Guest : Richard Brussow

Motorists are urged to be vigilant, especially during the day and on weekends as
criminal syndicates become brazen in their attempts to seize vehicles using weapons.
According to statistics by the SAPS, each year over 16000 vehicles are hijacked from
motorists in South Africa despite state-of-the-art technology fitted by car
manufacturers, insurance and vehicle tracking companies to make it difficult for
hijackers to get away with stolen vehicles.
The SAPS figures showed that new models - under 10 years - make up more than 67.2% of hijacked vehicles. Older models aren’t spared either as hijackers sell them off as spare parts or are sold cheaply and used as local taxis in townships. National Hijacking Prevention Academy operations manager Melinda Brussow said Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal experienced the highest number of vehicle hijacking and that most hijackers used firearms. Brussow said Toyotas and Volkswagen vehicles were among the most hijacked because “there are many of them on the roads” and are easy to sell. Brussow said that most hijackings took place during the day or on weekends. Richard Brussow from National Hijacking Prevention Academy joins us on the line from

What You Need to Know About Antibiotic Resistance

12 February 2020 9:05 PM

Guest : Prof Marc Mendelson | Head Of Infectious Diseases at University of Cape Town |

Imagine you develop an infection -- anything from a typical urinary tract infection to
tuberculosis. Now imagine there's nothing doctors can do.
The discovery of antibiotics changed medicine in the 20th century. Today, they're
widely used to treat infections caused by bacteria. More than 150 million prescriptions
are written for antibiotics in the U.S. each year. But bacteria are starting to adapt to the
drugs and are becoming harder to kill. That's called antibiotic resistance.
