A woman, who goes by the name of Nampree on Twitter, accused the two popular DJs of allegedly drugging and raping her.  She says further that she is not clear on the details, but Dj Fresh and Euphoric reportedly laughed about it. Nampree took to her Twitter account to accuse the duo.

“I was completed drugged, I don’t whether you BOTH raped me or 1 of you did & you later laughed about it the next morning saying we (me and 3 girls) were so drunk we kept blacking out but nasidlwengula…” she said.

The girl additionally claimed to have been a virgin before the incident.

DJ Fresh, a 947 radio presenter, has since come out to defend himself. He acknowledged that he was aware of the accusations but said they weren’t true.

“I am aware that assertions have been made about me on social media and I understand that this is often the price of being in the public eye. The fact that these claims are untrue and from an unknown source, does not make them less hurtful,” said Fresh.

He also pointed out that he takes the issue of Gender Based Violence seriously.

“Furthermore, I am deeply concerned that spurious allegations about GBV ,especially as it is one of the most significant societal challenges in South Africa, undermine the gravity of legitimate incidents, and impact the urgency with which they are attended, Dj Fresh commented.

However, according to Twitter users, this wasn’t the first such incident involving the duo.

A Strandfontein family man was left distraught after a blackmailer allegedly hacked his social media accounts and threatened to leak them if he did not pay R3 000. The man is 51 years old.

The distraught man says he sent the sexy pictures to his wife when he was separated from her for over a month, but now he is being unfairly labelled as an abuser by the hacker. According to him, the hacker even created fake newspaper articles and threatened to publish pictures of his penis, but he refuses to be extorted.

“We have been married for 30 years and we are still mal vir mekaar (crazy for each other),” he explains.

“It all started in December when I got a work contract and had to be away from home,” he says.

As they were away from each other, the man opted to have intimate chats with his wife which also included sending intimate photos, including his nudes.

“I didn’t even get to see my wife on Christmas and so we had intimate conversations and sent each other some pictures of which some were nudes.

A team of researchers led by University of Pretoria Professor Lyn Marie Birkholtz have made significant strides in fighting Malaria. The team found that chemical compounds present in Anti- TB and Cancer medications have the potential to stop the cyclic transmission of Malaria.

The two compounds are currently undergoing clinical tests. Professor Lyn Marie describes the Malaria causing parasite as a ‘shape shifter’ as its ability to quickly adapt to the human host’s body is what makes breaking the cycle of transmission a difficult task.

“This is the first time that these compounds were shown to have activity against malaria parasites and since they are not toxic to humans, they show the potential to be developed as antimalarials for both the treatment and elimination of the disease,” says Birkholtz.

The parasite uses the human host as a point of entry into mosquitos once again so as to transmit Malaria to other human hosts. Preventive measures are the most commonly used weapon against Malaria infections. However, research now aims at preventing the movement of the parasite from one host to another.

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) aims to eliminate malaria in the region by 2030. For this goal to be achieved, medical interventions need to extend further than regular artemisinin treatments. Artemisinin is originally derived from the wormwood herb and has the ability to kill the parasite throughout all stages of its lifecycle. Overuse of this chemical has however led to resistance from the parasite.
