Cape Town would like to rectify a recent article that appeared on the Kickoff website suggesting that Anssi Jaakkola was set to leave the club at the end of the current Absa Premiership season.

Jaakkola has been a rock in the goals for the Urban Warriors in the past three seasons, earning himself nominations for the Absa Premiership Goalkeeper of the Season in two consecutive years, while staking his claim for yet another nomination this season after producing many stellar performances between the posts. The Finnish shot stopper played an instrumental role in Ajax Cape Town’s unbelievable achievement of reaching the 2015 Nedbank Cup final as well as winning the MTN8 trophy in spectacular fashion.

The City of Cape Town hopes to complete the construction of 1 005 serviced sites for its Gugulethu/Nyanga Infill Housing Project soon, which will make way for the construction of subsidised housing units as part of the City’s commitment to enabling redress. Read more below:

The Gugulethu/Nyanga housing project comprises the development of two large vacant sites along Govan Mbeki (Lansdowne) Road. The installation of civil engineering services is expected to be completed by mid-May 2016.

My Citi Bus Stations vandalised DuNoon Uzasa Phoenix

My Citi Bus Stations vandalised DuNoon Uzasa Phoenix

STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER: TRANSPORT FOR CAPE TOWN, COUNCILLOR BRETT HERRON

The City of Cape Town is extremely concerned about the devastating consequences that the violent protests and vandalism of MyCiTi stations has on the law-abiding residents of Dunoon.

Over the past six weeks, at least three of the MyCiTi stations along Potsdam Road had to be closed for several days, denying MyCiTi commuters from Dunoon access to essential public transport services to get to work to provide for their families. Furthermore, the Phoenix station on Omuramba Road has been closed since 15 March 2016.

I have extracted commuter statistics for the MyCiTi stations at Usasaza, Dunoon, Killarney and Phoenix to determine how many of our residents have been affected. Today I can confirm that over 3 000 commuters from Dunoon and the surrounding areas have been adversely affected on a daily basis by the thuggish behaviour of a small group of troublemakers who have no regard for the law.

The Emirates Lions proved far too strong for a gallant Southern Kings side in their Vodacom Super Rugby match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday evening, winning by 45-10 as the Highveld-side moved within a point of leaders DHL Stormers on the Africa conference standings.

In Cape Town, the DHL Stormers survived a second half onslaught from the visiting Reds to clinch a 40-22 home win in the early Saturday afternoon fixture. The Cape side received a blow before kick-off when captain, Frans Malherbe, had to withdraw because of illness. His place in the front row was taken by Vincent Koch, while Springbok midfielder Damian de Allende took over the captaincy.

Meanwhile on Friday, the Rebels put in a strong second half performance to beat the Toyota Cheetahs 36-14 in Melbourne. They scored 26 unanswered points in the second half to clinch a bonus point win, which saw them take pole position on the Australian conference ladder.

In the first match played on Friday morning, rookie flyhalf Garth April succeeded with all five kicks at goal to guide the Cell C Sharks to a hard fought 15-14 win over a 14-man Highlanders at the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin. The win enabled the Cell C Sharks to snap a winless streak of four matches. Continue reading

Finally got your fitness routine down? Great! Now is the time to improve your beauty routine post-workout.

I must admit that I haven’t been going to gym as often as I normally do, it seems the colder days have made me quite lazy. Summer bodies are however made in winter, so I will try and get back into the swing and keep my gym routine somewhat still in tune.

Below are some beauty products I think are absolute essentials to have in your gym bag – let us know what your favourites are!!!

  1. Something cute to put your amazing beauty products in of course.
  2. The perfect little bottles to fill up with your best shampoos, conditioner, hand sanitizers, etc. Not all products come in travel sizes and you shouldn’t compromise your routine due to the fact that the bottles are too big and heavy. Continue reading

The City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services, Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg, took to the streets today to deliver the first of 5 000 home-composting containers that the City is providing free of charge to interested residents. The residents who the councillor visited were excited at the prospects for their gardens.

Councillor Sonnenberg celebrated Earth Day today, 22 April 2016, by delivering home-composting units to homeowners who successfully applied for them earlier this month.

The first delivery of the day was made to Mrs Agnes Mayi, a Khayelitsha resident and grandmother of two young orphans. Agnes is unemployed and feeds her grandchildren with vegetables that she grows in her garden, so quality compost is crucial to create a nutrient-rich ground in which they can grow. The peels and offcuts from the mielies, potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, cabbage and spinach that she plants provide the same scraps that go back into the compost to grow more vegetables. Up until now, she has been using a bucket but has struggled with leaks and cracks. Continue reading
