first_imgA Letterkenny man led Gardai on a pursuit through the town after being spotted holding a bottle of wine while driving.John McDonagh fled from Gardai after being reported to be drinking and driving at Ballyboe on March 5th last.After being approached by Gardai he fled and drove up through the Long Lane and Glencar areas of the town where he was pursued by Gardai with flashing sirens. McDonagh, 32, tried to overtake another car in his way and mounted a footpath but crashed into the other car.The defendant, of 19 Cashel Park, Lisnennan, Letterkenny, drove on down Convent Road in his Volkswagen Passat and forced two pedestrians to jump out of the way.Gardai again tried to stop McDonagh but he continued to drive towards the Oldtown area of the town before being hemmed in and arrested by Gardai.Solicitor Kieran Dillon told Letterkenny District Court his client had argued with his partner earlier that day and had decided to go drinking.He said his client was getting married this year, was very sorry for what had happened and accepted he will be off the road for a long time.Judge Paul Kelly said the incident was at the upper end of the scale.“This was an aggrevated incident. He was stopped by Gardai and then tried to escape and evade Gardai over a length of time. God knows what might have happened if he was not trapped.“He also collided with another vehicle and put a number of pedestrians and Gardai in danger,” he said.Judge Kelly ordered a community service report and said he was considering imposing 200 hours community service for both charges of dangerous driving.PEDESTRIANS FORCED TO FLEE AS GARDAI PURSUED DRINK-DRIVER THROUGH LETTERKENNY was last modified: June 27th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Joburg’s R500m broadband planJoburg’s R500m broadband plan

first_img7 March 2007Johannesburg has invited companies to bid for a R500-million public-private project to build its own broadband network, joining a growing list of South African cities that are going it alone to provide their residents with cheaper voice and data services.Other South African municipalities that are exploring their own broadband options, rather than relying on state company Telkom, include Cape Town, Tshwane (Pretoria) and eThekwini (Durban).Last week, the city issued a request for information from interested companies that own or have access to a value-added network service licence to tender for the Joburg Broadband Network project.The project is aimed at bringing down telecommunications costs in the city, as well as improving service delivery in areas ranging from traffic control to library services.The Johannesburg metro municipality already owns telecoms infrastructure and has a private telephone network licence. The city plans to offer internet bandwidth at a lower cost to its departments, businesses and schools, and to cater for an expected increase in demand for bandwidth during the 2010 Fifa World Cup.Speaking to Business Report, Douglas Cohen, a consultant in the city’s department of economic development, said Johannesburg would invest about R100-million in the project, with the private sector asked to finance the remaining R400-million.The city expects the private partners to make money from the project through selling its spare capacity to businesses and consumers, and possibly also charging the municipality to use the network.“They are getting access to start a new network. They could become a wholesaler of lower-cost telephony and data and they will have the city as an anchor client,” Cohen said.According to Business Day, Cohen expects the country’s large telecoms and IT companies to bid for the project, as well as smaller IT firms, possibly in partnership with foreign investors.Because of the size of the municipal area, Cohen said the contract might have to be divided between more than one bidder, and a variety of technologies are likely to be needed for different areas.As such, Johannesburg City Power is backing the project, as it is likely to include internet connectivity over powerlines, which they have been experimenting with.“The purpose of the broadband project is primarily to build a strong information technology infrastructure for the city and to bring information and communications technology closer to citizens at a cost-effective price,” Jabulani Zimu from the office of the city’s chief information officer told Business Report.The city expects to appoint the successful bidder for the project before the end of 2007.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

CAG to audit CWG 2010 projects within three monthsCAG to audit CWG 2010 projects within three months

first_imgWith a controversy raging over the Commonwealth Games expenditures, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) on Monday said it will complete within three months a “comprehensive” audit of the projects.The report will be confidential and submitted only to Parliament, CAG Vinod Rai said.”We will complete the entire audit process of CWG in three moths time. It is going to be a gigantic task. At least 20 different organisations will be involved,” he said addressing auditors that included some from abroad.”If we take six to eight months time and submit the report in 2012, then the entire purpose of exercise would be lost. We will ensure that results of the audit are made available at the earliest. It is not only about the expenditures incurred,” he said.The CAG said while auditing they would have to see whether the original activity or the objective has been fulfilled. “Whether there is a physical outcome, accountability established and there there has been optimal utilisation of money,” Rai said.He said it would be a comprehensive audit which would cover all the institutions involved in the Games. “Ours will be a report which will be shared only with the Parliament,” he said while addressing the 97th international training programme on auditing in an IT environment.The CAG is vetting the expenditures incurred in different Commonwealth Games related projects.The audit process by CAG teams began in the middle of August. However, later it was halted between September 24 and October 14 in view of the Games.advertisementlast_img read more
