NOT MUNICIPAL LAND
CRUSHED girl: the land and the flats belonged to the Department of Housing and not the municipality.
OSCAR PISTORIUS CASE
WITH the high levels of crime in the country, when my dogs bark or I hear something in the house, the first thing I grab is a baseball bat, so should Oscar Pistorius not get the benefit of the doubt till found guilty at trial instead of being crucified in the media?
WHY is "the press" turning Pistorius into a hero?
OSCAR, a R4-million home! You thought you heard a burglar! No alarm going off? No panic button? The security heard, said nothing?
DO I detect a thrill in some sections of the population at the misfortune of a white icon? The Barefoot Contessa, the blue light brigade and smiling ANC protesters in on the act.
SO Nancy Sihlwayi does what the ANC are renowned for, hijack the stage where they should not be, Cheap shot. Must have learnt from Marius Fransman. Sies.
PETERSEN NEEDS MORE EXPERIENCE
IS Sergeal Petersen ready? I don't think so. Two seasons with his province for experience will sharpen the teen, and avoid early injuries in his bright future.
MUNICIPAL MANAGER SHORT LIST
MUNICIPAL manager shortlisted cronies and comrades are a joke. Where are the likes of Graham Richards (sorry wrong colour) who are really capable (and qualified) of doing a good job? God help us.
NO CLEAN AUDITS FOR EC MUNICIPALITIES
EASTERN Cape municipalities all fail audit: same old ANCorruption/Circus/ Chaos. Any prosecutions for the stealing yet (ha ha)?
SABC MUST CATER FOR ALL TASTES
WHAT'S with SABC1 and 3 showing local soccer at prime time on a Saturday night? Please cater for all, especially those who pay their licences.
WHY IS ELECTRICITY GOING UP?
IF all these wind farms are adding electricity to the national electricity grid, then why is the electricity price going up?
WOULD SHOP IN STRAND STREET IF WAS SAFE
IF I knew I would be safe in Strand Street and my car would be untouched, I would love to shop there, as would many of my friends. We all love bargains!
THANKS FOR CLEANING STREET
JUST witnessed a very rare happening – the streets were being cleaned on Cape Road, opposite Fernglen! Thank you municipality.

WEIGHTLIFTING CHAMPION DIES
A RESPECTED Port Elizabeth businessman, former South Africa and Eastern Province middleweight weightlifting champion has died at age 78 years. Eric Benjamin was a good churchman and family man. Rest in peace.
YIKES! Cheeky Watson is really punting Puke as a real rugby player! The world is a sick place!
IF the Kings all came from the Eastern Cape maybe I will back them! Importing players? Nah!
REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
ED Gutsche, why not use your position and clout to start the ball rolling and take on the traffic department head on. Lots will support you.
A SIMPLE solution for traffic department incompetence is to employ the fresh young qualified unemployed traffic officers of which they are aware. The department's incompetent arrogance will claim the lives of all road users, yet they claim that safety is their priority.
WELL told, Bob McChlery. Avondale, where two would-be rapists were found dead: done in by male family of the rape victims. There is another true story of young boys molested by priests, who systematically took out their tormentors, when they were men. South African men must protect their women and children.
ANDRE Potgieter, you just don't get it, do you? The secret lies in the word "decoy". Must I tell you everything?
DRUG ABUSE IN BAY
TIK is taking over the Bay. There should be a death penalty for these drug lords, as they destroy lives as well. Tik worth R600000 was taken off the streets, well done to those involved.

DON'T BE FOOLED BY COURT ANTICS
DO not let Fred Gordon's smiling and antics in court fool people into believing he's insane. It's a ploy to get away with the terrible abuse of Avril. Her life is ruined . Put him away forever in jail.
BUSES JUMP RED LIGHTS
TWICE I have witnessed these IPTS buses going through a red "bus" traffic light in Harrower Road and apparently knocked a cyclist. Where are the traffic police?
WIGS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
I AM now experiencing childhood cancer for the third time. Cancer associations don't even supply wigs anymore. So what do they do now?
