    New Citroen C3 Aircross launched in South Africa – And it’s R105,000 cheaper than before

    Effect of death on investments, incl. fixed investments

    An investment will pay out on the death of the investor. The value of the investment at the time of death will be paid out. Every investment should have a "value at death" or at least the investment firm should be able to provide it to you.

    South Africans becoming increasingly frustrated with deteriorating customer support

    100%, Saffers are extremely brand loyal for some reason. Just this week, friend of mine had new shocks put on his car, from the same place that last time completely screwed up the new tires he put on, yet he went back. This time they scratched his car as they were moving it around the workshop...

    Joburg not the first to implement fixed electricity fee

    Not sure I follow, the fixed connection charge did not exist, so yeah technically it increased by 100% from R0. Secondly, even if I take your numbers - which I assume is rounded, the total increase just being 1% more than the Eskom increase is certainly a hell of a lot better than the 25 to...

    Concerns around GridCars' ability to meet needs of increased EV adopters

    As you charge at home 99.9% of the time, this is a non issue. It is like that one time in 7 years you show up at a petrol station and all the tanks are empty.

    Joburg not the first to implement fixed electricity fee

    Sad for you, was the combined increase at least equal to the increase approved by NERSA?

    Joburg not the first to implement fixed electricity fee

    Agreed. I was already pretty much off the grid at that point, but my friends and neighbours mentioned that the amount of electricity they were buying + fixed charge combined increased by the NERSA approved %. I am happy with that approach. Down side for me as a land lord was that the fixed...

    Government promises ‘affordable’ nuclear for South Africa

    I don't think anyone wants affordable nuclear. That's like an affordable condom, gonna create years of problems.

    Tax season is officially open – how to file a tax return, and what’s changed for 2024

    Joburg not the first to implement fixed electricity fee

    Except in Cape Town the unit cost of electricity actually went down that year to compensate for the fact that the fixed component of the charge was removed. Doubt that happened in JHB.

    Rain and storm for Cpt

    Would think the whole pass is closed, can't think that the north side of the pass is any drier than the Southern part, in fact from experience I would say it is worse on the northern side.
