Appeal to step up water savings

The University of Cape Town is not only putting short-term plans and water-management measures in place toward avoiding Day Zero, but is investing significantly in becoming a water-wise, water-efficient campus into the future. Acting VC, Professor Loretta Feris, yesterday issued a statement outlining UCT's current planning to avoid closure in the event of Day Zero.  One of the core strategies is to encourage members of the UCT Community to be part of the 40% who currently are effecting the required water savings (ie. below 87litres per person per day now, and 50litres per person per day come 1st Feb - although we should all have reduced our water usage to 50litres per person per day already).  Every saved drop counts!

The NPA and state capture

The Asset Forfeiture Unit of South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has confirmed that it is probing seven cases related to what has come to be known as “state capture”, involving R50 billion. This development follows months of public frustration due to lack of action by the country’s law enforcement agencies despite mounting evidence pointing to massive corruption. Politics and society editor Thabo Leshilo spoke to legal expert [and Dean of UCT Law], Professor Penelope Andrews.
