All I can see in the pics are holes in the leaves and what appears to be a green caterpillar on the soil but it is way out of focus. If it is a caterpillar Bt (Bacillus thuringensis) is what you want to use if it is available in South Africa. Otherwise use what ever is available for caterpillars.

Whatever that is it has only had a go at the leaves, it doesn`t seem to have damaged the radishes. is it worth killing?
