PUT THE LIGHTS ON TO MAKE ROADS SAFER
WHAT on earth is our municipality doing about the pitch blackness at night on the stretch of N2 between the Cotswold and Commercial Road turnoffs? Ask any traffic official or tow truck operator how many accidents occur on this road. Please give us light for our own safety.
I TRAVELLED down Buffelsfontein/Heugh Road at 4.30 yesterday morning. I counted 50 street lights that needed bulbs or repair. That's just one street!
WONDERFUL rugby by the Kings on Saturday. So exciting to be there. No19, you have to stay. What a huge improvement on the player you replaced. Go Kings.
REMEMBER the Boet days of Boelie Serfontein, China Bell and others when a victory in the Eastern Cape was something you had to earn? Well those days are back. Bring on the Stormers, Sharks or other horned animals, the Elephants are stomping.
REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
JENNI, I agree 100% with you. Uninvited "people" in your house need no mercy. The bullet is what they need.
I WOULD like to add to Jenni's comment on killing an intruder. I notice you say "if I see an intruder", you are willing to take his life. Oscar Pistorius did not "see" anyone, but heard somebody. How much noise does a woman make in a toilet! The so-called intruder had nowhere to go, so why not stand at the bathroom door with the gun and wait for police? Who shoots at a closed door, and was the bathroom light on? Did Reeva Steenkamp not scream after the first bullet hit her?
ROBERT, CHELSEA, PORT ELIZABETH
JENNI, it is against the law to kill another human being. You might still be breathing but you might also be in jail!
I CAN'T understand how four shots produce five bullets, one found afterwards and in water. Can we believe that no one looked in the toilet while searching a bathroom? Neighbours say two shots and two a half hour later! A case of failed post-crime negotiations leading to a deadlier crime? We do hope that there are more known facts than the media are reporting. A double tragedy.
AZ, pretty weak point to rest your case on. I always lock the toilet door, whether home alone or with my husband!
ART, the abuse of women is very much a concern of the ANC Women's League.
OBVIOUS personal vendettas against Roland Williams should not form part of important legitimate discussion regarding gun freedom.
FREDERICK GORDON INSANE
LET's face it: Frederick Gordon belongs on the funny farm. He is totally insane. It's scary that there are so many lunatics among us.
WIFE's nail torn out, reconstructive surgery needed to her face, head and internally, teeth knocked out, deaf in one ear, blind in one eye! I pray to the Lord that this creature gets his just desserts and doesn't escape suitable punishment by reason of his obvious insanity. He knew what he was doing!
CHILDREN DENIED RIGHT TO EDUCATION
THE government is denying the children their right to education. Noxolo Kiviet, you know that Angie Motshekga and Mandla Makupula are totally incompetent and useless. Should you not be telling them to leave?
IS NEW MUNICIPAL MANAGER A CADRE?
IS NEW municipal manager Lindiwe Msengana-Ndlela an ANC member? If so, I don't hold out much hope. If not, may The Force be with her.
