Communism… when the prices of everything rise every month, but govt pretends there is no inflation

Why would you be taxed twice? Once you are deemed to have withdrawn, you have withdrawn. You cannot withdraw the same amount twice. As far as the foreign jurisdiction is concerned, the deemed withdrawal becomes an asset that is held by the emigrant, so is not taxed when the money is accessed.

Another 2022 trend to take notice of when considering one’s investment portfolio is of course the inevitable consolidation, rationalisation and digitalisation of the asset manager industry (investment companies). Take-overs, buy-outs, trimming, cross collaboration, fee-cutting, re-engineering of product offerings and enhancement of digital processes are all underway to allow more efficient investment management.

What it means is that the ‘students’ have no idea of 70% of the subject. Inconsequential ones likes Maths and Science, never mind economics. The mind boggles! Only the ANC can be proud of that.


24 October 2021 @ 10:02 pm

Absolutely true. And the ANC will make sure that the best candidates for the job don’t get a look in.

Good chance that the next chief justice will be a highly compromised person

You unfortunately cannot expect anything better from CONnie Myburgh, Dominique Haese and their fawning coterie of alleged professionals.

Moneyweb has previously published the report of highly respected retired Judge Eberhard Bertelsmann. The “Connie Myburgh” part of the report is worth a read:

Hi Joely, great question.

So the seed phrase represents the “private key” which is what really secures your bitocin.
The hardware wallet holds the private key on a physical device so they the computer can’t see the private key.

The seed phrase allows you to restore the private key onto a new hardware wallet or into a software wallet to recover your Bitocin if you lose the original hardware wallet


24 October 2021 @ 6:26 pm

We had to make a turn having a dig at the apartheid regime ne !!
Now I will tell you that it produced better outcomes than these ANC cadres ever will !!!!
Put that in your pipe and smoke it to with your legislated green stuff !!!!!!

Johan: I’ve seen you using the same argument on this issue before and I’m afraid you haven’t got your facts straight. Whilst it’s true that SA loses its ability to tax future income from a tax privileged pension fund when a person changes tax residence, that income becomes taxable in the new country of residence. Sure, there are a few low tax locations where the pensioner will pay less tax than in SA, but if he’s going to USA, UK, Oz etc he will be taxed on it. You of course will feel that’s UNFAIR because it’s the SA fiscus that allowed the tax deductions originally, but it cuts both ways – someone immigrating to SA with foreign pension income will be taxed on that income in SA despite his/her pension contributions being originally tax deductible in another country.

It’s a principle of reciprocity that countries agreed to when they signed up for double taxation agreements. This latest measure is designed to circumvent South Africa’s obligations under DTAs and will in many cases lead to double tax for an emigrating pensioner. Please explain how that’s FAIR?

PS Do you work for SARS?

You can’t call out African’s using coal then be one of the largest producers of oil and gas and try hide that.

Norway is complicit in climate catastrophe, competently.

Clicks probably gained wallet share from consumers that now refuse to support Dischem:
– price gouging during covid.
– pay directors rent for warehouses owned by directors while refusing to pay shop landlords.

Stating that you’re interested in social issues and actually putting your money where your mouth is, are 2 entirely different actions.

The article clearly states that it is “based on the answers and opinions of more than 23,000 respondents globally” and no mention is made of whether any comparison of the composition of portfolios prior to and subsequent to the Covid-19 pandemic were actually made to substantiate whether “feelings or intentions” actually became actions where it relates to sustainability investing.


24 October 2021 @ 11:26 am

Ehh because they still have a population and goverment with that irritating and racist thing called
that keeps Norway from progressing to “green fever enlightenment”

Dont worry competence is trumped by PC so well on its way out everywhere

South African land was stoled from the Khoi people beginning and it has since always been in the hands of thieves, It has been changing hands from one big thief to another, Shaka used to loot, Jan Van Riebeck looted, British came in and looted, Apartheid gang had thier turn, now the ANC thugs are currently busy looting.I wonder who I next..

No wonder this Country is producing thieves ,Bosasa thugs, Zuma,Steinhoff thugs, …..

“As long as you retain the seed phrase you can always recover your bitcoin balance, with or without the physical wallet.”
Can someone explain this to me? I am not very literate when it comes to these things


24 October 2021 @ 9:52 am

except that Eskom will convince the government to introduce new taxes and levies on people generating their own power to make up for the losses it continues to make. There is no win for consumers, only for government.

  2. Zimbabwean’s have been suffering under collective sanctions for years. These sanctions have destroyed the economy and created these economic refugees.

    The sanctions were aimed at the leadership, however it’s ordinary Zimbabwean’s who are suffering.

    Until the collective sanctions end, Zimbabwean should be allowed to live freely, without hindrance in South Africa.

  4. Besides corruption, the biggest problem we have in SA is an unsustably high number of illegal immigrants, including Zimbabwe.

    They know that it is more than 5million but it could stretch to about 10 million.

    This important of desperation and dependency is one of the key factors holding SA back.

  6. The idiotic ‘open-border policy’ that the EFF espouses, did you ever think of the consequences of such a move?
    How on earth would SA support all these people when already we are struggling to support even our own citizens?
    Why don’t you and the EFF’s top six lead by example and open your houses and accommodate all these people?

  8. Give it to them Ryk, obviously they don’t like you for reporting the truth

    Besides, you had a proxy to represent someone, which is only fair

    One wonders what they’re trying to hide

    I’m sure what they did is illegal, surely your friend should have a recourse to take them to task?

  14. Lifestyle audits sure. Just like the ones we do on prominent politicians.

    One rule for you, another one for them. Can SARS explain how JZ can afford millions of legal fees a year?

    Or maybe they’re just not interested

    ‘ Zimbabwean should be allowed to live freely, without hindrance in South Africa.”
    all whilst you pay for their education, medical services, social needs, security services and subsidised housing.
    Spot on for you.
    How many Zimbabweans do you have currently have staying in your house?

  22. So the government of Zimbabwe assumes no responsibility of their mess. It was the sanctions and nothing else. How delusional. Sanctions did not destroy Zimbabwe, Mugabe destroyed it.

  28. Back when the Rhodesian currency was at parity with the UK pound, and the country was known as the breadbasket of Africa, they still took up arms to “liberate” themselves from having enough to eat and a successful economy. Their failure today to take up arms, indicates that they are happy with being poor and starving. They deserve no sympathy whatsoever, because they are getting the government they deserve.

  30. I commend you Ryk for your unrelenting pursuit of the truth. These Nova, Sharemax lot are a real piece of work. I often pass the Villa in Pretoria East en route to work, its a horrible reminder of the absolute scam these jokers pulled. Its high time the NPA grabs them and locks them up good and proper

  34. The ANC will be a partner with the successful bidder and they will select a design that has never been tried before.

    It will cost 12x and become operational in the latter half of the century.

    Meantime we will import radioisotopes from Cuba at 10x the market rate.

    Sound familiar?

  36. I do not know what all the fuss is about, they got what they voted for.

    Venezuela and Cuba also got what they voted for, they voted with their hearts and not their minds and cannot eat anymore.

  38. Yeah, right! Like we all stand in the same queue at home affairs for an ID or passport around the block and round the clock hoping that you can see the one doctor whose pay is just the same standing up or lying down. Oh and pray Mr. Commy-Tzaar that his computer isn’t offline when you get to the front of the line to see him.

  40. The fundamental problem AARTO was meant to solve was the notification and summons process under the Criminal Procedure Act, which was routinely abused and flouted by local authorities who knew it was cheaper and easier for motorists to pay a fine than contest defective service in court. Those abuses persist to this day outside the AARTO pilot project areas.

    The simple solution was for all fines to be served either in person or by registered post, the same standard of service required for initiating documents in other judicial matters. It could have been fixed simply and cheaply two decades ago and a points-demerit system could easily have been bolted on.

    Instead, the DoT rejigged the concept to monetise traffic enforcement with no regard to actual road safety, and create parallel structures to the criminal justice system into which comrades could be parachuted with multi-million Rand salaries.

    The idea itself does not contain defects which could be cured by Parliament if OUTA wins; it is a massive slithering, mumbling defect in totality.

    We should return to the original plan. The problem is that the original plan involved reducing road deaths. The last half a decade of traffic law amendments and drafts provides no evidence that the DoT has the will, technical skill, or competence to do so.
