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.

Yesterday I got told of a mass gathering by the City with lots of cars & people. I was asked if I knew what was going on.

I took a drive there and was horrified to see over 60 people from the MMC Margaret Arnolds & MMC Mpho Moerane officers with media and lots of officials at the Vorster Spruit. I went to ask why I wasn’t informed about this considering it my ward, I was promptly dismissed and was shoed away by Cllr Arnolds

When I confronted Cllr Moerane, he had no idea who I was and then quickly blamed the officials.

I understand the need to remove alien trees but there was no communication as to what they were doing. No social distancing, no hand sanitizers and a mass gathering if that nature is forbidden.

To top it off where they planted new trees is right where people drive into the area to use it for baptisms in the waterfall, they will be driven flat soon. They were supposed to have closed off the area long ago which hasn’t happened either much to the residents dismay who live next to the river who have to suffer the excessive noise daily which is a bylaw issue.

This blatant disregard for my roll as oversight and my input as Ward Cllr is concerning, this ANC led administration is using the pandemic as a ruse to politic. Unfortunately for them, my residents see you! I’ll be doing an offical complaint and press release today.

Motorists and fleet-owners whose car licences expired during the lockdown can skip the long queues at the Traffic Department by renewing them at their local Post Office during level 3.

According to the Post Office’s spokesperson, Johan Kruger, the service has resumed at all Post Office branches that offer it.

He reminded people to carry their identity document and that both cash and card payments are accepted.

However, motorists are advised to avoid the period between the 4th and 7th of every month, as branches are usually packed with South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) customers.

“Another date to avoid is the 21st of every month. Car owners receive 21 days grace after the expiry of their car licences, and Post Offices find that customers flock to the branches on this day to renew at the last minute,” he explained.

I’m so tired I can’t just can’t even begin to tell you.

A big shout out to GANSRA & Glenvista Country Club, we sent out 500 loaves of bread, 40 veggie bags and 100 adhoc parcels. A special mention to Shaun Pohlmann & Dudley Wellan for being just amazing !

Residents, St Mary’s children’s home , The Dog Club, Cllr Marais, Cllr Khumalo & Member of Parliment Tsepo Mhlongo(shadow MP for sport) got all the food today to take those in need.

I need a time out and hope Sunday will give me recharge day

The Democratic Alliance (DA) will lay a complaint against the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) and its CEO, Busisiwe Memela-Khambula, with the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) regarding its abhorrent treatment of those in its care, especially the elderly and disabled. SASSA....

A big thank you to Cllr Michael Sun & The True Jesus Church for their donation of 400 masks.

I was given them a while ago but waited for the right time and cause to give them to. They were given to Duncan House frail care centre in Rispark who are also battling due to #Covid19 financially.

Thank you Cllr Sun always supporting us 😍😍


@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

@gav148 @SprchrgdCabbage @uhuru_thami @JoburgMPD @GPDRT_ @FaithMazibukoSA Totally agree! These things are going up all over with no care. We need to put an end to this.

@SprchrgdCabbage @uhuru_thami And it's not like they are subtle or the illegal connections to traffic lights and street lights are unnoticeable.

@JoburgMPD @GPDRT_ @FaithMazibukoSA we'd love a media statement, comment or a CSO meeting? https://t.co/ofjKiCksi7

@uhuru_thami The Orwellian mindset of municipal structures will always keep the poor down because big business are above the law. https://t.co/NpoIRZQXVZ sahara67 photo
