'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.

Kokaïen (Generiese foto)

SUID-KAAP NUUS - Twee mense, 'n man en vrou, is Sondagoggend (28 Mei) op die N1 naby Beaufort-Wes in hegtenis geneem nadat kokaïen en tik van sowat R20,5 miljoen in die motor waarmee hulle gery het, gevind is.

Hulle was onderweg van Johannesburg na Kaapstad.

Die 52 kg tik en 5,5 kg kokaïen was in plastieksakke in die kattebak van die voertuig versteek.

Beide verdagtes, ’n Nigeriese man (49) en ’n Zimbabwiese vrou (28), het vroeër die week in die hof op Beaufort-Wes verskyn waar hul saak tot volgende Maandag (5 Junie) uitgestel is vir 'n formele borgtogaansoek.

Jong vrou sterf in ongeluk




GEORGE NUUS - 'n Jong vrou van George, Caroline van der Merwe, het gisteraand in 'n noodlottige botsing in Knysnaweg gesterf.

3 Voertuie - 'n Peugeot, Chevrolet Sonic en 'n Volkswagen Caddy - was in die gru-botsing betrokke omstreeks 23:00 naby die Glenwood-gholfbaan.

Caroline was die bestuurder van die Peugeot.
Sy is op die toneel dood verklaar en reddingswerkers moes haar liggaam met meganiese kake uit die wrak lossny.

Twee manlike passasiers wat saam met haar in die motors was, moes ook uitgesny word. Albei is na die Mediclinic George geneem.

In die Chevrolet Sonic, wat ook erg beskadig is, was twee mense. Albei is ook na die Mediclinic geneem sowel as die bestuurder van die Caddy. Hy was alleen in die voertuig.

Dit is in die stadium onduidelik presies wat gebeur het.
