STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER FOR HUMAN SETTLEMENTS, COUNCILLOR BENEDICTA VAN MINNEN
The City of Cape Town will continue to remove illegally erected structures in parts of Masiphumelele which are protected by court interdicts. It is vital to safeguard the piece of land which has been earmarked for the Masiphumelele housing project and also the uninhabitable area known as the wetlands. Read more below:
We urge the community to work with us as the continual attempted invasions are threatening the housing development plans for erf 5131.
The beneficiaries of this housing development have been identified in line with the City’s beneficiary selection process and through a public participation process that has taken place over many years. It would not be fair, at this late stage of the development and beneficiary selection process, if the land were to be lost due to illegal occupation. Continue reading

- SA one of three tied on 69 points at top of Series log
Seabelo Senatla leading the try scoring chase
The Springbok Sevens finished fourth at the HSBC Sydney Sevens tournament following their 26-12 defeat in the play-off for third place against Fiji on Sunday morning (SA time). The South Africans are one of three countries tied with 69 points on top of the standings after four rounds of HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series action.
Fiji have the best point average of the trio, and are therefore first on the log, followed by South Arica and Sydney winners New Zealand. The Kiwis defeated hosts Australia 27-24 in the Cup final.
The Fijians led 21-0 at halftime but the Springbok Sevens hit back with tries by Dylan Sage and Sandile Ngcobo to cut the deficit to 21-12 with less than two minutes to play. Rosko Speckman was then yellow carded and then Fiji added a fourth try to clinch the game. Continue reading
A 19-year-old woman’s reunification with her family was the cherry on top of a campaign this festive season that saw hundreds of people relocated off the streets. Read more below:

The festive season generally sees an increase in people migrating to the streets whether for potential economic gain or because of family and other social reasons. Continue reading
The City of Cape Town is eradicating the backlog which exists with title deed transfers linked to older housing projects at a rapid pace. More than half of the approximately 25 000 historic title deeds which were identified for transfer in 2012 have been completed. The City will now be intensifying its efforts to address the remaining 10 000 transfers. Read more below:
These transfers pertain to older housing projects and what makes this process so difficult is that each case has to be addressed individually. It could also involve a combination of factors that have prevented beneficiaries from receiving title deeds, such as unsigned sale agreements or untraceable beneficiaries.
‘Our efforts to finalise the transfer of historic title deeds are, of course, over and above the transfer of deeds pertaining to recent or current housing projects. Continue reading
