Pea­cock is a para­medic at­tached to the South African Na­tional De­fence Force Pres­i­den­tial Med­i­cal Unit

I re­mem­ber he used to call us and say, “I’m in the mood to speak Afrikaans now. Come and sit here.” And he would speak Afrikaans and then he would laugh at peo­ple who didn’t un­der­stand and say, “Hulle ver­staan nie wat ons nou sê, nê? [They don’t un­der­stand what we are say­ing].”
