SOURCE: I need a telkom technician to come to my new premises and give me some advice

These types of organizations tend to offer call center help by phone or chat. Alternatively, they offer self-help postings and forums. Organizations send local support people to a home for initial setup. And they may arrange an appointment if they can not fix a problem remotely. Problems are addressed in tiers and escalated to the next tier if no solution is found (ideally).

You can try getting information from the above means or going to a Telkom outlet and making a query. Reportedly, making a phone call to them will put you in a que for 25 to 45 minutes waiting to talk with someone. You might find chat access quicker and post your queries to them, indeed ask them just how to get someone to come to your home and about any fees associated. Here are some links that may prove helpful in your quest:

This is an emergency and I've logged a complain since last week. There is a Telkom Pole in our yard and about to fall on my roof.

First, as a word of caution - NEVER post your personal details onto a forum or site that can be publicly viewed. There are some genuinely horrible people in the world. Secondly, contact the Telkom and ask for their legals department and let them know you will sue for losses and damages when this pole falls onto your home - not if it falls. A legal threat normally moves them into action. Take names of customer service operators you speak to plus dates and times of the calls. If you do not get a timely response, contact your government department for consumer affairs or communications (whichever is prepared to take action under the circumstances) and notify them of your predicament. The Telkom runs risks of fines for breaches of contract and public safety.

Hi I have a broken landline that i have been trying to have repaired since november 2017. I also have a telkom line running over the farm of witch the poles are falling over. Can this line be removed?

First, I'm not a Telcom representative.
* check with your Telkom representative on current rules for pole cable repairs (on private property?)
* website;

*** following is for information only.***
* Wire cable? Old school. Contact your local rep and get a "Human" teller. You will probably be asked to change to a wireless system.
* TelKom will need to remove their cable (if it's not in use.) Most times they prefer to leave it as the next owner (or renter) may want to use it. They will probably charge for the removal.
* Beside high labor and lack of qualified wire, cable techs. there may be a long back log on this type of service. Here in Hawaii we still have cable (for phones) but most have converted to cable (TV) type phone/TV/Computer service package. It costs the same (Labor) to string up phone cable vs. coax wire. They make more money with the coax with more services.
* Jurisdiction for public, private, (commonwealth) lands as far as rules, codes, and who pays for it. (well, you do, but the will wait for charges and fees by other districts to be added up and wait for your approval or payment.
* Construction permits may be required. (for new poles)
* Here in Hawaii you also need Environmental Impact statement.
* Final, with upcoming equipment upgrades. The "wired" systems may become obsolete in 5-8 years with the upgrade "5G";

Are food warmers dangerous?

Domestic food warmers usually reach a high enough temperature to heat food but not high enough to kill bacteria, therefore creating an idea breeding ground for it.
For this reason it is best to have small quantities of food being served on food warmers at once. The best is to serve it quickly and remove it from the tray as fast as possible. After two hours that the food sits in the warmer it has to be thrown out.
Another danger could be the heated tray and hot water, in case there are childray round, that could get burnt.
