REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
WELL said, Barry de Klerk. Your reply to Johnny English regarding his comparison between Ian Bell and Jacques Kallis is spot on.
PATRICK Sekoe, your translation of the Afrikaans proverb was completely wrong. And I don't want to be a patriot, your government is corrupt and all of them are jokes.
HERALD letters Tuesday August 13 – Bill Bayley, "Kings staff, fans whiners"? No! Kings staff and fans are winners! It's been great being part of the Super 15 adventure. We've loved it. Many people got very involved. We all benefited. It could happen again. Cheeky Watson has done well. Naushad Omar, "Religions not about doctrine": your letter is well constructed and brings unity to many. It's not the last word on the issue, but indeed a very wise thinking. Nfuthuko Dumaskude, "Sentimental voting's killing SA": you're so right. We need to vote for what is best for our country, not what our tradition expected. Facts have emerged which should create new allegiances.
BLESSED are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Let us hope you never irritate your fellow man, Lisa.
PATSY, God will bless you in the highest for what you have done for the animals. You are the best hearted person I've ever met. I love you for all you do. You should be made Woman of the Year. We thank God for you.
WHAT is magnificent about either the Australian or New Zealand national anthems? They are simplistic at best.

PURGING GOING ON
WHAT happened to Zwelinzima Vavi is a purging of Xhosas in the alliance by the presidency. The security cluster ministers are all Zulus.This started with purging of the Zola Skweyiya, Buyelwa Sonjica and Membathisi Mdladlana.This ANC is a Zulu ANC. Now it is coming to Cosatu affiliates. Thobile Ntola of Sadtu will have a Zulu to replace him. Jacob Zuma is promoting tribalism. I'm no longer proud of the ANC. I'll vote ANC, but won't campaign for JZ. Zuma is taking the ANC down. Watch it.

NEW TACTIC BY MALEMA
RUDZANI Floyd Musekwa, our friend, Julius Malema, is not looking for guidance. This is a new tactic, he is looking for support from the black states. A leopard does not change its spots overnight. Watch that wolf in sheep's clothing, he doesn't fool me.
FINE THE DOG OWNERS
DELINQUENT dog owners are in the majority AND pollute our cities with constant, unlawful noise. They must be severely fined and the dogs removed. Zero tolerance.
PEOPLE complain about dogs that bark. What about neighbours who play loud music right through the night and early mornings?
WHETHER OR NOT TO VOTE DA
THE DA will not be getting my vote next election.
LAWRENCE Troon you are a stoker of note. Jealousy makes you nasty. Give credit where credit is due. The truth of the matter is that the ANC cannot hold a candle to the DA and you know it. Your guys' day is up. The ANC has been weighed in the balance and has been found wanting. Join the DA while you still can.
THE most disturbing feature of the list of staff and players leaving the Kings is that the Watson name does is not featured. Jan
THE Herald often has pictures of cubs bred at Seaview Lion Park. Once hand-reared they cannot be placed into the wild. Please could the editor be as diligent in following up what happens to these cubs when they grow up, before anyone considers supporting this "circus"!
AFTER years without a municipal manager, just before our former mayor leaves office, he quickly appoints someone in the full knowledge that his time left in office is short. The current mayor and his deputy are doing a sterling job under severe pressure. Let the former mayor answer why he appointed Msengana so quickly.
HOW disappointing. Knowing the financial challenges of the municipality, how dare you demand a R3.2-million settlement from the ratepayers of this cash-strapped metro for spending less than three months at work? You are a ruthless money monger just like your predecessor Graham Richards.
NO matter how comrade Robert Mugabe is judged by some throughout the world and some saying he's too old to run the country of Zimbabwe, he has proved himself as a natural leader of the African soil that will never bow down. It is a pity that Mugabe seems to be alone in this resistance.
ZWELINZIMA KA MATYU, NEW BRIGHTON, PE
SO, nearly 20 years into democracy, the party that brought liberation to the working masses, is unable to find it in them to attend the Marikana memorial. A massacre on the scale of Sharpeville and Boipetong. Cosatu, Numsa, SACP also unable to show support. Let's hope the voters remember who showed them the middle finger!
WELL done to the municipality on cleaning verges on Marine Drive opposite the picnic areas. How long will dirt and grass now lie there before it becomes overgrown and unsightly?
