It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn.
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you.
The journey is part of the experience — an expression of the seriousness of one’s intent. One doesn’t take the A train to Mecca.
Mogalakwena municipality in Mokopane, Limpopo, is facing legal action over the re-instatement of a senior official who was dismissed after being found guilty on several charges. A report in the Sowetan says this follows allegations that the decision to re-instate the official was done on instruction of the ANC. The council has been dragged to the North Gauteng High Court over the reinstatement following allegations that the official was found guilty on 26 different charges. The papers filed with the court by Mahwelereng civic leader Piet Pale show that the ANC in the Waterberg region wrote to Mayor Esther Mothibi, instructing her to convene a special council meeting to reverse the disciplinary hearing’s findings and re-instate municipal director for corporate services, Henry Thobejane. Pale seeks an order to set aside the resolution by the council to re-instate Thobejane because ‘it fails to pass the test of rationality and reasonableness’. Thobejane was charged with, among others, fraud, theft, gross dishonesty, dereliction of duties, unofficial removal of official documents and destroying official information, financial misconduct and failure to carry out lawful instructions. The hearing, chaired by Advocate AP Laka, found him guilty on all 26 charges and recommended that he be dismissed with immediate effect. – LegalbriefsBACK TO TOP
