On a positive note, members of Lenasia and surrounds along with emergency services united this weekend to rid the N12 Highway of famous rocks used by criminals which have lately caused accidents, hijackings and even calamitously claimed the lives of innocent citizens, the most recent being an elderly man known as ‘Babe’s Karodia’ , a resident from Lenasia.

The sunny afternoon of Saturday, 17 September, saw selfless individuals, young and old, fill up the boots of their vehicles to capacity with boulders, stones and rocks whilst clearing the road, hence making it a safer environment for motorists frequenting the highway. Although this may not completely stop thugs, it most definitely serves as a helpful deterrent against the rock throwing tactic.

Heads up to the people trying to make a positive difference in our country. You’re are the real heroes – ordinary people performing extraordinary acts!
