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

The City of Cape Town has started piloting the use of card payment facilities at its motor vehicle registration office in the Cape Town Civic Centre. On the first day of the pilot, which kicked off on Monday 27 June 2016, more than 100 credit and debit card transactions were processed. The City hopes to roll out this service to other City customer centres across the metro. Read more below:

The use of card payment facilities will be tested for approximately one week at the motor vehicle registration (MVR) office at the Cape Town Civic Centre before the City expands this service to other MVR facilities across Cape Town. This service will be rolled out next to the MVR office in the Promenade Mall in Mitchells Plain which will be followed by weekly roll-outs to the MVR offices in Milnerton, Khayelitsha, Plumstead and other MVR offices across the metro.

The city-wide roll out to MVR offices is expected to take approximately two months. The expansion of card payment facilities for the payment of rates and tariff accounts, building plan and land use applications and traffic fines will take a bit longer as system upgrades are required.

Unfortunately, various media reports over the weekend, yesterday and today, have cast doubt over the manner in which Ajax Cape Town conducts its business with regards to the transfer of its players.

It would come as no surprise, that third parties, would have resorted to using the media as a tool to achieve their goals at the detriment of the various role players involved in this transfer, namely the Chairman of Orlando Pirates Dr Irvin Khoza and Ajax CEO Ari Efstathiou, the persons directly associated with the transfer of the two players.

It is normal practice that negotiations regarding the transfer of a player takes place between the buying and selling club prior to the player having been made aware of any possible transfer. When an agreement has been reached between the two clubs, the selling club will brief the player/agent of the status quo regarding the potential transfer. Once this has been done, the selling club will then give permission to the buying club to talk to the player to conclude personal terms and contract with the new club. The contract between the two clubs is always subject to the player having agreed terms with the new club (this was stated in both the Orlando Pirates and Ajax Cape Town press releases).

Boland, Free State and the Valke on Tuesday continued their winning ways at the Learners with Special Education Needs (LSEN) Week at the Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool (Affies) in Pretoria to remain the only unbeaten teams in the tournament.

SNEAKER TRENDS THIS WINTER

While we certainly enjoy checking out the trends on the runways, those with a shoe fetish will be happy to know that the athleisure look is here to stay.

Says Gordon Gassert, Product Developer at Olympic International and Jordan & Co: “The rise of athleisure has been part of an entire movement – from spinning studios to a distinct focus on eating well, fast food companies introducing healthier menus, to an increase in mountain bikers around the country. Although a healthier lifestyle has many advantages, there is also some vanity involved. Most people want to look their best when working out, whether it’s at the gym or during a hike on Table Mountain.”

Athleisure is undoubtedly popular, and has become a buzzword tossed around with increasing frequency. Gassert continues: “The brands that have performed the best in this category are the ones that sell lifestyles. It makes sense, given the movement is not about trends. Athleisure is about permanence and endurance – your body is one of the few constants in your life and athleisure presents a version of ourselves we aspire to be – our best selves.” Continue reading

This from dailymaverick.co.za:

by Sébastien BLANC The US Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Texas law restricting access to abortion, handing a major victory to the “pro-choice” camp in the country’s most important ruling on the divisive issue in a generation.

Crowds of passionate activists from both sides of the debate shed tears of joy and dismay outside the court over the closely-watched decision, which has far-reaching implications for millions of women across the United States.

The black-robed justices ruled by 5-3 to strike down the Texas measures which activists say have forced more than half of abortion clinics to close in the second most-populous US state, with the conservative-leaning Anthony Kennedy siding with his four liberal colleagues on the bench.

President Barack Obama joined civil rights activists and women’s health providers in hailing a milestone for abortion rights, with the issue now set to be thrust center stage in the White House race.

“Every woman has a constitutional right to make her own reproductive choices. I’m pleased to see the Supreme Court reaffirm that fact today,” Obama tweeted.

Outside the court, pro-choice activists breathed a collective sigh of relief.

“I’m all about life and love and babies,” said Nita Amar, a 63-year-old labor and delivery nurse. “But if women lose access to abortion rights, they’re going to go back to the alleys and use coat hangers again.”
