Going on holiday? Then don’t broadcast it to the world on social media. That’s the message issued by gardaí as summer holiday season begins.Home owners are being warned to take extra steps to protect their homes when they are away on holiday. This begins with social media. “Holiday season is upon us and often people post to social media when they are going on holidays, they check in on facebook at the departures lounge at the airport or they post holiday photos on Instagram,” said a garda spokesperson.“If you and your family are going on holidays then please do not announce it to the world. You may as well put a vacant house sign outside your house for burglars to take full advantage of.”Gardaí are asking the public to note the following home security tips when leaving on holiday:Do a thorough check of your home before you go and ensure that all doors and windows are closed fully and locked. Do not close blinds or curtains as your home will appear empty if they are closed all day and night. Set your house alarm. If you do not have a house alarm and are considering purchasing one then make sure it is monitored. This will ensure that your home will receive attention from Gardai if the need arises and it will give you peace of mind when you are on your travels. Set a light on a timer switch to go on at night time in one or two rooms in the house. Cancel any deliveries that are due and give a key to a trusted neighbour or friend and ask them to check the house and collect the post regularly. Have a car parked at your home in the driveway or at side of the house, somewhere it is visible from the road. Ensure that there is good lighting around your home especially at the rear of the property. Remove any spare keys you may have hidden outside your home. Keeping a spare key outside is never a good idea whether you are away on holidays or not. Document your most valuable items by keeping a note of serial numbers, photograph of item, guarantees and receipts. Ensure that your home insurance is active and that you have adequate contents cover. Notify your local Garda Station that you will be away and that your home will be vacant so they are aware and can patrol the area.

By Lucille Davie16 September 2013Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s recent book, 491 Days, Prisoner number 1323/69 gives graphic insight into what the apartheid government subjected her and others to in the 1960s and 70s.Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s recent book gives graphic insight into what the apartheid government subjected her and others to in the 1960s and 70s.Despite her strength of mind and fierce fighting spirit, she became extremely ill during her 491-day stay in prison, the result of long months of solitary confinement and the poor diet, which often consisted of porridge with maggots in it. She suffered with chest pain, palpitations, body spasms, haemorrhaging, loss of appetite and chronic weight loss. She even contemplated suicide.She felt particularly close to her jailed husband Nelson. In a letter dated 26 October 1970 after her release she wrote: “In a way during the past two years I felt so close to you. It was the first time we were together in similar surroundings for that length of time. Eating what you were eating and sleeping on what you sleep on gave me that psychological satisfaction of being with you.”Nelson was of course on Robben Island, where he’d been since 1964, after being convicted with seven others of sabotage in the Rivonia Trial. He was 52 years old at the time. Winnie was 36 years old, and had experienced many spells in detention, but the longest was 491 days. She had been picked up in May 1969, and spent the next 16 months in jail.Her prison experience brought them even closer . He wrote to her in June 1970: “During the 8 lonely years I have spent behind bars I sometimes wish we were born the same hour, grown up together and spent every minute of our lives in each other’s company. I sincerely believe that had this been the case I would have been a wise man.” He had spent several years prior to the Rivonia Trial in prison too.A wise man. And a combative spirit, still evident in her today. They both gave their souls and their love to the struggle.Read more on MediaClubSouthAfrica.com: Winnie’s pain and torture in prisonThe launch of the book at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory: Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s book now on shelves
