Hlaudi - our virtuoso entertainer without equal While others think introspectively, Hlaudi allows what comes to mind to hit the audience. He lets his thoughts flow, writes Madala Thepa. Group Executive Corporate Affairs of the SABC, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, can connect with his audience with the soothing indifference of a street chap. No fancy word codes. No word play, but a virtuosic facility with the English language that is straightforwardly hilarious. Hlaudi is the only person on the planet at this moment who can really crack you up - the first in the story of the national broadcaster to connect with his audience. Hlaudi is loved because he is not afraid to drive into oncoming traffic with his tongue. He talks bluntly and makes decisions, however unfavourable. At the occasion of the announcement of contracts for local TV and film productions, he promised a gift card of millions of rand and a ballet classes for adults beginners good 9 creative Pittsburgh dance parties for those looking for something new working relationship. He had free range on the microphone. He was at home, unchained and really unloading his thoughts. Hlaudi Motsoeneng speaks at the SABC in Auckland Park, Johannesburg.

Anger over decision to cut school bus services Bus services are being cut across the area Alfie’s a great sport as hetakes on triathlon challenge Future of school buses, particularly across Havant and Waterlooville, is now in doubt A DECISION to cut school bus services has come in for heavy criticism. Parents have hit out at Hampshire County Council after leaders have decided to cut £450,000 from its subsidy budget. Students may find it harder to get to school by bus now a subsidy has been reduced by Hampshire County Council The decision has left the future of several school bus services in doubt and one parent told The News to expect ‘chaos’ during the school run as car congestion increases. But the county council has defended itself, saying government cuts have left it with no option and that eligible children – such as those who get free school meals or cannot walk to school – will still get transport support. Karen Griffiths, 43, from Hayling Island, said the decision – to come into effect from September – was short-sighted. Her six-year-old daughter uses the bus to get to Mill Rythe School on Hayling Island – where there is already a parking scrum every morning and afternoon. ‘It’s going to make the parking worse. We need to be encouraging more people on to buses, not fewer. ‘People are now going to grow up thinking it’s okay to drive everywhere. ‘We need more people on buses, walking, or cycling. At Mill Rythe there’s going to be at least 20 more cars. It’s going to be chaos.’ Caren Austin-Lea, director of Emsworth and District Motor Services, said she believed there would be ‘uproar’ about the decision. She is considering having to withdraw services 646, 645, 635, 637 and 636.
