PROTESTS AGAINST MAYORAL DECISION
SECOND page of The Herald, picture of people emptying a rubbish bin. I need to ask the question, what kind of behaviour is this?
ANC Women's League wants to burn City Hall so that ratepayers fork out more money again. Cosatu marches to disrupt work, less productivity, less money. You voted ANC.
NCEBA Faku quits, Wayile fired and being replaced with Chippa Ngcolomba and, an already antique Ben Fihla, and the crisis will continue. Thanks to the people who voted for the African National Crisis, you are now being rewarded what you voted for – chaos.
IS our new mayor really 81?
AN 81-year-old mayor! How effective and energetic can that be?
WHAT does Faku mean by going into business? Do you get off-the-shelf businesses? Or is he going to start a business unaided by the family business – the African National Cadre-deployment agency?
YOU b****r up as mayor, and you get sent to parliament? With the ANC you cannot go too far wrong!
FRONT PAGE PHOTOS
SO lovely to see happy photos on the front page now and then. Keep it up.
PLEASE be aware of very aggressive beggar (very dirty and possibly mentally unstable) who hangs around the parking area at The Avenues, Heugh Road shopping centre.
He has already threatened some tenants with a knife, forcefully tried to "help" lady today to put parcels in her car and last week insisted on "helping" a mother take her baby out of its carseat.
Be careful – he becomes very belligerent when confronted!
LACK OF BURIAL SPACE
WHY can't people be buried "standing up"? That would save loads of space. Cremation still the answer!
IN Italy they have the above-ground burials which takes up a lot less space and looks very neat and beautiful. I believe that this is the way South Africa should be going! I am glad that they realised there is still space in these other graveyards – as it can clearly be seen there is. Personally I believe in cremation but I understand that not everybody is comfortable with this.
60% of people who live in Port Elizabeth are from rural areas – Ciskei and Transkei. The metro municipality should create a burial incentive policy, including transportation of the body back home or to the place of preference for burial. But this should be done through funeral parlours at the time of taking out a funeral policy. That should be on the data of the municipality, which will give indication as to how many people will be buried in Port Elizabeth.
FROM ashes to ashes from dust to dust ... stop planting people in the ground as if they're trees. Burn them and scatter their ashes rather!
NO MORE BURIALS
