Top acts to usher in holiday season at festive lights switch-on Table Mountain may be the biggest star on Cape Town’s long list of attractions, but it is the people of the Mother City that make this beautiful landmark really shine. <p>Table Mountain may be the biggest star on Cape Town’s long list of attractions, but it is the people of the Mother City that make this beautiful landmark really shine.  <br> <br>So, it is fitting that the theme for this year’s festive lights switch-on is #BeInspiring – a well-timed call for Capetonians to stand up and help shape our common destiny.</p><p>The Cape’s biggest free open-air event will take place at the Grand Parade and surrounding streets on Sunday 2 December 2018, from 16:00. Each year, thousands of locals and visitors enjoy the festive atmosphere of this fun outdoor event and, in particular, watching a range of entertainers light up the event with their energy and music – for everyone. </p><p><strong>2018 will be no different, with an exciting line-up that includes: </strong></p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">DJ Loyd</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Sarah Theron</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Yanga</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Kunjalo</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">The Unknown Dance Crew</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Robin Pieters featuring Elwira Standili</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Emo Adams</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">YoungstaCPT</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Shekhinah</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Kwesta</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Dr. Victor and the Rasta Rebels</div></li></ul><p>Also joining the line-up will be the winner of the 2018 Festive Lights Switch-on Music Challenge on indi.com (don’t forget to enter).</p><p>Each act has impacted on the local creative arts scene, and highlights just how every one of us can share in shaping a dynamic South African identity. </p><p>With numerous accolades, such as ‘Best City in the World,’ ‘One of the Most Innovative Cities in The World’ and most recently being named the ‘World’s Leading Festival and Events Destination,’ Cape Town is seen as the city of inspiration. Now Capetonians are called upon to think about how best to #BeInspiring - how to use your specific talents to transform our world into a prosperous and unified space for all.</p><p>There’s no better icon to galvanise one into action other than the late Nelson Mandela. This year marks what would have been Madiba’s 100th birthday and, to honour his centenary, South Africans are encouraged to reflect on his life and legacy. This is the time to rekindle our common desire to do good, and to help the less fortunate in practical ways – to be motivated by the legacy Madiba left to future generations.</p><p>There are many ways of answering the call to ‘find the Madiba in you,’ and the festive lights switch-on is the perfect time to symbolically reinforce this commitment.</p><p><strong>I am sure the line-up for the event will have young and old well entertained for the evening:</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Dr. Victor and the Rasta Rebels </strong><br>For more than 20 years, multiple award winning Dr. Victor, (Victor Khojane), has been crafting and creating elevating, up tempo sounds that have garnered this singer, musician, songwriter and producer, many devoted fans all over the world. Aside from the band's music prowess, Dr. Victor has also released a number of solo projects, earning him a number of awards and the opportunity to open for international stars such as: Paul Simon, Gloria Estefan and Janet Jackson.  His latest project (issued in 2014), is the album "I Believe In Love."</p><p><strong>DJ Loyd</strong><br>DJ and TV and radio presenter Loyiso Mdebuka represented Smirnoff at a campus level as a Smirnoff Spin Agent and scooped top honours. As a TV Presenter on SABC 2’s Hectic Nine-9, he appeared daily to over 2,5 million viewers. In 2011, he released his first compilation album with DJ Euphonik, titled Euphonik Presents Phuture DJs Volume 1, and became a regular Mixshow DJ on 5fm’s MyHouse. He also founded The Live Out Your Dreams Tour.</p><p><strong>Sarah Theron</strong><br>Singer-songwriter Sarah Theron has been receiving standing ovations for over two decades. A versatile vocalist, she excels in a range of styles. She has been the star of many a pantomime, musical, cabaret and TV show, including Nunsense for Pieter Toerien; a Vita Award-winning solo cabaret titled Yet Another Fat Lady Sings; and Soli & Sarah Se #Mense with Soli Philander. Her music is playlisted on all Afrikaans radio stations in South Africa and Namibia.</p><p><strong>Yanga </strong><br>This Idols SA favourite has amazed both listeners and judges. Yanga’s medley of Avulekile Amasango by the Soweto Gospel Choir left judge Somizi speaking in tongues. His forecast was that Yanga Sobetwa was going to be a superstar. Even Zahara has praised Season 14’s youngest contestant. The 16-year-old wants to be a gospel singer.</p><p><strong>Kunjalo</strong><br>Kunjalo Music Ministries pulls together talented performers from in and around Elsies River. ‘Kunjalo’ means ‘It is so - all things are possible’ in isiXhosa. The group consists of eight vocalists and five musicians. The band has performed at five consecutive Jazzathons, as well as at the Chicago Festival and the Portnet Festival. Kunjalo appeared onstage with Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Bishop Hezekiah Walker and more. They’ve released six albums.</p><p><strong>The Unknown Dance Crew</strong><br>The Unknown Dance Crew from Ocean View was established in 2010. This ensemble consists of four masked dancers – JP Koopman, Erin Carelse, Brandon Silinda and Carlo Simons. Their standout feature is their use of a theatrical style of dance. The crew has opened for Toya Delazy, Busiswa and Jimmy Nevis. They won second place on SA’s Got Talent and appeared in Ifani’s Ayadelela video. </p><p><strong>Robin Pieters featuring Elwira Standili</strong><br>Robin Pieters has appeared as lead or backing vocalist for the likes of Peaches and Herb, and Cece Peniston. He gained a following while participating in The Voice SA and made a splash with ‘It’s A Love Thing.’ An Idols SA contestant, Worcester-born singer Elwira Standili is a recording artist and motivational speaker. She successfully staged African Queen – The Future at the Baxter this year. </p><p><strong>Emo Adams</strong><br>Emo Adams celebrated 30 years in music in March, when JAG (Just Another Band) looked back on three decades of Emo’s career. Starting out in musical roles such as in District 6: The Musical and Kat & The Kings, Emo has a knack for making his shows extra special. He’s embraced the TV medium with Noot Vir Noot, Malan en Kie and the Emo 30 Show for kykNET.</p><p><strong>Youngsta</strong><br>YoungstaCPT has 30 mixtapes and numerous EPs under his belt. The man is regarded as one of the most important South African emcees of his generation. His sound is dubbed ‘Kaapstad’, and he takes listeners to unexpected places nuanced by his specific slang. He teamed up with fellow rapper Irshaad Ally for ‘Dala Wat Jy Moet’ for hard-hitting film Nommer 37. </p><p><strong>Shekhinah</strong><br>2018 has been a great year for Shekhinah Donnell, with her nomination for six SAMAs, and achieving three wins. Her Rosegold album is currently certified gold and she is optimistic this will grow in light of her partnership with Spotify. The Durban-born pop/R&B vocalist has appeared on Idols and has clocked up hits like ‘Back to the Beach’ and ‘Let You Know.’ In 2016 she featured on Black Coffee’s single, ‘Your Eyes,’ plus on Jesse Clegg’s ‘Breathing.’ </p><p><strong>Kwesta</strong><br>In the 10 years since his first single announced his arrival on the South African music scene, Kwesta has carved out a very unique path for himself, not least of all pushing Hip-Hop into the South African mainstream. Over this time he has maintained much of the street-cred that made him a revered and undefeated battle rapper before his first recording deal. Releasing chart topping singles in every popular genre, he is now putting all that experience to use grooming the next generation of African rap superstars with his label, Rap Lyf Records, which is a legacy project with the aim of exporting African hip-hop to the rest of the world.</p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-11-12T22:00:00Z1

It is not the first case of this nature that has been uncovered by our officers, and sadly, given the levels of violence against women and children in our country, it probably won’t be the last.</p><p>‘With the mooted introduction of a 24-hour traffic presence on our roads, our staff will be able to conduct more vehicle check points – an invaluable tool in crime fighting as it often lifts the lid on criminals after the fact, or puts a spanner in the works for planned criminal activity,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>Elsewhere, the Metro Police Department arrested 41 more suspects on a range of charges including drunk driving and drug possession. Other notable arrests included:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Six youths aged between 15 and 17 on charges of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and public violence, after a fight in Gugulethu. Officers broke up the fight and arranged medical assistance for an injured male who had sustained multiple wounds. As the suspects were all minors, a probation officer was called in to facilitate the matter at Gugulethu SAPS.</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">The arrest of a 28-year-old male for intimidation and contravening the Domestic Violence Act in Newfields, Hanover Park</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">A 24-year-old suspect arrested in Ravensmead for possession of a prohibited firearm and ammunition</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Officers also assisted 27 stranded motorists along the N2 and R300 highways to prevent them from falling prey to criminal activity such as robbery.</div></li></ul><p>Staying on the roads, the Cape Town Traffic Service arrested 66 motorists in the past week including 44 for drunk driving and 18 for outstanding warrants. Officers also issued 5 721 fines for various transgressions.</p><p>‘I think it’s worth reminding motorists that drunk driving isn’t the only offence for which you can be arrested on the roads. If you have outstanding warrants, please settle them or risk a nasty surprise at a vehicle check point or roadblock, which will increase in frequency soon to deal with the demands of the festive season.</p><p>‘Earlier this year, we announced that we had taken the pain out of finalising fines that had progressed to warrant stage by implementing an online payment option. So, there really is no excuse not to pay outstanding fines unless the intent is not to pay at all. If that is the case, then I have no sympathy for individuals who do find themselves in the queue at a roadblock or check point,’ added Alderman Smith. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-11-11T22:00:00Z1
