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.

KDM launches Dress a Child Campaign
KDM officials with pupils from New Gueldreland Primary School. THE KwaDukuza Municipality launched its annual Dress a Child Campaign initiative, which provides school uniforms to children from lessfortunate homes, on January 29. The campaign started at New Guelderland Primary School in Ward 3 and is spearheaded by Mayor Ricardo Mthembu and the Office of the Speaker. The programme will continue to 16 other schools
around KwaDukuza. The purpose of the campaign is to provide children from underprivileged family with uniforms and it also gives beneficiaries the dignity they deserve and helps them to fit in among their peers without feeling inferior due to the insecurity of being judged. The visits will also include schools that performed well in last years’ matric exams.

DCLM deals with leachate discharge JYOTHI LALDAS >>email@example.com
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.
The DCLM KwaDukuza landfill site in New Guelderland. 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.

Parents together with municipal councillors at the ceremony.
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
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.

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

ACUPUNCTURE MASSAGE & CUPPING
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 Q5 competes on price too S
IBONELO MYENI finds a sexy soft roader in the Audi Q5 TFSI Sport in 2.0 Auto for the festive season period. We got to test the New Audi Q5 TFSI Sport in 2.0 Auto guise. Over three weeks, we got to experience this model in more detail than normal and it seems the public got to view it more inti mately, judging from the interest generat ed. The design of the new Q5 is a mixture of Q7 and the svelte lines of the A5, and in our test units SLine design (standard) and Navy Metallic, it garnered a lot of posi tive comments from onlookers. 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
tures that transform this model into a thing of brilliance (air suspension of note), you have to pay more, something the Q5 is not alone at doing as its main rivals also com mand a price premium on extras. The Audi Q5 comes standard with a five year/100 000 km Audi Freeway Plan.
