Bekkersdal protests continue

NATIONAL NEWS - Gauteng police were monitoring Bekkersdal, outside Westonaria, on Wednesday following violent service delivery protests in the area.

Constable Elsie Tshonte said a group of protesters gathered near the local taxi rank.

"They are singing and burning tyres... It's not violent," she said.

She denied reports that a foreign shop owner shot and wounded a protester earlier.

"It's hearsay... Nothing has been reported at the police station yet."

During the protests last week, residents threw stones and a petrol bomb at the local police station, damaging three police vehicles and a disaster management vehicle.

Thirty-five people were arrested and charged with public violence.

Daar word hierdie week berig oor 'n sewejarige dogtertjie wat deur 'n hond gebyt is. By wie lê die verantwoordelikheid?
Dit is ouers se plig om hulle kinders bedag te maak daarop dat enige hond wel kan byt, asook hoe daar opgetree moet word teenoor honde.

Dit is die eienaar se plig om toe te sien alles word gedoen om te verseker dat 'n hond nie byt nie, hetsy mense of ander diere.

Die verantwoordelikheid lê by ouers sowel as honde-eienaars om kinders én honde op te voed.
