    arden Village in Maitland is

    becoming a beacon of positiv-

    ity with a project that is unit-

    ing the community.

    The Garden Village Green Light

    Community Project is one of the

    projects run in conjunction with

    The Cape TownProject Centre that

    brings students and faculty from

    Worcester Polytechnic Institute,

    located in Massachusetts, USA, to-

    gether with Cape Town partners to

    conduct projects that advance mu-

    tual learning and sustainable com-

    munity development in informal

    settlements and other disadvan-

    taged communities.

    Ronell Trout is one of the

    founders and chairperson of the

    project in Maitland and is passion-

    ate about making a difference in

    the suburb.

    She says it was started in 2011

    with community members decid-

    ing to tackle problems in the area

    with nine projects.

    We realised that people have to

    become proud of who they are,

    what they are capable of and how

    they can play a part in making a

    difference, she says.

    So we decided to create interest

    in gardening, safety awareness,

    home care, sports, dancing, music,

    drama, fitness and fundraising.

    All these programs are to keep

    childrenoff the street, to help toup-

    lift our underprivileged people and

    help creating jobs, according to

    Trout.

    Unemployment is very high

    with teenage pregnancy, drug and

    others substance abuse rife in our

    community.

    Jail for

    serial

    killer

    The Century City serial kill-

    er has been given seven life

    sentences after pleading

    guilty.

    Khangayi Sedumedi was

    sentenced in the Western

    Cape High Court on Thurs-

    day 9 June. He was given 40

    years imprisonment in addi-

    tional to the seven life sen-

    tences. He was arrested in

    January last year after the

    body of a woman, who had

    been raped and murdered,

    was found in the bushes near

    Acre Road.

    A trusted source revealed

    to Peoples Post in 2014

    (Grim find at station, 28

    October 2014) that police and

    paramedics had discovered

    the grisly remains of five

    women across the Transnet-

    owned property around the

    Century City train station.

    The bodies were severely de-

    composed,making it difficult

    to identify the victims and

    the circumstances around

    their deaths. Thebodieswere

    of black women aged be-

    tween 20 and 32.

    The 32-year-old resident of

    Guguglethu attacked seven

    women over the course of

    four years.

    Sedumedi asked women

    for their contact details, say-

    ing he had job opportunities

    for them. He would then lure

    them to isolated areas by

    claiming he had arranged for

    them to be interviewed for a

    job. He kidnapped, robbed

    and raped his victims one

    of which was a 15-year-old

    girl. In four cases, he mur-

    dered the victims.

    He was linked to 23 char-

    ges, of which he pleaded

    guilty to 21 charges.

    What if Peoples Post wasnt a

    newspaper, but a broadcasting

    agency?

    What if you werent bound to

    listen to hyper-local news im-

    pacting on the suburb you live

    in, but rather the southern sub-

    urbs as a whole?

    Would this contradict what

    Peoples Post stands for?

    Followers of the newspaper

    on Facebook would have no-

    ticed a new feature a weekly

    wrap-up video posted every

    Tuesday.

    In this short video some of

    the articles that appear in the

    newspaper are highlighted,

    giving you the biggest weekly

    news from the southern sub-

    urbs in bite-sized chunks. Some

    broadcasters bring you global

    news, some focus on a particu-

    lar city, but no-one targets a relatively

    small area such as the southern suburbs.

    This means, of course, that the newspa-

    per continues to set the bar of hyper-local

    content across all mediums.

    The same concept has been embraced by

    TygerBurger,Peoples Posts sister publica-

    tion in the northern suburbs.

    One of TygerBurgers journalists, Bren-

    den Ruiter, asked himself how one could

    spread the news in a digital world, and

    make it as easy as possible for Facebook

    users to stay up to date.

    The answer was simple. Why not a

    weekly news bulletin? We started a few

    weeks ago and the videos popularity is for

    all to see. Its still a work in progress, of

    course, with finer details still being ironed

    out.

    A couple of minutes a week to stay up to

    date with news headlines?

    The viewers convenience is clearly the

    watch word.

    Another imminent adoption will be the

    rolling text at the bottom, which will mean

    one canwatch thevideowithno sound if nec-

    essary.

    In essence it is a news broadcast with a

    very brief description of the chosen articles.

    If one snippet piques your interest then you

    can read more about it on the newspapers

    free website under the News24 domain.

    Peoples Post journalist and bulletin pre-

    senter Samantha Lee says the additional

    challenge has been an exciting venture thus

    far.

    It is no secret that news and the media

    aremoving into a digital space. This venture

    helps us satisfy the news needs of those on

    the move and assists our journalists in tell-

    ing the inspiring stories of others that may

    not have made it into the readers relevant

    editions. The response thus far is an indica-

    tion that this truly is a step in the right direc-

    tion for our publications.

    Find Peoples Post on Facebook and look

    out for ThisWeek in ... on a Tuesday after-

    noon at 17:00.

    Samantha Lee presents This Week in ..., which can be

    found weekly on Peoples Posts Facebook page.
