FIXING DRAINS REALLY ISN’T ROCKET SCIENCE
THIS very “competent” municipal spokesman indicated that “we will do our own fact-finding and understand what actually happened” regarding the blocked drain! I will not be surprised if they consult government to appoint a commission to investigate the legality of how two 10-year-olds, without the necessary ANC connections, did work reserved for previously disadvantaged cadres.

When it takes two young boys’ initiative to unblock the drains, then you must know how low a municipality has gone down that they are so useless they can’t fix drains. Well done Wihan Wichers and Matthew Bauman, who are aged 10, for fixing the drain. To the metro: you are an embarrassment to PE. Why don’t you donate a part of your big bonuses to these young lads for doing your job, or even give them each one of the cellphones you are so willing to dish out to your councillors who lounge around city hall doing nothing but waiting for handouts for a job they don’t do.
EASIER SAID THAN DONE
It would be amazing how quiet many people would be if their hands were tied behind their back for a day (a “less talk day”!) Maybe more listening than speaking would be a new experience for them.
BEHAVE YOURSELVES, PLEASE
Your chirps. The article by Noel Julius is absolutely spot-on. The majority of the night folk don’t witness the mess and filth that has to picked up the following morning. Pity they can’t behave.
Noel , Cape Town is governed by the DA – that is why it is rated as one of the best cities in the world. Thanks to the capable DA once again. Let’s do it for this metro of ours in 2016 and be proud.
Well said, Noel Julius.We live in a state of anarchy because we have a nonexistent and corrupt traffic department.
CASE OF SELECTIVE PERCEPTION
Naushad Omar, why are you so silent on the horrible atrocities committed in the name of Allah? Not a word from US and Israel haters about the brave beheading of innocent civilians, or dastardly, cowardly massacre of scholars in Pakistan. You believe those that murder callously in the name of Allah have the divine right to do so. Everybody else is a murderer, even when the Israelis defend themselves against cowardly rocket attacks fired from civilian areas in Gaza. You’re a hypocrite.
SIR OBJECTIVE OBSERVER
IT’S A DRUNKEN MAN’S WORLD
Early-hour pub brawl, I suppose they were served milk and cookies. After spending the whole night in a tavern you are bound to be pushed around and wacked.That’s part of life. You must expect it when you visit pubs until the early hours of the morning. Welcome to a man’s world. No case, “Drunken Brawl”.
