HEALTHCARE IN A SHAMBLES

“IRATE patient’s hell” – what do you expect when some staff leave early and others go to taverns in working hours? The hospital is worse then a hell hole, not a good sight to go there. If you as the patient attend Livingstone Hospital it’s like doing staff a favour.

PATIENT

IT is an absolute disgrace the way patients are being treated at Livingstone Hospital! I have said it before and will say it again – get rid of Sizwe Kupelo and the managing committee, and replace them with competent people!

BUCK

LIVINGSTONE Hospital is more like Dyingstone! I said it before – only gangsters with gunshot wounds get seen by doctors! Going to ask a gangster to shoot me in the leg, then go to Livingstone for “heart attack” pain. Will bypass all others because of gunshot.

CADRE

LIVINGSTONE Hospital is a total disgrace. Start a cleanup urgently.

OBSERVER

IN case you haven’t noticed yet, Roland Williams, the public healthcare setup in your wonderful ANC-run metro is also a dysfunctional shambles.

WELL PLAYED, ARSENAL!

CONGRATS to Arsenal for winning the FA Cup. Well played and we hope you win it again next year.

HEALTHCARE IN A SHAMBLES

WHY do the two most empty-headed, loud-mouthed politicians in South Africa, Julius Malema and Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, get so much media coverage? Never a day goes by that these two aren’t saying or doing something in the press, on radio or on TV! Enough of these two. The more coverage they get the more people become aware of them and that is bad for South Africa in more ways than one.

POLICE CARS USED PRIVATELY

THE shortage of SAPS vehicles is an urban myth as the use of vehicles for private use goes on unabated.

TAXIS MAKE TOO MUCH OF A NOISE

TAXI drivers in Humewood-Summerstrand are too noisy. They shout and hoot from morn to noon. The music of the waves is drowned out. Stop it!

CAN SUE SABC OVER ALCOHOL ADVERTS

A PERSON can sue the SABC for continuing with alcohol adverts, because these adverts are prejudicial and a bad influence on children.

REFEREE ON CRUSADERS’ SIDE

THE ref in the Crusaders-Sharks match intended from the outset not to do anything which would prejudice the Crusaders. He viewed the Jean Deysel incident on a number of occasions and saw Jordan Taufua interfering, with Deysel preventing him from getting to the action. That deserves a yellow card but went unpunished. Why? Furthermore prior to the Willem Alberts incident, a Crusader player tackled a Sharks player without the ball and a penalty was awarded but no card. Why? The answers are obvious.

PISTORIUS NOT VIGILANT, IT SEEMS

DR Merryll Vorster testified that Oscar Pistorius was hyper-vigilant. Surely he should have noticed that Reeva Steenkamp was not in bed.

BRAMLIN LINK ROAD A MESS

MALABAR-Westering (Bramlin) link road is a mess. Pipe-laying contractor, please fill trenches properly and speedily. You are causing stone chip and suspension damage to residents’ vehicles. Even at 40km/h, cars not designed to drive through trenches. Road very dangerous at night, with no proper warning signage or street lamps. Can municipality please act?

POOR SHOW ON DEPUTY MAYOR’S PART

DA letter: God help us if the DA needs to write letters to the press to meet the deputy mayor! Man up! Hope this isn’t a sign of future weak tactics.

GUTLESS ANC BOWS TO RIOTING

THERE is no doubt the illegal connections are once again up and running, after a gutless ANC bows to rioting and destruction of property. The rule of law no longer applies to ANC voting fodder and is a hefty kick in the groin for all law-abiding citizens. The price it pays for lies, deceit, promises (to win votes), corruption and incompetence, and the only way to stop this anarchy is for PE’s law-abiding citizens (next municipal elections) to vote the communist-controlled ANC back to the stone age and let the DA clean up their mess, like in Cape Town. Now that would be “a good story” to tell.

FIHLA SHOULD HAVE RETIRED LONG AGO

BEN Fihla should have retired long ago. He is long past his sell-by date. Create jobs by putting all these retirement age people on pension.

VOTING EFF

RUDZANI Floyd Musekwa, this country has no hope because of biased people who vote like you. EFF indeed, so you like populist thugs? Africa is indeed very myopic.

HENRY

COMRADE Rudzani, you voted for the EFF yet you claim you are against corruption. The EFF is a racist, anti-white party, yet you support it. Are you anti-white, comrade?

TP

FLOYD’s Call column May 16, “Why I voted for the EFF”: one million votes wasted if they all voted for the same or some of the reasons you chose to. Don’t you think the DA felt for the people of Marikana along with other SA citizens? We don’t need another opposition party, we need to believe in the ANC’s opposition party that has already proved it can make a change to SA and for its people. Wake up South Africa. Time is running out, stop wasting it.

WHY WERE GIRLS FORCED TO CONVERT?

TO N Omar, one thing puzzles me: if as you say Boko Haram has nothing to do with Islam and are nothing but group of bandits, why did they force the girls to convert to Islam?
