    He was the head of support services when

    he retired in March after serving the people

    of South Africa faithfully.

    He worked in various towns of the former

    Transkei until the former homeland police

    forcewas re-incorporated into theSouthAfri-

    can Police Services in 1995.

    Lt Colonel Xakwe was also a rugby player

    for the Comrades RFC, where he played wing

    and got the nickname of Speedo as hewas one

    of the fastest players on the field.

    During his farewell speech, Lt Colonel Xak-

    we warned SAPS members to be honest and

    work hand in glove with community mem-


    SAPS employees should enjoy their time

    during working hours as they spend most of

    their time at work, he said.

    THEDepartment of Trade and Industry (Dti)

    has published regulations for the removal of

    Adverse Credit Information, which as of

    April 2014 indicated that all adverse infor-

    mation of a consumer who had paid up their

    debt be removed from credit bureaux.

    Siphamandla Kumkani, Dti Director for

    Credit Law and Policy, said the regulation

    applies to people considered to be slow pay-

    ers, defaulters, those who have absconded,

    those who are not contactable, or accounts

    which had been handed over to lawyers for

    legal action. Credit bureaux are required to

    remove such information from the payment

    profile of the consumer.

    We encourage people to consult credit bu-

    reaux and credit providers to negotiate new

    payment terms and continue paying and

    honouring their debts, said Kumkani.

    In respect of paid-up judgements, the gov-

    ernment is saying that the credit bureaux

    are required, upon receipt of proof of settle-

    ment of the judgement, to remove that judge-

    ment from their records within seven days.

    In terms of the new regulations, consum-

    ers are no longer required to go to court to

    have their judgement removed and also to

    wait for more than five years to be cleared

    as per the previous legislation, he said.

    Dti Minister Rob Davies, said last month

    in Port St Johns, it had been noted that in

    several cases, bad credit records of consum-

    ers that have paid up their debt, still re-

    mained blacklisted by credit bureaux and

    that proper affordability assessments to ac-

    quire debt had not been done.

    Weneed to clear the slate aswe introduce

    a new system through the new bill. What we

    are saying is that adverse terminology thats

    applied to people must be removed as well

    as the names of all people that have paid up

    a judgement against them, said Minister


    Davies announced that, as of April 1, cred-

    it bureaux were prohibited from displaying

    or providing information that ought to have

    been removed in terms of the notice.

    Removal of credit info nowa reality
