Two days after burying her only child, a Scottsdene mom gave birth to a new baby.
Anthea Visagie welcomed her son Noah into the world on Monday.
This blessing arrived after she laid her 11-year-old son, Duran Visagie, to rest on Saturday.
Duran was left brain dead after being shot in the head during a gang shootout earlier this month.
The boy’s life support machines were switched off a day after the incident which occurred in Scottsdene, while he was on the way to a shop to buy a bompie and a packet of chips.
Two suspects were arrested for his murder.
Trevano Lodewyk and Dimitri Wence made their second appearance in the Blue Downs Magistrates’ Court on Monday where they indicated that they had not appointed lawyers and would be applying for Legal Aid.
The prosecution will oppose bail and the matter was postponed to 9 November.
Duran was in Grade 5 at Brooklands Primary School in Northpine and his oupa Piet Visagie said he was looking forward to meeting his baby brother.
Anthea, 34, and Noah was discharged from Tygerberg Hospital on Thursday.
The infant weighed a healthy 3.1kg at birth, says proud grandmother Debra Visagie.
Debra says strangely, little Noah was born at 3.25pm, the exact same time that Duran was shot.
She says on Monday Anthea was feeling very sick and was rushed to hospital.
Her blood pressure was sky high and she was immediately taken into theatre where she gave birth.
Oupa Piet says he kept busy by painting Noah’s baby room blue: “Duran will always be number one, but we feel very happy for Anthea’s new baby.”
On Thursday, community members rolled out the red carpet to welcome Anthea and Noah.
Debra says she had a dream about Duran where he hugs his little brother tightly: “He looked so happy and at peace.
“To me, that is a sign that he is in heaven.”
