Lindiswa’s passion for law and community service started from a young age when her Grandmother was involved in an ‘Attempted rape’ case of a young girl in the Eastern Cape. She was awarded an African Scholars’ Fund Scholarship and later, an ASSET bursary which enabled her to proceed to higher education. Lindiswa obtained her Bachelors of Law (LL.B) degree from the University of the Western Cape where she became an active member of Black Lawyers’ Association (BLA-SC) and a mentee by the regional court Magistrates, Siviwe Yakhe and Cathy Page in 2017-2018 as part of South African Chapter of International Association of Women Judges (SAC-IAWJ), an organization that provides law students with court-room exposure and community service through orphanage visits and other activities. In fulfilling her aspiration to serve the community, Lindiswa is proud to have been one of the students, together with UWC Alumni Relations Office, to secure funding for hundreds of UWC students in food security in 2016. From all the Law Modules she did at university, Lindiswa enjoyed the Legal process, a final year elective which gave her practical exposure to Family law litigation, basic Legal Drafting and an opportunity to consult with clients at the University Law Clinic. Through her hard work and academic excellence, she became a member of the Law faculty’s Top Achievers’ program, honored with the Deans Merit Award in 2018 and was invited for an internationally recognized membership in the Golden Key International Society. Lindiswa is currently a Candidate attorney at STBB and serves as such in the Bonds (retail) department under Luthfeya Cassim. Lindiswa is open to learning as much as possible to advance her career in the legal field as general.

Thought of the week | Yintoni isikimu sokwahlula isabelo?

Beepropathi kunye nabanini bahlala befuna ingcebiso malunga nesikimu kwesona sithuba sokwabelana ngepropathi ukuze basisebenzise ngokubhekisele kuphuhliso. Ukukhethwa kweskimu kuxhomekeke kwiimfuno zomnini okanye umphuhlisi wepropathi. Enye yezi zikhetho zizikimu zokwahlula isabelo.

Isikimu sokwabelana ngesabelo sichazwa kuMthetho wokuLawulwa kwee-Bhloko zolwabelwano zeNombolo 59 ka-1980 (Share Block Control Act) ngokuthi “nasiphi na isikimu apho isabelo, ngayo nayiphi na indlela, sinika ilungelo okanye inzala ekusebenziseni ipropathi engenakushenxiswa”. Inkampani yezabelo ibamba eli lungelo lokufumana umhlaba nokuba ungabhalisa itayitile (i.e. ngokuthatha lo mhlaba uthathelwa ingqalelo kwaye ngaloo ndlela ube ngumnini womhlaba) okanye ngokuqeshisa umhlaba kumniniwo.

Xa sele ifunyenwe, amalungelo okusebenzisa ngokubhekisele kumhlaba anikezelwa yinkampani yeebhloko zezabelo kubanini bezabelo ngokutyikitya phantsi amalungelo okusebenzisa kwimemorandam yesivumelwano sokufakwa kwenkampani kunye nakwisivumelwano sokusetyenziswa ekungenwe phakathi kwenkampani yebhloko yokwabelana kunye nako konke oko abanini zabelo ngaphezulu okanye ngaphantsi amagama afanayo. Xa kumiselwa le nkqubo abanini bepropathi kunye nabaphuhlisi kufuneka bethathele ingqalelo oku kulandelayo:

  1. inkampani yeebhloko zesabelo ayinako ukukhupha izabelo ezinikezela ilungelo okanye inzala yokusebenzisa umhlaba okanye izakhiwo zikawonke-wonke ngaphambi kokuba zibandakanywe ngokungqinelana noMthetho weeNkampani ongu 71 ka-2008 njengenkampani yeebhloko zokwabelana (icandelo 5A Lolawulo lwamabhloko) kwaye;
  2. akukho mbuyekezo inokwamkelwa ngumvelisi, umnini okanye inkampani yeebhlokhi ezimalunga nesabelo Izabelo zenkampani ibhloka de kube isatifikethi sokugqitywa kwezakhiwo ezisisibonelelo senxalenye yesikimu sokwabelana ngesakhiwo sikhutshiwe ngumakhi wecandelo (icandelo 7(1) loMthetho wokuLawulwa kweXesha lePropathi (kwiXesha lePropathi). Enye yezinto ezingafakwanga kwicandelo 5A kukufumana imbuyekezo ngumqambi webhlowu ekwabiweni. Owona mthombo uphambili wemali wokuphuhliswa kweskimu sebhloko yolwabelo iya kuba yimali mboleko evela kwiziko lemali elikhuselwe yimali mboleko yomhlaba kunye nezakhiwo eziyinxalenye yesikimu sokwabelana ngesabelo. Inkampani yezabelo ibixhomekeke kwimirhumo evela kubanini-zabelo bayo ukwenza uxanduva lokuhlawula imali mboleko kwaye ke kubalulekile ukuba imemorandam yokubandakanya inyanzelise abaninizabelo ukuba benze igalelo layo ngenyanga kwinkampani ehlawula izabelo ukuze ilisebenzise wkuzikhukuleni kuanduva lwemali mboleko. (edited)
