POLICE APPOINTMENT REVERSED
RIA Phiyega promised us an excellent administration. Can we be now certain that she is clean, criminally? I recommend Col Horack, of the PE SCCC, for the post of national commissioner for SAPS. Oopsy! He is white.
IN real life our national police commissioner was in personnel management. Obviously not her strong point in her new job. Why is it always the DA that exposes all the dodgy government deals and appointments?
A COMMISSIONER for two hours? Phiyega elects not to mention the drunk driving charge.
SHOP STEWARDS GET PAID DURING STRIKE
NUMSA's shop stewards get paid while the striking members and their families must go hungry.
DEMAND, demand, strike, strike. There is an easy solution for employers: have some courage, give them 6%. If the workers refuse and proceed to stuff up the country even further, close the factory and go to a country where people want to work! Enough is enough.
FILL THE STADIUM TO SUPPORT EP KINGS
EP Kings, well done on winning again this past weekend. Keep it up and win all your remaining matches. Come on EP Kings-Southern Kings supporters, fill the stadium on Friday too, 45000 spectators. I feel the players deserve it and they will be so glad to know we are all standing behind them.
RATES BOYCOTT CALL
IT's all very well calling for a rates boycott, but it will not work for all. I, for one, have prepaid electricity and unfortunately if you owe the municipality any money, it just takes it off every time you buy electricity! So how now?
LONWABO, you obviously haven't noticed that the municipality does not need to be destabilised by any party . The municipality has done a great job of this already. Secondly, a rates boycott would not be necessary under the DA. Seems to me you vote for the evil devil you know. Try a different devil, you might be surprised.
THE Samwu shop steward comment's in Friday's Herald are typical of union/ANC propaganda.
JORDAAN RESPONSIBLE FOR 2010 FIASCO
SAFA president? I wouldn't trust Danny Jordaan as a gardener after the World Cup fiasco for which he should be held responsible.
WALTER SISULU UNIVERSITY BANKRUPT
WELL done, ANC. For the first time in the history of RSA a university is bankrupt! Viva ANC.
WHAT A MESS!
WENT to Uitenhage last week to renew our drivers' licences, only to find the offices locked because the staff were on strike. The road to Uitenhage is strewn with garbage for about 3km. The area on both sides of the road is a rubbish dump. Instead of having council meetings in steak houses, use that money to clean up PE. It is a disgrace to see how the taxpayers' hard earned money is wasted. Jacob Zuma's holiday cost taxpayers R1.6-million. What next?
CARS STOLEN IN WALMER
WHAT's happening at Sixth Avenue, Walmer? In the last couple of weeks cars have been stolen. Where are the guards?
BILLY, WALMER SHOPPER
BUDGET FOR CIVIL SERVICE SCHOOL?
"IT'S back to school for public servants": will Lindiwe Sisulu provide a budget? Parliament must also undergo the same treatment because we as citizens are also struggling with service delivery.
MAJOLA MUST PAY BACK BONUS MONEY
I DO hope that Gerald Majola will be made to pay back the R4.7-million, as well as his legal fees!
CONCERNED CRICKET FAN
LITTLE PUBLICITY FOR LAKE FARM FETE
THE Color Run was splashed all over the Herald last week and was a success (well done PE), yet the Lake Farm Country Fete received a hardly any exposure and small photo on page 5 afterward – unfair reporting on something that supports the disabled sector.
RUDZANI FLOYD MUSEKWA, YOU'RE A STAR!
FLOYD's Call August 23, "Beginning of the end for EFF as Luthuli strikes": your articles are my absolute best! You never fail to extract a hearty chuckle. Thank you and keep them coming.
GAIL AMBER ALLEN
RUDZANI's article on Mamphela Ramphele's disclosure was insightful, mature and well balanced. If only there were 44 million others of similar intelligence and value system, we would be the No1 country in the world, instead of near rock bottom.
DON'T DRIVE THE DOCTORS AWAY
"RAPE not detected": whoever is querying this doctor's qualifications is making a mistake. If no evidence was found, why run to the newspaper? How can you detect a doctor's capability? Eastern Cape hospitals are already in a poor state with not enough doctors. Do you want to chase them also away?
PAGAD NEEDED IN BAY
PAGAD, I salute you. We in PE needed you ages ago. Alwin Labans, how can you not know if this info was discussed? Crime-free PE, here we come.
STOLE THE POT OF GOLD
SOUTH Africa: the rainbow nation that found its pot of gold – then promptly stole it.
