Exclusive Mandate vs Open Mandate

Written by Christelle Niemandt. Posted in Letters

Sellers have a right to choose what kind of mandate or authority to sell a property they will give to an agent.
An open mandate is usually a verbal instruction given to more than one agent to market and sell a property. An exclusive mandate is an instruction for one agent to provide the same service, no one else except the agent can sell the property. However sellers need to be clear with which mandate will work for them; more importantly understand the pros and cons of each.

SACP withdraws from alliance with NW ANC

Written by Christelle Niemandt. Posted in Letters

The SACP Moses Kotane has noted the anti-communist statements made by different structures including ANC Leaders outside the Durban Court today.
These unfortunate statements were made as part of a Campaign to support Comrade Jacob Zuma in his criminal case. It was interesting to note that state-looters and those who collapsed state institutions were featured prominently during this Court Rally. The consistent attack on the SACP and our General Secretary Comrade Blade Nzimande by most speakers at that event is intended to challenge initiatives by Comrade Cyril Ramaphosa and the ANC NEC to renew and strengthen the Revolutionary Alliance. The ANC NEC on its part has resolved as an organization on how members and leaders of the ANC should relate with the Zuma court processes. It is really unfortunate that some leaders of the ANC opted to deliberately act in violation of this decision and even went further to use the event to ridicule the ANC NEC.

Written by Christelle Niemandt. Posted in Letters

Sir/ Madam
 I strongly would like to warn you my honorable Premier- in-waiting in respect of the driver’s seat of the North West Province, not to take the path of your predecessor by ignoring the word of the Prophet – 2 Chronicles 20:20. Come for Comprehensive Counselling on Governance and Service Delivery before taking your Constitutional Oath. Dynamites are wrapped in small packages. Take my word my honor. In Divine/Spiritual terms, we call it anointing, though it is not physical BUT just oral. The anointing is for free! God knows how the Wealth of this Province should benefit the inhabitants thereof and He will reveal such secrets to you through the mouth of the Prophet – Amos 3:7

People with disabilities likely to be impoverished

Written by Christelle Niemandt. Posted in Letters

People with disabilities are more likely to stay trapped in poverty as they face multiple barriers to securing a livelihood and fully participating in society. It is often said that disability is both a cause and a consequence of poverty--meaning that people with disabilities are likely to be impoverished, while on the other hand poverty creates conditions for increased risk of disability.
