DIARY: 21 September with Zola

DIARY: 21 September with Zola


It’s Wednesday the 21st of September and we still have Zola 7 in the studio, we are hoping today’s show will be a good as the ones from Monday and Tuesday.

Coming to “What Now”, the #FeesMustFall drama continues at the Wits University, with students not hearing it as far as the proposed fee increase for next year. This after Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande announced that there would be an 8% increase in the varsity fees for 2017. Trending on the social media streets was #Brangelina.

Now for the past decade or so, Brad Bitt and Angelina Jolie have been the poster celebrity couple. The news that they have filed for divorce sent shock waves around the world, much to the disappointment of many of their fans. Speaking of fans, the Jennifer Aniston corner is having the time of their lives right now. You’ll remember the much publicised break-up between Brad and Jennifer all those years ago, when the former was alleged to have cheated with the Friends star.

We continued the show and spoke with a couple of semi-finalists for the wedding competition that VUMA FM is running. The winner will be announced in the next few days and will win R400 000 towards their wedding costs.

In the second hour of the show Azizzar had some insight for those of us who don’t have Wills. Many people, like myself thought that to have a will you need to have substantial money or possessions to your name, but today we found out that that is not the case.

She spoke to Janine Bredenkamp, who is an attorney and administrator of deceased estates at J.Bredenkamp Attorneys Inc. Janine gave us a breakdown of the purpose of a Will; When you can make a Will; how to set up a Will, and the risks of not having one. So, basically anyone who has any sort of possession to their name can have a Will and probably needs to have one.

The business term of today was ‘Risk Management’. The identification, analysis, assessment, control, and avoidance, minimization, or elimination of unacceptable risks.  An organization may use risk assumption, risk avoidance, risk retention, risk transfer, or any other strategy (or combination of strategies) in proper management of future events.

As always, the music on the show is always good, and we try by all means to get you to your work place pumped up for the day. We hope that’s what we did today.
