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

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

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.”

Lisa Joshua Sonn - Why our laaities are dying

20 November 2019 9:56 PM

Guests : Lisa Joshua Sonn
               Alex Tabisher|columnist with the Cape Argus

Tonight on our weekly slot with Lisa Sonn we have a guest, Alex Tabisher, a columnist
with the Cape Argus who wrote an thought provoking column" Dear coloured parent,
our laaities are dying..."

Dear coloured parent
Our laaities are dying...
Our laaities are dying because 5-year-old Joshua was never taught to respect his elders.
Our laaitjies are dying because it was cute when 2-year-old Chad learnt his first swear
word.
They are dying because when teachers sent rude Kyle home, Mommy came to school to
defend her baby...
We are dying coz in Grade 4 daddy told me to go back and fight Keenan, “Don’t leave it
like that...” instead of just teaching me how to walk away
Our laaities are dying coz mommy buys 10-year-old Jade the most expensive takkies
just to make up for not always being around...
They are dying because Uncle Shaun couldn’t discipline Raldo...
“You are not his father, leave my child alone.”
Our laaities are dying because self-respect went out the window...
Our laaities are dying not because we are stupid, or have no ambition, or want to live
like that...
Coloured parent, our laaities are dying because we never had good role models to look
up to...
Most people will be quick to say it's the fault of government that we can no longer
discipline or kids but the issue runs much deeper than that, we have abdicated our
responsibility of raising & disciplining our kids.

Eastern Cape drought

20 November 2019 9:24 PM

Guest : Kaylynn Palm| EWN Reporter

Drought conditions are causing headaches for schools situated in Makhanda as they
experience daily shortages.
The Eastern Cape was declared a drought disaster area last month.
Some schools in parts of the town are affected by the ongoing drought which are
causing sanitation problems.
At Archie Mbolekwa Primary School, after 10am almost every day, the taps run dry.
The toilets stop flushing, so learners can't use them and they are forced to use the
bushes instead.
A nearby school, Ntiska Secondary, faced closure not so long ago but principal
Madeleine Schoeman was determined not to let it come to that.
Schoeman's school was lucky though in that it got a Gift of the Givers' borehole on the
premises.

             Roxy Dallas | Recruitment Specialist

Johan van Straaten is a 74 year retired resident engineer in road construction, his job is
his life & passion and he's not enjoying retirement.
He has approached recruitment agencies but no luck, what is a man passionate about
his work to do? Some might say he should stay at home, find a hobby and leave the
work to the younger folk but Johan feels he has so many years of expertise he can pass
on to the new breed of road engineers.
