’n Spul onwettige grond gryppers het verteenwoordigers van AfriForum sowel ’n mediaspan Maandagoggend met petrolbomme gedreig op ’n grondeienaar se plaas net buite Pretoria. Die grond word tans onwettig beset en die plakkers het hul teengesit vir samesprekings en onderhoude met met die media. Die stuk grond ter sprake behoort aan ene dr. Motodi Maserumule en is geleë tussen Soshanguve en Onderstepoort. Na bewering het ongeveer 150 mense verlede Maandag onwettige sinkhuise begin oprig op die grond. Volgens Cameron het die plakkers laas week baie vinnig ’n sinkhuisie met die woord “Office” op opgerig en is tans besig om erwe teen R500 stuk aan lede van die publiek te verkoop. Cameron het ook te vertel dat Maserumule aanvanklik gesukkel het om ’n saak by die polisie te open. Met behulp van AfriForum kon hul daarin slaag om ’n saak van betreding by die polisie aanhangig maak verlede Woensdag. “Teen verlede week Vrydag was hier seker so 30 strukture opgerig, maar oor die na…

BLF leader, Andile Mngxitama invades double-storey mansion in Pretoria after noticing no one was living in it

The BLF decided to move into the big house after noticing no one was living in it. The High Court in Pretoria has refused to get involved on an urgent basis after a double-storey mansion in diplomat’s row in Brooklyn, Pretoria, was invaded by a group associated with Black First, Land First (BLF). The house “invaders”, who claim to be students, moved into the unoccupied thatched-roof house last month after getting a locksmith to open the door for them. When confronted, they allegedly said they could not afford accommodation and called their “lawyer”, who turned out to be BLF leader Andile Mngxitama, who is not an attorney. The executor in the estate of the house’s deceased owners, attorney Mike Potgieter, launched an urgent application to have the students evicted, saying they illegally gained access to the property and were trespassing. Judge Nelisa Mali, however, ruled that the application was not urgent and struck it off the roll. The main house on the property ha…

Activist group threatens to shut down Pretoria east after a previous memorandum was not taken seriously

The group claims that a previous memorandum handed to the Tshwane metro in March was not taken seriously. A Mamelodi activist group, which recently shut down Mamelodi municipal office services for several weeks, said they will do so again – if their demands are not met, reports Pretoria East Rekord. Oupa Mashiane, chairperson of the Mamelodi Concerned Residents for Service Delivery, made the remarks while handing over a memorandum to the metro at the local municipal offices on Monday morning. It was the second such memorandum, he said, and “the last”. Mashiane gave the metro seven working days to respond to demands. “This is a serious matter – the city of Tshwane must take our demands very seriously,” said Mashiane. Utility services MMC Darryl Moss received the memorandum on behalf of the Tshwane mayor. He promised to meet with the mayor the same afternoon to “personally hand over the memorandum to him” Mashiane claimed the metro did not take the group’s…

Bultfontein, PTA: Farm attack, man shot dead, elderly sister wounded

A violent farm attack took place on 26 August 2018, at 23:20 on a smallholding in Bultfontein, north of Pretoria. Two attackers neutralised the electric fence and lifted the gate and then broke the front door down. The man (74) was shot in the head outside the home and died on the scene and an elderly woman, the man’s sister, was shot in the abdominal area and was rushed to hospital. A third occupant of the house, a woman, apparently managed to raise the alarm on the emergency radio and the attackers fled. She was not injured. It seems that a firearm was stolen from the home during the attack. There have been no arrests and police are investigating. The incident was first reported on twitter by Ian Cameron of AfriForum.

Illegal land grabbers in Faerie Glen, Pretoria East became very hostile and threatened the community that they will burn down their homes and kill them

Dear Residents, I just got back from an attempted land grab of Municipal Property in Faerie Glen, Plaston Str. I arrived on site this afternoon with the community who wanted to meet with the 'owners' of the property after they started building and even put in an illegal water connection to this property, probably to make the construction seem more legitimate. Unfortunately for the land grabbers, the community is very well organized and aware of the fact that this property is a Municipal Road Reserve. I immediately contacted the MMC as well as the Chairperson of Roads & Transport from the site, who confirmed my position that no Municipal Land was sold to these 'owners'. I proceeded to disrupt this meeting, saying that we cannot engage with thugs grabbing land and, unless they can prove the contrary, they should leave - this prompted the land grabbers, who were very diplomatic up until then, to show their true colors and intent. The land grabbers became very h…

Gewilde Hartland program van lug af gehaal by Pretoria FM

Luisteraars van Pretoria FM, voorheen bekend as Radio Pretoria, het penregop gesit toe hulle oor die lug verneem dat een van die gewildste programme summier van die lug verwyder is. Skynbaar is ander ewe gewilde programme se tydsduur gehalveer, want “daar moet minder gepraat word” op die radio. Ander programme soos Fokus, waar veral Solidariteit ‘n groot rol speel en waar mense soos mnre. Flip Buys, Jaco Kleynhans en ander uit die Solidariteit dampkring, onbeperkte spreektyd het, word skynbaar nie geraak nie, en volgens die direksie voorsitter, Willie Spies, in ‘n antwoord op mnr. Bennie van Zyl se Facebook inskrywing, gaan Fokus nou Hartland se plek inneem. Die “minder praat” is dus skynbaar net van toepassing op sekere sprekers. Die gewilde program Hartland is skielik deur die nuwe uitvoerende bestuurder, mnr. Hennie Koortz, nek-om gedraai, en Marianne Breytenbach, uiters bekwame en geliefde aanbieder van die indiepte nuusagtergrond program, het die aankondiging …

FAK verwyder brondsbeeld van oudpres. Paul Kruger om te restoureer

Vandale het die graf van oudpres. Paul Kruger in die Heldeakker, Pretoria, geteiken en groot skade is aangerig deur die borsbeeld op sy graf te vernietig. Die Federasie van Afrikaanse Kultuurvereniginge (FAK) het Woensdagoggend verneem dat Kruger se graf beskadig is. Die FAK het ondersoek ingestel en bevestig die graf is op 11 Julie beskadig. Die borsbeeld was in ’n stoorkamer by die Heldeakker-begraafplaas en die FAK het die nodige toestemming bekom om dit te verwyder om dit te herstel. Die beeld is nou in veilige bewaring by die Voortrekkermonument.                             In 1995 het vandale ook Kruger se graf verniel en die oorspronklike marmerbeeld beskadig. Luidens ’n verklaring van die FAK het die groot grafblad in die proses ook seergekry – die krake lê steeds oor die Nederlandse boodskap: “Gestorven in Ballingschap te Clarens, in Switzerland.” Kruger is op 14 Julie 1904 in Clarens, Switserland, oorlede en op 16 Desember 1904 in die Heldeakker i…
