Gee it’s great to be ♫On the road again♫ and in-spite of the freezing cold mornings the weather has been very good to ‘Buddy and Me’ with conditions warming up nicely once the sun has had an opportunity to shine, it’s incredible what sunshine can do to get me motivated.

Monday morning found ‘Buddy and Me’ heading out of the Dos Santos’s garden cottage in the direction of Westonaria where I got to spend some time chatting to two very dedicated police ladies, members of the Westonaria SAPS – FCS unit in the form of Florence Molapo and Lucia Montwedi. These two ladies provided me with some astonishing facts concerning the rape, prostitution and general child abuse going on in the townships and informal settlements which are included in the area covered by the Westonaria SAPS – FCS unit.

But first I must tell you that the area is a mighty large one which includes 5 satellite police stations which are serviced by the Westonaria SAPS – FCS unit with 9 townships and informal settlements which house on average around 7 000 people each and this entire vast area is serviced by three FCS members. I would love to know how many traffic cops are employed in this massive area???

I was told that at least 40% of the house holds in the townships and informal settlement areas are headed by children in the 14 – 17 year-old age group who have on average 3 – 5 siblings to raise. Obviously because of the children’s act which forbids child labour, and rightly so, the ‘heads’ of these families use ‘other mean’ of obtaining / ‘earning’ money to feed and clothe themselves and their siblings. Unfortunately the ‘other means’ includes the prostitution of both themselves as well as their siblings who are as young as 4 and 5 years of age.

The thing that I find amazing is the fact that the police and other government institutions, such as the Department of Social Development are fully aware of these practices, but turn a blind eye because “the kids have to survive some how”. (This was not a quotation from the two lady police officials I interviewed, in-fact they are horrified at what is going on in the area, and are desperately seeking a solution to the problem, but was quoted by another staff member of another government department, who in-fact is a social worker!). Other forms of generating income in these child headed homes include the operating of ‘Shabeens’ – illegal pubs/bottle stores and so the abuse of alcohol and drugs is rife, which obviously adds to the problem of the rape and sexual abuse of the children.

As one individual I spoke to, who happens to be employed in a government institution and who is also a social worker, pointed out, “if the kids found proper jobs, be it on local farms or wherever, to generate income, the individuals employing them would be hammered very quickly by the authorities for contravening the Children’s Act”. So according to the authorities it appears, it is better that they participate in the destruction of their siblings lives by prostituting them and allowing them to be abused by drunken savages who rape and sexually abuse them and the small kids rather than work!!

So to Hantie Wagener, the stand in manager of the Beares store in Westonaria, many thanks for arranging the meeting with my guests, which included members of the police as well as social workers in the area

 So meet the staff of Beares Westonaria.

From Westonaria ‘Buddy and Me’ drove the short distance, over the hill, to the other magic little mining town of Fochville. Here I had, apart from others, an intense discussion with an intriguing lady by the name of Annelie van Rooyan who is a social worker employed with the ‘Fochville Social Services’ – an initiative of the ‘Dutch reformed Church’ and Annelie I don’t care what you say about the fact that the word ‘Social Worker’ is used too freely and that the far majority of people using that title do not deserve to use it, because you most certainly do. Annelie confirmed that the abuse of both women and children in the area is extremely bad, and that there is no support structure for abused women and children at all in the area.

She agreed with me that the ‘system’ is letting victims down and that the system it’s self in the form of the government is in-fact guilty of child abuse. She told me of one specific case in which a mother was charged for the severe beating and assault of a very small child, her second offence, and on appearing in court the magistrate asked her if she was “sorry for what she had done” on saying “yes” the case was dismissed and she was given a warning!! Annelie confirmed that social workers and teachers etc are fed up with becoming the ‘baddies’ by reporting child abuse (In accordance with section 54 of Act32/2007 of the Sexual Offences Act) in situations where kids are being severely beaten and abused and the savages perpetrating these abuses are walking away from court without so much as a smack on the wrist.

According to Annalie, the far majority of South Africans, and I agree with her whole heartedly, do not have a clue of what is going on with regard to the rape and sexual abuse of children in South Africa, and generally don’t want to know and in the majority of instances hide their heads in the sand like Ostriches – until it happens to their child and then they scream blue murder and claim that “nobody is doing anything”.

The Beares staff in Fochville really did a sterling job in making my visit to the area a really interesting one, so to the Beares store manager Trudie Shaw and her staff, thank you for going to all the effort to make my visit to Fochville such a good one.

So meet the friendly staff of Beares Fochville (that’s Trudie with the red hair – a fiery ladyJ)

Tuesday morning I bid farewell to my hosts for the weekend,

 Hanntjie and Cisco Dos Santos, and headed for the sparkling clean town of Meyerton. Here thanks to the lovely and friendly Beares Manager Karen Landers who did an outstanding job in arranging for a large group of guests who are all involved in some way or another with providing support to child rape victims, to come to the store to chat to me .

 Amongst the guests were a few staff members of the Thuthuzela Care Centre which has been established (well sort of) at the Kopanong Hospital in Vereeniging. It was also the first time that any Thuthuzela Care Centre had attended a meeting at a Beares store and had their large banner flying high outside the Beares store and were chatting to passer-bys and handing out brochures containing information on the centre.

After a lengthy discussion with my guests in which after providing them with the details of my proposed solution to eradicating the rape and sexual abuse of children from our society, they all agreed that I was definitely on the right track, especially with regard to the proper establishment of the Thuthuzela Care Centres as per my link on this website. So to Karen and her friendly staff at Beares Meyerton,

you have my heartfelt thanks for the amazing job you did in arranging for the very interesting group of guests you got to your store to talk to me. Oh yes, that’s Karen with the blond hair in the picture.

I also got to meet and chat to the staff of the Lubners store in Meyerton, so to these friendly people,

thanks for your friendship and support to the ‘Buddy and Me’ project and words of encouragement.

My visit to the Thuthuzela Care Centre later in the afternoon revealed that unfortunately in-spite of the fact that the staff at the centre are amongst the most dedicated Thuthuzela Care Centre personal I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and the marketing of the centres services to the community as well as the close relationship they have with the local SAPS – FCS unit members is outstanding, the centre is still not providing the essential services and support structures they profess to provide in their glossy brochures on site at the centre.

Hence I still maintain and stand by my belief that the Thuthuzela Care Centres, as they are currently being established, is a total waist of time and money, because the services they are providing is basically the same as those which are being provided by thousands of NGO’s and NPO’s all over South Africa, and the service they should be providing should be a ‘one stop’ point of report service and they should be leaving the post rape services as in on going counselling etc to the NGO’s.

My accommodation for the next three nights, being Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, was arranged by the Round Tablers of Van der Bijl Park at the magnificent Emerald Casino and Hotel, so following the completion of my meetings and information gathering I made haste to the luxury of my latest ‘home’ / accommodation.

 

My next visit was to the township area of Evaton and after meeting and chatting to the Evaton Beares staff

 

 I headed to Vereeniging via the centre of the township. Obviously, as always happens, I was forced to make a few stops and chat to members of the community who were only too happy to chat to me and provide me with their comments and opinions on what needs to be done to eradicate the disgusting crime of child rape from their communities and society in general, and I could not help but wish that our government would take the time to talk to the members of these communities and hear how they believe the death penalty should be implemented for savages raping children.

My visits to the Vereeniging and Vander Bijl Park areas produced probably what must be some of the most fascinating discussions I have had with police officials I have had in a long time. The meetings with these interesting members of the police FCS unit were arranged by the Beares store Managers in the respective towns,

Beares Vereeniging and

Beares Vander Bijl Park. The talks included a few other guests as well who all contributed to making the discussions really interesting ones.

The most interesting aspect of the discussion was surrounding the statistics which the police are required to submit to head quarters which are forwarded to parliament via the minister of police.

The ‘powers that be’ in the police, along with the Minister and other parliamentary members, throw a wobbly, and rightly so, whenever statistics reveal an increase in crime in all areas of South Africa. However what they have failed to identify is the fact that because we are only experiencing a measly 15 – 18% of child rape cases in South Africa being reported, the situation as far as child rape is concerned will have to get much worse, as in the reporting of child rape, before it can get better.

Unfortunately what is currently occurring, is that when a police station commander submits his statistics which reveal an increase in the number of child rape cases occurring in his or her area, the ‘powers that be’ throw a wobbly, when in-fact they should be commending the police in that area because all that has occurred is that the police in that area have done a good job by way of campaigns at schools and in the communities to encourage children and mothers to report child rape.

With this in mind I believe that the statistics concerning the rape and sexual abuse of children should not be read in conjunction with the other statistics of crime and that the police in the areas where child rape reveals an increase in the number of cases reported, these policemen and women should be commended.

I also got to meet and chat to the staff of Lubners in Vereeniging

 and this bunch of friendly individuals provided me with some fascinating comments and opinions on what they believe should be done to eradicate child rape from our society.

The other store I visited is the new Beares store in Van der Bijl Park situated in the Bedworth Centre

 and here I was given the opportunity to chat to a large group including the Beares staff for over an hour and obtained some more fascinating comments and opinions on what needs to be done to stop child rape and after presenting the details of my proposed solution everyone said “YES THAT”S WHAT HAS TO BE DONE!”

My visit to Sasolburg was a particularly enjoyable one, with a studio interview with Karabo Radio (Kfm) with Radebe Jabulani

I also got to visit another Thuthuzela Care Centre which has been established (sort of) at the Metsimaholo District Hospital, which once again, I am sorry to say, even after having been established 8 months ago, is currently a total waist of time and money. This centre operates with 2 staff members and it is marketed on the basis that victims must first go to the police station and then be transported by police vehicle to the centre where in the hospital there is ONE doctor on duty to handle all casualty cases, it was confirmed that it can take hours to get the doctor to undertake the essential J88 forensic examination. The centre has handled a total of approximately 70 cases since its establishment 8 months ago, with 5% being cases of child rape in which the victims were under the age of 12 years of age. The hospital does not have one single forensic nurse!!!

So thanks to the manager and staff of Beares Sasolburg for arranging such an interesting group of people for me to talk to during my visit to Sasolburg

My evening was spent socialising and talking to the members of Round Table of Van der Bijl Park as well as Sasolburg, Vereeniging and Carletonville.

 Me being pinned and presented with the Van der Bijl Park Round Table lapel pin and banner by the Table Chairman Kabous Du Preez.

After the meeting we were joined for a social evening by the Tablers wives, sorry for the poor quality of the photo but it was probably the number of beers I had consumed at that stage that effected the qualityJ

My accommodation for the weekend was hosted in the form of home hosting by the Chairman of Round Table Sasolburg, Thys Human,

 Thys is the guy on the left of the picture and believe me it was really appreciated because other wise I would have had to camp somewhere along the banks of the Vaal river, and believe me it is cold here, so many thanks Thys your friendship and hospitality is sincerely appreciated.

 

Before I sign off I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Cameron Mundy who spent a large portion of Friday night building a new lid for Buddy’s storage box which is situated behind my seat and which totally rotted and broke into pieces.

 Man (Cameron Mundy) and dog after a successful job completed.

Well that about sums up the activities of ‘Buddy and Me’ for the passed week, and I am sure Julia who kindly assists me by converting my sms’d blogs to whatever form is needed to post them onto the website is saying, “and thank heavens for that’ so Julia I am sincerely sorry for the extra long blog and especially for the number of photo’s, but it was a long week with a lot happening, but (once againJ) I will make a concerted effort to reduce the number of photos in the future.

So with that I will bid you farewell for now, so until next I get a chance to write, keep well, stay safe and above all KEEP ALL CHILDREN SAFE.

Caring regards from

Buddy (The Beach Buggy)

To see ‘Buddy and Me’s’ detailed schedule for the period 14th June – 19th July 2011 see blog 34

 Hi to all the supporters and readers off the ‘Buddy and Me’ website. Yep just when you thought it was safe to go back out on the streets, ‘Buddy and Me’ pop up again and it’s good to be, as in the words of Johnny Cash, ♫On the road again♫.

 I apologise for the delay in submitting an updated blog but with my moms passing away on the 27th May and waiting for her ashes etc and then having to go to Jo’burg to collect my ‘new/renewed – according to the new system’ firearm licence which took three and a half years to process and I was told that I only had 6 weeks to collect it or else it would be cancelled?, I have not been involved in the child rape situation for the passed couple of weeks, but now I’m back with a vengeance.

So this is my family who send their thanks for all the kind emails and Face Book words of sympathy and condolences which were received from so many people, so this picture was taken after all the missing ones had arrived from all parts of the world for a family reunion the night before my mom’s memorial service at ‘The twisted lemon’ in Westville.

Before I get on with the details of the first week ‘back on the project’, I would like to provide everyone with information regarding ‘what this project, project 3’ is all about and what I hope to achieve from it. The reason for this is that I have had many enquiries from people via email asking what I hope to achieve from this project, ‘Buddy and Me – project 3’ so here goes:

The purpose and aims of ‘Buddy and Me – Project 3’

Projects 1 and 2 were exactly what the project name said: “Searching for a Solution to the Rape and Sexual Abuse of Children’. This entailed thousands of talks with members of the SAPS, court officials, NGO’s, Social workers, etc and in particular members of the communities, especially mothers of victims in townships where the far majority of child rape cases occur, to establish: 1) Why mothers are not reporting the rape of their children 2) What needs to be done to encourage mothers to report the rape of their children 3) What needs to be done to stop the rape of children.

After thousands of discussions and almost 130,000 kilometres of travelling, (on projects 1 & 2 – now completed more than 183 000 kilometres), I arrived at what I believe, and has been verified by hundreds of people working with child rape victims all over South Africa, to be the solution to stopping the rape of children in South Africa, or rather one aspect of it. And so ‘Buddy and Me – Project-3’ is focussed on making the public aware of the fact that there is a solution and in-fact it is starring us right in the face, and it is in the form of the establishment of THUTHUZELA CARE CENTRES at all provincial and Regional hospitals around South Africa. Unfortunately after visiting 28 of the existing centres (93 need to be established) I have identified the fact that in all instances the centres are mere shells and are therefore a total waist of money and time as they are currently being established.

Details of how I believe the Thuthuzela Care Centres should be established can be seen as a link on my website www.buddyandme.co.za “A Proposed Solution to Stopping the Rape of Children”. UNICEF and USAID are the two main contributing donors to the initiative and I would desperately like to meet and chat to someone in a senior position in these organisations regarding the establishment of the Thuthuzela Care Centres, so if anyone reading this blog knows of such a person please email contact details to me via: steve@buddyandme.co.za .

‘Buddy and Me – Project 3’ is therefore focused on an awareness campaign to ensure that government establishes the Thuthuzela Care Centres  properly and provides the mothers with the essential support structure to ensure that mothers report the rape of their children and to bring awareness to the fact that section 54 of Act 32 of the Sexual Offences Act is enforced, this being a section of the act which forces any person who is made aware of the fact that a child has been raped, to report the rape or sexual abuse of the child to the authorities. Unfortunately since it’s inception in November 2007, not one single person has ever been charged under this section, in-spite of the fact that we are experiencing an average of 600 child rape cases a day in South Africa with only 15 – 18% of them being reported to the authorities.

This in a nut shell is what ‘Buddy and Me – Project 3’ is all about. Obviously the other function of the project is to get as much money raised for the NGO organisations identified as links on the front page of this website: The Teddy Bear Clinic, Bobbi Bear Foundation and Clinic, TygerBear and GRIP: by clicking on one, or all of their links, and after linking to the respective organisation, making a donation by clicking onto ‘donations’.

There is much more to ‘Buddy and Me’ – project-3’ which also involves an awareness campaign of the failure of the police and NPA to enforce the contents of section 54 mentioned earlier in this blog, which in itself is contributing to the increase in the number of child rape cases occurring in South Africa.

So after having said all of that, now let me get on with what has been happening in the lives of ‘Buddy and Me’ since rescheduling the project following my mom’s memorial service.

Because I had to first travel to Jo’burg from Pinetown to collect my firearm licence, I decided to reverse the cancelled schedule and so my first visit was to the Krugersdorp area where I visited the Beares store and where the store manager Phyllis Knight and her staff started this leg off with a very loud bang!

Lots of kids spending some really quality time with the staff of Beares and Lubners Krugersdorp.

And no visit to Krugersdorp would be complete without the traditional demo march through the streets of Krugersdorp with the kids screaming at the tops of their little lungs “STOP CHILD ABUSE”.

And so here are the amazingly friendly people of Beares Krugersdorp with the ‘Boss Lady’ – Phyllis Knight – on the extreme right of the picture. And of course we can’t leave out the friendly people forming the staff of Lubners Krugersdorp who contributed to the days activities

So meet the Lubners Krugersdorp staff led by Elize de Beer stand –in manager(with the pink blouse).

While in Krugersdorp I had extensive talks with members of the police forces FCS unit who provided me with some astonishing information on what is happening with the rape and sexual abuse of children in the area as well as Ms. Buyi Makhubela who is the head of the local Teddy Bear Clinic in Krugersdorp and all agreed that my stance or project to have the Thuthuzela Care Centres properly established is a brilliant one and they all fully support my project, so thanks guys your support and words of encouragement is sincerely appreciated.

I also got to meet up with the members of Round Table Krugersdorp where I attended their meeting and did a presentation talk and was presented with the Tables lapel pin and banner with their encouraging comments and well wishes writen on the back to add to my ever increasing collection of Round table pins and banners

 and thanks guys for providing me with great accommodation at ‘The Palms’ guest house.

The next day involved a visit to, firstly Beares Randfontein where I got to meet the lady who I believe deserves my award for being ‘The character of note” within the Beares/Lubners group, and that is Tracey Mallett, and when one combines this crazy lady J together with the other one, namely Adri Oosthuizen (Manager of the Randfontein Lubners store) in one town, you must know what happens!! J

But seriously, these two ladies put together a day for me which I thoroughly enjoyed and involved, as usual, me talking to a large group of guests and once I start talking, as you should know by now, I never stop! So to Tracey and Adri and your amazing staff, you have mine and buddy’s heartfelt thanks for arranging a magic day.

This is outside the Lubners store.

The 2 crazy ladies J of Beares and Lubners -Tracey with the yellow jacket and Adri on the left of the photo, with Captain Appel of the Krugersdorp SAPS – FCS unit and ‘that other guy’.

And Tracey with the rest of her friendly Beares staff.

So thanks Tracey and Adri and the rest of your great staff for arranging such a magic day for ‘Buddy and Me’ in Randfontein, we look forward to seeing you again, hopefully on the next project?

In Randfontein I was told of a major paedophile case involving another 72 year-old savage who has raped and sexually abused something like 170 odd children, the case is on going and can you believe it, “because of his age he has been released and is under ‘house arrest’, unbelievable. (See details of the other 72 year-old savage’s case in Upington – blog 35) So I will be following both of these cases with great interest and will be provided with up dated information by a friend in Randfontein and Upington.

Thursday being a public holiday found ‘Buddy and Me’ attending the Carletonville Round Table golf day which was held at the ‘Goldfields Country & Golf Club’. This was attended by 128 golfers and as usual I did a lot of talking, my favourite passed time. The day was a fantastic success and a good time was had by all.

 Three of the Tablers of Carletonville braaing boerewors for the golfers at the 6th hole, the guy nearest the camera is the Table Chairman Michael Dos Santos who together with his lovely wife Nadia home hosted me for the night, so many thanks for your fantastic friendship and amazing hospitality.

The Tablers and me proudly displaying the Carletonville Round Table banner.

Friday morning found ‘Buddy and Me’ visiting only the Lubners store in Carletonville, the reason being that the Beares store unfortunately burnt down a couple of months ago and so I was devastated to discover that a visit to what has always been one of my favourite Beares stores to visit was not possible, also to add to my woes, the man who has always made my visit to his Beares store such a memorable one, namely Leon Visser the store manager was away on leave, but Leon, Noreen did an outstanding job in arranging a magic day for ‘Buddy and Me’.

So meet the staff of Beares and Lubners in Carletonville. If you look carefully you can see some of the fire damage in the top left corner of the picture above the Beares sign.

Saturday was spent doing the finishing touches to Buddy’s new and improved rear tails lights which my son-in-law Zack helped me fit in Pinetown (Actually he did all the work, I mostly watched and passed the beers). So my work on Saturday involved fibre glassing the edges and painting them.

 (Me hard at work sanding the fibre glass, a really lousy job I must tell you) and then the finished product

 At least the cars following me can actually see the lights now, they are really bright especially when compared the miserable things which were on previously.

Of course Saturday afternoon, after all the strenuous work, I had to pop into the local ‘joint’ and watch the SHARKS kick the Bulls butts over a couple of cold frosties, an absolute pleasure!

I had intended camping at the near by Boskop Dam for the weekend, but Michael – Chairman of Carletonville Round Table’s – mother and father, Hannetjie and Cisco Dos Santos believed I would probably end up freezing to death and so insisted that I spend the weekend in their incredibly lovely garden cottage, so Hannetjie and Cisco you have my sincere thanks for your friendship and hospitality.

And so ended the first week back on the project for ‘Buddy and Me’ and it has been really wonderful being ♫On the road again♫. I got to meet a number of extremely interesting people in the form of prosecutors, police officials and social workers who provided me with an abundance of information on what is happening with regard to child rape in the area, much of it being repetitive, but was also presented with a lot new and quite mind boggling information.

One person in particular was the Senior Prosecutor in Carletonville, Ms. Elize Smit who confirmed that child rape is occurring at a shocking rate, but believes that because they have adopted a ‘zero tolerance’ attitude they are experiencing a very high rate of convictions, music to my ears. She also provided me with the incredible confirmation that she has charged a mother of a small child under section 54 of the Sexual Offences Act 32/2007 (mentioned earlier in this blog, regarding the requirement of any person who is made aware of the rape of a child to report it) so I will be waiting with baited breath to hear the outcome of the charges, as she is, because she confirmed that she has also not heard of anyone being charged under this section.

I would like to leave you with this quotation which was recently in the ‘London Times’ “South Africa is the only country in the world where affirmative action is in favour of the majority who has complete political control.

The fact that the political majority requires affirmative action to protect them against a 9% minority group is testament to a complete failure on their part to build their own wealth making structures, such that their only solution is to take it from others”. Interesting!!

Don’t forget that the TygerBear symposium on child abuse will be held in Cape Town on the 11th and 12th of August at which there will be a number of talks being given by specialists in the field of child abuse, oh yes and I will also be talking on the information learned during my research on the subject of child rape. So contact TygerBear on 021 – 931 6702 / 6717 email: tygerbear@telkomsa.net (www.tygerbear.org.za) and book your ticket or to offer your assistance with organising teas etc.

So with that I will bid you all farewell for now, so keep well, stay safe and of course keep all children safe, ciao for now.

Caring regards from

Buddy (The Beach Buggy)

I have decided to dedicated this blog to the storey I was told and the details of which were forwarded to me in a devastating email I received from a gentleman in Upington, who has asked me to publish the details of his story in order to ensure that ‘justice’ is achieved for the savage who has created chaos in his life. So here then is Hynie Dick’s storey. I must warn those with sensitive stomachs that the contents of this storey are graphic and so be warned!

My story of horror: Hyney Dick

Greetings Steve

I hereby wish to tell you my life-experience with Jakobus Dick, also known as uncle “Baai”. This conversation will  also include my past with this sadistic paedophile as well as my nieces and aunts life with him and the present situation.

THE PAST: MY LIFE IN NABABEEP

My name is Hyney Paul Dick and I was born and raised in a small town in Namaqualand called named Nababeep. We were seven brothers and two sisters. As my common sense developed, I was informed that uncle Baai is my father’s brother and he was staying with my family long before my time. To me, my brothers and our friends he became the uncle every boy could only dream about. To us, he was like a 365 days “Santa Clause” entertaining us, giving us money and I remember that as boys, on every Sunday, he took us for barbecue in the veldt with his car. In fact he never missed a church service. Wearing suits that other men also could only dream of. For me as a boy, I couldn’t wait for the next Sunday, because we knew that we were going to drive in his car (BMW) for a barbecue, it was fun.

As we grew older, he started taking us to Upington, to visit our grandfather during holidays. In Upington he took us to the river and we swam all day long. There were always other boys with us. He even took us to his workplace and showed us everything there. As I grew older, I realised that this man had extreme power in our town. He was buying year in and year out brand new BMW’s. He was administrating the local club, cinema, swimming-pool, etc. in our town. If anybody wanted something, they first had to ask him for permission. I remember how he took us to the swimming-pool, but he always expected from us (myself, brothers and our friends) to swim naked or with only our underwear. For us as boys it was fun, because he was entertaining us for free. As technology developed (television, video machines, video cazettes, etc.) he showed us movies on the video machines, but at night he never allowed us to watch movies with him. Only our friends were allowed. Obviously we became jealous. When we got the chance, we went through his video cassettes and it was there that we found out that he was in possession of pornographic material. As boys when he was at work or in church, we even sometimes watched these pornographic movies. We were interested in this, because to us it was something out of this world, we never though that people made this kind of movies. I remember that my youngest brother was his favourite of all of us as brothers. He has passed away since, I cannot remember whether it was 1986, 1987 or 1988, but all that I remember was that I was at Secondary School.

But a horrific story unfolds regarding this uncle “Baai.” I still remember the name of the boy, his name was Gerrit and he was one of our many friends. Gerrit informed his parents what this man was doing with him and other boys. We heard that he sucked the boys and then put there sperm in a cup and then mixed it with cool drink and then drank it. We also heard that he asked the boys to masturbate and bring their sperm for him. We heard about the pornographic movies that the boys were watching with him, all of that for money and gifts which he gave to the boys.

I remember how my father, who has since passed away, wanted to kill him with a pickaxe because he was devastated as a father of children. The police came and took him away. The community of Nababeep were shocked about these events and charges regarding this against a once very powerful man. Meanwhile three of my brothers left school. We, and not him alone became the talk of the town. I by then unconsciously became like a protector to children. Today, as a grown up I realise why I was always protected and devoted over other children, especially poor children.

I finished matric and studied a career as a teacher at the Upington College. My parents, including some of my brothers and one sister left Nababeep and bought a house in Upington. Uncle “Baai” was out of our lives. I always wondered what happened to him after the bomb exploded in Nababeep. As a young man I started realising that he must have sub-consciously shattered us as a family. We do not operate like other families. We do not even call each other, wish each other or even support one another; we are just brothers and sisters. The most important, namely LOVE is missing.

In 2005 I met Suzetta at a local church in Upington. We fall in love, got married and started renting a house in Upington. She is also a teacher and both of us had the same passion for children. On the 15 January 2009 our baby girl was born and I was in seventh heaven. I have already had “adopted” Sindoline since 1997. We were living happily together as a family.

 

MY NIECE, WHO WAS BORN IN UPINGTON: HER AND HER ONLY DAUGTHERS’ NIGHTMARE WITH HIM:

In 2006, out of the blue this man returned to Upington. He was not the same man I used to know. He was reflecting the opposite as the man I used to know. The first time in 2006, when we met again, he was a dirty, old man wearing ragged, dirty clothes. There was no BMW. He walked and later on started riding a bicycle. He always came to our place asking for food, money and newspapers. By then I had not yet informed my wife about his past. Actually, my wife who is a passionate Christian felt sorry for him and even I did, so we always helped him with what ever he needed. He started telling us stories about how cruel my niece is treating him since his return to Upington, stories about abuse and abandoning. His last story to us regarding my niece was that she apparently sued him and that it meant that he had to sell the family house in order to pay her. He told us that he legally put the house in my eldest brothers name to avoid losing his only property that could be used to settle the suing amount which my niece wanted. The house was always on his name. My niece meanwhile has left with her daughter because of this house of horrors. I even gave him a vicious dog which I got from a colleague at my school because I felt at that stage he was living alone and the dog could protect him. My colleague never told me the history of the dog. It was a monstrous dog. If I had known before I would have never given him the dog and neither would I have taken the dog from my colleague… because this dog was also used in this horrific storey.

We heard stories that the dog had savagely lacerated people and even my niece and her daughter. He and the dog were starting to terrorise the community. I was devoted to my family and I never followed up these stories of him. To be honest, we believed him. Today I feel disgusted that he had twice, actually three times fooled me by means of his lies. In August 2010, I contacted my brother and asked him if we could stay with uncle “Baai”, because we knew that he was staying alone. By then we were also afraid of the dog. My wife and I had problems with the landlord from whom we rented. They expected us to take care of their elderly mother in their house and we came to the conclusion that we as teachers with a new baby, will not be able to adapt to their request due to the fact that their mother was some kind of serious depression patient and we had our own responsibilities. The situation has become intolerable with our landlords. So we moved to the house of horrors, dog or no dog. He was excited that we came, telling us that he is an old man. He sometimes gets sick and so now there were people who could take care of him. The house at that staged was in a worse condition than a dumping site. We started to clean and made small renovations. On our second day there, the neighbours warned us about the boys that are always coming to visit uncle “Baai”, immediately I became suspicious. The third day, that monstrous dog attempt to bite my baby. That very minute I arrange that the dog must be put down, he was furious with me.

That same year we started meeting with my niece who is working at Checkers in Upington. She knew that we were staying with uncle “Baai” and that she could guarantee that we would not last longer than a month with uncle “Baai”. We wanted to know why and than she started telling us the horror of horrors that she actually made through with him. His sadistic, unthinkable methods of intimidation have destroyed her life. Boys, which were suppose to be in school, are on a daily basis there inside his room. Police are coming to the house continuously and taking the boys back to school. Crime started to be the order of the day. Her plates that he brakes, interfering with her daughter, the blood on the table, the disgusting dirty, bloody blankets which he threw in the bath, making the bath black with dirt. Arranging with his victims to break into the room that she and her daughter occupied and stealing her and her daughter’s things. By then, she also informed me how my aunt and her family, who lives in Kraaifontein (Cape Town), was horribley destroyed by this man. From my niece’s story, I realised that there is no way that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Because when he left Nababeep and what ever happened to him, he went to live with his sister. And there, he continued with the boys of Cape Town. My niece told me that my aunt even had to sell her house in order to get rid of him and the wrongs that he had done to the boys. I was shocked. The last straw was when he put his dog (the dog which I gave him because I was worried about his safety) onto her daughter when she came from school and the dog bit her  flesh from her body and when people called him he laughed about the incident. That was his final attempt to destroy my niece and her daughter. Strangers took the girl to hospital. She will never be able to wear shorts, mini skirts or even swimming close due to what uncle “Baai”did. Pieces of her flesh were still lying where the dog attacked her. He also set the dog on my niece and the dog almost tore her one breast off. Some of his victims were also severely bitten by his dog. What a fool I was to think that he was an old man who needed protection.

THE PRESENT SITUATION: 2010-2011 AND THE EXPOSION OF HIM:

The above mentioned was informed to me, when my family and I already were living with him. (August 2010). Even some of the inhabitants of the community also informed us all about what my niece already told us. I asked them why they have not reported these horrors to someone, regarding this man. The answers they gave me rather made me more depressed.

When we started living with him, we noticed his abnormal lifestyle. First, he watched television with us, but he would always sit with his face almost against the television set. I asked him why does he watch TV like that and he told us it is because he has very bad sight. I told my wife that I do not believe him.Why? Because the next abnormal thing that he did was “walking” in the darkest of dark nights with his dogs, every night. We started to notice that he “walks” with the dogs almost the same time every night and then he stayed away for hours. The same pattern happened during the day. Every morning, almost the same time every morning (except on Sundays), he left the house to go to town, today, I know why. He was busy with “fishing children.”

Very soon, I have analyzed that everything that is happening to us, happened in the same pattern, he destroyed my niece and her daughter lives. He started by intimidating us by means of his septic life style, then he started with Sindoline (my adopted daughter). He had even made remarks on her personal hygiene. One night, she came to me with tears in her eyes telling me that uncle “Baai” told her that she does not wash herself thoroughly and that he wants to bath her to make sure that she is clean. My wife and I were furious and we disciplined him regarding this matter and he started breaking our kettles and our plates, etc. Meanwhile I arrange extra safety measures with my mother in law regarding Suney (my two year old daughter). She is the person who takes care of Suney when we go to work. Both my wife and I are teachers. During all of this horror that we went through with him, I continuously warned him that as a teacher I will expose him if he ever touched another child again. I could never allow him to know that he was actually slowly, but surely intimidating my family. We were starting to fear him. We were literally living in constant fear, because everything that is happening to us happened in the very same manner that it happened with my niece and her daughter. My mother in law regularly informed us that when we were at school boys were still coming to the house and so I started to do my own investigations and I started reporting these things to the police. (October 2010) I even went to the Child Protection Unit. But nobody ever followed up my information. November 2010, one of his victims came to this house. He actually told us his own horror experience with this monster. It is sad, but when I asked him why did he came back if what happened to him startled him. He said, he needed the money because the girl he is making a living with, has a girl (10 years old), who is mentally and physically ill and she has needs. To be honest even today I blame the system for that innocent 10 year old girl, who never will function normally, especially not in a normal household in the middle of a squatters’ camp. I promised the victim that I will help him no matter what. To me, his circumstances were critical. I called the police. Two young policemen came and took his statement but again nothing happened and so I actually started to give up. Luck was always on this monsters’ side. Meanwhile he was making our lives’ hell on earth with his sadistic methods. In April 2011, a policeman came to me regarding the selling of his car. I was interested and we started to talk business. I continuously asked him if he does not know someone to whom we can go who will actually do something about these cases against this monster. He also never gave me a solution at that stage. Then also in April 2011, when I came from school, my mother in law informed me that a boy came here because uncle “Baai” asked him to do so. She told the boy that he was not here, but in town and that he should leave and rather come back later when he will be here. That boy never left, because while she was busy hanging the washing, he entered the house and stole three cell phones of us. My baby was in the house alone with that thug. I was furious. I called the police, they never came. I realized and know that this monster was organizing with these boys to steal our stuff in the same manner he did with my niece. I was desperate for help so I called the policeman who sold his car to me. I told him that the monster I was talking about was living with us, actually I informed him more specific. The next day (It was on a Friday) he picked me up at school and I took him to possible victims (according my own investigations).We went to those boys’ school and they actually, for the first time, started speaking. They informed us that they knew about other boys also. That day we went to all of the victims and one by one the horror unfolded. One specific boy told us that on the Wednesday the monster told him that we as a family are disturbing him in his ways and means of operating. The same policeman and three others came to this house of horrors and found lots of pornographic material in the room he is occupying. He was arrested that same Friday in April 2011.These boys told us that he somehow manage to overpower them and then he shows them porn and then he sucks them and then he drinks their sperm in front of them from a cup. The same dog is used to attack if they do not want to abide. One boy even told us that this monster has such a demonic impact on him that before he knows he returns to him because he was always in need for money and this man gave them money and gifts in return for there sperms. Shocking thing is that the amount of money that he gives depends on the quantity of sperms that they give. This means that the more money they want, the longer this monster abuses them in one day. I was shocked, because the whole story is the same of what happened in Nababeep in the eighties. The Sunday an investigating officer came and took my statement. The investigating officer stayed in contact with me regularly and meanwhile more and more victims were found. In fact almost every street child in Upington was victims. By than I realized that his going to town every day was to “fish” and abuse. The investigating officer informed me that he found a person from Cape Town who told him that he was staying with the monster in Cape Town. He was a victim also. According to the investigating officer, this person confessed to him that uncle “Baai” had abused hundreds if not thousands of children in Cape Town also. Sometimes he had to watch. Now I know that after all these years, he never stopped. I also started to understand why my aunt, where he was staying by then, sold her house in order to get rid of her brother. One thing I do not understand is why she had not reported him to the police. I think I will never know. Meanwhile the investigating officer informed me that this monsters’ case is getting bigger and bigger on a daily base. More and more children have been found. Then something bad happened.

One of my brothers passed away. My eldest brother asked me to organise the funeral at my own expense. My life had come to a complete standstill. Death and a monster. I decided to book myself off for the rest of this quarter at school. Things were getting too much for me. On the 26 of April 2011 the monster appeared in court. I was relaxed and did not expect that he will be released out of prison. The commander of the child protection unit also assured me that his case will just roll over and that he has to apply for formal bail application. I did not even go to court, because I had been guaranteed that he will not be released. By 14hoo that same day I received a call from my sister who told me that uncle “Baai” was released on bail of R300, 00, without any bail conditions. I was shocked and furious and I phoned the commander of the child protection unit. She was also shocked and told me that she do not know what went wrong. Like I predicted he arrived here with shopping parcels and he was furious because he knew that I had exposed him. His anger was devastating and such a way that my wife, Sindoline and my baby got panic attacks, especially my baby. From a physical point of view I really do not fear him. He is an old man and I surely will be able to defend myself and my family, but am scared of his methods of sadism. I know that he will do anything to hurt us or even to kill us. I could not take any risks. I asked my wife to leave with the children and I will leave later because I even fear that he will destroy our belongings. That night I told him that what he is doing is wrong and that I will never stop until justice is done. I even told him that indirect am I also busy to actually help him because he cannot continue living this lie he is living. He is destroying innocent lives, including the lives of his own family. He did not listen to any reason. That night the police came and they actually referred to him as a “senior citizen.”I will never ever forget those two words and how those two words brought my life to an end. I then knew that his intelligence was superior and that he could use that as a mechanism to free him for ever.

I was still busy to organize my brothers’ funeral. On the 28th of 2011, I went to court to ask what happened. They could not give me a satisfactory answer. They told me to draw up a petition list. I did that all day long and all night long. I took the list back to the court. Meanwhile this monster is making our lives hell and as if nothing has happened, he just continued with his life in the very same manner as before. He is still going to town everyday.  I have realized that he really has no hart or feelings. On the 4th of May 2011 a boy came here again and informed my mother in law that he came on uncle “Baais’” request. After the boy told me everything, I took him to the commander of the child protection unit. His statement was also horrific and his statement revealed that he abuse the children even in public, I was shocked. That same day, I went to the funeral place and there the manager, who is also involved in the SPCA, told me that uncle Dick was also there to look at my brothers’ body and that she knew him. She started to inform me that she knew him due to the fact that they as the SPCA had a complaint once regarding his dogs. They followed up the complaint. Took away dogs and dogs or a dog that was pregnant. The puppies according to her were severely deformed. I believed her because I recall that since we moved there people will always scold him that he is “fucking” his dogs. Now I know that it was not only children whom he abused, but animals (dogs) also. At that stage I froze and again I realized that this man is actually very sick and dangerous. More than I originally thought. I also remembered that when we moved here, there were lots of dogs, but they were always bleeding from there noses and they had warts all around there mouths. Everything started to make sense. I cannot remember the date, but he was re-arrested after the funeral on the 7th 0f May 2011. On the 17th of May 2011, I went to court after the investigating officer told me to do so. When I arrived at court he had just been released. He was a free man again, a man who is, according to me and the investigating officer, one of South Africa’s most dangerous men. I could not believe my eyes. On 18th May 2011, he dumped all his bloody, dirty and septic blankets in the bath which we as a family use. Now I understood why my niece told me that she and her daughter never used the bathroom with him. I took pictures of the mess and called the police. The police came, I explained to them again. He resisted arrest and was taken away. Four or five hours later, he just came walking here again, despite the fact that I asked Colonel Fielies to please keep the man in custody. The situation has become very dangerous for us as a family. That day, he started to increase his sadistic attempts on us, messing with bloody entrails on the kitchen table and licking the kitchen table with his tongue. We have always feared for germs or bugs etc especially because of my baby. On 20th of May 2011, I noticed bees everywhere. The bathroom is on the stoop and the swarm of bees were specifically there. At first I thought that a swarm had maybe moved to the house, but I was wrong. I sprayed doom and then the bees minimised. I then saw a Marshmallow (sweets) on his fridge. I noticed that the bees were actually swarming towards the bag. I confronted him and warned him that his intimidation must stop but he obviously denied everything. When I removed the bag, the bees’ disappeared. Someone in the community informed me after I told him that it was farmers do to attract bees for pollination. They use sweet stuff in their fields. Now he is using nature to make our life hell. On Saturday 21 May 2011, I saw how my two dogs were bringing in dead birds and doves into the house, tearing the birds apart and when I went outside, dead birds and doves were lying everywhere. Even on the neighbours’ roof also. I just knew that he was behind this. These things never happened before. I even informed the police about that. I went to court and got an interdict against him. Meanwhile I had gone to “Die Gemsbok” and “Die Son” for help. These are small newspapers. It was in “Die Gemsbok” where I saw your name and your work. I was desperate and so I called you, I cannot remember precisely when, but I called you. I just saw in my diary that I contacted you on the 26th of May 2011. From the 4th of May 2011, I have decided to record my daily horrors in a diary. There must be someone that can help. On Friday, 27th of May 2011, afternoon, I woke up from the smell of smoke in the house. Again I confronted him. Again I called the police and I had to beg them to just remove this man from the premises. The next day, he just came back. On Sunday, the 26th of May 2011, my wife informed me that my sister told her on Mxit that she and my youngest brother also had been molested by him. My youngest brother died since. I felt like killing him once and for all, because now I realized that in Nababeep he must have destroyed us as brothers and sisters. I suddenly realize why we as a family do not even really care about one another. There is not really love. We are just brothers and sisters. Even today, I have not told my mother yet about what my sister informed my wife about and she accordingly informed me. My sister even told my wife that someone noticed this monster in the early hours (03h00hrs) on Sunday morning in Progress, near my mothers house. I remember how I once scolded him by saying that he is not just a paedophile, but also a vampire. On the same Sunday, someone informed me that he was sitting in church as if he is the holiest of holy people. I could not believe that people are still falling for his betrayal towards mankind. That same day the investigating officer told me that he had a warrant for his arrest.

My life has totally been shattered. I even wanted to file a divorce and I even asked my wife to take the children and stay with her mother but she refused. She is still supporting me, but I can see that even she is starting to fall apart. We have been emotionally crushed. We are financially crushed and Sindoline and Suney are not the same anymore. We have even asked churches to pray for us. We cannot move because we are financially ruined. I cannot even buy Nappies for Suney or even food for us. I cannot even afford an e-mail to you, but I will try. To me, everybody just listens, and nobody helps. Above all the car that I bought broke. I must go and try for a loan in order for us to survive. Personally, I realized that the devil really does not admire me and my wife. Obstacles are coming from nowhere. But we will not allow Satan to beat us with this round. I believe that very soon we as a family will be back on our feet again. These chains just have to be broken.

I admire the investigating officer for his devotion towards this case. I once asked him “How do you feel, when listening to all of these horrors?”He answered “I try my best to cope.”I am doing this to save any more children from harm. I do this to hopefully repay my family for what this man has done to almost every member of his own family. Within nine months he destroyed my life. I am doing this for the people of the Northern Cape, Upington and in-fact the whole country. This man is evil, and I believe that he is contributing to the creation of a new generation of paedophiles in South Africa.

Above all I am doing all this to protect my own daughters from harm. To be honest especially my baby, named Suney Dick. Why?, because she is different. I was there when she was born. The doctors in the theatre told me that she is different than millions of other babies. At first I thought that something was seriously wrong, just to find out that my wife and I had been blessed with an angel. According to the doctor she had been born with certain emotions they observed the very first minute of her life outside her mothers womb. I could not believe it. When she was three months old, she started to speak sentences. When she was twelve months old, she told me and I quote: “Daddy, I am going to be a scientist one day. I am going to America and work at NASA and I am going to build spaceships.” We believe she is an indigo child. She even calls this monster an old stupid paedophile. I just want Suney to become a scientist. Some learners in grade 12 sometimes do not even know what or who they want to be, she knows. I just MUST apply to her dreams. People do not understand that I am desperate for justice. I cannot allow this monster to destroy her or my family. I am broken, but I WILL FIGHT UNTIL THE END. All these obstacles will pass by.

He has been arrested again on Monday, 30 May 2011. I think he is currently in Upington prison. The investigating officer informed me that he will appear in court on 02 June 2011. I went to court just to found out from the head prosecutor that he is due to appear in court on the 08th of June 2011 and not on the 2nd of June. That day, the car broke. The devil really dislikes me. Personally, I think he will walk out of court again. I just don’t know anymore. I want to leave this house, but I am unfortunately stranded without the proper finances. I don’t think I will survive one more of his unthinkable sadistic methods. Everywhere I go, I just hear about his rights, noboby cares about my and my family’s rights. I am sick and tired of this. I do not even know if I am aloud to inform you, because the monster has rights. I don’t care anymore. I also have rights. Actually I fear that he his going to poison us. He did poison the birds and the doves.

I hope I have remembered everything I needed to tell you. Steve, I believe you do understand and I also believe that you will listen, and will do something to help us. I am even willing to tell our story to the international community as well. I just want to save every child that I can save from this monster. If you need anything from me, just contact me. I will help where ever I have to help. To be honest even airtime has become a luxury to me.

Steve, thank you in advance and I hope to hear from you very soon. Blessings to you and may God always be with you.

Yours sincerely

Hyney Dick
