SPORTS MINISTER LAMBASTS BAFANA
BAFANA Bafana to get new name? Name them Bufoona Bufoona after the sport ubermeister, you know who, who belittled them on national TV. Has he played any sport in his life?
FERDIE KILIAN, UITENHAGE
OUR portly minister of naught…er…sport, instead of publicly humiliating our national sportsmen should inform us of his achievements in sports development. Or does he whisper that only in the ears of the international celebs he likes to hang with?
GT
SO our sports minister reckons he could have saved those goals scored by Nigeria. Put him in some kit and let some schoolboys practice against him. Would be a good laugh.
PETER
FAT Fikile, show some leadership qualities if you have any. You are now playing in the big league, not the youth league.
TOMMY
SPORTS Minister “Fickle” Mbalula is an A1 idiot. How can you insult a national side? Be humble in defeat. Did you ever play sport?
SPORTS FAN
MINISTER Ficks is correct . They are a bunch of losers. As for Moeneeb Josephs, he must never play for Bafana again. He is such a failure.
BRA TO
TO make matters worse, the sports minister should have added that Bafana Bafana lost to a Nigerian C team!
OBSERVER
UNTIL the fair disposition of the millions of rands is spent across the racial divide to develop all players SA soccer will be the shambles it is.
FRANK
BAFANA, no problem if you would just use the same team who played against Spain, then we would have a good chance to win.
SOCCER SUPPORTER
GORDON Igesund, you have played your part very well. To you, Bafana, pride of the nation, you have done your best. I wonder if the sports minister has ever been a player? Accepting defeat won’t kill us.

WHAT’S HAPPENED TO WOOD CASE?
WHAT’s happened about the Jason Wood case? When is the next hearing? A guy like that needs to be locked up for life.

JASON Wood’s case has been postponed to February 6 to allow him to apply for Legal Aid representation. Wood is accused of defrauding Nelson Mandela Bay residents of about R1.4-million. – The Herald court reporter Kathryn Kimberley

WOMAN CRITICALLY INJURED
WITH reference to the bump and hump accident that happened in Walmer. Boulevard on Sunday, the woman injured was critically injured and is in ICU. When is the council going to take note and remove these dangerous humps!

BRILLIANT COLUMN BY PIET NAUDE
BRILLIANT piece by Piet Naude regarding the lawlessness on our roads! Dare we hope that the powers that be catch a wake-up call and take action?

REPLIES TO READERS’ COMMENTS
DR GALLOWAY, no prisoner and no hate, simply fed up with no leadership, no responsibility, no justice, no hope, 20 years of waste and corruption. I support values. The ANC and our president, and by the looks of it, you included, do not.
PAT FERRARIS
TYPICAL D Galloway reply to Pat Ferraris’s comments. He should pull his head out of the sand and see the modern world. The ANC should graduate from a revolutionary party to a political party first, then change its Freedom Charter to suit the modern world and things may improve if it dumps its alliance partners.
ANDY KING
COME all you pro-ANC letter writers, let us hear your opinions. Cape Town has been voted No1 city in the world to visit this year. If the ANC got control how far down the ladder do you think it would drop? Be honest now.

PETROL BOMBING ON DAY OF WEDDING
IT’s amazing how Monday’s headlines about the house bombing case have gone from front page news to a small item at the bottom of page 3 yesterday.
FRED
CONGRATS to Trevor and Shireen on your wedding day. I hope the rubbish gets caught and let The Herald know who it is.
ELAINE
PUNISH RAPIST OF YOUNG GIRL SEVERELY
THE horror attack on a nine-year-old girl raped and set alight is barbaric. Failure to reinstate the death penalty is now long overdue, these hooligans need to be put to death. If the government continues to fail the people, eventually the people will take the law into their own hands. Enough is enough. Wake up, ANC.
LLEWELLYN
ONLY one way to treat rapists: spreadeagle them tied down and castrated using a blunt instrument!

LEGALISE DAGGA IN SA
LEGALISE dagga and make 30% of the country non-criminal.
J BAY
LEGALISE it. Long overdue.
PATRICK
IT’s a disgrace busting a dagga farm when other countries and the world are poised to decriminalise God’s miracle plant. Go solve real crime.
