News24.com | 1 killed, 13 injured in separate KZN accidents

A taxi roll-over on a dirt road in the Ncwadi area, KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday morning has left one man dead and eleven others injured.

Meanwhile, in a separate accident in Howick also in KZN, two men were injured following a collision between a bakkie and truck on the R617.

ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on the scene in Ncwadi to find a stationary taxi on the left-hand side of the road.

“One man was found lying near the vehicle while several other people were found walking around on the scene,” ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said on Saturday.

Upon arrival paramedics found that the taxi driver, a man in his 30s showed no sign of life and was declared dead on the scene.

The eleven other passengers that survived were treated at the scene for minor to moderate injuries.

“The patients were treated for their injuries and were thereafter transported to provincial hospitals for further care,” Meiring added.

In the second incident in Howick, ER24 paramedics, along with another service, arrived on the scene at 06:25 to find a small bakkie far off the side of the road.

“Two men, believed to be in their 30s, were found seated on the roadside,” Meiring said.

Upon completing assessment of the two men, paramedics found that they sustained minor to moderate injuries.

“The men were treated for their injuries, and the one man provided with pain-relief medication, before they were transported to nearby hospitals for further treatment,” Meiring added.

Circumstances surrounding both incidents were being investigated.

Sport24.co.za | Sharks’ first half blitz secures bonus point win over Blues

Cape Town – The Sharks secured back-to-back wins to kick off their new Super Rugby campaign after comfortably dispatching the Blues 26-7 at Kings Park.

The opening try was scored after just seven minutes, and came courtesy of a lost line-out from the Blues and some impressive play from the Sharks backs.

Lukhanyo Am put through the initial grubber, before Makazole Mapimpi kicked the ball on and collected it, throwing a deft little pass to fullback Aphelele Fassi who barreled over the line despite the attention of several Blues defenders for his first Super Rugby try.

The conversion was wide, but the Sharks stayed on the front foot and were soon rewarded with their second score of the afternoon.

After opting for a line-out rather than kicking at goal following a penalty in the Blues 22, the Sharks set up a short-range maul, and it was hooker Akker van der Merwe who made his way through the scrum courtesy of a powerful drive before falling over.

This time Du Preez added the extras to give the Sharks a promising 12-0 lead, and only some desperate defence from the Blues forwards prevented the Sharks from going over for their third try as they managed to hold the ball up six inches over the line.

As the first half wore on, the stifling Durban heat was also becoming more of a factor and play was interrupted for a water break to give the players a bit of relief.

It wasn’t long before the Blues found themselves under more pressure, however, and it eventually told three minutes before the break. Playing with the advantage following an infringement at the maul, the ball was shifted left and Du Preez all but strolled through a gap in the tired defence before adding the extras to put the Sharks 19-0 up heading into half-time.

The home side probably should have had their fourth try eight minutes after the break after a great run by Am down the right, but new arrival Curwin Bosch, who had come on for injured winger Sibusiso Nkosi shortly before half-time, couldn’t execute the final pass.

The Blues thought they had their first score in the 57th minute when flyhalf Otere Black dotted down after the ball was shifted through the hands from right to left, but TMO Marius Jonker intervened, ruling out the try after spotting an obstruction from the back of the scrum that started the move.

The visitors did have their try five minutes later, though, another backline move doing the trick as substitute Tanielu Tele’a found the gap and crossed the line to bring the deficit down to just 12 points with 17 minutes remaining.

The Sharks needed cool and calm heads but that wasn’t what lock Ruan Botha provided when he was sin-binned in the 68th minute for a cynical foul.

The momentum had shifted the Blues’ way now, but they weren’t able to make their one-man advantage count, and the Sharks managed to hold them at bay until Botha returned to the field.

And with the clock winding down and the result all but secured, the Sharks bagged their fourth try of the afternoon courtesy of an intercept from Bosch, who was able to run all the way home before Du Preez added the extras to make it two Super Rugby wins from two for the Sharks to kick off their season.

News24.com | Bonteheuwel reeling after 17th alleged murder of 2019

The community of Bonteheuwel in Cape Town is reeling from yet another murder in the suburb after a man’s body was found in a street with a stab wound.

An eyewitness told News24 on Saturday that the deceased was “violently stabbed with a trail of blood [stretching] about 100m to where he was found”.

Western Cape police confirmed that they were investigating the murder of an 18-year-old man on Saturday.

“The circumstances surrounding the death of an 18-year-old man are being investigated after his body was discovered in Taaibos Road Bonteheuwel this morning at around 05:15 with a stab wound,” the police’s André Traut said.

“If this is a murder, which assumed, it takes Bonteheuwel’s 2019 total to 17,” Bonteheuwel councillor Angus McKenzie said on Saturday.

Traut could not confirm the amount of gang-related murders in the area, due to a moratorium on crime statistics.

In January alone, police were investigating three separate gang-related incidents in the area in what was suspected to be a flare up of gang-related violence.

McKenzie claimed the millions spent thus far on the province’s Anti-Gang Unit had been “ineffective”.

He accused the ANC of prioritising “cheap party politics” over peace in the Bonteheuwel community ahead of the 2019 May elections.

“Those tasked to protect us seemingly don’t care that number 18 is rapidly becoming a reality rather than doing everything in their power to avoid it,” McKenzie said, referring to the next possible gang-related death.

“What more motivation is needed for the custodians of safety and security; the national police minister and the president to realise they are failing our communities,” McKenzie concluded.

He further appealed to the police ministry to deploy the army to Bonteheuwel, claiming the police had failed to fulfill their duty to provide safety.

Police Minister Bheki Cele has previously rejected calls to deploy the army to crime-ridden Cape Town streets, saying the army was not trained to deal with civilians.

He also said the rate of crime in the Western Cape had not reached the point that necessitated the deployment of the armed forces.

He told Parliament’s portfolio committee on police earlier this month that the Western Cape has received the most resources from his department since the launch of the anti-gang unit.

The DA meanwhile were campaigning for provincial police services in the run-up to the 2019 general elections.

Policing is currently a national mandate of the South African Police Services (SAPS). The setting up of a provincial police service would require a change in legislation.

Health24.com | Most nations may be rid of cervical cancer by 2100

Rapid expansion of HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening could eliminate the cancer as a major health problem in many countries by the end of the century, a new study claims.

HPV (human papillomavirus) causes most cases of cervical cancer, and the researchers determined that more than 13 million cases of cervical cancer worldwide could be prevented in the coming decades.

No longer a major public health problem

“Despite the enormity of the problem, our findings suggest that global elimination is within reach with tools that are already available, provided that both high coverage of HPV vaccination and cervical screening can be achieved,” said study leader Karen Canfell, of the Cancer Council New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

The authors of this first-of-a-kind modelling study on a global scale noted that in wealthy nations, such as the United States and Canada, cervical cancer is predicted to be eliminated as a public health problem within 25 to 40 years.

The researchers concluded that if high rates of HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening could be achieved in all countries from 2020 onward, there would be up to 13.4 million fewer cases of cervical cancer by 2069.

That would mean the average rate of annual cases worldwide could fall to less than four cases per 100 000 women by the end of the century, the level at which cervical cancer is no longer considered a major public health problem, the study authors added.

If high levels of HPV vaccination and cervical screening cannot be achieved globally, more than 44 million women could be diagnosed with cervical cancer over the next 50 years, rising from 600 000 in 2020 to 1.3 million in 2069, due to population growth and ageing, the findings showed.

Two-thirds of those cases, and an estimated 15 million cervical cancer deaths, would occur in low- and medium-income countries, according to the study published in The Lancet Oncology.

Large disparities between countries

In early 2018, the World Health Organization called for coordinated global action to eliminate cervical cancer, which is highly preventable.

“The WHO call-to-action provides an enormous opportunity to increase the level of investment in proven cervical cancer interventions in the world’s poorest countries. Failure to adopt these interventions will lead to millions of avoidable premature deaths,” Canfell said in a journal news release.

Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women, with about 570 000 new cases diagnosed worldwide in 2018. Of those, about 85% occurred in less-developed countries.

HPV vaccination can prevent 84 to 90% of cervical cancers, and there are proven methods to screen for and treat cervical pre-cancers.

But there are large disparities in cervical screening and HPV vaccination rates between countries, the study authors noted. In low- and middle-income countries, overall screening rates in 2008 were as low as 19%, compared to 63% in high-income regions.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently recommends routine HPV vaccination of girls and boys by ages 11 and 12, because protection is best if done before initiation of sexual activity.
