    The bank accepted it on their behalf. I have no idea what the legal position is.

    Next time, lets all agree to use the technology at our disposal, log into that internet banking, click click clickity click and it done!

    On the note of fines,

    Does the 32-day 50% discount period still apply? I got a R600 fine for driving (not riding) at 78km/h in a 60km/h zone.. I thought it was an 80km/h zone.
    I don't want to leave the fine unpaid then it turns into a 1200 fine.... I have a feeling there was no discount on this one.

    Now that is a pigeon amongst the doves for real. Will be interesting to get a letter from the prosecutor telling me that they have rejected my payment and that they will refund me so I may "settle it as follows".

    The maximum amounts that may be paid using coins are as follows:


    • fifty rand, where coin of the denomination of one rand or higher are so tendered;
    • five rand, where coin of denominations of ten cents up to and including fifty cents are so tendered;
    • fifty cents, where coin of the denomination of five cents or less are so tendered.

    Very sneaky, Mr Ntjamme!
    Kudos for testing the system. Let us know if we must bring you a cake with a jail key inside.
    I don't think the others 'got' what you were reporting.

    Let us know what the bean counters say! Don't expect them to be happy. And MmaBongi may not let you out of the house again!
