Wanneer jy die nodige aandag wil verkry van mense en instansies, trek net jou klere uit – Vrou betoog in skrapse klere voor Uniegebou omdat Unisa en die polisie haar mishandel

’n Skraps geklede vrou wat voor die Uniegebou in Pretoria betoog het, is Woensdagoggend in hegtenis geneem. Gugu Ncube sê sy het betoog omdat Unisa en die polisie haar mishandel het. Haar baas by ’n sentrum wat voorheen deur Unisa geborg is, het volgens haar gevra vir seks as sy haar werk wil behou. Sy sê bewerings dat sy bedank het, is vals. “Ek wil hê Unisa se bestuur moet my bedankingsbrief wat hulle beweer ek geskryf het, aan die hele land, die Thuma-stigting, die kommissie vir geslagsgelykheid en ander belanghebbendes wys.” Volgens haar het sy in haar broekie en ’n klein toppie betoog omdat sy “niks meer het om te beskerm nie”. “Naaktheid is ’n teken dat ek van my waardigheid ontneem is. My waardigheid is weg.” Gugu Ncube Gugu Ncube betoog voor die Uniegebou voordat die polisie haar in hegtenis geneem het. Ncube wil hê pres. Cyril Ramaphosa moet kennis neem van die beweerde mishandeling. Volgens haar is sy deur die polisie mishandel toe sy haar b…

Polisie se misdaad rekord styg – Twee Metropolisie lede van Pretoria op heterdaad betrap met ’n gesteelde voertuig in hul besit

Twee lede van die Pretoriase Metro Polisie is in hegtenis geneem nadat ‘n gesteelde voertuig in hul besit gevind is. Die voertuig wat in Eldoraigne gesteel is, is opgemerk by ‘n woning in Philip Nel Park. Die eienaar van die huis, ‘n vroulike lid van die Metropolisie is gearresteer en na verdere ondersoek is nog twee verdagtes aangekeer. Die een is getroud met die vroulike konstabel en word tans opgelei deur die Metro Polisie. Dit blyk dat die polisie se misdaad rekord aan die styg is as gelet word op die groot aantal voorvalle waarby beamptes betrokke was in die afgelope maande.

Stadsraad van Pretoria gaan in die volgende 4 maande 13,000 voorafbetaalde kragmeters vervang na bevind is dat PEU Capital Partners se meters nie geldig is

Die stadsraad van Pretoria wil die omstrede elektriese meters vervang, en daarvoor het hulle glo vier maande tyd om 13,000 te vervang. Die 13,000 vooruitbetaal meters moet ingevolge ’n hofbeslissing vervang word omdat die meter met ’n ongeldige kontrak ingesit is en glo ook onwettige toestelle is. Talle werkers moet nou deur sekere gebiede se geboue beweeg om te kyk of die meters in die geboue wettig is, aangesien die PEU Capital Partners se meters nie geldig is nie. Dit beteken glo dat die multi-miljard se daaglikse betalings wat die stad aan PEU maak in terme van die kontrak, word as onbekostigbaar beskou en sal ook tot ’n einde kom. Daar bestaan onduidelikheid wie verantwoordelik gehou word vir die koste om die meters te vervang, en of dit maar weer die onskuldige verbruiker is watt moet opdok.

Frail and elderly patients at Huis Davidtz Retirement Home take on role of nurses after yet another service disruption at the home

Pretoria - The frail and elderly patients at Huis Davidtz Retirement Home assumed the role of nurses, while they cleaned dishes and swept the floor, after yet another service disruption at the home. Some did not receive their daily chronic medication, while others were cleaned and fed late. One patient who has arthritis lay with a urine filled and unchanged diaper, which further gave the room a strong scent. The person was one of many patients at the troubled centre in the CBD, who have been left unattended while staff, who have worked there for decades without work contracts, went on strike. The issue of contracts date back to two decades ago with staff claiming they have worked at the home for more than 20 years without employment contracts. They also made allegations of racism, the abuse of patients by management, being underpaid, and more. In August, disgruntled nurses, volunteers, chefs and cleaners went on a three-day strike, led by the EFF with police k…

Nuwe burgemeester van Tshwane kanselleer GladAfrica-kontrak – firma wat tender onregmatig ontvang het was onder meer daarvoor verantwoordelik om dienslewering te monitor

Die metroraad in Tshwane het met die ingenieursfirma GladAfrica ooreengekom om hul omstrede multimijoenrandkontrak te beëindig. Stevens Mokgalapa, uitvoerende burgemeester van die Tshwane-metro, het dié aankondiging Maandag op 'n mediakonferensie in Tshwane-huis in Pretoria gemaak. Mokgalapa is vroeër die maand as die stad se nuwe burgemeester aangewys. Die ouditeur-generaal het bevind dat die tender wat in November 2017 aan GladAfrica toegeken is, onreëlmatig was. Hy het ook bevind dat die stadsbestuurder, dr. Moeketsi Mosola, met die toekenning van die tender die Wet op die Bestuur van Munisipale Finansies oortree het. Werksaamhede tussen GladAfrica en die munisipaliteit sal op 30 Junie tot 'n einde kom. "Ons gee hulle kans om die werk waarvoor ons hulle reeds betaal het, klaar te maak," sê Mokgalapa. "GladAfrica was besorg oor hul reputasie wat weens die sage skade lei en was bereid om die kontrak te kanselleer. Daar is nie noodwendig iets fout met die w…

As we reported before, land claims in suburban areas are becoming the norm. The stark reality is that people should realize that these land claims are a far greater threat than what they initially thought. Front National attended a meeting on 19 February 2019, held by Afriforum at Leriba Lodge, pertaining to the pending land claim in Centurion. The land claim stretches over 4000 hectares and it effects more than 2000 households. This includes areas such as: Zwartkop, Doornkloof, Rooihuiskraal, Olievenhoutbosch, Hoekplaats, Trigaardspoort, The Reeds, Brakfontein, Heuweloord, Louwlardia, Kosmosdal and Midstream. Some properties have up to seven claims on the same property and each claim must be dealt with individually. Alarmingly the land claim also includes Laerskool Rooihuiskraal (with 2000 Afrikaans pupils) and a piece of the Danie Joubert N1 highway. The total value of all the property affected is estimated at over R4Billion. The attendance was huge and more than 1000 peop…

SAPS is looking the other way as no active steps are being taken to prevent the wave of crime that is ravishing parts of Kameeldrift, East in Pretoria

Despite a wave of crime that ravages Kameeldrift East in Pretoria, it seems that the SAPS is simply looking the other way, as no active steps are being taken to provide badly needed relief for this agricultural community. AfriForum launched several actions to support this besieged area in its battle to call the SAPS to account to ensure that the local police station functions properly to effectively help the community. Among other, AfriForum launched a court application to compel the community to send reservists for the prescribed training to enable them to supplement the understaffed police station. AfriForum also monitors the investigation of various cases, among them that of former Springbok Naka Drotské, who was injured during a farm attack on his brother’s smallholding. Another is that of Manie Entres, whose wife was murdered in his presence. In both cases, the SAPS investigative abilities were shocking. AfriForum has already voiced its dissatisfaction in a lette…

Die Universiteit van Pretoria tans besig om Afrikaans as die amptelike onderrigtaal by al sy kampusse en koshuise uit te faseer. Die universiteit sal nou slegs Engels as primêre taal van kommunikasie en administrasie gebruik. Rikus Delport, woordvoerder van die Universiteit, het gesê die beleid is in 2016 deur die universiteit se raad en senaat aangeneem ná 'n uitgebreide konsultasieproses en aanbevelings van alle belanghebbende partye. "Die verandering in beleid is daarop gemik om maatskaplike samehorigheid te fasiliteer en die universiteit sal steeds meertaligheid omhels en aanmoedig om eenheid te bevorder en gelyke geleenthede vir sprekers van alle Suid-Afrikaanse tale te bied," het hy gesê. Delport het gesê die besluit van die onderskeie belangegroepe is deur die bevindings ingelig dat die persentasie studente wat hul huistaal as Afrikaans aangemeld het, tussen 1992 en 2015 van 85% tot 30% afgeneem het. "In 2016 het ongeveer 18% van die studente 'n voorkeur v…
