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.

You *can still collect your grant* during the lockdown. To try and stop the spread of the coronavirus, SASSA is helping people *avoid crowds*.

*Payment will be as follows:*

🧓🏽 *30 and 31 March: Old Age and Disability grants will be paid.* This is ahead of the rest of the grants so that the elderly and those with a disability don’t have to stand in long queues. Less people will then have to queue at grant payment centres later (SAPO, Postbank, Merchants, commercial banks, pay points, etc.).

👪 *1 April onwards: Child Support, Foster Care, War Veterans and other grants will be paid.*

⏰ *If you are able to wait a bit longer before you collect your grant, please do, so you can protect yourself and others from the coronavirus.* (Grants are in your account for at least three months from the date of payment.)

🆔 + 💳 *Carry your ID and your SASSA card or bank card* (for those who do not use the SASSA card).

🚍 From Monday, 30 March to Friday, 3 April, *buses and taxis can run* from 05h00-20h00 (more information to follow).

*Let us work together to stop the spread of the coronavirus!*

🧼 *Wash your hands with soap and water* as much as you can.
💪🏾 Cough and sneeze into a *flexed elbow*.
🤦‍♀ *Don't touch your face*.
📏 Leave a *1m space* between you and the next person in the queue.
🏠 *Stay at home*.

*Questions? Please contact:*

Banks will significantly reduce their charges for SASSA grant beneficiaries to increase number of pay-points they can use to collect their grants which will help maintain social distancing in queues at ATM & retailers during lockdown
