Last Thursday was World Sight Day, and we dedicated the entire show to the topic. And the feedback we received from many of the listeners was the difficulty of receiving treatment and general eye care in this country. It seems to be a global problem though, as statistics suggest that more than a billion people worldwide do not have access to eye care services and that here in South Africa there are literally thousands of people who are needlessly going blind because they haven’t had access to good preventative screening and care services.
So we reached out to the Western Cape Health Department to give us a better understanding of why we have such a backlog, and what they're doing to address the issue.

It's just 12 days until the Local Government Elections, which are due to take place on the 1st of November. As we've been on this show over the last few weeks, we're touching base with our Eyewitness News Reporters who have been on the ground, listening to the demands of community members and listening to the promises of politicians.
Today, we find out more about a township in the south Peninsula, Masiphumelele. Situated about 20km out of the city centre, the township is located near the neighboring communities of Kommetjie, Capri Village, and Noordhoek,
For many Capetonians, the only time they hear about Masiphumelele is in news bulletins, when a fire rips through the informal settlement, displacing thousands of people.
To find out more, we’re joined by EWN reporter Kaylynn Palm.
In today's music segment we feature the music of Joburg-born musician Ben Dey.
If you're familiar with his music, you'll know that he's the frontman of the Cape Town-based afro/indie pop-rock band, Ben Dey and the Concrete Lions which he co-founded back in 2015
Dey is soon to release his 10-track solo debut album, titled InFlow. But in the lead up to that, he's dropped a single to whet your appetite.
Dey's paid tribute to Bob Marley, by doing a cover of the reggae music legend’s song Natural Mystic.
