DOORNDRAAI DAM

 

Ek was in Februarie by die dam saam met vriende, en was blyomtesiendatwerk by die dam hervat is, nadatdit tot stilstandgekom het einde 2015.  Ek was ook in Januarie by die groepkamp, en was toe baieteleurgesteldgeweesomtesiendatwerkgestaak is.  Daar is nogbaiewatgedoenmoet word, maar ditlykdarem of die werkvoortgaan.  Die ablusie is so te se klaar, die afwerkingsmoetnoggedoen word, sowel as die krag, en die son panelemoetooknoggeinstalleer word. Hulle is ookbesig met die Kamp staanplekke.  Al wat my bekommer, is die feitdat die staanplekkewatgeallokeer is, baieklein is, dit is 2.5m x 2.5m en dit is tekleinvir ‘n staanplek.  Ekvoelregtigdathullehiernamoetkyk.

Daar is genoegablusie by die hoofkamp, sowel as by die dagbesoekers en by die gebiedwatbeplan word vir die vissermanne.  Eksal net graagwilsien, datiemandaangestel word, watbeheerkanneemoor die instandhouding van die gebouesowel as die perseel.  Daarsalbestuurtoegepasmoet word op ‘n sekeremanier.  Die booteienaars was baieopgewondegewees, oor die feitdathulle die bestaande “slipway” herstel het, en ooknogeen by die dagbesoekersgemaak het, ditlykgoed en ditvergemaklik die taakom die bote in en uit die water tekry.  Een van die grootsteprobleme op die huidige stadium is die personeel by die hek, watnieweet van besprekings en betalingswatgemaak is nie, daarsaldefnitief in die toekomshiernagekykmoet word.

Ekglo vas as die projekvoltooi is, saldit ‘n baieaangenamevakansie en naweekwegbreegvirenigekamper of dagbesoekerwees.

MEMBERSHIP

 

The Mokopane Business Chamber wishes to inform the community that we find the business climate to be very difficult presently.  The three main reasons for this are the bad decisions taken in the changes of the Ministers’ of finance which has sent the value of the Rand tumbling down .   This has caused a rise in price in most goods.

The draught of the past few months has also had a negative effect on business and the increase in food prices.

The strike action at the Mogalakwena Municipality that sent our streets into junk status and the four weeks that we had no service delivery damaged our town’s economy.

All this has had a negative effect but at the Mokopane Business Chamber we are staying positive and doing our best to improve the situation where possible.  We have requested meetings with the Municipal Manager and the Mayor and we have sent emails to them requesting answers on the cost impact of the salary increases and the court case appeal.  The Tour around Town, where we take the Municipal Manager and his Department heads on a tour to all the problematic areas has improved the town’s infrastructure. We are working alongside the SAPS to improve the safety and security.  Currently we are printing the new Service and Delivery directory which will be delivered at the end of this month.  As you can see a lot of work is required to assist the town economy and we require every business to join us to achieve this.

Your yearly contribution for membership is urgently needed for us to continue the good work that this business chamber has served us for more than 90 years.

TOUR AROUND TOWN REPORT

The Chamber of Business hosted a tour around town on 20 January 2016 where the Municipal Departments accompanied us to problem areas that was submitted by the community.

 

General Remarks

A number of people did not receive the recycle bins, but are very interested in using it, as it is a very good initiative from the municipality. We request the municipality to use the media to inform the people where and when they can receive the bins. Residents are willing to collect these bins at a certain point, most of the residents are working and were not at home, when these bins were delivered

 

Complaints

  1. The main road from Polokwane near the Game Breeding Centre does have a big pothole in the left hand lane.

 

  1. Hawkers Corner – Ruiter Rd: This area is in a terrible condition. There are a great number of waste bins overflowing with waste. The smell around that area is not suitable for the people selling food, and is a serious health risk. The request is to clean the waste bins, and that Safety and Security look into this matter as well as water and sanitation. The trees are being used as toilets. There are also complaints of drug dealing. This area must be properly utilised.

 

  1. The entrance to Boxer in Nelson Mandela drive is not safe for the people going to do shopping. The Security dept will look into it.

 

  1. There is a person who stays under the bridge in Pretorius Street on the way to the industrial area. He is an illegal squatter and a threat to the people of Soetdorings. He is also cutting down some indigenous trees and makes fire under the bridge. We are concerned about the safety of workers and the structure of the bridge because of his actions. This matter will be attended to.

 

  1. Animal waste opposite abattoir: This empty premise is a health risk and a dangerous building, because it is falling apart. Mr Pieterse from the buildings dept will follow up on this issue.

 

  1. Corner Simmentaler and Bonsmara streets: The pavements are used by a Granite company as a dumping site. There is an open water hole since last year, with lots of rubbish on the opposite side of the road. This is dangerous because it is so overgrown that people can’t see it. There is also a tree on the corner which causes a problem with visibility from Bonsmara Street.

 

  1. Sewerage spillage and water leakage under the bridge in DuduMadisha Street. Lots of water is spilling from a pipe. There is also sewerage spillage in the river.

 

  1. Taylor Street: The open erven at the Taylor and van Riebeeckstr is very unsafe. There are complaints from the community that people are being raped and robbed in the bushes. The chamber requested the municipality to clean the stand, so that there is no place for criminals to hide.

 

  1. Ext 19: there are lots of waste in the open land and lots of cattle walking freely in this area. The waste is a health risk and the cattle a danger to drivers of vehicles. Traffic and Security will look at the problem and make sure that these cattle in town will be taken to the pound. If there can be street lights in that area, it will be safer for workers going home. There are daily hundreds of workers using that road to come to work and back. It is a very dark area after sunset.

 

  1. Corner Van Riebeeck and Van Heerden streets are a storm water drain that has collapsed and is causing a danger.

 

  1. At Silver Palms is a water leakage and repair work that was not completed. Lots of material used to repair is still on the pavements.

 

  1. At the Post Office is a big hole in the road since last year. This can cause accidents and is a danger at night, because it is not marked clearly.

 

  1. Corner of Van Riebeeck and Ruiter Road. Lots of money was paid to pave that area for trucks turning there. Since December there is a problem and it cause problems with the traffic. Trucks use the right hand lane and the turn to the left. People unaware of this problem keep on driving in the left hand lane, and then all of a sudden realise that a truck is trying to turn to the left in front of them. This is a very busy and dangerous corner.

 

  1. The storm water drain at the corner of Hooge and Van Riebeeck streets at the IEC building is also a problem.

 

  1. There is a request that the bulk waste bins in Hooge Street on the pavement opposite Spar must be cleaned daily. It is overflowing with rubbish and is a health risk. The pavement where these bins are is in a terrible condition and must be looked at.

 

  1. The old Stadium – Fourie Street. This building is not only in a bad and dangerous condition. People use this for illegal activities and then make a big noise. The condition inside the building is terrible. This building is on the list for our tour around town since we started with this tour.

 

  1. The old swimming pool on the premises of Dept of Public Works: This is a problem for the past few years. It is a dangerous place where the pupils of Mokopane Primary play after school, while waiting for transport. There are also incidents of learners using the stones to through at vehicles passing by. The Municipality must please engage with the Dept of Public works and ensure that the area is safe, by either putting up a fence or demolish and clean the area.

 

  1. Corner Thabo Mbeki and Geyser streets. There is no fence between the main entrance to the town and the Dept of Public Works premises. The pavement is in a bad condition and storm water drains (5 of them) are damaged.

 

  1. The pavements are in a bad and condition in Totius Street at the Waterberg FET College. The students are using the road to walk in. It is a dangerous situation because of pedestrians using the road as you turn into Totius from Thabo Mbeki.

 

  1. At the corner of Totius and Hoogestreet are 3 x storm water drains broken.

 

  1. The old Tennis Courts at the Van van Rensburg Hall is in a bad condition. The Chamber suggest that the area must be cleaned and that the municipality can then invite schools in the outline areas to make use of the courts for training purposes .

 

  1. Fourie Street: There are grass and trees growing in the street. The pavement is not even visible.

 

  1. Park Street 45: the empty stand is a property of the municipality that is used as a dumping site by the people in the area. We request the municipality to clean the stand; people will not dump rubbish in a clean stand.

 

  1. The surface of Koper Street is still in an even worse condition than on previous tours. Promises of resealing are made on every tour.

 

  1. New area in Chroom Park (Nylpark) where the old airfield was is in a terrible condition. We only went into LlekaLekalakala Street and saw trees and grass growing in the road, water leakages and open stand where the electricity boxes were vandalised. This is the latest development of the town and the tar roads looks as if it is one of the oldest developments.

 

  1. Water leakage Kruger 67: It seems to be from the swimming pool of the resident. Mr Pieterse suggest that the resident be contacted and inform of the problem.

 

  1. Corners Thabo Mbeki and Voorstreet: storm water drain broken

 

  1. The pavement in Thabo Mbeki at Waterberg Pharmacy is dangerous. People fall into that hole and hold the businesses in the area responsible for their injuries. It is because of a leakage from the roof. This must be looked into.

 

We wish to thank the Municipality for the opportunity to go through the town and look into the problems and complaints received from residents and members of the Chamber.

REPORT ON MEETING

 

A meeting was held between the Mokopane Business Chamber, Dept of Traffic and Emergency, Mokopane SAPS, Col. Malebane, CPF Chairperson Mr Andy Goetsch, and Ward Cllr. Yolande Coetzee.

The new Department head of the Traffic & Emergency Mr. Marcus Mtombeni was welcomed and we wished him all the best with his new task.

The following matters were discussed:

  1. There is a Municipal Bylaw which will be enforced when the SAPS Mokopane or Dept of Traffic & Emergency is contacted by the public, regarding peace disturbance and they will attend to the matter as agreed upon. Patrols will be done more in the vicinity of the KFC in Thabo Mbeki and Van van Rensburg hall during evenings and weekends.

The Municipal Bylaw (section 21) states: “No person shall disturb the public peace in a street or public place, or on private premises by making noises or causing them to be made by shouting, quarrelling, fighting, singing or playing any type of musical or noise creating instrument or gramophone or by means of a radio, loudspeaker or similar device or by riotous, violent or immoral behavior.”

SAPS Mokopane:015 409 1418 / 1419 / 1420 or 081 505 9340

  1. The Dept of Traffic and Emergency will investigate the possibility of traffic cameras in town as well as safety cameras.
  2. The Chamber of Business is mostly concerned about the lawlessness in town. There are too many traffic violations and criminal offences taking place currently.

Traffic and SAPS confirmed that they will be more visible during the festive season and the public are

requested to respect the law in this  regard.

 

  1. The unallocated and unlawful hawkers are still a major issue according to the Business Chamber. Other Municipal districts and offices will be contacted of possible solutions.
  2. The unlawful use of the taxi patrol vehicles was discussed and further action will be taken
  3. Taxi loading bays were requested by the Chamber to alleviate the need for vehicles to stop in the traffic lanes to load or offload passengers.
  4. Trucks unloading goods and blocking one lane of traffic, especially with forklifts, will be attended to.

The meeting was closed with a request that this becomes a monthly meeting between the relevant stakeholders.

MOKOPANE

 

 

TELECOM OPTIC FIBRE CABLES

The Mogalakwena Municipality has responded to our inquiry regarding the installation of Liquid Telecom Fibre Optic cables in Mokopane.  The proposed route applied for is from the N1 via R518 (Zebediela Road).

 

The routes & streets which will be affected are R518, Fourie, Kruger, DuduMadisha, Sussex, Pretorius, Beitel, Simmentaler, Ext 17, Hani, Reboni, Mokopane Hospital.

 

The installation of Light fibre cables has damaged several water pipelines, which resulted in the recent water shortage in some areas.  The damages caused were repaired and some are still busy being attended to by the Municipality through a maintenance contractor.

 

We kindly request your patience with this project.
