It's just 12 days until the Local Government Elections, which are due to take place on the 1st of November. As we've been on this show over the last few weeks, we're touching base with our Eyewitness News Reporters who have been on the ground, listening to the demands of community members and listening to the promises of politicians.
Today, we find out more about a township in the south Peninsula, Masiphumelele. Situated about 20km out of the city centre, the township is located near the neighboring communities of Kommetjie, Capri Village, and Noordhoek,
For many Capetonians, the only time they hear about Masiphumelele is in news bulletins, when a fire rips through the informal settlement, displacing thousands of people.
To find out more, we’re joined by EWN reporter Kaylynn Palm.

We have the pleasure of meeting someone in person with who we’ve been communicating virtually for over a year – because it was a year ago yesterday that we introduced you to Stephen McGown’s book about his time as a hostage in the Malian desert. The book 6 Years with Al Qaeda was co-written with Tudor Caradoc Davies and became a best seller within a few weeks of its release. It was no surprise that it went on to win the Adult non-fiction category at the South African Book Awards earlier this year.LISTEN TO PODCAST
