From suspects found with guns and long knives, to others dicing their way into custody, it’s been another busy week for the City’s enforcement agencies who netted 167 suspects. Read more below:

 

The City of Cape Town’s Metro Police Department arrested 63 suspects in the last week: 23 for drunk driving and 40 others for possession of drugs, dangerous weapons and stolen property.

In Manenberg yesterday morning, 13 August 2017, officers reacted to a ShotSpotter alert and noted a suspect running away when he saw them. They caught up with the suspect and found a 40-calibre Beretta pistol and 11 rounds of ammunition in his possession.

In Khayelitsha, a tip-off from the public led to the arrest of a 19-year-old suspect just before 08:00 on Saturday 12 August 2017 for possession of dagga. Officers recovered 26 packets, 44 parcels and a refuse bag, all filled with dagga.

‘This is the second significant dagga bust in Khayelitsha in the last two weeks. At the end of July, officers received another tip-off that led them to toilets in Town Two and a stash of dagga with an estimated street value of R30 000. I applaud those members of the public who are taking a stand against crime and illicit dealings in their communities,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.

The Strand Street Concourse was officially opened for pedestrians to use as a thoroughfare today, 14 August 2017. Built as an underground pedestrian walkway in the early 1970s, the concourse beneath Strand and Adderley Streets underwent a recent major refit. Read more below:

The Strand Street Concourse, owned by the City of Cape Town, is part of a broader network of underground walkways that serves as a critical pedestrian link between the Cape Town Station precinct and the St George’s Street, Woolworths, Old Mutual and the Golden Acre shopping malls.

The major construction work of the 1 752 m² area has now been completed. This forms part of an overall revitalisation project for the concourse.

‘The concourse allows for protected pedestrian movement across the busy Strand and Adderley Streets, with a number of exit points into the heart of the central business district. It is an integral thoroughfare to the CBD that allows pedestrians to move safely and avoid vehicular traffic. They are able to move quickly without having to take traffic lights into account to get across the busy intersection. In addition, the concourse offers protection from inclement weather conditions,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Assets and Facilities Management, Councillor Stuart Diamond.

Residents of Bishop Lavis welcomed the opportunity to engage with the City’s representatives at the latest Organisational Development and Transformation Plan (ODTP) roadshow held yesterday, 10 August 2017. More than 200 residents made their way to the Bishop Lavis Civic Centre to access the City’s services close to home. 

 

The City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Area Central, Councillor Siyabulela Mamkeli, presented the ODTP to residents in Bishop Lavis and explained what it meant for them in terms of enhanced service delivery. Residents were also able to engage with the City’s representatives at the service delivery expo held yesterday.

Councillor Mamkeli was clear that, in line with the ODTP, it is time for government to go out to the people and not vice versa. He explained that the time has come for communities to hold their public representatives accountable for service delivery.

Housing was high up on the list of queries raised by residents at the expo yesterday. A large number of residents made use of the opportunity to ask about housing opportunities and add their details to the housing database. A number of residents also engaged with Metro Police in terms of how and where to report crime.

“Innovatively executed scents intuitively chosen to complement the flavours and aromas of the food make our Sensory Dinners an encompassing experience,” says Chef Jocelyn Myers Adams.

Without wanting to give too much away, she hints at the seasonal scent of lemon and dried orange peel, the aroma of burnt coffee and the warmness of cumin and coriander.

“Of course, the scents and fragrances are carefully selected to enhance the flavour of the food. But, it is also much about how these are delivered for an explosive effect,” she says.

The current menu has a decidedly autumn feel with the richness and warmness of black truffle, duck and sweet potato mousse in the cast of dishes. A reflection of Myers-Adam’s focus on locally sourced products and indigenous flavours, foraged num nums are used in a coulis to add an authentic Western Cape twist to the third course comprising crisp duck breast, sweet potato mousse, flash fried cabbage and orange powder.

The entry of the Toyota Cheetahs and Southern Kings into the Guinness PRO14 would break the mould for world rugby, the South African launch was told in Cape Town on Friday.

The two former Vodacom Super Rugby teams will kick off in the tournament next month with 12 clubs from Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Italy in a radical departure for global rugby.

“This is a momentous day for rugby – as significant as the launch of the Super 12 tournament, 21 years ago,” said Jurie Roux, SA Rugby CEO.

“We are breaking new ground with a number of global firsts: this is the first cross-hemisphere domestic club competition; the first time we will have played summer rugby in South Africa and the first experiment in aligning a season in the south with that of the north.

“Our eyes are on the bigger picture, which is new horizons and new opportunities for South African rugby and our PRO14 partners. I’d like to thank Martin Anayi [PRO14 CEO] and the board of PRO14 Rugby as well as the national unions of Wales, Ireland, Scotland and Italy for opening the door at short notice and welcoming us through it.

“We look forward to this adventure and building something special.”

Martin Anayi, said: “It’s a momentous day for us to arrive in South Africa and get a sense of the excitement around the introduction of the Toyota Cheetahs and Southern Kings into the Guinness PRO14.

“The work we have achieved to expand our Championship is a great credit to SA Rugby, the Toyota Cheetahs and the Southern Kings. We have already seen the incredible interest from across Italy, Ireland, Scotland and Wales after our announcement about expansion and it’s great to see that replicated here in South Africa.

“This is a ground-breaking feat and a true first in world rugby as we will see north versus south compete on a regular basis in the Guinness PRO14. I would like to thank Jurie Roux and his team at SA Rugby for the hospitality they have shown us and wish our new teams the very best of luck in the coming season.

“Rugby supporters in South Africa and across our existing nations are in for a real treat this season and we can’t wait for the Championship to kick what will be an historic campaign.”

On Friday 11 August, The Baxter Theatre Centre’s production of The Fall was awarded the Fringe First at this year’s Scotsman Awards. Presented weekly and designed to encourage performers to bring new work to Edinburgh in the spirit of adventure and experiment, the Scotsman Fringe First Awards celebrate the best new writing on the Fringe.

The Fall is a vital and frank collaborative piece of workshop theatre devised by the original cast that took South Africa by storm when it premiered. Seven University of Cape Town Drama graduates share their experiences during the #RhodesMustFall, #FeesMustFall and subsequent student movements’ demonstrations in 2015 and 2016.

The highly acclaimed play is facilitated by Clare Stopford, curated by Ameera Conrad and Thando Mangcu, two members of the ensemble and the dynamic cast comprises Conrad, Mangcu, Oarabile Ditsele, Zandlie Madliwa, Sizwesandile Mnisi, Sihle Mnqwazana and Cleo Raatus.

On introducing the company and presenting the award Joyce McMillan, Scotsman’s chief theatre critic said about the Fall, “What makes this show completely exceptional – not just its energy, not just the live footage that we see of this very recent, and indeed, continuing revolution in South African higher education, and not just the fantastic musical and movement content, which is just completely mind-blowing, beautiful – but also the density and the seriousness of the political arguments which these young people are being forced to address as such an early age.” Continue reading
