FREEDOM DAY

IT would have been tremendous to have celebrated Freedom Day except it was spoilt by all the corruption and thieving by certain politicians.

IT is a tragedy that so many whites’ mindset is that of bigotry and rejection of the ANC’s social cohesion policy and stay in their corners, preferring to be “braai masters” rather than participate in government programmes on our national holidays.

JACOB Zuma “popping up” – what a circus!

READER

I FEEL free to make the change this country needs. Jacob Zuma’s ANC is not the same ANC. The DA is the answer.

IF we want real freedom we need to use our vote to make the changes that will truly liberate us. That means change away from the ANC!

ANOTHER DISGRUNTLED SOUTH AFRICAN

REAL freedom starts with a job. It is a ladder out of poverty. We need a party that will create opportunities for all. Anyone listening?

REPLIES TO READERS’ COMMENTS

SPLASH: different points of view are very helpful and can be used constructively. To me the fireworks display was a bit overdone and unnecessary. Compared to the two previous years, this year’s Splash was a huge improvement and I’m sure next year will be even more successful. Yes, Baldyman, PE loves welcoming visitors – we enjoy the friendly feeling!

“BOND” Nyoka says that to spoil one’s vote would be to spit on the graves of those who paid the ultimate price for our democracy. Maybe, but those who loot, plunder and pillage not only spit on the graves, but dance and sing on them too.

IF I was a private repair shop I wouldn’t work on one of the state’s cars! Expensive or not, they won’t see a cent!

HOW can you blame God for the decision the mother made allegedly to kill her children? Do you know if she even believes in God? Let’s blame God for all the evil in this world! No, it’s since God has been taken out of schools and society that there is no morality and people have nothing to hold on to. God gives you the strength you need to cope with battles, just believe!

GREAT JAZZ CONCERT

PE needs more outdoor events. The jazz concert in Settlers Park was a great function. Well done to the organisers. Now we need supporters.

WELL DONE TO EP KINGS ON THEIR WIN

EP Kings, wow well done on beating the Sharks 27-11. Keep it up guys and keep on stepping up your game plan. Cheeky Watson, have you signed the new players yet? If not, do it quickly before you lose them and hopefully on at least two to five-year contracts.

WHERE TO GET A PHONE BOOK?

ON Friday morning I went to Telkom at The Bridge to get a telephone book and was told they don’t stock them, I must go to a post office. This I duly did, only to be told they don’t stock them, go to Telkom! Cannot believe what idiots we the public must put up with. I still haven’t got a phone book!

STATE HOSPITAL NEEDED IN CIRCULAR DRIVE

WITH regard to the Circular Drive hospital, please make it a general state hospital to be accessible to the majority of people who have no medical aids.

VOTING FOR DA FOR FIRST TIME

I WILL be voting for the DA for the first time since my fear of ANC mismanagement and corruption is greater than my opposition to the DA’s support for the apartheid state of Israel.

    Dr Galloway, it is a tradegy that the ANC uses things like “Social cohesion” as a smoke screen of putting themselves into a position of plundering state coffers, building Nkandla’s, govt employees doing business with the state for self enrichment, and an excuse for bad service delivery. Please do not think that just because whites do not use “the collective” as the ANC needs to or act in a way you would like us to that we do not want what is “correct” for all in this country. The people that vote for the ANC do not care about what the “Zuma’s” of this world do or do not do, the people that vote ANC seem to want corruption and crime and a lack of disipline. You seem to be a spot of a racist when you make it a black and white thing??? or one of those that want the corruption to continue!! Rather vote DA, they do no condone self enrichment by the govt employees, they believe that they are there to serve the people of the country.
