Bowes McDougall Inc. 27A Prince Alfred Street, Queenstown | Tel:045 807 3800 IT WAS always going to be a tough budget given that former finance minister Malusi Gigaba already signalled during his mini-budget late last year that there was a significant fiscal deficit that needed to be funded. And, with a sluggish, albeit improving economy, this could only come from higher taxes. Seeff Property Group chairman Samuel Seeff said that while an improved economic outlook is welcome news, rising taxes for working households is simply unsustainable for an economy that needs to accelerate to address the challenges in the countr y. Some of the tax hikes that will affect consumers and property buyers include: ýVAT hike of 1%, from 14% to 15% which will affect everyone, save for the basket of exempt goods; ýMarginal increase in upper income tax, but more relief for lower tax bracket; ýFuel levy hike which will, of course, have a knock-on effect on transport and living costs. Seeff said that it is critical for taxpayers to know that their hard-earned tax money is spent where it is intended. The country can no longer afford the disaster that is the st at e - o wned enterprises because it has brought us to the brink of financial ruin. The bloated cabinet and state expenditure needs to be brought under control with some urgency. By taxing the very people who are growing the economy, you are making it very difficult for business owners and entrepreneurs to feel positive about investing further in the economy. Uncertainty about property ownership is also concerning. Although the succession of Cyril Ramaphosa as the ANC and the South African president has seen the mood in the country turn increasingly positive and his Sona address has sent the right messages, we need to see this translate into action, said Seeff. “We need a return to economic and political stability so investors can feel confident about investing and growing the economy. “The effect of weak confidence has been evident in the property market,” he added. Since last year there has been an accelerating decline in activity, especially at the upper end of the price scale, being above R8-million in Gauteng and above R18-million in the Cape. Those who do not need to sell or buy, are preferring to hold back. This means fewer transactions and a decline in transfer duty paid to government. Seeff said that while the year has started on a more positive note, people need to see that the government and economic mismanagement is being addressed and need reassurance that their investments and property will be safe. Remember, he added, the property sector is a vital contributor to the economy, jobs and prosperity, but it needs a good economy to thrive.

The police, supported by donors, donated full school uniforms, including shoes, to several pupils. St Theresa’s hosted the event. Mlungisi station commander Colonel Gcinikhaya Taleni said he had taken seven police trainees who were about to embark on their basic training, to witness the event. “We had many partners who donated [towards this cause] and some chose to not be mentioned. However, I must mention the new partners who are with us today. They are Workerslife investors and insurance company. We have gathered here today because the police have a responsibility to ensure safety and security for everyone within society.” Taleni said the police and the Community Policing Forum (CPF) worked as a partnership as the SAPS as an organisation could not work in isolation. Community assistance was needed for them to be able to function properly. “The police and the CPF started this project four years ago when the Mlungisi police station embarked on a campaign to get closer to the schools. We saw there was a need to assist parents who have to ensure that their children are properly ready for school, well fed and clothed.” Four pupils were identified by the teachers and SGB as beneficiaries. Taleni said local businesses had contributed money to help pay for the uniforms. Social Development Department social worker Luntukazi Kuse said there were different types of grants to assist children. Kuse said, “We have a list of the schools that the MEC has identified. The teachers identify the pupils who they see qualify for a grant and we do an assessment of the pupils’ circumstances and home visits are conducted.” WorkersLife representative Charlie Ndlaleni said the company, previously known as Lesakha, was pleased to be able to work with the community. Department of Education representative Nosipho Masimini said she felt embarrassed that there were no parents to witness what the SAPS had done. She said it was important to check a pupil’s circumstances and this issue had to be taken back to forums so that support programmes could be e st a b l i s h e d . Councillor Adele Hendricks, who is the portfolio head of public safety, spoke on behalf of Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality and said she was disappointed not to see any ward councillors present. “I will not do justice to the work that the mayor sent me to do if I do not touch on this matter. The local municipality also has a responsibility to safe guard our own communities and to bring safety to the children out there and if we are not going to form part of these projects then the beautiful projects of the premier Phumulo Masualle called the war rooms are not going to work.” SCHOOLS OUTREACH: Members of the police, WorkersLife, the Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality and the department of social development at the handover of shoes and uniforms to pupils from local schools Picture: SIMTEMBILE MGIDI SAVING LIVES: Hilary Friess was cheered on by the audience when he was called by donor committee member Patrick Makombe to collect his award for having donated blood 150 times, which was the biggest milestone honoured at the SANBS awards ceremony in Komani Blood donors thanked and recognised ANDISA BONANI FOR OTHERS: From left, South African National Blood Services clinic supervisor Busi Myataza handed over an award to Karen Chellew for having donated blood 50 times, with donor relations practitioner Maryke Harris looking on at the SANBS awards ceremony at the Queenstown Golf Club on Tuesday Pictures: ANDISA BONANI KOMANI blood donors Hilary Friess and John Bowes were among the top achievers at the South African National Blood Service (SANBS) award ceremony as they were honoured for donating 150 times. The SANBS had invited blood donors in Komani to the event at the Queenstown Golf Club on Wednesday to honour them for their commitment to saving lives. SANBS donor relations practitioner Maryke Harris said the event was aimed at thanking donors for their continued support to the cause. “The milestones start at 20 units donated per individual and these awards are an encouragement for people who have not reached the first milestone to continue donating as there is more demand for blood than supply. Statistics show that less than one percent of the population in the country donates blood and every 28 seconds on average someone needs a blood transfusion.” Friess said what motivated him to continue giving blood was the satisfaction of knowing that his blood would save someone’s life. “There was a ten year gap between my first and second blood donation. A friend reminded me of how important it was to donate and since then I have never looked back. I will keep donating for as long as I am still healthy and able and I want to ask everyone who has never donated before to come and help us save lives.” SANBS donor committee member in Komani, Patrick Makombe, said the committee’s duty was to teach people about the importance of blood donation and to recruit new donors including from schools and churches. Cathcart High, Hoërskool Hangklip, Luvuyo Lerumo High and Queen’s College were given certificates for their support of the blood drives.
