TO WHOM MAY READ THIS

This is how the Road Accident Fund (RAF) are looking after their Claimant’s and Breadwinners.

It is not good enough that my electricity was cut off on the 06 August ’16. I was told to go to the City of Cape Town. I duly went with all my paperwork and I am now, officially, ‘Indigent’. My electricity was switched back on 03 October ’16.

Now to get to the above attachment. A Sheriff of the Court delivered these papers regarding my house. Yip, pay up or I loose my ‘castle’.

Where to from here!!!

This is the RAF refusing to pay out the monies they owe me. My good money I have paid out for +-9 years for my garden man, maid, swimming pool services, wheelchair repairs etc., plus other debts that they owe me for and counting. This money OWED would save my ‘castle’ and my family, from being destitute. I have HIT rock bottom!! I have NOTHING left. At this stage a bottle of pills or a razor blade, looks awfully inviting.

This MONEY THEY OWE ME has OBVIOUSLY gone TOWARDS LINING THEIR BACK POCKETS. (This is after all another glorified, government department).

Of course don’t forget, I am a liar, thief and a forger.

With much love,  DI COLLEY

Following on from my previous emails.

Of course, NO conclusion reached with regard to the Road Accident Fund (RAF) paying me any monies, owing to me.

I was reading an article last evening as to all the reasons for the unlicenced vehicles on our roads today (excluding buses and taxis). It reminded me that My vehicle licence is due for renewal in a month or so. That is +-R700.00 I don’t have and will definitely, not be able to pay!!!

That makes for an additional unlicenced motor vehicle on our roads today. (Yes, my vehicle is serviced regularly and is in a road-worthy condition). In this case, it is another Government Department (RAF) that is making this, a sad reality for me. (We all know how Government Departments operate, don’t we)!!!!

Approximately 4 months ago my vehicle was off the road for two months. (I could not afford the repairs). My thanks to a well-known, reputable company who came to my rescue. (I have Not paid them yet and they will most probably try and ‘reposses’ my vehicle. Still owing +R2000.00). During this period I needed to go to N1 City urgently and having no support ie family and at the time, my one friend was not available to drive me to N1 City, I decided, bus or taxi it would have to be. (I knew that it would be too far to push myself in my wheelchair, due to declining health). I duly wheeled myself to the bus stop along Monte Vista Boulevard and lo and behold, not only did the bus not stop when they saw me in my damn wheelchair but, two taxis Did Not stop either.

By this stage a couple of the ladies at the bus stop were  quite agitated as of course, they were now late for work/appointments etc. They decided to take matters into their own hands and virtually stepped in front of the next taxi to make sure it stopped and we could all get on.

The driver and assistant were having none of this and threatened to run over the lady, standing in front of the taxi. At this stage I decided to call it a day and thanked all the kind ladies and retreated to a safe distance and went home, rather dejectedly.

That ended my sorry saga of attempting to catch a bus or taxi, be independent and ‘vehicle-less’.

It Really Does Happen. Buses and taxis will Not stop for disabled people!! Their wheelchair takes up additional space and it just “takes too $%&# long”. (Taxi driver’s words).

So, thank you to the Road Accident Fund for a valuable lesson learnt –

            There is definitely no Space nor Time for
            disabled people in our beautiful city,
            Cape Town


           We should also thank the RAF for another
           soon to be Unlicenced Vehicle, on our cities

PAY UP the money that you OWE.

I re-iterate, this is how they, the RAF – LOOK AFTER THEIR INJURED CLAIMANTS and the BREADWINNER!!!!

Thank you for reading.

ROAD ACCIDENT FUND (and the Saga Continues)

                 TO ALL WHO MAY READ THIS

NO conclusion reached with regard to the ROAD ACCIDENT FUND (RAF) paying me any monies owing to me.

The attached is a gift from the City of Cape Town informing me of my impending “darkness” in my castle.

If only they would re-imburse me all the monies I have paid out over the years, this could/would be avoided.


Thank you for reading.

The Road Accident – How they Screw You

The Road Accident Fund – How They Screw You

I am not looking for sympathy but, merely justice and payments from the ROAD ACCIDENT FUND.

I was involved in a serious, life-altering motor bike accident on 03 July 2005. To be polite I will call him ‘idiot’. This ‘idiot’ reversed, in the middle of the road, into me and unfortunately been a narrow two lane road, I had nowhere to go. It would have been considered a hit and run but, fortunately, witnesses gave chase and bought him back to the scene of the accident.

That is where this ‘idiots’ story ended and my ‘new’ life began.

My injuries were life-threatening having sustained a broken pelvis, broken hips, my left elbow was ‘detached’ inside my arm and my left wrist was broken in 2 places. (I Am left handed). Nerves were severed in my right leg, my knee was smashed and I had a deep gash in my upper thigh (groin area), that went from back to front. It was only upon speaking with witnesses who confirmed, that I had been unconscious when they stopped and of course, internal bleeding.

Five Months In Hospital and 7 operations later, I was left with a numb leg (due to severed nerves) and am partially confined to a wheelchair. I wear a brace on my leg which thankfully enables me to walk some short distances. My left arm, hand, wrist and fingers do not ‘work together’ correctly. 

If you can imagine walking for 10 years dragging a numb leg fitted with a brace, using your hip to propel yourself forward, that is me.

My left arm is still damaged and likewise as my leg, has given me endless trouble, over the years. It was mentioned by a specialist that it would have been kinder had I lost my leg as I would not have (during the course of the last 10 years) damaged my spine and hips etc., by walking, the way I do.

My accident occurred about 15h00 on that fateful day and I arrived at Panorama Hospital at 23h00. Thanks to the dedication by the paramedics and God, I arrived alive.

I have been at times, through the 10 years, able to secure work but, it did not and does not provide a steady income to survive on. Unfortunately in South Africa, nobody wants to employ a 58 year old disabled woman. Due to the pain experienced I can only sit for short periods of time but, I still answer advertisements from companies offering employment, for 1/2 days.

Prior to my accident I was a fit and healthy individual. I had just started a new job where I, at the end of 2005, would have been made partner of said company. I had worked and studied for so long to reach this stage in my career, to have it all taken away by an ‘idiots’ stupid actions, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Due to the nature of the work, I was not able to continue.  

I took great joy in being outdoors – hiking, camping, walking, swimming, riding my bicycle, playing league tennis for a club, loved gardening. Any sports/activities outdoors, I was your person.

Fast forward to today, 10 years later :-

For the last seven years the pain has slowly increased throughout my body. Every joint, every muscle screams in agony. I was in denial for many years with this all-consuming pain until one day in my doctors surgery, I broke down and cried that I just did not want to go on living, with this pain. I went to a Neurosurgeon, specialists and a Pain Clinic who did assist me, to some extent. 

I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis, Arthritis and chronic pain, Fibromalygia, all due to the severe trauma my body suffered, from my accident. My heart condition due to added stress, has taken a rapid turn for the worse.

Unfortunately the costs are too exorbitant for everyone’s pocket, mine included to pay for treatments, for these diseases.

Where has this left me today:-

Mounting debts –

1.  Bond not paid

2.  Medical Aid not paid

3.  City of CT not paid 

      They will cut me off in a couple of days, which in turn means no

        telephone, alarm, water would be a trickle).

4.  Telephone not paid
5.   Cellphone not paid
6.  Other debt incurred, trying to eek out a living
7.  Not enough money to feed myself or my children
8.  Vehicle repairs (I need to get to the shop as the nearest Pick n Pay is

       to far to wheel myself).

9.  Pharmacy account not paid (medication only).
The Agreement signed and agreed upon by myself and the ROAD ACCIDENT FUND – they are supposed to look after me.


1..  All claims signed by parties, for services rendered

       1.1. Garden services, maid, swimming pool services,

              dog walking etc,

2.  Company invoices 

      2.1 Alarm, bond, medical aid etc.

      2.2. Will not pay for wheelchair repairs

As the CLAIMANT and BREADWINNER in My family, they are By Law, required to look after me and pay accordingly.
