Leave a legacy behind: donations and bequests to Intaka Island

In addition to leaving their estates to loved ones, many people also want to leave a legacy by benefitting a favourite charity or non-profit organisation, such as the Intaka Island Environmental Trust. A charitable bequest – which is simply a distribution from your deceased estate to a charitable organisation by a bequest in your will – is an easy and effective way to do this.

Crash in canal causes major disaster

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A PLANNED AND STAGED DISASTER RISK MANAGEMENT EXERCISE

What started out as a typical, quiet Friday in Century City, turned into a major accident scene. On 23 October, Sipho Dlamini, was driving the aquatic weed harvester used to trim the water plants in the canals. “It was just like any other day, a morning on the water performing maintenance on the canals when it took a sudden turn for the worst. I was working on the Grand Canal behind Canal Walk Shopping Centre when the Intaka Island ferry started veering towards me. Before I could react, two canoeists came out of nowhere, and we all met with a big bang!”
