CITY OF CAPE TOWN  30 JUNE 2019 STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S EXECUTIVE MAYOR, ALDERMAN DAN PLATO 
City calls on residents to comment on renaming of District Six street


Following a request to rename Keizersgracht in District Six to its historical name of Hanover Street, I am now calling on residents and interested and affected parties to share their views as part of an official public participation process. Read more below:

With the legacy of Apartheid still present in many aspects of our daily lives, we need to be mindful of the ways in which we can contribute to addressing the wrongs that were committed. One such way is to restore historical names of places, streets and facilities that may have been changed during Apartheid. While there are many hardships that people will remember, there are some names that bring joy to our communities, and with that the memories that have positive associations. 

The City recently received a proposal for Keizersgracht in District Six to be renamed Hanover Street. 

The forced removals that took place during Apartheid will always bring painful memories to those who resided in District Six. The proposal is that the renaming could assist in igniting good memories for those who suffered from and experienced these removals.

I am now calling on residents to please share their views with us so that the City Council can consider the comments, and make an informed decision about the proposal to rename Keizersgracht.

The public participation process will officially take place as from 15 July to 26 July 2019. However, Capetonians can already submit their comments and share their stories with us by sending emails to naming@capetown.gov.za

Please let us know if you agree with the proposal to have this street name changed to Hanover Street, and tell us why.

Written submissions can also be dropped off at the City’s subcouncil offices. Adverts will soon be published in newspapers across the city and we will be drawing attention to the process on the radio too.

Empowering women to create change

More than R28 million was allocated to the Women for Change programme in the past financial year, which helped more than 1 500 women access essential tools and training to help make a difference in their communities.

Previously known as Women in Rental Stock, the Women for Change programme employs women via the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) where they receive training and education in a number of areas. These include disaster risk management, foetal alcohol syndrome awareness, domestic violence, as well as wellness and health promotion. They are then deployed to uplift areas where City-owned housing is situated and where there are high levels of unemployment, social challenges and crime.

The women exit the programme empowered with the knowledge of how to help log service requests related to the upkeep of buildings and streets, the ability to help provide home-based care services to the elderly and how to link substance abusers and domestic violence victims with relevant services.

If you know someone who could benefit from the programme, tell them to visit theirnearest subcouncil office to register on our Job Seekers Database. The programme runs from July 2019 to June 2020.
