ZUMA INVOKES WRATH OF ANCESTORS
POOR Jacob Zuma, desperately invoking the wrath of “the ancestors” as his party sinks into oblivion. Unfortunately too many of his followers are superstitious enough to believe his childish ranting. Coupled with this, his generous cash handouts to desperate families who will not see another ANC representative until the next elections. Promises. promises. How sad! Only the DA can possibly rescue this metro from total disintegration. Please vote DA.
RICHARD, CHARLO, PORT ELIZABETH
ASK Jacob Zuma: aren’t the ancestors cross with him for stealing and corruption? But they will be cross if you don’t vote.
ANC, stop your lies.The ANC and especially Jacob Zuma must stop threatening poor voters with forefathers who will turn in their graves if people vote against the ANC. Rubbish, they are dead and can do nothing, and there is no such stuff as little river people and tokoloshes. Grow up please.
JACOB Zuma calls on voters to honour ancestors and joins the Bantu Church of Christ in what really is an election campaign! The state must be secular. Zuma says “ancestors will roll in their graves if the ANC is toppled from government”. He names Govan Mbeki and Raymond Mhlaba. These two men had enormous integrity and must surely cringe and roll in their graves at the mindless things Zuma says and does? Don’t vote for anyone out of fear. That is not freedom. Many ancestors died for our freedom. Let’s honour them by making a wise, informed choice when we vote!
WILLIAMS STILL ATTRACTS CONTROVERSY
ROLAND Williams: Roland, we may not always see eye to eye, however nobody can ever say that they would not do their level best for their own child. Anybody who disagrees is a liar. Good luck with the renovations for Isla’s room.
WELL said, Roland Williams. Some people are just plain stupid and don’t think with their brains.
ROLAND Williams, the less we hear from you and your doings the better, none of which is of any importance. In future keep your narcissistic views to yourself.
ROLAND Williams, your interviews on Algoa fm prove that you have “the gift of the gab”. You are clearly living in a dream world, as you refuse to acknowledge the serious issues in our “crumbling city of PE” we used to be so proud of! Show us you can make a genuine difference. Let’s get a wish list from residents of PE of “things that need to be fixed in our city” that you undertake to manage and oversee by identifying the NMM managers responsible and monitoring the fixing progress. I will start the list with potholes in our roads. Readers, please assist. I bet you sidestep this challenge in true “RW style”.
REPLIES TO COMMENTS ON OTHER TOPICS
GREAT idea by Eddie Miller for a TV programme called “idea testers”. But how do we know if his idea will work out here?
I AGREE with Ross Clements regarding the illegible road signs. This problem extends all over Summerstrand and many of the signs are on non-reflective surfaces, making them almost impossible to read at night.
NICKI KIRTON, SUMMERSTRAND, PORT ELIZABETH
CHARMAINE Weidemann, you have my deepest sympathy. I agree with every sentiment in your letter of March 10. May God bless and comfort you in your sad loss.
RENALDO, I was one of those who commented earlier on the poor condition of the Kings Beach lake. I will also be the first one to compliment the cleanup job if it is regularly maintained. Now maybe the Walmer tunnels can be sorted out too. Well done Dean.
PROTECTION FOR THULI MADONSELA
AND so we will and must pray for a “cloud of divine protection in the days to come” over Thuli Madonsela and her office (Piet Naude’s column).
PRINCIPAL DECIDES TO RETIRE
THIS story is really heartbreaking. Principal Mzimkhulu Qunta is clearly passionate about teaching and education. How I wish there were more teachers like him. I would really discourage him from early retirement and advise him to look at the bungle as a learning curve. If he resigns under this cloud, we will end a lifetime of good work on a very sour note.
GANG WARS RAVAGE NORTHERN AREAS
THE gang war will only stop when the community stands firm and works with the police and points out who has guns and where the guns are.
WORKERS DEPRIVED OF JOBS
DEPARTMENT of Health, while you have recklessly been playing games with service providers’ payments, you are not only playing with patients’ lives, you have also simply deprived many of their livelihoods. Despicable!
HOME AFFAIRS IN HUMANSDORP FANTASTIC
HOME Affairs in Humansdorp must be complimented on fantastic, friendly service. Went in on Friday afternoon at about 3pm for an ID application and were helped with the whole process by two women with big smiles. We left after about 15 minutes and as we were driving home got an SMS to say our application had been recorded. Great service, thank you very much!
OSCAR PISTORIUS TRIAL
IT is agony to watch the Oscar Pistorius trial. The standard of the investigation and testimony is appalling to say the least.
I CANNOT believe people have nothing better to do than sit and gawk at the Oscar Pistorius trial on TV. This week a mother was murdered in Booysen Park – will the case get the same media attention? Am I the only person who couldn’t care less about the Oscar trial or its conclusion?
