AFCON AND BAFANA
I READ in The Times on Wednesday that in a poll taken, 84% will not be attending any Afcon matches! All that money being wasted on a non-event.
WHOEVER set dates for Afcon need their heads examined. With Christmas spending, kids back to school etc, who has money for soccer?
AFCON promotion flop. Why are we not surprised?
LIKE the headline "Cricket fever". Bafana so useless they don't even deserve back page.
SO much for the Bafana "DREAM TEAM". They can't even beat a weak team from Norway! They won't make it past the first round of Afcon.
GORDON Igesund happy with team's performance? What is he smoking?
HOW do we know Tuesday's match was not fixed, Mr Safa president?

SHAKESPEARE IN THE DARK
IN your report "Park theatre left in the dark" you refer to "King Hamlet". Methinks 'tis not only the theatre that is in the dark.
The story was correct. Gift Buqa plays the Ghost King Hamlet. – The editor

WHY DO WE PAY RATES
METRO please tell us what do we pay rates for? PE is overgrown, filthy and corruption is shocking. Are rates for the till fingers?
RAPID Road Transport System: can anyone tell us what happened? NO BUSES – is it another R30-million wasted?
AKADEMIA LANGUAGE POLICY
AKADEMIA: their money, their effort. What is your effort cuckoo bird?
NO books in Limpopo yet? What's new?
WHY no more quotes from the Koran? We Muslims also buy and read the Herald. We enjoy verses from the Bible but please let us have from Koran as well.
DID The Herald not notice that a Grey matriculant got 10 distinctions?
MANY citizens are clueless when it comes to disposing of their garbage. All the time and any time is a good time for them. Don't blame council.
