DA calling for safety measures MONIQUE BASSON


HE DA is calling for extensive and improved safety measures to prevent people from jumping off the Van Stadens Bridge. This follows a day after the 86th person jumped from this notorious ‘Bridge of Death’ on Tuesday, October 9. The body of Wayne Wewege (28) from Port Alfred was found on Tuesday morning by police offices. According to Warrant Officer Marianette Olivier, a police spokesperson, members of the Thornhill Police Station noticed a stationary vehicle on the bridge at approximately 6am. After investigation Wewege’s body was found. According to a family member’s Facebook-statement, Wewege was missing since Sunday. It was the fourth suicide at the bridge this year. According to MPL Pine Pienaar, the measures that have already been taken, such as cameras to monitor the movement on the bridge, is clearly not enough. “More must be done to ensure that people cannot gain access to the sides of the bridge at any point,”

said Pienaar. Yesterday he tabled a motion in the Eastern Cape Provincial Legislature for a technical investigation into preventing further tragedies from happening on this bridge. Pienaar’s motion calls for the Department of Roads and Public Works to present to the portfolio committee within the next financial year a technical report and implementation plan of safe-guarding the Van Stadens Bridge against people taking their own lives. .The Van Stadens Bridge was opened on November 11, 1971. Just 12 days later, a Uitenhage man jumped to his death, and its reputation as the Bridge of Death grew from there. .Lifeline Port Elizabeth - 0 041 373 8882/3 / 0 041 373 8666 .Thornhill Police Station - 0 042 286 6203/4

Hoewel hul ‘brandweerstasie’ nie so groot en modern soos die meeste ander in die Oos­Kaap is nie en hulle ook nie met ’n rooi vuurwa spog nie, staan hulle geen tree terug vir enige ander brandweerspan wanneer daar opgetree moet word nie.Dié groep onverskrokke vuurvegters vorm die dryfkrag agter die vrywillige brandweerdiens in Gamtoos wat net meer as ’n jaar gelede op die been gebring is deur die stasie­offisier aan die KwaNobuhle brandweerstasie, Riaan Senekal, ’n nooddienswerker in murg en been.
