ANC MEMBERS FIGHTING THEMSELVES

YOU are wrong. The ANC is not fighting the DA. The ANC is doing a good job with their own internal fights. Don’t blame the DA for lack of service delivery.

WHY NO DRUG RAIDS IN CENTRAL?

I WONDER why one never finds any raids and arrests of drug sellers in Central even though it has been identified as the centre of the world drug syndicate. They even boast about it. Have they been given the right to their criminal activity?

POLICING PROTEST MARCHES

WHY do the police never arrest protestors carrying cultural weapons? I am sure that, being white, I would be arrested immediately if I swung a panga in public.

RESPECT OUR ANIMALS

WHERE is respect when certain eastern countries need rhino horns and have dog-eating festivals?

DARON MANN’S BREAKFAST SHOW

THE reason Daron Mann wants to do talk shows is because he can hear the sound of his own voice for three hours while I curse!

PROTECT THE POSTMEN

GANGSTERISM: post office management must start to listen to their postmen concerning safety in the northern areas!

THANKS FOR HELPING KIDS

I AM assisting kids with their schoolwork after school hours and was struggling to get school desks. Thank you to General Motors for the sponsorship of the desk and chairs, to the Roman Catholic church in Walmer and to the DA PR councillor Thobani Noqoli and the international students from NMMU for your support.

SPORTS COVERAGE

READERS who complain about certain stories or events that fail to make the papers always remind me of Les Barnes, the former sports journalist who used to say: “Those days are gone when papers sent out hordes of people to cover even a minor sport”.

FRAUD AND CORRUPTION

THE ANC cadres have taken fraud and corruption to a level unparalleled anywhere in this universe and when they are caught, they blame Hendrik Verwoerd. Seems like corruption keeps the African fibre together and without that everything will be so westernised.

FRANKY SMASHCAKE

ONE way that government can stop corruption and allow economic growth is to put a policy in place that companies must convert current temporary employees to permanent employees by decreasing managers huge undeserved salaries! This decision will open a gap for job creation and the poor will benefit.

WE are sick and tired of government officials’ fraud. We are branded as one of the poorest provinces yet the very poorest provinces are the most corrupt. When is this going to stop?

PARENTING NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE

SOUTH Africans must go back to their roots. It starts at home. We as parents don’t pray with our children or sit down and read the Bible. We fail to go to church on a Sunday. Most of us were brought up in a religious home with no drinking on a Sunday. But children these days don’t have respect. They swear and smoke in front of adults. Please people stop the drug and alcohol abuse. It is the start of all the problems we are facing.

ANC THREATENED BY RAMPHELE

MAMPHELA Ramphele is raising eyebrows as some ANC members seem to feel threatened by her move to start her own party. Wonderful. I just hope she doesn’t allow any ANC old f**ts into her party, they stink.

SARS NOT RESPONDING

DO I have to pay SARS even if they haven’t responded to my enquiry re: my debt? Must I just pay and keep quiet?

LACK OF RESPECT

I AM a pensioner. I look after my car which I have had from new and when I wash and polish it I find new chip marks on the doors. Do people not give a toss when opening their car doors? This is indicative of the lack of respect that South Africans have of other people’s property.

DECAYING CITY

PORT Elizabeth was a bustling thriving city now brought to disarray, decay and ruin by an incompetent ANC leadership more concerned about themselves than the city. Shame on you ANC for your intransigence and maladministration.

COMPANIES LOVE MISERY

WHY do models, rock stars , entertainers want to be seen as miserable zombies in all the adverts and publicity? The empty and miserable look doesn’t do it for me anymore.

GAME PARKS CLOSING DOWN

PE is the lost city. No more tourist attractions now that the game parks are forced to close. No tourists, no jobs, no money, no vision by NMM

TS

I AM sick to death of these useless officials in the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality. You have no problem wasting our money on your parties, celebrations, T-Shirts and your corruption. Now you want to close our two game parks. There is nothing left in PE for our residents and especially tourists to visit. I suggest you re-think closing the two game parks and all the people employed there and above all the animals. I am shocked and protesting against this action.
