OUR CITY OUR HEROES

For their brave action on the day, both Bianca and henry will receive The Order of Valour which is the highest award the Welkom Publicity Association can bestow.

The Welkom Publicity Association Board has unanimously decided this morning that the two citizens who rushed to aid a badly injured police officer and one of the fugitives from Sunday’s shootout at the business complex at Craib avenue will receive the WPA’s highest award, The Order of Valour, for an act of bravery in the face of danger.

Assistant Pharmacist Bianca Jacobs at Frank Korb Pharmacy and Henry Swartz a Supermarket Assistant at the Save-more Spar went beyond the call of duty to administer first aid and keep both severely wounded patients alive until the ambulance with paramedics arrived.

For their brave action on the day, both Bianca and henry will receive The Order of Valour which is the highest award the Welkom Publicity Association can bestow. The other workers from Frank Korb Pharmacy will also receive a Certification of Appreciation for the role they played in assisting both Bianca and Henry.

According to WPA Chairman Brian Emmenis, “We plan to hand over these prestigious awards at a small function in the city. He further stated, “We are indeed very proud of these fine citizens. Riebeeckstad is a small community and it goes to show how these two citizens without prejudice helped both the saps member and the perpetrator. We need more people like this in our community.”
