Does the Democratic Alliance (DA) exist to protect criminals? How many times will the DA take me to court in attempt to scare me into silence regarding their corruption? Why didn’t Premier Helen Zille and her fellow politicians thank me for bringing major corruption to their attention? My regular readers will know this corruption is 100% proven, involving DA councillors and DA ministers. If the DA practiced their good governance, accountability and transparency slogans, they’d surely have taken their photo with me and encouraged more citizens to step forward. Instead, they’ve acted in the most guilty … ‘Click here to read full article…’

Who are you? Two weeks ago, a Knysna citizen was illegally told by the Magistrate to leave the court room, stopping him from being an observer to proceedings involving municipal employees vs me (with one of the 3 lawyers against me being paid by the Municipality i.e. public money). I have never tried to make a circus of the court, never tried to get a crowd to attend, however, i appreciate that man’s effort to turn up out of his own interest as a concerned citizen. I don’t know his name but if he or one of his friends is … ‘Click here to read full article…’

In case you’re lucky enough to have never been inside the Knysna Magistrates Court, this is what one of the 6 court rooms looks like. Downstairs is normally reserved for small claims court and criminal charges whereas protection orders and civil cases are mostly upstairs. How it Feels in the Knysna Magistrates Court… At first, i was intimidated by the courts. After all, a stranger gets to judge what happens to my life. Magistrates are human too; some are fair, some are irritable, some professional, others unprofessional etc. Handing myself over to them, that loss of control, sucks…especially because my … ‘Click here to read full article…’
These cases involving me are getting more complicated in the Knysna Magistrates Court. Yesterday, March 22 2016, i was to face Advocate Julie Seton. In itself, that’s an interesting situation as Seton has represented several people against me. I claim that those cases are political and to shut me up. They claim that it’s to stop me being defamatory and that it isn’t political because it’s initiated in personal capacities. I tell you both sides, without arguing the merit as i have no intention of disobeying magistrates’ orders. You, the reader, can judge for yourselves where the truth lies.

Advocate Julie Seton and i have each made applications for Protection Orders against each other. Our first appearance, in this latest round of legal matters, happens today in the Knysna Magistrates Court. Her objection is to my articles about her on Knysna Keep which she considers defamatory. My objection is to her and her alleged associates use of Knysna Knews and other Facebook pages to allegedly defame me and hurt our town with false information. Rather than wait over a month for the first court date, i gave notice of anticipation of return date, essentially forcing the matter forward … ‘Click here to read full article…’
