Magda Moos has laid a charge of crimen injuria against me.
Many of you will know and like her through the Magdaleentjies Pre-Primary School which she owns. I did too (and showed interest in the school by popping by several times, introducing others to it, donating school socks and vegetable seeds). She is also the head of all the Community Policing Forums which is likely why the Knysna SAPS (no fans of mine) accepted her complaint after I took a photo of her in the street yesterday.
What you may not know is that she left the ANC to join the DA constituency. She presented herself at the meeting I had with minister Alan Winde and DA constituency Chairperson, Peter Myers. She, along with them, promised answers to my Knysna Tourism queries. She, like them, lied. She, along with them, has refused to provide the mp3 recording of that meeting. She has chosen politics. She is part of the cover-up.
This is distressing to me as Magda was a person I always wanted to hug (and did). Politics in Knysna sucks! Why can’t people simply avoid conflict by choosing to be transparent?
Crimen injuria is a crime under South African common law, defined to be the act of “unlawfully, intentionally and seriously impairing the dignity of another.” Does taking a photograph of someone involved in politics count as that? Or is it to do with the situation I explained above and the email I sent her 11 days ago?
“You have betrayed Knysna and lied to me. How will I ever trust you again?
You’ve done it previously with the CPF but I will not let it pass without question now that you’ve done so politically as part of the DA Constituency of Knysna.
You were at that meeting with Alan Winde and Peter Myers. You promised to get answers but you lied, like them. Furthermore, you have chosen not to ask for, and deliver, the recording of that meeting even though you said you would.
You switched from ANC to DA which would be fine alone (i heard that the ANC treated you badly) but when you add up the many Boards you are on, it doesn’t add up. There’s no way you can efficiently fullfil all your chosen roles. The only way it makes sense is that you are networking…
Unless you choose to show that you’ve followed a moral course, I’m adding you to the list of people who should be prosecuted for covering up what happened at Knysna Tourism. You are not allowed to damage Knysna for your self-gain, relationships.”
Her laying a frivolous charge against me is now a good reason for me to post those photographs.
