“Beach users are very clever how they hide their alcohol, whether it’s in watermelons or the sand,” says Zahid Badroodien.

The City of Cape Town urges parents and children to be cautious when swimming to cool off during the heatwave.

Thirteen people drowned at sea in Cape Town over the festive season.

Nickolaus Bauer interviewed Zahid Badroodien, Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health at the City of Cape Town.
