The City is investigating after one of its Law Enforcement officers was arrested along with four other motorists during an operation to tackle illegal street racing. Read more below:

A City of Cape Town Law Enforcement officer is facing disciplinary and criminal charges after being arrested for reckless and negligent driving.

The officer was one of five motorists arrested on charges of reckless and negligent driving during an operation focusing on illegal street racing on Wednesday 2 March 2016. He and three others were arrested along Koeberg Road in Milnerton (which was the busiest spot for the evening) and one other was collared in Blue Downs. Officers also issued 78 fines for various other offences.

‘The operation was surprising for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I don’t think the Ghost Squad expected to catch one of their own colleagues behaving badly and breaking the law, but secondly, officers were surprised at the fact that Koeberg Road appears to be a new favourite among illegal drag-racers. The fact is we cannot tolerate such behaviour from staff who are paid to uphold the law. It is not only embarrassing to the City, but it is also a smack in the face of the public who look to our staff to set an example,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.

City of Cape Town staff are collecting thousands of dead carp in one section of Zeekoevlei. The City warns residents not to eat the fish and urges members of the public to stay clear of the area while the fish are being collected. Read more below:

It is estimated that approximately 5 000 individual fish or 6 to 7 tons of fish have died of suspected natural causes. More bodies are being discovered as the fish bloat and rise to the surface.

Fish kills, which refer to a localised die-off of fish populations, often occur at this time of the year with the change of seasons when water levels are low and temperatures are high. Fish sometimes become stressed during breeding and they may pass on infectious disease due to the grouping of large numbers of adult fish together.

Through the Open Data Portal, the City of Cape Town’s data is incrementally released to the public in a useable format. It is available to all for free to enhance transparency and promote the use of the City’s data for broader social and economic benefit.

‘On International Open Data Day, the City would like to hear from any of our residents who have ideas for using open data, want to find an interesting project to contribute towards, or are currently developing online platforms which leverage off the data which has been made available by the City. As a well-run, opportunity city we are always encouraging developers to work with us in helping the global open data community to grow,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Corporate Services and Compliance, Councillor Xanthea Limberg.
