Mayor Gesie says "SPEAK OUT AGAINST ABUSE"

On Friday, 25 November 2016, the annual campaign for 16 days of Activism for no violence against women and children began.  Every year the issue of domestic violence and abuse of women and children are highlighted during these 16 days. Unfortunately abuse continues to take place 364 days of the year, every year.

The definition of abuse is also widely misunderstood. People expect abuse to be accompanied by clearly visible scars and bruises. Unfortunately abuse can be much more nuanced and difficult to detect. Abuse is often verbal, emotional and even financial.  This makes it difficult for the victim to admit that they are being abused.  The gender of the abuser can also be problematic because authorities tend to only identify men as culprits and not women. Women can abuse other women. Women can also abuse their male partners and their children.

The theme for the Provincial Department of Community Safety’s campaign this year is: Speak Out! Silence to Strength. I fully support their campaign and this theme. As a society we need to speak out. We must talk about abuse. It is important that we not only speak about the victimisation, but that we educate vulnerable groups about what abuse is, the forms it may take and who the perpetrators may be. The goal is never to frighten people, but to inform and educate them on how to break the cycle. It is also of critical importance that government educate authorities who work with victims to treat them with the necessary support, empathy and sensitivity. If these structures are not working, victims will not have the courage to report abuse. I call on the National and Provincial governments to make sure that the victims of abuse are treated and supported in such a way as to make them stronger and not re-victimise them.

I want to encourage victims to please speak out. By breaking the silence you can break the power of abuse. This is often the most difficult first step to take. Please, speak out! There are many of us who witness abuse and do nothing. I want to encourage you to speak out as well. If you keep silent, you are allowing abuse to happen. Speak out! Let us break the silence during this year’s 16 Days of Activism and continue to speak about this throughout the year. Let us move from Silence to Strength.

Ten einde water op die mees doeltreffende wyse te bespaar, word alle gebruikers in die munisipaliteit aan waterbeperkings onderwerp. Strenger waterbeperkings om 20% water te bespaar, word met ingang 1 Desember 2016 ingestel as gevolg van die laer as normale damvlakke. Die huidige 2016/17 - 20%-waterbesparingstariewe sal geld.

Dames en Here

Goeie middag, good afternoon, molweni, as-salaam alaikum.

Dit is vir my ‘n wonderlike voorreg om vanmiddag hier te kan staan en die opening van Aarbeifees te behartig. Dit is so lekker om in Jamestown te wees vir die geleentheid. Hierdie fees verteenwoordig werklik die hart en geskiedenis van Jamestown. Aarbeie staan bekend as die juwele en gelukbrinngers van Jamestown, en dit is glad nie moeilik om te sien hoekom dit so genoem word, as ek om my kyk nie. Jamestown is soos ‘n wegsteek geheim hier tussen die berge en dit is lekker om hierdie pragtige dorpie te kan deel met besoekers van heinde en verre.

Hierdie wonderlike geleentheid wys regtig die “Magic”van Jamestown en sy mense. Die fees maak ook ‘n belangrike bydrae tot toerisme vir die groter Stellenbosch area. Dit is ‘n gemeenskapsprojek en ons is baie dankbaar vir die ondersteuning van Checkers en die samewerking van die Weber Toerismenetwerk en Stellenbosch 360, om hierdie gemeenskapsinisiatief te dryf en te ondersteun. Julle wys dat wanneer besigheid saam met gemeenskappe werk, wonderlike dinge kan gebeur.

Die fees bied werklik iets vir almal en ek wil al die besoekers aanmoedig om die meeste te maak van die naweek en deel te neem aan al die aktiwiteite. Doen moeite om die uitstallings van gemeenskapserfenis te besoek en ondersteun die plaaslike kunstenaars wat deel neem aan die fees. Ek wil al die besoekers aanmoedig, verdiep julle self in alles wat Jamestown u bied, dit is werklik uniek.

Baie Welkom in Jamestown en baie welkom binne Stellenbosch. Geniet die fees, maak seker u koop en geniet hope van hierdie lekker rooi vruggies en ek weet, ons sal u weer volgende jaar hier sien!

Dankie

Goeie middag, good afternoon, molweni, as-salaam alaikum.

Met Oktober amper verby, lê net November tussen ons en die einde van 2016. Met die plaaslike regeringsverkiesings wat so laat plaas gevind het, het ons termyn met die spreekwoordelike “bang” begin en ek is bly om te sê ons kan reeds ‘n positiewe verskil sien in die uitvoer van ons pligte.

An important new forum is the Mayor Meets Business initiative. The first meeting for this initiative is taking place on Thursday, 27 October. The purpose of this initiative is to create and build strong relationships with business, to ensure mutual cooperation. This will create economic opportunities that will benefit the broader community and the region. This forum will create the opportunity for us to engage with business representatives from the greater Stellenbosch area, so that we can discuss opportunities as well as address obstacles to growth and opportunity. It is important to have the input of business on issues and the environment that directly affects them. Their inputs are extremely valuable in creating a favourable economic climate.

Ek het ook die Swart Besigheidsforum ontmoet as deel van my plan vir nouer samewerking tussen die plaaslike regering en besigheid. Hierdie besigheidsforum verteenwoordig baie klein en mikro besighede wat deel uitmaak van die informele sektor in Stellenbosch. Hierdie klein en mikro besighede, wat ook bekend staan as SMME’s, maak ‘n geweldige groot bydrae tot die informele ekonomie. In 2013, het die Afrika Ontwikkelingsbank gevind dat ongeveer 55% van Sub-Saraha Afrika se BBP vanaf die informele sektor af kom en dit dan deur middel van SMME’s. Mense wat in hierdie areas werksaam is, verteenwoordig ook dikwels van die mees kwesbare groepe in ons samelewing naamlik vrouens en kinders. Daarom is internaksie en samewerking met die besigheidskomponent van ons dorpe, uiters belangrik.

Ek sal deurlopend terugvoer bied oor hierdie interaksies om seker te maak die gemeenskap weet watter vordering ons maak.

During October Stellenbosch Municipality hosted the International Disaster Risk Reduction Day at Klapmuts. The theme for this year is Live to Tell. The focus is to reduce the number of fatalities during any disaster by being better prepared to prevent and/or manage disasters that occur. By preparing for every eventuality and educating the public we can prevent loss of life during times of disasters. It is important for all role-players and stakeholders to actively participate in disaster prevention and management. As a municipality, we perform exceptionally well in times of disaster, doing everything possible to minimise the loss of property and lives. With another dry season starting, we again face the risk of fires. I urge all our residents to act responsibly at all times.

Moenie sigaretstompies by motorruite uitgooi nie. Moenie rommel strooi nie; wees versigtig wanneer u vuurmaak om kos voor te berei, veral in winderige toestande. Maak seker dat alle kole goed geblus word wanneer jy klaar is. Dit is klein goedjies wat ‘n lewe kan spaar. Baie dankie aan ons toegewyde rampbestuurspanne op provinsiale en distriksvlak. Ons eie Wetstoepassings- en Brandweerdienste lewer ook uiters waardevolle bydraes tydens enige rampe. Sterkte vir die nuwe brandseisoen wat voorlê. Onthou Rampbestuur is ons almal se verantwoordelikheid!

Met die oog op die ontwikkeling en vooruitgang van ons Dorpe sowel as ons industrië het die Burgemeesterskomitee, Maandag, vergader met Alan Winde, die Wes-Kaapse Minister vir Ekonomiese Ontwikkeling en Toerisme asook Landbou. Die gesprek het gefokus op geleenthede vir besigheid, toerisme en landbou en watter samewerkingsgeleenthede daar is met ander rolspelers in die privaat sowel as openbare sektor. Ek moet sê, die vergadering het interresante moontlikhede opgelewer en ek is baie opgewonde om hierdie moontlikhede te begin verken. Ek sal u beslis op hoogte hou wanneer ons hierdie moontlikhede in realiteite begin omskep. Wees verseker, daar lê opwindende tye voor wat ‘n baie positiewe uitwerking op die gemeenskap sal hê.

In our efforts to create a healthier society, I would like to remind you that November is also Movember! Movember is an international initiative to raise awareness about men’s health, especially cancers affecting men. Men’s health is an issue that is not talked about enough because it creates the perception of weakness. The Movember Campaign aims to change this negative stereotype and to get people talking about men’s health and how it affects the greater society. To show you support for men’s health, men are encouraged to grow a moustache for November. Spread the message by posting a picture with your moustache on social media, and have a look at the Movember South Africa website on how you can give support to this cause.

Soos julle sou agterkom, is ons aan die begin van die somer. Hierdie somer sal egter ook ‘n uitdaging wees vir ons as regering. Die winterseisoen het nie genoeg reen gebring nie en alhoewel ons damvlakke gestyg het gedurende die reenseisoen, is die vlakke reeds laer as wat dit dieselfde tyd verlede jaar was. Die stad Kaapstad besluit vandag tydens hul raadsvergadering oor die implementering van vlak 3 waterbeperkings. Indien hulle vlak 3 beperkings implementer sal dit ons ook raak en sal ons as Raad ook die besluit in die gesig staar binne die volgende maand of wat. Inwoners word gemaan om asseblief spaarsamig met water te werk en hulle te bepaal by waterbeperkings. Die situasie word in ‘n ernstige lig beskou en indien ons nie die nodige beperkings kan bewerkstellig nie, sal dit nodig wees om strenger alternatiewe te oorweeg. Gaan die ekstra myl en spaar asseblief water.

We take our obligations to protect the environment very seriously! That is why I am so pleased to share with you that Stellenbosch Municipality won the award for innovation at the recently held provincial Greenest Municipality Award. We received this award specifically for our Green Filter Project; the Adopt a River project which focuses on river stewardship; the Free 2 Grow project that looks at food security; and our collaboration with Global Carbon Exchange for the pilot of the installation of the bio-digester at Spier. Stellenbosch also received recognition as the municipality that made the greatest improvement in green leadership, compliance, institutional arrangements and public participation. Congratulations and thank you to the officials who made this possible. Please, keep up the wonderful work. It makes a difference in the legacy we leave our children.

‘n Laaste woord van gelukwense gaan ook aan die uitvoerende Onder-Burgemeester, Nyaniso Jindela, wat verkies is as ‘n lid van die nasionale uitvoerende komitee van SALGA, asook die Speaker, Donovan Joubert wat verkies is tot lid van die provinsiale uitvoerende komitee van SALGA. Dis wonderlik om te weet ons belange word goed verteenwoord.

Baie dankie, thank you, enkosi khakulu.
