UPSURGE IN GANG VIOLENCE IN BAY

I FEEL sorry for patients who really have health problems, like having a stroke or heart attack, at Livingstone Hospital because when a shot “gangster” is brought in, doctors and nurses rush to attend to the gangster! Been there, seen that!

CADRE

IT’S high time all gang members are arrested, convicted and kept in solitary confinement so they can’t cause mayhem in the prisons!

DISGUSTED!

SURELY the time has come that a state of emergency is called. Call in the army to protect these people of the northern areas and take control of these horrific shootings of innocent people.

PE CITIZEN

LORD, please intervene in Helenvale. Keep your hand over the innocent people. The brutal killings are bizarre.

HARASSED BY CAR GUARDS

I DO not use a car, and yet I am constantly harassed and threatened for money by “car guards” here in Grahamstown. The clock is ticking.

ROLAND WILLIAMS CONTROVERSY

IN his letter to The Herald the other day, Roland Williams stated that he did not play golf, yet on Friday we read of his freebie at Paarl! Just who does he think he’s kidding?

MC MEEK

YOUR story is so stupid. Stop victimising my comrade!

ZENANI

MANY people don’t know Roland Williams. He grew up without a father, stayed in a home, put himself through varsity while having three part-time jobs. And he always has and always does put others first. He makes sacrifices every day to help others.

UMESHANI EDGAR

DID Roland Williams not write in a letter to The Herald that he does not play golf or drink single malt whisky? Besides providing excellent golf facilities, I don’t think Paarl Media entertained its guests with cheap whisky.

ANC MEMBER

ROLAND, I repeat the gentleman doth protest too much methinks. Give it up man and retain some dignity.

BARBIE, PORT ELIZABETH

ROLAND Williams is the director of the department that issued the tender for Ubuntu and this company is currently printing the magazine. Accepting a gift from this company is wrong. No amount of spinning will change the fact that what you did was wrong!

TRUTH

WHAT’S with The Herald and Roland Williams? I’m sure most of us don’t really care about his personal life, like it’s news? Leave the guy alone!

JUST SAYING

AFTER reading the insulting and defamatory Facebook posts by Roland Williams and his supporters against Rochelle de Kock on The Herald’s Facebook page, I sincerely hope The Herald as her employer offers her some protection against these personal attacks on her character.

THE ANC IS trying to move the blame.

PUBLIC PLACES MUST OPEN ON SATURDAYS

THE following government institutions: post office, libraries, city treasurer, SARS and the traffic department should be open for business on Saturdays! Why? We want ordinary citizens to be at work from Monday to Friday. SA stays absent too easily! Let the casuals, who are mostly youths shadowing the permanent employees during the week, work! That way we create jobs! Teachers get holidays four times a year plus weekends, yet there is a high absentee/sick rate among them! SA is losing millions due to all of the above!

RAMAPHOSA SPEAKS AT CHURCH

PASTOR Jerome Liberty (Victory Ministries), is it about money that you are selling the soul of the church to a political party? Cyril Ramaphosa spoke politics. I am so upset with you.

OSCAR PISTORIUS TRIAL

JJ OSSHER, you must be a very mean minded person to have made such an unkind comment about Oscar Pistorius vomiting in court, no matter what your personal views regarding him may be.

RAT

SMURF, you hit the nail on the head! That’s what I’ve been writing about. It’s Oscar Pistorius’s money, why must the Steenkamps sue him! They have more than enough.

FAITH

SMURF, what earned Oscar Pretorius the right to take June Steekamp’s daughter’s life which was worth so much more than the money he was so entitled to earn. Correct, she didn’t deserve that. I am totally anti-violence. God bless you, June and family.

SCARFACE ON FOOT

STOP criticising Reeva Steenkamp’s family. To people like Smurf, you should be ashamed. I do not know the Steenkamp family. I find it shocking and sad that people are so critical of a family who have lost a beautiful young lady so tragically.

SEPARATE ELECTRICITY AND WATER BILLS

THE people want the amount of electricity paid for. The municipality must sort out water bills separately.

WELCOME TO NEW KINGS PLAYERS

I WANT to say a big welcome to the new Kings players and to PE. Just know you will be happy with the move to the Kings. Can’t wait for news about other new players.

CASUAL POSTMEN EARN LESS

THE ANC promise a better life for all, but casual postmen are earning a far lesser rate of pay with no benefits then permanent postmen for doing the same job. Where is the justice in this?

WELL DONE ON VICTORY

WELL done to Old Grey for beating Grey High in the final of the six-a-side. One question I would like to ask is why NMMU Cricket Club (league champions) sent a third rate side? Why did you not send your strongest side? Says a lot about your attitude towards other clubs and traditions.
