Yellow is for danger

Barely one week into my South African sojourn and knews of the terrible impact of crime. My father's best friend, Oom Oostewald - who he met as student in England - his daugther was shot and killed today. Louisa, like her father a doctor, was gunned down in Mamelodi. The details of the murder are not clear yet, but she was car-jacked on her way to work at this Hospital in Pretoria/ Tswane's largest township.

In he 80's another doctor (and also an outsider to Mamelodi) was brutally killed in the area, Dr. Rebeiro. He also tried to help the community but was killed by the South African security police.
