FUTURE OF PE’S GAME PARKS

SEAVIEW Predator Park must have the slickest spin doctors getting the public rallied to keep them going. They have extensive breeding facilities there and need to be honest with us about where the cubs go. I wonder if they would survive if canned hunting was banned?

SAVE Kragga Kamma, but Seaview must go! They were featured on Carte Blanche with respect to breeding cubs for canned hunting. We all need to open their eyes to their true operation.

GARY

SO THE budget and treasury department’s political head, councillor Balu Naran, wants to peruse the game parks’ books? He is not an auditor. We, the public, want to peruse all ANC indulgences of our rate payments. Let’s follow the money. Who would score by obtaining the land held by these parks and the developers waiting in the wings to score a huge fortune. I smell a huge rat.

FAMOUS TRANSPLANT SURVIVOR DIES

SAMANTHA Salt (nee Bunce). It was with great sadness and tears that I read about your sudden passing. My daughters were a couple of Grades behind you at Erica and though we never met, I feel like I have lost a daughter. May God be close to you and your young family that you have left behind.

NIGEL WAKEFORD

ALISTAIR Salt (Samantha’s husband) I salute you. There lies a hard job ahead for you. But I know you will make it. TERTIA

CRIMINAL COPS

POPCRU, are you saying that it is no problem that the people who are here to uphold the law, can have a criminal record? That this is acceptable?

OWNER FIGHTS AGAINST ROGUE TENANT

I FEEL for you Amanda. Keep fighting for your rights. These estate agents can’t be trusted. They just take their money and run.

AMANDA Wolmarans should get her maintenance people to remove the doors and even the security gate. Let the squatters get cold.

NATIE RENS

THE police have failed Mrs Wolmarans, who is a law- abiding tax and rates payer. The very least they could have helped her with was to inspect her property. The “tenant” had rights but only if the contract is still valid – which if not paid it’s in breach – so obviously not.

A-TEAM MEMBERS RELEASED AGAIN

BUNGLE sees A-team released three times. It should never happen even using a false name because at the courts they use a system they call PTS where every new case gets logged, photos taken and fingerprints get verified, so it amazes me how they slip through the net. They should maybe check who did all their PTS investigations. Maybe they could trace the problem there.

RESPONSE TO READERS’ COMMENTS

CHARMAINE Weidemann, I am sorry for the tragic loss of your sons. What a shame it does not make you sensitive to the plight of Reeva’s parents in their grief! Instead you launch into a scathing attack on them. It seems you were fortunate to have the luxury of being able to “mourn in private”. You say that you “don’t walk around looking for other people to feel sorry for you”. Yet it seems you have used this occasion to put yourself in the public eye? What is the motive for your letter? The Steenkamp’s were FORCED into the limelight when Oscar Pistorius shot and killed their daughter. Your severe criticism of them should they receive compensation for the death of their daughter is in poor taste. You sound bitter and resentful.

RENALDO Gouws, regarding fining taxis outside the Boardwalk, don’t you know that a fine never works for taxis as they simply ignore it and get away with it?

I SALUTE what “Mtsila” said about why people are angry about booing Zuma. What goes around comes around. It is payback time.

POSH

YOU know what, “Listener”, we, and there are thousands upon thousands of people, love the sound of Daron Mann’s voice. You can always switch off but that’ll be your loss.

NORMA

READERS complain about speed humps in Walmer Boulevard. You must see the mountains we must climb in the northern areas. We replace suspension parts regularly at great expense. You complain about travelling 20km/h over them. We come to a complete halt.

HURRICANE ZUMA

A SOUTH African cabinet minister finally speaks the truth! Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula calls the president a “tsunami” and a “hurricane”. These two forces of nature are only known for the chaos and destruction they cause.

WHAT a disgrace! Wonder who pocketed tax payers money this time.

THE reporter who covered the hydroponics story incorrectly reported that the Emmanuel Haven Hydroponics project is still running. It is a similar eyesore to Walmer.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING

WHEN my vehicle broke down in Kragga Kamma Road during peak morning traffic, I was helped by a young couple. Thanks so much. Your kindness made me appreciate the wonderful people we have in South Africa.

JOHN HARINGTON

A HUGE thank you to nursing staff at Greenacres Hospital who cared so well for my mom, Muriel Gill. As they used to sing together, I can fly.

DENT AND RUN

TO THE driver of a white van or car that parked next to my blue Mercedes at Woollies Greenacres on Wednesday March 12, you put a dent in, and removed paintwork on my car when opening your door. How do you sleep at night? Remember God knows who you are!
