The Mother City is flooded – with tourists.

Cape Town International Airport said yesterday that it expected passenger numbers to soar in the coming days after a bumper November.

Airport workers “processed” more than 1.5million passengers in October and last month.

Domestic arrivals were up by 4%, to nearly 300000 last month, compared to the same period last year. International arrivals grew by 3%.

“If we consider that both October and November had shown growth it is highly likely that the trend will continue during December.

“March is typically the busiest month of the season,” said Deidre Davids, communications manager for the airport.

The city’s tourism hot spots are well-prepared for the deluge.

Miss South Africa 2014 judges Anele Mdoda, Kojo Baffoe and Pnina Fenster were the first people to realise there was something special about Rolene Strauss when she was one of hundreds of entrants who entered the Miss SA competition back in 2013.

In March 2014 Strauss beat off 11 other finalists to take the Miss South Africa crown at Sun City and this week was crowned Miss World in the UK.

Says radio personality and TV presenter Anele Mdoda: “The one thing we did as the judges from the first round was look for a Miss South Africa but we knew it was time for us to win Miss World. The first time Rolene met with us and left the room, there was a bit of silence and then we said ‘Boom, there goes our girl’. A year later she has honoured all our wishes as judges and hopes as a country. Well done meisiekind.”

SYDNEY (AP) — Eight dead children and a woman suffering from stab wounds were found inside a home in a northern Australian city on Friday, police said.

Queensland state police said they were called to the home in the Cairns suburb of Manoora on Friday morning after receiving a report of a woman with serious injuries.

When police got to the house, they found the bodies of the children inside. The victims range in age from 18 months to 15 years.

A 34-year-old woman found inside the home was suffering from stab wounds to the chest, a Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said.

The woman was receiving treatment for her wounds and was in stable condition at a hospital, Detective Inspector Bruno Asnicar said. He said he had no further information, including how the children were killed.

“As it stands at the moment, there’s no need for the public to be concerned about this other than the fact that it’s a tragic, tragic event,” Asnicar said. “The situation is well controlled at the moment. There shouldn’t be any concern for anyone else out of this environment.”

Another radio host has left Power FM following a number of presenters who have left the talk radio station.

Other presenters who have left include Siki Mgabadeli, McIntosh Polela, Chris Vick, Asanda Magaqa and Eusebius McKaiser.

The newspaper’s website reported that apparently some resigned due to contractual disagreements, while others were not given contracts before joining the station.
