NANIMA’S POWER CRISIS SOLUTION This is a shot in the dark, no pun intended. Here goes.. ten marks for creativity. DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME IN CAPE TOWN. Why doesn’t the Western Cape put their clocks 2 hours back? For e.g. if it is 08h00 here in Johannesburg it is only 06h00 in Cape Town and if it is 20h00 in Johannesburg it is only 18h00 in Cape Town. How will this solve the problem? It will balance the load during the peak times in the mornings and the evenings. Why should Cape Town do this and not Jozi? The sun sets so late in Cape Town, they are layed back there, they deserve to be in another time zone. Come Kaapenaartjies, do it for your country. If the Europeans can adapt to Daylight savings time anyone can. We can call it POWER SAVING TIME. What is your opinion email: Agree – Cape Town save power, save SA. or No way Jozi’

IJTIMA LENASIA International Ijtima in Lenasia Johannesburg – The K43 near Volta road in Lenasia was closed off on Friday after about 20 000 people arrived for the Ijtima Muslim festival, Johannesburg metro police said. “Due to the huge amount of people in attendance and the amount of traffic, the road had to be closed off and will remain closed until Sunday afternoon,” said Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar. He said motorists were advised to use the Golden Highway and Nirvana drive as alternative routes. IJTIMA is held opposite Lenasia Muslim School. If you take the Lenasia offramp you pass fruit and veg, pass trade route mall, jiswa, lenmed, squatter camps. If you pass the caltex garage you have passed the Ijtima site and you were sleeping because you didn’t see the tents and the thousands of cars.

Tree of Life Comedy is a one-man show performed by Fahruq Valley-Omar, a theatre stalwart for the past 40 years and directed by Zane Meas of 7de Laan. The play is based on the writings of Paulo Coelho and draws from various cultures, with the central theme being Faith. The motivating factor is to create a greater awareness in the diversity of religion as practiced by the peoples of South Africa, thereby working towards a much needed tolerance. It is presented in vignettes, each representing different cultures, themes and religions, which are insightful, sad, celebratory, often humorous and didactic in nature.

Lawn Care Watering your lawn every day does more harm than good — both to the lawn and the environment. Daily watering produces shallow roots; by watering less, you can make your grass grow roots that are deeper and healthier.
