This is a follow-up to the previous posting which dealt with, among other horrors, a personal eyewitness account of racially prejudiced behaviour at the Kalafong hospital.
I’ve posted a video below for readers who may be interested in what the exterior main entrance of Kalafong looks and sounds like.
When one approaches any normal decent hospital one usually finds a signboard nearby which reads: HOSPITAL – SILENCE PLEASE! At Kalafong no such thing exist! If you happen to be waiting at the main entrance for 30 minutes or more, the noise caused by taxis and other vehicles incessantly blowing their horns can drive you quite silly!
The video also shows a short clip of an advert that you’ll find displayed all over Pretoria in areas that are frequented mainly by Black Africans. You’ll find millions of these adverts stuck on lampposts, street signs, walls, and so forth - in total contravention of the by-laws of the city that regulate outdoor advertising. It is a sure sign of the moral decay of the place.
Bear in mind that this video was recorded during a relatively calm time of the day. You should see and hear the chaos during peak hours!
NOTE: The comment section in the previous posting provides reasons why and how I ended up at the main entrance of the Kalafong Hospital. I definitely did not drive out there (30 km’s) just to make a video ;-)
