D-dag vir DA se De Lille

Die beleërde DA burgemeester van Kaapstad, Patricia de Lille, het in aanloop tot die wantrouemosie teen haar, die eerste rondte gewen toe die hooggeregshof bevind het dat die besluit oor die stemming in die mosie, by die speaker berus. Die speaker moet nou besluit of die stemming in die mosie geheim of oop gaan wees.

Die hof het gesê dat lede die reg moet hê om volgens hulle gewete moet stem, wat in wese daarop neerkom dat die stemming wel geheim sal moet wees.

Wes-Kaap gebruik net 24% van R74,8 miljoen rampgeld om droogte- en waterkrisis in Kaapstad te takel

Die Wes-Kaapse regering moet rekenskap gee oor waarom hulle net 24% van die R74,8 miljoen wat die nasionale regering verlede jaar toegeken het om die droogte- en waterkrisis in Kaapstad te takel, tot dusver gebruik is. Dan soek Des van Rooyen, minister van samewerkende regering, ook antwoorde oor hoe die DA-regeerde Kaapstad-metro ook midde-in die […]

Kaap word gevaarlik – DA-beheerde Wes-Kaapse regering onbevoegd om misdaad te bekamp

Die Kaap is nie meer die misdaadvrye gebied wat dit was nie en steeds meer gewelddadige misdaad kom voor, veral op toeriste, terwyl die DA-beheerde Wes-Kaapse regering skynbaar net so onbevoeg is om iets daaraan te doen as die ANC in die ander provinsies.

Nadat verskeie stappers die naweek op Tafelberg aangeval en ernstig beseer is, het vyf fietsryers van Stellenbosch ‘n “helse ondervinding” gehad toe twee mans hulle in die Ou Helshoogtepas aangeval het met messe en stokke.

Die polisie het vinnig gereageer en die twee mans is kort daarna gearresteer.  Die fietsryers het slegs geringe beserings opgedoen.

Cape Town’s water crisis: driven by politics more than drought

Cape Town is hurtling towards “Day Zero”: the day taps run dry. This is expected in mid-May, just weeks after the city’s new water supplies are due.

Cape Town is quite used to surviving dry years. Water restrictions get it through and then dams refill, thanks to the wet years that usually follow.

But this time it’s different. Never in recorded history has Cape Town encountered a drought of such severity for three consecutive years.

DA al in 2011 gewaarsku oor waterkrisis

Die Stad Kaapstad kry vanuit opposisiegeledere behoorlik die wind van voor na sy besluit om ‘n sogenaamde droogteheffing in te stel.

Erika Botha-Rossouw, VF Plus-raadslid vir Stad Kaapstad, sê dit is onregverdig om nou deur ʼn heffing die inwoners te straf omdat hulle voldoen aan die oproep om water te bespaar, en die tyd het aangebreek dat die DA en sy Kaapstadse burgemeester Patricia de Lille opstaan en aanspreeklikheid vir die krisis aanvaar.

Botha-Rossouw sê dit druis in teen die aanvaarde beginsel dat gebruikers moet betaal vir dit wat hulle gebruik. Kapenaars moet nou betaal omdat hulle nie gebruik nie. Die VF Plus het teen die heffings gestem.
