Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
CAPE Town mayor Dan Plato yesterday introduced a R6,2billion "pro-poor" budget that seeks to improve basic services and stimulate growth through infrastructure spending.
The budget allocates R679million for electricity infrastructure, R907million for water and sanitation projects, R810million for an integrated bus rapid transit system and R985million for completion of Green Point Stadium, R278million for landfills, R115million for the Fisantekraal waste water treatment works, R107million for optical fibre broadband infrastructure and R89million for completing road works on Hospital Bend.
Plato said the budget tried to balance infrastructure spending aimed at attracting investment and creating jobs, with providing basic services to people in the Mother City and improving living conditions on the Cape Flats.
"This is a pro-poor budget, or rather, pro-poverty alleviation," he said. - Sapa
