Fighting for Freedom, Fairness & Opportunity. United in Our Diversity. One SA for All.
Welcome to our Ward 23 JHB South website.
I like happy residents and a beautiful community and that is my constant fight. I can't do it alone and depend on each resident to be proactive, take responsibility, report issues correctly to get resolution and to be part of making our Ward 23 great.
If you feel that something should be posted on our website to inform residents please send me a note - see my 'Contact Us' page or send me a WhatsApp message. I look forward to working with all our residents to make a difference in Our Community.

This is under clinical conditions. Its prob shorter than this in real life.
The Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Ebrahim Patel has announced that all businesses that will be allowed to provide essential services are required to seek approval from the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic) in order for them to trade during the period of the lockdown in terms of the regulations published today by the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Ms Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma in Regulation Gazette No. 11062
Such businesses are required to apply to the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) Bizportal website at Essential Services Application Portal and obtain a certificate from the Commission that allows them to continue trading. The Bizportal website will contain a menu icon listed as “Essential Service Businesses” through which an application can be made to the CIPC.
The application will be a simple declaration requiring minimal registration details, type of business/trade involved in, what trading name if any is used an d whether it meets the requirements contained in the essential services list, the contact details of the person applying as well as the number of employees that will be working during the lockdown period.
The CIPC registry will then pre-populate the remaining company information and email a certificate stating that the business is allowed to remain trading.
The certificate can then be used as evidence to authorities requiring same that indeed the business has been given government permission to trade and that its employees are able to have unrestricted movement ONLY in the course of that trade.
It should be stressed and noted that if you make a false application to the CIPC, and are indeed not an essential service as per the government regulations, such will be taken as a fraudulent application and will render yourself as applicant liable to criminal prosecution and sanction.
This service will be available tomorrow morning 26 March 2020 at the start of business trading hours.

@CleanerJoburg @JoburgParksZoo @CityofJoburgZA @mphomoerane As ward Cllr I wasn’t informed that this was happening, I had to hear it from my RESIDENTS!!! Mass gathering, lots of cars, no social distancing and no hand sanitizer on site. Putting people’s lives at risk! @LeahK28 @go2girlwendy @MichaelSun168
@ArnoldsMmc @mphomoerane @GeoffMakhubo You come into my ward without informing me with over 50 people gathering at the Vorster spruit putting people lives at risk for what? This blatant disregard of protocol by the ANC administration is disgraceful! @LeahK28 @go2girlwendy @MichaelSun168
@SprchrgdCabbage @uhuru_thami And it's not like they are subtle or the illegal connections to traffic lights and street lights are unnoticeable.
