true value of the advertised discounts. And in reality, our analysis shows, what is

Where you place your child for care and early learning is one of the most important
decisions a parent can make. The people and places that surround a young child
influence their cognitive and emotional development for life. This is also likely to be the
first social space that a child encounters without a parent, and it will shape the child’s
engagement with most social institutions in future, including school, tertiary education
and even the workplace.
Chris Venter recently became the first blind person to climb Lion's head, with the help

The duo was able to do this by Chris holding onto Kosta's shoulder and constantly
talking to each other. Kosta has been up Lion's head more than 400 times and describes
the hike with Chris as life altering.

Guest : Blackey Tempi
Township trumpet titan Blackey Tempi and his quintet combine big sounds, swinging
township melodies, with sophisticated soulful harmonic vocals and a celebratory
African rhythmic tempo.
He has been shaping South African jazz since the 70’s. Known for his stylish blend of
rhythmic African music an American traditions and his brilliant big band presence, he
has recorded with the likes of Winston Mankunku and Errol Dyers.
He started playing trumpet and frugal horn in 1977 after dropping out of school after
the Soweto riots of 1976. He is largely self-taught although he joined Jazz Workshop in
1979 to study further. In 1982, he started his first band ‘Fever’ which played mainly
cover music of the day and played regularly in the Cape Town nightspots.
Between 1982 and 1985, he played with numerous bands in and around Cape Town and
in 1985 toured Namibia for three months with the musical “African Follies”. On his
return, he moved to Gauteng to play with a wide variety of bands.
In 1998, he returned to Cape Town to participate in a three year jazz programme under
Professor Mike Campbell but regrettably had to leave the programme due to financial
During this time, Blackey had been playing with an 8 piece big band called “Tandanani”
playing original African music, but he felt that a more commercial band was needed to
appeal to a broader band of customers and in 2000 “The Brotherhood” was born.
Between 2002 and 2012, Blackey toured extensively with hit tribute show “Diamonds
and Dust “ and a further two years with other Barnyard tribute shows before returning
home to start a successful B & B with his wife which is a hit on the Coffee Beans Route

The Democratic Alliance’s (DA) post-2019 election review report recommends that
party leader Mmusi Maimane step down.
The DA’s disappointing run in the 2019 general election saw the knives come out for the
charismatic leader — its first black party head.
In 1994, the DA got 1.7% of the vote. In 1999 it got to 9.5% of the vote and grew steadily
to a high of 22.3% in 2014.
But the 2019 election saw the DA slump for the first time in its history — to 20.7%
The review report committee was led by former DA chief strategist Ryan Coetzee.
A party source said: “There’s a recommendation that the leader step down.”
But those in Maimane’s corner said he will put his faith in council delegates. One of
these said: “The report will be tabled on Saturday; it’s the only thing on the agenda.
From there they will deliberate and it is up to council to decide.”
The report is also thought to contain a suggestion that the party’s chief executive, Paul

Boughey seems to have preempted this, with his resignation late on Thursday.
In his resignation letter, Boughey said that he had “reached an agreement in principle”
with the party to step down, adding that the full details of the agreement would be
revealed in the coming days.
In a statement released by the DA, noting the resignation of Boughey, the party lauded
his service to the party and the “Democratic project”.
