R6m fuel injection for Gift of the Givers

first_imgEngen committed fuel to the value of R2 million annually to Gift of the Givers, over the next three years. A partnership between a petroleum company and humanitarian relief organisation, Gift of the Givers, will see to it that the latter receives R2 million worth of fuel every year for the next three years.A ceremonial cheque handover was held at the Gift of the Givers office in Penlyn Estate on Tuesday February 18, where executives of Engen donated the first R2 million.Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, founder and chairperson of Gift of the Givers, said Engen’s willingness to come to them was “humility and generosity at its best”.“You are giving us the money and you come to us,” Dr Sooliman said.He said the organisation had a total of 21 projects but it was its intervention when disasters struck that made it internationally known. He explained to the donors that the organisation had been started through an instruction given to him by his spiritual leader, Muhammed Saffer Effendi al Jerrahi, in Istanbul, Turkey in August 1992.“I can’t take credit for anything. It is only by the grace of God Almighty. Already this month we have been in Alice in the Eastern Cape, providing relief to victims of the flooding; Calvinia in the Northern Cape, where farmers and farmworkers have no resources available for themselves or their animals; Graaff-Reinet to provide items crucial for the survival of drought victims; and Ntinini in KwaZulu-Natal to feed the hungry, among others.”Dr Sooliman said their convoys travelled long distances across the country to deliver relief to those South Africans most in need.“This generous commitment by Engen to assist with our fuel costs is going to make a significant difference to the reach of our intervention efforts. “A partnership with like-minded brands such as Engen, will enable us to strengthen our ability to make an impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable people across South Africa,” he added.The cheque handover ceremony was attended by Engen chairperson Dato’ Sri Syed Zainal Abidin and Engen managing director and chief executive officer Yusa’ Hassan. “Given the challenging social context in South Africa, Engen is firmly committed to investing in sustainable development initiatives that offer tangible value to the communities in which we operate. “And given the wide reach and incredible national relief efforts of the Gift of the Givers, Engen sees much value in this partnership” said Mr Abidin. 1 of 2 Founder and chairperson of Gift of the Givers, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, addresses guests at the ceremonial cheque handover.center_img Engen committed fuel to the value of R2 million annually to Gift of the Givers, over the next three years.last_img read more

Georgia man says deputy shot his dog, ordered him to behead it

first_img A man says a sheriff’s office investigator ordered him to cut the head off his dog after it attacked a neighbor.The beheading took place in rural Crawford County, Georgia, after the dog lunged at the deputy and was fatally shot, according to a news release obtained by CBS affiliate WMAZ-TV.Joe Goodwin, the owner of the black-and-white pitbull mix named Big Boy, told WMAZ-TV that deputies gave him two options — take the dog’s body intact to a veterinarian for rabies testing, or cut off the head so the brain could be tested.But deputies wouldn’t let Goodwin leave his property, Goodwin said.Video that Goodwin posted to Facebook appears to show him getting into an argument with deputies before ultimately cutting off the head. A deputy can be heard making the request for Goodwin to behead the dog.

Solicitor falsified six letters to cover inaction

first_imgA solicitor has admitted creating six false letters to make it appear he was progressing his client’s case. Neil Ian Benson, formerly with London practice Hamlins LLP, placed the letters on the firm’s document management system in September 2014 but dated them between May 2013 and September 2014.The letters appeared to show him lodging an application for registration based on adverse possession at the Land Registry, then chasing up that application.His misconduct came to light in November 2014 when his client raised concerns with the firm that no progress was being made in connection with the claim. The client had chased Benson on 14 occasions since between February 2013 and August 2014 for an update in relation to the claim.The Land Registry confirmed no application had been received, and the firm also found no indication on the financial ledger that a cheque had been drawn for payment of disbursements in support of the claim.During a meeting between the firm and Benson, he admitted falsely creating the six letters, and the matter was reported to the Solicitors Regulation Authority. In an agreed statement of facts drawn up with the regulator, Benson admitted dishonesty and failing to materially progress a claim on behalf of his client.In mitigation, Benson, 47 and a solicitor for 21 years, said he was dealing with extremely challenging personal circumstances at the time of the events in question, and those circumstances affected his decision making. He submitted he was suffering from stress and depression and provided medical evidence in this regard.The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal asserted that his misconduct had continued over several months, involved dishonesty and was designed to conceal wrongdoing.He was struck off the roll of solicitors and ordered to pay £5,429 costs.last_img read more

Experts say insurers set for £2.5bn windfall from discount rate

first_imgInsurers could save as much as £2.5bn if the government’s calculations for the personal injury discount rate come to fruition, according to accountants. The Ministry of Justice yesterday revealed that it will legislate to change the formula for calculating deductions from personal injury awards. The rate will be set by reference to rates of return on ‘low risk’ investments rather than ’very low risk’ as at present. Based on the government’s working, if the new system were to be applied today, the rate would be in the region of 0% to 1%.The decision was welcomed by key figures in the insurance industry, and examination of the potential effects by big four accountancy EY explains why. Tony Sault, UK general insurance leader for EY, said the insurance industry had been facing £6.5bn losses from the present rate of -0.75%, which would add 6.5% to motor premiums.‘We believe the new proposals, which the government expects to imply a real rate of 0% to 1%, will have a significant impact on these costs,’ he said. ‘A revision to 0% could reduce these costs by one-third meaning reserve releases of £1.2bn, while a change to 1% could reduce this by two thirds, meaning up to £2.5bn could be saved by insurers and reinsurers compared to their current booked position.’Sault predicted that rises in insurance costs would now level out and premiums could fall by between 2% and 4%, with consumers saving £21 on average.However, the insurance industry has been reluctant to make any specific promises about whether premiums will come down once the legislation is passed.Huw Evans, director general of the Association of British Insurers, said the change will ‘relieve some of the cost pressures on motor and liability insurance in a way that can only benefit customers’.Colin Holmes, chief executive of Aviva’s UK general insurance business, said any measures which reduce the rising costs of insurance ‘will directly feed through to premiums’.Flora Hamilton, head of financial services for the Confederation of British Industry, added: ‘These proposals will be welcome news for the UK’s world-leading insurance industry.’last_img read more
