ARE FOREIGNERS STEALING YOUR JOBS AND HEALTHCARE? FIND OUT

A 'foreign threat’ could be a convenient boogeyman in an election season where politicians will face questions about their failures. Or not?

Last week, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi claimed in a speech at the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union’s (Nehawu) Nurses’ Summit that undocumented immigrants are flooding South Africa and overburdening clinics and hospitals.

When immigrants “get admitted in large numbers, they cause overcrowding, infection control starts failing”, he said.

New app takes African short stories to the world

Anew local app hopes to give African writers global exposure by connecting them with literature fanatics in SA, US and the UK.

Storytelling app BookBeak says it is the first African app-based platform to aggregate African short stories from published, unpublished and self-published writers and serve them to a global audience.

The app, available on Android and iOS app stores, was founded by three young South Africans, Kamo Sesing, Cam Naidoo and Louis Enslin, and registered under their business Atheneum.

Big polluter Eskom regularly exceeds air pollution limits – damning new report

A new international expert report commissioned by the Life After Coal campaign shows that pollution from nearly all of Eskom’s coal-fired power plants persistently and significantly violates the air pollution limits in its licences.

This is not only illegal, but also means that Eskom is continuously endangering the health and violating the human rights of millions of people affected by this pollution.

The international expert report was based on Eskom’s own monthly reports of the emissions from its coal power plants, which Eskom submitted to authorities.

Tax compliance is crucial for PBOs and their donors

South Africa’s Public Benefit Organisations (PBOs) do invaluable work uplifting communities and benefiting underprivileged people across our country. Sadly, most of these entities do not have the resources to ensure that they are fully tax compliant.

However, the tax status of a SARS approved Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) is crucial to its ability to raise funds and attract donors, who along with wanting to be philanthropic, are attracted by the tax deductions that come with donations to such organisations.
