Global exposure for local tourism enterprises at World Travel Market​Statement by the City's Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille<p>For the past three years, local entrepreneurs have exhibited at the City’s exhibition stand at WTM Africa, the continent’s largest international travel industry event. <br><br>The City has been a proud supporter of the event since 2015 which enables local entrepreneurs to meet and engage with top tourism industry buyers and trade visitors from around the world. <br><br>This year, the City decided to do something different – offering buyers a first-hand experience of tourism products in the local areas. </p><p>In Langa, buyers will enjoy a walking tour of the Langa Quarter – 13 streets and a nucleus of 200 homes which have been transformed into restaurants, galleries, informal bars and craft stores. This will be followed by lunch with the locals. The Bo-Kaap experience includes a visit to the Auwal Masjid, the oldest mosque in South Africa, a stop at the oldest spice shop in the area, a visit to the Bo-Kaap museum and a Cape Malay cooking class at Faldela’s. I look forward to joining buyers on this tour on Thursday.</p><p>I am delighted that the travel industry royalty, potential buying customers with key decision-making power, will be afforded a first-hand experience of our local tourism gems. <br>The exposure that these local tourism businesses will receive is invaluable. Through this opportunity, they have a chance to meet potential distributors and buyers, identify strategic partners and position themselves globally. </p><p>This is in line with the City’s goals as contained in the Organisational Development and Transformation Plan to promote economic inclusion and position Cape Town as a forward-looking, globally competitive business destination. <br>In addition to the tours, local travel technology company Discoverikasi will deliver a talk at WTM Africa’s Travel Tech Theatre on the development of townships as destinations and the challenges faced by small businesses in the tourism industry.</p><p>WTM Africa, which is part of Africa Travel Week, is the continent’s largest international travel industry event. The show attracts approximately 500 international tourism industry buyers, 4 500 trade visitors, 220 members of the media and 600 exhibitors from across Africa and the world. <br><br>Show highlights this year include the launch of WTM Africa Festivals, billed as the ultimate social experience after the traditional working hours at WTM Africa; an Investors Forum focused on unlocking the tourism potential of Africa, and a Sports and  Events Tourism Exchange (SETE) conference.</p><p>‘Africa has long been identified as a continent bursting with potential within the tourism and travel sectors. WTM Africa 2018 is further recognition of this potential and in 2018, we’re ready to welcome more exhibitors from Africa than ever before. We have seen a significant increase in exhibitors and have as such, opted to expand the floor space used for stands at the Cape Town International Convention Centre for WTM Africa this year,’ said Chardonnay Marchesi, South Africa Portfolio Director for Reed Exhibitions’ Travel, Tourism and  Sports Portfolio – the organisers of WTM Africa.</p><p>WTM Africa takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 18to 20 April 2018. For more information about the show, please visit <a href="http://www.africa.wtm.com/" target="_blank">www.africa.wtm.com</a>. </p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-04-16T22:00:00Z1

The statistics also debunk the perception that our enforcement agencies do not act against taxi operators. We have very limited resources that are stretched to capacity given the demands on them. Furthermore, this does not even represent the enforcement done against other road users, who are by no means innocent, so it certainly provides some perspective on what exactly we are up against,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>The Traffic Service has also impounded 2 426 public transport vehicles since July 2017 – an average of 269 a month. Of these, 71% of drivers did not have an operating licence and the rest were operating in contravention of their operating licences. </p><p>‘Impoundment is a massive logistical exercise for us as the vehicle has to be driven to the pound by a traffic officer and the necessary documentation completed, which is time consuming. When one considers that the vehicle reclaim rate among public transport operators is 98%, it does make impoundment seem like a revolving door as the vehicle is back on the street virtually the same day or the next. We need to hurt errant operators where it hurts and that is permanent impoundment, but currently the law does not allow for this and the City simply enforces the law, we do not make it. We have been working with the Provincial Government to expedite the conclusion of the new Provincial Traffic legislation that would allow for more effective enforcement strategies, including impoundment of vehicles for traffic offences committed by public transport vehicles rather than issuing fines which are often evaded,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p>In spite of the enforcement efforts designed to create a safer city as outlined in the City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan, many motorists simply refuse to pay their outstanding fines. Currently, the top 100 public transport ‘warrant dodgers’ have amassed more than 2 800 outstanding warrants amounting to R3 339 360. </p><p>‘This is not surprising, but we are working hard to improve our warrant execution rates and holding motorists accountable for their actions. We have seen an increase in the number of people arrested and hopefully, in the medium- to longer term, we will start seeing this intervention having an impact on the behaviour of road users. In fact, we have already started seeing an increase in our traffic fine income, which is a sign that more people are paying their fines because they realise that there is a risk of being caught.</p><p>‘With this week’s national bus strike, many people will be reliant on the minibus-taxi industry to get to work and school. I call on operators to be mindful of their passengers’ safety, but also to have consideration for other road users. Nearly a third of the fines issued in the last quarter were for driver fitness. Taxi owners and associations need to reassess who they are allowing behind the wheel, considering the many lives those drivers have in their hands every day,’ said Alderman Smith. </p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-04-16T22:00:00Z1
MyCiTi buses grounded as from Wednesday morning​Commuters are reminded that nationwide strike action affecting the entire South African bus industry will take effect as from midnight tonight until further notice<p>​Commuters are reminded that nationwide strike action affecting the entire South African bus industry will take effect as from midnight tonight until further notice.</p><p>As a result, all of those making use of road-based transport should expect an increase in traffic and longer traveling times.</p><p>The strike action is as a result of dead-locked wage negotiations.</p><p>The Vehicle Operating Companies (VOCs) operating the MyCiTi service will institute a lock-out to ensure the safety of commuters and personnel for the duration of the strike. This, in effect, means that there will be no MyCiTi trunk or feeder services available as from Wednesday morning, for as long as the strike and lock-out continue.</p><p>Those commuters with monthly MyCiTi tickets must note that the monthly packages will be extended equal to the number of days the strike action lasts. The number of days will be determined once the strike has come to an end. Further details will be communicated in due course.</p><p>‘The strike will have serious knock-on effect on all public transport and road-based traffic as more than 72 000 commuters rely on the MyCiTi service on any given weekday. Given the challenges that Metrorail is experiencing we anticipate that the strike action will have a severe impact on Cape Town’s commuters in general,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development, Councillor Brett Herron.</p><p>The City anticipates a significant increase in the number of vehicles on the city’s road network because the bus commuters will either opt for minibus-taxis or use their own private vehicles to get to work and back. </p><p>‘Again, I call on private businesses in Cape Town to consider implementing flexible working hours or remote working arrangements for employees where possible and practical, for the duration of the strike action,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>Commuters are advised to visit the MyCiTi website on <a href="http://www.myciti.org.za/" target="_blank">www.myciti<strong></strong>.org.za</a> for regular updates; and to follow us on Twitter @MyCiTiBus; or to phone the Transport Information Centre on 0800 65 64 63 – the TIC is available 24/7.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2018-04-16T22:00:00Z1

The work is done in close collaboration with the Support Organization, which helped facilitate the liaison with the beneficiaries who agreed to have the murals on the walls.<br> <br>The purpose of the project is to add creative detail to the housing development that is currently being built in Manenberg, and to train community members from Manenberg and Gugulethu in creating mosaic art.  </p><p>The beneficiaries of the new housing project in Manenberg where the murals are located, were actively involved in the designs that are beautifying their neighbourhood. The housing beneficiaries worked closely with the artist that designed the murals.<br> <br>The artwork is the brainchild of the team who also created the mosaic art installed at the entrance and exit doors to the Cape Town Civic Centre in 2016.
