Springboks World Cup Success

After five days of unbridled joy and love from Pretoria to Soweto, from Joburg to Durban, East London to Port Elizabeth and, most moving of all, to captain Siya Kolisi’s hometown of Zwide, average South Africans from all walks of life shared in the pleasure of being the best at something. The Springboks vowed to fight on the field to continue to be the best team on the planet and not let this moment of rugby supremacy be just that – a moment. But they also asked South Africans to follow their example and unite as a country, like they did as a team.

South Africa's Investment Conference

South Africa’s second investment conference held last week was expected to raise hopes of the country’s economy being revived. President Cyril Ramaphosa’s aim was to build trust with foreign investors. He is determined to raise 100 million US dollars in the next five years. In the inaugural Investment Conference, in 2018, local and international investors pledged to inject as much as R300-billion into South Africa’s economy. According to Ramaphosa, this translated into thirty one projects that would boost the economy and create job opportunities. At this time, eight projects have been completed and seventeen more are in construction, or at the implementation stage.

World Cities Day

This year’s theme of World Cities Day is Better City, Better Life, while each year a different sub-theme is selected, to either promote successes of urbanisation, or address specific challenges resulting from urbanisation. It aims to promote the international community’s interest in implementing the New Urban Agenda globally and in enhancing cooperation among countries in meeting opportunities and addressing challenges of urbanization in cities. Over half the world’s population now live in cities. With the number expected to double by 2050, urbanization is one of the world’s most transformative trends. Urbanization poses several sustainability challenges related to housing, environment, climate change, infrastructure, basic services, food security, health, education, decent jobs, safety, and natural resources. Urbanisation can also present great opportunities and is a critical tool for sustainable development if it is done right.

Guests:

• Parks Tau Deputy Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs

• Vuyiswa Letsoko a lecturer in Town Planning at the University of Johannesburg

• Sithole Mbanga the CEO at SA Cities
