Newtown’s artworks reignited By Staff Reporter news@inner-city-gazette.co.za

O

n Saturday July 14 at 13:00 the newly restored Newtown Heads and a colourful new art installation by the Imbali Visual Literacy Project will be revealed to the public at a festive launch on Mary Fitzgerald Square as part of the inaugural Newtown Now festival. The Newtown Heads, a public art installation of 560 carved wooden heads that sit on plinths across the Newtown Precinct, have become one of Newtown’s most iconic features over the last 17 years. In 2018 the City of Johannesburg’s Community Development Department of Arts, Culture and Heritage Directorate announced it would restore and repair these much-loved

public artworks, many of which have become severely damaged or destroyed over the years. Spearheading the refurbishment of the Newtown Heads is sculptor Americo Guambe who led the original team of artists who first created them in 2001. Made from old railway sleepers, each hand- carved head is unique, representing a sea of faces from across the African continent. Americo Guambe says of his Newtown Heads sculptures; “I wanted to show the people of Johannesburg that it is a city of many diverse cultures. And so the heads do that –

people of all races, genders, ages and cultures adorn the plinths around Newtown and the city.” The first stage of the refurbishment has seen the restoration and replacement of 196 heads around Mary Fitzgerald Square and along the pedestrianised walkway that connects the square to Helen Joseph Street. These heads will be joined by a new public art installation led by Imbali Visual Literacy Project that includes coloured flags which will be hung from the square’s lampposts and large screen-printed banners emblazoned with images of Newtown’s iconic buildings.

Newtown Now is a free festival that celebrates Newtown’s unique culture and heritage, at the heart of which is Newtown’s iconic public art installations. The one day festival on Saturday July 14 includes free walking tours, arts and heritage exhibitions, creative workshops, family events and a flea market. Participating venues and tour guides include: Sci-Bono Discovery Centre, the Worker’s Museum, The Market Theatre, Museum Africa, Market Photo Workshop, Stop Sign Art Gallery, 56 Pim Studio, Past Experiences, and the Newtown Junction Precinct.

Desperate man tries to secure job with fake ID It is alleged that, the suspected foreign national tried to falsely secure a position as an insourced security guard, at the Department of Public Safety’s Headquarters in Martindale, by using a fraudulent South African ID. JMPD officers arrest the fraudster after he presented himself with a fraudlent/ stolen SA ID as he tried to secure a job

By Staff Reporter news@inner-city-gazette.co.za

A

suspected foreign national was caught on Monday at the City of Johannesburg’s Department of Public Safety’s Headquarters in Martindale allegedly trying to secure a position as an insourced security guard using a fraudulent South African Identity Document. The city has been embarking on what it has decscribed as a monumental project to in-source 4‚000 security guards who were previously outsourced to various security service providers. MMC for public safety Michael Sun said the alleged fraudster was suspected to be a foreign national pretending to be a beneficiary of the project.

“After investigation by the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD)‚ officers assisting with the project arrested the suspect and took him to the Sophiatown SAPS for further prosecutions‚” Sun said. He added: “We have been carefully monitoring the people arriving for the insourced security positions and there have been several attempts by unscrupulous individuals trying to cheat the system in order to secure positions. “We will not tolerate such behaviour and the arrest of this fraudster is a stern warning to those trying to defraud the City and rob the rightful beneficiaries of their opportunities.” Sun said applicants would have to go through a two stage check system before presenting them-

selves at the interview desk which would eliminate the chances of fraud and impersonation. “The City is nearing the completion of the first stage of insourcing of 1‚600 security guards and the insourced security guards have already commenced with their work. “We will continue with the process and ensure this project is a success for the benefit of the residents of Johannesburg.”

“We will not tolerate such behaviour and the arrest of this fraudster is a stern warning to those trying to defraud the City and rob the rightful beneficiaries of their opportunities.”

#100MenMarch: Men make their voices heard By Staff Reporter news@inner-city-gazette.co.za

R

epresentatives of various sectors of society have this morning expressed support for the #100MenMarch, which is now underway in Tshwane. Among them are actors, social activists, NGOs and various organisations. Prominent actor Sello Maake kaNcube revealed that he is supporting the event because of his staunch opposition to gender-based violence. “I would like to see men taking responsibility for their own actions in restoring and going back to dignity,” he said. Ncube said men must make sure they take responsibility when they are fathers. “If we don’t father our children, who will? We are not men because we can make babies. We are men be

cause we can take care of those babies,” he said. Maake kaNcube urged men to use their power to build a better society. Javu Baloyi, the spokesperson for the Commission for Gender Equality, described today’s march as historic. “For the first time, we are partnering with government, faith-based and civil society organisations and Chapter Nine institutions… We’ve

had enough. “We want to see the scourge being arrested. We have realised that we have been working in silos. We are going to go to the provinces and make sure that all those committing barbaric, heinous acts are removed and locked away,” he said. Police Minister Bheki Cele joined hundreds of police cadets at the 100 Men March. Cele has admitted that the police sometimes do not act appropriately when domestic violence and gender abuse cases are reported. He said that not all police officers are rotten apples and that the cadets were brought to take part in the march to learn and appreciate the importance of working with communities. Representatives from churches and NGOs also attended the march.

Share skills - MMC Phalatse urges graduates

O

n Friday 6 July 2018 Dr Mpho Phalatse, the Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Human and Social Development, presided over a young women’s graduation ceremony. The ceremony was held to celebrate young women between the ages of 18 and 35 who completed a programme that takes young women on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment through modules such as: · Life skills: emotional, social, oc-

cupational, spiritual and parenting · Healthy Lifestyle: sexual, emotional and physical health · Safety · Career planning: skills development and job preparedness · Inner healing The City of Johannesburg’s Social Development Department, through its Women Empowerment Policy, saw the need to develop programmes to empower young women. Through community consultation, the department discovered that young women face a series of chal-

lenges such as poverty and underdevelopment, gender-based violence, teenage pregnancy, HIV and Aids and poor quality education. This year marks the fourth group of young women who have gone through the programme. In total, 319 young people graduated from the 2018 programme. What is remarkable about 2018 is that for the first time, 18 young men participated. Although the programme is designed for young women, the addition of young men will go a long way in changing the con-

sciousness of young men and building positive relationships between men and women. For some of the young people in attendance, this was their first posthigh school skills development programme. Everyone accepting their graduation certificate was met with boisterous cheers and claps. “It’s the first time I am in a space where I can express how I feel,” said Lebohang, one of the young ladies that completed the programme. MMC Phalatse motivated the young recipients and handed out cer-

tificates of completion to all. She passionately commented how education shapes the way you think and view life. She challenged each graduate to mentor other people and pass on the knowledge they learned. The Social Development Department is currently in talks with the City’s department of Economic Development to see how the graduates can be further upskilled so that they are more employable.

clubs are inquiring about his availability. Player agent Gibson Mahachi also revealed at an earlier stage that Baroka FC were also interested in Moyo amongst a number of other clubs. “Kelvin is an FC Platinum player and his club is best positioned to comment about their player, talk to them they will give you a proper position. “Yes, it is true that many clubs in South Africa are interested in him, it is not only one club that wants him but there are a number. “I cannot tell you the names of the clubs that are interested in his services for professional reasons, it is still premature,” he said. Moyo charmed scouts after providing an important defensive solidity that powered the Warriors to a sixth COSAFA Cup title. The 25-year-old was early this year reportedly a transfer target for compatriot Kaitano “Ngwenya” Tembo at Supersport United.

However, the defender, a Highlanders youth graduate, is determined to collect maximum points against his boyhood club at Mandava this afternoon. The 25-year-old defender is said to have left Zimbabwe for Mzansi, and the Siya crew can confirm that he began training with the club a little later in the week. Moyo is now trying to persuade Kaitano Tembo that he is deserving of a deal in the Absa Premiership. SuperSport are known to be on the lookout for a new centre back following the exit of Denwin Farmer for Maritzburg United, especially given the age of their two main central defenders, Morgan Gould and Clayton Daniels. It is thought that Moyo will be given around two weeks to stake his claim for a deal with Matsatsantsa, although at this point in time, there has been no indication as to whether that will happen or not.
