I was lucky enough to come home to Johannesburg for the Easter weekend. It has been a very busy, very short break. But a much deserved one nevertheless! Whilst spending some time with my extended family, my youngest cousin, Sabrina, was talking about all the plans she has for her school holidays. And my younger brother, Bradley, became very upset when he realised that Sabrina was going to be on holiday until next week Tuesday, 3 May 2011. The reason this upset my brother, is because Sabrina goes to a government school (unlike my brother who is a private, Catholic school), which means she has already had her first term break. Being allowed to miss seven days of school, in the middle of term time, is usually a very difficult thing to get away with.

The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development has amended the Magistrate's Courts Act of 1944 giving powers to Regional Courts to now deal with divorce cases as well. President Jacob Zuma announced the commencement of the Jurisdiction of Regional Courts Amendment Act which came into effect on 9th August 2010, the National Woman's Day. The Regional Courts were established in 1952 to deal with divorces, serious criminal offences and mete out harsher penalties. The amendments increase access to justice to members of the public, in particular, women and children who go to courts daily for the resolution of family related disputes relating to divorce; maintenance; adoption; and matters relating to custody of minor children.

Mr X does it again

So after a long chat with Mr X, the gent who was one of our representatives in Haiti, I found out that there is a possibility that he will be going to represent South Africa in Chile. The earth quake that hit Concepcion, Chile on the 27th of February 2010 was one of the strongest ones ever to occur, it measure 8.8 on the Richter scale. It caused the axis of the Earth to shift by three inches and it shortened the rotation of the earth for 1.26 microseconds. The aftershock that occurred yesterday has chased people out of the city and into the hills. Mr X is one of those people who quietly lives his life. He started his working career as a specialist soldier who trained down at the Bluff in Durban back in the Eighties. After being selected to join the Parabats he was selected to join up with the Recces. He spent a bit of time with 32 Battalion before resigning from there and joining up with the riot police in Cape Town. After that he was asked to join up with Executive outcomes and spent some time up in Angola. He is currently one of the highest qualifies firemen in South Africa and works for the Johannesburg Fire department. Now here is the sad thing. Due to his qualification and his experience, he is one of the people who will be able to go into an area that has been hit by an earthquake and deal with the situation. People like that just don’t exist anymore. He is the last of a dying breed. For him to go into yet another disaster situation and have to deal with dead and decaying bodies is just another day at the office. And he is going to go and do it again. He is going to meet up with the same people that he met when he was in Haiti. He is going to do the job he was trained for and he will survive. But financially he will not get any more compensation than he would get if he were spending a day here in South Africa. None of his colleagues from the Johannesburg Emergency Services that joined him in Haiti were financially compensated for their efforts. Yet EMS technician from other municipalities were compensated quite handsomely for their efforts. Whilst I am proud of my country, I am appalled to hear stories like this. This is not the first time that I have heard such stories and I am sure that it won't be the last. Come on Jozi, you can do a lot better.

Joburg license booking system... please explain

Posted by tallulah in johannesburg , joburg , gauteng , driving , drivers

Someone please explain the Joburg license booking system to me? In Grahamstown you do this: you get your stuff together, you go stand in a queue, fill in forms, and then they give you a date in a few months time and you pay lots of money and then you go on  your merry way.
