  6. Anything involving a visit to a state department such as home affairs,traffic,visa requirement induces a feeling of dread. You have no idea what a feeling of freedom I experienced when I finally cancelled my Telekom account.

  8. Wage bill: when are these people going to get salaries slashed due to covid – private sector staff are now either jobless or on far smaller salaries than pre-covid.
    Clearly the ANC misspent tax for decades to buy votes!

  10. The answer is already here – labels that tell you exactly what you are stuffing your face with. Perhaps perform more checks on the accuracy of the information and fine transgressors heavily. That, and proper education, should be the end of it.

    Governments should have no right to tell people what to eat, drink, smoke, etc. They are already trying to tell you what to think. Do you really want to see NDZ at your breakfast table every morning, telling you and your family how much sugar to put in your coffee? I think not.

  16. The utter indifference of the tax paying population to this wholesale theft is the real problem. Taxpayer and voter apathy tolerates this conduct and condones it by doing nothing.

    The real problem in this country- which is a functioning democracy( flaws or not) is the voter who willingly re-elects leadership that is unwilling or unable to control theft -or worse commits it.

    Every person who has a bad education, poor housing, useless medical, lives with sky high crime, is unemployed, hungry and hopeless but votes for the ANC has only themselves to blame-nobody else!

  22. To the extent that the food companies should reasonably know what harm they cause, they are liable. Ask the Sackler family of Purdue Pharma. The company will be wiped out, the family repay over $10b and then there are the criminal charges.

    On the other hand, consumers also deserve blame and should get off their fat lazy and ample backsides. Responsibility, actions, consequence and all that

  24. What do you think about the irregular expenditure of RPLENTY billions eg.

    – I see Gordham asked why auditors have not red flagged these expenditure.
    Is this a fair call/request?
    – Should the bosses (at the time) of the irregular expenses be asked to give an account? Should they face criminal charges?
    – any value that you can add, except to complain about R5. It’s easier to recover R5 than R plenty billions!

  4. It was in Zimbabwe in 2000 that Robert Mugabe assured commercial farmers about land expropriation: “Don’t listen to what I say, watch what I do”.

    We all know how that ended. The assurances of politicians are worth nothing. You can trust a politician as far as you can throw him/her.

  6. The minister’s assurances count for naught if the proposed law says they can take someone’s property that they paid for regardless of the assurance. The only assurance that counts is the one that’s written in law.

  8. Would you take advice from a standard 4 pupil on restructuring your automated car manufacturing production line ?

    Corona virus was an opportunity for some very small people to exercise great powers way beyond their scope of rationality and or intelligence to the detriment of the very citizens these self serving idiots swore to protect. By June we had enough data to make rational decisions.

    The lockdown process however did have at least one success. It proved what many people believed but may have struggled to substantiate. There are people in power devoid of logical thought, rationality and ability to make lucid decisions. We are about to experience ’cause and effect’ and I am afraid they are just not ready for it.

  10. the cost of signal distribution is a shocking R335.68/viewer for analogue – that’s more than the SABC’s annual licence fee…..WHAT is the problem? you are going to make it up by charging us for NETFLIX…..you can get nothing right. Everything you and your ANC government touch turns into a UTTER failure!!

  14. How about a law that will take away a minibus from a taxi-boss that owns more than one taxi? It must be given to a previously disadvantaged individual who never had the privilege of owning a taxi business before. Woman, youth and people with disabilities should be first in line. It must all be done within a perfectly legal framework (obviously once changing the current laws) and everyone will be so happy. It is surely easier to take away a taxi from someone than a farm?

  16. The most precious possession all of us can have, except for family, is your health. I frankly see no reason to stop working if you’re healthy. Start a business, do consulting work, whatever. The reason I’m saying this is that pension returns are so poor and administered prices are rising so quickly, that even a guy who’s contributed to his pension fund all his working life simply cannot afford to stop working at 60.

  18. One of the most important lessons to be learned from the lock-down, aside from the power hungry nature of the regime – is how wildly, utterly, completely, totally wrong so-called scientific models (aka guesses) can be.

    Keep this in mind, next time some politician tries to extort more taxes from you because of some equally wrong climate guesswork.

  22. Investors are wise to question land grabs; when Ramaphosa took over from Zuma and was asked on one of his investor-road shows overseas, he said emphatically: “There are NO farm killings and NO land grabs!”
    International investors should visit SA -not as guest of government, but as guest of the farmer unions. White and black unions and farm commodity organisations before investing – otherwise they should read the local press daily!

  24. Great idea, Japie. In fact, it is now time to declare that PAIs (Presently Advantaged Individuals) – i.e. ministers in the ANC and EFF and all Public Servants – must forfeit half of their monthly salaries and give them to women, the poor, youth and people with disabilities. Seems perfectly reasonable to me for current wealth to be redistributed in this way by the PAIs.

  28. I suggest, once you have exhausted all avenues in notifying them of the cancellation/closure of the account, you simply apply a stop payment on the monthly debit order. That should get them to quickly start calling you.

  30. Seems like same old same old silver bullet.

    How to get the pensions of the poor and middle class to perform miracles and fix everything while the people that got us in this economic mess roam around freely and live in mansions.

    Some even have mansions in Dubai too. Smart financial planning on their side too, their money is spread amongst friends and family bank accounts.

    The SARS super computer did not pickup those transactions. Maybe it was sleeping.
