Beryl Miller, administrator at Southern Suburbs Parliamentary Constituency Office
Themba Dlepu called at our offices requesting a letter to be published in the next issue of the Constantiaberg Bulletin.
On the evening of Saturday July 6, Mr Dlepu, his wife Faith Dlepu and four children were travelling in a Mazda 5 on the Spaanschemat River Road, Constantia, towards Diep River.
At about 6pm, a gentleman in a jeep travelling from the opposite side collided with Mr Dlepu’s car. It was pouring rain when the incident occurred.
Mr Dlepu was trapped in the driver’s seat.
A couple stopped and immediately assisted by calling the police and fire emergency services who arrived almost immediately.
This couple was so helpful and immediately took Mr Dlepu’s young children out of the pouring rain and put them in their car.
They remained with them the entire time while he was being removed (jaws of life) from the wreckage and transferred to Melomed in Tokai.
The Dlepus did not get the names of this couple and would like them to know that they are deeply grateful to the couple who was so kind and for comforting their hysterical children.
May God Almighty bless them abundantly, the Dlepus said.
Mr Dlepu said the assistance rendered so unselfishly by complete strangers has restored hope for our beautiful country that all people can live together and look out for each another.
A word of thanks to the traffic cops, paramedics, firefighters, police as well as Pastor Tsana Matakane and Mr. Nojekwa.
Thanking you on behalf of the Dlepus.
