Ireland looseforward, CJ Stander, received a red card during the first Test of the Castle Lager Incoming Series between South Africa and Ireland on Saturday, 11 June at DHL Newlands in Cape Town.

The matter was heard by the Judicial Officer Terry Willis of Australia on Sunday 12 and Monday 13 June.

After hearing the evidence and submissions made by Gerrie Swart, representative of the player, the Judicial Officer was not satisfied on the balance of probability that the referee, Mathieu Raynal of France, was wrong when he issued the red card to the player.

As a result, the player was suspended for one match and will miss the second Test of the Castle Lager Incoming Series between Ireland and South Africa, scheduled for Saturday 18 June at Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg, whereafter he is free to play again.

Today the City of Cape Town achieved another first in South Africa, with an important step towards our goal to become the digital capital of Africa by launching the pilot phase of Wi-Fi provision on our MyCiTi buses.

As an opportunity city, we understand the demands of the 21st century and the greater need for connectedness.

As of part of a pilot phase, Wi-Fi has been installed on 10 MyCiTi buses, which will first be tested on the various feeder routes across the city.

Once the service has been tested on the feeder routes, the full roll-out will be expanded to all 380 buses such as the trunk routes in Atlantis, Table View, Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha.

Passengers on these buses will be able to connect their Wi-Fi-enabled devices (cellphones, laptops, tablets) to the Wi-Fi.

Late last year, the City of Cape Town awarded a tender to VAST Networks to provide and manage the provision of Wi-Fi on MyCiTi buses. 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.
