MyCiTi bus driver goes the extra mile to reunite resident with her purse and diamond wedding ringMyCiTi bus driver Siphelo Maqubela is Sea Point resident Sharon Russak’s ‘hero’ for finding and returning her purse which contained her jewellery <p>​</p><p>MyCiTi bus driver Siphelo Maqubela is Sea Point resident Sharon Russak’s ‘hero’ for finding and returning her purse which contained her jewellery including her diamond wedding ring and earrings, as well as cash, credit cards, her driver’s licence and her identity document.</p><p>Mrs Russak had accidentally dropped her purse when she got out of her car on Main Road in Sea Point at about 17:00 on Monday 11 June 2018.</p><span><p>Mr Maqubela, who was on duty driving the 108 route from Hout Bay along Sea Point Main Road to the CBD, noticed the purse lying on the ground next to a parked car.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/MyCiti%20bus%20driver.jpg" alt="" style="width:946px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p>He decided to stop the bus and pick up the purse.</p><p>‘I didn’t open the purse immediately. I continued with my route. When I eventually opened the purse and saw the jewellery, I actually became scared. I knew I had to return it to the owner.</p><p>‘I don’t have Facebook so I asked one of my passengers to try and find Sharon on Facebook using her name from the ID. The passenger then messaged her via Facebook to let her know that I found her purse and to give her my cell number,’ explained Mr Maqubela.</p><p>When Mrs Russak received the message, she had not realised that her purse was gone.<br>                                                                                                                      <br>‘After my appointment, I saw a Facebook message to please contact someone with regard to my purse. At first I thought maybe I was somehow pick-pocketed because how could a bus driver have my purse,’ she said.</p><p>Mrs Russak’s husband Steve then made contact with Mr Maqubela. They arranged to meet each other at the MyCiTi bus stop in Camps Bay, as Mr Maqubela was making his way back to Hout Bay. </p><p>‘He returned the full contents of my purse but most importantly my diamond wedding ring, another ring and valuable earrings, which are of sentimental value to me. Siphelo, thank you, thank you and bless you for your honesty. You are a credit to MyCiTi and you have restored my faith that there are good, honest people out there,’ said Mrs Russak.</p><p>On Wednesday 20 June 2018 Councillor Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development, handed over a certificate of gratitude to Mr Maqubela.</p><p>‘This certificate is a token of our appreciation for being an outstanding ambassador for MyCiTi. You have gone the extra mile and we commend you for your honesty, integrity and your efforts  in reuniting Mrs Russak with her belongings. You are an asset to our team,’ said Councillor Herron. </p><p>At the handover, Mrs Russak said her husband was initially upset when he heard that she had lost her purse because it contained her wedding ring. </p><p>Mr Maqubela jokingly replied: ‘Yes, I saved the marriage.’</p><p>The couple, who have been married for 23 years, laughed.</p><p>Mr Maqubela, father of two children, said he appreciated the certificate.</p><p>‘I like to help people. I always ensure that I return people’s belongings to them and that is what we are taught here at MyCiTi. I love my job because I love driving. Our passengers need to believe in MyCiTi. They need to know they can trust us,’ said Mr Maqubela.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p><p> </p>2018-06-21T22:00:00Z1
City’s action committee addresses social ills in Delft SouthDedicated and experienced professionals from social development and policing backgrounds form part of the Focus Table including Law Enforcement staff<p>​‘This Focus Table is not an advisory committee. All members take responsibility for various tasks, and interventions are supported by 15 fieldworkers,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith. </p><p>The fieldworkers are employed by the City’s Social Development and Early Childhood Development Department (SDECD) through the Expanded Public Works Programme.</p><p>‘The Focus Table forms part of various interventions by the City to address crime in vulnerable areas. They meet on a fortnightly basis and deal with individual cases of harm and anti-social behaviour. Taking into account the psycho-social and economic context of each case, they decide upon appropriate remedial intervention. Going the enforcement route is regarded as a last resort,’ explained Alderman Smith.</p><p>Dedicated and experienced professionals from social development and policing backgrounds form part of the Focus Table including Law Enforcement staff, school resource officers, neighbourhood safety officers, representatives from the City’s SDECD, representatives from the Western Cape Department of Social Development and Professor John Cartwright.</p><p>Some of the recommended interventions to date include:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Strengthening Families Programme</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Young Learner’s programme </div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Direct interventions with families and referrals </div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Support for identity documents, passports and social grant applications </div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Medication collection</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Pre-teens at risk intervention </div></li></ul><p>At the official launch of the Focus Table earlier this week, departments, organisations and beneficiaries of programmes reflected on the positive impact that the NST and Focus Table have had on crime prevention and reduction, neighbourhood safety and dealing with social problems in Delft.</p><p>Stakeholders made recommendations, such as interventions for younger children and skills training for young people, and all these will be reviewed by the Focus Table. Professor Cartwright serves as the coordinator of the Focus Table and works closely with the NST in Delft.</p><p>‘The work of the NST is aimed at building an effective model of broad-based neighbourhood safety that can be rolled out to other areas of the City that are suffering from social disruption, violence and urban decay. The Focus Table is an excellent way of mobilising different kinds of knowledge in order to resolve serious issues in the daily lives of a community,’ said Professor Cartwright. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2018-06-20T22:00:00Z1
