YOU’VE DISAPPOINTED US TOO, MR MINISTER

IT is very unfair of Fikile Mbalula to attack Bafana Bafana when they failed to go through to the quarter-finals. How many times have they, as the government, failed to deliver simple basic services to us and we have never called them names like bunch of losers? He himself failed to bring Floyd Mayweather to Mdantsane although the people of East London were promised. All he did was to keep quiet and never apologised for that although he was with Mayweather in all the other places. We respect you very much, Mbalula, but please be careful of what you say about other people. You have a right to criticise, but not in the manner you did.

ELAIS TENGE, KWAMAGXAKI, PORT ELIZABETH

FOR Fikile Mbalula to call people useless was unwarranted and a total abuse of his powers. These guys are fathers and sons in their respective families. Which sport did Mbalula play? You are wrong, Mbalula.

HOW CAN ANYONE NOT SEE RED TIDE?

HOW can anyone not see the red tide in the bay? Just stand on the Donkin site and have a look.

IS there any connection between the diver who died at Willows and the red tide? Neurotic poisoning?

SPEED BUMPS CONTRIBUTE TO CRASHES

WHEN are the roads or traffic departments going to listen? We have been moaning about the Target Kloof rumble strips since they were installed. They have caused one death and now the rubber bumps on Walmer Boulevard have caused another serious accident which we came upon on Sunday. Instead of curbing the accidents they are contributing to them.

I HAVE to ask the question: was the woman involved in the accident in Walmer Boulevard at those ridiculous speed bumps not travelling too close to the BMW to stop in time?
