City puts by-law warrants in the spotlight The City of Cape Town’s Law Enforcement Court Section is reconfiguring its modus operandi in a bid to track down by-law warrant evaders.<p>​</p><p>The City of Cape Town’s Law Enforcement Court Section is reconfiguring its modus operandi in a bid to track down by-law warrant evaders.</p><p>The City’s Law Enforcement Department issues thousands of notices each quarter for transgressions of the administration’s by-laws, ranging from illegal dumping to illegal trading, traffic violations and offences stipulated in the by-law related to streets, public places and the prevention of noise nuisances, among others.</p><p>Where Section 56 notices are issued, i.e. an offence is witnessed by an officer, the accused has the option to pay an admission of guilt fine or to appear in court to plead their case. Where an accused fails to appear, a warrant is generated by the municipal courts and executed by Law Enforcement.</p><p>Currently, the department’s area-based staff are tasked with warrant executions on behalf of the Court Section, which takes time away from their primary duties. With the R2 million budget injection, the City will bulk up the resources in the Court Section to allow them to execute warrants themselves.  </p><p>Additionally, the City will consider how it can improve its systems to confirm the identity of suspects who are caught for by-law transgressions. </p><p>‘You can’t arrest an individual for a by-law transgression so, when issuing the fine, officers have very little means to confirm whether the details they’re given are correct. That then becomes a challenge when we reach warrant stage in a case and we can’t find the accused, because the particulars provided were false. So, we’re starting to look at using smart technology to assist us. This includes taking photographs of the accused, checking address details via Google Maps and so forth.</p><p>‘Fortunately, all is not lost, particularly in cases of illegal dumping where we are able to check details using a vehicle’s licence plate. Also, traffic by-law offences and those that happen at a fixed address, like flouting building regulations and noise and other nuisances are also far easier to monitor and track the accused, in the event that they do not abide by the Section 56 notice,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>The three by-laws that generate the highest number of Section 56 notices are the Traffic; Streets, Public Places and Prevention of Noise Nuisances; and Informal Trading by-laws. In the first quarter of 2018, these three by-laws accounted for three quarters of all notices issued.</p><p>‘The streets and public places by-law is perhaps the most challenging, because it covers offences like unbecoming conduct in public and unfortunately, street people are most likely to be fined under this by-law. Given that they are transient, it is difficult to execute warrants and ensure their presence in court, which means that we’re basically caught in a vicious cycle, because no matter the level of enforcement, there are no real consequences. It is frustrating and we are working very hard to see if there is any way to address this challenge.</p><p>‘The recently launched Safe Space for street people is one way that we’re hoping to reduce the number of by-law transgressions in the CBD, because the space provides a spot to sleep, access to ablution facilities and other health and social services. While this space is still in its infancy, if it works as a concept, we could well be introducing safe spaces across the metropole in the coming years. By doing so, we’ll reduce by-law transgressions but also offer street people a step up into possible reintegration,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-07-15T22:00:00Z1
Nelson Mandela statue and exhibition to honour Madiba’s links to the Western CapeWhen Nelson Mandela was awarded the Freedom of the City of Cape Town in 1997, he said that ‘Cape Town’s greatness lies not only in its contribution to our economy but in its involvement in our country’s history.’ <p>When Nelson Mandela was awarded the Freedom of the City of Cape Town in 1997, he said that ‘Cape Town’s greatness lies not only in its contribution to our economy but in its involvement in our country’s history.’ <br> <br>Former President Nelson Mandela is a global icon, but so much of his remarkable life story is tied to Cape Town and the Western Cape. To celebrate his life, his contribution to the country and his centenary, the Western Cape Government and the City of Cape Town will be unveiling a bronze statue of the great father of our nation at the City Hall on 24 July 2018.<br> <br>This will be a fitting tribute to a man to whom we owe a great debt for the sacrifices he made in the journey to attaining our hard-fought freedom and democracy.<br>The statue must serve as a constant reminder of that historical day and the many years of sacrifice that led to that moment when he was freed and later addressed thousands of citizens from the City Hall balcony.<br> <br>The statue will be positioned on the balcony where Nelson Mandela stood when he gave his first address as a free man on 11 February 1990. The sculpture has been created by artists Xhanti Mpakama and Barry Jackson.</p><p>Mpakama is a young artist who was born near to where Nelson Mandela grew up in the Eastern Cape, while Jackson is an experienced bronze sculptor who has crafted artworks of several historical figures for the National Heritage Project. Both artists worked on the Mandela bust which takes pride of place in front of the National Assembly at the South African Parliament.<br> <br>Koketso Growth, run by Dali Tambo, was awarded the tender for the project.<br> <br>This sculpture forms part of an initiative by the Western Cape Government and the City of Cape Town to share former President Mandela’s story with the world. As part of Project Khulisa, the economic development strategy for the region, a Madiba legacy route was envisaged. The route will allow visitors to follow in Nelson Mandela’s footsteps and visit key sites in the province such as Robben Island where he was imprisoned for most of his sentence, to Drakenstein prison and eventually to Parliament, where he was sworn in as our country’s first democratically-elected President in 1994. <br> <br>The focus for the current year has been on developing the City Hall site and the linkage with Madiba House at Drakenstein Prison. This is where Mandela spent the last 14 months of his prison sentence, and where negotiations between the apartheid government and the liberation movement took place. It is also from here that the former president took his first steps as a free man. <br> <br>In August 2017, the City of Cape Town Council resolved to approve a new memorial in honour of Tata Madiba on the balcony of the City Hall. <br> <br>The City of Cape Town will also unveil an exhibition focusing on Mr Mandela’s life and times in Cape Town, the people and organisations involved in the liberation struggle in Cape Town and the events leading up to Mr Mandela’s release and his iconic address from the balcony of the City Hall on 11 February 1990. <br> <br>‘Nelson Mandela is one of a handful of people whom we can really call a global icon. He selflessly gave so much of himself for the people of South Africa, but his message of peace and tolerance endeared him to the world. We wanted to celebrate him and pay tribute. For us, there was no better way to do that than by developing a route that would tell his story to the world, but also create opportunities for the people of this province,’ said MEC for Economic Opportunities, Alan Winde.<br> <br>‘Mandela had a very close connection with Cape Town as it was here that he was imprisoned and here that he was finally set free and delivered his first speech as a free man from the City Hall balcony. It is therefore fitting that we honour him in this way in the Mother City as we commemorate 100 years since the birth of a world icon who sacrificed so much for our freedom and democracy. As we mark this momentous occasion this year, we must all do more to emulate his example and serve those who need our help most. In doing so, we can make greater strides in building a caring and inclusive city and ensuring that the work of Mandela in fighting for our rights and freedoms is felt by all,’ said Executive Mayor Patricia de Lille.<br> <br>‘Nelson Mandela’s legacy can be seen all around us on a daily basis. We are honoured to see his spirit live on through arts, culture, sport and heritage. We continue to celebrate his life through our daily work and we encourage residents and visitors to the city to remember him as they enjoy everything that Cape Town has to offer. We will continue to follow his example in fostering social inclusion in all the communities that we serve,’ said Anroux Marais, Minister for Cultural Affairs and Sport.<br> <br> <br>Unveiling event details:</p><p>Date:           Tuesday 24 July, 2018<br>Time:           14:00<br>Venue:        City Hall, Cape Town<br> <br><strong>All members of the media wishing to attend must RSVP to </strong><a href="mailto:inge@wesgro.co.za"><strong>inge@wesgro.co.za</strong></a><strong> by noon on Thursday 19 July 2018. </strong><br> <br>The public is welcome to gather on the Grand Parade in front of the City Hall to watch the unveiling which will happen at around 15:00.</p><p><strong>End </strong><br></p>2018-07-15T22:00:00Z1
Water heroes, weather and pressure management boosting winter water-saving efforts Average water consumption for the past week has reached another low of 494 million litres per day<p><strong>Summary</strong></p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;"><strong>Average water consumption for the past week has reached another low of 494 million litres per day</strong></div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;"><strong>Dam levels have improved by 1,8% to 55,1% of storage capacity although the increase is not as significant as over the past two months due to the more temperate and dry weather</strong></div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;"><strong>Winter water-saving efforts have been boosted by water heroes, weather and pressure management. The latter effort is saving 58,8 million litres per day. The City’s leak repair programme and engagement with top consumers brings this total to 63,8 million litres saved per day</strong></div></li></ul><p>Capetonians have again shown their commitment to low water usage. Come rain or snow, the City of Cape Town, with the help of its residents, continues to boost water-saving efforts in winter to ensure that Cape Town builds a water buffer for the summer ahead and to help our dams recover from the extreme drought.</p><p>The improvement in dam levels, however, is not as significant as the trend over the past two months as a result of the drier and more temperate weather that Cape Town experienced over the past week. Due to the unpredictability of rainfall, it is important that Cape Town’s water heroes carry on using as little water as possible and that the City’s vital pressure management programme continues across the metro. </p><p>‘Through the ongoing pressure management operation across the metro, which involves dedicated members of staff, professional engineers, contractors and even retired water engineers which the City coaxed back during the peak of the extreme drought, we are saving some 58,8 million litres per day. </p><p>‘Not only does pressure management generally lower consumption by reducing the rate at which water flows to properties, it also reduces leaks and pipe bursts by better ensuring that pressure remains within levels that the pipework can tolerate, and reduces the rate of loss from leaks and bursts. As always, we thank our customers for understanding that this is a very necessary programme,’ said the City’s Executive Deputy Mayor, Alderman Ian Neilson</p><p><strong>Tips for pressure management</strong></p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Please store only up to 10 litres of water for essential usage if required. Residents are urged not to stockpile large volumes of municipal water. This is because, if there are any significant service interruptions, they are not expected to be in effect for long periods</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Please also keep taps closed to prevent water damage in the event of water being restored after a disruption</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Do water-intensive activities such as laundry in non-peak hours i.e. not between 06:00 and 08:00 in the mornings or 18:00 and 20:00 in the evenings</div></li></ul><p> <br>At all times careful consideration will be given to ensure minimal disruption to the water supply.</p><p>Please visit <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater" target="_blank">www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater</a> for all water-related information and follow <a href="https://twitter.com/CityofCTAlerts" target="_blank">https://twitter.com/CityofCTAlerts</a> for specific pressure management information. <br> <br>Please always check with your neighbours whether they too are experiencing low water pressure or intermittent supply disruptions as this would in all likelihood be pressure-related. If the problem persists for an unreasonable period of time, please send an email to <a href="mailto:water@capetown.gov.za" target="_blank">water@capetown.gov.za</a> or call <a>0860 103 089</a>, WhatsApp <a>063 407 3699</a> or SMS <a>31373</a> (max of 160 characters). <br>Winter water-saving tips</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Stick to short, stop-start showers or skip a day if you can</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">In winter, water may take a bit longer to heat up. Don’t let the cold water run down the drain while you wait for it to heat up. Rather collect it in a clean container and use it to wash dishes or laundry</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Install flow restrictors on indoor taps to reduce the flow rate to less than 6 litres per minute. Low-flow showerheads can reduce flow to a maximum of 10 litres per minute. You can also reduce the water pressure to your property by turning your stopcock lower and/or installing a flow restrictor on the main pipe connection from your meter</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Continue to harvest rainwater and use it to flush the toilet or to clean floors</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Continue to switch between using waterless hand sanitiser where possible and using water and soap to clean hands</div></li></ul><p>We encourage all of our water users who are living the #50LitreLife to show their commitment to saving our precious water by getting a free profile picture at <a href="http://bit.ly/2IzvM2t" target="_blank">http://bit.ly/2IzvM2t</a></p><p> <br> <strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-07-15T22:00:00Z1

It is only once you start unpacking the potential risks that you realise just how much could possibly go wrong, which is why it is so important to be prepared. The safety of children will always be a priority, given their vulnerability in instances of preventable disasters,’ 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="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/child%20safety2.jpg" style="width:433px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure><p>Practitioners from Early Childhood Development centres in Langa, Houtbay, the Atlantic Seaboard, Maitland and Kensington are being trained in the following areas:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Understanding of disaster risk management concepts</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Hazard mapping </div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Hazard identification and ranking prioritisation</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Summarising a risk profile</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Extinguishing methods</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Creating an evacuation plan</div></li></ul><p>‘It is no secret that compliance in the ECD sector is fraught with challenges.

However, even after registration, there is a responsibility on ECDs to ensure that they have emergency plans in place and that they are prepared to deal with natural or man-made disasters.
