Uplift ban of ciggarettes SA LOCKDOWN

We the tax paying citizens of South Africa demand our right to purchase cigarettes LEGALLY as would be the normal case of carrying out the right to  purchase food and other essentials.  Smokers DO NOT spread Covid 19 by smoking in their homes.  We are even grossly prejudiced and expect our constitutional right of choice to be reinstated. 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

As pointed out by experts like Professor Knut Wittkowski, for twenty years head of The Rockefeller University's Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design, Alexander Broadbent, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Institute for the Future of Knowledge (a

Due to the covid-19 pandemic a lot of temporary visa holders in Australia (visitor visas, student visas, 482 visa holders, working holiday visas), have been left unemployed and stranded in Australia.

Make SSME Relief Finance during Covid-19 for all, not only for 51% Black owned

During this rough time in our country all South African citizens are at risk, whether you earn R200 000 / month or R2 000 / month. We are all at risk of being infected. To add to that Covid-19 does not target any particular race or gender, once again we are all at risk. There are so many small companies in South Africa that are struggling and cannot make a living because of this. It is affecting a lot of people. Now the great thing is the Government of South Africa put together a fund to help sm

Of the 80 dogs found alive, not one could be saved. The owner was charged on 80 separate counts

DON'T Cancel Vega Graduation. Postpone it!

We have received an email stating that our graduation ceremonies have been cancelled. As students, we feel that we have worked exceptionally hard over the past 3 years and deserve a graduation ceremony. We have paid a lot of money to attend our institution and find it completely unfair that they have just decided to go ahead and cancel graduation instead of suggesting a postponement till the time is right. As students, receiving your degree is a huge honour and many of our parents wait for the d
