More delay tactics through Parliamentary motions:

EWN Correspondent, Rahima Essop on this story: for a second time, Members of Parliament (MPs) have resorted to filibustering, to delay a debate in the National Assembly. The majority African National Congress (ANC) MPs launched a filibuster to delay a debate on the Democratic Alliance (DA)’s motion of censure against President Jacob Zuma. Tempers flared as DA Parliamentary leader Mmusi Maimane opened the debate by calling on MPs to vote to censure the president. In the end the motion was rejected.

Anger over dropping charges of Taegrin Morris murder suspect:

EWN Correspondent Masego Rahlaga on this story: Gauteng Police Commissioner Lesetja Mothiba says he is angry following the outcome of the Taegrin Morris case in the Boksburg Magistrates Court. The four-year-old was dragged behind his mother’s hijacked vehicle for several kilometres and found dead next to the abandoned VW golf in July.

Tax filing deadline tomorrow:

The Tax Season deadline of 21 November 2014 is the last day for individual taxpayers to file their return. 1 July marked the start of the Tax Season 2014 for Individuals. The annual Tax Season is when you need to complete and submit an Income Tax Return (ITR12) to SARS. During Tax Season, taxpayers need to submit an ITR12 (which is your Income Tax Return) so SARS can calculate your tax liability based on your declared income and the tax-deductible expenses incurred for the assessment year (1 March 2013 - 28 February 2014), which may, in some cases, result in a refund. For handy tax tips to help you easily and honestly submit your ITR12 on time, click here.
