Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 27 June 2013. 05h00. O, well, at least I had some lighter moments on Wednesday with this pathetic threat by Chris MacPherson.

Some sms harlequinade:

Me, at 07h43:

Mnr MacPherson, ek lewe in absolute vrees sedert jou dreigement gistermiddag. Ek moes kalmeertablette neem. Asb moet my nie moer nie!

A reader, at 08h39:

… ek het lanklaas so lekker gelag! Dink ek het nou eers kalmeerpille nodig om die voortdurende lag te STOP!

A reader, at 08h54:

Ag nee foei, laat los die arme drommel. Hy weet sweerlik al klaar nie waar om sy kop in te steek nie. Ten minste, ek HOOP so!!

Me, at 09h36:

Mnr MacPherson, my vrou gebruik tans ons klein grys Fordjie. Moet haar nie voorkeer en slaan nie, dis NIE ek in die kar nie. Dankie meneer.

A reader, at 10h09:

Poor MacPherson. Perhaps he should just retire. As long as he is around no DA candidate gets my vote.

A reader, at 10h11:

Threatening violence? Just how dumb are councillors in Oudtshoorn?

Theuns Botha, at 10h13:

Ek stel regtig nie belang in jou kinderagtige boodskappies nie. Stuur jou kindertuin kak vir iemand anders.

(What!? YOU Theuns!? Given the personal violence stories you’ve told ME over drinks!? Ye gods…)

Me, to Theuns, at 10h14:

Sort jou patetiese raadslede eerder uit as om my lastig te val.

Theuns, at 10h16:

Delete my net van jou sistermpie af asb.

Me, at 10h18:

Vergeet dit, jy’s te belangrik!

People who threaten violence are usually from the lower end of the gene pool.

Except people like MacPherson, of course, and Theuns: they represent the virginal DA, and act rationally and correctly at all times, and in the very best interests of the people.

Is just, well, I’ve never been able to work with people who want to donir other people.

It’s, uh, pathetic.

People who threaten personal violence are usually, not always, of course, and very probably excluding DA politicians, not particularly bright.

And considering the execution and management of the “Oudtshoorn take-over”, with the DA councillors and their leadership advisors “intelligence” is not a word that comes to mind.

Have Oudtshoorn governed by such!?

Nooitgesiennie!

Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 26 June 2013. 05h45. The man all Oudtshoorn DA councilors look to for support and political strategy and initial legal direction, Chris MacPherson, yesterday accosted me at the entrance to the municipal wing where the Mayor’s media conference was held:

Ek sal jou dood donir. Ek sal jou kry waar jy ook al is en al die kak uit jou slaan. Ek sal jou moer.

Spoken like a true Broeder from the Apartheid Era. I don’t know whether the lad was a “Broeder” as in “Broederbonder”, but he was in the personal service of the then Transvaalse Leier van die Nasionale Party.

A kragdadige chap.

Omies met bolkeile. Ek voel vir hulle soos ek voel vir omies met T-hemde met ander mense se gesigte daarop.

And MacPherson is to be feared, mind; I’ve known a few such men. Threats from Apartheid Suid Afrikaanse Weermag trained characters are not to be taken lightly.

MacPherson threatened that he would assault me if even he finds me in the street somewhere.

He added that he would find me where I may be and “donir” me.

I admit that I am pretty fearful.

MacPherson claims to be a man of his word and he did poke me in the chest while delivering his threats. Who am I to doubt his resolve!?

MacPherson is upset because I called him a “political whore” in some script.

Well, I wanted to know from the aggrieved councilor… Of how many political parties had he been a member?

I’ll tell you: National Party; New National Party; Democratic Alliance; ANC; Cope; Democratic Alliance.

A political whore.

Nothing wrong with being a whore of some kind, I don’t think. We all have to make a living.

The event took an even more sinister turn when the people I was talking to at the time of the unexpected outburst simply walked off without even a word to MacPherson: Johann Koegelenberg; Pierre Nel; and Johan Fourie.

MacPherson’s oaths and threats were heard by all the DA members congregated at the door and its immediate environment and not a single one of them even approached MacPherson to intervene during the assault.

Intelligent people usually do not threaten violence.

And I have had, to date, no reason to challenge MacPherson’s savvy. I am even amused by an ability to change one’s allegiance some six times in some 12 years!

There will be consequences for MacPherson, to be sure.

No fewer than four attorneys advised me, unsolicited and independently, to file criminal charges against MacPherson.

We’ll see.

At this time all I can say is that characters such as MacPherson should not represent people.

The man is clearly out of control.

Reports to the effect that he encouraged the approval of the budget during workshops is rife. Yet he challenged the approval quite ferociously in Council. He even claimed, and apparently continues at this time to claim that Oudtshoorn has no organogram or asset register. It is an offence punishable by imprisonment for a councilor to present false information to Council in order to influence a Council decision.

Something is clearly amiss in the DA in Oudtshoorn.

The ludicrous “take-over” of May 31 and the laughable consequences to date is something I personally feel ashamed of. Especially as I indicated to Koegelenberg, at the very moment DA Caucus Leader Wessie van der Westhuizen attempted the first inappropriate motion of no confidence on that embarrassing day, that this would not work; that an alternative strategy was called for.

Something is seriously wrong here.

Koegies? Johan? Pierre? Julia?

I can still believe what I observe given the weakness of your Oudtshoorn Caucus… and the quality of the “new recruits”; but Koegies, Johan, Pierre, Julia!?

Ag nee man.

Ag nee!

  1. Hardy Mills…..
    Oom PW Botha in die fleur van sy politieke loop aan, het ook aangehaal
    Jy skop nie n man wat lê nie………..

    Net as hy wil opstaan

  2. Verlinde is gemoer;Vermaak is amper gemoer;Beard is lankgelede amper gemoer nou wil Mcpearsone jou weer moer, wat is fout met jullle klomp kort manetjies?gaan gelykheidshof toe dan word julle almal ewe lank gerek dan is jullle gelyk.

  3. Drewan, ek stem saam mer Hardy. McPherson het in elk geval sy naam permanent bollie gemaak.
    Wat algemeen bekend is, dat indien hy jou gaan slaan, hy net twee keer gaan slaan
    Eers gaan hy mis slaan
    Dan gaan hy omslaan
    Slaap rustig,al die druk in nou op daardie ou met die “los politieke morele’ standaarde.

  4. When a hammer is the only tool you possess, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

  5. Drewan hier is vir jou advies van ‘n 5de prokureur. Los die kriminele klagtes. Daar is oorgenoeg ernstiger sake waarmee die SAP opgeskeep sit. Jy skop in elk geval nie jou opponent as hy klaar op die vloer le nie. As ek moes kriminele klagtes gaan maak het vir elke keer wat ek al gevloek en gedreig was sou ek pal en permanent in die aanklagkantoor gewees het. Weens die aard van jou publikasie moet jy maar sulke optrede verwag van tyd tot tyd. Vat die een op die ken soos ‘n man en beweeg aan. Sterkte!

  6. Wanneer ‘n persoon oorgaan na geweld dan het hy eintlik die geveg verloor. Tipies boere broederbond maniere. Ek het gedink hys ‘n Scot.

  7. Agbare Gorden April.
    Laat my dink aan Pieter MARAIS by Gateway in George nog, nie te lank gelede nie.
    ” eks nie julle baas nie, eks net in charge”
    My deur is oop 24/7
    ” maar as julle julle Somme doen, en jy sien n rooi geskryf, Dan moet jy nie bly word nie, dis nie kommuniste nie, ou,JY SKULD DIE GELD.”

  8. Sad is it not, the state of Denmark ? Keep us posted OO !
    Het Bredell al bedank of gedoog Zille hom nog ?
