Domestic Worker requiring work

I have a very good, reliable and honest domestic worker lady who is looking for additional work on a Wednesday and a Friday - so if anyone in CKN is looking for someone I can recommend her. She has worked for me and my sister for some years now.

Flatlet or bed-sit required

Hi everyone.
I'm looking for a small flatlet/studio one bedroom place to rent for our
home helper and her dog. Occupation from 1 September.
Unfortunately they have to move out at the end of this month due to the property being sold (house in CKN).
If anyone in CKN has anything for Happiness and Cleo (her dog) please please contact me directly. They are both lovely members of our family. We cannot let them go back into an informal settlement situation, its not safe.

We would like to donate R4,000.00 toward the third Dowry car in CKN as our neighbourhood safety is of prime importance to all of us.

Spread this around as we would like other people to show support and come up with the rest. Every little bit counts.

Dear CKN,
Please take a few minutes to read  below about Identipet microchip for our companion animals. They offer a number of  services that you may not even be aware of. 
I cannot stress the importance and value of micro chipping enough!

While there are a number of microchip companies in South Africa Identipet remains my personal number choice for various reasons. They are an established company with a strong database that is kept up to date and grown by a team of staff. They also do a lot of outreach programmes and sponsor SPCA's and vets with their scanners. Have a browse through their website for more info (link further below)

As a subscriber I found this to be a good communication,  worth sharing with you fellow CKN community.
P.S. If you are looking to chip your dog or cat, Radiokop Animal Clinic offers Identipet micro chipping at a very reasonable rate - R225 current rate at June 2018. Note: This excludes the Identipet subscription fee (monthly or lifetime offers) which is detailed in their website.

Your friend in furry matters, 

Since August 2016, we have been working hard to revise, review and revitalise every part of our offering to you. This includes new branding, packaging and systems to complement our top quality microchips and scanners for all types of animals. We hope that you will agree that we are offering more value for you and your pets than ever before

The New Identipet App is available in the App Store and Google Play Store.  

  • Register your pet on the Identipet National Animal Database by scanning the microchip packaging and completing your information.

  • Mark your pet as deceased when that inevitable, sad day arrives
  • Locate emergency vets in your area, and initiate maps and directions from the app.
  • Seamlessly and safely transfer ownership of a pet.

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
NA Reporter (Cape Times/

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.

An interesting article on the value of a well cared for neighbourhood

It affects us all and helps keep house prices 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.
