Bogus doctor arrested for issuing medical certificates to people applying for or renewing their driver’s licenses

A 50-yeard old man pretending to be a licensed medical practitioner was arrested by the Tshwane Metro Police (TMPD) at the Waltoo licensing department on Tuesday. It appears that the man was issuing medical certificates to individuals who applied for new or to renew their driver’s licenses. When questioned by the police, the man claimed to be a qualified doctor. TMPD officers got in touch with the health professional council of South Africa and verified that the so called medical practitioner was operating illegally, as his medical license was suspended. The bogus doctor was arrested and will appear in court soon. Read the original article on Rekord East.

South Africa’s first clear-water lagoon is Pretoria’s new ‘beach’

Landlocked Pretoria just got a new ‘beach’ thanks to South Africa’s first clear-water lagoon. It took Balwin Properties two years to make history in Sub-Saharan Africa, by constructing the first ‘beach’ of its kind. The Blyde, which officially opened on 8 September, is an exclusive housing estate in Pretoria East, which features 1.5-hectare The Blyde. Cost of construction While it’s unlikely to replace the seasonal exodus to coastal hotspots, Pretoria’s new ‘beach’ and residential complex provides an unusual oasis for residents of The Blyde. The project, which was spearheaded in partnership with Crystal Lagoons in 2016, cost an estimated R4.2 billion to construct and is only accessible to residents of The Blyde. While The Blyde’s lagoon is definitely the main attraction, other facilities include a restaurant, gym, spa, concierge, laundromat, and multi-purpose sports fields. Residents can enjoy swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing on the lagoon. Environme…

Booswigte steel kerkklok van NG kerk Wespoort in Danville

’n NG kerk in die weste van Pretoria se kerkklok is soek nadat booswigte verlede week baie moeite gedoen en swaar gedra het om dit te steel. Dié klok van die NG kerk Wespoort in Danville weeg maklik meer as 100 kg. “Ek hoop die mense wat die klok gesteel het, word gevang, sodat hulle dit weer kan terugsit. Ek sal graag wil sien hoe hulle dit gaan regkry,” sê Koos du Raan, die koster. Du Raan sê daar is Maandag die eerste keer opgemerk die klok hang nie meer in sy boog aan die bo-punt van die kerktoring nie. Die klok word net op spesiale geleenthede gelui, soos op begrafnisse en middernagdienste. ’n Ouderling het Maandag die klok se ketting in die binneplaas naby die kerkgebou sien lê. “Groot was ons verbasing toe ons omdraf en sien die klok is weg,” sê Du Raan. Die diewe het vermoedelik oor die kerk se agterste muur geklouter nadat hulle die lemmetjiesdraad in die hoek platgedruk het. Du Raan wys na die leer wat teen die agterkant van die kerkgebou is, w…
