South Africa – Dam Wall Collapse Kills Western Cape Farm Worker

Published

S.A dam

One moment, Barend Rood was helping to repair a dam in order to catch the rain bringing relief to drought-stricken Western Cape farmers, and the next he was dead, trapped under the weight of sand that had collapsed on him on Thursday afternoon.

“He was working on a ditch [next to the dam wall] and then the sand fell on him,” said Billy Claasen, councillor and founder of the Rural and Farmworkers’ Development Organisation.

“He was the man that paid with his life,” said Claasen.

Claasen said farmworkers do not regard the death at Uitvlugt farm, near Piketberg, as a freak accident.

They claim they had asked for a safety monitor, but had been brushed off and were told money would not be spent on somebody “who stood around and did nothing all day”.

Callie Steenkamp, director of Piketberg Sunrise Farms, which owns Uitvlugt, said he was not present at the time, but the farm manager had told him that Rood had been helping to lay pipes at the time of the collapse.

“We were repairing a dam and putting some pipes into the dam. And when they had finished excavating the dam wall and putting in a pipe, a piece of the wall fell in, on to the worker.”

Somalia: 14 Lawmakers flops impeachment move against President Farmaajo.

Published

on

An impeachment motion brought against Somalia president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has been dropped after the required number of petitioners was not met.



The main crust of the petition was because of international deals Farmaajo had signed with neighbouring Ethiopia and Eritrea. The issue of unilateral appointments in the army and judiciary was also highlighted.
