LINDIWE Msengana-Ndlela chose to resign after only five months (she was not fired!). For that she's about to get R3.2-million? What incompetents run our metro – you've all lost it!
CASH payout to Lindiwe Msengana-Ndlela needs to be investigated. There's just too much cash being paid out for nonsense. Please investigate the municipality.
LINDIWE Msengana-Ndlela's cash payout of R3.2-million must be paid by Chippa Ngcolomba and Ben Fihla. As a ratepayer I demand it and so must the rest of the ratepayers. Enough is enough!
LINDIWE Msengana-Ndlela works for three months, is off sick for two months, resigns and gets a R3.2-million payout. Please, where can I apply for this job?
ONCE again the "over-burdened ratepayers" will have to pay the R3.2-million "golden handshake" to someone who has "worked" for five months? Where can I apply for this job please?
SICKENED, PORT ELIZABETH
GOLDEN handshake! What an absolute farce! Take, take, take. That's all these useless incompetent metro officials know how to do!
GATVOL BUSINESS OWNER
JACOB Zuma will have to deal with this issue. He is the one who make decisions. Nelson Mandela Bay is in a crisis, but did Zuma do anything about the ANC staff who use the poor people's money? They are rich, they don't care for the poor.
WELL done, Mr Gordhan. Thank goodness he saw through all the fraud taking place in your municipality. Well done, congratulations.

PROBLEMS WITH MEDICAL SCHEMES
MEDICAL schemes need to be monitored. These people who are running these medical schemes are taking their customers (subscribers) for a ride. I belong to Gems medical scheme. Every year we experience the same problems: medical benefits get exhausted in the second quarter of a year and you have to pay subs for the whole year. How can you pay cash for medical services and pay medical aid simultaneously?
MEDICAL aids battle because people live much longer, the younger members are carrying the old ones with their chronic medication costing more than their monthly contributions!
I WOULD assume medical aids have a budget for each person contributing to a medical fund. Now in my case, I only visit a doctor about twice a year as I am very healthy so far. So the medical aid pockets the remainder of the budget. Just wondering...
RATHER GET COURT CASES OVER
IN the Dewani and Hewitt cases, one would think that these men would want to get to court as soon as possible to prove their alleged innocence! I thought I had read in the press that Bob Hewitt had travelled to Australia not so long ago? Was that trip taken before he had a "heart attack, stroke and found it difficult to travel long distances and function in crowded public places"?
GREAT SPRINGBOK WIN
THE Springboks win by 60 points and everyone now thinks they are world champions. Well, I agree. The All Blacks Supporters Club (Western Cape branch) must be shaking in their boots!
SA RUGBY LIVING IN THE PAST
SA rugby is still in the past. There are no more Northern Transvaal and Transvaal provinces. Gauteng is one province. So why have two Super Rugby teams? If Saru was serious about transformation, the Kings would be in Super Rugby.
DA THE LOSER
ATHOL Trollip, you have so much to learn. The DA are the losers. How many will vote elsewhere when you think you will gain. Stanford Slabbert, you are the best!
