The View Point 19 September 2019 Rock of Ages

Songezo Mabece interviewed the cast members of the musical, Zak Hendrikz who plays LONNY and Lebohang Toko who plays JA’KEITH

Slowly but surely we are getting used to the concept of theater as a country, and more and more we’re seeing adaptations of international theatrical plays trickle in but it’s always sweeter when they incorporate our own talent into the musical.
Hit musical, Rock of Ages is doing just that. It is set to rock Montecasino’s Teatro for the first time from Thursday, 26 September to Sunday, 20 October. The musical features 28 classic rock songs from the 1980s including hits “Don’t Stop Believin'”, “The Final Countdown”, “Here I Go Again” and many more. As the humorous high-energy storyline unfolds, the audience takes a journey back to a colourful era while singing-a-long to rock anthems that come alive on stage. Rock of Ages is a feel-good stage production where audiences are rocking in their seats at every performance.
So if you’re a fan of any of the songs I just mentioned then stay tuned for more.

The View Point 19 September 2019 Comic Relief at the annual Homecoming Africa event

Songezo Mabece was in conversation with comedians Thapelo FlatKing and Tiki Pasha

Well, they say laughter is good for the soul and I’m sure most of us can attest to that. As a country we can definitely use some good news and some laughter right now. So we thought we’d invite a couple of Comedians for some comic relief.
Thapelo KingFlat is hosting a Comedy show at year’s Homecoming Africa. Homecoming Africa is the first event of an evening revolution set to take the continent by storm. It’s a celebration of African music, culture and lifestyle as well as the building of the cultural bridge between international artists and local support bases.
For the first time in 10 years, the event will include a comedy show. The lineup consists of all black comedians among them is Tiki Pasha who is also here today with KingFlat. What makes it more of a talking point is the fact that this is all happening at the Voortrekker Monument.
This particular monument was built in honour of the Voortrekkers (Pioneers) who left the Cape Colony in their thousands between 1835 and 1854.

The View Point 19 September 2019

How the last 20 minutes before bedtime can help you raise resilient children

Songezo Mabece is in conversation with a children’s book author, Andrew Newman

We’ve just spoken about the Constitutional Court’s corporate punishment ruling in the first half hour where it ruled that it is now illegal for parents to hit their children.
It is befitting then to find more ways to parents, caregivers and guardians build stronger connections with their children. Wouldn’t you agree?
On the line now we’re joined by someone who has been doing so for the past few years. Andrew Newman, an international Author of 14 children’s book has been spreading the message of why the last 20 minutes of a parent and child’s day before bedtime is an important and vital period to teach children core values for their self-development through reading as well as help them deal with the challenges that come across their path each day.

The View Point 19 September 2019Constitutional Court Judgement on Corporal Punishment in the Home

Songezo Mabece is in conversation with Mr Wessel van den Berg, Manager for the Children’s Rights and Positive Parenting Unit at Sonke Gender Justice

A new ruling in favour of children. Yesterday Constitution Court ruled against Freedom of Religion South Africa, saying use of moderate and reasonable punishment, which included spanking, was inconsistent with the Constitution. In simple terms, hitting your child is now against the law.
Freedom of Religion SA’s argument was that parents should be given the right to discipline their own children without the interference of the state.
But the law ruled against that. What does this mean for parents, how does this impact a child’s upbringing?

The 7th Annual Spring Law Conference: Reflections on South Africa’s law, politics, society and development 25 years into democracy

This year marks a quarter of a century since the much-celebrated “post-Apartheid” South African dispensation dawned in 1994. To reflect on this, the University of South Africa (Unisa)’s College of Law will host the 7th Annual Spring Law Conference on 17-19 September 2019 under the theme “Reflections on South Africa @ 25: Law, politics, society and development”. Considering the fact that yesterday was World International Democracy Day, has democracy benefitted the previously advantaged? Are things falling into place like we had hoped they would back in 1994 or has inequality, corruption and the slow pace of delivery tarnished a lot more?

Songezo Mabece was in conversation with Mr David Letsoalo, the Chairman of the Unisa Annual Spring Law Conference

The View Point 11 September 2019 National Wills Week: How about leaving a portion for orphaned children?

National Wills Week is used to create awareness about the importance of having a Will.
Attorneys across the country are offering their services to members of the public to put in place a basic Will drafted by them, free of charge. But this is also a time to consider leaving a portion of your estate to charity organisations in a form of a Charitable bequest. A charitable bequest is simply a distribution from your deceased estate to a charitable organisation by a bequest in your Will.

The SOS Children’s Villages is taking advantage of this week and nudging people to consider them as beneficiaries via their SOS Children’s Villages Bequest Programme… How many people actually consider this? Do charities make get reasonable and meaningful donations via charitable bequests? How often do family members of the deceased comply with the wish to donate a portion to charity?

Songezo Mabece was in conversation with Ms Rashilla Francis, the National Legacy Officer at SOS Children’s Villages.

The View Point 10 September 2019 The 12th ACFE Annual African Conference and Exhibition

The 12th Annual ACFE Africa Fraud Conference is hosted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) South Africa Chapter. It is recognised as the largest anti-fraud event in Africa and the second largest in the world. This event brings together more than 1,000 anti-fraud professionals from more than 20 countries — all with the shared desire to gain leading-edge knowledge.

Fraud and corruption across Africa is widespread, despite the activities of governments and other regulatory bodies to stem it. It has become prevalent in recent years mainly because the deterrents to such activities are not fully applied. The socio-cultural factor must also be considered, where corrupt persons are praised and no questions are asked as to the source of their wealth. Furthermore, there’s the reluctance of becoming a whistle blower - anyone who dares to raise a comment on the sudden wealth attained by these individuals is vilified.

The View Point 10 September 2019 Izwi domestic worker’s alliance

Izwi domestic worker’s alliance – addressing disputes between employers and employees
Songezo Mabece spoke to Ms Maggie Mthombeni, the co-founder of Izwi Domestic Worker’s Alliance

We’re talking about the unfair treatment of domestic workers and the lack of employer compliance with respect to contracts, annual increases, pay slips and UIF registrations. It has been highlighted that one of the major challenges of achieving the realisation of employment rights for domestic workers is the lack of knowledge of legal obligations by employers.
While many people have ventured into employment placement agencies for domestic workers, Izwi is in the business of maintaining the working relationship and assisting domestic workers with legal advice, should things go sour.
