THE Somalis are here to stay. The xenophobic attacks on foreigners are unacceptable! But then, to go and loot their shops and burn them? What does this say about South Africa and our people?
SO the Somalis want the SA government to protect them? How many are here legally? I don't condone the looting, but their presence is perceived to be an economic and financial threat.
PC LOXTON, PE
BRIAN Witbooi's front page photo (of the looting) on Tuesday is timeless. Reminds of Marie Antoinette's time – a sad reflection.
WHAT a disgusting photo on your front page: "Residents go bananas". It looked like a feeding frenzy but instead it was a stealing frenzy.
HOW do Somali nationals come to be in possession of firearms? You need to be a SA citizen to legally own one.
MARTIN v DE VILLIERS
CHRISTIAN Martin, stop blaming the DA. The residents of the Northern Areas like to squat in front of their houses with litter around them instead of cleaning up.
CHRISTIAN Martin has the audacity to blame the DA for the filth in the Northern Areas, yet it is the ANC policy of a two-weekly collection rate that causes the problem.
SO the DA's Leon de Villiers comments about the "mentality of people in the communities is different". Is that not inherently similar to Stanford Slabbert's e-mail content? Again just shows the complete lack of DA transformation.
SASCO at NMMU have redefined the word modesty. Apparently it now means that when you make a mess of things you just say nothing.
REPLY TO READERS' COMMENTS
THE All Blacks have beaten the Boks even before Bismark and his disgusted fan were born. They'll do it again, this time in SA, minus Carter and Romaine Poite.
WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT THE HERALD?
If it wasn't for the media, how would we know what is going on in PE? Thank you to The Herald. I make sure I buy one every day. Keep on smiling, I will pay for the stitches. Waggie
