Siyabuya urges taxi peace to enable vaccinations
Cape Town taxi wars are preventing vaccinations against the Covid-19 virus just as infections are rising in the Western Cape. “We need peace because we need people to get their jabs,” said Siyabuya! leader Melene Rossouw. “The fact that talks, including with government, have failed once again to produce agreement is devastating. It’s going to affect thousands of people in Cape Town who still cannot get to vaccination sites. This is tragic, particularly for older people who are most vulnerable to the virus. “I know of people who cannot move from their homes because all forms of transport have come…
Why did the South African government sidestep a high court order to produce proof of the SARS-CoV-2 virus? What comes next?
On 27th May 2021, Ricardo Maarman approached the high court of South Africa in a landmark case requesting the government to produce proof of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in its isolated and purified form. Maarman holds a master's degree in international politics and refers to himself as an ordinary and concerned South African citizen. Motivated by the devastating effects of the lockdowns on the population, Maarman states, "the cost to our fragile economy is racking up: the removal of civil liberties, business closure, loss of lives, job losses and widespread unemployment..." as some of the reasons he decided to take action against Cyril…
HARD LOCKDOWN - NGOs could buckle under pressure
The pressure on NGOs since the first lockdown over a year ago has not subsided by any means and the news of the continued hard lockdown could cripple the sector entirely. Especially in light of a survey by Tshikululu Social Investments in 2020, reporting income losses for two-thirds of NPOs since the beginning of lockdown and indicating that the sector could take years to recover, with some organisations not recovering at all. However, there has been little movement at a policy level to ease the burden on NGOs of delivering vital social services. While the President called on citizens to…
Efficient Home Affairs permit services required for economic recovery after Covid Press Release to all media: No Embargo
The poor implementation of visa and permit processes in South Africa costs the country between R10-15 billion rand per year. This is the view of Leon Isaacson, CEO of Global Migration Group, an Immigration agency providing visa application services to individuals and corporates from all of over the world. Isaacson says that the Covid epidemic has highlighted the problems with policy and implementation and delayed the issuing of temporary residence visas inside South Africa for up to six months. " Clearly Covid has taken its toll on staffing numbers and staff health, so Home Affairs has been extending visas for 3-6…
Priority vaccination plea to save lives
Risk of death rather than mortality rates should be the criteria that secures priority vaccination argues the QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA). The organisation has made a plea to the Department of Health to include quadriplegics and paraplegics in the second round of the vaccine roll out. The organisations hopes this will prevent deaths among its members and ensure no one is left behind. “Many quadriplegics and paraplegics are at a higher risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus,” explains Raven Benny, QASA COO. “By pushing their wheelchairs, catheterising or accepting assistance from their carer, they are placed in high-risk…

FICA and KYC Compliance for Property Professionals
The legislative obligations placed upon Accountable Institutions – including estate agents, legal practitioners and conveyancers – under the Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA) can be complex to navigate. And, with the accepted forms of identification and verification continuously changing, it is even more important to keep on top of increasingly stringent anti-money laundering (AML) controls and reporting mechanisms to the Finance Intelligence Centre. Accountable institutions must also satisfy a heightened need for reliable Know-Your-Customer (KYC) verification solutions during the process of gathering information about a customer prior to establishing a business relationship or concluding a transaction. This helps to verify…
