ATHOL Trollip, you are a bully, or maybe even a little threatened by Stanford Slabbert.
How sad it was that he was treated this severely by his fellow councillors rather than have their backing, after giving his total loyalty, dedication and hard work to his party and his constituents for so many years!
It was a minor infringement of unfortunately not fully reading through an e-mail, which was "old news" that most of us agreed with anyway! So no real big deal!
This compared to the "other" party's many ongoing far more serious "horrors" which are all swept under the carpet, made nothing of, sidelined on full pay indefinitely, only to be given another important position later.
Have none of you ever made an innocent mistake? Shame on your bad handling of this farce!
It will be hard to find as fine a human being to replace him!
As for ANC regional secretary Zandisile Qupe's comment re Stanford Slabbert, we don't much care about what you think or want!
Especially with your party's very corrupt history over the last 20 years or so, how dare you?
Clean your own "house" first. Until then, keep your comments to yourself please!
