Post Office strike causes delay in delivery of municipal accountsThe City of Cape Town is expecting delays in the delivery of its municipal invoices and motor vehicle licence disc renewals.<p>​The South African Post Office (SAPO) has informed the City of Cape Town about possible delays in the postal delivery of municipal accounts. Until recently, the City was not affected by the ongoing postal worker’s strike.</p><p>Unfortunately, the protracted SAPO strike will be affecting the delivery of some municipal invoices for the month of July 2018 and may also affect the delivery of motor vehicle licence discs which have been applied for online over the past two weeks.</p><p>The City would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of the ongoing strike. When received, the invoice will still reflect the due date but interest charges will not be levied for any late receipt of payment as a result of the delays caused by the strike.</p><p>In the interim, if customers have already registered on the City’s e-services portal, they will be able to access their information by logging in to their online account.</p><p>Residents with valid cell phone numbers on the City’s billing system should receive an SMS reflecting the amount due for payment. Another option is for ratepayers to pay using the previous month’s invoice and to pay a similar but higher amount (taking the increased tariffs into consideration) as per the previous invoice. Alternatively, ratepayers can contact the City’s Call Center on <a><em>086 010 3089</em></a> to determine the amount due.</p><p>Customers who have recently renewed their motor vehicle licences online may also experience a delay in receiving their motor vehicle licence disc due to the strike. We encourage motorists to rather renew their discs at the City’s motor vehicle licence renewal offices across the metro should they need their disc urgently.</p><p>Residents are reminded to take along their proof of address when renewing their motor vehicle licences, which must be done annually as this is a National Government requirement. It is very important for customers to have all of the required documentation with them when they apply for licence disc renewals to prevent any additional delays.</p><p>To avoid delays with receiving municipal invoices as a result of SAPO strike action, residents are encouraged to use the convenient email and e-services options available to them by simply logging on to <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/">www.capetown.gov.za​</a> and clicking on the e-services icon to register for these services.</p><p> <strong>E​nd</strong></p> <br>2018-07-12T22:00:00Z1
City appalled by attack on Gugulethu fire stationAn attack on the Gugulethu fire station apparently perpetrated by protestors in the area.<p>​I awoke to news this morning of an attack on the Gugulethu fire station, which occurred just before 04:30 – apparently perpetrated by protestors in the area.</p><p>The building was set alight and firefighters were forced to vacate the premises and remain in the drill yard until Metro Police and Law Enforcement officers had dispersed the protestors.</p><p>It will take several days to ascertain the cost of the damage wrought in this callous attack, but on the face of it, we are potentially looking at as much as a million rand; money that will have to be diverted from another community project as the repair of the fire station is a priority. The engine bay doors, watchroom and security entrance gate were destroyed in the incident. A security vehicle parked at the entrance to the fire station was torched too.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"><img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Inline%20Images/Gugulethu%20fire%20station%20attack%202.jpeg" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /></figure>​​ <p>In addition, protestors also targeted the Fezeka municipal offices behind the fire station and torched four vehicles and a storeroom at the local electricity depot. Staff at the Lansdowne Road fire station in Khayelitsha were also put on alert for possible evacuation amid threats that the protestors were planning to target that facility too.</p><p>We are thankful that no-one was injured, but this has been a very traumatic experience for the nine firefighters who were on duty at the time. The City has arranged trauma counselling for all affected staff and will provide any other support they might need.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"><img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Inline%20Images/Gugulethu%20fire%20station%20attack%203.jpeg" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /></figure> <p>​​The Gugulethu fire station is closed until further notice. Our fire crews will be based at the Mitchells Plain fire station and will dispatch from there. What this means is that the actions of a few have put the lives of thousands of residents at risk, as there will now be a delay in the response times to any fire callouts in the Gugulethu area.</p><p>It doesn’t matter how legitimate the cause, we cannot tolerate the wanton destruction and threat to lives that we witnessed this morning.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"><img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Inline%20Images/Gugulethu%20fire%20station%20attack%201.jpeg" alt="" style="width:1900px;" /></figure>​​ <p>I appeal to the South African Police Service to do everything possible to bring those responsible to book. The City will assist in any way possible to help find the culprits and we also call on members of the public who might have any information about the events this morning to report it to the police or to the City’s Public Emergency Communication Centre by dialling <a> <em>107</em></a> from a landline or <a> <em>021 480 7700</em></a> from a cellphone.</p>​ <p><strong>End</strong></p> <strong><em>Note to broadcasters:</em></strong><em> </em>audio clips are available for download<br>For English: <a href="https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/120718-smith-gugulethu-fire-station" target="_blank">https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/120718-smith-gugulethu-fire-station</a><br>For Afrikaans: <a href="https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/120718-afr-smith-gugulethu-fire-station" target="_blank">https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/120718-afr-smith-gugulethu-fire-station</a><br>For isiXhosa: <a href="https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/120718-isixhosa-smith-gugulethu-fire-station" target="_blank">https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/120718-isixhosa-smith-gugulethu-fire-station</a><br><br>2018-07-11T22:00:00Z1
Time for more action against perpetrators of gender-based violenceSpeech by the City's Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille<p><strong>​The following speech was delivered by the Executive Mayor today at the 100 Men March against violence on women and children.</strong></p><p>Thank you all for being here today to honour such an important occasion and to raise your voices in support of this campaign against gender-based violence.</p><p>We are also gathering here today a few days before what would have been President Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday and this year national government is commemorating the centenary of Albertina Sisulu’s birth.</p><p>These are two great people who stood for women’s rights and ushered in a democratic dispensation which placed greater importance on the protection of children’s rights.</p><p>Twenty-four-years ago, right here in Parliament, our dear Tata Madiba delivered his State of the Nation Address in which he said that ‘Freedom cannot be achieved unless the women have been emancipated from all forms of oppression.’</p><p>As South Africans here today, we have to ask ourselves whether the women and children of this country are free from all forms of abuse. Are we doing enough as a country to ensure that we emancipate the most vulnerable in our society from abuse? </p><p>South Africa is still experiencing high levels of abuse and the killing of women and children, and this is in an indictment on our society. This calls for greater action from all sectors to stand together and put an end to this problem. For how long are we going to have to gather like this to speak on the same issue every year? How long till we see real action against perpetrators of this injustice?</p><p>I was looking at some statistics this week, which state that ‘on average 1 in 5 women older than 18 years old have experienced physical violence and that 41 percent of all reported rape cases over the last three years involve children.’ </p><p>These are really disturbing figures and are in fact really unacceptable for a country that has a Constitution aimed at protecting vulnerable groups in our society.</p><p>As a country, we owe it to the great giants Tata Madiba and Mama Albertina to ensure we fight every single day for the rights of the most vulnerable and marginalised in our society.</p><p>I’m sure they are turning in their graves with the disgrace that is happening in our country where women and children are senselessly murdered by cowards.</p><p>These men who beat up on women and children are cowards. They think they are so strong or claim to be strong but in fact they are weak.</p><p>They are the same men who underestimate the power of women and the contribution we make to society. </p><p>Women and children are supposed to be loved and cared for in the same way that women love and nurture their families.</p><p>Today, I am making a call for all of us to work harder to ensure that all women are freed from all forms of oppression, be it at home or in the workplace.</p><p>We cannot sit by idly in a world where people don’t respect women and we need to continue this fight to rid our nation of this despicable occurrence.</p><p>It is deeply distressing that in many cases the perpetrators of these crimes are close relatives or friends who are hurting our women and children.</p><p>To the men here, I implore you to help your fellow men who continue to raise their hands to women and children to change their ways.</p><p>I challenge you individually to bring five other men to this march next year. These are men that you will work on over the next year to change their behaviour and attitudes in how they treat women and children.</p><p>It also crucial for us as women and mothers to raise our sons to be respectful of women and teach them that women deserve to be treated as equals to them.</p><p>It is even more important for us as women to stand up for ourselves and protect our young ones from abuse.</p><p>We have rights but they remain words on paper if we do not claim those rights and act against abuse. </p><p>I also want to take this opportunity to salute all the women who have walked away from abusive relationships and dangerous situations which they have been placed in by their partners.</p><p>I want to urge other women to have the courage to say ’enough is enough,’ to reclaim their rights and leave those men who no longer care for you but want to hurt you.</p><p>As families and friends of people who are in abusive relationships – we can no longer remain quiet for fear of a stigma that will be attached to a family.</p><p>We cannot protect men who hurt women and children because we don’t want to taint a family name.</p><p>As the City of Cape Town, we are also playing our part in fighting this scourge of violence against women and children.</p><p>We have trained approximately 1 020 people through Mosaic and other partners to raise awareness on domestic and gender-based violence in communities across the metro.</p><p>In 2016, the City also initiated the Women for Change programme where we currently employ over 780 women living in our Council rental stock to help uplift their communities through addressing environmental and socio-economic challenges.</p><p>These community mothers reside in rental stock units and have been recruited, trained and deployed in Athlone, Hanover Park, Manenberg, Uitsig, Lavender Hill, Ocean View and Ravensmead.</p><p>I again want to thank all of you who have taken this walk with us at the #100MenMarch today.</p><p>This occasion and this campaign must serve as a motivating force to ensure men break the chain of violence against women and children.</p><p>But your activism shouldn’t end here today. I appeal to you to continue protecting the vulnerable and working every day to ensure women and children’s rights are respected.</p><p>You don’t need to be a woman to fight for women’s rights. You don’t have to be a member of the LGBTQI community to want gay, lesbian and transgender people to have equal rights.</p><p>We also have to go out there to push for women empowerment and ensure they enjoy equal rights to their male counterparts.</p><p>We all have the responsibility to work to create a just world where all who live in it are equal and treated with the respect they deserve.</p><p>Thank you, baie dankie, enkosi, shukran.</p><p><strong>End</strong></p>2018-07-11T22:00:00Z1
City’s roads repair teams busy fixing potholes after heavy rainsThe City's road repair teams are busy inspecting and infilling some 2 150 potholes that have been reported by residents.<p>​​​The formation of potholes during winter is a common occurrence as it is directly related to the heavy rainfalls and the age or condition of the roads.</p><p>As such, the City’s Transport Information Centre has received an increase in the number of reports related to potholes in various parts of the city as a result of the much-needed recent severe rainstorms.</p><p>‘Approximately 2 150 potholes in various areas across the city have been reported between 1 June and 9 July 2018. This is in comparison to the same period last year when 859 potholes were logged. When comparing the figures, we have to take into account that we have experienced more rain recently than we have in previous years,’ said Councillor Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development.</p><p>The road repair teams are being dispatched to attend to the temporary repair of the potholes in the various areas. Part of the repair work includes a visual inspection of the roads that have been reported and adding those to our priority list.</p> ​ <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Inline%20Images/Womens%20road%20repair%20team.jpg" alt="Womens road repair team" style="width:898px;" /></figure>​ <p> ‘Residents need to keep in mind that, due to practical reasons, especially in winter, we often do temporary repairs on potholes as a holding action until more favorable, drier weather conditions allow for more permanent repair. Permanent repairs will not be effectively achieved when a road or the base layers underneath the road are still wet.</p><p>‘Temporary repairs will consist of infilling the pothole with ‘coldmix’ while the permanent repair will entail cutting the existing road surface around the pothole, preparing the base course, applying tack coat to the prepared base course and finally placing the hot premix,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>Although the presence of water is the primary cause of potholes, the formation of potholes differs somewhat depending on the existing road or pavement composition. Potholes can also result from non-structural causes such as diesel spillages, vehicle accidents, fires, or poor road drainage over certain subgrades.</p><p>‘It must be noted that the majority of potholes form in the wet or rainy season. When it rains and the water accumulates on the road, tyres from the vehicles actually squeeze the water in to the road pavement layer. The repeated pump action between the road surface and the tyres of the vehicles causes the road to crack. Water gets through the cracks and weakens the pavement layers, which in turn leads to more cracking and eventually a pothole forms,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>Residents can report potholes to the Transport Information Centre on <em><a>080 065 6463</a>​</em>​. This is a 24/7 information centre and is toll free from a landline or a cell phone.</p><p>Alternatively, residents can email <a href="mailto:Transport.Info@capetown.gov.za" target="_blank">Transport.Info@capetown.gov.za</a>.</p><p>‘Residents are reminded to please include their name, contact number and the location of the pothole. We want to thank our residents who have been reporting potholes. We appreciate your patience while our teams are attending to the increased volumes of reports that we have been receiving,’ Councillor Herron.</p><p> <strong>End</strong></p> <strong><em>Note to broadcasters:</em></strong> audio clips are available for download<br> For English: <a href="https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/110718-herron-potholes" target="_blank">https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/110718-herron-potholes</a> <div> <br> </div>2018-07-10T22:00:00Z1
