Touch Prosthetics is a spin-off of the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Based in Durban 🇿🇦, they are the leading innovator in Prosthetic Hands on the African continent 🌍. The team took part at the 2020 virtual edition of the CYBATHLON organized by ETH Zürich in Switzerland 🇨🇭 with their TouchHand prosthetic. The 🇨🇭 Embassy is proud to have supported and facilitated this Swiss - South African scientific collaboration 🇨🇭🇿🇦 in robotics. The spin-off seeks to propel the prosthetics field forward and hopes to soon produce devices locally and make the technology more accessible for underprivileged amputees and the general public.

Update: Provision of Data to Students for Online Learning

To date a total of 27 766 students subscribing to the major Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) have received data bundles that enable them to participate in online learning during the lockdown period.
While some MNOs took longer than expected in delivering the data bundles and some teething problems were initially encountered, all successful activations should now reflect in the data balances on the provisioned sim cards.

Unfortunately, some of the numbers submitted to MNOs were rejected for a variety of reasons.

In particular, Telkom flagged some numbers as being ineligible to participate in this scheme. This is a result of these Telkom sims primarily roaming other networks such as Vodacom. The students impacted by this network restriction have been emailed separately to identify potential alternatives to enable them to benefit from this data opportunity.

In order to streamline queries going forward, students are requested to use an online form to register their query. This new system is aimed at delivering a quicker turnaround time to any challenges experienced.

Any student who has still not received the mobile data should fill in the online form at by Thursday, 14 May so that this can be fast-tracked. We wish to ensure that all queries are resolved speedily.

In addition, please note that the Frequently Asked Questions, to be found on the same page, have been updated in response to many of the queries received.

Please make sure that you read the Guidelines for Data Management to get the most out of your allocated data.

As students settle down in the first quarter of the year, many are concerned about financial security: how and where to access bursaries, internships and graduate placement programmes.
As a means of addressing these fears, GradStar has created the GradStar app, where recruiters from top companies in SA are able to search for graduates and students to earmark them for current and future programmes.
To this end, we would like YOU to please:
1. Download the GradStar App on your mobile devices and register (this allows recruiters to see what the students are studying and match them to the correct programmes).
2. Enter the DHL GradStar Awards (this process will assist with various workshops and work-readiness assessments and the eventual recognition of the Top 100 students in the country).
Please see the testimonials below from 3 of our current Top 100 students.
We look forward to welcoming each and every student and graduate to the GradStar Community, which serves the best interest of our youth, and which is why it is FREE to all students and graduates.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality would like to inform residents that the latest tests have shown a deterioration in our water quality.

The current drought facing the City, with the resultant low dam levels and fluctuating reservoir levels, is one of the major contributing factors.

Through vigorous routine testing and sampling of water in the distribution system for the past week, the NMBM has learnt that certain microbiological limits were exceeded.

It is through this process that the Municipality has come to detect failures in water compliance with SANS standards.

These results came against earlier results that certified our water as safe to drink.

This then means that, for now, the water coming out of our distribution system could present a risk to human health if ingested.

The Municipality urges all consumers to boil their water before drinking or cooking, until further notice.

The Municipality wishes to assure its residents that it is treating this matter with the utmost urgency and seriousness.

An urgent meeting has been called between the Water Services and Environmental Health departments to develop a turnaround plan.

An update will be issued tomorrow morning, February 23, 2022, outlining plans that have been put in place to make sure that the water coming out of the NMBM distribution system is safe to drink.

The Municipality would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused.
