New IPID boss - Jennifer Dikeledi Ntlatseng

16 July 2020 5:31 AM

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate has a new boss after Parliament’s police committee approved the nomination of Jennifer Dikeledi Ntlatseng. Ntlaseng will take up the job, replacing Robert McBride. Police Minister Bheki Cele said the process to find a suitable candidate was a long and tedious process. He said after three attempts to recruit an IPID boss, he'd finally decided on Ntlaseng.  IPID has been without a permanent boss since the departure of Robert McBride in February last year. This came after MPs refused to back any decision to renew his contract.

PPEs for ECDs

16 July 2020 5:08 AM

The Centre for Early Childhood Development will be hosting a SnapScan Mandela Day Donation Drive-by in aid of their #PPEforECD campaign, helping struggling ECD centres get the mandatory Personal Protective Equipment in order to re-open.  The centre says although the High Court has ruled that ECD centres are legally allowed to open, many are still not able to do so due to the expensive PPE requirements. In many cases, R4000 is more than an ECD principal’s salary and is a huge amount to pay after receiving no salary for four months.  With their Mandela Day Donation Drive-By, the centre aims to raise enough funds to support 200 ECD centres at R 4000 each, to open their doors.

The Women Who Left their Families to Guard Kenya's Wildlife

Guest: Sokhu Sibiya, Editor - Africa.com

The Covid-19 pandemic has decimated tourism revenues and left donor-funded wildlife conservation hanging in the balance. In neighbouring Tanzania, many rangers have lost their jobs as tourism has dwindled, putting more pressure on Team Lioness and other community rangers because they are forced to patrol larger areas. There are fears that fewer rangers could prompt a spike in poaching, threatening the delicate balance of the ecosystem and future tourism. Part of the ranger’s job is to relay information to the national Kenya Wildlife Service, and talk to the community to gather intelligence – though this activity has become more difficult during the pandemic

DBE reacts to SADTUs call to close schools

15 July 2020 5:37 AM

In a recent press briefing, the Basic Education Director-General Mathanzima Mweli said that out of more than 25 000 schools in the country, 8 047 were in hotspots and 6 995 of these were public schools. Most of Gauteng’s and the Western Cape’s schools are in hotspots.  In a statement issued on Tuesday evening, the Department defended the decision to reopen schools amid the pandemic:  One of the main reasons for the phased-in reopening of schools was to make sure the unfettered right to basic education for all children is equitably provided. During Alert Levels 5 and 4 of the national lockdown, most children from the most rural and remote areas of the country, especially learners from quintiles 1-3 schools, could not access any form of online teaching and learning.

For Mandela Day every year, the NGO builds 100 waterproof dog kennels from scratch. They then give these to dogs who don't have shelter along with a bed or blanket and a 5kg bag of dog food. This year, the NGO says time is against them and they have so far only produced 43 of these kennels.
