A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.

During the period 30 September to 9 October 2014, Transnet Freight Rail will conduct its annual major maintenance programme along the Port Elizabeth – Postmasburg Manganese Ore Railway Line. As a result of this intensive maintenance programme, there will be increased traffic and activities on the public roads near the railway lines. You are kindly requested to be extra vigilant whilst travelling on these roads during this period.
During the period of 30 September to 9 October 2014 the level crossings in the Drennan, Nelland, Witmos, Klipfontein, Thornegrove areas, as well as the Slagtersnek level crossing, will be closed for periods of up to three hours, while the railway maintenance machines are running through the level crossings. Temporary crossings will be constructed from wooden sleepers, to allow light delivery vehicles (LDV’s) to cross the railway lines at some crossings during this time. Unfortunately motor cars will not be able to cross.

Chris Hani Distriksmunisipaliteit hef

haalbare sanitasietariewe, ná druk

deur AfriForum

Die Chris Hani Distriksmunisipaliteit het, na volgehoue druk deur AfriForum, weggedoen met bloktariewe op sanitasie en ’n vaste tarief van R59 per maand per huishouding gehef. Dié onbekostigbare bloktariewe sou ingestel word in Queenstown, Middelburg, Cradock, Dordrecht, Tarkastad, Hofmeyer, Molteno, Cala, Sterkstroom en Elliot.
AfriForum het daarop aangedring dat die munisipaliteit verduidelik waarom die tariewe nie aan ‘n openbaredeel-nameproses onderwerp was nie, en net in die finale begroting opgeduik het. Dít, nadat watertariewe drasties verlaag is, na druk deur AfriForum. ’n Gemiddelde huishouding wat 30 kiloliter water per maand gebruik, sou ongeveer R500 per maand vir sanitasie moes opdok.
“Ons regspan was gereed om voort te gaan met ’n hooggeregs-hofaansoek nadat die burgemeester, Mxolisi Koyo gewaarsku is dat ons stappe sal neem as die tariewe toegepas word. Hierdie aan-kondiging is ‘n oorwinning, maar AfriForum vereis dat die oornameproses van alle waterverwante dienste vanaf plaaslike munisi-paliteite op die korrekte wyse oorgedoen word,” het Pieter Rautenbach, AfriForum se algemene adviseur vir gemeen-skapstrukture gesê.
“Ons kan nie toelaat dat infrastruktuur wat deur plaaslike belasting-betalers betaal is net arbitrêr oorgeneem word en die inkomste wat plaaslik verdien word, net weggeneem word nie. Dit word dan ook sonder behoorlike beplanning gedoen,” het Anton Brummer, voorsitter van die AfriForum Elliot-tak gesê.

Mr Joseph Williams of Status Toyota, Somerset East, handing over the key of the brand new vehicle for the traffic department, to Mr. Mbulelo Ncipe (Manager of protection services). The driver of this brand new car will be Mr. Mbulelo Ncipe, the Manager of Protection Services.
The idea of branding the new traffic vehicles is for the public to identify and to improve services. On the back of the vehicle is the slogan: Serving you.
The Manager of Environmental Services Mrs Nomsa Ngcipe and the Director of Community Services Mr. Sizwe Mvunelwa, were also present during the hand over of the keys. Inspections by the Department of Labour: false officials
It has come to the LWO’s attention that people who falsely pose as inspectors from the Department of Labour, show up at employers’ premises and then demand payment for these so-called inspections.
We would like to inform you briefly what to do during an inspection by the Department of Labour:
• Insist on positive identification of the person who introduces himself as an inspector.
• Firstly verify the information before giving the person access to your premises.
Please note the following:
• No inspector may charge a fee for the inspection / investigation / advice / assistance.
• The Department of Labour does not delegate any third party to conduct an inspection on behalf of the Department of Labour – none of the Department of Labour’s powers may therefore be delegated.
• No inspector may sell posters, products or information.
Please feel free to contact us at 0861 101 828 for advice in this regard, or if you require any assistance in this matter. We are available 24/7. 0861 101 828 | |
