REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
"OFFICIALS must support the ANC": Viwe Sidali, you are living in a dream world. You and your comrades should hang your heads in shame. Your comrades do not know right from wrong, hence the out of control corruption.
"HELP pupils of all races": come on, Brian B, you are speaking of forefathers, who owned farms, mines, shops, big houses, and had millions and billions of rands, and paid the black forefathers nothing. So the money of white grandparents is in the hands of their grandchildren and the black grandchildren have nothing, so stop complaining.
TEMBALETU, WELLS ESTATE, PORT ELIZABETH
I AGREE with D Stewart regarding Andile Masuku, the SABC3 weather presenter. Not only is it difficult to understand what she is saying, but to make matters worse she stands right in front of the weather chart!
COPS WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS
HOW can we expect any country in the world to invest in South Africa when huge numbers of police officers serving in the SAPS have criminal records! South Africa has now become the laughing stock of the world!
TAXI INDUSTRY DISGRACE
IT is a disgrace to read in The Herald of August 26 that taxi bosses employed someone without seeing his qualifications, someone who can't remember even when he passed his matric. I can tell you now the year you pass your matric is like the year you went to the bush, the only year you will never ever forget. I want to know where those directors are coming from. It's really a shame for the taxi industry. I know many people from the industry who are highly educated and they can do better.
LET'S BEAUTIFY STREETS OF UITENHAGE
IT is spring so let's beautify the streets of Uitenhage, plant flowers in the potholes.
COUNCILLORS CAN START A TEA CLUB
REGARDING the need for councillors' refreshments, why not have a "tea club" where each person who desires snacks puts his or her own money in a "kitty" each month to pay for teas, etc.
ARRANGE RATES BOYCOTT
DA leaders in Uitenhage and PE, please call public meetings to arrange a rates boycott. We have had enough of the municipality's pathetic service delivery.
YOU DID IT ALL YOURSELF, BEN FIHLA
BEN Fihla, you say The Herald has put our city in disrepute. No Mr Mayor, you did that all by yourself. It's time for you to resign and take Chippa Ngcolomba with you.
