Strandfontein residents against moving 2000 people into the area

We as residents are against this movement. We were never consulted and request these 2000 people be moved into the leafy suburbs, to the likes of Constantia where the COCT will act more responsive in "Operation cleanup" once the countrywide lockdown is over.

This is the innocent victim of prolific animal cruelty, at the hands of one woman. One of 100 dead and dying dogs found at her property in Clare Estate in April 2019. All the animals were suffering from starvation, dehydration, coccidiosis (from eating faeces), disease, parasite infestations, blindness, infected bite wounds from fighting among themselves, inbred deformities, and open, foetid wounds. Of the 80 dogs found alive, not one could be saved. The owner was charged on 80 separate counts

South Africa has implemented one of the strictest lockdown conditions in the world during the Corona crisis. There is hardly any other country that does not at least allow people to walk around in their neighbourhoods. As pointed out by experts like Alexander Broadbent, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Institute for the Future of Knowledge (a), as well as many other citizens like poet Ntsiki Mazwai (b) who wrote a scathing open letter addressed to President Cyril Ramaphosa opposing hi

Reduce HPCSA fees for Optometrists

Optometrists pay the highest annual HPCSA (Health Professionals Council Of South Africa) fees as compared to other primary practitioners, such as Physiotherapists and Speech Therapists. This has been consistent for a number of years. Optometrists are asked to pay fees of R2470 (2020 rate), almost as much as General Practitioners (R2500 (2020 rate)) who have the title of 'Doctor' before their name, and are placed in a much higher income bracket as compared to Optometrists. Our aim, as Optometrist

Smoking does not change behavior or create social gatherings unlike alcohol use. There is no legal or health basis to ban the use of cigarettes in a personal ca

MAN 307 Term Test 1

Good Day   It is of great concern the number of students that are complaining about the MAN 307 term test that was written (13 March 2020). Also students have stated in the WhatsApp group their difficulty in completing the term test. (Proof can be proved upon request). We are of the opinion that it is unfair to test students on concepts that were not taught to us in class or in tutorials. Why do we have tutorials sessions or lectures if the work covered is not being tested in the term test With
