LETTERS FROM RESIDENTS

29th November 2017

I would also like to thank John and Dowry for the amazingly quick response in regards to the recent incident which took place at the Total Garage, opposite Constantia Drive, when several explosions went off at +/- midnight. It was very reassuring to know that there was such a quick reaction and instant feedback as to what was going on out there.  You have such a great team and make us feel very much safer + protected.

With appreciation, kind regards
Penny

Sorry this email is long overdue.  I really need to commend the dowry officers with regards to the house fire last week, I was flagged down on my return home by my neighbour at 55 Kroton Rd.  Our concern for the fire spreading to the house due to no –one being at home together  with the high winds on the day and the fact that I know the owners have a dog spurred the two reaction officers into action, we broke open the pedestrian gate found the dog and got him out of harm’s way.

The reaction officers tried to find a hose pipe and when there were no connections to the tap started with an empty cooler box and a basin to use water out the pool, myself and another neighbour moved dry wood away from the blaze, coupled with your assistance in getting ER24 out a fire brigade and another security company was a remarkable reason to love in this community.

These two reaction officers went beyond the call of duty to assist where possible – I mean a cooler box to fight what was a raging fire when we arrived takes some guts, they are not just our 2 cars they are part of the neighbourhood and it shows in how friendly calm and very dedicated they are.


Looking for accomodation for our gardener and domestic lady

We are selling our property at 29 Bamboes and are looking for somewhere for them to stay. The gardener will do gardening work for the accomadation.

Latest news on water restrictions in Gauteng

*City only partially lifts water restrictions in effort to promote a culture of water conservation*

14 March 2017

City of Johannesburg Press Statement by Cllr Nico de Jager
MMC: Environment and Infrastructure Services Department

The City of Joburg welcomes the decision by the Department of Water and Sanitation to lift water supply restrictions in Gauteng municipalities. As per the Government Gazette Notice No. 910 of 13 March 2017, the Director-General of the Department of Water and Sanitation withdrew the water restrictions within the Integrated Vaal River System.

However, South Africa remains a water scarce country and the City of Joburg remains a net importer of water. We urge all water users to maintain vigilance in conserving this scarce resource.

The risk of demand outstripping supply in the intervening period between now and the commissioning of Phase II of the Lesotho Highlands Project (2025) remains a real threat. According to the 2009 Phase II feasibility report, the full yield is expected to be utilised by approximately 2030.

Therefore the City will, in an effort to maintain a culture of water conservation, only partially lift Level-2 water restrictions according to section 44 (3) of the Water Services By-law:

  • On an annual basis, between 06:00 - 18:00 during 1 September and 31 March; and between 08:00 - 16h00 during 1 April and 31 August, all consumers are prohibited from watering and irrigating their gardens; and

  • All consumers are prohibited from using a hose-pipe to clean paved areas and driveways with municipal water.

The implementation of by-law enforcement is crucial for Joburg to be a City that works. The JMPD has issued a total of 665 fines to consumers who contravened the Water Services By-law and consumers are urged to report non-compliance by phoning the JMPD 24/7 hotline on 011 758 9650.

I have been assured that Joburg Water will continue to remain in contact with stakeholders to educate them about water conservation, to disseminate information and respond to feedback.

We must change the manner in which all of us engage with water. The current water footprint for the City of Joburg is 309 liters per capita per day (l/c/d), compared to the national and world averages of 274 liters and 175 liters respectively. At the height of the restrictions, the demand reduced to 289 liters per capita per day.

Water saving must become part of our lifestyle. The water conservation measures implemented as a result of the restrictions must become the norm.  Residents are urged to keep on using grey water for watering gardens and flushing toilets; to report leaks and bursts and install water saving devices.

The success of our interventions depend on all of us working together to ensure that our taps do not dry up in future.

R10 000 fine for failing to renew gun licence

20 February 2017
A
NA Reporter (Cape Times/www.iol.co.za)

A man who failed to renew his firearm licence in time, and was thus in illegal possession of an unlicensed firearm for some six months, was fined R10 000 or two years in prison on Monday.

Derick Johnson appeared in the Parow Regional Court before magistrate Constance Nziweni.

The magistrate agreed with prosecutor Barry van der Berg that the case did not justify a jail sentence without the option of a fine as this was more of a technical offence.

Johnson told the court the licence had expired in June last year and that he was in fact in the process of renewing it when he was arrested on December 29 last year.

He told the court: “I was still in the process of getting the licence sorted out.”

The prosecutor added that he would have called for a prison sentence without a fine had Johnson in fact been in possession of the unlicenced firearm for illegal purposes.

Blending justice with mercy, the magistrate suspended half the fine for five years and allowed Johnson to pay the remaining R5 000 in two instalments – R2 000 immediately and the remaining R3 000 at the end of April.

However, to bring the gravity of the offence home to him, she warned Johnson he would be in serious trouble if he failed to pay the R5 000, or even part of it, by the end of April.

She warned him: “If you fail to pay, you will be rearrested and brought before this court again, and I will send you to prison.”

She said the court did not know why he had failed to renew the licence on time – whether it was due to laziness or ignorance.

Nziweni said it was crucial for the criminal justice system that the requirements for the renewal of firearm licences be complied with to the letter.

She said justice required the courts to temper punishment with a measure of mercy, as she had done by suspending half of Johnson’s fine and prison sentence, but that she would be failing in her duty if the court did not send out an appropriate message to communities.

The message was that offenders caught in illegal possession of unlicensed firearms, for criminal purposes, could expect heavy jail sentences, she added.

HELP REQUESTED

September 2016

Good day Sir/ Madam

My name is Philiswa Simon, I am 21 years old and live at 38 Worsboom Street.

I have started collecting items e.g clothes and farewell / banquet dresses for less priviledged children. But I haven't fulfilled my target. As days draw closer and closer, farewells/ matric dances are around the corner and there are so many who won't be attending due to financial problems at home. They can't afford entrance fees or dresses / suits. For every teen, going to your final year dance is a big occassion as one enters into adult hood. I had my experience and it was the best thing ever. Even though I didn't have that priviledge to wear the most expensive dress but still I was able to put pieces together and dont regret going and making lifetime memories. I wish for the next person to also experience that feeling too. I wanted to ask if anyone has any dresses / suits that are still wearable. I would i appreciate, even old clothes that you have that are no longer worn. I would appreciate being able to donate to children with no clothes to wear, not just matriculants.

Your support would mean the world to me. Hoping to hear from you soon.

PAPER PICK UP

The Ronnie Bag..........

I don't think that one needs to expound the virtues of recycling as a means of saving natural resources and the energy saved in the initial manufacturing process.

The recycling bug has yet to hit us here in South Africa as it has in say, Western Europe, where it has become an instinctive reaction. All household refuse is sorted into 3 or 4 types and bagged for collection by the local authority etc.

The Ronnie bag is a starting point for this habit to gain momentum in our society. The number of bags (or rather the lack of) placed for collection in our suburb indicates that we have a long way to go. Please help us to stop this waste of resources and energy by participating in this project.

Collections are done every week on a Friday and every house was given a bag at the start of this project. If you are bagless then I am sure that if you leave your collection in a box or other receptacle, a bag will be left by the collection agency. Lets get into the recycling habit!

Put your bag out on the pavement before 8am.
