16 Days of activism against Child and Woman Abuse

Municipality Watchdog supports 16 Days of activism against Child and Woman Abuse

Held every year from 25 November to 10 December, 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children is an international campaign that raises awareness about violence against women and children.

Regardless of South Africa’s world-renowned Constitution and a legislature that safeguard women’s rights, violence against women and children remains at unacceptable levels. The violence takes different forms such as sexual harassment, abuse, assault, rape, domestic violence and other cultural practices that are harmful to women and children.

The campaign aims to:

  • Challenge the perpetrators of violence to change their behaviour
  • Involve men in helping to eradicate violence
  • Provide survivors with information on services and organisations that can help lessen the impact of violence on their lives

Municipality Watchdog urges all residents to support the campaign by wearing a white ribbon to show their solidarity. A white ribbon is a symbol of peace and symbolises the commitment of the wearer to never commit or condone violence against women and children.

Eskom starts Load Shedding

As a result Eskom has implemented stage 1 load shedding today as of 13h00, until 20h00 this evening. Load shedding will recommence again tomorrow and Sunday at 09h00 in order to build up reserves for the week ahead. Eskom will update the public on the status on an ongoing basis.

Watchdog request premier to intervene with relocation of Cornation Park residents.

We as the Municipality Watchdog will request the premier of Gauteng, Hon. David Makhura to intervene and assist the residents of Cornation Park in Krugersdorp with the relocation to Munisieville, this comes after a court order was obtained by the Mogale City Local Municipality and a court have ruled they must leave the park by the 16th December 2014.

We are unhappy with the temporary shelters that was built for this residents by the Red Ants as the workmanship is sloppy and unacceptable, water is not available on this site and there is no ablution facilities, residents will have to make use of temporary chemical toilets.

Basic Water and sanitation is a necessity and everybody’s   human right as set out in Section 27 in the constitution of the Republic of South Africa: the rights to foodwaterhealth care and social assistance, which the state must progressively realise within the limits of its resources. What happened to the (Batho Pele – caring, empathy, respect, recognition, value, reward, compassion and consultation) principals, that was adopted by Local and Provincial Government.
