New ward councillor

. Well done, Kevin Southgate, on your election for ward 72. Looking forward to seeing what you can do.

. I know you’ll be great. Your track record speaks for itself. - Maritz

. Congratulations on being elected councillor for ward 72, Mr Southgate. Your colleagues are not correct in saying that you have to dress up and be chauffeur-driven. No, if you can deliver like Mr Burger did, then what you wear is irrelevant. It’s what you do and deliver that is important. I wish you well in all future endeavors. - Carol Thomas

. Congratulations, Kevin Southgate! May you have a successful term as councillor. I really like the casual and hands-on approach. - Eileen Bownes

. Congrats to Mr Southgate. Could we have his contact details please in case of emergencies? - Lucy McGowan

. I would like to congratulate Kevin Southgate on his victory on 1 April. Knowing that the people did not vote for him, but for the party he represents, I trust he will do a good job.

Sports field. How come all other areas are being upgraded with sport fields, but we in Lavender Hill get nothing and our youth are all turning out to become gangsters? We had a meeting with the ward councillor, but that doesn’t seem to help. We are still waiting for her to come back to us.

Steenberg police. The people here are scared to talk, because the police in Steenberg are only standing there when people are killed
