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.

Mans wat pa word is geregtig op drie dae betaalde kraamverlof. 'n Man in die Kaap voel, nadat ssy tweeling vroeggebore is dat drie dae nie voldoende is nie en dat tien dae kraamverlof meer gepas is. Hy het 'n aansoek by die Hooggeregshof hieroor ingedien om die wet gewysig te kry.
Dit is heeltemal reg, 'n vrou het die pa van haar kinders nodig na die geboort van 'n kind.

Dit is belaglik, mans behoort nie kraamverlof te kry nie.
