The following is an extract from a speech delivered by City of Cape Town Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille, at an event to hand over title deeds to Lagunya business owners, held at the Gugulethu Sports Complex today, 28 June 2016

Good morning, goeie môre, molweni, as-salaam alaikum, shalom.

The City of Cape Town would like to inform residents to be on the lookout for a scam artist posing as a City of Cape Town employee.

The City has received at least three reports from Milnerton, Claremont and Rondebosch of residents being fleeced of thousands of rands by a person claiming to represent the City as part of an electricity and/or water meter upgrade project. The person further indicates that pensioners are being prioritised for the upgrades and makes them part with significant amounts of cash on the premise that his colleagues will arrive the following day to complete the work.

The City can assure the public that the modus operandi described does not conform with our processes. Our field staff do not handle cash – all such transactions are done at the City’s customer centres or via the appropriate electronic channels.

While the City is currently rolling out an electricity meter replacement programme, the planned replacements are free. Each replacement has a notification number on our internal systems which the City call centre can verify should a resident enquire. In addition, we do targeted marketing and mailbox drops of any planned work to be carried out in an area. Continue reading

5, 6, and 7 July three nights and a mere 450 seats make this highly anticipated new album reveal July’s hot, must-see show.

Top Dog SA’s saxophonist Donveno Prins, who most recently lead the band for the inaugural run for David Kramer’s Kanala show at The Fugard Theatre, is also the band’s leader. Add Camillo Lombard on keyboards, Charlton Daniels on bass, Mornay Hoffmeester on drums and Mark Williams on guitar and you’re in the company of some of South Africa’s most highly sought after and hugely respected music makers who’ve played with some of the greats. Now it’s their turn to shine and you’re invited.

Described as a fresh vibrant band, and a force to be reckoned with, Top Dog SA has already made its mark in venues as diverse as Bellville Velodrome, right through to Carnival City in Johannesburg. They’ve also featured at major music festivals, including Cape Town International Jazz Festival, Jazz On The Rocks Festival, Safricon Jazz Fest, Kenya, and Satchmo’s Jazz Fest in Nigeria.

The film adaption of Jojo Moyes’ bestselling novel, Me Before You, is the tear jerking girlie flick to be featured at the Nu Metro Girl’s Night Out at GrandWest on Thursday, 30 June 2016. The romantic comedy drama stars Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin, Jenna Coleman, Charles Dance, Matthew Lewis, Ben Lloyd-Hughs and Janet McTeer.

The story centres on a young and quirky Louisa “Lou” Clark who moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor, a wealthy young banker left paralysed following an accident two years earlier. His cynical outlook starts to change when Clark shows him that life is actually worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither of them could have imagined.

Nu Metro’s Girls’ Night Out starts at 19h00, with the movie beginning at 20h00. Tickets to Girls’ Night Out at Nu Metro GrandWest cost R65 per person. Bookings are essential and can be made via the call centre on 0861-CINEMA (+27 861 24 6362), online via or at the cinema.

Nu Metro has announced its new tickets pricing as follows: For Ages 13 years and older 2D movies are R65 and 3D movies are R85. For Ages 12 years and younger 2D movies are R45 and 3D movies are R65.

Some of the most recent projects include the R55,4 million upgrade of major traffic arteries in Woodstock, Paarden Eiland and Wynberg. Continue reading
