Uitsig backyarders have better access to running water thanks to City’s innovative campaign Residents living in backyards finally have access to their own taps and running water thanks to an innovative project<p>​This morning I visited houses in Uitsig where residents living in backyards finally have access to their own taps and running water thanks to an innovative project.</p><p>The City of Cape Town is currently installing taps with running water to 232 backyard dwellings in Uitsig. These taps are connected to a smart box that enables a family living in the backyard to access 200 litres of water per day. </p><p>Previously, backyard dwellers were dependent on the water allocations of residents living in the main house on the property. With the smart box, each tap only releases water when a special key is inserted.</p><p>So far, the City has installed taps and smart boxes at 67 properties in Uitsig during the past month. Contractors are also busy upgrading infrastructure in the community to enable the City to install flushing toilets in each of the 232 backyards.   </p><p> </p><span><div class="image-gallery-slider img-gal-1" id="img-gal-1" data-slides="3" data-slide="1" style="height:493.5px;"><div class="image-gallery-content" style="height:414px;">​​​​ <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-1"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/uitsug.jpg" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b></b></a> residents living in backyards finally have access to their own taps and running water thanks to an innovative project</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-2"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/uitsug2.jpg" alt="" style="width:2140px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b> residents living in backyards finally have access to their own taps and running water thanks to an innovative project</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-3"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/uitsug3.jpg" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b> residents living in backyards finally have access to their own taps and running water thanks to an innovative project</p> </figcaption> </figure> </div><div class="image-gallery-control"><div class="image-gallery-caption"><p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b>Aerial view of Cape Town</b></a> - Loren ipsum dolor sit amet loren ipsum dolor sit amet Loren ipsum dolor sit amet.</p></div><div class="image-gallery-nav"><div class="nav-info">1 of 3</div><div class="slide-next"> <i class="icon arrow-white-next"></i> </div><div class="slide-prev"> <i class="icon arrow-white-prev"></i>​</div></div></div></div>​​</span><p>The City is expected to spend R5,4 million to provide water and sanitation services to backyarders in Uitsig. During the current financial year, the City allocated R233,4 million for the installation and maintenance of sanitation facilities to residents living in backyards or informal settlements in areas across the city.</p><p>Over the next three financial years until 2021, the City plans to spend more than R850 million on informal settlements upgrades and backyarder services.</p><p>Today I met some of the residents benefiting from the City’s efforts. Johnny Smith, 62, a grandfather from Uitsig, told me about his plans to revive his own vegetable garden. Another resident, Reginald Lucas, 53, says his family’s life is now easier that they have access to cooking water instead of being reliant on the main house for water. </p><p>It is heart-warming to know that the City’s efforts are improving the lives of our most vulnerable residents. This programme speaks to the City’s aim to build a caring city and our goals outlined in the Organisational Development and Transformation Plan to be more customer-centric. The City of Cape Town is providing basic services to people living in backyards while those who qualify wait for formal housing opportunities.</p><p>The City is restoring the dignity of all our residents through achieving excellence in service delivery. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2018-05-22T22:00:00Z1
Libraries look to communities to help curb vandalism and theft © City of Cape Town At just after 13:00 on Tuesday, a group of attackers stormed the facility and vandalised computer equipment, windows and doors.<span>​<figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Uitsig4.jpeg" style="width:1023px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure></span>At just after 13:00 on Tuesday, a group of attackers stormed the facility and vandalised computer equipment, windows and doors. Staff and patrons were also threatened with physical violence. It is further believed that the group intended to set fire to the building as police later found some type of accelerant outside. <p>‘It appears that the incident was linked to protest action in the area, and, while staff and patrons were not physically hurt, they have been left traumatised by the ordeal. I appeal to anyone in the community who knows anything about this incident to please approach the police or the City’s enforcement agencies so that we can hold those responsible to account for their actions,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><span><figure class="figure-credits right"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Uitsig1.jpeg" style="width:1023px;" /><figcaption> <p>© City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure><p>The City has yet to calculate the cost of the damage, but the incident comes at a time when the Library and Information Service has already submitted 110 insurance claims in the current financial year valued at R1 247 864,44. This is three times higher than the 58 claims submitted in the previous financial year for R377 394,13. </p><p>‘Some of our libraries are under siege with thieves stealing anything of value that they can lay their hands on, from air-conditioning units to computers. There is also malicious damage to property targeting doors, windows and ceilings and, frankly, we are appalled.</p><p>‘We are working very hard to modernise our libraries and stay apace with technology for the benefit of our users. Our SmartCape facilities are crucial to learners who need to conduct research for projects and assignments, but also to jobseekers and entrepreneurs. To deprive people of these opportunities through cable theft or vandalism and even the theft of desktop computers is nothing short of callous,’ said Alderman Smith. </p><span>​<figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Uitsig3.jpeg" style="width:1023px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure></span></span>Of the City’s 104 libraries, 17 feature prominently on the list of insurance claims and account for 54% of all claims submitted in the last three financial years, with the most damage occurring at the Bellville, Bishop Lavis, Eerste River, Goodwood, Hangberg and Heideveld libraries.<p>‘Our library staff have started engaging with the local councillors and subcouncils to highlight the seriousness of the situation during community meetings and to secure the buy-in from these communities to take ownership of their local facilities and help track down the culprits. In many instances, people know who the criminals are but are too fearful or apathetic to do anything. Libraries are such important resources in the communities they serve and should be protected at all costs,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p>Some of the measures implemented to negate the risk of theft or vandalism include perimeter lighting, installation of burglar bars and tinted windows, alarm systems and additional beams and sensors at potential entry points like ceilings and courtyards. A number of City libraries are also on the list of facilities set to form part of the recently expanded Facility Protection Officer initiative <a href="https://bit.ly/2LlLvDN" target="_blank">https://bit.ly/2LlLvDN</a></p><p>‘I also call on neighbourhood watches and other local community policing structures to help us safeguard our community facilities at large. We also have an informant reward system for information that can lead to the successful apprehension and conviction of persons who target City infrastructure or the recovery of stolen items. We need all hands on deck if we’re going to throw the book at criminals,’ said Alderman Smith.</p><p><strong>End</strong></p><p> </p>2018-05-22T22:00:00Z1
Young entrepreneurs given a boost toward a bright futureThe City of Cape Town is launching the 3rd edition of the #YouthStart Entrepreneurial Challenge. The Top 100 finalists will be announced tonight.<p>​Good evening, goeiedag, molweni, as-salaamu ailaykum, shalom, namaste </p><p>Thank you for being here this evening to celebrate a wonderful initiative.  </p><p>#YouthStartCT is an initiative I am immensely proud of because it brings together bright young minds who are bold and determined to succeed. </p><p>This initiative is a firm example of our efforts to uplift communities from poverty by empowering our young leaders. </p><p>I have no doubt that all of you sitting here tonight have what it takes to take our beautiful country forward and you have started the journey toward shaping your own destiny. </p><p>In its latest quarterly labour force report, Statistics SA says and I quote, “The South African youth are still vulnerable in the labour market”.</p><p>The figures supporting that report are very distressing to read. That is an indictment on all of us as a nation and it should be a call to action to ensure that we invest in our young people.</p><p>It’s up to all of us, as government, the private sector and residents, to bring to the table to innovative solutions that will see the reduction of the unemployment rate, especially among young people. </p><p>In this regard the City’s goal in our Organisational Development and Transformation Plan is to promote economic inclusion and one way is to empower young people with the tools and skills they need to carry out this huge task ahead of them.  </p><p>The City’s approach to youth development is multifaceted, taking into account the many challenges facing the youth. These include projects focusing on:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">providing life skills </div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">providing work and employment readiness skills </div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">building the capacity of youth formations </div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">raising awareness on topical issues that affect the youth</div></li></ul><p>#YouthStartCT 2018 is one of the programmes that the City is using to grow the development of young people in Cape Town.<br>The first two years of this initiative have proven that YouthStartCT helps to stimulate entrepreneurship among young people.</p><p>Last year, we saw 100 young people work hard in this programme and we know that many of them will go far to become some of the best independent business minds in this country. </p><p>I was so inspired by last year’s winner, Yandisa Langa, who started farming at his home in Fish Hoek. </p><p>Yandisa is a determined young man whose hard work soon reaped rewards when he started supplying vegetables to large retailers such as Pick n Pay and Food Lovers’ Market. </p><p>I am told that his business is growing each day as he is now also supplying his products to six restaurants and individual households who place orders with his company.</p><p>This programme has shown us that young people don’t want to be spoon-fed.
