  • Mayor hosts gender-based violence night vigil

    Mayor hosts gender-based violence night vigil

    Fri, Oct 4, 2019

    On Thursday, 3 October 2019, the Executive Mayor, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa hosted a night vigil under the theme "United in Reclaiming our Space". 

    The recent spate of violence against women is an indication that gender-based violence in South Africa is not abating and that the incidence is increasing. The aim of the night vigil was to speak out against gender-based violence and to encourage communities across all genders, to show solidarity with victims and survivors of gender-based violence, and to highlight the City's response and plans to end this social ill. 

    "This gender-based violence night vigil is no small accomplishment as this is the first response to gender-based violence at this scale, being led by any municipality in the country. We are a caring and responsive government, one that is intentional about campaigning the cause for women and children. We have seen and heard enough in the news and from loved ones about how lives have been devastated by violence being meted out by men," said the Executive Mayor. 

    The Mayor announced that the City of Tshwane has committed itself to –

    (1)    signing an anti-gender-based violence pledge;

    (2)    strengthening the gender development task team through the gender unit and the multi-party women's caucus; and

    (3)    implementing a gender policy in collaboration with the Department Of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), in order to advance gender mainstreaming efforts in the city of Tshwane and throughout our communities.

    He proclaimed, "Tonight, the City of Tshwane pronounces the start of the 365-Days of Gender-Based Violence Action Plan." 

    "The City takes a stand that #NoMore will violence against women and children exist under our watch.

    #NoMore will gender-based violence, sexual harassment or discrimination of any kind make a home in our lives.

    #NoMore will we protect individuals we know to be causing harm in our communities.  

    "Gender-based violence stops today! Right now!" concluded the Executive Mayor.

  • City to provide basic services to informal settlement

    City to provide basic services to informal settlement

    Wed, Sep 25, 2019

    As part of accelerated service delivery, the City of Tshwane took a decision to restore the dignity of Tshwane residents through the Letsema project. This project was established by the Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Stephens Mokgalapa, with the purpose of bringing dignity to the people of Tshwane by providing them with basic services.  

    The Letsema project includes the installation of a new water reticulation network in the Nellmapius Ext 22 informal settlement. Construction of this network will service about 390 stands in the area. The Nellmapius Ext 22 project, which started this September, will take ten months to complete.  

    Cllr Mokgalapa is confident that upgrading informal settlements across Tshwane will improve the quality of life for those who reside in these settlements. The Executive Mayor promised residents of Nellmapius Ext 22 that once the contractor has completed the installation of the water networks, another contractor will immediately start electrification of the area.

    Keep our rivers clean. Healthy rivers supply water for drinking, growing crops, manufacturing, energy and transport. They also help to prevent erosion, dispose of waste and provide natural protection from flooding.
    Rivers in Tshwane are polluted because of the following:

      • Sewage or sludge
      • Illegal dumping
      • Urban run-off
      • Phosphates from soap
      • Industrial waste water

    Help conserve our rivers by doing your part:

      • Adopt a river in your area and arrange a river clean-up
      • Adopt a zero-waste lifestyle by using the four Rs – Rethink,        
        Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
      • Use biodegradable products
      • Save water

  • Trees are vital to our existence because they clean the air

    Trees are vital to our existence because they clean the air

    Mon, Sep 2, 2019

    In South Africa the first week of September is designated National Arbor Week, a week that leads up to Arbor Day, on 7 September. It is a special day set aside to raise awareness of trees and the important role they play in our everyday lives. 

    Arbor Month promotes the planting and maintenance of indigenous trees throughout South Africa. Each year specific trees are identified to receive special focus, one common tree and one rare tree. The common tree for 2019 is the marula tree (Sclerocarya birrea), and the rare species is the apple-leaf tree (Philenptera violacea).  

    Trees, as plants, contribute towards cleaning the air by consuming carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.  

    The City observes Arbor Month through a series of action-oriented activities to promote urban forestry.

    Tshwane will also celebrate Arbor Month 2019 under the theme Forest and sustainable cities. The City's Environment and Agriculture Management Department invites communities, officials and individuals to submit requests for trees on behalf of schools, churches, orphanages and community centres. Please send a request letter to or call 012 358 6090 to make arrangements to deliver the letter of request.  

    The following information must be provided in the letter:

    • The area where the trees will be planted
    • Street name
    • Suburb or township name
    • Contact number and address of the person requesting the trees

      The details of the organisation to receive the trees should also be indicated in the letter, including the organisation's name, contact person and contact number.

    Trees are the lungs of the earth. If we destroy them, we destroy ourselves.

  • Tshwane shows its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint

    Tshwane shows its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint

    Mon, Sep 2, 2019

    ​The executive mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, launched the City's photovoltaic installation system in a City-owned facility – the Tshwane Leadership and Management Academy (TLMA) – with a capacity of 204 kWh. 

    The City is currently demonstrating and piloting low-carbon projects in order to ensure a smoother transition to low-carbon development.  

    "As the city puts its Climate Response Strategy into action, we are committed to investing in renewable energy and reducing our carbon footprint. We are going green and clean. This photovoltaic installation is a first for the city and demonstrates that energy sovereignty is a possibility for City-owned buildings. We hope to do the same at other municipal buildings." said mayor Mokgalapa.  

    This innovative project was conceptualised, developed and implemented with the assistance of the Energy and Electricity Division, and it will be managed by the division onwards.  

    To ensure that both new and existing buildings meet high-efficiency energy performance requirements is important for the City of Tshwane as a whole, so as to deliver on its international commitments, including the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Declaration. 

     "The City of Tshwane has signed the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Declaration, which provides a bold and far-reaching vision of what our future climate-resilient built environment can look like if we seize the opportunities that come with the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in buildings," said MMC for Utility Services, Cllr Abel Tau, when he gave an overview of the project.

    Hastings Chikoko of C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, graced the event with his presence and words of support.   

    After all has been said and done, the executive mayor, some members of the mayoral committee, stakeholders (ZRW Mechanica and ABB) and supporters proceeded to the site for a clear view and demonstration of the system by facilitators.

  • Tourism Mayoral Dialogue Executive Mayor speaking notes

    Tourism Mayoral Dialogue Executive Mayor speaking notes

    Fri, Aug 23, 2019

    ​On Thursday, 22 August 2019, the Executive Mayor hosted the Tourism Mayoral Dialogue, which forms part of a broader initiative of meetings with key sectors that are present in Tshwane and crucial to the city's development.

    This event allowed a space where the captains of the tourism industry could engage on opportunities in the sector, as well as some of the challenges they experience.

    Tshwane, as the administrative capital of the country, is frequently home to visitors due to the large number of embassies that are located within the city.

    The city is effectively a brand ambassador for much of the country and it is thus important that we are able to ensure that our tourist value offering is clear for everyone to see and for the various international visitors that are based here.

    "To the north we have the Dinokeng Reserves where people have the opportunity to visit the Big Five by travelling for little more than 40 minutes from the city centre to go and view some world-class wildlife facilities. In the north-west there is the Tswaing Crater, and just around the CBD we have Freedom Park along with a selection of museums.

    Loftus, SuperSport Park and Giant Stadium draw people to our city from around the country and the world to attend sporting events. Not to mention the high-end shopping parks in the east of the city with Menlyn Park and the Menlyn Maine development.

    These are just some of the tourist offerings that are available in the city. East to west, north to south, there is something for everyone and it is our job city to ensure that we draw people in to come and visit our great city," said the Executive Mayor.

  • Multi-million-rand Centurion taxi rank to benefit commuters

    Multi-million-rand Centurion taxi rank to benefit commuters

    Thu, Aug 22, 2019

    On Wednesday, 21 August 2019, the executive mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, led a sod-turning ceremony to mark the start of construction of a multi-million-rand state-of-the-art taxi rank on the corner of South Street and Hendrik Verwoerd Drive in Centurion's central business district.  

    This project is a public-private partnership with JSE-listed diversified real estate investment trust Redefine Properties, which meets the goals of fundamentally changing spaces in a way that changes lives and solves problems the community and commuters are facing. 

    The new taxi rank in the shadows of Centurion Mall will cover an area of approximately 10 000 m2, and provide ranking facilities for 55 taxis as well as a holding area for an additional 100 taxis. The rank will also house offices for taxi associations, 22 informal kiosks for traders and public toilets, amongst a host of other amenities.  

    Estimated to cost R12 million, the project is being funded by Redefine Properties and will be managed under a joint steering committee which includes the City of Tshwane, Centurion Taxi Association and Redefine.  

    The rank will be operated by the Centurion Taxi Association and jointly managed by the City, Centurion Mall and the Association. It is estimated that more than 15 000 commuters will use the new facility when it opens in 2020. The new facility will not only improve access to taxis for those who live and work in the city, but also complement the area aesthetically.  

    Councillor Sheila Senkubuge, MMC responsible for Roads and Transport, said: "This emphasises the fact that our City is open for business and will partner with private industry in making sure that we are able to deliver services to the people. 

    "This project also ensures that our taxis have proper places to park and commuters have safe spaces from where they can access public transport. This is the vision of our new administration; this is an example of what we want to do around the entire city."  

    The new rank sets an example by bringing the taxi industry into the mainstream formal economy as vital players and movers. This enabled formalisation could make a significant difference to the industry, and more so, enhance maturity on the roads, compared to enforced formalisation. This well-supported transition to a dynamic formal economy could be a potent example for other developers and firms to emulate.  

    Nashil Chotoki, Redefine Properties' National Asset Manager: Retail said, "The taxi rank will ease travel to and from the mall as well as provide commuters and families with a safe and reliable transit hub in their midst." 

    Redefine's Challenge Convention, a concept launched last year seeks to bring all stakeholders, including community representatives, NGO's, tenants, shoppers and entrepreneurial-minded thinkers, together around Redefine buildings to go through a process to distinguish and prioritise the most pressing community needs and find ways and means of delivering tangible outcomes.  

    "The announcement resulted from talks that have been ongoing for over three years involving the Council, Centurion Mall and the taxi associations active in the area. It aligns perfectly with our belief that an investment in transit is an investment in the surrounding community," adds Peter Sutton, councillor for Ward 78, Centurion and chairperson of the Section 79 Oversight Committee: Finance. 

    "The new facility betters the commuting options for residents to help connect them to work, schools, medical facilities and shopping. Connectivity is a key element of our comprehensive regional transit strategy and contributes to economic growth by efficiently connecting between people and job opportunities."  

    "We are also entirely happy that this is directly linked to the Centurion Mall, because we have been looking at different developments, especially shopping malls and so forth, to ensure that they have proper public transport facilities. This speaks to the vision that the department has to make sure that public transport, not only for commuters but for operators as well, is able to function in a safe space that benefits the people," added Cllr Senkubuge.  

    The development will be on Council land and all Council and infrastructural requirements will be the responsibility of the City. The rank will be completed during the first quarter of 2020. In the interim, the taxis will continue to operate from the temporary site until the new rank is opened.

    Cullinan Library launch - City shows commitment to empowering residents

    Thu, Aug 22, 2019

    ​The Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, officially opened the new Cullinan Library in Ward 100 in Region 5. 

    This launch is aligned with the City of Tshwane's social contract with residents of Tshwane, which is to provide them with access to quality services and to promote inclusivity. 

    "It is thrilling to be part of this milestone which will inevitably empower this community by providing educational, social and recreational needs for the young and old. As the first citizen of this city, I take seriously the responsibility of educating our children. They are the bedrock upon which the future of this country is being built. Such inquiring minds can only be developed through a culture of reading and exploration," said the Executive Mayor.  

    The R87 000 000 library comprises toddler, junior, teenage and adult lending sections, a reference section, study hall and a dedicated computer room. 

    It will offer comprehensive services, such as assistance with school projects, holiday programmes and public access computers which will have Wi-Fi.

  • Cllr Mokgalapa hosted Business France and Tshwane Event

    Cllr Mokgalapa hosted Business France and Tshwane Event

    Mon, Aug 19, 2019

    The Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Stevens Mokgalapa, hosted the Business France and Tshwane Event on Monday, 19 August 2019.

    The event was used as a platform for sharing ideas about how the City can place itself in the best position to change its current development trajectory.

    From the gathering of experts across various fields, knowledge was imparted about key lessons from setbacks and successes, with focus being placed on four strategic industries that the City of Tshwane is particularly interested in as pivotal to changing the tide positively for our local economic development challenges.

    The first category is utilities, which includes the water, waste and energy sectors.

    The second category is urban planning and infrastructure.

    The third category is transport and the fourth, most importantly, is investment.

    "I have made it my mission to unlock opportunities for partnerships through foreign direct investments. This is where jobs are created, where consumer spending can be encouraged, where money flows into sustainable projects that provide a rich return on investment for the local and international business community," said the Executive Mayor.

    The ongoing feasibility study on the City's waste sector that is being funded by the French Treasury is one such illustration of opportunities for partnership.
