MARCH 30 - APRIL 1
GENDER HUB WEDNESDAY
Tuesday March 29 2011 Cape Argus frontpage reads, "City schoolboys in bloody fight captured on video clip". This influenced the theme of the show which discussed the increase of youth violence/aggression and what will be done about safety in schools.
To discuss the topic Leazanne Leostuht from the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention (http://www.cjcp.org.za/) joined me on the show as well as Nariman Khan PROVINCIAL SAFE SCHOOLS MANAGER for the Western Cape Education Department.
We looked at possible factors causing this aggression and violence in the youth as well as what can and should be done to alleviate the problem.
COMMUNITY BUZZ THURSDAY
MC showcased the St. Andrews High School talent show in Elsies River Cape Town. It's all the name of fundraising for the school for better facilities and maintenance.
Lastly Alderman Clive Justus Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services joined me to discuss the new Solid Waste By-Law. Blitz-like operations will see a group of officers arriving, without warning, in specific areas, where heavy fines will be handed out for all waste related offences.
The cigarette stompie thrown on the ground may become the most expensive smoke you have had at R500 each. Likewise for that cooldrink can, sweet paper, chip packet etc.
Anyone who creates waste e.g. businesses, offices, shops etc. is required to have a contract for the removal of their waste. The officers will be visiting these generators of waste to check and inspect their contracts for removal. It is advised that these are obtained without delay as putting your business waste into the street litter bin or putting a bag/ boxes etc. out on the pavement will draw a large fine with a minimum of R1000 and even much more.
ART - C FRIDAY
For Art - C Friday MC showcased an on Broadway show called Thriller.
