It came to my attention that the municipality bought thousands of water tanks and currently sitting at the waltlo depots. The tanks are not used for anything. Nobody knows anything apparently about them.
We are in a severe draught, notices was given out to save water.
The tanks could have been used for catching rainwater.
Why could the tanks not be given to people who are willing to participate in water saving projects.
I am willing to take at least four tanks.
Why must the tanks allowed to be wasted in the sun

THE TOWN IS REALLY LOOKING BAD. THE STREETS IS FUL OF POTHOLES AND NOTHING IS DONE TO KEEP ANYTHING IN GOOD SHAPE . AT THE OLDAGE HOME A WATERPYPE LEAK AND THEY COME AND TAKE OUT THE PAVING BEFORE THE ENTRANCE. ITS MONTHS NOW AND IT IS STILL NOT REPAIR. WHEN I GO AND FETCH MY MOTHER WHO SUFFER TO WALK FAR THE ROAD NEAR TO THE GATE IS BLOCKED AND IS VERY DANGEROUS TO WALK PASS. THEIR IS A LOT OF MINICIPAL WORKERS THAT GET PAID BUT THEIR IS NO SERVICE AND THE WORKERS IS DRUNK AND NOT AVAILABLE IN EVEN WORKING HOURS. THE WORST PART IS THAT IT IS A EXAMPLE TO OUR KIDS OF GETTING PAID A LOT OF MONEY WITHOUT WORKING FOR IT AND THE HUMAN WRIGHTS IS ON THE SIDE OF UNPRODUCTIVE PEOPLE WHO GET PAID WHILE THE WRIGHTS OF PEOPLE WHO PAID FOR SERVICE IS NOT MET. IT IS ALSO DEPRESSING TO LIVE IN AN ENVIROMENT THAT IS WITHOUT ANY GOOD LOOKING AND POSITIVE LIVING SERVICE.
ITS IS ABEAUTIFUL TOWN AND OUR RESPONSIBILTY TO KEEP IT LIKE THAT FOR THE REST OF THE COMMINUTY TO BE MOTIVATED TO LIVE IN IT WITH JOY AND CARE ND NOT BE DEPRESSED !!!!
CHANGING THE SPIRIT OF ITS MY WRIGHT TO ITS MY PRIVELAGE BY LAW AND MOTIVATION AND PRAYING AGAINT THE SPIRIT OF DESTRUCTION , DEATH AND KILLING AND REALISING THE SPIRIT OF GOD OF LIVE AND THAT IN ABOUNDANCE!!!!

Our Municipality does not do their jobs. They love coming out to fix problems after hours or on weekends because they get overtime, the fact that water is running down our streets for hours while they can fix it in their normal day work time does not bother them. We have a civilian cleaning team that cleans our parks and streets, we are only a handful trying to keep the town clean. The municipality only has to pick up the refuse bags that is bought by us or donated by the public - they don't even do that! The Orange overall workers do nothing, they hang around and sleep under the trees. They are supposed to clean the pavements and keep the parks clean.
What is there to enjoy???? Our once beautiful towns are turning into filthy little shanty towns, the Chinese are taking over with their cheap rubbish. Our town is burdened with jobless Mozambicans and Zimbabweans hanging around.
Been there done that. Unless Government we can change the rulers of this country, there will be no change, they need to end corruption, if they do not we can run around cleaning the streets in 44 degree temperatures, spend our hard earned money, but in the end it will blow away like sand in a storm.

The Municipality just started working last year but it is providing great service delivery such as tar roads, employment,water and sanitation to a large number of households
The education system is becoming free and its catering for many people
Africa should be a united continent with no boarders, using a single currency and ensure lower tarrifs of interna trade

Some roads in Strand, especially beach road heading towards Gordon's bay past the municipal swimming pool is deteriorating with numerous holes in the road. The sea wall has also collapsed causing part of the decay in the road with the sea water washing over the road and every day the municipality just sends a truck to clean the road and not fix the wall properly. I know there is a planned proper walkway and wall which will be erected in future as part of the seawall project phase 2 or 3 which we don't know when this will continue.... but in the meantime the road is terrible to drive on every day.
Love South Africa, love Cape Town and wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
1. Growing gardens with vegetables on open areas as food for the homeless or hungry. Give a job and purpose to these homeless people to cultivate and grow these vegetable gardens all over the city.

2. Let homeless people, street children collect plastic etc out of rivers, on the beach and hand the recycling in for a hot meal.

Social problems taking over our beautiful town. Drug and alcohol abuse. Crime levels escalating. Unemployment at an all time high
Sense of belonging. Friendliness of our people.

There is a lot of litter unfortunately especially in the local river. There are alot of homeless people too and the number is increasing and not much being done to help them.
It is the most beautiful country in the world and the people of SA radiate a good energy despite differing social backgrounds.
We need to educate!!! Build schools together and get more teachers in the impoverished areas. All South Africans irrelevant of social backgrounds or coloured, need to participate.

No budget for our area ! Water pipes bursting daily, sewerage pipes overflowing and running into the dam. Potholes that become sink holes . Water- quality is questionable and undrinkable ! Madibeng under administration but still nothing has changed, except our rates and taxes have gone up !

areas are not maintained while rates and taxes are paid on time. no intervention on any traffic control
all they want to do is implement cameras to the work for them, while they get paid for doing nothing.
CPF does all they can to keep their communities safe and does not get compensated for it. but they are willing to give the services basically for free..
the only solution is to appropriate the funds paid by loyal tax payers properly to benefit the community and not to align the pockets of the dignitaries as they do not deserve it or the ones working at the municipalities, they are citizens like us . The mayors are getting paid for doing nothing and we have to give ideas?
