Stadsraad van Pretoria gaan in die volgende 4 maande 13,000 voorafbetaalde kragmeters vervang na bevind is dat PEU Capital Partners se meters nie geldig is

Die stadsraad van Pretoria wil die omstrede elektriese meters vervang, en daarvoor het hulle glo vier maande tyd om 13,000 te vervang. Die 13,000 vooruitbetaal meters moet ingevolge ’n hofbeslissing vervang word omdat die meter met ’n ongeldige kontrak ingesit is en glo ook onwettige toestelle is. Talle werkers moet nou deur sekere gebiede se geboue beweeg om te kyk of die meters in die geboue wettig is, aangesien die PEU Capital Partners se meters nie geldig is nie. Dit beteken glo dat die multi-miljard se daaglikse betalings wat die stad aan PEU maak in terme van die kontrak, word as onbekostigbaar beskou en sal ook tot ’n einde kom. Daar bestaan onduidelikheid wie verantwoordelik gehou word vir die koste om die meters te vervang, en of dit maar weer die onskuldige verbruiker is watt moet opdok. Deur: Die Vryburger Hierdie berig weerspieël nie noodwendig die mening van SAUK-nuus nie.

HUGE LAND CLAIM IN CENTURION – Alarmingly the land claim also includes Laerskool Rooihuiskraal and a piece of the Danie Joubert N1 highway, property affected is estimated at over R4Billion

As we reported before, land claims in suburban areas are becoming the norm. The stark reality is that people should realize that these land claims are a far greater threat than what they initially thought. Front National attended a meeting on 19 February 2019, held by Afriforum at Leriba Lodge, pertaining to the pending land claim in Centurion. The land claim stretches over 4000 hectares and it effects more than 2000 households. This includes areas such as: Zwartkop, Doornkloof, Rooihuiskraal, Olievenhoutbosch, Hoekplaats, Trigaardspoort, The Reeds, Brakfontein, Heuweloord, Louwlardia, Kosmosdal and Midstream. Some properties have up to seven claims on the same property and each claim must be dealt with individually. Alarmingly the land claim also includes Laerskool Rooihuiskraal (with 2000 Afrikaans pupils) and a piece of the Danie Joubert N1 highway. The total value of all the property affected is estimated at over R4Billion. The attendance was huge and more than 1000 peop…

Tuks faseer tans Afrikaans uit as onderrigtaal – slegs Engels sal nou as primêre taal van kommunikasie en administrasie gebruik word

Die Universiteit van Pretoria tans besig om Afrikaans as die amptelike onderrigtaal by al sy kampusse en koshuise uit te faseer. Die universiteit sal nou slegs Engels as primêre taal van kommunikasie en administrasie gebruik. Rikus Delport, woordvoerder van die Universiteit, het gesê die beleid is in 2016 deur die universiteit se raad en senaat aangeneem ná 'n uitgebreide konsultasieproses en aanbevelings van alle belanghebbende partye. "Die verandering in beleid is daarop gemik om maatskaplike samehorigheid te fasiliteer en die universiteit sal steeds meertaligheid omhels en aanmoedig om eenheid te bevorder en gelyke geleenthede vir sprekers van alle Suid-Afrikaanse tale te bied," het hy gesê. Delport het gesê die besluit van die onderskeie belangegroepe is deur die bevindings ingelig dat die persentasie studente wat hul huistaal as Afrikaans aangemeld het, tussen 1992 en 2015 van 85% tot 30% afgeneem het. "In 2016 het ongeveer 18% van die studente 'n voorkeur v…

Kleinfontein – Ons God, Ons Volk, Ons Land

Kleinfontein is 'n nedersetting naby Pretoria, wat in 1992 deur Afrikaners as 'n kulturele dorp gestig is. Dei dorp is gestig deur afstammelinge van die oorspronklike Voortrekkers of Boere wat selfbeskikking gesoek het  in 'n outonome Volkstaat. Die kriteria om in Kleinfontein te woon, is gebaseer op kulturele, taalkundige, tradisionele en godsdienstige oortuigings. Die inwoners van die dorp assosieer hulself met die Voortrekker-geskiedenis, die Bloedrivierverbond en ander "historiese feite wat verband hou met ons stryd om onafhanklikheid vir die Afrikaners." Vanaf 2012 het  Kleinfontein een van Suid-Afrika se oorblywende blanke alleen-nedersettings geword en is deur die Gautengse wetgewer as 'n kulturele gemeenskap erken. Die grond wat oos van Pretoria geleë is en vandag  as  Kleinfontein bekend  staan het in 1988 tydens die viering van die 150ste herdenking van die Groot Trek onder Afrikaneraktiviste se aandag gekom.  Die plaas het hul aandag getrek omrede dit as ’n …

Transforming Pretoria’s heritage landscape continue

On Friday, Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa gave a report-back on work being done to transform South Africa’s heritage landscape. He noted it was necessary to continue to dismantle the apartheid social structure, including the removal of colonial and apartheid-era monuments and place names. The process initiated by Mthethwa in 2015 was a response to incidents surrounding statues in public spaces, after the demand for the removal of a statue of Cecil John Rhodes at the University of Cape Town. It sparked a national debate over the transformation of the heritage landscape to foster a new national identity. Among the resolutions taken was that there was a need to create civic awareness and national consciousness using shared symbols such as the flag and national anthem, while offensive names and other "symbols of hate" should be removed. However, this did not mean every old name and statue had to be removed. Where such symbols reflected separate histories, an i…

Teetuin by die Sammy Marks-mu­seum moet deure sluit ná 25 jaar

Eers het die Pretoria Boeremark by die Pioniersmu­seum in die slag gebly, toe is dit Tant Miertjie se kombuisrestaurant by die Willem Prinsloo-museum wat sy deure moet sluit. Nou is die nuutste slagoffer van Ditsong Museums van Suid-Afrika glo The Rose Garden-teetuin by die Sammy Marks-mu­seum, wat sy deure ná 25 suksesvolle jare moet sluit. Volgens Werner Weinbeck (74), eienaar van die teetuin, is dit vir hom vreeslik hartseer om sy deure nou ná al die jare te sluit omdat Ditsong Museums glo besluit het om die teetuin op tender uit te sit. Werner Weinbeck, eienaar van The Rose Garden-teetuin by die Sammy Marks-museum, moet sy gereelde klante nou ná 25 suksesvolle jare groet. “Hierdie was my plek. Dis so mooi en rustig hier by die mu­seum. Ek het elke dag met ’n lied in my hart kom werk. Dis die einde van ’n baie goeie hoofstuk in my lewe. Ek is verpletter, maar ek het nie ’n ander keuse as om aan te beweeg nie,” sê Weinbeck. Benewens die teetuin het Weinbeck ook…

Oom Paul statue excluded from monument; EFF threat to topple it

OOM Paul’s statue at Church Square is the subject of debate yet again, after the city council resolved to support a motion by the EFF that it be excluded from the Lalela Freedom of Expression Monument. However, there is still no mention of whether the statue will be removed or not. The resolution was passed during a council sitting on Thursday. It was opposed by the ANC, which said this would be “against the party policies on statues and heritage”. Last year, mayor Solly Msimanga said Church Square would be transformed into a place of open-air entertainment, called the Lalela Freedom of Expression Monument. Work has already started at the historic site. Msimanga said the Lalela project was aimed at bringing about vibrancy in public activities in the inner city. At the time, he said the statue would remain in place as the inner city regeneration project changed the face of Church Square around it. EFF councillor MoAfrika Mabogwane proposed that Paul Kruger’s st…

Pretoria hijacking hotspots identified

With people getting ready for the upcoming holiday season, it is natural to be slightly more relaxed at this time of the year. Relaxation mode, however, might be the worst thing to do while behind the wheel during the holiday and festive season. Hijackings, common as they are, tend to happen more frequently during the festive season. Motorists in and around the city are required to be more vigilant at all times to avoid becoming a statistic. It is also advisable for motorists to familiarise themselves with hijacking hotspots. Compiled by the SAPS, various tracking companies and the South African crime intelligence bureau, Pro-ActiveSA made an all-in-one list of hijacking hotspot areas. Pro-ActiveSA said: “It will provide the reader with a visual overview of areas to be most aware of.” Areas and streets prone to hijacking occurrences include: – Es’kia Mphahlele Drive – Paul Kruger Street – R55 – Burnett Street – Delfi Avenue and Garsfontein Ro…
