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.

Democratic Alliance City of Johannesburg Media Statement
Shadow MMC for Public Safety Cllr Michael Sun
DA lodges complaint over unpaid JMPD Salaries and Allowances
30 July 2020
Release: Immediate
The Democratic Alliance (DA) is demanding that the MMC for Public Safety, Councillor Mally Mokoena, pays the salaries and allowances of Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) officers whom have not received their full incomes for the month of July.
The DA has received numerous complaints from JMPD officers who have pleaded for our intervention after they were not paid in full for the month of July.

The JMPD officers asked to remain anonymous as they fear reprisal. Some officers were not paid in full, some did not receive salary slips, did not receive allowances, and others did not receive their salaries at all.
Since assuming office as the political head of Public Safety in Johannesburg, Cllr Mokoena has steadily destroyed the morale of the City’s police department.

She actively pursued a policy of politicising the department by purging anyone who was appointed under the DA-led Administration and punishing the 1 085 newly trained officers and 415 trainees she has labelled as “DA recruits”.

Under the leadership of Cllr. Mally Mokoena, the Department of Public Safety is consistently marred by allegations of maladministration. This recent failure of salary payments is the latest problem in a series of issues that are indicative of a larger crisis of governance.

The latest bungle in the department has resulted in JMPD officers being unable to pay for their accommodation, purchase food for their families and meet other financial obligations.

Their pleas for assistance have fallen on deaf ears, as management has been uncooperative in resolving the problem. Leadership continues to fail them as the JMPD spokesperson was heard shifting the blame during a radio interview.

This situation has hastened the deterioration of morale on the ground, as law enforcement officers quickly lose confidence in the ANC leadership and its management.

The DA is considering lodging a formal complaint to the Department of Labour to investigate unfair labour practises in the Department of Public Safety, and make recommendations to the Executive Mayor of the City to take immediate corrective steps where his MMC for Public Safety has failed.

The DA urges the MMC Public Safety together with her senior management to immediately correct the errors in the Department and ensure that JMPD officers receive fair treatment.

A big thank you to all that reported the potholes and drains. This went a long way & JRA confirmed the list for repairs. I know they are already fixing them. If yours that you logged is fixed, let me know so we can take it off the list.

So now let’s do another drive, this time, STREET LIGHTS.

Please log street lights not working on the city power website

www.citypower.mobi

Get the ref nrs and email it through to me so that i can keep a log of outstanding issues. You can email me on sarah@ward23jhbsouth.co.za

With some luck we might get the head of the light upgraded to the new LED’s like the ones they upgraded already on Comaro road & Klipriver drive.
