HOUSE robberies are up due to unemployment, drugs and RDP housing.
NEW Weapons Act leaves the innocent unprotected from criminals. What a nonsense government.
OUR country is lawless until one wants to help and then the red tape makes it impossible!
SUPER SIX GANG
I WOULD just like to say well done to the SAPS for the sterling work that was done to catch the Super Six gang.
PLEASE would The Herald do some research on this? How many official overseas trips have Bhisho parliamentarians taken in the last five years? And what has each trip cost in terms of flights, accommodation, entertainment etc? What real benefit has any trip (eg to India, New Zealand, Canada, US and now Sweden) been to this province where the teacher-pupil ration is 1:80 in MANY schools and our basic health services are in crisis? On our tax money and thanks to our votes! Also how many of our MPs use government schools and government health services?
LEON de Villiers, please explain "Also the mentality of the people in the communities is different with regard to littering”? Do not generalise. You find littering in all areas. What about those throwing burning cigarettes out their windows in those areas? I was shown the middle finger when hooting at a woman, with her kids on board, for throwing her burning cigarette out the window, on the Mount Road off-ramp.
CHRISTIAN Martin, the Northern Areas remain filthy because they choose to throw their litter wherever they want. Change their "mind set” and you won’t need a political party to clean up their surroundings!
PATRICK Sekoe , if the DA are peacocks , then who are the vultures?
PATRICK Sekoe and Christian Martin, if the DA are peacocks then you and the ANC must be the chameleons of SA politics. You are forever changing your ways.
GERRY, re Leon de Villiers’ comments about people’s mentality toward littering being inherently similar to Stanford Slabbert’s e-mail content? Careful, such a stretch of the imagination could have a rubber-band effect!
THE looters seen in The Herald pictures are merely following the example set by our current government by taking what does not belong to them without any thought of consequences for their actions. Whatever happened to the concept of ubuntu?
I’M very disappointed with what people in the PE townships are doing because we don’t earn much, so can only afford to buy from the Somali-owned shops. These people are helping us. We are all Africans.
VWSA EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR
APPLICATIONS from whites are not welcome in VWSA, ask any employment agency. Yet you want us to buy your cars. Is that part of your "advanced human resource strategy”? No Polo or Golf for me.
BELIEVE me the past (where people were attacked in the valley) is history. Our five Baakens Rangers are doing a fantastic job keeping the public safe.
REPLIES TO READER COMMENTS
ALL Black supporter forgets that the Boks have beaten the All Blacks in the past and not even the so-called best team in the world could win playing with 14 men for 50 minutes.
HYLTON Spencer, you got it in one. Fracking can be the only logical answer. Surprised not to hear about the Karoo folk questioning this.
JPS, libraries take payment from people. Libraries charge for services like photocopies, and things you may have selling on the counters. I don’t get photocopies for free at libraries. Why does my library have books on a table with prices on them marked FOR SALE? Aren’t they suppose to be FREE? As I said, we in retail work 45 hour weeks plus overtime, also on Sunday’s AND we work public holiday’s and still earn less then you do. Thank you.
CONOR Ward, re litter near Addo bad for tourism. My French guest on Saturday and Sunday had one word to say – disgusting! The road to Addo is paved in litter.
RE Jason Wood. Ellie if you call Wood a decent person we don’t. What he did to others he did to us as well. We are two old people who get a pension. Do you call a person that’s charged with fraud decent? I don’t think so.
