KIENO KAMMIES: Are we heading towards a maternity care crisis?

Could we be seeing more obstetricians choosing to retire early? The cost of medical practice insurance isn't cheap and is one of the reasons why going to some specialists can be so very dear to the pocket. And because of the time lag allowed between the procedure having being done and a related lawsuit, some doctors are choosing to jump ship from their career speciality at an early age, so that they don't have to deal with such lawsuits after retiring… One such field that's being affected by this is obstetrics Additional info: This is one of the topics being discussed at the RCOG 2017 Conference- currently underway at the CTICC (20-22 March) (Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists)

KIENO KAMMIES: Meet the woman lobbying for a second police station in SA’s murder capital, Nyanga

In September last year – the annual crime stats were released. One of those stats left an indelible mark in activist Nelisa Ngqulana's mind: the Western Cape did not only have the most murder hot-spots out of all the provinces but Nyanga (her hometown) topped the list as SA's murder capital… a position it has held for the last FIVE years… After witnessing someone being shot outside her father's home in Nyanga – Nelisa decided to take action and created a petition for another police station to be built in the area. The petition has over 650 signatures thus far and counting. We speak to Nelisa next… Additional information Sign the petition here: https://awethu.amandla.mobi/petitions/build-another-police-station-in-nyanga-cape-town Nyanga, which has a population of 57, 996 according to the 2011 Census, has one police station.

KIENO KAMMIES: Protest action continues in Masiphumelele

A week ago a protest by residents of Masiphumelele drew attention to land issues in the community causing the Cape Town Cycle Tour to be cut short. A week later – the protest action continues. Residents were unhappy with the response of ward councillor Felicity Purchase to a memorandum which they handed over on February 14. The demolition of shacks, the unavailability of land and the lack of electricity in some areas were some of their concerns. One of the protesters told GroundUp they were protesting because they were desperate. "The city thinks they can come and demolish people's houses and not provide them with anything. Where do they want us to stay? We backyarders are being chased out of the places we stay in everyday and have nowhere to go," she said.

KIENO KAMMIES: Activists call for legal recognition of Muslim marriages

For many, marriage is a beautiful celebration of two people joining in love…. but for others tying the knot is much more than the new change in societal status …it brings certain allowance you didn't have before – you can inherit in the absence of a will and in the case of divorce, be entitled for spousal maintenance. Almost a decade of ongoing debate into the recognition of Muslim marriages in South Africa… and it seems Muslim women can't get their customary weddings legally acknowledged. Today the Western Cape High Court was due to hear arguments from the WLC, the State, and interested parties on whether the failure to recognize Muslim marriages, among others, discriminates against women. However, the case was once again postponed. So the WLC have decided enough is enough. Seehaam Samaai, Director of the Womens Legal Centre tells us what they plan to do next… Additional information The ongoing violation of the human rights of women in Muslim marriages has been the subject of a more than a decade law reform process. This process to all intents and purposes have been abandoned. The WLC launched its application as the South African Government failed to comply with its constitutional obligations to give recognition to Muslim personal law, including Muslim marriages and the consequences arising therefrom, instead permitted the continued operation of unconstitutional legislation. The Judge President has ordered the consolidation of a further matter pending before the High Court which similarly highlights the plight of Muslim women. There are several matters that are pending at a number of courts across the country. Hundreds of women will be joining the Women Legal Centre at 09h00 on 20 March 2017 in solidarity - to ensure that their voices are not silenced. For many of them the Courts have become the only vehicle for justice.

This week will see some changes to our Africa Report. We will be getting more stories from the various regions on the continent – from those who are closer to the stories than we are. And today we are speaking to Nana Boakye-Yiadom, based in Accra, Ghana... 1. There's huge debate in Ghana now instigated by respected Charismatic Bishops, asking for the for the educational system to be altered for the current primary and junior high school system to Ordinary (O) and Advanced (A) levels. The bishops say the falling standards of education in the country can largely be attributed to the current system but the two major teacher unions have risen against their proposal. It's a major talking point here now 2. Parliamentary processes have initiated to make recent tax cuts announced in the new government's first budget. The announcement sent some importers and businesses into wild jubilation. This new government is centre-right and says it bent on an enabling environment for businesses to thrive. 3. Maybe for South African interest, MTN has finalized processes to list on the Ghana Stock Exchange. The move is part of conditions for securing a 4G license for over $64 million. When the move is completed, MTN will offload 35% of its shares to Ghanaians.

KIENO KAMMIES: Is CAFDA closing down?

Think of the area that you live in… Now think of some of the long-standing community institutions peppered in and around your suburb… Institutions making a real difference to community members in need… Now imagine if that establishment had to shut their doors… (Whether it's a clinic, church outreach program or a feeding NPO… IF these places close down it will be most felt by those it serves). Last week Friday we got a call from Hazel in Grassy Park alluding to an important and local institution succumbing to such a fate – have a listen… This morning we will check in with Cafda to find out if this is true… Additional information Founded in 1944, CAFDA's role is to serve the Cape Flats community through restorative support for the entire family and to create educational and social opportunities for the community. https://twitter.com/cafda1944 https://www.facebook.com/CAFDA-Cape-Flats-Development-Association-141004859257061/ http://www.cafda.org.za/index.php

KIENO KAMMIES: SASSA misses deadline

No one is completely sure whether SASSA and the Social Development Department met the 4pm deadline to submit details to the Constitutional Court about the contract to pay social grants. What we are aware of is that the constitutional court wants to know when Sassa knew that it wouldn't be able to take over the payment process and why it wasn't informed of this fact immediately. There has been no official statement from the court that the papers have been filed. The matter will be heard in court tomorrow and this is why the court wanted answers to these crucial questions beforehand. According to EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides the documents were filed in response to the call by everyone, but the department did not adhere to the court's deadline requesting specific details about the Sassa contract Gia joins us on the line now….

KIENO KAMMIES: What is being done about illegal occupants of land next to Trafalgar High?

People are desperate for a place to stay, especially closer to the city where they most likely work or would like to work. Unfortunately, some can't find a place to stay or have been on the housing lists for too long and take it upon themselves to set up a makeshift dwelling on open pieces of land. We might not like it, but it's reality Last week Wednesday, we received a call from Klaus of Tamboerskloof, about such a settlement that's been on the land at Trafalgar High – let's take a listen … It's not an easy situation to resolve – doe to processes that need to be followed… but joining me on the line is Suzette Little – the Mayoral Committee member for Area North If one looks at the facebook pages for various neighbourhoods, it seems that almost every region is experiencing something like this – on varying scales – how big a problem is it for the City?

KIENO KAMMIES: Argus Cycle tour cancelled - first time in history

On Sunday morning several thousands of cyclists woke up to the truth that the 40th Argus Cycle tour had been cancelled… the first time in history. The race was initially shortened to 78 km due to damage to certain sections of the route as well as fears of protest action expected later in the day. However, on Sunday morning after some of the race's groups had started in extremely high winds on the foreshore, it was decided to cancel the event altogether. About 35,000 riders entered the race, including more than 4,000 coming from abroad. A positive spin to the cancellation of the race, meant that all the food and beverages that were set to be distributed to racers was redirected to victims of the Imizamo Yethu Fire in Hout Bay. Additionally Virgin Active SA has also come out now saying anyone who was going to cycle may visit any of their gyms today and R10 will be donated to Hout Bay Fire. NOTE: No refunds will be given as stated in the rules of the event where cancellations for safety reasons are concerned.

On Friday the South African Revenue Service launched an attack into the Chair at Davis Tax Committee Judge Dennis Davis saying he is undermining Sars leadership and “unashamedly” misleading the public by claiming Sars is at risk of imploding. The attackers come in light of Davis speaking at a conference on tax evasion and illicit financial flows in Cape Town last weekend. The conference was arranged by the Alternative Information Development Centre. In a statement on Friday SARS said that “Judge Davis unashamedly misled the South African public and purported to undermine public confidence into Sars in a desperate endeavour to pursue a patently false narrative.” In a nutshell was Davis allegedly said… was that Sars had no capability of actually dealing with multinational corporation and capital that sought to evade tax, and that the drop in income tax collections was the most obvious red flag…. Basically saying the SARS allows the wealthy to evade tax.

Such silliness. Waiting a minute will not harm you. In fact, rested cardio is apparently great (stop go stop go)" This morning we decided to continue this conversation but from a different approach - What is the motivation to go on two wheels – is it because it's cheaper?

KIENO KAMMIES: Stats SA releases GDP figures -

Statistics South Africa yesterday released GDP figures for the fourth quarter of 2016. They showed that South Africa's economy contracted by 0,3% quarter-on-quarter (seasonally adjusted and annualised), and that a fall in mining and manufacturing production in that quarter pulled South African economic growth into negative territory. However all industries in the tertiary sector recorded positive growth rates, led by an increase of 2,6% in transport and communication services and an increase of 2,1% in trade, catering and accommodation services. But what does that mean for the overall health of our economy? Additional info: The unadjusted real GDP increased by 0,7% year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2016. The South African economy grew by 0,3% in 2016 compared with 2015. All provinces recorded positive economic growth rates in 2015 compared with 2014, with the exception of Free State and Mpumalanga which both experienced a decline in economic activity. Nominal GDP in the fourth quarter was estimated at R1,1 trillion.

KIENO KAMMIES: Bathabile Dlamini at Parly inquiry - SCOPA responds

Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini has repeatedly vowed that all social grant beneficiaries will be paid by April 1st – though it is not clear how this will be done or who will do so. Yesterday Dlamini had to face the music by appearing before Parliament's Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) to discuss the contract to pay social grants. While addressing members of Parliament yesterday, Dlamini said that if push comes to shove they could make “Grindrod the main service provider while present service provider (Cash Paymaster) could be the minor provider” Dlamini failed to pitch at a Scopa meeting last week when the committee discussed millions of rand in irregular expenditure in her department. Additional information Dlamini's department and the South African Social Security Agency have been negotiating a new contract with Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), the company which is administering grant payments for government. In 2014, the Constitutional Court ruled the current contract between Sassa and CPS was invalid and couldn't be renewed after it expires on 31 March. The confusion has sparked concerns around whether 17 million South Africans will receive their social grants.

We thought that his product might have a role to play during the water crisis we're facing. He told us that he hasn't received the support from local government he thought he would have – let's take a quick listen back to what he told me… Marishane then said that it would be really useful in hospitals and prisons. Alan Winde is the MEC for Economic Opportunities – he joins me on the line

KIENO KAMMIES: Ad feature: future for our cities

KIENO KAMMIES: CoCT Water Department not attending to reported leaks?

He says he twice reported a water leakage for his property along Canal Road in Wetton on 28 December and then on 27 January – more than 2 months later, there has still been no one from water services going through to follow up… and according to the City of Cape Town's Top 100 list of water consumers, listed at number 39 is a property on Canal Road – with 251 000 litres “used” in a month.

KIENO KAMMIES: Minister Dlamini requested to appear in front of SCOPA

Yesterday, when Minister of Social development Bathabile Dlamini held a press briefing in Pretoria, she refused to answer any questions about how government grants will be paid out from April and instead told journalists that a perception of a crisis was a media invention. Legal journalist at eNCA in Johannesburg Karyn Maughan was at the presser, and was particularly argumentative in wanting answers about Dlamini's alleged disrespect for the constitution. Additionally she refused to answer any questions about the shocking resignation of the director general of her department, Zane Dangor. Dangor is not speaking to press at the moment, but it has been said that he resigned because he was not able to work with Dlamini. This is according to the Sunday Times. Dangor took up the position in November last year, but says relations between him and Minister Bathabile Dlamini have completely broken down. He said he could no longer work in the department as the environment has become toxic. Meanwhile at the press briefing yesterday Dlamini vowed that mechanisms are in place to ensure that all social grant beneficiaries will be paid by the 1st of April. While Dlamini says that has accepted joint responsibility with Sassa for the crisis, standing committee on public accounts (SCOPA) chairman Themba Godi yesterday singled out Dlamini for causing the crisis. Godi has additionally request that Dlamini appear before SCOPA tomorrow, as she failed to do so last week. In a statement released, Godi says Dangor is one of the many departmental and Sassa officials who have been frustrated by what he calls Minister Bathabile Dlamini's heavy handed interference in Sassa's administrative matters.

KIENO KAMMIES: Clem Sunter’s flags to watch

Clem Sunter's “flags” are proving to be prophetic. Each month we speak to Clem Sunter to discuss the issues which we should be focusing on both locally and internationally… issues which Clem has dubbed as “flags”. Last year – Thursday 25 May 2016 to be exact – we spoke with the scenario planner and he warned us that we need to be really worried about our dam levels and take action – and drastic action at that! During that SAME conversation – Sunter also told us that Trump's success (in his presidential campaign) had more to do with Americans voicing their dissatisfaction with Washington (than with Obama specifically). Have his predictions come full circle? We speak to Clem next… 1) the water situation and the options we face 2) Trump and his rational behaviour (not) and while the US economy is still strong, it can face challenges if Trump pushes through certain measures 3) Brexit and the possibility that Northern Ireland and Scotland might secede

KIENO KAMMIES: The Finance Week that Was: 3 March 2017

1. It's no April fool's joke: Bathabile Dlamini's department still doesn't know how it will pay social grants to the most vulnerable members of society starting on 1 April. 2. Shame, it couldn't have happened to nicer people: The Bank of Baroda is now also closing the accounts of the friends of the state president. 3. MTN reported a net loss for the first time in 20 years…and then the shares jumps 8.3%

KIENO KAMMIES: Could SAPO work as a “back up plan” for SASSA payouts?

April 1 is April Fool's Day but it will be no laughing matter if millions of social grant recipients do not receive their much-needed payouts on time. It is already clear that Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini has failed miserably in securing a credible, reliable service to see that our most vulnerable in society get the government aid promised to them. For now, government wants the current distributors of the grants, the embattled Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), to continue as the service provider for another year. Meanwhile Thokozani Magwaza, CEO of SASSA says he has approached the Post Office as a “back up plan” to assist in the distribution of the grants. But just how practical is this? I am now joined by Post Office CEO, Mark Barnes...

KIENO KAMMIES: Mo Ibrahim Foundation keeps leadership prize

One of the world's most exclusive awards is proving to be near impossible to win. The Mo Ibrahim Foundation announced on Tuesday (28 Feb) that the prize committee could not settle on an African leader worthy of the $5 million Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership for 2016. Named for its billionaire Sudanese founder, Mo Ibrahim, the prize is intended to “celebrate excellence in African leadership”. In the prize's existence since 2006, only four leaders have been honoured. Jay Naidoo, who's a board member of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, talks to us next… Additional information The announcement was made following a meeting of the independent Prize Committee chaired by Dr Salim Ahmed Salim, and the Foundation's Board meeting last weekend. The previous Laureates are President Hifikepunye Pohamba of Namibia (2014), President Pedro Pires of Cabo Verde (2011), President Festus Mogae of Botswana (2008), and President Joaquim Chissano of Mozambique (2007). Nelson Mandela was the inaugural Honorary Laureate in 2007. The prize is awarded to former heads of state, who must have left office in the last three years. To be considered exceptional, the president or prime minister must have developed their country, strengthened democracy and human rights for their people and pave the way for “sustainable and equitable prosperity.”

KIENO KAMMIES: Underground water - how much is there?

As drought grips large parts of South Africa, the importance of groundwater as a secure source of water for domestic and agricultural needs has become clear. In February, Cape Town's dams were at 36% of their total capacity, down by nearly 7% from this time last year. If the water level falls below 20% it can no longer be pumped out. The City of Cape Town still finds itself on the fast track to having no useable water left in just over two months.

KIENO KAMMIES: Know your water: sustainable groundwater research

Whilst many people think of groundwater as an unlimited resource, groundwater does have a finite limit and needs to be managed sustainably to ensure future supply. Know Your Water, a sustainable groundwater research project – looks to develop a model that determines distribution of renewable groundwater resources in South Africa. Renewable groundwater reserves are those that have been recharged by rainfall in the last 50 years. Climate change will directly impact the amount of recharge and hence the model will also be able to predict vulnerability to climate change. Help contribute to a nationwide citizen science project to predict our groundwater's sustainability by determining how much of our groundwater is dependent on rainfall. Doing so, are 4 students at the University of Stellenbosch. Jaryd van Rooyen, one of the 4 and a Masters in Science student at Stellenbsoch University joins us on the line now…

KIENO KAMMIES: Prasa acting group CEO Colins Letsoalo allegedly increased his salary by 350%

Prasa's acting CEO Collins Letsoalo has been removed from his post amid allegations that he gave himself a 350% salary hike. On Sunday, the Sunday Times reported that just a month after his arrival at the passenger rail agency Letsoalo demanded the same R5.9 million package that former CEO Lucky Montana had received when his salary was meant to remain unchanged. Letsoalo has been at the helm at Prasa for about seven months, after being seconded by Transport Minister Dipuo Peters last July. The paper says in her second letter sent to Letsoalo, Peters makes it clear that the acting CEO's pay package of R1.3 million would not change but he would receive a 12% acting allowance. Letsoalo says this isn't true because he has an agreement with Prasa and a salary that has been approved by the board.

KIENO KAMMIES: Eyethu Hout Bay Skate Park

If you think back to when you grew up – and compare it to now, you will remember all the good clean fun you had with your friends around the neighbourhood – when our parents would let us out unsupervised until the sun went down. There is no doubt that we need safe public spaces – and we're not talking about malls… we talking about parks and open areas where children and teens can hang out and enjoy themselves… not just sitting at home in front of the TV or a smartphone. A few years ago, the community of Hout Bay came up with an idea for such an open space – and a seed was planted. And that was the start of what was to become the Eyethu Hout Bay Skate Park They're about to kick start their crowdfunding campaign to make this a reality… Additional info: Vicki wasn't there from the start but was sucked in about a year ago as it resonated with her – as her husband is a skater as is her son – and she considers herself a social philanthropist There are over 5000 youngsters in Hout Bay – so there is a definite need for such an area The skate park will be 900 metres and will allow for beginners to progress to advanced levels. The word “eyethu” is Nguni for “ours” - it is an affirmation of togetherness, and shared partnership or ownership Rotary also saw the opportunity and took it up – and by following the necessary processed took it to council and got land awarded for the project… http://eyethuskatepark.org.za/

The drive to save water and electricity continues. The goal is to save 20% by 2020. In February, Cape Town's dams were at 36% of their total capacity, down by nearly 7% from this time last year. If the water level falls below 20% it can no longer be pumped out. The city has implemented increasingly stringent restrictions. Residents have been calling into radio stations, sometimes to offer their solutions to dying lawns, sometimes to complain about their non-compliant neighbours. The restrictions have prompted criticism of the city's statements, including one in which informal settlements were blamed for being major water wasters, GroundUp reported.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: Innovation – OKAZI App

Okazi is Helping Businesses Leverage Employee Downtime Marlon Parker was inspired to pursue the idea when an employee at his nonprofit accelerator, RLabs, came to him saying he had extra time on his hands; at the same time, a business acquaintance of his needed someone to do data entry. South Africa has an employment problem. Not only are unemployment levels the highest they've been in ten years, they're also becoming increasingly volatile -- people are getting hired and laid off over shorter time periods, meaning that even once someone has a job, they are more likely to be laid off if work dries up. And the youth unemployment rate is even worse, with more than 50% of people under 24 out of work. But Marlon Parker, the co-founder of Okazi, thinks their team has a solution. Okazi is a platform for placing salaried workers who have extra availability at other companies temporarily. The client company pays the host company, and the host uses that money towards the worker's salary, allowing the employer to employ someone full-time that they may have otherwise been forced to lay off.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: South Africa ranks as best winter-sun destination for Northern Hemispherians

Unsurprisingly, the Western Cape gets a mention. "The country's most celebrated stretch of coastline is the glorious Garden Route. However in the other direction, a road trip through the Western Cape makes a rewarding alternative and the weather is particularly good in December and January," says Conte Nast Traveller.

for a Judicial commission of Inquiry into the banks after the Competition Commission found that 17 international and local banks colluded to manipulate foreign-currency trades and recommended some of them be fined 10% of their final turnover. Chairperson Kebby Maphatsoe said there has to be "harsher punishment" for corruption by the private sector. "The government must act decisively, we have been very polite when it comes to corruption by the private sector but when its corruption by government and ANC members everyone stands up as if a bomb has exploded somewhere," Maphatsoe said. The Competition Commission found that implicated banks including Absa, Standard Bank and Investec used Bloomberg chatrooms to enter into arrangements to fix prices of the dollar/rand exchange and divide the market by allocating customers since at least 2007.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: Premier Zille State of the Province Address

Premier Helen Zille says the province's precarious water situation could threaten economic progress in the Western Cape. Delivering her State of the Province Address on Friday, Zille said indications are that provincial water demands will exceed the current supply by 2019. Zille says that for the economy of the Western Cape to grow, the province also has to become more energy secure. Premier Helen Zille says national and provincial government are discussing major interventions to address water shortages in the province but all of these come at a hefty price. A desalination plant for Cape Town will cost at least R15 billion and operational costs could run up to a billion rand a year. This month the provincial government will also be launching a campaign to encourage businesses to switch to solar. Zille says the province will support the City of Cape Town in legal action to allow the municipality to purchase power from independent power producers.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: Health Feature: TB treatment

A Stellenbosch University (SU) researcher is involved in a large international study aimed at shortening TB treatment in the majority of patients. Prof Gerhard Walzl from SU's Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is part of the Predict-TB consortium which is developing a device that identifies patients whose TB can be cured after just four months of treatment, instead of the usual six months. Current treatment of TB is long, complicated to administer, and can have severe side-effects. To prevent recurrence of the disease after treatment is stopped patients undergoing treatment must take a combination of different antibiotics for at least six months– this often leads to improper adherence, which consequently can result in the development of multi-drug-resistant TB (MDR). Treatment for drug-resistant TB can take up to two years, and is yet more complex, expensive, and toxic. The staggering cost of curing MDR-TB poses a significant challenge to governments, health systems, and other payers – and still, many patients are unable to even access treatment. Among those who do receive treatment for MDR TB, only 50% survive.

We're glad to have been speaking to them from their early days – and are joined once again by founding director, Tim Conibear Additional info Since 2011, Waves for Change (W4C) has reached over 1000 children and helped over 50 coaches achieve qualifications and skills in surf coaching, lifesaving, child protection, trauma counselling and computer training.

With the N2 upgrade between Borcherds Quarry and the R300 nearing completion, one is anticipating that the traffic flow will be much improved… But this will mean cars will likely be travelling faster… and with so many pedestrians taking their chances and crossing the highway illegally, the chances of them being knocked down and killed or seriously injured – is high. More than 600 pedestrians killed every year in the Western Cape – that's 48% of all road fatalities, up from 43% two years ago. So why have the engineers not incorporated safety barriers in the median to prevent people from running across, and instead forcing them to use the many pedestrian bridges?

KIENO KAMMIES: International Childhood Cancer Day

KIENO KAMMIES: Sygnia Asset Management continues to make waves

You work hard for your money, but how hard is your money working for you? How should you invest it? Shares, unit trusts, index funds, policies, property, annuities or savings account? Have you got enough stashed away for a rainy day? Or for your retirement? A retirement annuity (RA) is private pension plan - an investment that is specifically designed to help you save for retirement. RAs function as a kind of “wrapper” that contains a number of investments in shares, property, bonds and cash. Some people say there isn't a Retirement Annuity in South Africa that is more cost-effective than Sygnia Asset Management. (In just seven years, Sygnia managed to secured over R100bn in assets under management – very impressive for a company that's relatively “young”.) Today we'll have the CEO of that company – Magda Wierzycka – in studio with us to talk all things finances. As her Twitter bio so succinctly explains, Wierzycka says she is “trying to change the financial services industry for the better, one educated investor at a time…” she joins us now! Additional information Magda qualified as a Fellow of the Faculty of Actuaries (Edinburgh) in 1994. She has over 20 years' experience in the South African asset management industry and has published widely in the field. She has also served as a board member of the Actuarial Society of South Africa. Since 2006 she has headed Sygnia as its CEO.Twitter: @Magda_Wierzycka https://www.sygnia.co.za/ 0860 794 642 (0860 SYGNIA) or admin@sfs.sygnia.co.za Magda Wierzycka needs little introduction in the fund management industry in South Africa after selling African Harvest Fund Managers to Cadiz in 2006. She led the buyout of the remainder of the group, which was the genesis of Sygnia Asset Management. Sygnia is an innovative FinTech company based in South Africa and listed on the main board of the JSE. The company provides asset management, stockbroking and administration services, as well as a wide range of savings products, to institutional and retail clients. All that we do is supported by leading-edge technology platforms. https://www.sygnia.co.za/our-company/overview Sygnia at a glance: • R158 billion in assets under management and administration • R14 billion in unit trusts since launch in 2012 • Over 600 institutional clients (domestic and international) • Over 6 000 individual clients • Offices in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban • Over 170 staff • Market disruptor business strategy • Focus on innovation through technology • Most cost-effective savings products in South Africa, with fees starting at 0.40% per annum • Level II contributor in terms of the Financial Sector Charter

KIENO KAMMIES: 'KwaFaku School could collapse at any time, say parents'

Parents and teachers at KwaFaku Primary School in New Crossroads say their pupils are sitting on a “ticking time bomb” as the facility, made of styrofoam, could collapse at any time, according to a report published on IOL. The report states that frustrated parents protested outside the school asking their children not to attend classes, citing health and safety reasons.They say the school is in a state of despair as the toilets are blocked, the roof leaks, ceilings are caving in and parts of the facility have already collapsed. The school was opened 17 years ago for experimental use, according to the teachers. They say the building material installed is outdated and could not be replaced as the school was only meant to be used for a short time. According to KwaFaku Primary School principal Maureen Figlan the facility was meant to be demolished earlier this year and pupils provided with mobile classes. “When we moved into this facility in 2000, there had already been defaults. The school was built for experimental purposes, not for a long term. That is why you see it collapsing this way. The material is irreparable. You can't find it anywhere,” she said. Figlan said the pupils' health was at risk due to the amount of dust they inhaled due to the open classes. “The fear that the parents are having is that they do not know when this will collapse. We don't want to have a situation similar to the Nigerian church collapse. The school was supposed to be demolished in January, and we are in the middle of February but we have not heard anything from the department,” she said. Community leaders say the protest was meant for one day, but had been extended after officials failed to address the issue yesterday. “We had anticipated we would shut down the school only for a day, but after seeing that no one cares, we will have to shut it down again. This is a matter of the life and health of our children,” one said. The department said construction was expected to start at the beginning of 2019. It said pupils would continue being accommodated in the current building, and would be moved when the new infrastructure was finished.

KIENO KAMMIES: Unabridged birth certificates / Robben Island Weddings

On Friday morning – we heard how many parents are panicking as they are trying to find places in schools for 2018 – and deadlines are looming for them to get their applications in. On yesterday's show we spoke to Jessica Shelver, the spokesperson for the Western Cape Education MEC Debbie Shafer, and she told us that school governing bodies can insist on unabridged birth certificates – as they want to ensure that in the event of one parent not paying the fees, that they can hold the other parent responsible. But we also have the problem of delays being experienced when parents have applied for the unabridged birth certificates… ALSO Today sees 20 couples saying “I do” at the chapel on Robben Island… and the department of Home Affairs have chosen those from less fortunate backgrounds…

He said the regulation was not new, but had been tightened to flush out companies that were flouting the law. “This has nothing to do with xenophobia, in fact xenophobic violence is what we want to prevent,” Gigaba said in an interview with the Cape Argus. “We must prioritise the employment of South Africans, and businesses across the board have to comply.”

KIENO KAMMIES: Why unabridged birth certificates are required for school

On Friday morning – we heard how many parents are panicking as they are trying to find places in schools for 2018 – and deadlines are looming for them to get their applications in. But schools have been asking for unabridged birth certificates, which a number of parents are struggling to obtain. This morning, we'll be asking why normal (abridged) birth certificates are not good enough, and also why there are these delays in the processing. ***at least there is light at the end of the tunnel – in that the DHA said last year that from now on, all new birth certificates issued will be unabridged.

KIENO KAMMIES: Redressing the inequality in SA through skills development & entrepreneurship

We spoke last week to Gerrit van der Merwe of ALG estates, who are behind a successful BEE project outside of Citrusdal. And it shows how with a bit of planning and investment, we can help smaller scale farmers, and other smaller players, take their operations to a new level and compete with the big players. These initiatives are important if we want to grow the economy and empower people who would otherwise need a lot more time (and resources) to find their place. Additional info: The Masisizane Fund (NPC) is an initiative of Old Mutual South Africa, with the mandate to contribute meaningfully to employment creation, poverty eradication and reduction of inequality, economic growth, and the attraction of investment. This is done through enterprise finance and support to Small, Micro and Medium Enterprises (SMMEs). The following sectors are focused on: Agriculture, manufacturing, supply chain, franchising, and commercial enterprise. For almost a decade, the Masisizane Fund has provided financial support to a number of promising business ventures. Some have gone on to become thriving businesses while others struggled to establish a foothold. Still others are on encouraging paths to sustainability and growth. Agri-Life is a 65% black-owned start-up company focusing on agro-processing. The company provides post-harvest value added services to fruit farmers in the Witzenberg region of the Western Cape, including its own BEE Emerging Farmers as shareholders. These BEE farmers have 4 farms employing 66 farm workers as direct beneficial owners. Agri-Life owns a state-of-the-art packing, grading and sorting facility dedicated primarily to packing fruits for export markets. Through strategic partnerships between local government and other businesses in commerce and industry as well as financial support from the Masisizane Fund, these emerging farmers now have access to ample factory space and world-class cold storage facilities. Besides loan funding, the businesses receive post investment support and mentoring from Masisizane and a business support grant from Old Mutual Foundation. Through this initiative, sustainable employment has been created with promising economic transformation prospects. Future expansion will provide more job opportunities for the rural town of Wolseley. The socio-economic impact of the emerging farmers' involvement and shareholding in Agri-Life has the potential to provide longer lasting benefits for the community, the current generation and beyond. As a Fund, Masisizane itself prides on providing ongoing and relevant business and financial support to clients addressing areas such as capacity development, business management and technical support, financial education, market/value chain development and product/service quality standards and compliance.

The panel said that this amount was an effort to help combat inequality and poverty in South Africa, while mitigating possible job losses.

KIENO KAMMIES: BEE citrus project bears fruit

Often we've heard from you (the listeners) that BEE can't be implemented and managed in South Africa and thus should be done away with… Well today I'm here to tell you about an agricultural Black Economic Empowerment project in the Western Cape that has bucked the trend and proved to be a great success! The Cedar Citrus project (based in the Upper Olifants River Valley, near Citrusdal) is a joint venture between 32 farm workers and their employer ALG Estates, with each party owning 50 per cent of the company. One of the brainchild's behind the project, Gerrit van der Merwe, tells us more about this initiative now… Additional information • It takes five years for a newly established citrus orchard to get into full production and ten years to make a profit on the initial capital outlay In their next move towards more financial independence, the workers jointly decided to plough back their profits and extended their operations by purchasing additional farmland to plant more citrus for the export market. Cedar Citrus (Pty) Ltd, a BEE citrus export company established in 1999, started making a profit in 2010, paid off its startup loan to the Industrial Development Council in 2012 and is now expanding its operations with the purchase of additional farmland. During 2015 the company exported 1500 tonnes of citrus from its production unit of 36ha, realising a total turnover of R12m for the year.

A number of listeners have been asking why cloud seeding is not being considered to bring much needed rains – where planes are sent up to release hygroscopic materials to encourage the formation of rain clouds… #WaterWatch Remember to visit the CapeTalk website and check out our special feature on water saving.

KIENO KAMMIES: Competition Commission probes motor industry “approved workshop” requirements

Has this happened to you? You desperately need to have your vehicle repaired, but an authorised dealer is just too expensive. So you take it to your local mechanic who does the job at half the price. The only problem now is, your insurer or manufacturer refuses to continue cover on your vehicle because you have not used an approved dealer? This is exactly what the Competition Commission is preparing to investigate. We are now joined by the commission's Sipho Ngwema to tell us about their probe into what they are calling “restrictive and exclusionary practices”. - When was this issue brought to the commission's attention and whow as behind it? - What is the first step that needs to be taken(the Commission has asked manufacturers, insurers, panelbeaters and parts suppliers to attend a workshop in March). - Overpricing is at the heart of the probe. Has any evidence been handed to the commission pointing to collusion to drive up service or parts prices? - Reports at the weekend also suggest that there is a racial tint to this matter with a black owned business in Ladysmith saying they were overlooked only for a white-owned business to benefit? Is this forming part of the probe? - The National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa however say they have a responsibility to protect customers' interests and safeguard brand value. How does this factor into the investigation? - Has any time frame been placed on the investigation?

KIENO KAMMIES: Tax Administration Laws Amendment Bill & the role of the Tax Ombudsman

Are you at your wits' end because the South African Revenue Service (SARS) can't provide a satisfactory answer to a query? Perhaps you're due to receive a tax refund, but, for some unknown reason, the amount is never paid into your bank account. The office of the Tax Ombud provides you with a fair and simple way to seek a resolution for a service, procedure or administrative dispute you have already unsuccessfully tried to resolve through SARS. The Office of the Tax Ombud is independent of SARS and complaints to the Tax Ombud can concern any type of tax (not only personal income tax but all types of taxpayers – individuals, trusts, businesses – can approach the ombud for relief). This morning we have one of their advocates in studio to talk about the Tax Administration Laws Amendment Bill and to answer your questions… Additional information • Contact the Tax Ombud on 0800 662 837 or 012 431 9105. Email to complaints@taxombud.gov.za Complaint forms can be downloaded from the Tax Ombud's website, www.taxombud.gov.za, which sets out the procedures for lodging a complaint. The office was established in October 2013 in terms of the Tax Administration Act. Its mandate is to provide redress for taxpayers who are unable to resolve a complaint with SARS. It is important to understand that you can complain to the Tax Ombud only once you have exhausted SARS's internal complaints-handling mechanisms. SARS's formal complaints-resolution mechanism is called the Complaints Management Office (CMO). You must obtain confirmation that the CMO received your complaint, as well as a reference number. If the CMO does not resolve the complaint to your satisfaction within 21 working days, you can complain to the Tax Ombud's office. Apart from the requirement to try first to resolve a complaint with SARS, the Tax Ombud is mandated to address only certain types of complaints. These have to do with poor service, or if you believe that SARS did not follow its own procedures, or did not apply the provisions of any tax law correctly. AMENDMENTS IN THE PIPELINE: Tax Administration Laws Amendment Bill. Proposals aimed at enhancing the independence and effectiveness of the Tax Ombud have been included in the draft Tax Administration Laws Amendment Bill. The proposed amendments to the Tax Administration Act provide for: • The Tax Ombud to be appointed for a term of five, instead of three, years. The term may be renewed, as is currently the case. Judge Bernard Ngoepe told Personal Finance that his office's request for the term to be extended was based on a study of similar institutions within and outside South Africa, which found that, in most cases, ombuds were appointed for five years. The longer term will make it easier to recruit people with the right qualifications to the position, he says. • The Tax Ombud to employ staff without having to obtain the consent of the Commissioner of the South African Revenue Service (SARS), as is currently the case. • The Tax Ombud to control its own budget, which is approved by the Minister of Finance. Currently, the expenditure connected with the running of the office is paid out of SARS's funds. • The mandate of the Tax Ombud be extended to include the investigation and review, at the request of the Minister of Finance, of any systemic issue related to SARS's service, the application of the Tax Administration Act, or the procedural or administrative provisions of a tax law. Judge Ngoepe said his office had requested that it be empowered to conduct such investigations on its own initiative. But, because of fears that this could result in it abusing its powers, the proposal requires the minister to request the investigation. • If SARS or a taxpayer does not accept a recommendation by the Tax Ombud, they must provide the Tax Ombud with reasons for rejecting the recommendation. Decisions by the Tax Ombud are not binding on either the taxpayer or SARS. Currently, either party can reject a recommendation without having to provide a reason for doing so. In its explanatory memorandum, National Treasury says the proposed amendment will enable the Tax Ombud “to review the reasonableness of the reasons, to inform future action”.

KIENO KAMMIES: How Hotel Verde deals with water savings

As you may have gathered – water saving in light of water restrictions – is a major theme on the breakfast show. We've decided to focus on how various hotels (in and around the City)are conserving our precious water. In the CBD, The Townhouse Hotel has included buckets in each room and is encouraging guests to shower with a bucket meanwhile Tsogo Sun have started several water-saving practices in their hotels – notifying guests of restrictions, info-cards in bathrooms, amending their towel/sheet replacement, low-pressure showerheads & slow flow taps etc Today we'll hear from Hotel Verde - Greenest hotel in Africa where you can reportedly expect a total carbon-neutral experience… Additional information http://www.hotelverde.com/ https://www.facebook.com/hotelverdect/timeline/?ref=hl https://www.instagram.com/hotel_verde/ https://twitter.com/HotelVerde • The wind turbines, which contribute a minimum of 14% of the hotel's electricity requirements, hint at the hotel's impressive green rating. Other energy efficiency initiatives include a geothermal field heating system coupled to pumps, a vegetated green roof, double glazed windows, occupancy sensors and photovoltaic panels. • In fact, the hotel has embodied sustainable practices and principles since conception. It was built and designed with sustainability and efficiency at its core rather than as an afterthought. 50% of the materials used for construction were sourced locally while 28% of construction material comprises recycled content. • It's also the first hotel in Africa to achieve the Platinum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification level, as assigned by the United States Green Building Council. Moreover, Hotel Verde won the Imvelo Award 2014 by Lilizela for Best Overall Environmental Management System and the World Responsible Tourism Award 2014 by World Travel Market, London for Best City Hotel. • Every Wednesday evening, Hotel Verde hosts an Earth Hour celebration. All non-essential lights and appliances are switched off and guests enjoy dinner and live music by candlelight and solar-powered light jars. A specially prepared menu that requires no electricity to make, including braaied fare and wood-fired oven pizzas, is offered. Then, every last Wednesday of the month, Earth Hour becomes a night market and guests (both those staying at the hotel and other casual visitors) can enjoy a delectable range of sustainably produced food, craft beer, and wine while perusing art and crafts created by responsible traders, and listening to live music. 021 380 5500/ info@hotelverde.com Address 15 Michigan Street

KIENO KAMMIES: The Department of Homeland Security suspends immigration in the US

About a week ago Trump decided that those travelling with passports from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Yemen, Sudan and Somalia would not be allowed to enter the USA. Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security suspended all enforcement of the immigration ban signed into effect by President Donald Trump. Immigrants will be once more be allowed into the US from the seven countries affected by the executive order last month: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Yemen, Sudan and Somalia.

KIENO KAMMIES: New law surrounding paramedic training sparks fear of fewer trained paramedics

With a new law ensuring that paramedic training is only done at universities may potentially leading to fewer skilled paramedics being trained. It ends the use of six-week (basic life support paramedic training), six-month (intermediate life support paramedic training) and nine-month (advanced life support paramedic training) courses and on-thejob experience to train paramedics. Now those wanting to train as a basic life-support paramedic will have to do a two-year course, with those wanting to become advanced life-support paramedics needing a four-year degree. This makes it especially difficult for those who cannot afford to study full-time at universities to join the profession.

KIENO KAMMIES: A lost continent discovered under Mauritius

It sounds unbelievable, but a new study headed by Wits University geologist Professor Lewis Ashwal has confirmed the existence of a “lost continent” under Mauritius.

KIENO KAMMIES: Cape Town History: A day in the life of the Noon gun operator

Every day at 12pm sharp this happens... A big boom from Signal Hill that can be heard all the way in Woodstock. For many of us that's the signal to get up and go have lunch. (But for others unfamiliar with Cape Town's oldest living tradition – that big bang can really make you “skrik” and wonder what's happening). The tradition behind the noon gun is said to have started during the 19th century, when it was scarce to have the accurate time and therefore, all came to rely on the gun for the accurate time. Travellers from Cape Town were often asked if they had the correct ‘gun-time' as the Noon Day firing was accepted as the ultimate accurate time. Did you know the noon gun even has a Twitter page (which posts BOOM every day like clockwork)? This morning we'll be speaking to a noon gun operator, Petty officer Alistair Maasdorp, … Additional information There is one exception regarding the non-firing on Sundays – The Gun Run. The Gun Run is an annual half-marathon that takes place in the city. The race ends at noon and the gun is fired as a signal to those who have not crossed the finish line that they have not completed the race in the pre-requisite qualifying time. https://twitter.com/signal_hill_gun DAILY ROUTINE: • 11h30 – Remove tampions • 11h35 – Check bores clear • 11h40 – Load both guns • 11h45 – Clear the gun deck • 11h50 – Prime the guns • 11h55 – Raise flag BRAVO • 11H59 – Begin countdown • 12h00 – Fire • 12h02 – Unload stand – by gun • 12h03 – Down flag BRAVO

The last time we spoke to Mark Barnes from the South African Postal Service – we talked about a turn around strategy which he was in the process of putting in place. At that time the office had lost about R1.3 Billion and various branches had to be closed for various reasons and their situation was being made worse by the lack of customers. Since then the SAPO has submitted documents to parliament to formally register their financial services unit – Postbank. They are hoping to achieve this by July 3rd, 2017.

THE MONEY SHOW: Big Five things you did not know about Afriforum's parent company, Solidariteit

1. AfriForum is a constituent part of the larger Solidarity Movement, which grew out of the trade union Solidarity. It was the successor to the Mynwerkersunie (MWU), an all-white union established after the Anglo Boer War / South African War to look after the rights of unskilled Afrikaner miners. 2. Flip Buys was the leader of the MWU when it changed its name to Solidariteit in the late 1990's, after new labour legislation made the existence of an all-white union impossible. 3. AfriForum was established in 2006 as an organisation nominally committed to the preservation of minority rights. It however solely focuses on the rights of Afrikaners, particularly language, cultural and safety. 4. AfriForum's leader, Kallie Kriel, was a member of the Conservative Party during the early 1990's, but left it because the CP under Andries Treurnicht, who refused to take part in the negotiation process, "was not the right vehicle to ensure self-determination (a volkstaat) for the Afrikaner. 5. AfriForum has tapped into white fears, specifically around affirmative action, transformation and crime, and boast more than 186 000 members (membership is R50 minimum per monthly debit order. That's a large war chest.) 6. AfriForum covers almost every aspect of civic society, and has for example established its own university (Akademia) offering B.Com and related degrees, as well its own residence at the University of Pretotoria, called De Goede Hoop, named after Jan van Riebeeck's castle in Cape Town. It has a large Afrikaans media wing, including a very popular website (www.maroelamedia.co.za)www.maroelamedia.co.za as well as a radio station (Pretoria FM) that syndicates news and other programming to more than 20 Afrikaans community stations around the country. 7. Solidarity hosted a "crisis summit" in 2015 at the Voortrekker Monument, where its leadership said self-determination is an idea that is on the table again. 7. AfriForum has in the past referred to apartheid as a "so-called historical injustice" and "a woolly concept".

KIENO KAMMIES: Mills Soko appointed as UCT GSB’s new director

It's always interesting to see new moves or appointments in the business sector – even across business schools. Last year we heard the news that Associate Professor Mills Soko has been appointed Director of the UCT Graduate School of Business (GSB), to take effect at the beginning of the 2017 academic year. (He has taken over from Professor Walter Baets, who left the GSB at the end of July 2016.) The school is widely regarded the top school in Africa and is currently one of just three business schools on the continent to be triple crowned (meaning that it has been endorsed by the world top three accreditation bodies). So he has a lot riding on him. This morning we will hear from the man himself. Good morning Prof Soko – welcome to the show! Additional information Mills Soko earned his undergraduate degree in Social Sciences from the University of Cape Town (UCT) in 1992. Soon thereafter he worked for a year as a research assistant with UCT's Equal Opportunities Research Project. From 1994 to 1995 he was employed by the Institute for Democracy in South Africa as a researcher on parliamentary affairs, monitoring and preparing reports on the work of parliamentary committees in South Africa's first democratic national legislature. In 1996, he joined the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) – the upper house of the South African Parliament – as a researcher to the Select Committee on Trade and Industry, Foreign Affairs, and Public Enterprises. During this period he completed a Master's degree in International Studies through the University of Stellenbosch. This was followed by his appointment as Head of Policy and Legislative Research in the NCOP, where he oversaw and coordinated the work of committee researchers. Subsequently he resumed his academic studies and obtained a Master's degree in International Political Economy from the University of Warwick. In 2004, he completed a doctoral thesis on the political economy of trade policy reform in post-apartheid South Africa at the same university. In addition to being a veteran academic with a PhD from Warwick University in the UK on the political economy of trade policy reform in post-apartheid South Africa, he has held leadership positions both in government (as a senior policy adviser) and in the business sector through his involvement in the International Chamber of Commerce and Africa Business Network. In addition, he was commissioner on the Warwick Commission on the Future of World Trade and is a member of the Evian Group, a think-tank affiliated to the IMD business school and dedicated to promoting an open, integrated and equitable global economic order. In the NGO sector he has previously served as chairperson of the board of trustees of Inyathelo (South African Institute of Advancement) and chaired a working group on education and employment under the auspices of the Africa-Germany Partnership, an initiative of the former President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Horst Köhler. He is a research associate of both the South African Institute of International Affairs and the Institute for Global Dialogue, the former deputy chairperson of the editorial board of New Agenda and a member of the editorial boards of Global Governance and Africa Growth Agenda.

KIENO KAMMIES: How is government making housing available to those with lower income?

On Tuesday's show, we spoke to property expert Steven Delit, who says that property prices are on an upward trend thanks to the desire by many to buy property in Cape Town. On the flip side, this means that affordable housing becomes more and more out of reach for people in the lower income brackets, or for young families wanting to move into their own homes. What is government doing to try and balance the forces of demand – and make housing more within the grasp of ordinary Capetonians.

KIENO KAMMIES: Cape Town company makes sought-after GT40 replicas

On yesterday's show, we went down memory lane and spoke about classic cars that are enjoying a new lease of life thanks to the niche market of replica cars. The one car that's stood the test of time is the Ford GT40, which is being made here in Cape Town (Muizenberg) by Cape Advanced Vehicles. They are just one of five companies around the world that makes these replica cars, but they have taken things to another level. One of their advantages is that they are casting parts from the ORIGINAL molds for the GT40. Jordi Reddy is the CEO of Cape Advanced Vehicles and he joins us now Additional info: The reason the original molds have stood the test of time is because they make so few of these vehicles – BUT they won't last forever so they have started making plans for new molds. One of the characteristics of the molds is that they are asymmetrical – as they were all made by hand back in the days before CAD… but that's what makes them more sought after as well; They can't put in airbags – because regulations say they don't make enough cars in a year (very strange – but there you go) www.cav.co.za @CAV_GT

KIENO KAMMIES: Power Plastics Poolcovers – no deliveries yet?

Last year we featured a company that provides plastic pool covers in order for your pool to be more “water restriction” friendly. They advertise that “All our pool covers reduce water evaporation by over 98%. Evaporation losses over one summer season add up to a staggering amount of wasted water. With South Africa's drought and resulting water crisis, pool covers are no longer an accessory, rather a necessity. Covering your pool is the right thing to do!” A number of listeners have phoned in saying that they ordered pool covers, but they have been waiting for months for them to be delivered and when enquiring – no one ever gets back to them? They join us on the line now to tell us exactly what is going on….

KIENO KAMMIES: Caller: Jenni Trethowan of Baboon Matters

She wants to help some injured baboons, especially a badly burned baby baboon but is getting resistance from Cape Nature and SPCA. Additional: Baboon Matters To all our friends tonight I am asking all of you for your urgent support. You have seen the news of the Da Gama fires, the updates from the City of Cape Town and HWS. You will have seen the reports that stated 80% of the home range had burnt, but that DESPITE this huge burn, there was enough food and water for the Da Gama troop. You read the report that the injured juveniles were doing well - including the last report where SPCA inspectors had accompanied HWS and the CoCT vet and declared the juvie were displaying normal behaviour and were being carried by the mothers. FACT CHECK when juvies of that age are being carried it is because they are ill or injured - NOT because they are doing well. FACT CHECK the baboons are being pushed onto denuded, severely burnt land daily since the fires - how would those injured juvenile find food and water? FACT CHECK I asked to accompany the SPCA on the visit to check on the injured baboons and I was not allowed to as the baboons are "skittish"; but the FACT is that the baboons come into Da Gama Park every evening when the monitors go off duty and roam freely amongst residents, so why is Baboon Matters kept away? Why was Baboon Matters LIED to - we were told that the injured juveniles were receiving medication daily (the medication being hidden in bread...that the rest of the troop did not take from the injured youngsters.. what RUBBISH!!!) One week after the fires, the little girl Phoenix baboon is hanging weakly on her mothers back, not moving except to occassionly suck at her badly burnt fingers. She did not get off her mother once, and from her limp, fluffed out state I do not expect her to survive. I hope I am wrong. My rage, is centered on the pain that little girl Phoenix must be feeling - pain that could have been averted - and would have been if she had been born a porcupine or tortoise or grysbuck. But because little girl Phoenix is a baboon she got NO treatment and instead a huge cover up about the state of her health. I am quite frankly appalled by behaviour of City of Cape Town, SPCA and HWS and so so sad by what I witnessed tonight. There is little chance that little Phoenix can be saved now, her little troop mate is limping along and should survive, but Phoenix has had little food or water in the 7 days since the fire and is barely moving now.......... Please folks support my move that BABOON MATTERS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO SEE THE BABOONS

KIENO KAMMIES: Driving lessons to be included in South African school curriculum

It's a long time coming but driving lessons will reportedly FINALLY be included in the South Africa curriculum through a partnership between the Road Traffic Infringement Agency and the Department of Basic Education. Speaking at the Soshanguve East Secondary School recently, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters said that the announcement was part of a long term initiative to curb the carnage on our roads and enhance road safety. According to Peters, the provision of a driving simulators programme will be implemented during the 2017/18 financial year. The Department of Transport is in the process of finalising the Graduated Driving License framework. Additional information “We also have a partnership with the department of basic education to ensure the inclusion of road safety in the curriculum and the training of teachers. This essentially entails different aspects of road safety awareness which are intended to adequately skill new drivers,” Peters added. “I have no doubt that road safety education that starts at an early age should be one of the core focus areas in assisting us to turn the tide as far as road deaths are concerned. Formal education and training will remain important, but we must also broaden our minds and find ways to include road safety messages into the wider curriculum, into mathematics and science, geography and civic education,” Peters said.

Over the past few weeks we have seen a flurry of reports based on newly qualified medical doctors and pharmacists that are unemployed because government hasn't placed them in positions for internships or community service work. However, Min of Health Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, says one of the biggest problems facing his department is medical students who decline internships based on location. According to EWN - Motsoaledi says that the department has been using a new system to ensure that doctors are placed based on community needs and not on preference. The minister says there's a problem in the country because many medical interns prefer to be placed in the big cities - Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban. "They reasons range from marriage to medical conditions. But the department is not always in the position to accommodate all these demands." Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, joins us on the line now to discuss this issue…

We want a Facebook official relationship every one can like and comment on, we want the social media post that wins #relationshipgoals. We want a date for Sunday morning brunch, someone to commiserate with during the drudge of Mondaze, a Taco Tuesday partner, someone to text us good morning on Wednesday. We want a plus one for all the weddings we keep getting invited to (how did they do it? How did they find their happily ever after?). But we are the generation who doesn't want a relationship.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH SAM AND AFRICA: Masterclass: Planet Earth II

When the first Planet Earth series came out a decade ago, it transformed how viewers saw their planet. It captivated a global audience of over half a billion people by giving them an unprecedented view of live on Planet Earth. Now 10 years on, advances in filming technology have made it possible for filmmakers to reveal the natural world in entirely new ways, going further, getting closer and capturing behaviour and places that would have been impossible 10 years ago. Dr. Fredi Devas is a wildlife filmmaker who cares deeply about the natural world and the challenges it faces. After completing a PhD on Chacma baboons in Namibia, Fredi did research on the bushmeat trade in Equatorial Guinea and then spent time living in the San bushmen in Southern Africa. Having worked on Meerkat Manor and Nick Baker's Weird Creatures, he joined the BBC to work on Frozen Planet and then Wild Arabia. He's been lucky enough to film polar bears feasting on a whale carcass, camel racing with robotic jockeys, and be surrounded by nearly half a million King penguins. On Planet Earth II, he decided to leave the wildernesses behind to produce and direct the ‘Cities' episode. Highlights included filming langurs and macaques in India, and hyenas roaming the streets in Ethiopia, where he was struck by the harmonious relationship between people and the potentially dangerous animals they shared their cities with.

KIENO KAMMIES: Very successful December for Cape Town tourism

2016 might have been an average year for many, but for Cape Town tourisms is has proven to be one for the books! The figures for visitor traffic at Cape Town International Airport and at the city's major attractions in December 2016 are out, and it's good news all round. Not only did Kirstenbosch, Groot Constantia and Cape Point enjoy a record-breaking month, expectations were exceeded. December 2016 arrivals breakdown: Domestic arrivals = 398,245 (3% increase) Regional arrivals = 8,795 (1% decrease) International arrivals = 84,493 (29% increase) Total arrivals = 522,659 (8% increase) Enver Duminy, CEO of Cape Town Tourism joins us on the line now… Additional info: Visitor numbers to the attractions in brief: Robben Island Museum: There were 49 738 visitors to the Island this past festive season, 4% more than in December 2015. Kirstenbosch experienced a record December with the most visitors in a month. December figures = 118,699, a 6% increase YOY. The second best performing month in their history was December 2014 with 116,986 visitors. YOY growth = 6% Groot Constantia experienced a record December with 79000 visitors, a 25% increase on December 2015. However, total visitors for the year amounted to 405,088, a 3% decrease YOY. Cape Point also experienced a record December with 129,039 visitors, a 15% increase YOY. Their second busiest month was in October 2016, with 113,709 visitors. Total visitors for 2016 amounted to 1,095,270, a 23% increase YOY. Table Mountain received 150,201 visitors in December 2016, a 0.3% increase YOY. Their 2016 total visitor figures = 1,102,189, a 14% increase YOY. Even in cases where December figures were slightly lower, the attractions posted fantastic annual figures reflecting growth up from 2015. Waterfront had a 1% decrease in visitors YOY for December. However, for 2016 in total, they had almost 1 million more visitors than 2015. The Watershed and Aquarium visitor numbers have increased in 2016 and this could explain the decrease in visitors to the Waterfront

KIENO KAMMIES: New Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) in Cape Town

With the reshuffle of the MAYCO members being announced on Monday, the City of Cape Town can look forward to a number of changes. On such change is the portfolio of Cllr Brett Heron, who has started to implement the new Transport and Urban Development Authority. According to the COCT - The new Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) brings together the pivotal functions associated with the long-term sustainability of Cape Town and those who live and work here, namely: transport, spatial planning and urban development, the management of our environmental resources, and affordable housing. With the amalgamation of these functions under one authority, the City can align its policies and strategies to be more responsive, resilient and dynamic in dealing with the challenges we are currently facing. This sounds like a lot of jargon, to break it down for us… Brett Heron joins us on the line….

KIENO KAMMIES: Car warning systems – temp gauge

After weeks of silence, Ford finally announced on Monday that they would be recalling their vehicles. Ford CEO Jeff Nemeth yesterday told us on air that it took longer to make this decision because they had to do investigations to find out what caused the fires. In December last year, Ford SA confirmed that the risk of its Kuga SUV catching fire was confined to a particular model - the 1.6-litre EcoBoost and was “possibly” as a result of engine overheating. (As such the vehicle's coolant system would need to be checked out. “Dealers will check the coolant concentration level and for any leaks or damage to the cooling system‚ plus conduct cooling system pressure tests‚” Ford SA spokesman Rella Bernardes told Times Live at that time. So we decided to hear from the former technical editor at Car magazine, Jake Venter, for more…

KIENO KAMMIES: Latest about learner placements in Western Cape Schools

About a week ago, the provincial education department announced that more than one million pupils are expected to fill classrooms across the Western Cape in 2017. Education MEC Debbie Schafer said in a statement that most preparations for the new academic year were completed well before the end of 2016. Officials were also working around the clock to accommodate late enrolments and pupils who had not yet been placed, she said. With a week of school down, are most of these pupils being accommodated in schools, or are many still without a placement for 2017? Spokesperson for the MEC of education in the Western Cape, Jessica Shelver, joins us on the line now…

KIENO KAMMIES: Water desalination – why are we not doing it?

One of the biggest threats facing Cape Town now numbering 3.7 million people, is running out of water, despite the current restrictions imposed on water usage. Surely South Africa's 3,000-kilometer coastline could support a whole fleet of eco-friendly desalination plants that will solve the country's water shortages and produce a new industry? Why is SA not looking at desalination as the answer to the water crisis? Prof Neil Armitage, Head of Department Urban Water Management at UCT, joins us on the line to discuss this...

KIENO KAMMIES: Fire investigations & arson

Fires are devastating for fauna, flora and everyone in its path and it seems like every day Cape Town is struck by yet another fire – with the latest being the Vredehoek/Deer Park blaze on Tuesday night. The Vredehoek/Deer Park fire came hot on the heels of a fire on Signal Hill and just days after firefighters managed to suppress massive fires in Simon's Town and the Helderberg. Many of you said the spate of fires were suspicious and the handiwork of an arsonist or two. In fact, over the weekend saw a 14-year-old boy identified as a suspected arsonist in the fire along Signal hill after community members identified him as the person who started the fires near the old zoo in that area. This morning we'll here from a representative of the City's investigative unit for more… Additional information Fires must be reported to the City's Public Emergency Communication Centre by dialling 021 480 7700 from a cellphone or 107 from a landline. Between 1 November 2016 and 12 January 2017, the City's Fire and Rescue Service responded to 5 465 fires – an average of 75 a day. Of these, just shy of 80% were classified as bush, grass or rubbish fires. The City of Cape Town has a firefighting complement of approximately 900 permanent staff members, with between 210 and 250 on shift at the City's 30 fire stations at any given time. In addition, 120 seasonal firefighters are employed over the summer months and aerial firefighting support is available in the form of two helicopters and a spotter plane. The City's Disaster Risk Management Centre is another key player in fire suppression, courtesy of its volunteer corps. The City also works closely with other agencies like Table Mountain National Park, Working on Fire and the Volunteer Wildfire Service. Where required, the City can also call on neighbouring municipalities for assistance and vice versa. City firefighters are still monitoring hotspots after the latest fire in Vredehoek/Deer Park last night. Approximately 160 City firefighters with 15 fire engines, four water tankers, five bush tenders and six skid units and support staff, assisted by 70 Table Mountain National Park staff with water tankers and skid units, battled gale-force winds and walls of flames throughout the night to safeguard lives and property. A number of residents opted to evacuate of their own accord. While assessments must still be completed, initial estimates are that there has been structural damage in the region of R4,5 million to four structures. Firefighters were also dealing with a large vegetation fire in the wetlands adjacent to Masiphumelele at the same time yesterday. Tips for preventing wildfires: · It is an offence to toss a burning cigarette butt from vehicles or anywhere else · The sale, distribution and discharge of fireworks without a valid permit is an offence · Fire-wise your garden by limiting flammable vegetation species. You will need to reduce the growth of fire-loving vegetation (usually invasive alien plants) in and around your property by cutting and trimming on a regular basis · Avoid slash-and-burn or bush-clearing activities on high-risk days – you have to have a burning permit or prior authorisation · Make sure that fire hydrants are clear and available for emergency services access · Only braai in safe and designated areas and always put out recreational or cooking fires immediately after use – never leave them unattended · Use heating, cooking or lighting devices safely – use on a stable platform and not near flammable substances of any kind · When camping, extinguish candles, open fires and cigarettes before going to sleep · Always keep matches, lighters, paraffin and poisonous substances out of the reach of children · Make a proper firebreak between your home and nearby vegetation to protect your property · Use safety caps on all poisonous or flammable substances containers

KIENO KAMMIES: Three South African billionaires wealth equal to lower half of the SA wealth

Equality is expected to be a huge focus at the forum following a report released by charity organisation Oxfam – suggesting that the eight wealthiest people in the world have the wealth of half the world. In South Africa - The wealth of three South African billionaires is equal to that of the bottom half of the country's population The report, entitled ‘An economy for the 99%', coincides with the upcoming 47th World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos. Using data from the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report 2016, Oxfam said that this inequality is more pronounced in South Africa as the richest 1% of the country's population have 42%, or $272bn (R3.7tr), of the total wealth of $650bn. The wealth of the richest 10% also accounted for 31% of total wealth, or $202bn (R2.8tr), according to Oxfam. The remaining 90% of the population only account for $175.5bn (R2.4tr) of the country's wealth.

KIENO KAMMIES: DTI on local chicken sector

Yesterday morning, we had a sobering conversation with the MD of RCL Foods, Scott Pitman on the news that the company formerly known as Rainbow Chicken will be closing 15 of their KZN farms and retrenching 1 350 workers from the end of this month. The news is worrying since Rainbow Chicken is one of South Africa's biggest chicken producers. In fact, during that conversation yesterday, Mr Pitman told us that despite the fact that their poultry has never had bird flu, they've not been able to export even one kilogram of chicken over the last ten years. So we wanted to know, what the DTI is doing to protect (and promote) the local chicken industry – especially with regard to the high rate of unemployment in SA… Additional information Pitman said European countries consumed mainly “white portions” (the breast), which they deemed to be the best cut. The “brown portions” (the thighs and drumsticks) were then sold off at cut price - finding their way to developing world markets such as South Africa, where they were sold cheaper than what was locally produced.

Additional info: The four “mini-mayors” are Suzette Little, Eddie Andrews, Anda Ntsdo, and Siya Mamkeli Transport and Urban Development Authority: Cllr Brett Herron Cllr Finance: Cllr Johan van der Merwe Cllr Van der Merwe Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services; Energy: Cllr Xanthea Limberg Assets and Facilities Management: Cllr Stuart Diamond Social Services; and Safety and Security: Alderman JP Smith Ald.

KIENO KAMMIES: Ford Kuga recall - consumer commission responds

Ford South Africa CEO Jeff Nemeth says that a voluntary safety recall for all Kuga's 1.6l vehicles has been issued and that the vehicles must be taken to a dealer as soon as possible. The safety recall is limited to vehicles manufactured between December 2012 and February 2014. In the most recent incident, a Kuga burst into flames on Saturday morning on the M1 highway. It was the second incident in just three days, after another Kuga caught fire on Thursday. The two incidents, which brings the number of Kugas that have caught alight to 46, have fuelled panic among owners, who fear for their safety. Despite these incidents, Ford South Africa has yet to issue a recall on the affected Kugas. We hear from the National Consumer Commission now for a response to the recall… Additional information More than four dozen Ford Kugas in South Africa have caught fire since last year. In December, Ford South Africa requested that all local Kuga owners take their vehicle in for a safety inspection. In December 2015, Reshall Jimmy died when his Kuga burst into flames. Since the passing of her brother, his sister Renisha has launched a campaign to raise awareness, to gather the victims and bring Ford to recall all cars and save lives. So far, they have found about 45 cases and the majority of those affected had agreed to bring a class-action lawsuit against Ford SA. She said they took about 30 of these cases to the Motor Industry Ombudsman. Here's what you need to know: 1. Cars affected All Ford Kuga 1.6 vehicles manufactured between 2012 and 2014 are being affected by the safety recall. Owners of affected vehicles are urged to contact their nearest Ford dealer. Customers can find out more by calling 0860-011-022. Any driver who observes any sign of overheating should immediately pull over as soon as it is safe and evacuate its passengers. Ford's Roadside Assistance service is available to help 24/7. The number is 0861-150-250 Ford SA said on Monday it would work with insurance companies and their customers to handle this issue. For cars that weren't insured - or owners who don't want them anymore - Nemeth has said it would deal with such cases individually.
