NHI TAX HIKES ARE COMING - Ramaphosa was “looking for a pen” to sign the bill into law

BRITS POS – BRITS - The National Department of Health has again confirmed that tax hikes and other tax changes are on the way to fund the National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme – which is still awaiting President Cyril Ramaphosa’s signature.
Responding to a written parliamentary Q&A, health minister Joe Phaahla was asked to share more details on how the government will fund the NHI through taxes and the rate of tax that will be imposed on individual taxpayers.
Business Tech reports that as has been the case with much of the deliberations, debates, and government communications around the NHI, there was no real answer to the question—the issue of funding the scheme has been pushed back until after the foundation for the NHI Fund had already been made law.

Son’s quick action foils rogues

BRITS POS – PHOKENG - The quick thinking of a widow’s 20-year-old son as well as cross-border collaborations, assisted in tracing and apprehending two suspects, aged 31 and 43, in Soshanguve, Gauteng. 
As a 47-year-old widow arrived home from work on Monday at Chaneng in Phokeng, five suspects overpowered and kidnapped her, taking her Toyota Corolla and forced her into their Mercedes Benz and drove off.
When his mom didn’t arrive back home from work, her son called her to check if everything was ok. 
He could hear that something was wrong and activated her vehicle’s tracking system which showed that the victim wasn’t where she told her son she was at, but in Mooinooi.


BRITS POS – BRITS – On Tuesday evening, 16 April around 19:50 motor vehicles were travelling on the N4 direction Pretoria and a number of kilometers after exiting the Brits Toll Plaza, a man who was driving from Rustenburg to Pretoria with his father, hit one of the rocks that were placed on the road by thugs, which caused a puncture to one of the tyres.
They stopped on the side of the road to inspect the damage and the driver called his cousin to inform him about their dilemma.
Then they were approached by three males, demanding money and their belongings.
