Former Western Province schoolboy rugby star Grant Hermanus will make his senior provincial debut when he lines up at fullback for DHL WP in Vodacom Cup action against the Sharks XV at City Park on Saturday (kick-off 16h00).

Hermanus – a mainstay for the title-winning DHL Western Province Under-19 team last year, despite still being at school – takes over the No.15 shirt from EW Viljoen in one of seven changes to the side (positional switches included) that recorded a 25-10 away win over Boland last week.

Viljoen will start in the No.14 shirt this week, with Tshotsho Mbovane lining up in the No.11 jersey.

STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER: TRANSPORT FOR CAPE TOWN, COUNCILLOR BRETT HERRON

The City of Cape Town is not surprised that COSATU is claiming a victory in the

Equality Court today, when in fact they had to concede to not having any case at all. Read more below:

Tony Ehrenreich, leader of COSATU in the Western Cape and leader of the ANC in Council, has once again opted to distort the facts to suit COSATU’s political narrative. He is misleading our residents, the media, and his own constituency.

This from news24.com:

Johannesburg – Jan Smuts Avenue in Randburg was partially closed to traffic on Thursday due to a threat of taxi violence, the Johannesburg metro police department said.

“The threat to violence is as a result of a dispute about taxi routes,” Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said.

Traffic had been blocked off from Selkirk Road and was being diverted to Service Road, said Minnaar.

Taxi operations around the area had also been disrupted.

 ”Two male suspects have been arrested after an AK47 and a handgun were found in their vehicles,” said Minnaar.

Durban - The statue row came to Durban on Wednesday night when the bronze of King George V at the University of KwaZulu-Natal was defaced.

Students and staff arrived on campus on Thursday morning to find the words “End white privilege” splashed in white paint on the statue outside the Howard College building.

Controversy has been raging over the future of colonial and apartheid-era symbols, sparked by the “Rhodes Must Fall” campaign at the University of Cape Town and Rhodes University.

Students and activists have been calling for the removal of the statue of Cecil John Rhodes, the colonial mining magnate and politician.

UKZN spokesman, Lesiba Seshoka, said on Thursday that they were very disappointed to learn of the vandalism and criticised the direction the latest protest had taken.

No proposals or motions for the removal of the statue had been made to the university’s council, he said.

STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER: TRANSPORT FOR CAPE TOWN, COUNCILLOR BRETT HERRON

The City of Cape Town is pleased that COSATU finally conceded that their complaint against the City is without merit. Read more below:

This morning, 26 March 2015, COSATU in the Western Cape withdrew its complaint in the Equality Court that Transport for Cape Town (TCT), the City’s transport authority, is providing a discriminatory and unequal MyCiTi service to the residents from Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha.

The withdrawal follows numerous time-consuming meetings at the Court over the past nine months to defend this costly and vexatious litigation. It was evident right from the start that COSATU’s complaint, which criticised the standard of the service offered in the metro south-east before it had even been launched, was unfounded.

On Sunday 29 March 2015, Jungle Walk, Rubusana Avenue and a part of Washington Street in Langa will be transformed into a playground from 12:00 to 17:00, giving residents the opportunity to imagine what streets would be like if they were designed around pedestrians rather than vehicles. The concept of Open Streets allows residents to enjoy and experience their streets freely and safely, bringing back memories of yesteryear when streets were the playgrounds in many areas.

The City has partnered with Open Streets (a citizen-driven initiative) to bring communities together in a shared open space to enjoy a few hours of fun-filled activities.
