Good News from the Mother City

On Sunday night (27 November 2022) Cape Town’s mayor, Geordin Hill-Lewis switched on Cape Town’s famous Christmas lights for the first time since 2019.

Hill-Lewis pushed the button on the stage of the City Hall just after 20:30 to light up Adderley Street and surrounds with festive Christmas celebrations.

Mi Casa, Will Linley, Emo Adams and others entertained the crowd of almost 80.000.

The Mayor delivered a short message of hope to Capetonians, before switching on the lights and said Cape Town was an example of hope to the rest of the country and urged residents to welcome tourists from elsewhere in South Africa and abroad for the December holidays.

There’s also good news on the renewable energy front. Mayor Hill-Lewis joined one of the world’s leading battery producers, Polarium, from Sweden, who have opened a factory in Cape Town this year. “We aim to create jobs by ending loadshedding in Cape Town and with this new factory in Montague Gardens, Polarium is doing both!”.
