The Govie-ee: My Hell of a Life
by Jeff M. Maritz

Mike-ee is not your typical child.

When he was five, he saw things he shouldn’t see. His mother unwittingly planted the seeds of carnal knowledge in his pure mind. At age nine, he committed incest without knowing it was wrong. In 1967, at age eleven, he and his sister found their father beaten black and blue in their room in a run-down boarding house. All of a sudden, he was taken by authorities to Louis Trichardt Reformatory—the so-called Govie-ee—with his elder brother and sister. He had no idea why they end up there, and nobody would offer any reason. The Govie-ee was a hellhole. It brought out the worst in him…it tormented him…it took any innocence left in him. This is a true story.
