in brief

While driving in Cape Town recently we witnessed a humane deed performed by a motorist. He stopped his vehicle in the road to pick up a tortoise which was trying to cross the busy highway and gently placed it on the side of the road away from the traffic. It’s nice to see there are people who care in this world! GLENDA, EMAIL With reference to Bunny Muncher (YOU Say, 15 October), all animals including rabbits and cows are sentient beings. This means they’re conscious, living beings who feel emotions such as joy but also pain, stress and anxiety. Because non-human animals are sentient beings we have a moral and legal obligation to respect their right to a life worth living without exploitation and suffering.

‘i want to look him in the eye’

IT’S been a long, hard nine years of watching and waiting, hoping and praying. Nearly a decade of pain and loss, anger and despair, of months and months spent driving around with a picture of his daughter’s alleged killer pasted in the back window of his car in case someone recognised him. And now, finally, Dries Venter has some form of closure – but the end of the nightmare comes with no happiness, just a sense of relief that justice may be done at last. “It felt good seeing him in ankle cuffs,” the 69-year-old says. “It’s a relief that he’s back in the country but now old wounds are being opened again. Wounds that had just started scabbing over.” Dries is the father of Andrea Venter, from Rustenburg who was murdered in…

conspiracy theories doing the rounds

QAnon This is an umbrella term for a series of extreme conspiracy theories. The basic premise is that the world is run by a cabal of Satan-worshipping paedophiles who operate an international child sex-trafficking network. QAnon supporters believe the cabal includes Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, the pope and the Dalai Lama. Members kill and eat their victims to gain longevity through a chemical in their blood. And US President Donald Trump was recruited by top generals in the US military to combat this group. Bill Gates The theory goes that the Microsoft co-founder and other powerful people are behind the pandemic because they want to profit financially from a vaccine. And Gates wants to use corona-virus testing to implant microchips into unsuspecting members of…

it’s personal! keep it that way

WHEN he heard about the Experian data breach, Tebogo Sehuma* had a strange feeling he’d be targeted. He’d been a victim of identity theft before and, just as he feared, it had happened again. Tebogo, who registered with Trans-Union after being scammed five years ago, was later alerted about unusual activity linked to his name by the consumer credit reporting agency. “They said there’s a personal loan application at a bank. I told them it’s not me, so the loan was declined,” he says. ‘Criminals can use this information to trick you’ But the criminals who’d used his personal information had already gotten away with fraudulent activity – when he later checked his credit report, Tebogo discovered he owed about R7 000 in store credit. He’s still trying to clear his name. “The worst part…
