The City of Cape Town says it has set aside more than R3 billion…

The City of Cape Town says it has set aside more than R3 billion to assist indigent residents with rate cuts and rebates. Executive Mayor, Dan Plato, has tabled a nearly R50 billion rand annual budget for the 2019/2020 financial year at a special council meeting. The budget also includes relief for pensioners. Deputy Mayor, Ian Nielsen, says those earning between R4 500 and R17 500 per household will qualify for rates discounts. Nielsen says there will be no rates payable for properties falling under the R300 000 category: “ In the draft budget we announced a lifting of the indigent household income for those who qualify for the hundred percent rebate in property and several adjustments were made on rebates on rentals on council owned housing. We have now looked further and announced an adjustment to the rent rebates on property owners who are dependent on pension for their income.”

  1. That’s the way a Province should be governed. ANC and all the Good for nothing parties take note….

  2. The city of Cape Town has set aside R535 million to address safety concerns in the metropole. Mayor, Dan Plato, says they are planning to deploy at least one safety officer per ward to ensure community safety. He was addressing a media briefing.

    Should we be commend the City of Cape Town for the extra law enforcement personnel being deployed to Bonteheuwel, Bishop Lavis and Valhalla Park? Well the Bishop Lavis Action Community (Blac) has news for you. Within the City of Cape Town you have law enforcement officers who are trained to perform a law enforcement function and get paid a specific salary with benefits such as pension and medical aid. What you may not know is that you have EPWP workers who are trained as law enforcement officers but either don’t receive a salary (volunteers) or on contract and don’t earn the same wage and don’t receive pension or medical aid at all. So, in summary, these law enforcement workers are expected to put their lives at risk in gang areas but are not good enough to be paid the same wage as permanent law enforcement officers.

    In this DA ward of Bishop Lavis, Bonteheuwel and Valhalla Park, already from January to May 2019, over 50 people have been killed in gang violence. Now imagine 50 people are killed in Camps Bay in gang violence for the same period. Why the silence? Why the denial that this is a low intensity war?

    I have not even mentioned Mitchell’s Plain, Hanover Park, Manenberg, Kenfac or Heideveld. I have not even mentioned Nyanga, Langa or Khayelitsha. The working class is being robbed, raped and killed in numbers that is comparible to a war zone. And yet those in authority don’t respond with plans that have the agreement of affected communities. Just think about it, our lives are at risk but we are not consulted on plans and policies that affect us.

    These law enforcement officers will be deployed 1 June 2019. Before the end of December 2019, these law enforcement officers will be targeted by the gangs and any such attack including the killing of such law enforcement officers will be the responsibility of the City of Cape Town.
