The return on investment has been huge since the launch of the City’s initiative to reward informants which sees members of the public paid a small cash amount in exchange for blowing the whistle on crime. Read more below:

The City of Cape Town has made dozens of arrests and recovered stolen goods and contraband worth millions of rands, courtesy of its Informant Reward System.

The City’s Safety and Security Directorate formulated the Informant Reward Policy in 2013. It makes provision for payment of up to R1 000 for information that will lead to an arrest or the successful confiscation or recovery of stolen goods or contraband.

Since the initiative was launched in October 2013, 34 payments have been made to informants, totalling R33 500. In return, the City has made 51 arrests: Continue reading

Four schools across the city have benefitted from a pilot project initiated by the City’s Social Development and Early Childhood Development Directorate in partnership with NICRO. The project is aimed at preventing anti-social behaviour, bullying and victimisation. Read more below.

The City of Cape Town has partnered with the National Institute for Crime Prevention and the Rehabilitation of Offenders (NICRO) to start a Safety Ambassadors Programme – an intervention aimed at reducing crime at schools. As part of the City’s grant-in-aid initiative, NICRO received R230 490 to implement youth awareness programmes across the city. Continue reading

Warrant evaders were among nearly 400 suspects arrested by the City’s enforcement agencies in the last week. Read more below:

The City of Cape Town’s Traffic Service closed the net on 199 warrant evaders in the last week. Operation Reclaim roadblocks were held in various parts of the city in the hunt for motorists with outstanding warrants of arrest for not paying their traffic fines.

‘I’ve said it time and again: we are putting more resources into tracking down the “scofflaws” who think they can break the rules and simply get away with it. We are intensifying our efforts and I would therefore advise motorists with outstanding fines to settle their debt or they could be in for a nasty surprise,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.

SPEECH BY THE CITY’S EXECUTIVE MAYOR, PATRICIA DE LILLE

Note to editors: the following speech will be delivered by City of Cape Town Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille, at the official handover ceremony of 45 title deeds for the residents of Steurhof that will be held at the South Peninsula High School at 19:00 tonight.

Good evening, goeie naand, molweni, as-salaam alaikum, shalom.

I am here tonight to deliver on a promise that I made to all of you a few years ago. On 19 December 2012 I handed over letters of commitment for the transfer of Council rental units in Steurhof, Diep River. Continue reading

STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S EXECUTIVE DEPUTY MAYOR, ALDERMAN IAN NEILSON

The City of Cape Town notes the publication by Stats SA of the results of the Household Survey 2015. We note the data presented but believe that it needs to be interrogated and verified against other data before it can be used to manage future implementation.

In general, it is inexplicable that Stats SA uses ‘RDP standards’ when these standards have long been replaced. There are, for example, Department of Housing standards that are applied to service provision, and standards defined in the Water Services Act.

On energy provision, it is inexplicable that Stats SA has only reported the results at a provincial level, yet does not report this data at a metro level when it does do so for the other services. The data shows that 96% of households in the Western Cape receive electricity from mains for lighting. Continue reading

This from nbc.com:

Muhammad Ali, the silver-tongued boxer and civil rights champion who famously proclaimed himself “The Greatest” and then spent a lifetime living up to the billing, is dead.

Ali died Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications, a family spokesman confirmed to NBC News. He was 74.

“After a 32-year battle with Parkinson’s disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening,” Bob Gunnell, a family spokesman, told NBC News.

Ali had suffered for three decades from Parkinson’s Disease, a progressive neurological condition that slowly robbed him of both his legendary verbal grace and his physical dexterity. A funeral service is planned in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.

Even as his health declined, Ali did not shy from politics or controversy, releasing a statement in December criticizing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States. “We as Muslims have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda,” he said.

The recruitment, training and employment of nearly 400 rental stock monitors is meant to help improve the standard of living in City rental units as these monitors become the eyes and ears of their communities. 

The City of Cape Town has launched a new programme aimed at uplifting rental stock areas and addressing socio-economic challenges by empowering female tenants.

In the last month, 380 women have been recruited in nine rental stock areas with the assistance of local ward councillors. Candidates had to be legal rental stock tenants, older than 21, and upstanding members of their community who are willing to participate for the duration of the programme. Continue reading

Democratic Alliance press release by
Lorraine Botha MPP
Western Cape Spokesperson on Community Development
DA Constituency Head Cederberg and Bergrivier
 
1 June 2016
Release: immediately
 
The DA in the Western Cape is alarmed that Easy Pay and Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), both subsidiaries of Net1, will continue to disburse social grants to millions of beneficiaries despite reports of unlawful deductions taking place under their tenure, which has led to an R 800m loss to SASSA of which a mere R1,5m has been recovered.
                                                                           
In my capacity as the Chairperson of the Standing committee on Community Development in the Western Cape Provincial Parliament (WCPP), I will call a joint committee meeting, along with the Standing Committee on Public Accounts (SCOPA) where SASSA must explain the impact of the R 800m loss in grant money. I will also call on the entity to report on all matters relating to its financial management.

Springbok coach, Allister Coetzee, made the announcement on Monday afternoon in Stellenbosch, where the Boks are preparing for the first Test.
