WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH SAM AND AFRICA: Masterclass: Planet Earth II

When the first Planet Earth series came out a decade ago, it transformed how viewers saw their planet. It captivated a global audience of over half a billion people by giving them an unprecedented view of live on Planet Earth. Now 10 years on, advances in filming technology have made it possible for filmmakers to reveal the natural world in entirely new ways, going further, getting closer and capturing behaviour and places that would have been impossible 10 years ago. Dr. Fredi Devas is a wildlife filmmaker who cares deeply about the natural world and the challenges it faces. After completing a PhD on Chacma baboons in Namibia, Fredi did research on the bushmeat trade in Equatorial Guinea and then spent time living in the San bushmen in Southern Africa. Having worked on Meerkat Manor and Nick Baker's Weird Creatures, he joined the BBC to work on Frozen Planet and then Wild Arabia. He's been lucky enough to film polar bears feasting on a whale carcass, camel racing with robotic jockeys, and be surrounded by nearly half a million King penguins. On Planet Earth II, he decided to leave the wildernesses behind to produce and direct the ‘Cities' episode. Highlights included filming langurs and macaques in India, and hyenas roaming the streets in Ethiopia, where he was struck by the harmonious relationship between people and the potentially dangerous animals they shared their cities with.

KIENO KAMMIES: Very successful December for Cape Town tourism

2016 might have been an average year for many, but for Cape Town tourisms is has proven to be one for the books! The figures for visitor traffic at Cape Town International Airport and at the city's major attractions in December 2016 are out, and it's good news all round. Not only did Kirstenbosch, Groot Constantia and Cape Point enjoy a record-breaking month, expectations were exceeded. December 2016 arrivals breakdown: Domestic arrivals = 398,245 (3% increase) Regional arrivals = 8,795 (1% decrease) International arrivals = 84,493 (29% increase) Total arrivals = 522,659 (8% increase) Enver Duminy, CEO of Cape Town Tourism joins us on the line now… Additional info: Visitor numbers to the attractions in brief: Robben Island Museum: There were 49 738 visitors to the Island this past festive season, 4% more than in December 2015. Kirstenbosch experienced a record December with the most visitors in a month. December figures = 118,699, a 6% increase YOY. The second best performing month in their history was December 2014 with 116,986 visitors. YOY growth = 6% Groot Constantia experienced a record December with 79000 visitors, a 25% increase on December 2015. However, total visitors for the year amounted to 405,088, a 3% decrease YOY. Cape Point also experienced a record December with 129,039 visitors, a 15% increase YOY. Their second busiest month was in October 2016, with 113,709 visitors. Total visitors for 2016 amounted to 1,095,270, a 23% increase YOY. Table Mountain received 150,201 visitors in December 2016, a 0.3% increase YOY. Their 2016 total visitor figures = 1,102,189, a 14% increase YOY. Even in cases where December figures were slightly lower, the attractions posted fantastic annual figures reflecting growth up from 2015. Waterfront had a 1% decrease in visitors YOY for December. However, for 2016 in total, they had almost 1 million more visitors than 2015. The Watershed and Aquarium visitor numbers have increased in 2016 and this could explain the decrease in visitors to the Waterfront

KIENO KAMMIES: New Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) in Cape Town

With the reshuffle of the MAYCO members being announced on Monday, the City of Cape Town can look forward to a number of changes. On such change is the portfolio of Cllr Brett Heron, who has started to implement the new Transport and Urban Development Authority. According to the COCT - The new Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) brings together the pivotal functions associated with the long-term sustainability of Cape Town and those who live and work here, namely: transport, spatial planning and urban development, the management of our environmental resources, and affordable housing. With the amalgamation of these functions under one authority, the City can align its policies and strategies to be more responsive, resilient and dynamic in dealing with the challenges we are currently facing. This sounds like a lot of jargon, to break it down for us… Brett Heron joins us on the line….

KIENO KAMMIES: Car warning systems – temp gauge

After weeks of silence, Ford finally announced on Monday that they would be recalling their vehicles. Ford CEO Jeff Nemeth yesterday told us on air that it took longer to make this decision because they had to do investigations to find out what caused the fires. In December last year, Ford SA confirmed that the risk of its Kuga SUV catching fire was confined to a particular model - the 1.6-litre EcoBoost and was “possibly” as a result of engine overheating. (As such the vehicle's coolant system would need to be checked out. “Dealers will check the coolant concentration level and for any leaks or damage to the cooling system‚ plus conduct cooling system pressure tests‚” Ford SA spokesman Rella Bernardes told Times Live at that time. So we decided to hear from the former technical editor at Car magazine, Jake Venter, for more…

KIENO KAMMIES: Latest about learner placements in Western Cape Schools

About a week ago, the provincial education department announced that more than one million pupils are expected to fill classrooms across the Western Cape in 2017.

Officials were also working around the clock to accommodate late enrolments and pupils who had not yet been placed, she said. With a week of school down, are most of these pupils being accommodated in schools, or are many still without a placement for 2017? Spokesperson for the MEC of education in the Western Cape, Jessica Shelver, joins us on the line now…

KIENO KAMMIES: Water desalination – why are we not doing it?

One of the biggest threats facing Cape Town now numbering 3.7 million people, is running out of water, despite the current restrictions imposed on water usage. Surely South Africa's 3,000-kilometer coastline could support a whole fleet of eco-friendly desalination plants that will solve the country's water shortages and produce a new industry? Why is SA not looking at desalination as the answer to the water crisis? Prof Neil Armitage, Head of Department Urban Water Management at UCT, joins us on the line to discuss this...

KIENO KAMMIES: Fire investigations & arson

Fires are devastating for fauna, flora and everyone in its path and it seems like every day Cape Town is struck by yet another fire – with the latest being the Vredehoek/Deer Park blaze on Tuesday night. The Vredehoek/Deer Park fire came hot on the heels of a fire on Signal Hill and just days after firefighters managed to suppress massive fires in Simon's Town and the Helderberg. Many of you said the spate of fires were suspicious and the handiwork of an arsonist or two. In fact, over the weekend saw a 14-year-old boy identified as a suspected arsonist in the fire along Signal hill after community members identified him as the person who started the fires near the old zoo in that area. This morning we'll here from a representative of the City's investigative unit for more… Additional information Fires must be reported to the City's Public Emergency Communication Centre by dialling 021 480 7700 from a cellphone or 107 from a landline. Between 1 November 2016 and 12 January 2017, the City's Fire and Rescue Service responded to 5 465 fires – an average of 75 a day. Of these, just shy of 80% were classified as bush, grass or rubbish fires. The City of Cape Town has a firefighting complement of approximately 900 permanent staff members, with between 210 and 250 on shift at the City's 30 fire stations at any given time. In addition, 120 seasonal firefighters are employed over the summer months and aerial firefighting support is available in the form of two helicopters and a spotter plane. The City's Disaster Risk Management Centre is another key player in fire suppression, courtesy of its volunteer corps. The City also works closely with other agencies like Table Mountain National Park, Working on Fire and the Volunteer Wildfire Service. Where required, the City can also call on neighbouring municipalities for assistance and vice versa. City firefighters are still monitoring hotspots after the latest fire in Vredehoek/Deer Park last night. Approximately 160 City firefighters with 15 fire engines, four water tankers, five bush tenders and six skid units and support staff, assisted by 70 Table Mountain National Park staff with water tankers and skid units, battled gale-force winds and walls of flames throughout the night to safeguard lives and property. A number of residents opted to evacuate of their own accord. While assessments must still be completed, initial estimates are that there has been structural damage in the region of R4,5 million to four structures. Firefighters were also dealing with a large vegetation fire in the wetlands adjacent to Masiphumelele at the same time yesterday. Tips for preventing wildfires: · It is an offence to toss a burning cigarette butt from vehicles or anywhere else · The sale, distribution and discharge of fireworks without a valid permit is an offence · Fire-wise your garden by limiting flammable vegetation species. You will need to reduce the growth of fire-loving vegetation (usually invasive alien plants) in and around your property by cutting and trimming on a regular basis · Avoid slash-and-burn or bush-clearing activities on high-risk days – you have to have a burning permit or prior authorisation · Make sure that fire hydrants are clear and available for emergency services access · Only braai in safe and designated areas and always put out recreational or cooking fires immediately after use – never leave them unattended · Use heating, cooking or lighting devices safely – use on a stable platform and not near flammable substances of any kind · When camping, extinguish candles, open fires and cigarettes before going to sleep · Always keep matches, lighters, paraffin and poisonous substances out of the reach of children · Make a proper firebreak between your home and nearby vegetation to protect your property · Use safety caps on all poisonous or flammable substances containers

KIENO KAMMIES: Three South African billionaires wealth equal to lower half of the SA wealth

Equality is expected to be a huge focus at the forum following a report released by charity organisation Oxfam – suggesting that the eight wealthiest people in the world have the wealth of half the world. In South Africa - The wealth of three South African billionaires is equal to that of the bottom half of the country's population The report, entitled ‘An economy for the 99%', coincides with the upcoming 47th World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos. Using data from the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report 2016, Oxfam said that this inequality is more pronounced in South Africa as the richest 1% of the country's population have 42%, or $272bn (R3.7tr), of the total wealth of $650bn. The wealth of the richest 10% also accounted for 31% of total wealth, or $202bn (R2.8tr), according to Oxfam. The remaining 90% of the population only account for $175.5bn (R2.4tr) of the country's wealth.

KIENO KAMMIES: DTI on local chicken sector

Yesterday morning, we had a sobering conversation with the MD of RCL Foods, Scott Pitman on the news that the company formerly known as Rainbow Chicken will be closing 15 of their KZN farms and retrenching 1 350 workers from the end of this month. The news is worrying since Rainbow Chicken is one of South Africa's biggest chicken producers. In fact, during that conversation yesterday, Mr Pitman told us that despite the fact that their poultry has never had bird flu, they've not been able to export even one kilogram of chicken over the last ten years. So we wanted to know, what the DTI is doing to protect (and promote) the local chicken industry – especially with regard to the high rate of unemployment in SA… Additional information Pitman said European countries consumed mainly “white portions” (the breast), which they deemed to be the best cut. The “brown portions” (the thighs and drumsticks) were then sold off at cut price - finding their way to developing world markets such as South Africa, where they were sold cheaper than what was locally produced.

KIENO KAMMIES: Ford Kuga recall - consumer commission responds

Ford South Africa CEO Jeff Nemeth says that a voluntary safety recall for all Kuga's 1.6l vehicles has been issued and that the vehicles must be taken to a dealer as soon as possible. The safety recall is limited to vehicles manufactured between December 2012 and February 2014. In the most recent incident, a Kuga burst into flames on Saturday morning on the M1 highway. It was the second incident in just three days, after another Kuga caught fire on Thursday. The two incidents, which brings the number of Kugas that have caught alight to 46, have fuelled panic among owners, who fear for their safety. Despite these incidents, Ford South Africa has yet to issue a recall on the affected Kugas. We hear from the National Consumer Commission now for a response to the recall… Additional information More than four dozen Ford Kugas in South Africa have caught fire since last year. In December, Ford South Africa requested that all local Kuga owners take their vehicle in for a safety inspection. In December 2015, Reshall Jimmy died when his Kuga burst into flames. Since the passing of her brother, his sister Renisha has launched a campaign to raise awareness, to gather the victims and bring Ford to recall all cars and save lives. So far, they have found about 45 cases and the majority of those affected had agreed to bring a class-action lawsuit against Ford SA. She said they took about 30 of these cases to the Motor Industry Ombudsman. Here's what you need to know: 1. Cars affected All Ford Kuga 1.6 vehicles manufactured between 2012 and 2014 are being affected by the safety recall. Owners of affected vehicles are urged to contact their nearest Ford dealer. Customers can find out more by calling 0860-011-022. Any driver who observes any sign of overheating should immediately pull over as soon as it is safe and evacuate its passengers. Ford's Roadside Assistance service is available to help 24/7. The number is 0861-150-250 Ford SA said on Monday it would work with insurance companies and their customers to handle this issue. For cars that weren't insured - or owners who don't want them anymore - Nemeth has said it would deal with such cases individually.

Because of the cutbacks Rainbow Chicken, renamed RCL Foods, is retrenching 1350 workers from the end of the month. This week, Scott Pitman, managing director of RCL Foods, said he no longer knew what to do to save jobs. “Letting 1 350 people go at the end of the month will be the saddest day in my career. How do you get rid of people who have given you loyal service, some as long as 40 years?” he asked. Scott joins us on the line now to chat about the future of Rainbow Chicken in South Africa…

This week the Muslim Judicial Council had to file a case with the police and the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) as two Mosques have been targeted in the last week. Mosques in Simon's Town and Kalk Bay had both experienced some taunting incidents of alarmingly islamophobia. A pigs snout was left at the entrance gate of a mosque in Simon's Town last week Saturday and. This past Monday Pig's blood was sprayed over the walls of the Kalk Bay Muslim center of worship. The Western Cape government has since commented that they two events are linked. The main question we want to ask in about this is – Is there an increase in islamophobia in the Cape? The Pig problem Pigs are an animal considered ritually unclean in Islam and believers are prohibited from consuming them. It is for this reason that these incidents amount to more than just acts of vandalism and de-facing a building. There is a reason behind the specific use of the pig and it is concerning that these attacks are occurring. “While the attacks may be isolated in nature, they indicated a failure of some segments of post-apartheid South Africa to fully integrate.” - Farid Sayed, the editor of Muslim Views. Muslims make up nearly 1.5 percent South Africa's 55-million population and hold prominent positions in politics, academia, and trade.

Transport Minister Dipuo Peters has released the festive season road death statistics for 2016. Peters says a total of 1,714 fatalities were recorded in this festive period, which is a 5% increase on the previous period.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: Many face language barrier to exam success’

Pupils forced to write their matric exams in languages other than their mother tongue are put at a distinct disadvantage, leading to lower scores on their papers, according to UWC's linguistics department head. Professor Bassey Antia said the Department of Basic Education (DBE) should invest in more teachers, moderators and invigilators who speak African languages in order to administer examinations across more diverse languages than just English and Afrikaans. “In classrooms, learners are often taught in more than one language. It is therefore somewhat unnatural for such learners to be tested in only one of these languages, especially when it is the weaker of their languages,” he said. “Speakers of African languages, in particular, score the lowest since their languages are not used in examining content subjects. “The language of the exam paper itself should not be a challenge; the content of the paper should. “When results are released everybody says the performance is dismal and the language question tends to be dismissed. “I say we should look at it differently, because the environments are multilingual and learners acquire knowledge across languages. However, when it comes to assessment, learners are tested in one language, the official language.”

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: News story – SABC Parliamentary inquiry

Former SABC board chairperson Dr Ben Ngubane has told Parliament that former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report on the public broadcaster was based on information from people aligned to certain factions.

His successor, Ellen Tshabalala, also claimed that parts of the report were untrue. However, the SABC never went to court to challenge Thuli Madonsela's report. Ngubane and Tshabalala were the last two witnesses to be called by Parliament's inquiry into the SABC board. Work will now begin on compiling the inquiry's report.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: Health Feature: Undoing the damage we did to our bodies during festive

Christmas festivities are over, the lights and decorations have been stored away, the houseguests have gone, and your life seems to be getting back to normal. Except for one thing, that is: you notice a little extra thickness around your waist, your hips, thighs, arms, well, let's face it– everywhere! Your clothes are uncomfortable and you have an unwelcome extra bulge. It's that Christmas weight gain that comes from indulging in one too many of your mother's butter tart squares, not to mention all those fat laden dips your aunt served up, those extra scoops of gravy, and all those boxes of gooey chocolates that are so abundant during the Christmas season. Avoid starchy, processed foods and sugar such as bread, pasta and cake etc which can leave you bloated and try to eliminate any sugary snacks and drinks. Make healthy swaps with fresh water and a slice of fresh lemon - this will help create a healthy gut environment for more efficient digestion to help flush out the festive toxins. Good multi vitamin and fish oils will definitely help with the nutrition balance and get you looking radiant and feeling amazing again.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: OUTDOOR Active Feature- A New Step

A New Step Fun Run/Walk is a 5-km race that is suitable for all ages and all fitness levels. The race hopes to raise money for a set of prosthetic legs. While the charity is currently only raising money for one very worthy individual, their ultimate goal is to be able to fund and provide prosthetics for children from underprivileged areas. The name of the recipient can be found on their website (Anewstep.co.za) along with his story, and a touching glimpse into life without legs. We cannot emphasise enough that being able to walk is something that we take for granted every day. Some people, through no fault of their own, are unable to stand up on their own two feet and move on with their daily to-dos. The recipient of these prosthetic legs couldn't be a more deserving person, and every little bit you donate will bring him closer to a new pair of prosthetic legs. If you cannot make the event, you can donate to the cause online via their website. Raising awareness about the lack of access to prosthetic limbs is a topic that deserves national recognition, and this event is just step one.

• ANC Succession battle Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has been backed as the ANC's candidate for the next president of the party.

At the same time the ANCWL has also thrown its weight behind African Union chair Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma. The league has argued that the party is now ready and possibly in need of a woman president.

KIENO KAMMIES: Water restrictions, water saving and water wastage 101

Over and over again we've been strongly urged to use water responsibly because we're under a policy of level three water restrictions. Many of us have implemented water saving measures – whether that is through installing pool covers or using grey water – but our efforts appear to be for nought as our overall water consumption is still way too high. (Are we at the point where we need to accept the fact that our pools will dry up and we won't be able to have gardens anymore?) Above and beyond that, there's also water leaks and burst pipes that further put pressure on our water supply. Yesterday Paul from Noordhoek called in on that very issue – here's an extract of that conversation … PLAY CLIP So this morning we'll get a response from the City into water restrictions, water savings and water wastage.

KIENO KAMMIES: OVERBERG MAKING STRIDES IN ROAD SAFETY

I think we were all left reeling after hearing that we are losing the war on reducing road deaths, especially over the festive season. During the festive season there were five percent more deaths on our roads than last year. Sadly 1714 people died on our highways and roads during that period. And it seems national government is singing the same tune when it comes to reducing road deaths. The minister of Transport is once again talking about harsher penalties for drunk drivers, making it a schedule five offence, on par with murder and rape. But it seems there is some light at the end of a gloomy tunnel. In the Overberg, authorities say they are slowly but surely making a difference in the fight against the senseless loss of life. We are now joined by Hector Elliott, the Strategic Coordinator of Safely Home…

Meanwhile Ford says they are still investigating and have no intention of recalling that specific model. They have however urged Kuga drivers to book their vehicles in for a free maintenance check. Meanwhile the National Consumer Commission says that following a meeting with Ford SA in December the company undertook to conduct safety inspections on all Kuga utility vehicles that have been sold in the country. The company has also undertaken to work closer with the NCC to bolster its recall protocols. We are now joined Trevor Hattingh of the National Consumer Commission.

The 1714 lives lost is five percent higher than the previous year's death toll. So clearly something needs to be done to stop this senseless loss of life that plunges so many South Africans into mourning at a time of year when we should be celebrating life. Our Transport Minister, Dipuo Peters thinks the answer might be to reclassify drunk driving as a serious Schedule five offence on par with crimes like murder, attempted murder and rape.

Although the intensity of the strikes appear to have died down, the implications of unsettled disputes and the lack of an accepted final resolution still leaves many aspects regarding the matter of fee elimination unresolved.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: How ready are we for tourist influx in Cape Town

According to Alan Winde, Western Cape tourism, finance and economic development minister, ten per cent of the Western Cape's economy is tourism. Cape Town continues to see an increase in annual visitors despite challenges facing the local tourism industry. This is according to Garreth Bloor, the City of Cape Town's mayoral committee member for tourism, events and economic development. Bloor says a recent study by the City of Cape Town found that nearly 1.65-million foreign visitors arrived in the Mother City in 2014/15, spending an estimated R15.6-billion. This is a marked increase from the R14.4-billion spent by tourists in 2012.

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: The impact of Illegal gambling in South Africa

Online gambling represents a massive loss in tax revenue and has the potential to slash visits to “land based” casinos. Online gambling in Europe, where it's legal, has caused casino visits to fall by 20 percent. Casino and horse-racing revenue fell by 0.6 percent in 2014. According to the National Gambling Board, gambling revenue totalled R21.8 billion while the industry paid R2.2 billion in tax. You may not know it, but online gambling is illegal in South Africa. Nevertheless, it's a booming industry that is hitting licensed casinos hard. The National Gambling Act of 2004 bans all “interactive” online casinos and games such as poker and bingo. Numerous online gambling sites exist and some estimates suggest that tens of thousands of South Africans have active accounts.

Google also announced the top ten ‘what is' and ‘how to' questions for the year. This year's overall trending searches from South Africa have a decidedly global feel. Where last year's top searches - loadshedding and xenophobia - were distinctly local issues, this year's top searches show South African eyes are turned to the world at large, not just at home. The top trending searches for South Africa for 2016 include Pokemon Go, Euro 2016, Olympic Games Rio 2016 and Donald Trump. Local news only gets a look in at number five on the list - Election Results - and that could refer to the local or the US elections. Jacob Zuma and Public Protector topped the top trending South African politicians and prominent figures list. Mandoza and Gugu Zulu, both of whom passed away this year, topped the top trending South African celebrities lists.

Numsa's Patrick Craven says their members have expressed contempt for the proposed minimum wage. “It was decided to go for R12,500, a demand which the Marikana workers died for. As a mark of respect for them we believe that's a reasonable salary.”

KIENO KAMMIES: Appropriate Apps for kids to play this holiday

Children these days are filling their days with technology – more time is spent on devices iPads, phones and computers – than on sleeping – according to Crag Blewett Senior lecturer in education and technology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. He continues to say that while many parents blame falling grades, impeded social interaction and a lack of exercise on technology, that there is a flip side. “Several studies support technology's positive influence on young users, saying it offers exciting opportunities for learning and can strengthen interpersonal relationships” he says. Based on his research into how students learn with the help of technology – he has written a guide to ensuring your kids develop healthy tech habits during term time as well as the school holidays and don't waste their time on “junk apps”. Dr Blewett joins us on the line now…

KIENO KAMMIES: Why is CT traffic so congested?

If you've ever found yourself stuck on Nelson Mandela Boulevard close to the CTICC, trying to get into the city on a Monday or (on any day of the working week) you are probably privy to the fact that Cape Town is battling a beast of a traffic congestion problem. Back in August this year saw Dutch navigation equipment maker TomTom release its annual traffic index survey which showed that Cape Town was the most congested city in South Africa and ranked 47th internationally on its list of the world's most congested cities. The survey found that Johannesburg followed hot on Cape Town's heels as the next worst city in the country when it comes to being delayed in traffic and was ranked 77th out of the 174 cities listed. • We often have callers saying to us (and to Zain Johnson) that their previous traffic light timings were working fine for all – so why change them? • How do they (the engineers that programme the timings of the lights) determine how long to leave a traffic light green for – in a particular direction? • And they also need to consider the timing of other traffic lights further down and further up – as everything has a knock-on effect – • Surely one of the biggest problems are people who block the intersection – and then the light changes, and those who are in the incorrect lanes? • Is it because of the nature of human behaviour that engineers can't programme the lights to be optimum for all? Because somewhere along the line, someone will just mess it up for the rest? • Aren't traffic lights all connected to some central network where traffic authorities are able to intervene when they learn of massive tailbacks? All too often we hear that lights are stuck to a pre-programmed setting based on weekend patterns and not weekday peak traffic patterns. • We can add as many lanes to highways as we want – but they all need to exit at some point – and that's where the hold ups take place – how do we ease those bottlenecks?

KIENO KAMMIES: How to escape from timeshare

It sounds appealing at the time, there is a sense of people getting a good deal as bubbly is popped when someone signs on the dotted line… and you feel like being part of those scoring a deal. This is the scene after you've been contacted by a “holiday club” and told that you've won a prize but needed to attend a short presentation. Or else you might have been stopped while at an exhibition and where they offer you a holiday abroad or perhaps more close to home… There are many who have bought into timeshare or vacation clubs only to realise that they keep paying annual levies, yet never make use of them – either because the properties are never available at a time when you can take a break, or worse, a contract signed into perpetuity that they couldn't get rid of.

KIENO KAMMIES: Outcry at school after Pork served to muslim learners

A number of schools had their matric farewell ball over the past weekend. But at one school in particular, there was a bit of an embarrassing situation – pork was served – and there are a significant number of muslim learners there. While it might seem trivial to some people, this is a very serious faux pas and can mar an event – Talker: Have you been faced with a similar situation before? Do you see anything wrong with an event that serves halaal-only food? (some listeners feel it is against their beliefs to eat halaal food) Note: We did ask the principal Ricky Esterhuizen to join us, but he said that because there is a special SGB meeting to discuss this tonight, he did not want to comment until it has taken place… we can try to see if he can join us tomorrow. He was very embarrassed and explained that they had used a different caterer this year, but had informed them to keep things halaal. A change was made to the approved menu, as they suggested replacing one of the vegetable dishes for a meat dish… and on the evening they served gammon. And for many muslims, it's not a simple matter of just avoiding one particular dish, as they consider the whole meal to have been made garaam – and as a result they were made to scramble for meals at nearby fish and chip and KFC outlets – not the type of meal befitting a matric ball

KIENO KAMMIES: Launch of the DHA Bulletin

The Department of home affairs have launched an initiative to update the population as to the volumes in various Home Affairs offices twice a day. They will communicate real time information to our clients who need to access our services. This will take the format of a traffic report which enables motorists to reroute away from congested roads. Likewise at this time of the year our offices experience huge volumes. Inevitably people prefer to use the offices that they are familiar with and are not informed of the waiting times. “With this bulletin our clients will be kept informed of offices that are experiencing high volumes and can then exercise their discretion as to which of our offices to visit in the Cape Metro area.” The updates will be available on the Department's website www.dha.gov.za through a ticker tape platform. 1. Tell us how this will work? 2. When will it be implemented?

KIENO KAMMIES: Cape’s spring water system – why is it not being used?

For 11 years Caron von Zeil of Newlands worked on Reclaim Camissa, a project that uncovered and documented the vast amount of fresh water that flows to waste underneath Cape Town. We spoke to Caron yesterday to see if she is still working with Reclaim Camissa – she said she had given up a long time ago – because the city was not taking her seriously. The fact of the matter remains - most of the springs and rivers that flow from Table Mountain have been paved over and forgotten, and every day millions of litres of fresh mountain water rushes away unused into drains or sewers. Apparently - Parliament is sitting on two springs and a huge underground reservoir. Why is this water not being utilized? Paul Fairall, Water expert for the Wetland Society of South Africa, joins us on the line now to chat about these water sources – and possible shed some light on why they have not been used. 1. Von Zeil's archive research showed that historically there were 36 springs in the City Bowl. She has uncovered 25 springs and four underground rivers. – is this correct? 2. Could this water provide enough to send the COC out of water restrictions?

KIENO KAMMIES: Can you really earn a living on tips?

We received an sms last week about car guards who are working on Wale street. These are equipped with meters and snapscan machines but apparently they only earn money through the tips they receive. This got us thinking about the idea of tipping and whether or not this is a good way to earn a living. I mean last week at the Fat Cactus in Gardens we had a couple dine & dash on a R1300 bill - if they didn't come forward the cost would have fallen on the waiter. So there are a lot of people who earn their living off the tips they receive. Today on the show we ask - Is this a reasonable way of making a living? Do gratuity payments actually qualify as an official means of making a living? - Does the (labour) law allow for this? - Some argue that earning tips is tax free – and we know you're not a tax expert – but strictly speaking, they should be declaring that to SARS shouldn't they?

WEEKEND BREAKFAST WITH AFRICA MELANE: Zimbabwe anti-Mugabe protest

After months of speculation, Zimbabweans finally get to see what a bond note looks like. The pseudo-currency will come in denominations of $2 and $5, and have an official value of 1:1 with the US dollar. As the government explains it – and especially Reserve Bank Governor John Mangudya, whose brainchild this supposedly is – the bond notes will solve Zimbabwe's crippling liquidity crisis, which has seen cash begin to disappear from the economy. In theory, bond notes can be used in lieu of the US dollars on which Zimbabweans have relied since 2009, when the Zimbabwean dollar was officially abandoned following levels of hyperinflation last seen in Germany's Weimar Republic.

Today is World Aids Day – a day for remembering that while major advancements have been made over the past few decades, too many people are still being infected and dying of AIDS. In South Africa, we were able to turn things around quite significantly given the years of denialism by our government – but a lot more still needs to be done. On the line we have the Western Cape MEC for Health, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo Additional info: • World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988. • World AIDS Day is held on the 1st December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. • World AIDS Day is important because it reminds the public and Government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.

KIENO KAMMIES: Old-school Black Cat peanut butter ad – whatever happened to the actors?

On yesterday's show we got on to the topic of the memorable ads that still stick in our minds to this day. Who can forget the ads for Morkels, VW, Cremora, Farmer Brown, and Black Cat Peanut Butter? We were told that the actor who portrayed the big bully on the beach was Martin van Geems of Kommetjie – and who is still acting and modelling today… But it seems that he did take a break from that life before being “re-discovered” just a few years ago… Additional info: He spent a decade and a half in France to avoid conscription into the South African Defense Force (SADF) under apartheid A few years ago, he was re-discovered as a model when they were looking for someone like him who was able to surf. He has acted on Black Sails, but also does a lot of behind the scenes work as a props master and on-set dresser. He would like to get the cast together again and re-do the advert!

KIENO KAMMIES: Lifman’s R400m tax bill exposes deep faults at the SARS

Mark Lifman's R400m tax bill has exposed deep fault lines at the South African Revenue Service. News24 can reveal that SARS officials are at war over an alleged "review" of Lifman's tax bill, as part of tax boss Tom Moyane's new "rogue unit" that is supposedly investigating the involvement of SARS employees in criminal activities. According to the article written by News24 editor Adriaan Basson, City Press reported in April 2015 that Moyane was under pressure to drop Lifman's tax bill because of his political connections, particularly to former ANC Western Cape leader Marius Fransman. Lifman was also a VIP guest at President Jacob Zuma's birthday rally in Cape Town in 2014. Lifman is a wealthy Cape businessman. He was served with a R388m tax bill by SARS in 2015 after an inquiry into his assets and businesses under Project All Out. Forward to 2016 - A business rescue application for one of his businesses in the Western Cape High Court has now exposed an ugly tug-of-war between senior SARS officials.

KIENO KAMMIES: Psychology of the Black Friday sale

Every one of us has a few items of clothing in our wardrobe which we bought at a sale but don't ever wear or use. We just bought it because it was a good deal. Special deals – like Black Friday today – make people act irrationally. Sadly for us, marketers know this and they employ various tricks to try and make us spend our hard earned money. While we like a good deal, are we good at recognizing a true one? Why are Black Friday and other sales so irresistible to people? Additional information South African consumers have embraced Black Friday in an unprecedented way, showing that they are ready to take part in the famous US sales day. Checkers was the first official South African retailer to fully adopt the US sales day, which traditionally occurs the day after Thanksgiving in the US
