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

The City of Cape Town is pleased to announce that the Minister of Police, Nathi Nhleko, has extended greater powers to City Law Enforcement in terms of the Second-Hand Goods Act, which will significantly bolster the municipality’s efforts to clamp down on metal and cable theft.

Minister Nhleko has, under Section 31(1) of the Act, extended powers contemplated in Chapter 9 to law enforcement officers in the Metals Theft Unit.

This means that officers in the City’s Metals Theft Unit now have the authority to do routine inspections and enter the premises of registered dealers in order to investigate compliance with the Act, enter and conduct searches and seizures, and seal off premises at which second-hand goods are found in order to prevent a person from conducting business in contravention of the Act.

In addition, law enforcement officers will now have the power to execute warrants on properties.

By empowering the officers of the Metals Theft Unit, the City’s efforts to fight metal and cable theft will be greatly strengthened. Continue reading

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

Today I visited beneficiaries of the latest phase of our large-scale ceiling retrofit project in Heinz Park, Philippi.

The City of Cape Town is currently implementing Phase 2 of this massive redress project by installing ceilings and water-proofing in around 3 451 government-subsidised houses which were built between 1994 and 2005 without water-proofing and ceilings.

The City has now commenced the second phase where we are investing R60 million to install new ceilings and weather-proof roofs where deemed necessary in houses in Macassar, Chris Nissen, Gordon’s Bay, Heinz Park, Phumlani, Silver City and Sir Lowry’s Pass Village.

In 2014, I became aware of around 40 000 low-cost subsidy homes which were built without ceilings and water-proofing. As part of our commitment to redressing the wrongs of the past, we undertook this large-scale ceiling retrofit project.

The fact that the residents lived in these conditions for many years has caused residents much discomfort due to poor thermal performance and condensation, which gives rise to damp conditions and poor indoor air quality and can cause respiratory illnesses. Continue reading

Acclaimed South African chef Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen, was delighted to learn last week, that his restaurant JAN has retained its Michelin star for 2017. Van der Westhuizen became the first South African to earn a Michelin star for his eatery – which is based in Nice in the south of France – when it received the award early last year.

Speaking from Nice, a very proud van der Westhuizen said: “Since JAN received its first star in 2016 the pressure was clearly on and, like in the movie Burnt, our natural instinct was to fear every guest. That’s how bad it gets. The psychological pressure is so intense that everything has to be perfect.

“The retention of the star becomes a mind occupation morning, noon and night and, after putting your head on the pillow, it sometimes continues into dreamland,” he laughed.

When asked if he now has his sights set on a second star, van der Westhuizen said: “I am not pushing myself or my team towards a second star, but we are pushing ourselves to higher and better. This is just what we do.”

Van der Westhuizen admits that 2016 was not an easy year. Continue reading

As at today, 13 February 2017, dam levels have dropped to 36,2,%, which is 1,2% down from a week ago. With the last 10% of a dam’s water not being useable, dam levels are effectively at 26,2%. The latest actual consumption is 825 million litres of collective use per day. The City of Cape Town has now lowered its water consumption target from 800 million litres to 700 million litres for collective water usage per day. Read more below:

If we are to reduce the consumption to 700 million litres of collective use per day, and at the current draw-down rate on dams, we could be looking at approximately 135 days of useable water left.

While the City thanks all of its great water-saving residents and businesses across the metro, water consumption must be lowered immediately. Cape Town is in a water-scarce region and at all times, but especially during this water crisis, we need to use water sparingly. Level 3b water restrictions, which limit the use of potable water for non-essential purposes, are in place.

‘The City has adjusted its target downwards from 800 million litres per day of collective use to 700 million litres per day of collective use. Continue reading

DHL Stormers injury report – 13/02/2017

DHL Stormers wing Leolin Zas has been ruled out of action for approximately a year with a broken leg.

Zas fractured both his Fibula and Tibia in the pre-season friendly against the Emirates Lions on Saturday, after coming on as a replacement having recently returned from an unrelated leg injury.

The other major casualty from the 57-40 victory against the Emirates Lions was centre Juan de Jongh who tore his medial collateral ligament and will consequently spend around 10-12 weeks on the sidelines.


This from tmz.com:

Al Jarreau, famed R&B and jazz singer died Sunday morning … according to his reps.

The 7-time Grammy winner had been hospitalized recently in Los Angeles. Amid his medical battle … he announced he would be retiring. He’d been touring almost non-stop for 50 years.

A message on his website says he passed away while in the hospital. The announcement doesn’t say what he died from — but Al had fought through respiratory and cardiac issues in recent years.

Just last week, Al’s son said his father was singing “Moonlighting” to one of his nurses.
