The City of Cape Town’s Problem Building Unit has spent just shy of R158 000 in the last year to secure, clean and erect problem building sign boards at 42 properties across the city.
Section 7 of the Problem Building By-law allows the unit to repair, renovate, repaint, alter, close, demolish and remove all refuse or secure any problem building, at the cost of the owner, should the owner fail to comply with instructions to do so themselves within a specific period.
The Unit has been implementing this section of the by-law since the budget became available to do so in mid-2015. It is also finalising plans for its first demolition of a private property in Somerset West that has been on the Problem Building list for a number of years. Continue reading

Sandwich Baron, South Africa’s fastest growing sandwich franchise, is pleased to announce the finalists of its ‘Varsity Eat Off’ competition following round robin events at three Johannesburg universities in June.
At each of the three university campuses five students battled it out to see who could eat the most foot-long sandwich subs within 20 minutes. Three very hungry under-graduates emerged as winners: Philani Mlatshwayo (University of Johannesburg, eating three chicken mayo foot longs); Nkuleleko Diji (Wits University, also eating three); and Maui Pardise (AFDA, eating almost four foot longs). The three finalists will next compete against one another in July when the varsities reopen – and by which time they will have built up an appetite after the extravagances of their foot-long feast – where the final winner will be crowned the ultimate Sandwich “BARON”. In recognition of this competitive spirit, the winner will receive a free sub every week for one year. Continue reading

The RMI notes with concern the state of non-roadworthy and unlicensed heavy vehicles in operation on South Africa’s roads, highlighted by a recent report of four trucks and trailers being impounded in Mpumalanga.
The vehicles were taken off the road following an inspection by traffic authorities who found the rigs to be non-roadworthy and operating with fraudulent documentation, including invalid licenses.
The RMI’s concern is further exacerbated by the fact that RTMC data shows that that there have been 131 major crashes involving trucks in which 791 people have been killed and 726 injured between January, 2013 and May, 2016. The fatal crashes have taken place in KZN, Gauteng, the Free State, Mpumalanga and the Eastern Cape.
