Vision Tactical – 

Vision Tactical is aware of the many challenges, some unpredictable, that residents and businesses will be faced with in the months to come.

Hence, the company launched the latest version of its safety and security application for mobile phone users – “Vision Tactical Plus”. To better protect themselves, South Africans have resorted to using all manners of security measures, including their smartphones.

The digitally enhanced app provides Vision Tactical clients with an all in one safety and security solution at their fingertips.

The mobile app is linked to the Vision Tactical Control Room, sending real-time alerts where clients are able to request a range of emergency services.

Director of Vision Tactical, Yaseen Theba says that the latest version of the app will assist clients who find themselves in crisis situations by connecting them to an extensive network of emergency responders, as well as alerting selected friends and family.

“The app provides emergency services with vital information on the person in distress, such as their blood type, medical aid, private security company and next of kin. It then provides exact GPS co-ordinates of the user’s smartphone and directs us how to get there fastest.”

Theba says that Vision Tactical Plus provides an integrated personal safety & security solution, and that the app was re-developed to further enhance the fight against crime which has had devastating consequences for millions of people across various provinces in South Africa.

“Over the past few months, Vision Tactical has worked hand in hand with security and tech experts from around the country, to create a GO – TO smartphone application unlocking potential security solutions for where and when its most needed, in turn, bringing about stability.”

Theba adds that everyone dreams of a society that is at peace with itself, a society ready for a new and prosperous future.

“Through Vision Tactical Plus, this is a possibility.”

Independent Media’s marketing team negotiated with a supplier of boreholes, Drill Direct, to sponsor boreholes at Namo Primary School Trust Farm in Hammanskraal, Pretoria, and Lawley Secondary School in Lawley, Johannesburg for Mandela Day.

By Lesego Makgatho

Even Covid-19 did not stop Independent Media from doing its bit for Mandela Day this year.

Colleagues in each region rolled up their sleeves and participated in various activities in Durban, Cape Town, Pretoria and Johannesburg. All health and safety protocols were observed.

The marketing team packed 670 goody bags for health workers at Kalafong Hospital in Pretoria and Ramokonopi Community Health Centre in Katlehong on behalf of all the titles in Gauteng.

Health workers have been under tremendous strain and pressure and the goody bags were a small token of appreciation for their hard work and effort.

Various sponsors such as Roman’s Pizza, Omni Project, Vision Tactical, Venga Drinks and Lahers Silkscreen & Embroidery donated goods.

Speaking to The Star Mpho Nxumalo, a nurse from Ramokonopi, said Mandela Day always takes her back to the principle of ubuntu.

“It takes me back to the importance of giving back to the community. For once, we feel appreciated as healthcare workers – even if it’s just for one day. We genuinely appreciate this gesture.

“It’s been a challenging time for the health sector. We are just treating symptoms. If you live in a poor environment, it will be difficult for you to have a balanced diet, sanitise constantly. You are underprivileged, as opposed to middle-class South Africans who can afford to keep a balanced diet,” she said.

A message she has for all South Africans during this difficult time is to “wear a mask, constantly wash and sanitise your hands, as well as your surfaces”.

Responding to the plight of many schools without water in the peri-urban areas of Gauteng, Independent Media’s marketing team negotiated with a supplier of boreholes to sponsor boreholes at Namo Primary School Trust Farm in Hammanskraal, Pretoria, and Lawley Secondary School in Lawley, Johannesburg, both nominated by the Basic Education Department. The official handover of the boreholes took place on Friday.

The principal of Lawley Secondary School Sehanka Oupa, said their borehole came at the right time.

“For 10 years now we’ve been celebrating Mandela Day. Most companies would come to clean the school and then leave. A couple of months down the line, we’d have nothing to point at. What Independent Media has done means a lot to the school community. This borehole will not only benefit the learners and teachers but surely the community around the area,” Oupa said.

Speaking at the event was the chief executive of Drill Direct, Mohammed Ishmael. He said giving back to the communities was key.

“Covid-19 has come and changed the way we live. Mandela Day has always been special to everyone. It’s about giving back to the community and this is what we do as a company. We collaborated with Independent Media, asking them to identify a school we could assist.

“Water is something so precious. If you look at the protective measures of dealing with Covid-19, it is all based on the washing of hands and constant sanitisation. If people don’t have access to basic sanitisation, access to basic water, how do we expect them to live a healthy lifestyle?” Ishmael said.
