Grafmonument van president Paul Kruger geskend

Die grafmonument van president Paul Kruger op die Heldeakker in Pretoria is beskadig. Die Vryburger is in kennis gestel dat die kopstuk afgebreek is deur onbekendes. Pretoria munisipaliteit het op die beskadigde beeld afgekom en die kopstuk in hulle stoor geberg. Dit is nog nie seker wat nou daarmee gaan gebeur nie, maar die verwagting is dat volksorganisasies sal inspring en seker maak dat die graf en standbeeld herstel sal word. Deur: Die Vryburger

Pretoria man robbed while ‘police stood idly by’

The policemen did not help because the crime was not part of their division. A businessman has accused the police of standing idly by while he was being robbed in the north of Pretoria, Pretoria North Rekord reports. Louis Eloff said this happened during a protest. He sells and distributes paint across Pretoria. Eloff said he was on his way to make a delivery in Hammanskraal when he ran in to a group of protesters along Soutpan Road in Soshanguve. “About 100 people ran towards my van and stopped it. They took all the buckets of paint on the trailer and got away.” Eloff said the stock was worth more than R25 000. “Two policemen stood there and watched. When I approached them to ask for help, they said it was not their division.” He said he did not lay charges because this would be a waste of time. “Why would I do that when I know that there are thousands of murders, rapes and armed robberies on their books that will never be solved?” Soshanguve police …

 Betogers versper paaie rondom Pretoria met klippe en buitebande

Betogers het Dinsdag talle besige paaie rondom Pretoria met klippe en buitebande versper. Sefako Makgatho- en Molefe Makinta-  rylaan in Mabopane, die M17 langs Soshanguve en die N4 in Atteridgeville is deur die gewelddadige betogings geraak. Daar word beweer dat die betoging in Atteridgeville met taxi-kwessies verband hou, terwyl die betogings in Mabopane en Ga-Rankuwa glo uit ʼn gebrek aan dienslewering spruit. Woordvoerder van die Tshwane-metropolisie, Isaac Mahamba,  het gesê metrobeamptes is besig om die geaffekteerde gebiede te monitor om te verseker dat inwoners nie verder ontwrig word nie. “Ons is bewus daarvan dat die meeste van die pendelaars in hierdie areas deur die betogings geraak is omdat sommige van die taxi’s en busmaatskappye hulle aan hierdie gebiede onttrek het, maar ons sal seker maak dat al die bedrywighede weer herstel word.” Metropolisiebeamptes moes vroeër rubberkoeëls afvuur om ʼn skare wat die M17 in Soshanguve versper het uitmekaar te jaag,…

EFF Thugs Chases White Shoppers Away At Centurion Shopping Mall

On Sunday morning, 27 May 2018, a resident from Centurion sent a frantic warning to fellow residents in Centurion warning them about EFF thugs chasing white shoppers away from a shopping mall. Apparently white privilege is the reason why white people are not allowed to visit a shopping mall. Here are a few questions: Since when is it white privilege to buy food or other essentials? Since when can the EFF decide where whites may or may not go? Why do EFF thugs and their akin always hunt in packs like hyenas? Clearly these thugs are low life cowards that target defenseless women and run in packs? Why does it seem that the EFF is the de facto racist enforcers on behalf of the government? What else are whites barred from: White people are barred from job opportunities through oppressive legislation like BEE and BBBEE. White people are barred from universities through restrictive quota enrollment programs. Whites are barred from sport teams through enforced quota sys…

Polisielede wat 'n bende transitorowers gejag het, het 'n Pretoriase huiseienaar doodgeskiet toe hulle glo op die verkeerde huis toegeslaan het, het TimesLive berig. Nóg mense, glo 'n polisieman wat wou help en drawwers, is na bewering gewond in die insident in Kilnerpark, volgens die berig in TimesLive. Alet van der Walt het vroeër berig die Valke het Donderdagaand saam met lede van die polisie se taakspan en misdaadintelligensie drie vermeende transitorowers in hegtenis geneem. Kapt. Ndivhuwo Mulamu, die Valke se woordvoerder, sê die drie is in hierdie stadium hul hoofverdagtes in verband met die onlangse vlaag van transitorooftogte. Die ondersoek is nog aan die gang, so hulle sal eers Vrydagoggend – wanneer hulle die verdagtes se identiteitsnommers bevestig het – kan sê of hulle aan enige ander misdade verbind word. Daar was die afgelope week vyf transitorooftogte in Gauteng, terwyl rowers ook Donderdagmiddag laat ’n geldwa buite Barberton in Mpumalanga beroof he…

Major copper cable theft bust in the City of Tshwane

An anonymous tip-off has led to a major cable theft bust valued at about R500 000 by a specialised unit of the Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) early this morning. Members of TMPD’s newly established Cable Theft Unit received information last night about a truck carrying stolen copper destined for a known second-hand scrap metal dealer west of the city. Five members of the unit, in a marked police car, flagged down the truck on Van Der Hoff Road, a few metres from its destination. When the driver saw the police, he made a quick U-turn and sped off. The police gave chase and forced the truck off the road. When police asked the driver what was in the back of the truck, he said he was delivering a pile of rubbish to a scrap metal dealer. Upon inspection of the truck, police made a startling discovery of used and new copper cables belonging to the City with a street value of R500 000 covered under a pile of rubbish. The cables had been stolen from the vandalised Suid…

Plans to move Parliament from Cape Town to Pretoria are back on the agenda

Plans to move Parliament from Cape Town to Pretoria are back on the agenda. National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete says that work on the study will start this month and that she expects a report in six months time. A consulting firm has been contracted to carry out a feasibility study on the impact of its relocation. National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete says that work on the study will start this month and that she expects a report in six months time. She was speaking while tabling Parliament’s budget on Tuesday. The decision to base Parliament in Cape Town dates back to the formation of the Union of South Africa in 1910, when the seat of government became Pretoria and Bloemfontein the judicial capital. Mbete says consulting firm Pamoja (Pty) Ltd will carry out the latest study on the feasibility of moving Parliament to Pretoria. Senior ANC MP Vincent Smith says the costs of two capitals can’t be justified. The apartheid arrangement that arises from ha…

Msimanga leads crime clean-up campaign in Sunnyside

Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga this morning led a crime clean-up campaign in Sunnyside alongside the Tshwane Metro police, emergency services and municipal water and electricity technicians. The raid meant to tackle drug dealings, illegal electricity and water connections, by-law enforcement and the reclaiming of the municipality's buildings. Msimanga pointed out several illegal power connections and meter tempering at Nuweveld building on Troy Street as he inspected the municipal flat. He said the building owed the City at least R2 million in rates alone and it was about time it complied. During the raid, Msimanga introduced himself to several tenants and asked to speak to caretakers of buildings. This he said was because the City was determined to eradicate all criminal activities in the city. The mayor also visited Nix Accommodation on Rissik Street near Unisa in Sunnyside to inspect the building for possible illegal connections. The metro police officers said …

EFF: As die Stad Tshwane nie die standbeeld van Paul Kruger van Kerkplein af verwyder nie,sal ons dit doen

“Ons doen ’n belangrike beroep op die Stad Tshwane, as hoofstad van die land, om Madikizela-Mandela te vereer. Sy het ’n enorme bydrae tot die land gelewer en word nie genoeg daarvoor vereer nie,” het Mabogoane Donderdag by navraag gesê. Hy sê die EFF het die Tshwane-metro twee opsies gegee: Kruger se standbeeld word óf verskuif na ’n ander plek, of word heeltemal gesloop. “Ons vra nog altyd dat die standbeeld verwyder word. Dit is ’n belediging vir swart mense. Indien die stad dit nie verwyder nie, sal ons dit self doen, ons het dit al voorheen gedoen.” Mabogoane sê hulle het in die stadium nie ’n sperdatum vir die stad om die standbeeld te verwyder nie, maar hulle is ernstig oor die saak. Hy sê dit is deel van die EFF se mandaat om ontslae te raak van alle simbole en standbeelde wat aan apartheid gekoppel is. Intussen het die VF Plus in ’n verklaring gesê hy distansieer hom van die EFF se versoek dat die standbeeld van Kruger vervang moet word met dié van Madik…
