Last Saturday the Johannesburg Housing Company (JHC) through its subsidiary Makhulong A Matala hosted the annualTaffy Cup junior soccer tournament at the Brickfields North community centre in Hillbrow.
  About 500 children and over 100 spectators attended the event.
  JHC community development coordinator Patricia Msebele said the Taffy Cup tournament originated out of an inter-building youth soccer competition which was started in 2007.
  “Tenants initiated this competition to pay tribute to the then CEO and founder of JHC Taffy Adler. We are focusing on the junior soccer development programme which targets children between ages eight and 15. The programme focuses on exposing young talent in the sport, and imparting life skills to children residing in the inner-city,” she said.
  Total garage, in partnership with Steers restaurant sponsored the food for participants and the soccer balls.
  The children were excited about the event. At the end the young players were awarded with balls, lunch boxes, bags, water bottles, medals and a trophy for every team that won in each age group.

Last Saturday about 100 members of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Pathfinder club marched in Johannesburg CBD to raise awareness about the dangers of drug abuse.
   The SDA church’s members decided to take action about the drug abuse around the country. They marched from their church in Claim Street and stopped at the Joubert Park. They handed out pamphlets and CDs that carry messages about the dangers of substance abuse, and explaining why people need to stop using them.
  A church spokesperson Amanda Hati said that was a reinforcement campaign because many people are already aware of the drugs issue.
  “Drug abuse is a serious issue that affects the South African community as a whole and it was impressive to see the members of the SDA church doing something about such issues,” she said.

DA poster campaign

Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance (DA) launched its final phase of posters towards the Gauteng elections at Gandhi Square in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

The DA Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi Maimane said the aim was to deliver a message to voters around Gauteng. “We shall put up posters in every street around Johannesburg and we will be marching around the city. We are going to be for jobs and policies that cut out corruption, we want to ensure that Gauteng is not a city where R6 billion is being wasted.

Our aim is to support entrepreneurs and businesses, we want to see them grow. We want to fight e-tolling because it kills job creation. We would ensure that the standard of education in Gauteng improves,” Maimane said.

He added that the DA wants to send a strong message to the ANC. “We are together for change and for jobs, your vote can bring history,” he added.
