Roodepoort North, Georginia: cops sweep streets for family-attacking gangs

On 26 Jan 2011, the Roodepoort SAPS teamed up with a large number of local community members and several block watches surrounding Georginia and Roodepoort North to try and sweep the streets clean of the armed-robbery gangs which are targetting families inside their homes.

 These house robberies have increased in the area.  (source: Tihan van der Walt) The SAPS and block watches met on Mouton Road around 6pm and spread out from there.  According to Roodepoort SAPS constable Vincent Mashiteng, they have been informed about an increase in crime in this, and surrounding areas, during or between 6pm and 9pm. "Tonight we will patrol the streets to increase visibility and if we do see crime, we can  arrest the suspects," says Mashiteng. The patrolling parties did not come across any house-robbery cases, but they did enter several shebeens and suspicious-looking properties. Police also did random searches on people on the street. The streets of the entire Roodepoort North and Georginia were filled with patrolling cars and criminals stood no chance of operating during this time. The operation lasted until about 8.30pm, after which the patrolling parties met back at the starting point.

Famine threatens SA: blacks neglect confiscated Boer farms

“ Famine threatens even South Africa – Swedish news report: ‘Svält hotar även Sydafrika ”

Zimbabwe suffers famine since chasing off its white farmers – now food-shortages also threaten in South Africa for the same reasons, according to a Swedish publication today. Their journalists toured SA, visiting and interviewing commercial farmers about the growing famine-problems facing the country.

FAMINE THREATENS SA SWEDISH REPORT BAREND PIENAAR FARMER NYLSTROOMThey also interviewed Nylstroom farmer Barend Pienaar, who was forced to hand over his well-utilised, modern farm to the ANC-regime”. He took them on a tour of his sadly neglected former farm. The Swedish journalists noted that the ‘new black farmers’ who were installed on Pienaar’s  land with their very large extended families, are however not producing any food for the markets on any kind of commercial basis at all: “They are just happy to stay there with their extended families, they are not farming… ’

“Zimbabwe har drabbats av svält sedan de vita farmarna jagats ut, nu hotar livsmedelsbrist även i Sydafrika. Ännu konfiskeras inte marken officiellt, men de m

ånga morden och nya lagar gör att jordbruk läggs ned varje dag. Nationell Idag har besökt både vita farmare som ansett det nödvändigt att säga upp sina svarta anställda, och farmer som drivs av svarta.

Boer Barend Pienaar driver en viltfarm utanför Nylstroom. Hans farm, liksom många runtomkring, var tidigare ett produktivt jordbruk. Alla har gått över till verksamheter som inte är så arbetsintensiva – antingen mekaniserar man eller så hittar men en verksamhet som familjen själv kan sköta. Det beror på nya lagar som ANC stiftat.

Enligt de nya lagarna har svarta som bor på en farm automatiskt rätt till en del av marken. Det räcker med att de vistas där 24 timmar, så har de rätt att ta dit hela sin släkt, vilket vanligen omfattar flera dussin personer. För att inte bli av med sin farm tvingas farmarna att bara anställa arbetare som inte bor på farmen.
Vi åker förbi många hus på farmerna som nu står öde. De hade ställts i ordning för svarta arbetare av farmarna, med el, vatten och avlopp. Nu tvingas många av dessa svarta att bo i något slumområde och i bästa fall – om farmen inte gått över till annan verksamhet – pendla till jobbet

Ellen Randall dies 2hrs after hospital discharge

Mrs Ellen Randall, admitted in severe pain to Edenvale hospital May 5, spent 8 days ‘without much care of attention from medical staff’. she died May 12:  within two hours of being discharged…

22 May 2011 -- Mrs Ellen Randall, a hearing-impatient woman who was taken to Edenvale Hospital in severe pain on May 5, spent eight days there with little or no attention from doctors and nursing staff, although colon-cancer and liver-cancer was diagnosed. She died on May 12 within two hours of being discharged.

RANDALL Ellen dies hours after discharge Edenvale Hospital Rademeyer Sharmaine and daughter  Relatives of Mrs Randall (left) accompanied her to the hospital and told nursing staff that she was hearing impaired and that she needed nappies because she could not move much. The adult diapers were provided by the relatives along with her pyjamas. These items were placed in the bedside cabinet next to Mrs Randall’s bed.

On May 7 her niece Mrs Shamaine Rademeyer arrived at the hospital at 3pm to visit her aunt: and noticed a large bruise on the right side of her aunt’s face. Mrs Rademeyer asked a few nurses what had happened to her aunt. “They could not tell me what happened,” said Mrs Rademeyer. She also noticed that Mrs Randall’s diapers had not been changed. On Sunday morning another relative went to visit Mrs Randall. The relative noticed that again, the patient’s diapers  had not been changed. “She was wet and so was her bedding,” said Mrs Rademeyer. The relative then requested dry bedding which was brought by a nurse, but left for the relative to change.

Mrs Randall was taken to the sonamed “Charlotte Maxeke” Hospital on May 9 for tests at the hospital’s gastro enterology unit – where it was discovered that she suffered from colon- and liver cancer – and possibly also brain cancer. More tests would have to determine the extent of her cancer on May 12. After the tests, Mrs Randall was returned to Edenvale Hospital.

‘All the doctors had left…’ they claimed…

“On Wednesday when I went to visit her, I could see that something was wrong with her,” said Mrs Rademeyer. “I asked to see a doctor, and was told that there was no doctor as they had all left,” she said. Mrs Rademeyer then took her aunt down to the casualty unit in a wheelchair. There she asked for the doctor at the casualty unit to attend to her aunt. “A male nurse came out and screamed at me, telling me to take the patient back to the ward,” said Mrs Rademeyer. This male nurse The nurse told Mrs Rademeyer to ‘ask the nurses in ward seven to call a doctor’ – yet the  nurses at ward seven again told Mrs Rademeyer that ‘there was no doctor on duty.” “I told them that if I do not see a doctor, I am taking my aunt home with me,” said Mrs Rademeyer

. “Five minutes later, a female doctor appeared and asked what was wrong,” said Mrs Rademeyer.  She told the doctor that something was wrong with her aunt and that she urgently needed medical attention. Mrs Randall usually had high blood pressure and was on blood pressure medication. “Her blood pressure dropped from 146 the previous day to 86 on Wednesday, which was abnormal,” said Mrs Rademeyer. On May 12 Mrs Randall was again due to go to the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital for further tests, but could not go due to her poor state of health.

Mrs Rademeyer’s mother was meanwhile waiting for Mrs Randall at the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital, and called her daughter when Mrs Randall didn’t arrive when she was supposed to. Mrs Rademeyer then contacted the Edenvale Hospital to find out where her aunt was. The hospital told Mrs Rademeyer that Mrs Randall ‘could not be transported using a wheelchair and that special transport would be needed which had not arrived yet.’ Mrs Rademeyer immediately went to the Edenvale Hospital with her family. She also contacted her aunt’s case manager, Mrs Thandi Sithole, telling her that Mrs Randall would be taken to Edenvale Hospice (Edenvale Care Centre) that day.

…  and she died within two hours after discharge from Edenvale

Mrs Rademeyer said that there was no doctor to discharge her aunt and that she (Mrs Rademeyer) had to sign a release form. She accused nursing staff of refusing to provide any form of assistance to transport Mrs Randall to the car after Mrs Rademeyer asked for a wheelchair. “When I arrived at Edenvale Hospice, Sister Leigh confirmed that my aunt was in a very bad state,” said Mrs Rademeyer.

Mrs Randall died about two hours after arriving at Edenvale Care Centre.

Official comment was of course also obtained from clinical manager D Maluleke who , “categorically” (whatever that means) denied allegations of poor service at the hospital stating; “We have a complaints system in the entire hospital with locked complaint boxes in each and every ward.”  Dr Maluleke added that nursing staff wear name tags to aid in identification. When asked about the patient’s condition and her treatment at the hospital, Dr Maluleke said; “Edenvale Hospital is bound by doctor and patient confidentially, thus we will not comment further.”

Mrs Ellen Randall was admitted to Edenvale hospital in severe pain on May 5. After colon-cancer was diagnosed, she was given ‘little or no attention’ by medical staff. She was discharged on 12 May and died two hours later said her niece Charmaine Rademeyer, pictured, with her daughter.
