REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
THANK you, Ed Gutsche, for a well written letter. I could not have done better, but unfortunately the people concerned will just brush it aside so we, the ratepayers, will have to take the matter further as you suggested.
ROLAND Williams, I marvel at the way you obfuscate in your frequent missives to this publication when you feel threatened by facts. We taxpayers do not warrant your ability to baffle to receive a bonsella, and that backdated to 2009 nogal and inclusive of the period you were on enforced extended long leave at our expense! Please do us a favour and accept one of those lucrative offers you crow about.
METRO staff salaries: well said, Ed Gutsche, we must take a stand against the looting of our rates and tax contributions!
JAY, PORT ELIZABETH
MORE INTERESTED IN VOTES THAN TRUTH?
ROB Davies, have a look at the pollution and environmental problems that America has because of fracking or are you more interested in votes than the truth?
WELL DONE TO RATEPAYERS GROUP
WELL done! Coalition, we salute you for the stance you have taken. It's about time these fat cats are taken to task for their inefficiency as well as embezzling our hard earned rates and taxes we pay. Also expose these overpaid, inefficient, lazy, good for nothing municipal officials. They have this carte blanche perception that they can do what they will with our money without accountability. Sort them out! Let's withhold our rates until they beg for mercy!
SA HAMSTRUNG BY STRIKES
STRIKES: I have heard a rumour that Ford SA is moving lock, stock and barrel to Thailand. Then what?
WHAT a shambles in this country: those who have jobs don't want to work and those who do not have jobs want to work. It's time the government stomps on these unions for the better good of our country.
DINA PULE: ALL IS FORGIVEN
EISH, "I am sorry" and all is forgiven by the ANC.
WHY AREN'T UNIONS AIDING LIBRARY STAFF?
LIBRARY staff: what are the unions doing? Is there any need for them? Why are people still working on contracts of six months at NMMM? Where are your shop stewards?
BAY COPS HELD ON BRIBERY CHARGES
HOPEFULLY they're fired and go to jail. I know of traffic offenders who got away with a payment of a 2l Coke and some meat pies!
JAY, PORT ELIZABETH
WILL MAYOR TAKE ACTION NOW?
NOW that the Pikoli forensic report is out one is wondering if Oom Ben Fihla will have the power to take act ion against those implicated in the report, even the big guns?
NDODOMZI KIBI, ETINARA
BAY'S squandered millions: yet again the taxi industry wins. This is now more than a joke. What's new, again we are taken for a ride. It is time we implement the rates boycott.
TO Oom Ben Fihla and co at the NMBM, why don't you employ accountants to run the finances? The municipality has no accountants employed. This is shocking!
IF you act like a lame duck, if you behave like a lame duck, if you and your comrades run the metro like a lame duck and if you look like a lame duck, then maybe you are a lame duck!
WHO CAN WE TRUST NOW?
WHO can we trust if the IEC chair is involved in buying her own office in a side deal? She will be running the elections next year! Thank you once again, public protector.
POLICE WOULD HAVE BEEN MASSACRED
MARIKANA: police would have been massacred if they did not shoot in self-defence. See the dangerous weapons in the photo of the protesters.
BID TO STOP LIVESTOCK SHIP FAILS
SHIP of shame: but for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh, we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that portion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy.
MOLLEY, PORT ELIZABETH
SHIP of shame: Jean Nepgen, do you not have a conscience? Shame on you! You will have to live with it for the rest of your life, not me.
VERY DISAPPOINTED ANIMAL ACTIVIST
STOP this evil immediately. God sees, knows how cruel we are to His creation. He is not mocked. We will reap what we sow. This can't be allowed! SPCA must win fight.
STOP GIVING MONEY TO STREET CHILDREN
I WISH people would stop giving money to street children in Uitenhage. They don't buy food! They buy dagga! Flannigan Street is known as the drugs street.
SAYING IN ESSENCE GOD TALKS RUBBISH
CHRISTINA Engela rubbishes claims by the St Marks Congregational Church on the gay issue. I wonder if Christina realises the implications of what she is saying. If St Marks is saying what the Bible is saying and the Bible is inspired by God himself, than she is saying in essence that God is talking rubbish. Who knows more – God or medical research and psychiatric convention about such matters? The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can know it except God?
