She agreed but I am still waiting until now.

“Last week I started to make sure that the traffic is reduced before it cause an accident that may kill road users, I was joined by 18 community members. This intersection is busy in the morning between 6 and 8 am, in the afternoons between 4 and 8 pm every day. It is worse every Monday morning and every Friday afternoons. It is also worse on the 14, 15, 16, 25 and 30 of every month

“We not will stop controlling traffic until the road is being increased on the sides to reduce traffic and the project has already started it will finish next year April. After the road has been increased we will monitor it and if there is still a lot of traffic we will help to control it again,” said Chiloane.

Off duty, cop abandoned wedding to arrest a criminal

 

By AFRICA KA MAHAMBA

A COP THAT was attending a wedding in Mpumalanga drove back from Nelspruit to arrest the most wanted criminal in Pretoria West.

Captain Simon Motolla has just arrived in Nespriut less than 30 minutes for the wedding on Saturday celebration when he received a tip-off about the most wanted criminal.

Captain Daniel Mavimbela of the Sunnyside police said the brave and dedicated cop just abandoned the wedding and drove back to Pretoria within 30 minutes after arriving at the wedding.

“Despite being off-duty for the weekend and attending the wedding of a friend and fellow captain in Mpumalanga Province, a tenacious, intelligence-driven Sunnyside police captain, Simon Motolla, travelled more than 300 kilometres to organise and lead a sting operation that led to the capture of a suspect of murder who had been on the run for almost a year and a half.

“It is believed that the 34-year-old man was among the suspects who reportedly lured the 23 years old Shaun Douglas Chabalala who was an upcoming musician, to a flat in Sunnyside, east of Pretoria, during May 2018, with a fake advertisement of a luxury camera before the latter was pushed to his death from the seventh floor during what is suspected to be a robbery gone wrong,”said Mavimbela.

Mavimbela said the suspect was reportedly found inside the ceiling of a house in Pretoria West where he hid after he noticed the police, but that was subsequent to an initial search and the SAPS Dog Unit being summoned to that house. 

Tshwane police district commissioner, Major General Daniel Mthombeni, has commended Captain Motolla and his team for their dedication and commitment following the operation. 

“It is officers like Captain Motolla who offer hope to our communities and will stop at nothing to ensure they (communities) are and feel safe,” Mthombeni said. africa@africakamahamba.co.za

Call for boycott and arrest of Mampitsha

By AFRICA KA MAHAMBA

THE  ANCWL YWD has called for boycotting and arrest of controversial Durban artists known as Mampitsha. This came after a video showing the artist assaulting Babes Wodumo.

Precious Banda the National Convenor of the  ANCWL YWD said they note with disgust the circulating video of music artist Mampintsha physically assaulting his girlfriend and a renowned artist in the music industry, Babes Wodumo.

“The position of the ANCWL YWD on rape and Gender-Based Violence remains consistent, we detest abusers, and we affirm that there is no space in our democratic country for abuse and rape. We also stand and believe the women who continue to be violated and dehumanized in the hands of men. The ANCWL YWD further contends that our communities should at all times stand with the victim.

“We call on the sexual offenses unit under SAPS to take up the matter because the video is available on public platforms. It is in the interest of the people in general and women in particular that they pursue this matter and every other matter that reaches public attention. The SAPS and the entire criminal justice system has an obligation to defend the violation of any law of our country, in this case, the clear violation of the Domestic Violence Act, Sexual Offenses Act and the rights of women,” said Banda.

Banda further calls on all South African’s and radio stations to boycott and mute Mampintsha immediately and the music industry in its entirety should not support an artist that is an unrepentant abuser.

She said whereas in South Africa the law states one is innocent until proven guilty, they hold the principle that in a deeply patriarchal society like ours, they have a responsibility to side with and protect the victim.

“ A continued support for the monster Mampintsha is an affirmation and perpetuation of the abuse of women, people that support abusers are the reason women and children continue to get killed on a daily basis. We call on all of us to stand in solidarity with women that gain the courage to speak out and also with those that continue to suffer in silence.

“We also call for drastic changes and deliberate policies in the entertainment industry because women continue to suffer in silence as their music and talent are “owned” by record labels that are managed and owned by abusive men who threaten to destroy them whenever they stand up for themselves,” added Banda.

She stressed that because of social and economic implications, it is difficult for women in the entertainment industry to break the silence and stand against these abusive men.

“We call on the Minister of arts and culture to establish a special programme that empowers women record labels and that a fund is established to assist women that want to walk out of abusive stables in the industry. The time for men threatening to own women in this industry is over,” she concluded. africa@citypost.co.za
