We run a self funded bird/parrot rescue centre NPO and require land in KZN Midlands/Ashburton/Merrivale/Hilton. Buildings not essential but if there is a dilapidated building we are prepared to repair it. Our "buildings" are free standing raised wooden cabins, so no plans necessary. Gas ablutions we provide. We intend to instal solar panels, grow vegetables, and create the sanctuary our birds can be protected in, as they have been for the past 4 years. We have been let down on a lease to buy on a pre-subdivided piece of land and time has run out. We have a small deposit, and intend that the monthly 'rental' be paid to the conveyances to be deducted off the ultimate purchase price. We are not looking for short term. This is a lifelong commitment as a registered organization. If necessary we are prepared to lease land (with water/borehole) and instal a prepaid electricity meter in the cabins. This is very urgent. The well being of our Endangered species of wildlife depend on how quickly we are able to obtain a willing lessor/seller. We ARE nonprofit and do not fundraiser, so every cent has to work for the animals and for the humans. Please, this is very urgent. We were let down over the weekend we were supposed to move into our new premises (2ha vacant land with borehole water) on 28/29 May and the well being of our birds is now of paramount importance. We are willing to pay a deposit to secure purchase and monthly rental of around R3000 negotiable for the land. PLEASE.... Our organization is called Small Fryz Bird Rescue and is known countrywide. We subsidies our costs by making and selling renowned life enrichment products for companion animals in captivity.

'Trusted’ domestic held for stealing 2016-01-14 10:08

Pietermaritzburg - A family's trusted assistant has been arrested after allegedly stealing more than R80 000 worth of jewellery and electronic gadgets over a few months.

Donnette Fry, from Athlone, said the most devastating part was when they allegedly caught her “best” assistant on camera stealing from them on the day of her mother’s funeral.

Now that the assistant, Siyabonga Mkhwanazi (24), has allegedly been caught and questioned by the family and police, the family believes he may be part of a syndicate involving local pawn shops.

“We would notice little things missing from the house, things like cables and games for the X-box,” alleged Craig Fry.

However, Fry said when he returned from Zimbabwe on December 23, his wife Donnette told him that her wedding ring was missing and their assistant had not returned to work.

Fry said he concocted a plan to catch the alleged thief “in the act”. The couple sent Facebook messages and texts to him saying they had his Christmas bonus and needed him to return to work to fetch the money. When Mkhwanazi arrived last Thursday the couple were on their way to Donnette’s mother’s funeral.

Fry said before they left to go to the memorial service, he set up a small camera in the house to record what happened.

A man is seen moving inside the house on the recording made by the camera.

He said when they arrived after the funeral and watched the video, they immediately called the police who searched Mklhwanzi’s room where they allegedly found some of the Fry’s belongings.

The family also recorded a video while police searched Mkhwanazi’s room and pockets. On the video, it shows police removing a gold watch and a ring from his belongings.

Fry added that the family were “absolutely shocked”.

Mkhwanazi appeared in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday this week and was remanded in custody until his bail hearing on January 21.

Fry said among the jewellery stolen, the family’s external hard drive, laptop and video editing equipment was also stolen and was believed to be pawned at a local pawn shop.

“The police said they would also investigate the pawn shop because in order to pawn goods, one must produce their ID and other documents.”

Police spokesperson Major Thulani Zwane confirmed that a case of housebreaking and theft was opened at the Townhill police station.

“It is alleged that a domestic worker broke into his employer’s house and stole jewellery,” said Zwane.
