Boerewors adds flavour to Point Walter BBQ

ON A beautiful Sunday morning, a merry band of 50+ Rhodesians gathered at the far end of the Point Walter Park opposite the sand bar for a very pleasant midday bbq.

The smell of boerewors started drifting around the park as a couple of our Fremantle friends had to go off early.

Groups of friends soon congregated and before long the banter rose to a high level.

Everyone met everyone. Old acquaintances reunited, and, with the new faces, some new friends were soon made. Point Walter is an excellent picnic venue with much to see and do. The view over the river is great with plenty of water borne craft to be seen. The path leading along the shoreline was full of walkers and children and adults on bicycles. All in all, it was an enjoyable day out and for those who missed the bbq, make sure you diarise the next function and be there!

Kneecap shock for dad

THE parents of a Zimbabwean airforce officer killed in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are outraged that they were given only his kneecap for burial, a newspaper reported. The Independent quoted the father as saying that he was given a saucer containing what looked like part of a kneecap and told this was his son, 27-year-old Flight Lieutenant Evans Kadyauta.

"I know death is there... but you can't say that 'your son has died, there is a knee-cap, ' then you run away. It is bad. Very unacceptable," said the father, Mike Kadyauta.
