Die sowat 18 maande wat verloop het sedert ek tot raadslid van wyk 10 in die Munisipaliteit Overstrand verkies is, was geweldig uitdagend en het my by veel meer as wykskomiteevergaderings, insette vir die Geïntegreerde Ontwikkelingsplan en die Begroting en sakelyste vir raads- en portefeuljekomiteevergaderings betrokke gemaak.

This year will be remembered for the violent protest action that occurred over a two week period from end August to middle September. There are different and diverse opinions of what exactly caused it: the difficult economic situation with accompanying poverty and unemployment, the impact of the fast changing demography in our area, the political tension in the country which also led to racial polarization, municipal service delivery.
