Business Owner can't leave country

30 June 2014, 19:45
Hi there, 
I am from New Zealand and own a wedding photography business in South Africa with my husband. We have booked and paid for a holiday in Mozambique in July. I have now just found out that i cannot leave the country, or will face being banned from returning to my home and business.

We also often get enquiries for Zimbabwe. What happens if we book an international wedding? And where does that leave the rest of our clients if i cant return to South Africa? Will I then be banned from returning from a business trip? I still don't know what to do about leaving in July.

We have already paid for our trip, and i see that the Cape Town high courts recently said that 2 other people could return to South Africa to their spouses after being banned, but where does that leave the rest of us?

They haven't made directive 9 illegal, and now apparently I cant leave the country until my visa arrives unless i want to risk being banned-and if i get banned our business will go down the tubes.

I handed my visa in in February 2014, and last time it took 12 months.

My question to these young leaders: Are they satisfied that their approach to leadership, their rhetoric, the thoughts and feelings they express, are placing them on the path to justice, joy and freedom which they wish to attain? Read more...

Men Are Trash: the movement

If you’re a man you’re probably reading this article because the title rubbed you off the wrong way. I want to start by saying MEN ARE TRASH – I used caps lock to seem extra intimidating because you know, I’m a woman ( joke).  Read more...

In the mid 1990s the people who approached me most often for advice, counsel and coaching were white males. Towards 2000 this changed and the majority were women, often black women, occupying mid to senior management positions.  Read more...

Dear Vanessa: who is African?

Sorry to rain on your parade. I won’t take much of your time. I’m sure you have more important things to muse over than some silly drivel from a black man. Now I’m going to ask a few questions that might just sound plain silly – or unwise. That shouldn’t surprise you, seeing that you think my type is reckless anyway. Read more...
