This is all South African taxis will have to look like in 6 months

In an unusual move the department of transport has issued a proclamation stating that all South African taxis must be colour-coded and look exactly the same within the next six months.
See corrected headline and summary below, bolded for your reading pleasure (you can also fix the article itself then while you're at it):

As to the above issue...

Come on guys, it's in your own article:

The proclamation, which can be found here, states that:

No person shall operate a minibus or midibus, the date of first registration of which is after a date calculated as six months after the date of publication of these regulations in the Gazette, on a public road for a minibus taxi-type service unless-

(a) the standard colour of the vehicle is white; and
(b) stickers depicting the South African national flag are displayed on the vehicle in accordance with sub-regulation.

In An 011 number may soon not come from Johannesburg, the following is incorrect:
- ABC is 362, which represnts Hatfield. (bullet list 1)
- ICASA found that, with the exception of Telkom, there is broad consensus on the inclusion of non-geographic numbers for portability.(paragraph 14)

They should read:
- ABC is 362, which represents Hatfield.
- ICASA found that there is a broad consensus among operators, excluding Telkom, regarding the inclusion of non-geographic numbers for portability.

It seems like the team at myBB need a list of telco operators by country. Your roaming bill shock article is poorly researched.

“The company contended that it was obliged to cancel all private use as a result of economic necessity. This boiled down to shareholders being unhappy with a profit of R6,469 million and would prefer R6,544 million.”
Those millions should be billions Dr Evil, this ain't the 60s anymore...
Still faulty I see. Either remove the comma or change to billions.
