THE ACVV has been involved with care of the aged for many years and the negative publicity is uncalled for. Have any doctors confirmed the cause of the strokes?
I DE KLERK
RONEL Bosch (ACCV): shame on you for evicting pensioners. Who is your God?
PORTRAITS OF HEROES
MAKANA to unveil permanent exhibition of its portraits of heroes in the Grahamstown City Hall. The line-up includes Robert Mugabe! Can someone please explain? What a disgrace.
ZUMA MISSING IN ACTION
SO another strike on the cards and where is President Jacob Zuma? Out of the country of course. This country is doomed.
GOOD COP, BAD COP
SEVENTEEN years ago, I had a terrible experience in life and I needed the help of the police. I went to one police station and got a "no care" response. Went to Kabega Park police station and was helped with dignity! Keep up the good work, Kabega Park police station. Not all police are bad!
DE VILLIERS v MARTIN
WHILE I seriously hold no brief for the ANC and Christian Martin, I believe the different race groups need to bury the hatchet and not in each other's heads. The DA's Leon de Villiers, like Stanford Slabbert, spoke out of turn when he accused the folk of Helenvale of having a litter mentality as opposed to people in Summerstrand. I thought politicians were supposed to be diplomatic. You really need to apologise, Mr De Villiers, and be more patient with your flock.
JOSHUA Horn, I know Christian Martin's true colours too. He is a "crosstitute" and has a set of principles for every occasion. He was useless as an MEC and delivered nothing for the people in the northern areas. Non-delivery in our area is as a result of the ANC and its incompetent deployees. All they're good at is to plunder our resources and lack the ability to govern.
BOY FROM THE NORTHERN AREAS
KENYAN MALL MASSACRE
THE silence from the Muslim leadership in South Africa denouncing the Kenyan massacre is deafening.
WHY must the public of PE accept junkmail in the form of advertising leaflets in our mailboxes and littered throughout our suburbs every week? Surely, we don't have to accept unaddressed mail that we don't read?
HELP me, please. Nine municipal workers and one supervisor to dig one small hole in Westbourne Road? And for this we are paying rates. Roll on the boycott.
IS IT true that motorists are being fined R1000 for not stopping behind the white line at a stop street? Does the traffic department issue the fine in person or are you caught on camera? What about the fact that at many dangerous intersections the white lines are not even visible? For instance, at the traffic lights at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Heugh Road, where many accidents happen. Or the pedestrian crossing opposite the Catholic church creche on Eighth Avenue? There are many other unmarked intersections in Port Elizabeth. Can the traffic department be held liable when there is an accident at one of these poorly marked crossings? The traffic department has neglected to paint the lines on the road! The roads are not roadworthy and not safe. Someone must be fined or fired. Or hire someone to do the job!
WHEN was the last time anyone ever saw a traffic officer or traffic vehicle patrolling Cape Road between William Moffett and Greenacres, during peak hours?
THE EU and Britain's decision to lift sanctions against Zimbabwe is the correct one as the main victims of sanctions have been the poorest of the poor. The EU and Britain should now lobby for the lifting of sanctions against Cuba.
ANC – when we vote, we vote for you. Bhisho is destroying Nelson Mandela Bay. Dr Chabula is the poor people's hero. We want her to act in this position as she acted before. Gwede Mantashe and Stone Sizani intervene – this is your province.
