TWEET QUOTED OUT OF CONTEXT
I have come to the conclusion that a tweet is like a Bible verse quoted out of context! Very misleading. Early on in their relationship Nelson Mandela told Zelda le Grange that she must have the “courage of her convictions”. Do you really think that Le Grange should apologise for expressing her hurt, concern, frustration and disappointment? I doubt there was any racist intent. In 2010 Jacob Zuma said Afrikaans people belonged in SA but not the English. I feel justified in feeling upset by some of Zuma’s remarks and actions! Should we not rather discuss the fact that the president does say things which make people feel alienated? Of course so does Helen Zille. It is insentive insensitive to name a Cape Town street after FW de Klerk, a die-hard Nat. But even if Le Grange does attempt to put her tweet into context or re-phrase it, there is bound to be someone who will misunderstand, misinterpret and misquote her. Sad.
ALL KNOW WHO’S GUILTY
So if the charges against the two officers allegedly involved in Guptagate are dropped, who will now be charged? Do not hold your breath. The guilty are known to all but the ANC.
DROP PARNELL, BEHARDIEN FROM SQUAD
If they take Wayne Parnell or Farhaan Behardien to the World Cup, the Proteas are a lost cause. Parnell is the most expensive bowler in SA and Behardien has yet to score runs in his last 15-odd games. Also, neither is an allrounder.

SEND CUNNINGHAM FOR TREATMENT
Enough of Brent Cunningham. I’m sure he loves the attention. Why is he so special? Send him for treatment and anger management.
HOW MANY MORE BUSINESSES WILL FAIL?
Another company bites the dust. How many more to follow EH Walton after 170 years? What a sad day. Bay’s business vision plan is only a pipe dream. Kobus Jonker sees the Bay as the best city in Africa to live, play and grow business in, all that in the dark.hows fooling how ?

SABC, GIVE US A SPORT CHANNEL
Why can’t the SABC have a sport channel? Then we who do not follower sport can watch what we want, not what they want us to watch.
WELL DONE ON SCHOLARSHIP
Well done, Lupumlo Mguca, for getting that scholarship. He first excelled in rugby at Bluewater Bay Primary under his first coach, Mr Cunningham. It’s good to see how he developed. Keep it up – the green and gold is not far!
DA MUST START ELECTION CAMPAIGN
Upcoming municipal election: why is the DA not starting with there its municipal election campaign in PE now, like the ANC. Wake up, the ANC they will take you to the cleaners. Seems only national elections is are important to the DA.
LET THOSE WHO WANT TO WORK DO SO
To the (once again) striking municipal truck drivers: it is time to fire the lot of you and let people work that who want to work. You are privilaged privileged to have jobs.
Hats off to Anelisa Ms Dyakala. It is clear you are not influenced by demanding workers to approve overtime as dictated by them. To the workers (in particular Nkosikhona Mr Mazele), it is time you realised overtime is a privilege and not a right.
