Traces of rats, cockroaches in Walmer food blitz

A video that has gone viral – of a girl in primary school being kicked, punched and throttled by a group of fellow pupils – is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to violence at Malabar Primary, according to some of the parents.

Concerns over hygiene and cleanliness at the Pick n Pay store in Walmer Park were raised by the Nelson Mandela Bay municipalitys deputy director of environmental health, Dr Patrick Nodwele, during a food blitz at the store on Wednesday.

A father accused of castrating and killing a lay preacher he believed had raped his nine-year-old daughter was denied bail in a packed East London magistrates courtroom on Wednesday. The man, who cannot be named to protect his daughter, cut a lonely figure in the dock as investigating officer Constable Lundi Nqwelo gave evidence for the state, which was arguing against the fathers bail application.
