Dickason murders: Father of three slain girls ‘may soon return to SA’

Graham Dickason has been through hell, and then some. As family support arrives for him in New Zealand, his future plans remain up in the air.

Dickason murders: Father of three slain girls ‘may soon return to SA’

The pain that Graham Dickason has suffered in the past week is unimaginable. The doting father of three girls returned home last Thursday evening to discover that his children had all been strangled with cable ties. The mother, Lauren Dickason, is allegedly responsible for this heinous act – and she remains in a psychiatric facility.

  • The eldest victim was aged six, and the younger twins were two years old.

Dickason murders update: Father Graham ‘receiving support’

The most traumatic of all ordeals came just a week after the family left mandatory quarantine in New Zealand. Looking forward to a new job in Timaru, South Canterbury, the idyllic life built by the Dickasons had been shattered by a moment of intolerable brutality – shocking both the island nation and those of us back here in Mzansi.

The triple tragedy has left Graham Dickason more isolated than he could ever have imagined. Health authorities in the COVID-zero nation are working on a special exemption for one relative to visit the grieving father from South Africa, allowing them to fast-track the necessary stay in quarantine – a move PM Jacinda Ardern has backed.

New Zealand stay now in doubt for tragic father

Staying in NZ no longer looks like a possibility for Mr. Dickason, either. The orthopedic surgeon is understood to be weighing up a move back to South Africa, after initially putting everything into his emigrational ambitions.

The Herald, a Kiwi national newspaper, confirmed that Graham Dickason is ‘receiving heaps of support’ from several dedicated teams, and the relative sent over to support him has safely arrived on New Zealand’s shores.

“We, as police and Victim Support, are continuing to support Graham through this tragic time. I also know the South Canterbury District Health Board are also giving him heaps of support. He has a family member arriving into NZ to support him today… We have had approximately 30 officers on this investigation.”

‘Land first’: DJ Sbu tells peeps to get land and connect with nature

South African musician turned businessman is well known for offering his thousands of followers advice.

DJ Sbu wants people to fight for their right to land

The issue of equal land distribution in South Africa has been spoken about for a long period of time now and it’s one that Mo’Faya creator DJ Sbu wants people to start taking action.

Taking to his Twitter page on 20 September this year, the former radio host wrote that black people should be allowed to travel anywhere in the world. He encouraged black people to speak their home languages more frequently and get land because land feeds, clothes and shelters.

“Blacks are meant to live anywhere in the world as they wish to like our ancestors did 100s of years ago.”

“The more we are not aligned with our mother tongue and our original connection to nature, the more we are a detriment to ourselves. Our victory lies in uniting and aligning with our culture and nature. Land first. Because land feeds us, it clothes us, heals us, shelters us etc,” he said.

Here’s what Mzansi had to say:

@Lavistolee said:

“Yes, please. Our land so we can “earthed” / “grounded” back to our roots and reconnect with our true selves. Amen abuti, mina ngikuzwile!”

@LASI04341151 said:

“This Land issue must be talked about a lot because a black child continues to suffer. The land gap between blacks and whites is way too much.”

@Mbuyise50660169 said:

“100% correct Sbuda land first.”
