BABIES DYING THROUGH LACK OF EQUIPMENT

LAWSUITS be damned. There is a serial killer loose in the Ministry of Health and should be brought to justice.

THE government and Jacob Zuma make me sick to my stomach. The deaths of innocent small babies is heartbreaking. This needs to end. Why are he and the people of government still around?

TRAFFIC CHAOS IN THE BAY

OBSTRUCTING traffic on a yellow line in Cape Town results in instant wheel-clamping and a quick tow-away. It works, trust me. How about an experiment in effectiveness outside the Boardwalk, where two or three taxis at a time obstruct traffic flow in the middle of a robot-controlled intersection? Have noticed traffic cars hooting them on lately, but the very next one does exactly the same. Totally ineffective.

TALKING about taxis, I see they have a new dangerous way of driving now, which is they overtake on the left side. I drive the old Cape road daily and see this happening. When are people going to learn?

SPORTING HEROES

WELL done, Southern Kings, just play the whole season like you played the first match. Play more attacking rugby and run, pass more. Sorry you lost against the Cheetahs but the ref made a lot of mistakes and should have worn a Cheetahs jersey in the second half. Hope in your next match you have a ref who is fair and does not make mistakes that can cause a team to lose a match.

 SOUTHERN KINGS SUPPORTER

MY hero is Lucas Sithole for reaching the finals of the wheelchair tennis in the Australian Open – with no legs and only one arm. I salute you and admire your courage.

ZUMA INVOKES WRATH OF ANCESTORS

JACOB Zuma, stop this “wrath of the ancestors” mumbo jumbo. The up and coming generation sees through this nonsense and would just like a better future, with or without the ANC.

GQ

JACOB Zuma says people who leave the ANC will attract the wrath of the ancestors. I thought he becoming president was already a manifestation of the ancestors’ displeasure.
