Breaking News: Grabouw's grandfather was arrested for killing a burglar who, according to him, threatened his wife and grandchild's life. Giel Fourie, 65, who has since been released on bail, spoke for the first time on the incident when he shot the burglar in his home kitchen. He and his wife, Susan, 62, were making pies in their Grabouw home on Thursday when a burglar jumped over their car gate. “We didn't even see him. My son has since dropped off our 11-year-old granddaughter at home, little knowing the burglar is already in the house, ”Giel says. "When my wife walked into the spare room, she saw the bench slightly crooked. The man was lying there all the time, hiding. " Susan yelled immediately, "it's the same man!" She recognized him because he also attacked her in the house three weeks ago. She was alone and he threw her down on the floor, threatened her with a knife and forced her to give him money. When Susan saw the burglar, she came up with a broom and called for Giel. The robber was trapped. He could not reach the kitchen door. Giel shot a warning shot, but that did not deter the burglar. He threatened Giel with a knife. “I shot him in the chest. I meant to shoot only once, but then pulled the trigger twice. " Giel must appear in court again on May 6.

South Africa Business Rankings South Africa ranks 94 out of 162 countries and territories according to their economic system. Economic Freedom of the World (EFW) index measures the degree to which the policies and institutions of countries support economic freedom. In 2000, South Africa ranked 46th in the world, which meant being in the top 30% of economically free countries. Not only was it high on the index, but it was rising, destined to be one of the world’s freest and thus most prosperous countries. U nfortunately, instead of building on its post-apartheid achievement, SA started sliding down the rankings and is now in the bottom 40%. This means that South Africans now have less economic freedom than they had gained by 2000. Sliding down the index condemns countries to lower incomes, greater poverty, more inequality, reduced life expectancy, fewer political rights and liberties and bleak prospects for the quality of life. However, Its Time. South Africans can turn it around. Watch this space come 2019! News Man
