Editor’s Letter — 18 May 2018

Rudie Fourie’s story about the stick that stabbed into his ribs and lung after the vehicle he was a passenger of rolled on the gravel road, made an indelible impression on me.

How many times in my life did I drive on dirt roads with a car full of boys? How many times do we talk about the roads that are being scraped with the banks on each side of the road that are constantly expanding?

We are grateful with the Fouries that Rudie is alive and recovering well.

It was a busy week with the SPCA and Exxaro’s cat project, the wine festival, the Cross Country’s 2nd league, Mother’s Day parties, Mogol Rugby, the tragic death of beloved resident Debora Pretorius, the wonderful (and often ungrateful) work that nursing staff performs daily was honoured on International Nursing Day and locally, Sr Salome Prigge of Mediclinic Lephalale was awarded for being the best.

The terrible story of the deterioration at Witpoort Hospital, the billions and billions of unpaid bills and the thousands of patients and staff suffering as a result, is astonishing.

As Langa Bodlani rightly says – it violates the residents’ right to health.

Last but not least – be sure to purchase Mogol Post and see who entered our selfie competition in cooperation with Studio First.

Thanks to everyone who has already enrolled in the first week of the competition, we are anxiously waiting for more photos!

Warm greetings until next week

— Leoni
