Lest we forget june 16 - A message from ANC Johannesburg

June 16 holds a special place in the hearts of South Africa’s youth. It is a day that is a constant re-minder of the undaunted and fearless fighting spirit of our forebears as well as the inevitable tri-umph of our people’s just cause over systems of exclusion, marginalisation and racial exclusion.
Since that fateful day in Soweto in 1976, June 16 has been a clarion call to the youth to emulate that gallant generation which forever turned the course of history and laid a solid foundation for apartheid South Africa to be rendered ungovernable and unworkable.
41 years on, we salute the role played by successive generations of young people in daring to rise up against tyranny and give lie to the notion that the apartheid regime was invincible.
Commemorated under the theme, “The year of OR Tambo: Advancing Youth Economic Empo-werment”, June 16, 2017 is about taking forward this legacy of advancing people’s struggles and the rejection of tyranny.
South Africa in 2017 is a very different place from the South Africa of 1976. Through strides made by the ANC led government, in the words of ANC Chairperson Cde Parks Tau quoting Isithwalandwe/Seaparankoe Nelson Mandela, Johannesburg has become a City of “…vibrancy and activity. The centre of our country’s prosperity, providing that opportunity to create a better life for all.”
Soweto - with its rich historical significance - is a bustling metropolis where over the last 23 years marked improvement has been recorded in the lives of our people, and youth in particular. The youth of Johannesburg form part of the beneficiaries of government’s program to introduce formal housing which saw a 131.1% increase in number of households living in formal housing since 1994. They have benefited from the 192.1% increase in the number of households using electricity. It is them that have more than doubled the number of black Africans that have completed matric since 1994.
These democratic gains were achieved because the ANC led government understood and indeed was borne out of the struggles of the people. Amongst others, this meant understanding that youth were not homogenous but products of their communities - the majority of whom are not in leafy suburbs of Sandton, Houghton and Parktown. Interventions to address their challenges would therefore markedly differ. The DA/EFF Coalition in Joburg makes no attempt to understand these distinctions nor put in place effective programs which will target and benefit young people in Diepsloot, Orange Farm and Alexandra. They remain fixated on the maintenance of white priviledge and skewing patterns of distribution of resources in favor of those already empowered.
Access to higher education and skills development is not prioritized; neglecting the fact that black young people in the city look to city-led initiatives and partnerships to help them get bursaries and learnerships. To the DA empowerment of youth is not a priority because the youth that requires empowerment is not their constituency.
The DA continues to live up to its racist character ignoring the most vulnerable, poverty stricken and previously disadvantaged peoples in terms of access to skills, job opportunities and education.
Under this DA/EFF coalition the gains of our democracy are visibly being reversed on a daily basis and youth economic empowerment is removed from council priorities. This is evident with the scrapping of Vulindlel’ eJozi , a youth skills empowerment initiative by the City of Johannesburg in 2015 designed to break down barriers to opportunities by creating pathways for young people to access skills training programs and entry level employment. The struggle for youth economic empowerment remains a dream differed in the City of Johannesburg under the DA- led coalition.
Understanding that Africa has the fastest growing self-paced e-learning market on the planet – 16.4% a year since 2013; in 2015, the then ANC led government in Johannesburg launched and budgeted for e- learning programmes such as Massive Open Online Varsity (MOOV). This was done to ensure that we proactively prepare for the disruptive advent of the Fourth Industrial Revo-lution and use the power of connectivity and digitisation to ensure universal access and breaks down barriers to entry.
While the youth of 1976 would have fought for access to education, 41 years on the DA coalition in Joburg continues to entrench exclusion, by not budgeting for programs such as MOOV nor for bursaries to previously disadvantaged and academically deserving students as the ANC had done in the past.
It has become more urgent than ever that the youth must forge ahead and define their own path. The youth must demand from government in the city of Johannesburg a holistic youth development approach. Our struggle has entered a new epoch - defending the gains of our democracy and pushing back against attempts to derail our revolution.
It was Greek philosopher Aristotle who said that “Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime”. For as long as the DA/EFF coalition continues to relegate youth development to the periphery of priorities, the youth of Joburg will remain inspired by the 1976 generation to rise against tyranny. The youth of Joburg will give lie to the notion that this racist, exclusionary regime is invisible.
In the words of giant of our people’s struggle, OR Tambo -”The children of any nation are its fu-ture. A country, a movement, a person that does not value its youth and children does not deserve its future”.
Loyiso Masuku is the ANC Shadow MMC for Community Development City of Johannesburg.

Youth unemployment a ticking time bomb

Gauteng has about 2.7 million young people aged between 15 and 34 who are neither studying nor working. Half of them have not completed Grade 12 and are unemployable, and close to 60% of them are in long-term unemployment. They have never worked and have lost hope.
But with the unveiling of the Tshepo 1 Million programme, things are about to change for good for these young people.
The programme, unveiled on Thursday, is aimed at empowering one million young people through skills training, job placement and entrepreneurship development, which will in turn help the youth to find sustainable jobs.
Speaking at the launch, Premier David Makhura said the Tshepo (a Setswana word which means hope/trust) initiative was first launched in 2014, with the intention to empower 500 000 young people (Tshepo 500 000) through skills training and entrepreneurship development.
However, the programme has been expanded to empower one million young people based on its success and the enthusiasm shown by private sector companies.
“The youth don’t want hand-outs. They want hand-ups. It is an initiative that taps on the energy, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of the youth. It is about opening pathways for the youth to access employment and entrepreneurship opportunities. It is about giving the youth a helping hand and a second chance in life so that they can take charge of their own destiny.”
The Premier said the private sector’s response in supporting this initiative has been amazing.
Already about 25 companies, such as Microsoft SA, Coca Cola, Hollard, Gijima, Shanduka Black Umbrellas, COFESA, ABSA, Broll, CCBSA, Nestle, Unilever, SABMiller/ Abinbev, GE, Cisco, Standard Bank, FNB/ First Rand, Arcelor-Mittal, Barloworld, MasterCard, Media 24, BPESA and SIEFSA, have committed to work with government to give hope to unemployed young people in the province through this project.
“Tshepo is not just about hope for the youth. It’s about hope for us all, for government, private sector and civil society. The private sector’s response has been amazing,” said Premier Makhura.
Some of the commitments made by the partners include the following:
*Microsoft SA will provide one million young people with training opportunities in digital skills.
*Coca-Cola has committed to pipeline of young job seekers into internships, learnerships, enterprise/supplier development and jobs across ABI value chain
*Shanduka Black Umbrellas is a lead implementing/coordinating project partner with in the evolution and rollout of the Township Marketplace Platform and wider Tshepo one Million Township Economy.
*GIJIMA committed skills and opportunities in ICT value chain, especially data analytics, rolling out a skilled pipeline of young jobseekers.
*Hollard committed to township panel beating shops serving Hollard drivable repairs, providing links to township marketplace platform, pilot of a specific Hollard insurance product using the network of new panel beaters, to be sold by youth.
*Barloworld will partner with the township panel beater network pilot, create opportunities for young job seekers across the Barloworld value chain as interns and SED contracts.
One thousand SMMEs identified through the township marketplace platform supported through FNB accelerator hosting interns/creating employment opportunities as condition of ongoing support, agency opportunity for youth linked to instant financial solutions/value adds.
Standard Bank committed internships, job opportunities and supplier opportunities with standard bank, they will also offer asset finance as support to township marketplace platforms, on condition firms create opportunity for youth, and they will also link skills and enterprise development programmes.
Media 24 committed to an online training programme in writing skills and computer-aided research linked to Tshepo One Million learning lab, develop special internship programme targeting youth without matric qualifications
Power FM has also committed to give Tshepo One Million free advertising airtime worth one million rand.

Students should be sharp when choosing courses

Be focussed and be discerning when selecting post-school study options. That’s the special word of advice to youth from Dr Linda Meyer, who was recently appointed as the Deputy Academic Head of Boston City Campus & Business College.
“Students must select study programmes that add value to their prospects of employment and career advancement,” she urges. “As we celebrate Youth Month, which this year is themed. The year of OR Tambo: Advancing Youth Economic Empowerment, remember that a good education is the starting point to youth economic empowerment.”
Research courses and compare advantages and disadvantages of each. Speak with professional bodies and institutions as well as employers to find out which course they recommend. Employers have specific programme preferences, and you should choose a course that is well regarded among the companies in the industry you aspire to enter, or advance in says Meyer.
Boston is a private higher education institution that has been delivering quality education for over 25 years at its 46- support centres throughout South Africa. Meyer personifies the award-winning college’s pay-off line “Education for Life!” She has a long list of qualifications behind her name, which includes a PhD in Management of Technology and Innovation, a Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) as well as an MBA, BBA, PGDip and various diplomas and certificates.
“It’s not just for the love of learning, but for the love of students that I continue studying,” Meyer explains. “It’s important to stay current and to impart current knowledge to our students, in today’s knowledge driven economy current knowledge is a powerful commodity.”
Meyer is responsible for a number of academic portfolios as well as operational areas like student registration, product development and driving innovative ways to deliver modes of delivery to students in Boston’s Higher Education (HE) division. Her role includes continual reviewing student support services and structures to ensure that students succeed in their studies.”Our focus is on equipping students that are marketable and prepared for the world of work,” she emphasises.
Higher education programmes lead to academic qualifications – such as degrees, diplomas and higher certificates – registered on the Higher Education Qualifications Sub-Framework (HEQSF) of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
Higher education qualifications are primarily academic in nature and concentrate on building a knowledge base that can be applied in various professional and workplacecontexts. However, at Boston the practical side is not neglected; all Boston’s HE courses have a workplace integrated learning component. “We assist our students to gain workplace experience in partnership with various public and private sector institutions,” Meyer points out. “Through a structured approach, we prepare students for the real workplace. Furthermore, we have built strong relationships with professional bodies like SABPP, the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB), FMI and CompTIA, to ensure that our students have credible qualifications, and are marketable and sought after in the competitive job market.”
What excites Meyer the most about higher education in South Africa at present, is the fact that higher education qualifications are proven to elevate the youth’s employment prospects. And what worries her the most? Mitigating the negative economic, and societal challengesthat students often face.”Given the current economic climate and unemployment rate, times are particularly challenging for students and their families,” she elaborates. “We need to ensure that we support each and every student through their personal challenges to realise and reach their full potential.”

City Power goes hi-tech to put a stop to power outages

City Power, the City of Johannesburg’s electricity utility, on Tuesday June 13 conducted the first-ever mobile onsite testing on high-voltage power transformers in South Africa at the Delta substation in Hurlingham, near Sandton, as part of its ongoing initiatives to ensure that long and extended power outages in Johannesburg are a thing of the past.
City Power, in partnership with national power utility Eskom, recently bought a mobile high-voltage power transformer testing trailer from German-based company Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen to perform specialised testing on high-voltage power transformers in Johannesburg.
Speaking at the launch of the technology, Member of the Mayoral Committee for Environment and Infrastructure Services Cllr Nico de Jager said in view of its R69-billion development and maintenance of electricity infrastructure backlog, the City had decided to be innovative and keep up with international trends that have proved successful in addressing such power failures.
MMC De Jager said City Power had over the past few years been experiencing numerous power outages at one of its transformers, to the inconvenience of residents and at a great cost to the economy. He said to ensure that extended and unnecessary power outages became a thing of the past, City Power would retest faulty power transformers using the new technology rather than conventional testing methods that had not yielded adequate results.
“Mobile onsite high-voltage tests on transformers are increasingly considered a necessity for a quick onsite. This type of testing will ensure that downtime is reduced as repairs will be done speedily, ensuring that residents do not spend long hours without electricity.”
He said using mobile testing on site would also enable City Power to make informed decisions on the repair of power transformers based on proper diagnosis analysis and allow possible repairs to be conducted on site without having to transport the power transformers.
“Due to the sheer size of the power transformers, at a cost of R35-million each, it is extremely expensive and time-consuming to transport and untank them in a workshop. In this regard, mobile onsite testing is also cost-effective,” he said.

Cllr de Jager also pointed out that electrical insulation also aged over a period of time, depending on operating conditions.
He said it was, therefore, essential for City Power to extend the remaining life cycle of faulty transformers to at least 40 years or longer.
He said the City was committed to not only delivering quality service that residents demanded and deserved, but also to setting standards for other metros and municipalities throughout the country as far as innovation and finding long term solutions to service delivery are concerned.
Mdu Nzimande, City Power’s Director of Engineering Services, said power transformers were critical assets in the power utility’s electrical network.
Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen SA Managing Director Kobus de Villiers said the system, which was already in use in
the United States, Australia, China and Europe, supplied up to 300KVs of power.

COJ Speaker’s Message for the Youth

The year 2017 ushers in the 41st Anniversary of the National Youth Day, triggered by the “Soweto Uprisings” on the 16th of June 1976. In Johannesburg this 41st anniversary comes against the backdrop of a changed political landscape, where the governance of the City of Johannesburg is under the leadership of the DA led coalition government and EFF following the Local Government Elections of the 3rd of August 2016.
This comes 23 years after the start of our democracy following the first democratic election of April 1994.
The 41st anniversary of the Soweto uprisings is an important milestone as it means that the majority of young people who led the struggle against apartheid at the time would have reached retirement age in 2017.
The assessment of our current socio-economic conditions would tell us that the majority of these heroes would also be beneficiaries of the government’s social grant system. Most of them, being residents of the City of Johannesburg, would still be awaiting for the economic benefits of democracy, which have simply not come forth, 23 years post democracy.
It is also an important milestone in that our first democratic elections in 1994, happened a mere 18 years following June 1976 Soweto Uprisings.
This would aptly suggest that the torch bearers of the uprising would also have been the “Midwives” to the birth of the democratic dispensation. It is disconcerting that despite the freedom we have, young people continue to be confronted with many challenges emanating from acute levels of unemployment and poverty.
The coalition government and the EFF of the City of Johannesburg has set itself 10 priority areas in order to ensure improvement of the life of the residents. Two of these priorities speak directly to the issues of young people. The priorities are: “run a responsive and pro poor government”, and achieve a minimum 5% economic growth by 2021.
The Legislature of the City of Johannesburg is responsible for oversight and public participation. Through the Section 79 and the Ward Committees, I will ensure that we hold the executive accountable in order to ensure achievement of the priorities.. In this way we will be able to contribute significantly towards improving the life of our residents, and the youth in particular.
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all the fathers well as they celebrate the Fathers’ Day on Sunday the 18th June 2017. Present and responsible fathers complete a stable and healthy family as the basic unit of society.
I would like to pay special tribute to the Young fathers who continue to ensure stable families and provide proper environment and support.
This will ensure that we grow bright and wonderful young people in support of stable communities.
I would like to encourage the young fathers and the young people generally, to continue the Legacy of the youth on the 16th June 1976, and ensure that the issues of young people are always at the top of government and private sector programmes.

Residents urged to blow the whistle on illegal waste dumpers

Cllr De Jager said every citizen deserved to live in a good and healthy environment. He said the City needed to find a long-lasting solution to recurring service delivery challenges such as blocked drains.
“We need to make sure that communities understand the importance of infrastructure. The pipes get blocked because of what people throw into the system. From our office, we are going to be running an ongoing campaign to get communities to commit themselves to protecting the City’s infrastructure,” he said. The MMC said there were illegal waste dumpers who targeted informal settlements, operating mostly at night. He said this illegal practice, which posed a threat to the community and cost the City more than R50-million a year, would soon come to an end. Cllr De Jager said the City would soon provide residents with whistles that they would blow every time a truck arrived in the area to dump waste. But he strongly warned residents not to toss rubbish into the drainage system. “We cannot get Johannesburg Water to come and flush the system every two to three weeks, which is what happens in high-density areas,” he said. He reiterated that the City was committed to serving all communities, regardless of their class. “Just because you are poor does not mean you deserve an infrastructure that is poor,” he said.

Mayor Mashaba’s Message for Youth Day

41 YEARS AGO TODAY, heavily armed apartheid police fired teargas and later live ammunition on about 10 000 students who were peacefully protesting against the introduction of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction alongside English.
This was after the Bantu Education Act was introduced by the Apartheid government in 1953, further entrenching the systematic oppression of black people in the country.
Theirs was a protest for freedom and equal franchise within their own country.
Johannesburg today has 862 000 unemployed people, with an unemployment rate of over 30%. It is heartbreaking that 41 years after the 1976 Soweto Student Uprising, it is the youth of our city, who are the greatest causalities of this crisis, facing an unemployment rate of over 50%.
This administration is determined to work hard to turn this around by growing the economy by 5% by 2021.
• We have also budgeted R16 million in the 2017/18 budget for the expansion of the City’s SME Hubs from seven to 14 Hubs.
• We have increased to R8.5 billion in 2017/18 the target for investment and business facilitation.
• We have also set aside R10 million for the artisan development training programmes in the coming financial year, as well as ensured that
child-headed households with a property value not exceeding 2 million
Rand receive a 100% rebate on services offered through our Expanded Social Package.
Compounding to the unemployment is the drug epidemic that continues to steal the lives of our young people.
To ensure an integrated approach, we are in the process of launching a series of pilot projects to expand the services offered at City clinics to include drug rehabilitation services to communities highly impacted by drugs. This administration is dedicated to ensuring that the legacy of the youth of 1976 is honoured through the creation of an environment where residents are treated with respect and dignity.
By running programmes that tackle the challenges faced by our young people, we are ensuring that we also leave a legacy that young people, 41 years from today, can be proud of.

Hillbrow service lanes cleared of waste

Officials of the City of Joburg’s Environmental Health Department and waste management entity Pikituprecently mounted a major cleanup of service lanes in Hillbrow in their ongoing drive to rid the inner city of grime.
Service lanes are arteries used by waste collection, emergency and delivery vehicles to access highrise apartments to provide tenants with the necessary services.
But in areas like Hillbrow, in Region F, service lanes are creaking under the weight of illegal dumping as some tenants of high-rise buildings toss their waste material out their windows, creating severe environmental and health hazards.
“As environmental health practitioners we have a role to play in giving people information about what may be dangerous to their health,” said Region F Environmental Health Practitioner, Masego Sehohlo.
Sehohlo said the department sought to create a clean, litter-free and liveable city with well-maintained buildings, where the water is clean, the air is fresh, by-laws are enforced and the community is acting responsibly.
She said illegal dumping could lead to serious health-related problems and the spread of rodents. “Prevention is the best solution for rat control.
“We have to eliminate the conditions in which they thrive and for this we need residents to co-operate,” said Sehloho.
Two service lanes were cleared during Friday’s campaign, resulting in tonnes of waste having to be transported to landfill sites by Pikitup.
Sehohlo was, however, not entirely happy with residents’ participation. But she hoped that in future more people would understand the purpose of cleaning up Johannesburg. “We would have liked for residents to join us so they could reprimand those who dump waste illegally,” she said.
“Realising a clean city requires community involvement and law-abiding citizens with a deep love for their city and its wellbeing. We are happy that community leaders joined us and hope their involvement will encourage more residents to get involved in cleaning up Johannesburg,” said Sehloho.
Resident Thandazile Ndlela, who lives near one of the service lanes, was one of the people who took part in the campaign.
“I decided to come and clean the service lane because it’s my responsibility as a resident. We all complain about the stench emanating from the rubbish in the service lane but we don’t do anything about it,” said Ndlela.

Crime has no nationality – Makhura

Gauteng premier David Makhura on Saturday cautioned political leaders against making reckless remarks which generally characterised foreign nationals as criminals.
“Africans from all over the continent, those who have chosen our province as their home, we want you to contribute positively to the growth and development of Gauteng province.
“If you are a criminal, we must deal with you, whether you are a South African or an African from any other country.
“The first thing which defines you is that you are a criminal,” Makhura told an Africa Month celebrations event in Johannesburg.
“Criminals must be dealt with [but] we must not criminalise a nationality.
“A criminal is a criminal, whether it is a Nigerian or a South African, that criminal belongs in jail.
“I want to warn those that keep criminalising nationalities, sometimes it is the mayors who take platforms and condemn a whole nationality.
“If there is a drug dealer who is a Nigerian, it is not that [all] Nigerians are drug dealers. We must deal with the drug dealer,” he said.
Makhura warned political leaders to avoid generalisations. He called for concerted efforts by all who lived in South African communities to fight crime, particularly drugs-related crime.
“If we have a South African who is a rapist you cannot then say all South Africans are rapists.
“We must deal with that rapist and put that rapist to jail. We work together with the African Diaspora Forum.
“Let us make sure that in our communities there are no drugs. God’s people, drugs are killing our children. The drugs are finishing our communities. Let’s deal with those manufacturing and distributing drugs.
“Let’s work together and ensure that in every community we are dealing with crime and drugs,” he said.
Makhura also urged foreign nationals running businesses in Gauteng to also employ South Africans. “Today we went through many shops in Yeoville.
“Let us make sure that these businesses comply with the by-laws. Let’s make sure that these businesses employ a lot of our people.
“A lot of the businesses I saw there [in Yeoville] can also help us deal with unemployment.
“That is one of the discussions I want to have with the small businesses we have all over our province,” he said.
On Sunday, Makhura will lead a government and business delegation to Nigeria and Ghana in an effort to woo investors from those African nations.
“We are going to sell the fact that Gauteng is open for business,” he said.
Earlier on Saturday, he led scores of participants in the Afrocentric Street Jamboree Parade marking the close of the 2017 Gauteng Africa Week celebrations.
The event was organised under the theme:
A Year of OR Tambo: Building a better Africa and a better world, through partnerships between the Gauteng city region and the African Diaspora Forum.
Cultural groups from countries including South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, and Ethiopia took part in the festivities. —

Jozi is for migrants - MMC Phalatse

The City of Johannesburg’s Member of the Mayoral Committee for Health and Social Development, Cllr Mpho Phalatse, recently called for more tolerance among communities, saying the majority of people living in Johannesburg were migrants.
“The vast majority of us were not born here. While there are some who feel more entitled than others, all of us have African ties. As South Africans, we are Africans first,” MMC Phalatse said.

“Many of us are migrants in Johannesburg,” she said, emphasising that ubuntu would help unite all Africans. She said although other African countries contributed to South Africa’s struggle for freedom, foreign nationals had to abide by the country’s laws and to join forces in the fight against crime. “Other Africans were one with us during the struggle. They were there for us when we needed them. But every country has laws.

For the sake of harmony, please abide by the law. My message to you is that we’re one, but let’s respect one another. We must unite against what is wrong,” she said, adding that proper immigration controls were necessary to keep tabs on who was in the country and for cities such as Johannesburg to plan for services offered to communities. Cllr Phalatse said plans were under way to establish a centre in Yeoville to promote social cohesion, skills transfer and provide facilitators “who will help us experience Africans in a different way”. 

The centre will be ready for use by the time the 2018 Africa Day celebrations are held.
The City’s libraries, under its Library and Information Services, are hosting several events across all seven regions aimed at educating Johannesburg residents about Africa Day through books, storytelling, cultural performances, food and African games.
