Annual Memorial Services at Freedom Park and Voortrekker Monument - SADF Wall of Remembrance

Commemoration of this event could not have come at an opportune time, when Africa is commemorating Africa month wherein calls for unity, reconciliation and peace is continuously echoed.

It is therefore befitting that this gesture of unity and reconciliation is commemorated at this memorable month. ‘Forgiveness is a sign of strength not weakness, this memorial service ceremony demonstrate character and strengths on the part of former sworn enemies ‘ says Freedom Park acting CEO Ms Jane Mufamadi.

Representatives of the SA National Military Veterans’ Association (SANMVA), APLA Military Veterans’ Association (MVA), AZANLA MVA, BDF MVA, the (ex-SADF) Council of Military Veterans’ Organizations (CMVO) and MK MVA, together with one representative each from the SANDF and the Department of Military Veterans, will conduct a joint wreath laying ceremony at Freedom Park and at Voortrekker Monument on the morning of the 31th May 2015.

After the wreath laying ceremony in Freedom Park, guests will depart to the SADF Wall of Remembrance at the Voortrekker Monument Heritage Site through the reconciliation road which was officially opened by President Zuma in 2011 for the main event.

“This event further recognizes our painful past we all had to endure as a nation whilst understanding that the future ahead can only be better shaped through unity, national building and reconciliation. It also clearly illustrates our joint commitment to support our men and women in uniform who serve the country all over Africa”, says Major General (Rtd) Gert Opperman.

“We are humbled and indeed honored to share this sacred space with veterans from all sides of the struggle for freedom who chose peace and reconciliation to shape the kind of society we all enjoy to live in today. It is through their heroic sacrifices including those who paid the ultimate price that South Africa is free from all forms of oppressions today”, says Ms Jane Mufamadi, Acting CEO of Freedom Park.

Double Bunk in Caravan

With our family expanding, we faced a challenge of adding another berth in our caravan, but I did not want to make it permanent.
A couple of options are available, of which one is simply to add a bunk to the single berth. We however did not want to cause any permanent markings on the interior of the caravan .

Netdata + SNMP + Mikrotik

Always wanted to see my Internet line usage as a gauge without having to log into the router.

CasparCG Simple Playlist

It is possible to build a simple playlist as a rundown in the CasparCG client. It will very simply play each item after each other that are on the same layer. In this very simple post I show how to build such a playlist including the very important step of activating the OSC.

The Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation is how the client knows what the server is doing and then being able to send new command back to the server when a piece of media has ended to trigger playback of the next piece. For more details on the OCS, please see
