  • Cllr Mokgalapa hosts Inaugural Tshwane Youth Summit

    Cllr Mokgalapa hosts Inaugural Tshwane Youth Summit

    Mon, Apr 8, 2019

    On Saturday, 6 April 2019, the Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, hosted the Inaugural Tshwane Youth Summit.

    The objective of the summit was to receive the youth's inputs and contributions and consolidate them for the purposes of the 2019/20 IDP, and to ensure that the youth is mainstreamed in the City's programmes.

    This summit provides a space in which the youth can share their visions and wishes for youth development and provide a blueprint for opportunities created for youths as well as any future developmental programmes.

    The City of Tshwane is in the process of consulting communities and stakeholders on the IDP and the youth is also considered to be a strategic stakeholder.

    During the Youth Summit, the Executive Mayor launched #Monyetla2021, where the City will separate its economic empowerment programmes through procurement from skills development and training. The City will continue to provide support for youth development and training in order to ensure the field is accessible to all.

    The Executive Mayor also announced that he will create a youth corner at our business support centres. To start with, he will provide each support centre with one laptop with Wi-Fi connectivity that will exclusively be used by young people.

    The City currently has three incubation centres and six business support centres, and two of these support centres will be turned into business hubs that will provide space for boardrooms, computers and internet access for SMMEs.

    The City will also, through its Tshwane Leadership and Management Academy, avail skills development, training, bursaries and internship opportunities.

    One of the factors that makes Tshwane unique is that it is the city with the highest number of universities in the country, which makes our student population greater than in other cities. It is for this reason that the Executive Mayor saw it fit to create a student village. At the end of March, Council approved the utilisation of land for student accommodation in Soshanguve, and two weeks ago two buildings were put forward for proposals to develop student accommodation.

  • Tshwane to boost climate-friendly infrastructure with support from the C40 Cities Finance Facility

    Tshwane to boost climate-friendly infrastructure with support from the C40 Cities Finance Facility

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019

    The City of Tshwane is on track to become a green and healthy city. To show commitment to sustainable economic growth, the City has officially partnered with the C40 Cities Finance Facility (CFF) on 5 April 2019.

    The CFF will help the City to build two zero-carbon projects in Tshwane over the next few years: a biogas plant and a bicycle lane, thereby contributing to the City's ambitious climate change goals. Starting this year, the City of Tshwane will produce its own reports to investigate sustainable transport and electricity.

    The first project, a combined heat and power biogas plant at one of the City's wastewater treatment works, is expected to cover at least 20% of the works' energy needs and to significantly improve operation and lead to the increased deployment of biogas technology across South Africa – making Tshwane a national leader in deploying this technology.

    The second project is a bicycle lane along a transport corridor in the city, which will connect Mamelodi with the job opportunities in Tshwane East. This project represents the first step towards a coherent, connected and safer cycle network across Tshwane.

    To make these projects a reality, the City of Tshwane has been selected as one of 15 cities worldwide to receive technical support from the CFF. This assistance will allow the City to build the business case for the projects. It will also support the City to develop an economically and environmentally sustainable method of funding the initiatives.

    During the launch of the partnership, the Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, said: "It is a great honour to receive this of technical support from our partner CFF. It enhances our effort to embed sustainability into the service delivery priorities. The support will further enhance sustainable infrastructure strategies in the green economy trajectory."

  • Human rights Day

    Human rights Day

    Wed, Mar 20, 2019

    The City of Tshwane joins the rest of the country in celebrating Human Rights Day on 21 March 2019 under the theme "The year of indigenous languages: Promoting and deepening a human rights culture".

    This theme has been set by national government, and the President of the Republic will speak to it at his main address in this year's commemoration in Sharpeville. The theme seeks to draw attention to the critical importance of indigenous languages and the urgent need to preserve, revitalise and promote them.
     
    The commemorative theme is the coming together of a dream to which the people of South Africa long aspired, and for which they fought and died in their country of birth. After 25 years into democracy, we fondly reflect and appreciate the journey it took and the continued progress made in this area. For instance, the 16 June revolt was not just about the rejection of Afrikaans by Africans, but more about the need for recognition of the indigenous languages of our country.

    Significant strides have been made to accommodate linguistic diversity in our country by setting the legislative framework to enable indigenous languages to thrive, not only as home languages, but also as languages of use in government. The City of Tshwane has led in this area through its dedicated Language Services Section.

    We thus join the country in marking languages as an integral human rights imperative.

    MENSEREGTEDAG, 21 MAART 2019
     
    Die Stad Tshwane sluit by die res van die land aan om Menseregtedag op 21 Maart 2019 onder die tema "Die jaar van inheemse tale: Bevordering en verdieping van 'n menseregtekultuur" te vier.

    Die tema is deur die nasionale regering bepaal, en die President van die Republiek sal tydens sy hooftoespraak by hierdie jaar se herdenking in Sharpeville daaroor praat. Die tema is bedoel om die aandag te vestig op die kritieke belang van inheemse tale en die dwingende noodsaaklikheid om dit te bewaar, te laat herlewe en te bevorder.
     
    Die herdenkingstema bewaarheid 'n droom waarna die mense van Suid-Afrika gestreef het, en waarvoor hulle in hul geboorteland geveg en gesterf het. Na 25 jaar van demokrasie onthou ons graag en waardeer ons die reis wat ons onderneem het en die voortdurende vooruitgang wat ons op hierdie gebied gemaak het. Byvoorbeeld, die opstand van 16 Junie was nie net oor die verwerping van Afrikaans deur Afrikane nie, maar meer oor die behoefte aan die erkenning van die inheemse tale van ons land.

    Belangrike treë is gegee om taaldiversiteit in ons land te akkommodeer deur die skepping van 'n wetlike raamwerk om inheemse tale in staat te stel om te floreer, nie slegs as huistale nie, maar ook as gebruikstale in die regering. Die Stad Tshwane was 'n leier op hierdie gebied deur sy toegewyde Afdeling Taaldienste.

    Ons sluit dus aan by die land in die onderstreping van tale as 'n integrale menseregte-opdrag.

  • Mayor Mokgalapa takes Accelerated Service Delivery Programme to Region 1 and 4

    Mayor Mokgalapa takes Accelerated Service Delivery Programme to Region 1 and 4

    Tue, Mar 19, 2019

    ​This week the Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, continued with his Accelerated Service Delivery Programme in Region 1 and 4.

     

    During his inaugural speech, the Executive Mayor identified service delivery as his key priority and said that he would work tirelessly to ensure that all residents of Tshwane enjoy a good quality of life. It was against this backdrop that the Accelerated Service Delivery Programme was formed.

     

    This programme allows Cllr Mokgalapa to continuously monitor and evaluate progress made on key service delivery projects across the seven regions of Tshwane. The City's teams have set out a comprehensive urban management programme, which has already been implemented.

     

    Region 4's programme started with the launch of the TshWi-Fi Drive in Olievenhoutbosch. The Executive Mayor announced that over the next three years, the City of Tshwane will roll out an additional 1 000 sites, which will double the available hotspots, with the first 200 scheduled for this financial year. Out of the 1 000 planned new sites, 35 were installed in December in Regions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7.

     

    This improved service will include SMME economic development in the form of more than 20 local Tshwane-based suppliers specialising in cabling and field network services for the support, maintenance and implementation of the TshWi-Fi network.

     

    From there the Executive Mayor, with the MMCs and top management, visited and inspected teams carrying out various operations in Ward 106. From there they conducted oversight at the Olievenhoutbosch Cemetery in Ward 48 and visited the Centurion Lake, where Cllr Mokgalapa was able to engage with the Centurion Hotel's management regarding the City's plans for the lake.

     

    Region 1's programme commenced with a meet-and-greet with regional members and staff members. From there they conducted visits to and inspections of the teams repairing potholes and painting road markings, amongst the other projects in Soshanguve.

     

    As part of this week's Accelerated Service Delivery Programme, the Executive Mayor also held a number of public meetings in order to engage with residents who are the City's key stakeholders and who also have a role to play.

  • TshWi-Fi is back, bigger and better!

    TshWi-Fi is back, bigger and better!

    Tue, Mar 19, 2019

    As part of his accelerated service delivery programme, the Executive Mayor, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, launched the Tshwane Wi-Fi drive (TshWi-Fi) in Olievenhoutbosch on 18 March 2019. The accelerated service delivery programme is an oversight intervention to monitor and evaluate the progress of service delivery projects within Tshwane's seven regions, and to ensure high-quality service delivery to all residents.

    The City will now be offering citizens access to more data, doubling the free access data allocation from 500 Mb to 1 Gb per person, per day.

    For now, 79% of the TshWi-Fi service has been successfully restored, and only 21% of the sites are down, mainly due to vandalism and theft.

    Over the next three years, the City will roll out an additional 1 000 sites, which will double the number of available hotspots. Altogether 35 sites were installed in December in Region 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7, and another 200 sites are scheduled for this financial year.

    The City aims to grow and improve the service going forward.

    Queries about TshWi-Fi services can be directed to publicwifi@tshwane.gov.za.

    Mokgalapa also inspected various service delivery operations in Region 4 as part of the ongoing accelerated service delivery programme

    A title deed gives a homeowner the security of tenure and confidence over their property. Your house is not your house until you have a title deed.

    1. What is a title deed?

    It is an official and legal document that proves that you are the rightful owner of a stand (house).

    2. Why must I have a title deed?

    This is the document that proves that a house or a stand is yours. It will be needed when you sell your house, apply for a loan to renovate or upgrade your house or even submit housing plans if you are planning to extend your house. This document should be kept in a safe place. Should this document be lost or misplaced, you will pay for a replacement.

    3. How can I find out if there is an uncollected title deed registered in my name?

    You may visit a housing office nearest to you. The list and addresses of the offices are listed above.

    4. Who should collect a title deed?

    The person who has been allocated a house with their name appearing on the title deed. Only a registered person/owner of a house or stand can collect a title deed.

    5. What do I need to have to collect a title deed?

    The registered person should take their green bar-coded identity book/card along when visiting a housing office.

    6. The house was given to my father/mother/aunt/sister, etc who is now deceased. What will happen now?

    The first thing is to ensure that someone should be appointed to be the heir and/or executor of the will of the deceased.

    The heir/executor will then submit a letter of appointment issued by the Magistrates' office/Master of the High Court to the same office.

    The heir/executor must also have their identity book/card and the death certificate of the deceased with them.

    7. No one has been appointed as the heir and/or executor, what do I do?

    The family member(s) of the deceased must visit one of the housing offices. They will be given a letter to take to the Master of the High Court. This letter will request the Master's office to appoint an executor/executrix for them.

    They will then submit the appointment letter along with the deceased's death certificate and the executor's identity book/card to collect the title deed.

    8. I have all the documents needed to collect a title deed, so where do I go to collect it?

    Visit the housing office in the area where your house/stand is located to collect your title deed. See the list above for the physical address of your closest office.

    9. I want to call and ask first before I go there, who do I call?

    Call the housing office in the area where your house/stand is located.

    Tswelopele swept through Bronkhorstspruit

    Tue, Mar 5, 2019

    ​On Saturday, 2 March 2019, the Executive Mayor, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, took the Tswelopele Clean-up Campaign to Bronkhorstspruit in Region 7, as the City continues on its mission to encourage residents to keep their environment clean.

    Tswelopele is a mayoral initiative focused on encouraging volunteerism and promoting environmental care. The aim of the campaign is to inspire communities and businesses to take charge of their natural environment. It also aims to encourage participants to focus on separating waste so that more work is done towards recycling and overall environmental awareness.

    The City of Tshwane acts as a point of contact for communities who want to drive initiatives aimed at cleaning up their local areas, and therefore Cllr Mokgalapa will be taking the campaign to all the other regions of the City, setting aside every first Saturday of the month for this purpose.

    After the past Saturday's campaign, the Executive Mayor, together with his MMCs, held a meeting with the community of Bronkhorstspruit on a number of community issues and concerns that required their attention.

  • Smart meters to be replaced from 1 March 2019

    Smart meters to be replaced from 1 March 2019

    Thu, Feb 28, 2019

    The City will roll out its alternative metering system to replace the TUMS smart meter from 1 March 2019. The Gauteng High Court set aside the roll-out of the smart meter project called Security of Revenue in October 2018. 

    Residents of Boardwalk Meander will be first on the replacement list and technicians will commence with the disconnection and removal of the smart current meters and reconnection of City of Tshwane meters on 1 March.

    Through the alternative metering system the Municipality will take over the administration of the 13 000 meters that have been managed by TUMS. The TUMS smart meters had been installed at approximately 6 500 large power users (LPUs) and 6 500 small power users (SPUs) by the time the roll-out was discontinued. 

    It is expected that the replacement of all 13 000 meters will be completed at the end of June 2019.

    Consumers can rest assured that their data and historical transaction history have been retrieved for transfer to the new alternative metering system.

    The new Executive Mayor, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, is wasting no time in getting down to business. This week the Executive Mayor kick-started the Accelerated Service Delivery Programme in Region 5 and 7 by inspecting the teams that carry out various projects in the areas.

     

    "I vow to be the service delivery Mayor of Tshwane. Most of my time and focus will be spent on speeding up the delivery of services in the city. Many of our communities still suffer from years of neglect prior to 2016. We need to do everything in our power to address this," said Cllr Mokgalapa.

     

    The Accelerated Service Delivery Programme is an oversight intervention to monitor and evaluate the progress of service delivery projects within Tshwane's seven regions, and to ensure high-quality service delivery to all residents.

     

    The key issues attended to were cleaning cemeteries, cutting grass, repairing potholes, graveling roads, doing maintenance at community centres and fixing street lights.

    The Executive Mayor urged communities to work in the spirit of "Mošomo o tšhaba diatla" ("Work is progressing").

     

    The Executive Mayor will visit all the regions in the next few weeks.

  • Public meetings on the revised by-law on outdoor advertising

    Public meetings on the revised by-law on outdoor advertising

    Mon, Jan 28, 2019

    The City has drafted a revised by-law to replace the current outdoor advertising by-law which was promulgated during February 2006. This draft document was approved by Council on 25 October 2018 to be subjected to a public participation process to garner the comments of the public and relevant stakeholders. Public meetings commenced on Saturday, 19 January 2019 and further meetings will take place from 28 January to 2 February 2019.

     

    The detailed meeting schedule is as follows:

    Monday, 28 January 2019 at the Erasmuskloof Fire Station at 18:00

    Tuesday, 29 January 2019 at the Centurion Council Chambers at 18:00

    Thursday, 31 January 2019 at the Wonderboom National Airport at 10:00

    Friday, 1 February 2019 at the Sammy Marks Auditorium at 10:00

    Saturday, 2 February 2019 at the Rooiwal Community Hall, Sammy Marks Dining Hall, Olievenhoutbosch Community Hall and Stanza Bopape Community Hall in Mamelodi from 09:00

     

    The by-law is applicable to and regulates all outdoor advertising in the City of Tshwane's area of jurisdiction.

     

    The by-law will –

     

    • strike a balance between outdoor advertising opportunities and economic development on the one hand and the conservation of visual, tourist, traffic safety, environmental and heritage characteristics on the other hand; and

     

    • set out the legal requirements for aspects such as application procedures, safety, amenity and decency, the design and construction of signs, offences and penalties, as well as the types of signs and the regulation of their display.

     

    This by-law will apply to any person or organ of state advertising on any sign erected within the jurisdiction of the Municipality as defined in terms of this by-law.

     

    Copies of the draft by-law are available on the City of Tshwane's public website (http://www.tshwane.gov.za), as well as at customer care centres and municipal libraries.

     

    Anyone who wishes to comment may submit written comments to clydep@tshwane.gov.za or viginiam@tshwane.gov.za; hand-deliver it at Room 305, 3rd Floor, Sammy Marks Square, Lilian Ngoyi Street, Pretoria; or post it to PO Box 3242, Pretoria 0001.

  • Malaria transmission is seasonal

    Malaria transmission is seasonal

    Tue, Jan 15, 2019

    Malaria transmission in South Africa is seasonal and September to May are malaria or high-season months. The summer rains during the first quarter of the year bring with them an increase in the number of malaria cases, and malaria transmission is at its highest during the warmer and wetter months of November through to April, with a peak in January and February.

     

    An increase in the number of malaria cases has been noted in the low season of 2017 compared to the low season of 2016. Between June and August 2016 there were 794 cases, but in the same period in 2017 there were 2 238 cases.

    The higher rainfall along with the warmer temperatures experienced during that time, could be the reason for the increase in the number of cases in the winter of 2017.

     

    Malaria is a parasitic disease that is transmitted by mosquito vectors of the Anopheles genus. In South Africa the malaria risk areas or endemic areas are the north-eastern parts of Limpopo with a higher risk closer to the Limpopo River Valley, Lowveld areas of Mpumalanga including the Kruger National Park (KNP), and the far northern parts of KwaZulu-Natal bordering Mozambique. Residents of and travellers/tourists to malaria risk areas must remain vigilant of malaria and make use of anti-mosquito measures to avoid being bitten. The use of malaria chemo prophylactic drugs is advised.

     

    Commonly misdiagnosed as flu, which is more common during winter, malaria presents itself as bouts of fever accompanied by cold or flu-like symptoms, alternating with periods of absence of feeling sick. Intermittent symptoms include headache, malaise, fatigue, nausea, muscular pains, chills and even diarrhoea. People in endemic areas or those who have recently visited such an area should consult a physician or healthcare practitioner immediately when these symptoms appear.

     

    Malaria treatment is highly effective if administered during the early stages of the disease. Symptoms of complicated or severe malaria can develop quickly and include delirium, generalised convulsions, impaired consciousness and respiratory distress.

     

    Awareness of malaria and the risks associated with it, especially in high-risk areas, is the first step towards prevention, which is always better than cure. People need to be made aware of the disease in order to protect themselves, even if they do not live in an endemic area.

     

    When living in or travelling to a malaria area, consider the following to avoid being bitten (also useful for non-malaria mosquitoes):

     

    • Avoid going out between dusk and dawn (when Anopheles mosquitoes usually feed);
    • Wear long-sleeved clothing if going out at night;
    • Avoid wearing dark colours because they attract mosquitoes;
    • Apply DEET-containing insect repellent to exposed skin;
    • Use screens over windows and doors;
    • Use anti-mosquito sprays or insecticide dispensers, or burn mosquito coils at night; and
    • Sleep under bed nets if available.
