Hoax Call Or Bad Joke Gone Wrong

As our hearts goes out to the family and friends of Jacintha Saldanha , a former nurse   at King Edward Vll Hospital who recently is believed to have committed suicide,  we at ET4G Ltd have chosen a special day 12/12/12 to post this message to the world community.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind ourselves that at various times in our lives, we might be vulnerable or weak in making the right choices and or decisions. For these reasons it is perhaps essential for everyone to develop strong ties with positive support network comprising of genuine family and or friends (if you don’t already have one).  


Others may find comfort through seeking and getting counselling, confiding and drawing support from your doctor, trusted life coach, the Bible or any other spirituality.... The list goes on.

For the benefit of posterity, we need not take our own lives regardless of the mistakes caused, even where stupid and expensive pranks are used. Particularly Christians, as the Bible tells us,“... your body is a temple” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20). When we are not at our optimum, wisdom, advice, knowledge and skills from our strong support network would be of tremendous assistance to us. We should also be willing to open up and not bottle problems in.


This is by no means blaming Jacintha for what it is alleged she did, but encouraging the rest of us to learn from this experience.

Usually good establishment would know when there has been a genuine mistake and would have reasonable sanctions in place or imposed, including a slap on the wrist.

Perhaps establishments should revisit their protocols and where necessary fortify their firewalls to prevent dry jokers from infiltrating.

R.I.P Jacintha Saldanha .
