    Are you thinking of emigrating?

    This sounds like you're confusing "passport" (the little booklet that allows you to cross borders) and "citizenship" (nationalitly). In most countries, only citizens (those who already hold citizenship) are eligible to obtain a passport of the country. Therefore, the steps are: first...

    SA mom a suspect in killing of 3 children in New Zealand

    I'd be asking, amongst other questions, how long the interval was between the man's leaving work, and when his neighbour heard him crying and came over to see what was wrong. Or has the children's mother actually admitted to doing the deed, so that their father is not under investigation?

    SA mom a suspect in killing of 3 children in New Zealand

    Maria Mandy Sibanyoni must be devastated. She'd have cared for the twins since birth, and had already had to bid them all good-bye when they left to NZ. I feel for her, after a farewell, and now this.

    SA mom a suspect in killing of 3 children in New Zealand

    My guess is that that dad very likely needs - more than anything - some sleep. Probably not easy to get, right now. And, yes, compassion. As to how the law works: in New Zealand the death penalty for murder was abolished in 1961...

    NICD data shows HIV to be the most common underlying cause of death in South African adolescents

    That seems to be a rather misleading thread title. Or in any case it seems to imply something rather different from what the opening post sets out, namely not the deaths of adolescents, overally, but of those adolescents who contracted Covid-19. Does anyone have a link for the ranking of...

    Makro is trying to rip off our people

    That's an interesting list. As others have pointed out, the prices in the US are quoted before VAT, which makes quite a difference. It's a pity this list doesn't reflect whether the other country's prices are quoted including or excluding any add-on sales taxes.

    New law to embed expropriation without compensation into Constitution is to be sent to the National Assembly for consideration

    If the EWC legislation comes into effect exactly as you describe it, and if the banks themselves cannot come up with a new system that conforms with the law but does not leave its clients at high risk, then the law will dramatically affect those people whose properties are now mortgaged, if, as...

    New law to embed expropriation without compensation into Constitution is to be sent to the National Assembly for consideration

    Thank you for the link to that article (dated 9th February 2021). As I understand it, the paragraph you quote is one of a list of items called: "BASA’s concerns include:", in other words, these are the aspects of EWC which make the Banking Association of South Africa nervous, and which they...

    Another thread from the swamp...

    Why? A paternity test was done. Result negative. That's the paper the child needs to be given a copy of, within the context of a kind but reality-based conversation.

    New law to embed expropriation without compensation into Constitution is to be sent to the National Assembly for consideration

    Do you have links, please, for any bank's position on this, in the way you set it out? Were the bond contract to state that the signee (the buyer of the property) will be liable to pay on until the end of the contract, even if their property is expropriated without compensation... do you think...

    Book library in Garage ?

    Moisture, but not only. Also compare, relative to the house: temperature both hot and cold), sunlight as a detriorating factor, artificial light for access when one actually wants to read a book, dust and other kinds of dirt (if the garage is also a workshop), insects, ghekos, rodents.

    BREAKING | Jacob Zuma hospitalised for 'medical observation'

    "Apart from being terminally ill and physically incapacitated, inmates from an illness that severely limits their daily activity or self-care can also be considered for medical parole." One of the persons interviewed said that such limitations can be seen if the prisoner cannot participate in...
