KENYAN MALL MASSACRE
EBAHIEM Astrie and Farouk Meyer do have valid points in reply to Malcolm Dodds's comments about the deafening silence of local Muslims to the mall massacre. The West and others do have much to answer for in their quest for energy security. However, they are still not condemning the massacre of innocents. How lucky they are to live in a country of free speech, equal gender rights, etc, versus those stuck in conservative Sharia lands.
ONE eyed attempt to justify Kenya and church attacks – disgusting!
BOY SHOCKED AT PENGUIN POOL
CHARMAINE Wynne tells us that Bayworld's animals are wild, so why are the poor creatures kept in captivity?
SO Mom, what was your child doing at the fence? Is this his norm?
BAYWORLD: I was shocked to read about the incident involving the electric fence!
REPLIES TO COMMENTS ON OTHER TOPICS
ELVIOUS, ask any Zimbabwean who has to try to eke out a living here, thousands of kilometres away from his or her family, what he or she thinks of Robert Mugabe. He destroyed Zim and the futures of many people. Hopefully the Zimbabweans' tenacity and spirit will pull through once Mugabe is gone. There is always hope...
ALL you have proved in your SMS to The Herald, Elvious Ndongeni, is that you support genocide and that you are a racist. Shame on you.
EDDIE, you are clearly anti-Bok or know nothing about rugby. Adriaan Strauss was clearly grabbed by the testicles and definitely didn't laugh at it. In fact he was incensed and chased after the culprit. Strauss is a calm man and an absolute gentleman so for him to react like that shows what happened.
READER, if the tenants paid their rental to Imizi they would not need expensive lawyers. It's easy. Just pay and there will be fewer problems.
I OFTEN get several of the same leaflets in my box. Vote to ban all unaddressed mail. Electronic media allows one to "unsubscribe" from unwanted advertising. Why must we take this litter?
CHRISTIAN Martin, if there is any explaining to do, it is by you and your kind. When are you and your ANC comrades going to do something about striking and looting?
REAL MEN HAVE RESPECT
IN this country we have a saying that you are really a man when you are circumcised. But why are we still doing such things as attacking foreigners and being xenophobic? That shows we are not men enough. To be real man is to have respect for yourself and another human being, but not only going to the bush.
WELL DONE TO THE CAR WINNERS
WELL done to the car winners. I won a car in a competition 10 years ago in Durban – a great feeling. Still got it. Enjoy.
"SPARKS fly in power battle" (September 23): so this is what the white racists are paying for – illegal connections by electricity thieves. The photo shows it all. Can I tamper with my box?
RINGO ONE OF WORST DRUMMERS
ON Thursday, your article about the French honouring Ringo Starr stated that he was rated as one of the world's best drummers. As rock groups go, he was possibly one of the worst. Everyone knows that the late Keith Moon, of The Who, was the world's best. But ironically, Starr's son, Zak Starkey, is today one of the best.
POVERTY AND MANY CHILDREN
FLOYD'S Call: really, if you are living in poverty, you should not have seven children! Why should you get a free house and services? I studied hard and worked and saved for a flat.
PRESENTLY DISADVANTAGED RATEPAYER
ANC VOTERS REAPING THE REWARDS NOW
TRAFFIC department chaos: sorry we can't help everybody, because 15 employees are on sick leave. Well done to those who voted for the ANC. You are now reaping all the rewards that were promised to you, left standing outside and still waiting for help since 1994. Eish, it seems like things got much better after 2007, so for those of you who still have blinkers over your eyes you can start removing them now.
SUPPORTERS of corrupt leaders deserve to be unemployed and living in poverty. That is the fruit of their decisions.
WHILE the ANC leaders are corrupt, or are seen to be, and live the life of luxury, with there being no service delivery, strikes and civil disobedience will only escalate. It is good news that will prove to be the demise of the ANC. But who will take up the leadership vacuum? The DA is too white and conservative. Agang maybe is our hope.
FIX INFRASTRUCTURE FIRST
THE mayor's plans for a "Garden of Remembrance": as a ratepayer and as I just know our money will be used for this unnecessary expenditure, I will stop paying unless I see a vast improvement in PE infrastructure which should be in about 20 years. Only then, Mr Mayor, can you have your garden.
REMARKS MUST BE INVESTIGATED
THE SA Human Rights Commission, the DA and the ANC must investigate if the DA's Leon de Villiers's comments about people's mentality in the northern areas could be attributed to racism.
WHAT ABOUT ROBOT WORKERS FOR SA?
I SEE a robot lightens the load by two-thirds for strawberry farmers in Japan. Can't we import a couple for all our striking workers?
