Graad van blanke armoede skok

Daar is met skok kennis geneem van die graad en wydverspreidheid van armoede onder blankes in Suid-Afrika, in besonder onder Afrikaners, met die sirkulasie op sosiale media van 'n verslag deur Daniël Lötter van Front Nasionaal oor die toestande in die Munsieville blanke plakkerskamp te Krugersdorp. Uittreksels uit die verslag getiteld Waar ‘n volk sy skaamte weggegooi het, lees soos volg: “Nog nooit in my lewe het enigiets wat ek moes skryf, soveel van my geverg nie, dis wat in Munsieville by Krugersdorp aangetref word. Dit was op ‘n tyd ‘n ashoop – ‘n plek waar mense vuilgoed weggegooi het. Nou is dit mense wat daar weggegooi is. “Bejaarde mans met verrimpelde hande. Kinders met groot oë… net oë waarin daar niks uitdrukking meer is nie. Kinders wat na dinge kyk sonder om in te neem wat hulle sien, want dinge rondom hulle is maar net daar, dit het geen nut nie. “Uit die maalkolk van die menslike gang aan die Gautengse Wes-Rand het hulle hier uitgespoel. Die man in die sinkhok – wat op ‘n afstand lyk soos die tipiese hok wat op ‘n boereplaas staan vir die werfhond. Maar dis ‘n mens wat daarin skuiling maak. “Die man wat geopereer is vir ‘n breuk, maar die wond is nou oop. 13 cm lank, 5 cm wyd en stinkend van die verswering van septisemie. ‘Het jy vir my pleisters gebring?’ vra hy ‘Ek gee hom nog ‘n week,’ sê die ou man wat saamloop. ‘Dis die vyfde een vanjaar. Hulle wonde raak septies en hulle sterf.’ “Nie ver daarvandaan is ‘n skuiling waarin twee bejaardes woon.

'Eden has highest suicide rate in SA'

A former health worker at a clinic in George, Juanita Nel, has walked her own difficult road with major depression and is now motivating others in her position to get help.

GARDEN ROUTE NEWS - Juanita Nel suffered from the "blues" during her years at college.

She started hearing voices after the birth of her first baby, and it was dismissed as postnatal stress. She became delusional after her second child and only then received the help she desperately needed.

Nel, as with many other patients, had a difficult time explaining to her family how she felt. She was ultimately diagnosed with major depression.

Through the support of her family, community and professional help, Nel is now able to enjoy life. A former health worker at Conville Clinic in George, Nel does motivational speaking at the clinic with the hope of motivating others to seek help.

“I am not ashamed to admit that I have a mental illness. Neither should anyone else,” she said.

interests of country

African National Congress (ANC) Parliamentary Chief Whip Jackson Mthembu says that voting in favour of a motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma is tantamount to dropping a nuclear bomb on the country.

The Democratic Alliance-sponsored motion will be debated in the National Assembly next Tuesday.

National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete has yet to announce whether Members of Parliament (MPs) will be allowed to vote in secret.

But regardless of her decision, Mthembu says the ruling party will defeat the motion because removing the president is not in the best interest of the country.

“It will result in the entire Cabinet having to resign, which will lead to a collapse in government with long lasting ramifications.”

Mthembu has reiterated that ANC MPs were deployed to the legislature by the party and are therefore required to toe the party line.
