When 5fm's Sureshnie Rider was awarded R100 000 she decided to give it to a cause close to her heart: young people. Winner of 2011's MTN Y'ello Rose award, Rider decided to split the money between the Chatsworth Youth Centre and Gugu Mahlangu's tuition at Rhodes University.
Yesterday (Sunday, 18 August 2013) there was again a problem with water supply, due to a faulty pump at Waainek. No sooner had water begun to flow, supply to a few residences was interrupted.
