ATTACKS ON SOMALIANS
WHY was the Somali shop owner in possession of a gun as a foreigner? They parade their guns in front of the police. They drive death traps of cars, they are a law unto themselves. We allow them in our country and they kill our kids.
MONEY FOR FUNERALS
ONE million rand for funerals! This ANC municipality would rather spend money on the dead and their walking dead councillors, than spend money on the living.
WHAT a farce. No wonder our city is going to the dogs. The ANC-led municipality thinks it can do just what it likes. A rates boycott is beginning to seem like a very good idea.
THE municipality has millions of rands to spend on ANC funerals and to meet certain people's salary increases. What is their problem with library staff? They work very hard and take abuse from the public as well. Now they (NMBM) are threatening to fire the staff.
CHRISTIAN Martin penalised with one month's salary? Try being a temporary teacher in the Eastern Cape who hasn't been paid in six months or more.
UNPAID TEMP TEACHER
NOTE to the DA: So tell me, if and when you take over Nelson Mandela Bay, who are you going to appoint to actually run the metro? Is it just going to be ANC-ish cadre deployment for the party faithful? Or is it going to be qualified and experienced personnel with business skills and low political profiles? I need to know. Politicians do not make good administrators. You haven't got my vote yet.
GCK, for your info libraries are not retail stores. It's a free service. We don't sell books! We don't get overtime! We work 40 hours/week. Thank you.
WHY do so many people complain about their working hours and/or conditions? You have a job, be grateful. My husband only gets one weekend and sometimes three days off per month. He works long hard hours in the retail industry and doesn't complain. We all struggle in some way or other, deal with it.
UNIONS/workers' wages and benefits demands are unrealistic. Mining and all industrial sectors should mechanise and automate instead of paying up to these unskilled and semi-skilled workers. The union movement in this country is destroying our economy and causing low growth rate.
IF the NMBM traffic department is on strike, why are traffic officers shopping at Makro using official vehicles? Enough is enough.
THE pump attendants have protected jobs as self service is prohibited. To demand R6000 per month for a zero added value job is a bloody cheek. Get rid of them.
LOOKING forward to reading in the deaths classified ads: ANC passed away peacefully in 2014. Sadly missed by Roland Williams and other arrogants.
REMOVING Vavi will cause damage on a par with the assassination of Chris Hani.
REPLY TO READERS' VIEWS
MIKE, Mike, I despair. Where is your sense of humour? It was a bit of fun. The only whine I know is without the h enjoyed in a glass with friends.
WHY are people not sticking their noses and mind their own business; leave Jason Wood alone, maybe RM you or your siblings could be in the same situation. Jason is actually a decent man that might need treatment.
M NEGRES, you so right, live with integrity and you will suffer at the hands of those who are evil!
LEON de Villiers, why must Barry de Klerk, Huds and A B phone you to "hear the full story"? We all want to know "the full story". I'm sure the editor will afford you the space to "surprise" us and explain what really happened!
CITY hamstrung by poor leadership. Why does the author Entrepreneur 1984 to?, not supply his name? His article is relevant and possibly if he was identified he too could assist with solutions.
RE: Bleating sheep left on truck from hell! Mr Krall, why did you not report this man to the authorities? That is cruelty in the worst form!
THE RISE OF AGANG
HOW refreshing to see an opposition leader (Dr Mamphela Ramphele) able to connect on the ground with the citizens of SA. Finally, a credible and honest alternative. Wake up for other opposition parties as well.
AGANG SA leader Dr Mamphela Ramphele, you have my vote. So sick of current government. Let's make that change.
AWARD FOR RADISON BLU
RADISON Blu the best hotel in PE? I am sure they were the only entry from PE because the best, they are definitely not.
R412-million airport for Somerset East! Looks like fracking will be coming to the Karoo, as there is no other reason for such an airport in the Karoo!
HOW are houses in Westering valued? Agents don't present lower offers to the sellers in fears of receiving low commision.This should be investigated by The Herald.
OWNERS of killer truck in KwaZulu-Natal should be charged just as the driver for allowing him to drive an unroadworthy vehicle.
