Making headlines: SA Post Office pours cold water on talk of liquidation, Tshwane councillors fail to pass crucial City budget and, Ngcukaitobi tells court humanitarian crisis trying to be averted through Zim permit interdict



SA Post Office pours cold water on talk of liquidation

In light of the published articles pertaining to its provisional liquidation, the South African Post Office has affirmed a substantial commitment to ensuring its long-term survival.


The Sapo contended that the much-publicised provisional liquidation order related to a debt that had been settled and asserted that their ‘Post Office of Tomorrow Strategy’ was sound and would achieve its objectives.

It pointed to the support of “the shareholder” through funding of R2.4-billion from National Treasury to enable it to settle with some of its historical creditors, while implementing the strategy to achieve sustainability.

The SA Post Office says it remains committed to the long-term viability of its business.


Tshwane councillors fail to pass crucial City budget

Councillors in the City of Tshwane failed to pass an adjustment budget that could help cushion the City's financial problems.

Tshwane Mayor Cilliers Brink pleaded with opposition parties to support his budget, saying it would help provide the City with a clear path for financial recovery.

National Treasury issued a directive to the City to urgently cut its expenditure to sustain its survival.

Brink said his adjustment budget would encompass a financial recovery revenue collection plan, which would be revealed in the next few months.


Ngcukaitobi tells court humanitarian crisis trying to be averted through Zim permit interdict

The Zimbabwe Immigration Federation is fighting tooth and nail to interdict the implementation of a decision by Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi not to extend the Zimbabwean Exemption Permits.

Motsoaledi's decision means that about 178 000 Zimbabweans and their dependents face being forcibly returned to their home country.

The group is seeking interim relief from the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria to "safeguard" the constitutional rights of permit holders to ensure they are not "prematurely" deported or arrested, among other things.

Advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi told a full Bench of the court that the home affairs department should allow permit holders to stay in South Africa temporarily while the judicial process ran its course.
