FORMER SARS SPOKESMAN FACES R10M LAWSUIT

No Fear No Favour No Corrupt President..........

JOHANNESBURG – The South African Revenue Service (Sars) said on Monday it's demanding R10 million in damages from its former spokesperson Adrian Lackay because his actions in publishing confidential tax information may lead to some companies refusing to pay tax.

Lackay has confirmed he's being sued jointly by Sars and its Commissioner Thomas Moyane after writing a letter to two Parliamentary committees.

In that letter, he claims that British American Tobacco (BAT) may have broken the law and that the truth about the alleged rogue spy unit has not yet been told.

Sars said it wants R10 million from Lackay and is demanding another R2 million for Moyane.

The organisation’s Luther Lebelo said what Lackay did could have hugely expensive implications for the revenue service. 

“Once they lose confidence in our capacity to hold confidential information about them and they decide not to pay tax, that can go into billions of rands, which will not impact him as a person, but it will create debt for South Africa and the poor of this country.”

But going to court could be risky for Sars.

It may give Lackay an opportunity to insist that he be given a chance to tell his full side of the story in public. 

That may mean Moyane has to respond to Lackay’s claim that he didn’t properly investigate the alleged rogue spy unit.

JOHANNESBURG - Another British American Tobacco (BAT) vehicle has been robbed, this time in Langlaagte west of Johannesburg.
It’s understood the driver was making a delivery at a shop on Wednesday morning when he was confronted by two armed men.
The police’s Katlego Mogale said, “When he proceeded to deliver the cigarettes to the garage next door and as he approached the garage he was confronted by two suspects who pointed a firearm at him and took the cigarettes, as well as his keys and his jacket. They went back to the police station where they took the vehicle and fled the scene.”
This is the second BAT vehicle to be targeted in a matter of days.
On Tuesday, an armed gang travelling in three cars robbed another of the firms vans on Peter Road in Honeydew.

US plane impounded in Zimbabwe; body and cash found on board





Associated Press 

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Zimbabwean aviation authorities impounded a U.S.-registered cargo jet, a senior official said Monday, after a dead body later believed to be a stowaway and millions of South African rand were found on board.
The Herald, a state-run newspaper, reported that the MD-11 trijet was traveling from Germany to South Africa "with millions of rands." At today's exchange rate, 1 million rand is worth $62,500.
Authorities here learned the money belonged to the South Africa Reserve Bank, the country's central bank. Police planned to issue a statement later Monday.
The plane had landed in Harare for refueling, said Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe general manager David Chawota. He said the jet, registered with Western Global Airlines, was impounded at Harare airport on Sunday. A website says Western Global Airlines is based in Estero, Florida. The airline on Monday said the cargo belonged to the South African Reserve Bank and the dead body belonged presumably to a stowaway. Zimbabwe police said it was still investigating the matter.
The crew did not know there was someone else on the plane, according to a police officer, who insisted on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press. It appears from photos on social media that the dead person had sneaked into the plane's landing gear, which severed his arm when it contracted, causing blood to splatter onto the fuselage and arousing the suspicion of the ground crew when the flight landed here.
In a response to AP queries, Western Global Airlines said it didn't have the identity of the dead person, believed to be a stowaway.
"The aircraft is leased to Network Airline Management, a longtime customer based in the UK, and the shipment consignee was the South African Reserve Bank. This particular flight was from Germany to South Africa, we are told for the South African government. During a routine fuel stop in Zimbabwe, a body was found in the lower compartment. The body is presumed to be a stowaway who may have entered the airplane during a previous stop. The situation is currently under review," the airline said in an e-mail response to The Associated Press.
South Africa's ambassador to Zimbabwe, Vusi Mavimbela, confirmed that the cargo belonged to the South African Reserve Bank but refused to divulge further details, saying he was still liaising with the Zimbabwe government to resolve the matter. He refused to divulge the nature of the cargo or the amount of money that was in the plane.
Zimbabwe police spokeswoman Charity Charamba said investigations are still underway.
"Our officers are on the ground investigating the case. We are working hard to get the identity of this dead person but I will only give clearer details when investigations are complete. The body has been taken for tests by experts," she said on Monday night.
The crew, according to the Herald, includes two Americans, a South African and a Pakistani.

THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT RACISM

How the hell can we believe you Mr President?

"South Africans are psychologically sick as a result of the violence inflicted upon the majority of the country’s people during the apartheid era ", President Jacob Zuma said.

This lie is getting really old! The history of black South Africans has always been that of violence, death and destruction - NOT inflicted upon them by white people in this country.

Shaka Zulu, during his 10-year reign butchered more than 2 million black people in South Africa , not counting the deaths during mass tribal migrations to escape his armies. He had his warriors clubbed to death upon the merest sign of weakness. He neither took a legal wife nor fathered a son, for fear that his heir would plot against him, and had his concubines executed if he discovered they were pregnant. When his mother died, he massacred thousands of his subjects so their families would mourn along with him. Shaka retained his throne through the worst kind of sheer terror, vast mass executions, torture and mindless butchery.

His brother, Dingane, was no better. He took power after the assassination of Shaka and started his reign by butchering those loyal to Shaka.

THAT, amongst many other horror stories of black-on-black violence, is the history of Black South Africa.

During the Apartheid years it was not better. Factional fighting and tribal conflict was again the main cause of violence and death amongst black South Africans.

During the Apartheid era, from 1948 to 1994, the average life expectancy of black South Africans had risen to 64 years, on par with Europe ' s average life expectancy. Infant death rates had by then been re duced from 174 to 55 infant deaths per thousand, higher than Europe ' s, but considerably lower than the rest of the African continent ' s. The African population in South Africa increased by 50%.

Deaths due to political violence during apartheid:

21 000 people died in political violence in South Africa during apartheid of whom 14 000 died during the transition process from 1990 to 1994.

This includes SA Defence Force actions, for instance the 600 deaths at Kassinga in Angola during the war in 1978.

Of those deaths, the vast majority, 92%, have been primarily due to Africans killing Africans, such as the inter-tribal battles for territory.

During the period June 1990 to July 1993 a total of 8580 (92%) of the 9 325 violent deaths during the period June 1990 to July 1993 were caused by Africans killing Africans, or as the news media often calls it, "Black on Black" violence - hostel killings, Inkatha Freedom Party versus ANC k illings and taxi and turf war violence.

The security forces caused 518 deaths (5.6%) throughout this period.

During the transitional period, the primary causes of deaths were not security forces nor white right-wing violence against blacks, but due to "black-on-black necklace murders", tribal conflict between the ANC-IFP, bombs by the ANC and PAC ' s military wings in shopping centers, landmines on farm roads, etc.

In this country TODAY (under black rule) as many as 18 000 people are murdered EVERY year. ...and those are the official statistics. More than 400 000 people have been murdered in South Africa under ANC rule. The past 20 years have been the most violent in the history of this country since the death of Shaka Zulu
...and NONE of it has anything to do with WHITE people or APARTHEID... but I guess if you repeat the lie often enough foreigners actually start believing the drivel coming from your mouth, Mr. Uneducated President !!!”

Unfortunately people from all over the world believe the lies you have spread and wrongly blame the Whites for Racism!!
