    Kid taken by woman

    This topic is very relevant to me and my wife, we stay in Sasolburg and we do frequent the store (ZIO Food) where this happened. We also have a grandson in that age range, so I am trying to follow this thread to learn from this and try and get some valuable insight that some have posted.

    Kid taken by woman

    Can a moderator not please step in and clean up this thread from the useless drivel that clutters relevant posts?

    Standard Bank’s new campaign celebrates triumphant South African businesses

    They first need to sort out their online banking system, yesterday it was off for the second time in about a week's time! And it usually happens month-end, when a business have to pay accounts and salaries. Businesses need a reliable online banking platform to be successful.

    Which supermarket chain do you support the most?

    The Checkers in our town is a terrible shopping experience, so my wife usually drive to the next close one about 12km away. Fairly recently revamped, a much better shopping experience. The PnP in town is one of our last options if we do not want to drive to checkers. Rude staff, disorganised...

    Two Limpopo cops jailed for taking R1 000 bribe from motorist

    While this is a good thing, I am always saddened that it's always the small fry that's gobbled up by the legal system, and those involved in corruption of millions and billions are still walking free and living the good life. It seems the moral of the story is that if you decide on a life of...

    How much money you need to retire in South Africa

    Our company's pension fund works kind of strange. When you decide to go on pension (Normal retirement age is 65, but you can go on early pension without any penalty clauses from the age of 55.), your starting pension is based on your balance in your account as on your last day of formal...

    Is it standard procedure that brake-pads are excluded from an extended service plan?

    True that all pads are not created equal, but at 35 000km it should still be OEM parts, which generally lasts quite long.

    Is it standard procedure that brake-pads are excluded from an extended service plan?

    It seems that some drivers are exceptionally hard on brakes, literally and figuratively. I always get in excess of 100 000km on a set, while some of my colleagues are averaging at less than 50 000km on a set. My previous car was a Hyundai Elantra 1.8 and at the last service (105 000km) before I...
