Two dead in rural Douglasdale security complex gunfight

Douglasdale residents plan anti-crime protest meeting at police station, Sat. September 19 at 9:30am

  • Upmarket smallholders wake up to sounds of fierce gun-fight - two suspects dead, two injured

2009-09-01 Johannesburg –The high-security rural housing complex Waterford Estate at Farmall/Douglasdale/Bloubosrand north of Randburg erupted in a wild-west gunfight between cops and robbers early on Tuesday morning, and during which two suspects were shot dead and two seriously injured. Residents were awakened by the gun-shots in the early-morning hours. Police suspect the gang of amongst others, murdering local young mom Tracey-Leigh Frankish of Farmall in a series of armed attacks on local families.

The crime rate in this high-income smallholdings area  north of Randburg is truly horrendous – despite a very active police-community patrolling unit which patrols the area 24/7, with many local residents actively engaged in carrying out security checks during their waking hours. View the crime lists from the police-community forum:http://www.rac.org.za/forum/viewforum.php?f=15

The gang is linked to at least five various armed attacks in high-security complexes in the Bloubosrand/Douglasdale region, and were being sought by police for the past ten days, said police inspector Balan Muthan.

Frankish Tracey-Leigh murdered Farmall Aug 18 2009 smallholding Four suspects climbed through the electrified fencing around the upmarket Waterford Estate security complex early on Tuesday-morning, he said, triggering the alarm. “The Douglasdale counter-murder police task team was rushed to the scene, and a gunfight broke out between the police and the gang, ‘ said Muthan.

“These gangsters break into security complexes by climbing the walls and even through the electrified fencing, breaking in while their victims are asleep. They hold people at gunpoint while plundering the homes, and have shot victims’ said Muthan.

The gang is linked to the murder of a otherwise unidentified 33-year-old woman in the region, he said, (possibly Tracy-Leigh Frankish, murdered in her home in Farmall, pictured left).  http://www.nuus24.com/Content/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/1479/bec3256b814243f0b0b40e2f7b40fc2f/01-09-2009%2009-09/Skietgeveg_in_woonkompleks

Protest meeting planned

Local ward councillor John Mendelsohn is up in arms, – actively drumming up support for a protest gathering outside Douglasdale police station on Saturday 19 September at 9:30am. He said ( tel 82 578 0418 ) that ‘within the space of just two weeks, violent incidents of crime have affected me.

“ I have myself been the victim of a garage shop robbery; my brother, his wife and two friends have been victims of a driveway robbery at his home; a mother of two young children has been murdered in cold blood outside a garage in Witkoppen Road; and I attended the exceptionally sad and emotional memorial service for Tracy-Leigh Frankish who was murdered in her home in Farmall.

The Government must protect the lives and property of its residents:

“ I now question the ability of our Government to fulfil the most basic obligations of an organised state. A state owes two essential obligations to its citizens and residents… namely, to secure its borders and to protect the lives and property of its residents.

“Does our Government not know its obligations? It seems not, because in each instance our Government has failed us.

“Our border with Zimbabwe is one in name only, except that it is mainly one way traffic. As for protecting its residents, well, do the facts not speak for themselves? Have we not perhaps descended so far down a spiral that we have become a semi-failed state? I do hope not, but I can blame no one who believes this to be the case.

“The Zimbabwe border has to be effectively secured, and the Official Opposition is pressing this issue in Parliament as matter of urgency.

“As for protecting our lives and properties, I propose a demonstration at our local Police Station at Douglasdale. I shall be organising a date and time and shall be mobilising residents and all other interested people in the City to participate. It is time for the police to shake up their present approach to crime prevention and to utilise their resources in far more intelligent and innovative ways. Above all, it is time for the police to see our anger and to react appropriately.

    Four teen boys left orphaned by double ‘love-triangle’ shooting

    Welkom Gymnasium shooting Rudolph Cloete behind coroner van taking two dead teachings Tom de Wet Volksblad pic 2009-09-01 Tom de Wet of Volksblad newspaper reports from Welkom in the Free State that two Afrikaner teachers at the well-known Welkom Gymnasium High School died from gunshot wounds after ‘months of grief over a love-triangle’.

    Dead are deputy headmaster Lieb Liebenberg, 53, found lying shot to death on his stomach behind his desk. He ‘probably had several gun-shot wounds’,  writes De Wet.

    Picture: Tom de Wet photographed the distraught headmaster Rudolph Cloete behind the coroner’s van which picked up the bodies of the two dead teachers.

    The body of teacher Jaco Stiglingh (51), was found with a gunshot wound through the mouth in front of Liebenberg’s desk. His office was locked and barred from the inside. Police believe that the shooting occurred at about 6.40am during assembly. Headmaster Rudolph Cloete said it was not unusual for the two educators to be away from assembly as both had ‘a wide range of duties’. Cloete was alerted that there may be a problem when a teacher who had to fetch a letter from Liebenberg’s office, couldn’t open the door. He went to the office window at around 7;25am he said – and saw the two bodies inside. The alerted police and ambulance arrived at 7:40am and the office door was broken open with a tyre-iron. The journalist reported claims circulating at the school that Liebenberg, who had divorced his wife Edith several months earlier, had a ‘relationship with a married woman’, while Stighlingh’s wife Ita – former terrain-manager at the school, apparently had left the marital home just two days earlier, on Sunday. The late Mr Liebenberg used to report for Volksblad ‘s sports pages from Welkom. Cloete said the two men ‘worked together well as colleagues and there never were any outward signs of tension or discomfort between the two men. It’s a tragedy and we deeply sympathise with the families of both men,’ he said. Liebenberg is survived by his ex-wife and sons Frikkie and Johan; Stiglingh is survived by his wife and sons Terry and Meyer. sê die twee mans het as kollegas goed saamgewerk en daar was nooit enige tekens van spanning of ongemak tussen hulle nie. “Dit is ’n tragedie en ons het simpatie met albei onderwysers se families en almal betrokke.”

    Liebenberg word benewens sy gewese vrou oorleef deur twee seuns, Frikkie en Johan, en Stiglingh word benewens sy vrou ook deur twee seuns, Terry en Meyer, oorleef. http://www.volksblad.com/Content/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/2114/bc0de6a1347940539827040efe04f027/01-09-2009-01-05/Doodskote_by_skool_skok

    Afrikaner pensioner gunned down by ‘laughing attacker’

     

    ‘Lekker!*’ said the black gunman, laughing loudly after shooting down the unarmed, 62-year-old August Schäfer, 62, of Villieria, Pretoria

     

    Schäfer Hannetjie husband shot in front of her by racist attackers Spt12009  2009-09-01 Virginia Keppler of Beeld newspaper reports that 62-year-old August Schäfer was preparing fruit jam on the back porch of his Villieria home in Pretoria when at least three black armed robbers grabbed him – and then went inside to attack his wife Hannetjie, also 62.

    His wife was resting in the bedroom of their live-in grandson Stanley Naudé (23), and who told Beeld that his grandmom had tearfully pleaded with the men not to shoot her husband.

    “That didn’t stop them because the very next moment they shot him right before my eyes. I still saw the blue flames shooting from the gun,’ she told Beeld, tears streaming down her face. The shottist shouted ‘lekker’ and laughed loudly, the family reports. The attackers then left the traumatised family – taking only Mrs Schäfers valueless handbag containing her driver’s license, identity document and bank card – although the family was so traumatised that the entire house could have been  emptied out of loot. 

    Their son Cecil who showed up shortly thereafter, said his mom tried to call the emergency 10111 number six times but failed to get a reply. A neighbouring woman then started trying to reach the police – and they finally showed up 45 minutes later, after the attackers were long gone.

    The Naudé men tried to stabilise the injured old Afrikaner – turning him on his side so that the blood streaming from his mouth, wouldn’t choke him. “After that I kept trying to keep him awake, said the traumatised grandson. “I could feel how my oupa’s hands got cold.’ He was rushed to a local hospital where he is described as being in ‘serious condition’. He was injured on the left side, and bullets penetrated hia right hipbone and his intestines.

    Two jewellery shops robbed simultaneously in Pretoria east

    2009-08-31 Fanie van Rooyen of Beeld newspaper reports that another two upmarket jewellery shops in malls were robbed nearly simultaneously on Saturday-morning within just 15 minutes of each other – at Garsfontein and Menlyn Park in eastern Pretoria. The first attack occurred at 9:15 am at the Roma Gioielli jewellers in Woodlands Boulevard Mall at Garsfontein, (romagold@lantic.net) when six armed black men showed up in a white vehicle. One, the driver, remained inside the vehicle, the other five strolled into the jewellery shop, ordered customers to lie down on the floor, while personnel were forced to empty out the jewellery displays and –drawers into plastic shopping bags. Then they casually strolled out again. Fifteen minutes later, the NWJ jewellers in Menlyn Park were targetted very much with the same modus operandus. (Telephone: 012 368 1178)

    42 armed robberies at malls in past two months:

    A recent report by the Consumer Goods Council of SA said there were 25 armed robberies at shopping centres countrywide and 15 in August in Gauteng province. Michael Broughton of the CGCSA said two-thirds of all these shopping centre attacks, which are carried out by very large, well-organised and heavily-armed gangs, occur in Gauteng province. With these latest two attacks, it brings the reported total of shopping mall attacks to 42 within a two-month period. http://www.cgcsa.co.za/

    White man gets refugee status in Canada because of black attacks in South Africa

    Huntley Brandon persecuted white SA granted asylum in Canada Brandon Huntley, 31, was attacked seven times, cursed as a ‘white dog’ and a ‘settler’ during stabbings:

    Donna Casey, a journalist at SunMedia in Ottawa, Canada reports (contact: donna.casey@sunmedia.ca)

    August 31 2009 -- White South African Brandon Huntley, 31, was granted refugee status in Canada, after an immigration board panel ruled that he, as a white man, would be persecuted if he returned home to South Africa, Donna Casey writes in the Ottawa Sun.

    • This is the first time a white South African has been granted refugee status in Canada claiming persecution from black South Africans, she writes.

    (My comment) White South Africans have been given permanent refuge in Canada before however – but not for racial reasons. Several Afrikaner family members were granted asylum after proving that they  suffer very debilitating medical problems due their genital oversensitivy to sunlight (porphyria). The Viviers family settled in Prince Rupert, a town with very few  sunlight hours a year. Many Afrikaner families suffer from this congenital condition. http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/westcoastnews/story.html?id=fe203437-0eac-432b-9a7e-b4042598a366

    However, Brandon Huntley, 31, presented "clear and convincing proof of the state's inability or unwillingness to protect him", the Canadian immigration and refugee board panel ruled last Thursday.

    • Claimant would ‘stand out like a sore thumb” (in South Africa).

    "I find that the claimant would stand out like a 'sore thumb' due to his colour in any part of the country,” tribunal panel chair William Davis said.

    Attacked seven times – stabbed three times

    Huntley's "subjective fear of persecution remained constant and consistent" up to the time he made his refugee claim, Davis noted.

    The Canadian newspaper reported that Huntley - who grew up in Mowbray, Cape Town - had been attacked seven times by black South Africans and stabbed three times. He said he was called a "white dog" and a "settler" during these attacks.

    "There's a hatred of what we (whites) did to them and it's all about the colour of your skin," Huntley reportedly said.
    He first went to Canada on a six-month work permit in 2004, and returned in 2005. He stayed on illegally and made a refugee claim in April 2008, the Ottawa Sun reported.

    “If you have got the money, you can protect yourself,” Huntley said of the armed security guards wealthy white South Africans hire to protect themselves.

    • Huntley’s “subjective fear of persecution remained constant and consistent” up to the time he made his refugee claim, Davis noted in his decision on Huntley’s claim.

    Sister of Huntley’s South African lawyer testified on his behalf:

    The decision also took into account testimony by Laura Kaplan, 41, the sister of Huntley’s lawyer, who emigrated to Canada last year from her native South Africa.

    • Laura Kaplan testified about being threatened by armed black South Africans and the torture of her brother Robert in 1997 when a gang of black men broke into his house, tortured him for eight hours, shot him three times and left him for dead.

    His solicitor, barrister Russell Kaplan, told Beeld newspaper on August 31 2009 that they had in addition to the testimony, also submitted many articles and crime reports from South African newspapers, dealing with the ‘ crime problem’ , to underscore their application.

    “Huntley) referred three or four times during his testimony to the idea ‘payback from way back’. Basically the idea that now, it’s the black people’s turn (to suppress), whereas beforehand, it had been white people’s turn…’ said Kaplan.

    The barrister said that Huntley was very happy with the ruling. “He feels wonderful. He was really terrified of returning to South Africa,’ he told Beeld. http://www.beeld.co.za

    He appears before the Refugee Protection Division, Immigration Division and Immigration Appeal Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board and before the Trial Division in the Federal Court of Canada.

    SA government ‘indifferent or unable’ to protect white South Africans:

    The Immigration Board chairman, Davis also had scathing remarks for the SA government in his summary, noting that “the evidence of Huntley and Laura Kaplan “show a picture of indifference and inability or unwillingness” of the South African government to protect “white South Africans from persecution by African South Africans.” donna.casey@sunmedia.ca http://www.ottawasun.com/news/ottawa/2009/08/28/10659546.html

    The South African government is not well-pleased – attacking the Canadian decision as ‘racist.’

    The ruling has however struck a chord with many whites inside South Africa, with many saying that the Government has done nothing to stop a wave of attacks on white farmers since 1994 – during which more than 3,060 farmers their relatives and workers have been killed. Whites also point out that the violent-crime rate is much worse than is currently being published -- as the government also is deliberately failing to make the latest public crime statistics in the hope of improving the country’s image ahead of the 2010 soccer World Cup.

    AfriForum, a Afrikaner civil rights organisation, noted that there had been a massive emigration of whites from the country, with a huge brain drain since the end of apartheid in 1994, mainly contributed to the huge crime wave which followed in its wake.

    AfriForum asked the Home Affairs minister to appoint a task team to probe the reasons for emigration of such minority communities: Kanadese vlugtelingstatus-beslissing roep om besinning

    A recent report by the South African Institute on Race Relations also said that up to the end of 2007, some 800,000 whites out of a population of four million had left the country since 1994. As a comparison with a country in a very similar situation, neighbouring Zimbabwe, of the original 250,000 whites living there 25 years ago,  25,000 still remained by 2008, despite that country’s massive socio-economic problems and the many armed attacks and land-confiscations targetting white agriculturalists in that country, the violent-crime rate is much less in Zimbabwe than it is in South Africa.

  • All white dogs will be killed – tsunami of hate-speech in SA

     

    Hate-speech against whites by ANC-officials reaches boiling point

    Earlier this year, the Freedom Front Plus opposition party laid charges with the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) against two Odendaalsrus police officers for allegedly calling a farmer a "white dog". In a letter to the SAHRC, FF Plus spokesman Pieter Groenewald referred to a recent Bloemfontein newspaper report alleging that SA Police Service Constables Mokwena and Mafabatho of the Odendaalsrus Police Station had called a farmer a "white dog" and told him that  "all white dogs in South Africa will be killed".  This is not an isolated incident – a tsunami of anti-white hate-speech and anti-white racist hate-crimes has been sweeping across the land for the past three years.

    My iron shoots whites too:

    And the civil rights initiative AfriForum also lodged complaints on behalf of a member of the public, Joe Wilkinson, against a member of the South African Police Service (SAPS) with the SA Human Rights Commission (HRC) and Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) of the police, after a police officer in Delmas member threatened Wilkinson with a fire-arm and said that his "iron shoots whites too".

    • Wilkinson turned to AfriForum for help as he did not receive support from the SAPS in this matter. The event occurred in Delmas after a traffic accident involving a taxi. The SAPS-member, who allegedly was under the influence of alcohol at the time, and was not identified as member of the police, blocked the only lane open to traffic after the accident with his vehicle.
    • Wilkinson asked the member, who was speaking to the people on the scene from inside his vehicle to move it as it was obstructing the traffic. The member then started shouting at Wilkinson and after pulling his vehicle off the road, charged at Wilkinson with a 9mm pistol in his hand. He made several remarks to Wilkinson, including "my iron also shoots whites".

    Wilkinson then rushed to the Delmas Police Station to report the incident. According to Nantes Kelder, Head of Community Safety of AfriForum, it ‘was disturbing to note that the SAPS-member simply continued with his threats against Wilkinson at the police station. At one stage, Wilkinson even had to hide between vehicles on the premises of the police station. No worthwhile effort was made to calm the member - the station commissioner allegedly only told the member to go home and sleep it off.”

    Kelder said these actions amount to an abuse of power as well as racism, “both of which seem to be on the increase amongst members of the police service. “ He also condemned the actions of the station commissioner and said that the member should have been arrested immediately – but instead, was even allowed to drive while being under the influence of alcohol, which is equally unacceptable.

    Wilkinson now fears for his life after the member's vehicle has been seen driving past his home several times. Kelder also asked for the matter to be investigated by an independent investigator. Kelder said one of the reasons for the growing number of complaints about the abuse of power and racism against members of the SAPS is the fact that there is a complete lack of leadership within the SAPS. http://www.afriforum.co.za/english/?p=2061

    Death threats against whites screamed by black Tembisa police inspector:

    A black police inspector from the Tembisa police station, standing next to a suspected robber, greeted all the whites present at the scene with a stream of curses and death-threats, yelling that they were 'white dogs' and telling one white female police officer that he 'would see to it that she will be shot dead during a robbery.' He pushed an R5 rifle into Mr Lubbe's face and told him: "It's high time you whites pack up your stuff and f**k off out of this country...' An uninvolved eye-witness to the armed robbery also told Beeld how the black inspector had screamed this stream of hate-speech and death-threats at the white people on the scene, and told the Beeld journalist: "I saw how these people robbed the whites, and how the black police inspector was then protecting the criminal." The Tembisa police inspector would only open a police investigation into a 'traffic accident,' he told the victims...

    • Shortly thereafter the wife of the Corsa driver also showed up, posing as a police officer. A member of the Norkem Park police unit told Beeld that this woman had even tried to arrest the white police officers while they had tried to search the Corsa during their investigation of the armed robbery, claiming that the white cops were 'interfering on the scene of a crime.' Lubbe said this woman had then emptied out his daughter's robbed handbag of all its contents -- and then gave them back the empty bag...

    On Tuesday-morning, Lubbe lodged formal complaints of armed robbery and attempted robbery at the Norkem Park police station.
    Police supt. Eugene Opperman of Gauteng said the entire incident was being investigated 'with a view to look into having to take corrective measures'.
    The provincial- and Tembisa police station commanders both issued statements expressing 'shock about the alleged incident...'

    Athletics South Africa charged with nciting racial hatred over athlete Caster Semenya hermaphrodite claim

    Cape Town – Sept 1 2009 - Civil rights organisation AfriForum has laid a charge with the world's governing body of athletics against the president of Athletics South Africa (ASA) for inciting racial polarisation over athlete Caster Semenya. http://www.afriforum.co.za/english/?p=3289

    Chuene of Athletics SA accused of inciting racial polarisation over Caster Semenya case Athletics South Africa head Leonard Chuene

     
    AfriForum chief executive Kallie Kriel said he had laid a charge against Leonard Chuene, with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

    "Chuene's polarising statements, which transformed the deplorable events regarding Caster Semenya's gender into a racial issue... is a gross violation of the IAAF's constitution and rules."

    Kriel said Chuene had also been charged by AfriForum with allowing the ASA's media conference and gathering at the time of Semenya's return to South Africa to be used as a platform for ANC politicians to exploit Semenya for political purposes.

    Attack against all SA whites

    "The president of the ANC Youth League, Julius Malema, amongst others also launched a scathing attack against whites at this occasion," Kriel said.

    • He said AfriForum had asked the IAAF to take strong action against those responsible for disclosing the information about the gender testing which caused the violation of Semenya's privacy and human dignity.

    Semenya, 18, won a gold medal in the women's 800m race at the World Athletics Championship in Berlin, Germany. This win by the teenager was marred however by controversy as the IAAF ordered she undergo gender verification tests under claims that she was a hermaphrodite with more than three times of the male hormone testosterone in her body as did average women. This particular controversy has raged around this athlete inside South Africa for the past four years.

  • 12 February 2009. The Pretoria High Court ordered the country's Safety and Security Minister and five police officers to pay $38,000 in damages for manhandling an Afrikaner- Pretoria family after a rugby game. Pretoria High Court Judge Bill Prinsloo ruled the SA Police Service liable to pay damages to Pretoria North businessman David Pieterse, his wife Susan and sons David and Jason Pieterse for insulting, assaulting, unlawfully arresting and detaining as well as maliciously prosecuting them. The incident was sparked when an unknown man punched Jason during an argument after a rugby game at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria in 2005. Jason then lost consciousness. His brother David got hold of the attacker and handed him over to a policeman, who instead let the assailant go. When David Pieterse junior questioned the policeman’s conduct, several other policemen joined in and started swearing at him and assaulting him before throwing him in a police van. When his father tried to intervene, he too was assaulted and arrested. Police also grossly insulted his mother Susan, threatened to arrest her, and a policewoman kicked her on the leg. Father and son were further abused at the police office and were forced to spend a night in a filthy, smelly cell. The Afrikaners feared for their lives, as police threatened to take the (white) family to the high-crime (black )townships of Soshanguve and Atteridgeville to be “sorted out”. The court found that the family then was also falsely charged with assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest, and that they had been forced to appear in court several times before being acquitted, the judgment summary noted.  David sen. burst into tears in court when he testified how police had descended on him, allegedly acting “like wild animals” and started assaulting him for no reason and how helpless he felt when he could not protect his son. Judge Prinsloo rejected claims by the police that the family 'had been aggressive'; that David jun. tried to escape and that David sen. had 'assaulted members of the police, including a policewoman,' and tried to forcibly free is son. The judge said in his summary that the police witnesses had been 'vague, inconsequent and their versions absurd, ridiculous and unlikely.' The court pointed out that a freelance photographer’s photos of the incident, submitted as evidence, clearly showed the Afrikaner dad surrounded by a large group of policemen who were all much bigger than him."It was highly unlikely that he would have been the aggressor," the court pointed out. Prinsloo concluded that the police had neglected their duties and had arrested and prosecuted father and son to disguise their own misconduct. "If they had done their job, Jason would probably have been able to sue his attacker for the injuries he sustained," the judge added. He awarded both David senior and junior $13,500 in damages each; Mrs Pieterse $5,000 and Jason $6,000. The SA Police Service also was ordered to pay their legal costs. see also see See

    Feb 13 2009 Daniel Maluleke of Beeld newspaper wrote that seven uniformed men in police uniforms had attacked 64-year-old Afrikaner resident Conraad Coertze outside his Groenkloof, Pretoria home. During this 7am assault, the old man was told: "We wish you would bleed to death, you f..ng Boer'. Coertze was ambushed by the men -- dressed in South African Police Service uniforms -- at the security gate of his smallholding while he was unlocking it for the arrival of the gardener. They forced him into the homestead, hogtied him with wire, and started kicking and beating him. "'Then one carved open my right leg with a knife, and kicked me in the groin and on the left knee. Then he said 'we wish you would bleed to death, you f...ng Boer'. The gardener was also assaulted - and then the gardener's mother, Mr Coertze's housekeeper Anna Matsimbi, arrived at the house and immediately rushed off to find help, walking two blocks to ask neighbours to contact the police. Police said they 'did not know whether these uniformed men had been cops.' No-one was arrested. see

Due to this scrutinised voting system, many students spoiled their votes in protest. Even so, the FF-Plus representatives gained 8 of the 18 seats as opposed to the ANC's (SASCO) 9 seats. The DA could only gain one seat. More than 65% of the students at this university already “voluntarily  choose “ English-language tutoring instead of Afrikaans, due to this suppressive scrutiny.  That’s how Afrikaners are losing all their language rights at public educational institutions. The author of this article says this kind of scrutiny does not exist at “black” universities at all…Photograph by Freedom Front Plus.

    “No one cares about issues of diversity facing black universities. No one cares what happens there and whether or not the throughput rates are increasing, whether or not targets are being met to produce qualified and competent doctors, engineers, scientists, nurses, and the other urgent skills required by our economy.

    “No one asks whether or not the racial balance at the black universities has been met, or whether or not numeracy or academic levels have improved. “Why is this debate not in the public realm?

    “Unlike black universities, formerly white universities are under constant scrutiny for racial transformation .

    • “Many former white universities with black vice-chancellors have become no-go areas, the fiefdoms of those who stifle free debate and tyrannise those academics who dare to ask questions.

    Countless disciplinary procedures have been instituted against those who will not “toe the line” , at great legal cost to universities who need those monies for academic programmes.” – Rhoda Kadalie in Business Day -  http://constitutionallyspeaking.co.za/julius-where-are-you-when-we-need-you/comment-page-1/#comment-17479

    “Democratic voting rights of students taken away:”

    Jan van Niekerk, Provincial Youth Leader of the FF Plus in the Free State, expressed his concern about the university’s student council election.

    • "Unacceptable complaints, such as the intimidation by agents, security guards and SASCO members who pointed out to students where to cast their vote for SASCO, nearly all voting booths opening more than an hour late and student numbers which were purposefully written incorrectly by agents, were taken note of."

    “The FF PLus will urgently be giving consideration to possible further steps,” Van Niekerk said. It would be irresponsible of any party to allow mistakes of this nature to go unnoticed, while students’ democratic rights are being curtailed. he concluded. http://www.vf.co.za
