The new councillor for Ward 86 will be Xolani Diniso, a born and bred resident of Lwandle.

The 36-year-old has been a community activist from a young age and is particularly focused on the advancement of youth from the ward. His involvement in the community includes being part of various ANC structures as chairperson, fulfilling the role of union representative for the South African Municipal Workers’ Union, co-ordinator for the Lwandle Youth Development Forum, member of Masoso Entertainment which focuses on the mitigating of suffering of the elderly and hunger relief in Lwandle – particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the organising of a youth sports tournament in partnership with Sport Against Crime South Africa and the Helderberg Local Football Association.

Outlining his focus for his five-year term in the ward, Diniso listed five main areas which he will look to improve – road infrastructure, sewerage, street lights, access to internet and crime prevention. “Together with the City of Cape Town’s departmental officials, I aim to change the conditions which the people of Ward 86 have to live in,” he said.

“Our roads are in a horrible state and need immediate improvement, while the sewer system cannot handle the increased population of the area and sanitation is a major issue. We also need to safeguard the area through the installation of street lights, so that the police can be more visible and our streets safer for people.”

Diniso further aims to investigate the installation of free Wi-Fi at his office so that unemployed youth can look and apply for jobs, while a project to build a youth centre is also high on his priority list.
