5FM welcomes new talent to it’s on air line-up this month. Listeners have already settled into the small line-up shifts announced last month. Now the station who lives loud injects new blood to their on-air offering. This is in keeping with 5FM’s higher purpose of bringing youthful South Africans together through the power of music.
Some new 5FM family members have started on the station and includes newsreader Sibs Matiyela, Das Kapital and Lindo Mbuso. You can find newsreader Sibs on Hamman Time with Nick Hamman (Mon-Fri, 08:00 – 10:00) and The Thando Thabooty Show with Thando Thabethe and Justine Toerien (Mon-Fri, 10:00 – 13:00). On joining the station, Sibs says, “To wake up every morning and be able to do what I love is enough of a blessing. But to have an opportunity to do such a thing on 5FM is mind blowing.”
Das Kapital, who was a regular feature on The 5th Element, has his own show, In Das we Trust, on Sundays, 22:00 – 01:00. Das, real name Kyle Brinkmann, says he has been listening to the station since he was a kid. “I’ve been listening to 5FM ever since I could remember. Having my own show on the station now is surreal. The support is already streaming in, and I’m certain we’re about to have a lot of fun together on In Das We Trust.”
Paarl Boys High cement top spot
Paarl Boys High confirmed their number one position on the SA Schools rankings after an impressive win against Grey College on Saturday.
The hosts were outstanding at the breakdown but it was their defence which halted the impressive Grey backs that formed the corner stone of their victory.
The hosts were first on the scoreboard through fullback and man of the match, Gianni Lombard, after Grey were trapped for going off their feet. He extended their lead to 6-0 midway through the first half slotting his second penalty.
Grey flyhalf, Christopher Schreuder, succeeded with a penalty of his own minutes later to get the visitors on the score board. Continue reading

By the end of May 2016, the planning department of Transport for Cape Town (TCT) would have spent more than 90% of our budget intended for the maintenance and cleaning of stormwater infrastructure, channels, canals and rivers.
Apart from the proactive maintenance and planned cleaning undertaken by TCT’s eight district offices, the personnel from TCT’s 20 local road depots across the eight areas also do reactive maintenance as and when residents report blockages to the City through the C3 fault reporting notification system.

On Thursday afternoon, 19 May at around 15h00 Western Cape Government Health Emergency Medical Services (EMS) was contacted by the captain of a fishing vessel 300 nautical miles off our Western Coastline experiencing a cardiac event.
The 43 year old captain, a US Citizen from the fishing vessel, Iron Maiden informed EMS of chest pains and numbness in his fingers. He indicated his intention to continue to Saldanha Bay for medical attention, but out of concern for his safety we alerted the 22nd squadron from Ysterplaat Airforce Base as well as the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) to please assist and intervene.
On Saturday morning at 7h00 EMS personnel alongside an MRCC crew boarded a 22ndsquadron helicopter and proceded to collect the captain 60 nautical miles from Saldanha Bay.
At 10h34 the captain was safely transferred by EMS ambulance from Ysterplaat Airforce Base to Christiaan Barnard Hospital in a critical but stable condition.

An unmarked Chlorine gas cylinder found on the corner of Bay and Fritz Sonnenberg roads, opposite the City Park building is believed to be responsible for the incident.
chlorine gas exposure can result in symptoms of acute airway obstruction including wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and dyspnea.
The Vodacom Bulls are back from a difficult Australian trip and will be determined to lift their game at Loftus Versfeld and avoid a record fifth straight loss against their fierce southern rivals, the DHL Stormers, when the sides meet in the late Saturday Vodacom Super Rugby fixture. Kick-off is at 19h20.
The men from Pretoria returned home from their Australian trip with only one win from three matches. The Capetonians, on the other hand, travel to the North on the back of a fortuitous draw against the Sunwolves in Singapore last weekend, where a last-gasp converted try salvaged a 17-17 result in the Far East. Another bruising local derby is expected in Pretoria.
Earlier, the Emirates Lions will be looking to consolidate their position at the top of the South African group standings. However, in order to do that they will have to overcome a stiff challenge from Argentine Jaguares.

This from news24.com:
Komatipoort – Despite evidence suggesting otherwise, an Mpumalanga local municipality has denied barring EFF leader Julius Malema from using municipal stadiums to address his supporters.
The decision comes barely days after leaders of political parties pledged to abide by the provisions of the South African Electoral Code not to sabotage other parties during election campaigns.
Nkomazi municipality spokesperson Cyril Ripinga confirmed that the municipality had taken a decision that no activities would be allowed to take place in all the local stadia, as the pitches had been damaged during a recent soccer tournament.

Following their convincing victory against the EP Kings at City Park, coach John Dobson has been able to maintain some valuable continuity for the match which kicks off at 19h00 at Mbombela Stadium on Friday.
With Grant Hermanus sidelined due to a hip-pointer injury Devon Williams moves to fullback, and his place on the wing is taken by the returning Khanyo Ngcukana, while in midfield Tim Whitehead slots in at outside centre.
The only change in the forward pack sees JD Schickerling make his first appearance of the campaign, with Meyer Swanepoel moving to the replacements bench.
Dobson said that while it is encouraging to have some settled combinations, his team know they are in for a tough examination up in Nelspruit. Continue reading
