Wilderness Search and Rescue (WSAR) teams have been attempting to retrieve a body from rough terrain above Chapman’s Peak Drive near Hout Bay.

A bush-clearing team spotted the corpse earlier on Monday, but it is unclear how long it has been there.

WSAR spokesperson Alan Butcher said it is a tricky retrieval operation.

“It was a bush-clearing team that reported it this morning. The operation has been on the go since about 12pm,” he said.

City strikes deal in Hangberg land dispute

City strikes deal in Hangberg land dispute
Taken from eyewitnessnews.co.za  written by Themba Boyi:

Cape Town city officials and residents of Hangberg in Hout Bay hope a court-brokered mediation process will help them settle their land dispute.

In 2010 the area was the scene of violent clashes when the city council tried to relocate residents who had erected houses in fire breaks.

The court case to have them removed has been halted temporarily to allow for a mediation process.

A media briefing by Hangberg residents at the civic centre on Monday began as chaotically as much as the protests have been.

However, once the confusion had been cleared, chief mediator Brian Williams outlined several agreements struck between residents, the city and SANParks.

They entail a vow of cooperation among the various stakeholders as well as a promise from the city council not to relocate the residents.

Williams said the mediation efforts are an attempt by the different parties to settle the matter out of court.

The groups will be meeting again in three weeks’ time.

On January 29, 2011, in Environment, Weather, by Russell Hepworth

In an early post I reported that we were going to enter a La Nina cycle of weather, (for more on this follow this link.) At the time the phenomina was expected to give us a wet end to the winter, which it did, heavy rain for the north of the country in the summer and- if it stays with us, the pattern should be for a dry winter in the Western Cape.
