On this show we spoken to various role players after complaints that the City of Cape Town and private security firms have been targeting homeless people and fining them basically for being poor also there are almost 7000 people in South African jails that have been granted bail but due to their financial circumstances they are unable to pay their bail which is often less than R500 so they languish in jail for the duration of their trail which could last up to two years.

Discovery Vitality discounts on flights may be much smaller than you think

21 October 2019 10:12 PM

There have been several caveats, many of which have lead to complaints about the
true value of the advertised discounts. And in reality, our analysis shows, what is
advertised as a 25% discount can in fact be as little as 13%.

When a customer in a social media response to this issue raised on the Vitality
Facebook page, the company said “The total Discovery amount reflecting throughout
the booking process does not include the booking fee which only reflects before the
payment screen.”

Men as early childhood development practitioners

21 October 2019 9:17 PM

Where you place your child for care and early learning is one of the most important
decisions a parent can make. The people and places that surround a young child
influence their cognitive and emotional development for life. This is also likely to be the
first social space that a child encounters without a parent, and it will shape the child’s
engagement with most social institutions in future, including school, tertiary education
and even the workplace.
