SELEBI A LOYAL ANC CADRE
I hope they give Jackie Selebi a state funeral. He was a loyal cadre and freedom fighter. Though convicted, only stole a small amount was involved, compared to others. Viva ANC!
Jackie Selebi: ANC leader of our people, wall street..disgraced police chief! Enough said, roll on elections.

MUNICIPAL BRAINS SHED THEIR LOADS
The joys of load-shedding could be much easier for motorists if major intersections were manned by traffic officials. After all, load-shedding is announced in advance, and officials know when and where load-shedding will happen. Alas, it would appear that the brains required to have this type of foresight have shedded their loads.
LIVES LOST IN LOOTING SPREE
Looting and a baby dies! Rest in peace, little one, no more violence for you.
We hear so much about racism and hate speech, especially with black people accusing white people of this crime. The latest jibe is Cosatu blaming colonialism and apartheid for the looting of foreign nationals’ businesses in Soweto, Johannesburg. This is political mischief. Both Japan and Germany rebuilt their economies after World War 2 within a period of 20 years. The ANC have has had the same time and the resources to do the same. Instead countless billions have gone up in smoke stolen and misused. Our president blames the Eskom debacle on the whites (remember Nkandla), now Cosatu does the same. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black when this hooliganism and criminality has been born and bred during the ANC’s tenure in power. Colonialism and apartheid indeed.
Can it actually be true and verifiable that every foreign national in the RSA has a legal right to be here? What about those scores of them loitering at in Western Road in PE Central openly smoking dagga at all hours of the day?
BEWARE OF CON ARTISTS IN PARKING AREA
The public must please beware of con artist/s at Builder’s Warehouse car park. Once you use the ATM this guy runs up to you and says there’s something wrong with ATM or your card is still in the machine. It happened to two people I know, but they were clever enough to not fall for it. Do car guards know this as well as Builder’s Warehouse management?
WHY CLOSE OFF WYKEHAM AVENUE?
Who on earth could have decided to close Wykeham Avenue into Cape Road and plant a row of little tombstones down Cape Road? What on earth for?

REPLIES TO READERS’ COMMENTS
WS, you are right. Schools must have rules, but those rules must not infringe on the rights of the learners pupils. SGBs must make rules in line with government policy and the constitution, and not turn schools into businesses. Charging admin fees and compulsory fundraising is illegal, as is and also withholding reports. We will fight these corrrupt tendancies unabatedl corrupt tendencies.
Booysens Park Library is really useless for primary school tasks! Teachers give kids tasks which needs a computer to aid the poorer kids. The ladies staff at the library give you a bewilde bewildered look as if you are from Mars!
Inreply to Jean, of Sunridge Park.herald Jan 26 2015. (January 26), the reason the big valves are opened is to allow air to escape the pipe system so as to prevent a hammer effect. This is so that the pipe lines do not burst and leave you without water for even longer. This is usually done after essential maintenance has been done that you are not aware of in the area. The lines are shut and drained in order to work on them. When reopened air in the system must be released. You see water gushing, but in fact it’s water and air escapeing escaping. So now you know.

Nigel Wakeford, wake up. You are right that there is only one church on earth and that is the Catholic Church, which was started by St PeterSAINT PETER “. All other places of worship is are just a building and nothing more.
