The Democratic Alliance’s nasty campaign to discredit me remains, well, nasty! I hope that you are shocked at this. I’m posting nothing else this morning. I want you to all, please, give this your attention.
It was absolutely wonderful how everyone came together to help a schoolgirl desperately in need of help; bringing toiletries and secondhand clothes etc. I was told that she cried with happiness when shown just a photo of today’s donations (she’ll receive them on the weekend when she gets new school shoes and takkies).
It was one of my most beautiful moments the past year because we were a community, not individuals. I believe that only as a community can we survive the even tougher times coming our South African way.
But DA Councillor Peter Myers (a member of the Knysna Mayoral Committee) has deliberately reinterpreted it as something awful. On his Facebook post last night, he described me and the charity drive as: “HIS RECENT APPEAL FOR MONEY FOR A ÇHILD IN NEED’ MAY ALSO BE A SCAM – A WAY TO ENRICH HIMSELF.”
It’s no coincidence that Mark Allan, the awful man I consider to be the DA’s propagandist, said something similar: “He is befriending yet another teenage girl and using it to promote himself as the concerned and conscientious member of the community. This is so wrong.”
Mark Allan started this way back in 2013 when, in one of his regular, insane blogs about me, he tagged it with the following keywords: “Child abuse in Knysna the Garden Route, Kiddieporn, Paedophiles, paedophilia, Adrian Forbes-Wilson.” In the blog itself, he said, “”…despite your obvious and very public concerns about the welfare of disadvantaged children, your coverage of two recent child porn cases was sketchy at best.”
I wrote an open, sincere letter to Knysna and accompanied it with ’30 Ways You Can Help Knysna’. It should be impossible to reinterpret the good intentions but Mark Allan did, dismissing it for several reasons, some illogically being because i never discussed “two girls who were callously murdered”, “abuse against women…” and “paedophilia busts”.
I posted an old poem of mine. I knew that it would be controversial, particularly to Christians in our community because I used Xmas and an Evil Santa to ram home the point that we live in an evil world. In it, my Santa had bad intentions towards kids but I had the tooth fairy step in and chop his dick off. I used wicked humour to highlight child abuse. Mark Allan, instead, ran a campaign to discredit me as it was proof that our community isn’t safe with me in it.
Mark Allan has broken the Protection order I have against him so many times that I’ve lost count… but the dirty Knysna SAPS wouldn’t arrest him, despite me appealing to several Station Commanders in succession… and now he’s left the country where he continues to be a cyber troll supporting DA posts against me (it’s thus questionable that Knysna Tourism, where i exposed so much wrong by our town’s bad leaders, bought Allan’s business before he left – considering they receive public funding, that would mean taxpayers’ money was used to buy a private business).
Mark Allan is represented in court against me by Advocate Julie Seton. Seton is married to a DA politician who was on the Knysna Tourism Board of directors during that questionable period. Julie Seton has been supportive of Myers’ defamatory posts… actually she’s been supportive of much against me… as an advocate involved in many court cases against me in the lower courts (where an attorney would normally appear) yet simultaneously part of a propaganda campaign against me. Not ethical at all. Not legal at all.
Martin Hatchuel, a tourism writer whose done work for Knysna Tourism and previously ran a business with the current CEO, jumped in to say, “You could construe the publication of that poem as a call for child abuse.” It’s made more ironic that Hatchuel’s step-son, Kyle Maspero, had recently become one of the more infamous murderers to come from Knysna. It’s possible that he was lashing out at me for reporting on it but Hatchuel has spat more nasties about me and the tourism connection is tangible.
Baden Hall, the ex-DJ from Knysna FM, who supported the ex-CEO of Knysna Tourism, Shaun van Eck (who was found guilty on 4 charges of gross misconduct but instead paid R270 000 after signing a secrecy deal), has been a regular detractor of mine. With reference to me and court cases (involving me and Knysna Tourism connected individuals) he said, “If I were the parent of impressionable children, I would be more than a little concerned.” Hall has also claimed that he’s a plaintiff in one of 8 more cases to come against me (they know I have no money, so flood me with crimen injuria charges, civil suits and applications under the harassment act). I believe that their goal is conspiratory in nature, intending to stop me blogging about maladministration and crime in our town of Knysna.
Hatchuel, Hall and Allan often hung out on the same web pages, bashing me on many matters.
Back when Ingrid Erlank was the editor of the Knysna-Plett Herald, a DA politician, without proof, asked her to investigate me for child crimes. This was the same time Mark Allan started his nonsense. She found it outrageous. I ask her to investigate and in clearing me she would expose how dirty the DA’s propaganda gets. She wouldn’t write the story, saying even though it was untrue, it would only damage me because some people don’t remember the facts, just the claim. But believe in transparency and I know who I am so I say it here. I say it because I’M ANGRY AND I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THIS CONTINUING POLITICAL BULLSHIT. That DA politician was also associated with Knysna Tourism. I won’t name her because the only way I can prove it is if Erlank admits it on a witness stand. Erlank seems to be looking for anonymity after political pressure seems to have forced her out of a job after she was criticising the Knysna Municipality. That full story still needs to be told. Hopefully, Erlank will be brave enough to do so one day. Or I have to make a safer Knysna environment for her to be able to do so.
The truth will come out, one way or the other.
The constant negative association with me and children is blatant. Peter Myer’s has chosen to climb into the same leaky boat.
This ongoing theme by DA supporters with ties to Knysna Tourism, the organisation I exposed for abusing public funds, must be considered as an organised plan to discredit me. After all, they are well aware that my Love Knysna Projects has made poor kids and young adults happier. That project doesn’t happen without volunteers, mostly moms of Knysna. No matter how false their statements are, it damages gaining volunteers.
DA politicians such as Peter Myers have not only been willing to defame me but associate with very questionable people. The latest hangout has become Knysna Knews which sprouts the biggest, easy to prove wrong claims about me. It’s run anonymously with the only original posts being DA adverts and long attacks against me. Just read this post and the comment section [update: he’s edited it] to fully realise how nasty it is.
Ironically, Peter Myers also said of my community page: “Love Knysna’ – by the way what a joke – he should actually call it ‘Hate Knysna'”
It’s Peter Myers whose been hateful.
Before he became a politician, he was the Chairperson of the Knysna DA Constituency. He’s supposed to be the moral compass. Yet he’s deviated 180 degrees, his defamation and childishness being supported by other politicians, DA constituents and people I’ve alleged are involved in the maladministration and corruption scandal.
The heart of the DA in our town is rotten!
Is there anyone in the Western Cape DA whose going to do something about it?
Why is it that the DA’s image is more important than justice? Or is there’s something more to it? Are the claimed clean audits actually clean? Is the DA supporting property developers over the public?
Does anyone care about our small town?
Ask yourself why so many people are trying to destroy me this past week? Why would they be attacking so hard, so viciously, so many times publicly? I’ve been threatened with arrest too.
I was a good citizen who risked much to gather evidence and submit it to Parliament, reporting these people hurting our town. Instead of fixing the situation, the DA’s response has been continuously dirty and vicious.
