The City of Cape Town’s re-blocking project in Flamingo Crescent informal settlement in Athlone has been completed. Approximately R2 million has been spent on upgrading services and making improvements, including the provision of full basic services to 110 households. This re-blocking initiative forms part of the City’s efforts to enable redress through increased service delivery.

Households in Flamingo Crescent informal settlement now have access to individual sanitation, water and electricity services, thanks to the completion of the City’s re-blocking project in this settlement. Paved pedestrian and vehicular access ways for emergency vehicles have also been constructed.

This project is part of the Human Settlements Directorate’s pilot re-blocking roll-out in informal settlements across the metro.

The Cambist investment platform’s parent company OneLaw is cutting staff through a rightsizing exercise and is looking at new revenue streams due to a decline in the number of emolument attachment orders (EAOs) in the market.

Arnoud van den Bout, Onelaw’s COO, confirmed on Friday that retrenchment letters were handed to all staff members as part of a “rightsizing” exercise. He admitted that this process would lead to job losses, but that “the business will carry on as per usual, although in a smaller way than before, based on what the company can afford in terms of current turnover”.

Van den Bout said changes to the industry had forced a resize of the business, including the fact that a number of banks were no longer using emolument attachment orders (EAOs). “Courts are finding it more difficult to obtain valid judgements, consumers are under stress and less able to afford EAOs,” he said.

An EAO is a court order forcing an employee’s employer to deduct money from the employee’s salary to settle a debt the employee owes to a third party. OneLaw facilitates the debt collection process through EAOs for debt collection attorneys. It launched the Cambist Online Platform in 2012, allowing members of the public to purchase these debt contracts at a discount, and to receive up to 19.5% return per annum.

BROKE: Vumelani Mchunu can't afford to pay Zuma's bill

BROKE: Vumelani Mchunu can’t afford to pay Zuma’s bill

The man who has offered to pay back what President Jacob Zuma owes to the public for his role in the Nkandla debacle is a struggling wannabe filmmaker who lives with his parents.

Vumelani Mchunu, who gained instant fame when a letter he wrote to parliament’s ad hoc committee was made public on Thursday, has no stable job and the office addres.

The 33-year-old was featured on radio shows and quoted by various newspapers on Thursday and Friday after he wrote to parliament saying the PMUT, which he purports to chair, “will pay that money back on behalf of the president”.

But it has now emerged that not only is the PMUT’s address – which is given as 250 Avoca Hills in Durban – fictitious, it is also an “unregistered … non-profit organisation”.

Mchunu on Friday admitted that his organisation was unregistered and told the Sunday Times that he did not personally know Zuma.

Pic: bbc.comAustralia coach Ewen McKenzie resigned following their 29-28 defeat by New Zealand in Brisbane.

McKenzie oversaw defeats in Australia’s past three games and leaves less than a year before the World Cup.

The 49-year-old was also under pressure  because of a row overoffensive text messages back Kurtley Beale allegedly sent about a team official in June.

“My intention was to resign win, lose or draw,” McKenzie said. “I’ve been unhappy with a bunch of things.”

McKenzie, who took over from Robbie Deans 15 months ago, added: “The easiest thing for me is to exit stage left.

“I’ll leave you guys to speculate or ponder, I’ll write a chapter in my book.”

Australian Rugby Union (ARU) chief executive Bill Pulver said: “I did not ask Ewen to resign, but understand his decision.”

Australia take on Wales, France, Ireland and England in November.

The Wallabies are also in the same group as Wales and hosts England for the 2015 World Cup.

McKenzie won 11 of his 22 Tests in charge, including a seven-match winning streak.

But defeats by South Africa and Argentina in the Rugby Championship were followed by Saturday’s loss to the All Blacks, who scored a last-minute converted try.
