Telkom plays down vehicle shortage fears

Johannesburg – Telecommunications giant Telkom has played down fears that it is experiencing a vehicle shortage for its technicians. From July 1 2015, Telkom has signed on Bidvest as its sole supplier of fleet management services for the likes of technicians at the company. The agreement with Bidvest comes after Telkom cancelled its deal with fleet management company Debis Fleet Management (DFM). DFM provided a fleet of vehicles to Telkom since 2000. DFM, though, didn’t leave the deal quietly as earlier this year it challenged Telkom in the North Gauteng High Court in a bid to obtain “clarity regarding certain important topics relating to the expiry of the agreement”. However, DFM lost the court bid and it had to comply with lead out services of vehicles to Telkom until midnight of June 30. Since then, concerns have been raised that the changeover has resulted in some technicians not having cars, according to an angry customer, a Telkom technician, trade union Solidarity and another technology publication. Sandra Steyn, who runs a luxury guest house business in Hermanus, told Fin24 that a fault on her phone line has been unattended to since June 24 and that she was told by Telkom technicians this week that they currently don’t have cars to attend to customer complaints. A Telkom technical manager in the area declined to comment to Fin24. But Fin24, through phoning a Telkom technical call centre, understands that the vehicle shortage extends […]

SABC to tell truth ‘with balanced perspective’ – CEO

Cape Town – New SABC chief executive officer Frans Matlala said the public broadcaster going forward will tell the truth but will also be “balancing the perspective”. He further said that he will be spending the next three months talking to various people to find out what happened at the SABC in the past and what issues there are. Frans Matlala was announced as the new permanent SABC CEO on Wednesday at the broadcaster’s Auckland Park headquarters, a year and five months after Lulama Mokhobo quit just a few months into her five year contract. Matlala is a supporter and ally of the SABC’s controversial and famously matric-less chief operating officer (COO) Hlaudi Motsoeneng. Matlala was also an advisory consultant for the SABC for a year and he said there is room for improvement at the beleaguered SABC. The public broadcaster has been lurching constantly from crisis to crisis and scandal to scandal since 2009 when it came to the brink of financial collapse and got a R1bn bailout in the form of a government guaranteed loan from Nedbank. The SABC – fraught with ongoing insider politics, executive and SABC board room power struggles and growing perception concerns about news bias, maladministration and undue political interference – faces big internal challenges. There’s also the looming and expensive switch from analogue to digital terrestrial television (DTT) which the SABC will now only start with five channels, one of which will be […]

WATCH: Skydiving granny still paying tax at 100

Cape Town – The 100-year-old granny who stole the hearts of millions when she went sky diving on her birthday has now added another crazy stunt to her bucket list: she paid her tax on Wednesday – the first day of tax filing season. Georgina Harwood might not be your average pensioner, but she told Fin24 that she was just an ordinary citizen and that paying tax was one of her duties. ‘Keep your integrity’ July 1 was the official start of the tax season and Harwood was invited to cut the ribbon at 7:45 on Wednesday in Lower Long Street, Cape Town. The dare-devil granny made headlines on her 100th birthday on 10 March 2015, when she skydived over the skies of Cape Town. Six days later, Harwood went shark-cage diving to come face-to-face with the great white. “My message to the youth of South Africa is to keep their integrity in every way,” she told Fin24 after the tax doors opened to a group of 800 people queuing outside and millions more across the country. “Pay tax; look after yourselves [and] look after your families,” she said. “I think women should be more aware of their instincts as being carers. “Their families and their homes and their husbands [should be] their first care.” A life paying tax “I’ve been earning a salary since I was 25,” she said. “That’s a long time. “Then I got married, you see, […]

Frans Matlala appointed as new SABC CEO

Cape Town – Frans Matlala has been appointed as the SABC’s new chief executive officer, saying “I need to acknowledge the honour I’ve been given”. Frans Matlala, a consultant to the public broadcaster for project management and strategic advisory services, has been a keen supporter of the SABC’s controversial and famously matric-less chief operating officer (COO) Hlaudi Motsoeneng, The appointment comes almost a year and a half since Lulama Mokhobo abruptly quit in February 2014 after just 14 months into her five year contract without any explanation. That left Hlaudi Motsoeneng in charge as the next highest ranking SABC executive, himself embroiled in litigation over his appointment and fingered in a scathing report from the Public Protector, implicating him in maladministration, corruption and abuse of power at the SABC. Like Eskom, South African Airways (SAA) and the South African Post Office (Sapo), the SABC’s new CEO faces a daunting and herculean task to try and rescue the struggling broadcaster, which came to the brink of financial collapse in 2009. Frans Matlala also becomes the SABC’s 9th CEO – including those who were appointed in an acting capacity in the position for a period of time – to be in charge of the public broadcaster since 2009. Over the past six years, several SABC chief executives left before their terms ended, while others received golden handshakes when leaving and some even took legal action when their contracts were terminated. The appointment […]
