The City of Cape Town and the executive Mayor will be holding a civi honour ceremony today. Protocol and Mayoral Events spokesperson Fritz Marx says “the first person that is being honoured is Estelle van de Merwe a traffic officer bases at the Hill Star Traffic Department in Ottery. She is the only woman traffic inspector on a motorcycle, who is best known for removing unroadworthy taxis from the road.”

The second officer is Morné Roodman who is a compliance officer from Gordon’s Bay traffic department, who saved two boys from the middle of a dam when they were stuck 30 meters from shore. Roodman dove in and brought them back to shore, Marx says. “The parents of the boys recommended for recognition to the Mayor.”

The ceremony will take place at the Cape Town Civic Centre.
