City warns of the lingering after-effects of drinking<span><figure class="figure-credits right"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/WhatsApp%20Image%202017-07-14%20at%2009.25.53.jpeg" style="width:1364px;" /><figcaption> <p>  © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> <p>City of Cape Town traffic officers netted eight motorists for drunk driving in Muizenberg, Fish Hoek and Simon’s Town early yesterday morning, 23 July 2017.</p><p>The arrests formed part of the random breath testing project currently under way. One of those arrested had a reading of 0,64 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood, which is nearly three times the legal limit.</p><p>‘I need to impress upon members of the public that the effects of the night before linger far longer than many might imagine. If you’ve had a hard night of drinking, rather steer clear of driving for a while longer to avoid the situation that these motorists were caught in. In the morning, some drivers are still affected by the significant alcohol consumed the night before. It is also worth noting that roadblocks are no longer middle-of-the-night occurrences, but happen around the clock and you can be caught at any time. So, if you’ve been drinking, don’t drive for at least 12 to 24 hours afterwards,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><span><figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/WhatsApp%20Image%202017-07-22%20at%2019.20.44.jpeg" style="width:1023px;" /><figcaption> <p>   © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure></span></span><p>In addition to the eight arrests in the south peninsula, traffic officers arrested 101 motorists at five roadblocks over the weekend in Somerset West, Maitland, Woodstock, Kuils River and Langa.</p><p>Various operations focusing on illegal drag-racing in the Bellville area saw seven arrests for drunk driving and six for reckless and negligent driving. In the southern peninsula, 12 motorists were arrested for outstanding warrants, 68 warrants were served, and 16 motorists were released on a warning. </p><p>During a taxi operation in Bellville, officers impounded four vehicles and issued just over 200 fines for various transgressions. They also arrested a taxi driver for drunk driving.</p><p>Metro Police arrested 20 drunk drivers during their weekend operations, but the biggest success came in Hanover Park on Sunday, 23 July 2017 when the Gang and Drug Task Team spotted a suspect who started running as soon as he saw the officers. They gave chase and, during the pursuit, the suspect threw something over a wall. They caught the suspect and when they went back to the spot where he disposed of the items he had in his possession, officers found nine .45 mm rounds of ammunition and arrested the 18-year-old. </p><p><span>​ </span>Officers then received a tip-off from the public that led them to a house in the area. A search of a bungalow in the backyard revealed a .38 Taurus revolver, 32 x .38 special rounds of ammunition, and 10 rounds of shotgun ammunition. The officers also noticed that the soil in the yard had been disturbed and started digging. They found 200 dagga ‘stoppe’, 10 rounds of shotgun ammunition, nine .45 mm rounds of ammunition, 13 x  7.62 rounds of ammunition, 14 x  306 mm rounds of ammunition, two 9 mm pistol magazines, two rifle magazines, and 59 x .223 rifle rounds. A 42-year-old suspect was arrested for being in possession of unlicensed firearm, ammunition and drugs.</p><p>‘Metro Police have confiscated three firearms, a stash of ammunition, and various quantities of drugs in the last week. In many instances, the successes were the result of tip-offs from the community. We appeal to the public to continue blowing the whistle on criminal activities in their areas because often they know what is going on and who the culprits are and can provide valuable intelligence to aid our crime-fighting efforts. We also have our Informant Reward System for information that leads to arrests or the recovery of stolen goods or contraband, so there is some incentive for the public too,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p>In the last 12 months, 18 payments totalling just over R10 000 were made for information that led to the recovery of stolen vehicles, a firearm, ammunition, various quantities of drugs, and illegally fished rock lobster.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p><p> </p><span><span></span><p> </p>​​</span>2017-07-23T22:00:00Z1
City extends condolences to family and friends of jazz maestro, Errol Dyers<p>​The City of Cape Town is saddened by the loss of one of our city’s greatest jazz legends, Errol Dyers, who passed away this weekend.</p><p>Dyers was indeed a guitar maestro, who brought a unique Cape Town sound to jazz music, with this distinct talent earning him the status of being one of the country’s most renowned musicians. </p><p>His songs ‘Dindela’ and ‘Sugar Shake’, like many others, will forever be remembered as legendary contributions by Dyers, one of the pioneers of Cape jazz. </p><p>This is a huge loss for Cape Town and jazz music, but we must ensure that we keep his legacy alive for years to come through the timeless music he made.</p><p>We extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Virginia, his family and friends, and the music fraternity. They are all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.</p><p><br><strong>End </strong></p>2017-07-23T22:00:00Z1
Drought crisis: rain does not mean we can go back to normal <p>​Our latest consumption levels are extremely worrying as many people believe that they can go back to normal behaviour due to recent rains. These recent rains are not nearly enough as we are still in a drought crisis. The drought conditions are the New Normal for Cape Town as a water-scarce region. To adapt to the New Normal, we have to change our behaviour drastically to save water while we still have water to be saved. </p><p>Too many people are not listening to the City’s warnings and appeals to reduce their consumption. The rainfall has made a very small impact on our dam levels. The fact that we are still 143 million litres over our 500 million litre target per day means that those who are not reducing consumption are playing with everyone’s future in Cape Town. </p><p>The lower than average rainfall, coupled with unacceptably high consumption, will hurt us all as there are still far too many stubborn people who are not doing enough to save water so that we can build up of reserves for a terribly harsh 2017/18 summer.</p><p>Dam storage levels are at 27,4%, but useable water is only at about 17,4% which is very low for this time of the year. This time last year dam storage levels were at 47,6%, with useable water at this time of year standing at 37,6%.</p><p>We are in a dire situation and Level 4b water restrictions require all water users to use less than 87 litres of water per person per day in total, irrespective of whether they are at home, work or elsewhere.</p><p>‘Water users who are not adhering to the restrictions are playing with our collective future. We must save water while we still have it. We simply must do more to use water more sparingly. We are reminding those households who fail to reduce consumption that the start of the process that could restrict supply is firmly under way,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services; and Energy, Councillor Xanthea Limberg.</p><p>For information on how to adhere to the less than 87-litre usage requirement, residents should please visit the water restrictions page on the City’s website: <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater">www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater</a> and utilise our new water calculator: <a href="http://bit.ly/ThinkWaterCalculatorCT">http://bit.ly/ThinkWaterCalculatorCT</a></p><p>Residents can contact the City via email to <a href="mailto:water@capetown.gov.za">water@capetown.gov.za</a> for queries or to report contraventions of the water restrictions (evidence should be provided to assist the City’s enforcement efforts), or they can send an SMS to 31373.</p><p>Water supplied by the City remains safe to drink and is tested in accordance with the most rigorous safety standards.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2017-07-23T22:00:00Z1
City welcomes peace deal reached by two groups of Imizamo Yethu community leaders <p>​Yesterday, 22 July 2017, two groups of community leaders in Imizamo Yethu met to negotiate a peace deal to restore calm in the area so that the City of Cape Town’s super-blocking project could proceed.<br> <br>The two groups include a small group of community leaders who were against the super-blocking and the majority of the leaders who are in support of the project and who have been working with the City to ensure that the project can progress. <br> <br>The two groups of leaders met along with City political leaders, City officials, and senior members of the South African Police Service at the Hout Bay Fire Station. <br> <br>The two community leader groups came to an agreement in which the one group was updated about the super-blocking project and they agreed to engage the community at large to put an end to the violence so that the project can continue.<br> <br>A way forward was agreed to where three meetings will take place with the broader community today, 23 July 2017 on three sites: the Dontse Yakhe site, the Disa site and the sports field in Imizamo Yethu.<br> <br>The violence which flared up again this past week caused a delay in the super-blocking project, with contractors being pulled off site as their lives and equipment were in danger. The houses of three community leaders who are working with the City were also burnt down during the violent protests this past week.<br> <br>The group of leaders who were previously opposed to the super-blocking process have agreed to engage with the City and a series of engagements has been planned to ensure that they are updated regularly on the project’s progress as we have been doing with the community leaders who have always been on board and working with the City.<br> <br>The community leaders further agreed that the City’s work on the super-blocking must continue tomorrow, 24 July 2017.</p><p>The City welcomes the peace deal that was reached between the two groups of community leaders. We are hopeful that the peace will hold so that we can continue with the project. <br> <br>The City reiterates its commitment to working with all leaders and residents to ensure that we make progress possible together and provide the services the residents need through the super-blocking project.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2017-07-22T22:00:00Z1
