Employment in the formal non-agricultural business sector increased
by 99,000 or 1.4% to 7.177 million people between the quarters ended
June 2005 and September 2005. This according to statistics released
by the September 2005 Quarterly Employment Statistics (QES) survey

With most of our readers currently away for the festive season
we thought it best to bring the "holiday" to those that
are still at home therefore there was no better place to focus on
this week than Hibberdene, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. Mtwalume
(Hibberdene) is a small village situated on the South Coast of Natal
approximately 87 kms south of Durban. It is mainly a holiday and
pleasure fishing village. The general appearance of the village
is that of a rural wooded environment, with many indigenous flora
and fauna. The main feature is the Mtwalume River which forms a
beautiful lagoon where it enters the sea. (www.places.co.za)
