For a more experienced player to come in and settle in with them is also a great feeling,” commented Hartog. Continue reading
