Cato Manor on the radio

Umkhumbane Focus, a Cato Manor community radio programme, will come alive on July 4 at 7 pm. It will be broadcasting on 101.5 fm courtesy of Highway Radio.

Cato Manor residents should ensure that they keep their ears glued to the radio as this promises to be one of the biggest milestones in the history of Cato Manor.
Umkhumbane Focus will kick off with the 16 team members introducing themselves on air. Almost all of them are novices with little experience of radio broadcasting. Their voices will reverberate as far as Richards Bay on the North Coast and Port Shepstone in the south.
Umkhumbane Focus will be broadcast every Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm. Programmes will include news broadcasts, crime watch, personality profiles of past and present Cato Manor ‘celebrities’, health issues and much more.
The programme is funded by the European Union as part of its community outreach programme and has been initiated as part of the CMDA’s communications' programme. Once Umkhumbane Focus gains independence, it will be called Siyaya Radio.

Business Fair ready to roll

The Cato Manor Development Association together with the European Union and McIntosh Xaba and Associates are proud to present the second Sanlam Cato Manor Small Business Fair on the weekend of June 30, July 1.

The fair will be held next to the Bellair Market in Bellair Road, and is aimed at all small and micro businesses in the Cato Manor area, as well as other interested businesses and the general public in the greater Durban area.
Cato Manor is home to over 80 000 residents and job creation is seen as a priority. The Sanlam Cato Manor Small Business Fair aims to create opportunities for local entrepreneurs to show off their work, network with other local entrepreneurs and forge links with potential suppliers and customers outside the boundaries of Cato Manor.
In addition to the exhibits, Sanlam will be hosting daily workshops aimed at sharing knowledge and skills with regard to small business development.
Daily entertainment will include local bands, the Steel Drum Band, P4 Radio DJs, and children’s entertainers from HOT Productions.
