Youth League  marches  to  private  hospital NKOSINATHI  DUBE >>nkosinathi.dube@me­ dia24.com The hospital management eventually came out to accept and sign the memorandum after it was read to them and they with some of the demands made by the youth league such as not outsourcing companies for cleaning and security as those jobs can be offered to the local youth. Sabelo reiterated the call for beneficiation of local people more especially the youth in every project

that takes place in KwaDukuza. “The mere fact that the hospital is private means that it is making a lot of money and it’s only fair that the youth gets a share in the pie of the economy of the land of KwaDukuza as the unemployment rate stands at a staggering 25%,” he added. Apart from minor vandalising incidents on the premises there was no further damage to property reported as the march ended peacefully with high police visibility.

DCLM deals  with  leachate  discharge JYOTHI  LALDAS >>jyothi.laldas@media24.com

A

FTER months of appealing for intervention the New Guelderland community will finally be able to rest knowing that Dolphin Coast Landfill Management (DCLM) will take steps to address alleged unauthorised discharge of leachate (the liquid that drains or ‘leaches’ from a landfill). The newly-appointed chief executive officer of DCLM James Ndebele, has approached the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) for guidance on the management and disclosure of alleged unauthorised discharge of leachate at the New Guelderland based landfill site, which came to light during the recent transition to new management. This was announced at a press briefing on Friday. According to Ndebele in early December 2017 he had received allegations that site employees had previously been instructed to discharge leachate from the landfill, particularly during times of high rainfall. However, according to DCLM’s waste management licence, leachate from the landfill may only be used on site if treated to the prescribed standard and only for dust suppression and irrigation within the permitted area. “As soon as we became aware of these allegations, we immediately

provided full disclosure to the licensing authority, the national Department of Environmental Affairs in Pretoria and have since provided our full co-operation in their investigations. “These allegations are of great concern to us as we pride ourselves as being a responsible company that not only takes legal compliance very seriously, but also strives towards continual improvement and best practice.” Ndebele explained that DCLM’s waste licence requires that they commission experts to monitor the surface water and groundwater quality twice a year. These results are then reported to the DEA and made public through the monitoring committee, which meets bi-annually and is made up of community representatives, national, provincial and local government officials as well as the Dolphin Coast Conservancy and Coastwatch. Annually, DCLM also makes use of an independent external auditor to ensure compliance with its waste management licence. DCLM also revealed that in a “completely separate incident” caused by heavy rain that fell on December 5 and 6, 2017, storm water breached the safety berm and flowed from the landfill perimetre into the surrounding environment. DCLM said they repaired the berm and reported the incident to the DEA in accordance with its permit conditions.

According to Ndebele, DCLM is in the process of complying with the steps prescribed by Section 30 of the National Environmental Management Act to assess the extent and impact of this breach and undertake remedial measures. Ndebele expressed DCLM’s commitment to transparency and communicating openly with its stakeholders. “The KwaDukuza Municipality was informed of these matters at a recent meeting called by DCLM and the DEA and will be kept up to date as they

progress. A special meeting was held with the landfill’s monitoring committee and a public community meeting was scheduled for Saturday, February 3.” He assured the public that DCLM is co-operating fully with the DEA and will act immediately to effect the remedial measures recommended by external environmental experts once approved by the department. These recommendations include, but are not limited to, the manual removal of contaminated soil and its dis-

posal in the active landfill cell specifically engineered to accept hazardous waste. Director of Waste Management Licensing for the DEA Bonginkosi Dlamini confirmed that his department was investigating the allegations of unauthorised discharge of landfill leachate into the environment and that DCLM had voluntarily approached the DEA with information from the outset. He asked that the public and the media be patient and allow the investigation to run its course.

HE KwaDukuza  Municipality,  in partnership  with  Hesto  Harnesses and the Department of Education, held the 2018 bursary conferral ceremony at the KwaDukuza Town Hall last week. The bursary programme is the initia­ tive of the KwaDukuza Municipality to as­ sist  pupils  who  have  performed  well  in their matric exams with registration bur­ saries  at  an  institution  of  their  choice.  The  programme  is  in  its  eighth  year and  assists  up  to  500  pupils  each  year. The iLembe District’s director of edu­ cation, Dr Musa Madondo, said that they are in full support of the programme by KDM and hope it will continue assisting underprivileged  pupils  from  the  district. “We  are  very  grateful  to  have  a  pro­ gramme of this nature from a progressive municipality  and  would  wish  to  thank KDM for its contribution to our children’s education.  As  the  district,  we  attribute the 2017 success to having supported our teachers and pupils and the hands­on ap­ proach  we  implemented.  We  have  the

strategy for 2018 in place as we aim for a  70%  pass,”  said  Madondo. This year there were 500 applications received but only 332 applicants will be recipients  in  the  KDM  bursary  pro­ gramme. An amount of R750 000 is set aside  this  year  as  compared  to  the R500 000  over  the  past  eight  years. Mayor Ricardo Mthembu congratulat­ ed the class of 2017 and stressed the im­ portance  of  education. “The  government  is  there  to  assist you, so students, as you are now students since we are handing you over to tertiary institutions, you must take these oppor­ tunities  with  both  hands. “We also commend the efforts of the teachers as well as school governing bod­ ies,”  said  Mthembu. The  event  also  highlighted  the achievement of the district of improving the  matric  pass  rate  to  an  impressive 64%,  jumping  from  last  in  the  province to 11th, making it the most improved dis­ trict.  KDM  has  also  said  that  there  are plans in place to have the contributions increased  to  fully  fledged  bursaries.

Beauty queen  flying  KZN  flag  high NKOSINATHI  DUBE

A

LOCAL  beauty  pageant  contestant and  Miss  Eagle  South  Africa  brand ambassador  is  flying  the  KwaZulu­ Natal  flag  high  and  looks  to  empower  other  young  women  in  the  process. Tasmeen  Rajoo  (22)  is  an  aspiring  model  and  actress  who  is  set  to  com­ pete  for  the  Miss  Eagle  pageant  finals,  which  are  to  take  place  late  this  year. 

The North  Coast  young  beauty  said  that  she  believes  that  the  pageant  will  be  a  platform  from  which  she  can  express  her  feelings  and  help  empower  other  young  women.  “I  was  taught  to  give  the  little  that  you  have,  to  be  selfless,  and  that  being  a  human  being  doesn’t  just  mean  bleeding  or  feeling  emotion.  “Humanity  is  the  definition  of  a  true  human  being,”  she  said.  Rajoo  also  said  that  she  draws  inspi­

ration from  the  struggles  and  tragedies  she  has  been  through,  having  been  brought  up  by  a  single  mother  and  living  in  an  environment  surrounded  by  drug  and  alcohol  abuse. “I  believe  we  all  have  a  role  to  play  in helping  our  community  and  the  under­ privileged,  and  help  build  a  better  socie­ ty,”  she  said.  People  can  vote  for  Tas­ meen  Rajoo  by  sending  an  SMS  with  her  name  to  35334.

Balvikas/EHV offered  to  community THE Sri Sathya Sai Organisations (India and International)  conducts  a  very  effective nine­year model of education (Balvikas or SSE/Education  in  Human  Values  ­  EHV) which was started by Swami in 1969, and is aimed at the age groups five to 15 years across  the  world. It is the brain child of Swami Sri Sathya Sai  Baba,  and  has  benefitted  millions  of children.  In this world of declining morals and hu­ man values, where science and technology have advanced to a point where man is ca­ pable  of  destroying  not  only  himself,  but the entire world, Education in Human Val­ ues  (EHV)  is  a  ray  of  hope  for  the  future. EHV develops good qualities, unlike today’s education which develops the intellect and skills  only.  The  Kwadukuza  Sai  Centre  will  com­ mence Balvikas And EHV at Sai Shruti (18 Berthwell Drive) on February 12 from 4 pm

OPINION

strength of the new relationship as to whether or not it is real and filled with compassion. Moving forward after abuse is a process where healing can take place. It may be few months or a few years so it is not to be rushed. Learning to love one’s self again is a vital step to moving forward. Be kind to yourself — this is not a selfish act, but an act of self-care. Time and intensive therapy can heal even the most wounded people. When the time is right, the right person will appear, even though it may not be a long-term committed partnership, it is a step in the right direction. Day by day the heart will open itself

up again to feeling emotions that were compartmentalised and locked away. Be open about the effects of what happened although this is not to define the person you are. Recently, I myself have been placed in one of the worst periods of posttraumatic stress. Having opened up slowly in a safe relationship, the effects of abuse began to surface — even 10 years later. Did this make a difference to the relationship, the answer is yes in a positive way. Talking has become more open and mutual respect strengthened. Embarrassment is not there, only support and kindness. Who knows

what will happen from here, other than a big hurdle has been overcome and the light at the end of the tunnel is nearing. The message is to never give up hope even in the darkest times. Each day is positive progress towards a renewed, confident self, knowing that things are going to be okay in the end.

we have already lost our great Hugh Masekela and Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer of the Cranberries who departed in the first month of the

year. O’Riordan was only 46 and nothing suspicious led to her death, according to the coroner, so all the other musi-

cians should be extremely cautious for the rest of the year, perhaps?

Finding love  after  abuse MANY people ask me if the idea of finding honest and trusting love after being in an abusive relationship is possible. The answer is simple, yes! However the process of getting to the point of openness and trust is a complex, necessary journey of time, patience, healing and self-love. Often one is left cynical about love — with elements of disdain towards the fairy tales we grew up with. Life can be consumed with obsessive thoughts and memories of the abuser and their actions, so that the possibility of opening up to true love is thwarted by the survivor. This is by no means intentional as the complexities around

experiencing abuse are so widespread that one often does not realise the abuse has overtaken the real person hidden under the trauma. The trauma covers many different elements of the self, from daily financial survival to lack of self-esteem and disassociation from the incidents that occurred. Often acknowledging that abuse indeed occurred can be difficult. Be aware that post-traumatic stress maybe evident although not known to the survivor. These symptoms may only occur years later even in a new relationship that is safe and it may be shocking and extreme when it does surface. This will be a test to the

THERAPY

ADVERTORIAL

Treating constant  neck,  head  and  shoulder  pain  with  acupuncture CONSTANT neck pain is a common problem and is quite difficult to deal with and can be very troublesome since it impacts negatively on all aspect of one’s life and health. SOME  CAUSES  OF  NECK  PAIN Damaged nerve (pinching of nerve), degenerative disc disease, injury, whiplash, constant exposer to cold wind, stress, holding the neck in the same position for a long time, improper or quick movement. SYMPTOMS  OF  NECK  PAIN: Constant headache and neck pain - especially pain at the back of the head - stiffness, back pain along with neck pain, shoulder and arm pain, swallowing problems, dizziness, poor concentration, depression, feeling light headed, irritability, anxiety, eye pain and glandular swelling.

CUPPING AND MASSAGE THERAPY FOR POOR CIRCULATION & DETOX

TREATMENT FOR  NECK  PAIN: We, at Holistic Wellness Centre, use acupuncture, therapeutic massage, cupping, electro therapy and heat therapy to improve the flow of blood in and around the affected area. Thus, nerve function are restored and symptoms related to neck pain start subsiding. Patients respond fantastically and almost immediate relief is felt, since we are treating the root cause of the problem and not just the symptom, thus enabling you to live a pain free life. For all of us, stiffness and pain are a way of life to which we have become habituated and it is not often until we receive acupuncture cupping and therapeutic massage that we realise our muscles are tight or how much of our energy is consumed by stress. If you or someone you know is suffering from neck pain, consult with these qualified and registered acupuncturists so that you get the relief you deserve. We can help you lead a pain-free life naturally without any side effects. To make appointment, call Doctor Of Chinese Medicine, Dr. Meena Kasim MD(Acu) on 032 944 2761 or 082 786 4127.

FOCUS ON FINANCE Learn more  about  taxation T

AX is  collected  by  government  from persons for the benefit of the citizens of a country. In our country the South Africa Revenue service (SARS) collects tax­ es  on  behalf  of  the  government. SARS  collects  both  direct  and  indirect taxes. Money received by the fiscus, mainly in the form of taxes is spent on social servi­ ces and infrastructure development to ben­ efit  all  South  African,  rich  and  poor.  The money is spent on education, health, wel­ fare,  housing,  building  of  roads,  hospitals and  so  on. WHO  IS  LIABLE  FOR  TAX? Persons  liable  for  tax  include  natural persons such as individuals and legal per­ sons such as companies and close corpora­ tions.  A  person  also  includes  trusts,  de­ ceased  estates  and  insolvent  estates.  A partnership is a group of persons acting to­ gether by way of a partnership agreement. For income tax purposes, a partnership is not a taxpayer but the partners are how­ ever  taxed  in  their  capacity  as  individual taxpayers. FORMS  OF  TAXATION The  various  forms  of  taxes  include  in­ come  tax;  value  added  tax  (VAT),  capital gains tax, donations tax, dividend tax, es­ tate duty, transfer duty, customs duty and securities transfer tax and so on. In South Africa individual taxpayers are taxed differ­ ently  from  corporate  taxpayers.  Taxation for  individuals  who  are  employed  and  re­ ceive a monthly salary is different to that

of individuals who conduct a trade or busi­ ness  whether  in  their  personal  name  or through a corporate entity such as a compa­ ny  or  close  corporation. TAXATION  OF  INDIVIDUALS  INCOME AS  A  SALARY Individuals  who  are  employed  (not  in business)  who  receive  a  salary  together with certain fringe benefits is taxed on the salary and the value of such fringe benefits which  represents  the  private  use  of  the company car. The deduction permissible for such individual taxpayers is limited. The in­ dividual taxpayer may claim a deduction of payments made to a retirement payment such as a pension fund. The individual is al­ so entitled to certain other deductions such as  payments  for  medical  and  related  ex­ penses based on a certain formula. Tax is calculated on taxable income determined for individual taxpayer, after deducting nor­ mal  tax  rebates.  In  the  case  of  individual taxpayers tax is levied at a tiered rate. The tiered rate of tax means the higher the level of income the higher the rate of tax applica­ ble to such income on a tiered scale. In the tax year which ended 28 February 2017 if the individual taxpayer who is under the age of 65 and whose annual taxable income is less than  R75  000  will  pay  no  tax  on  such  in­ come.  As  the  income  increases  above  the tax threshold of R63 556 the rate of tax pay­ able increases from a rate of 18% onwards. TAXATION  OF  INCOME  FROM  TRADE OR  BUSINESS

Why your  credit  score  is  important THE three digits that are your credit score are among the  most  important  pieces  of  financial  information about you, yet the majority of South Africans don’t know their credit score, nor do they understand how to  manage  or  improve  it.  Banks,  finance  companies,  retailers,  even  land­ lords use your credit score to determine how financial­ ly dependable you are. A poor credit score could result in you not getting a loan, paying higher interest rates or not being considered for the house or apartment you had your heart set on. Despite being entitled, by law, to a free credit report annually from one of the credit bureaus, most South Africans seem unaware of how  important  this  score  is.  Checking your credit score can also reveal if anyone has been fraudulently using your profile to open ac­ counts  or  borrow  money. Most importantly, knowing how credit bureaus de­ termine your credit score means you can do something about improving a poor score or maintaining a good one. Marlies Kappers head of marketing at DirectAxis Financial services says that your credit score is calcu­ lated according to the information found in your credit report.  “This  includes  your  payment  history,  the amounts you owe, activity on an account, how long you have held your accounts – the longer the better – judgements, defaults and enquiries about your cred­ it worthiness.” DirectAxis’ head of credit has the fol­ lowing  tips  for  managing  your  credit  score: Check  your  credit  report:  Credit  bureaus  do make mistakes. Make sure that all the transactional information in your credit report is yours and is accu­ rate.  Alert the credit bureau if you find any discrepan­ cies. Pay on time: Your payment record has a big influ­ ence on your credit score. Even paying a few days late can negatively influence your rating. If you have to pay regular instalments, consider setting up a debit order, so you don’t forget and accidentally miss a payment. Alternatively put a reminder in your diary or calendar. Reduce what you owe: Use the credit report to list all your debts. Arrange these according to the inter­ est rates charged on each. Try to pay off the ones with the highest interest rates first, while maintaining the minimum  payments  on  your  other  accounts. Pay  off  debt  rather  than  move  it  around: Limit revolving debt such as credit cards. Don’t apply for additional credit or accounts or increase your avail­ able  credit  as  this  could  lower  your  credit  score.

If a person is conducting a trade or is in a  business  then  expenditure  incurred  by such a person may be claimed as a deduc­ tion against income received by such a per­ son. Expenditure may be categorized as rev­ enue expenditure and capital expenditure for tax purposes. Revenue, expenditure in­ cludes spending on the following: advertis­ ing, bank charges, cleaning, entertainment, salaries and wages, purchases of stock, mo­ tor vehicles expenses and so on. Capital ex­ penditure  includes  spending  on  land  and buildings, plant and machinery, motor vehi­ cles  and  so  on. In the normal course of trade a taxpayer may  claim  all  the  revenue  expenditure  in the  year  in  which  such  expenditure  is  in­ curred. Capital expenditure may be over a number of years for example wear and tear on plant and machinery may be claimed in instalments  over  four  years  or  five  years. Both  revenue  and  capital  expenditure  is claimed  as  a  deduction  against  income. FORMS  OF  BUSINESS  ENTERPRISES A  person  may  conduct  a  business  or trade on the following basis: as a sole pro­ prietor or sole practitioner in the case of a professional,  a  partnership,  a  company,  a close  corporation  or  even  as  a  trust. SOLE  PROPRIETOR In  the  case  of  a  sole  proprietor  or  sole practitioner the net profit, after deducting legitimate business expenses and allowan­ ces,  is  taxed  at  progressive  rates  of  tax. COMPANY  OR  CLOSE  CORPORATION

Tell creditors if you have a problem: Keeping your creditors informed if you’re having  difficulties  won’t  improve  your credit score, but if you can negotiate a payment schedule your score should im­ prove  over  time. Outstanding  debt  will  stay  on your  record:  If an account is overdue it will negatively affect your score. Mak­ ing some payments or paying it off com­

A company or close corporation is taxed at a flat rate of 28% of taxable income after taking into account all the income received by such company and deducting business expenses and allowances for tax purposes. MICRO  AND  SMALL  BUSINESS  COR­ PORATION Micro business generally experience dif­ ficulties  in  maintaining  financial  and  ac­ counting records and the costs associated with keeping such records. The government introduced a turnover tax to stimulate the growth  of  micro  business  by  reducing  ad­ ministration  costs  and  responsibilities placed on tax compliance. In order for a mi­ cro business to qualify for turnover tax, its turnover  (sales)  must  not  exceed  R1m  in any  one  tax  year.  You  may  conduct  the  business  in  your own name as a sole proprietor, a company or a close corporation. Turnover tax is based on cash receipts from business rather than the  profit.  You need to keep little or no records and you don’t have to account to SARS for value added tax (VAT), capital gains tax, dividend tax  and  normal  tax.  A  small  business  corporation  includes companies  and  close  corporations  whose turnover  does  not  exceed  R20  million  for the tax year ended 28 February 2017. Prefer­ ential  rates  of  tax  are  applicable  to  such small  business  corporations. 

pletely won’t  clear  your  credit  record, but  will  improve  it.   Be  aware  that  information  about your payment profile can stay on your record  for  up  to  five  years.   Closing  an  account  doesn’t  make the payment history go away and this will still be reflected in your credit score.                                                                                              ­  Supplied

TAX AVOIDANCE  AND  TAX  EVASION Tax avoidance is an attempt to minimize tax liability using legal means i.e to regulate ones  affairs  to  pay  the  minimum  amount of tax rather than the maximum. Tax eva­ sion is the use of illegal means to reduce tax liability  for  example  falsifying  of  books, suppression  of  income  over  statement  of deductions  and  so  on. TAX  PLANNING Taxpayers are entitled to arrange their business affairs to pay the least amount of tax. No person wants to pay more tax than required. The government promulgates the law relating to taxation. As such, taxpayers are able to plan their tax affairs, within the law, to be most tax efficient. Tax planning is highly subjective and varies from person to  person  and  company  to  company.   The  government  or  the  South  African Revenue Services (SARS) are not mandat­ ed to ensure optimal tax efficiency and sav­ ing  –  you  must  do  that! The Tax Company is a well established accounting and tax practice in the central business  district  of  Stanger.  We specialise in accounting for sole pro­ prietors, companies, close corporations and trust, as well as the related tax planning for these  various  business  entities  to  you  in structuring your business in the most tax ef­ ficient  manner.                                                                ­  The  Tax  Company

One of the onlookers was a gentlemen who was driving a similar model in Silver. He  commented  that  the  darker  colour works  best  for  the  design. The LED daytime lights work like jewelry to  accent  the  design,  while  the  single­ frame  grille  and  S­Line  lower  air  intakes give  an  imposing  appearance  in  anyone’s mirror. The Q5 rides on 18­inch wheels as standard. The  rear  gets  LED  dynamic  indicator lights  that  drew  much  admirers.  Overall, the  Navy  Metallic  Q5  was  an  attention grabber wherever we went, even outstag­ ing much more expensive SUVs at events over  the  festive  season. INTERIOR Inside, the architecture is well laid out and easy  to  set  up.

The one negative feature I found was the lack of stowage space for phones and keys around  the  front. The  cup  holders  are  also  not  ideally placed when using the armrest. But the vir­ tual  cockpit  worked  like  magic,  allowing ease  of  navigation  instructions  without taking  eyes  off  the  road.Google  Maps stunned  many  passengers  with  real­life satellite  view  images  of  places. The panoramic glass roof created an airy feel  inside  and  at  night  created  a  “night amongst the stars” atmosphere inside. LED interior lighting also comes standard with different hues of colour accessible through the  MMI  system. The seats are leather, with manual ad­ justable  front  seats. Loading the rear middle seats worked a boon with festive season shopping, while the  generous  boot  space  carried  holiday luggage with ease (we never got to use the folding  rear  seats  but  we  realised  when needed,  huge  space  would  be  attained). The rear seats were a bit upright over long distances  and  we  felt  a  reclining  adjust­ ment  would  have  been  a  bonus. UNDER  THE  HOOD The  TFSI  on  test  features  the 185 kW/350 Nm  2­litre,  4­cylinder  turbo engine linked to a dual clutch seven­speed automatic  transmission. Drive  is  through  Audis  Quattro  all­wheel­

drive system that on normal roads uses on­ ly the front wheels to engage power but in milliseconds can transfer power to any of the wheels with most traction. This saves fuel as less power drives the wheels in nor­ mal  conditions.  Our test unit came with Adaptive Air sus­ pension, an option that is well worth the investment. This system allows the driver to configure the drivetrain for varying ride quality (Comfort, Efficiency, All Road, Dy­ namic,  Auto,  Individual). PLAYING  DIRTY For off­road conditions, the system raises the  ride  height  while  dynamic  lowers  the ride  for  agility. Put the system in Comfort and it has one of the best rides I have experienced, making long­distance travel even on bad roads, a breeze. Allied to the excellent sound insula­ tion in the cabin, this makes the Q5 an ef­ fortless  cruiser. Put  the  system  in  Dynamic  and  the throttle response is improved but still lags, which makes Economy quite frustrating as the  throttle  response  is  even  lazier. The major plus of the Adaptive Air Sus­ pension  is  the  ability  to  select  the  Sport trim (Sport Suspension) which means you get the sporty appearance but unlike some rivals who then deliver a hard ride, the air suspension  still  allows  a  plush  ride — the best  of  both  worlds.

RUNNING COSTS During our test we averaged 9,5l/100 km, higher  than  the  claimed  6,8 l/100 km. At the standard price of R797 500, the Q5 TFSI Sport Auto is good value for an excel­ lent  package. The downside is that to have all the fea­
