The City of Cape Town will this week celebrate Youth Day, which falls on Thursday 16 June 2016, with a wide range of events and activities to commemorate the role the youth played during the 1976 Soweto Uprising.

Youth Day is also about celebrating the important role of the youth in building a vibrant society and contributing towards the diversity of our city.

Various City of Cape Town departments, together with members of the community, will participate. All media are welcome to attend.

Transport for Cape Town

On Youth Day, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member: Transport for Cape Town, Councillor Brett Herron, will hand out about 8 000 whistles to young commuters at the MyCiTi station inReygersdal Drive in Atlantis at 10:30

The whistle handout is part of the City’s focus on the safety of women and girls in Atlantis. In 2014 the City partnered with the United Nations in a Women Safe Cities Initiative with the Atlantis community as the focus point.

The Cape Town International Convention Centre will again commemorate Youth Day with a special Youth Day programme. It is the third year running that the centre will be hosting youth from Cape Town.

Youth Day is significant in the history of South Africa, and at the CTICC it is important that we highlight the impact youth – past and present – have on their communities and our society.

The CTICC will host learners from Mitchell’s Plain School of Skills and Lathi-Tha School of Skills on 13th June with a packed Youth Day programme. Both schools provide an alternative learning environment to youth and support them through skills and academic development. Continue reading

City Health’s message to young people this Youth Month is that disease doesn’t ask for an identity document and can affect anyone – young or old. Read more below:

The City of Cape Town’s Health Directorate continues to face a number of challenges relating to youth health – some more serious than others.

The Directorate has made strides in the last decade to attract more young people to primary healthcare facilities and the results are evident, in particular around reproductive health.

Between 2006 and 2015, the number of babies born to mothers under the age of 18 dropped from 5,3% to 3,87% of all births recorded. Other successes include the high uptake of contraceptive methods, including male and female condoms, and an enthusiasm for the youth-specific facilities and sessions set aside by City Health (such as the Site B youth clinic pictured above).

The City of Cape Town has allocated about R350 million in the 2016/17 financial year for infrastructure projects in the Voortrekker Road Corridor (VRC) as part of its ongoing efforts to revitalise this substantial area.

This investment is over and above the normal City-funded service delivery allocations to this area and aims to improve urban conditions and to unlock a range of investment opportunities in future.

‘The core belief that underpins our efforts in this important part of our metro is that strategic public spending will encourage further development and investment from the private sector.

‘Our targeted investment drive in infrastructure and public space upgrades aims not only to lay a solid and attractive foundation for further private sector investment, but also shows our commitment to enhancing the second largest central business district area in the metro and its surrounds.

A restaurant owner found with over 850 unexplained rock lobsters was one of 165 suspects arrested by the City’s enforcement agencies in the last week. Read more below:

A Glencairn restaurant owner will appear in court soon following her arrest for the illegal possession of West Coast rock lobster.

The City’s Law Enforcement Marine Unit, assisted by a Table Mountain National Park ranger, conducted inspections of restaurants on Saturday 11 June 2016. At a premises in Glencairn, they found 864 rock lobsters. The owner could not provide an invoice for the goods and offered the staff a R15 000 bribe. She was arrested for possession of rock lobster without an invoice, possession of undersized rock lobster, and attempted bribery.

‘This arrest came about because our officers turned their attention to the end of the value chain in the illegal rock lobster trade. This was a significant bust and a timely reminder that poachers enjoy support even in the local market. That the woman had the temerity to try and bribe our staff casts further doubt on her character and also makes me wonder what else she might be involved in to go to those lengths,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.

STATEMENT BY EXECUTIVE MAYOR PATRICIA DE LILLE

It is with overwhelming sorrow that we have learnt about the tragedy which has befallen the family of Mr Patrick Abrahams of Eastridge, Mitchells Plain. A fire led to the death of three of his children (aged 3, 13 and 18 years old), his three grandchildren (18 months, 6 and 7 years old), his son-in-law (35) and a family friend aged 14 years old.

We know that nothing can ease their pain in the midst of this heartbreak, but we are attempting to assist this family in an effort to ease some of the strain. The City’s disaster response team will be assisting the family with food parcels, blankets, clothing, vanity packs and building material.

Our thoughts are with Mr Abrahams and his family during this time of immeasurable loss. We also carry the four family members who are still in hospital in our thoughts and wish them a swift recovery.

It is my hope that the Abrahams family will find strength and comfort from their loved ones and all fellow Capetonians, during this time of bereavement.

On Saturday morning at 08:24 seven people died when a house in Macbeth Street in Eastridge Mitchells Plain burned down. Of the seven, five were children with two burnt beyond recognition. The other two deceased were adults, one male and one female. Five others adults were critically injured and rushed to Mitchells Plain District Hospital by Western Cape Government Health Emergency Medical Services.

The City of Cape Town would like to inform customers in Zone 15 (as per the City’s load-shedding schedule) of an electricity supply interruption from 23:00 on Saturday 11 June to 04:00 on Sunday 12 June 2016 in order to facilitate emergency repairs on a faulty cable link box on the City’s high-voltage network.

Affected areas include Paarden Eiland, Woodstock East, Observatory, Maitland West, Ndabeni and Rondebosch North.

The City is looking into possible temporary network adjustments in order to maintain supply to as large an area as possible. Residents are also assured that the Groote Schuur Hospital’s power supply will not be affected. Continue reading
