REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
REGARDING selling tapes, they broke the law. What don't you understand? Wake up B Booy.
DON'T be childish here, Mr Miya. I as a BEE listener think there's nothing wrong with Putco Mafani's comments. He comments about himself too, on Sundowns, Stars and all other teams, and about how he was fired at Chiefs. The guy makes us laugh our stresses out. That's why Pirates are suffering, it's because of people like you. I'm sure you are not a regular listener to BEE. Sundowns, Platinum Stars and other teams, even Kaiser Chiefs, have been teased. Putco even talks (jokes) about his failed marriages. Don't stress about small things, man. Putco is an entertainer.
VEZI Miya's letter is 100% correct. Putco hates Pirates with all his heart. Tina must go back to Madam & Eve, she's boring.
TO DA: who says the US naval shooter was Muslim? Only Muslims are expected to condemn the crimes of their co-religionists. Stinks of racist double standards.
CHARGED R13432 for a water bill! Can't be right. Are you running a laundry? Or is the municipality that can't get it right as usual? Can't wait for the DA to take over sooner rather than later.
GANJA should rather stick to his dagga smoking and leave Mandla Seleoane's column for sober readers.
NIGEL Wakeford, your intentions are good in theory. However in practice the material conditions of our society are such that after more than 300 years of oppression, discrimination and dispossession of Africans in particular and blacks in general, it is essential that policies are in place to rectify the past evils. Unfortunately there can be no other reference point for corrective action other than using the same reference point as was used to implement apartheid. As unpalatable as this may be, that is the reality in the context of apartheid legacy. The Bible warns that "the sins of our fathers will visit seven future generations". Let us never forget apartheid was declared "a crime against humanity". What were you doing during National Party rule before April 27 1994?
JUST LOVE FLOYD'S CALL
I JUST love Floyd's Call, referring to President Jacob Zuma as a "half package president". How true!
METRO TRAIN SERVICE PATHETIC
THE metro train service between PE and Uitenhage this last week has been pathetic. No good phoning the metro service, they just don't answer.
SCHOOL IN CHAOTIC STATE
CHAOS at Kwazakhele High is not chaos, it is normal. The East Cape education department is the most absent department. No teachers and the rest are burned out!
WELL DONE TO ALL THE KINGS TEAMS
EP Kings, well done on winning your match. Scott van Breda, well done on your performance and please stay with the EP Kings. Please win your match on Friday. Well done too to the under-21 and under-19 sides as well for winning. If all of the EP Kings teams can up their game every time then you will come out on top at the end of the season and other clubs will know they are playing against the best team.
EP KINGS/SOUTHERN KINGS SUPPORTER
EP Kings: three teams playing in finals this Friday is a remarkable achievement. Pity the games are away but victory is possible – rise fellows!
THE Pumas, if they win the Vodacom Cup, will play the last team in the Premier Currie Cup promotion/ relegation match. If they win that (likewise EP Kings) they will play in the top division.
NUMSA STRIKE SETTLED
NUMSA members were on strike for six weeks which is about 12% of annual earnings lost, but they settled for 10% increase so what did they actually achieve?
GIVE KUDOS TO ALL BLACKS FOR VICTORY
IF the Boks had won the game or championship, bubbly would have flowed and fireworks discharged behind the presentation stage. Nothing for the All Blacks for winning the championship. The presentation team should be ashamed of themselves.
MIKE LANGFORD, WESTERING, PORT ELIZABETH
RUGBY commentary by Pieter Hendricks was an absolute disgrace and embarrassing!
THE Springboks will not beat the All Blacks unless they get rid of Heyneke Meyer.
ALDRIDGE BUTLER, ALL BLACK FOR LIFE
THE All Blacks will always reign supreme, have less gum in their hair and less money in the bank. The rest will battle for second place.
MILLIONS LOST IN PONZI SCHEME
MY understanding of Sharia principles is that interest-earning returns, or more relevant perhaps rewards not commensurate with own efforts, were against the teachings of Islam. But I see prominent Muslims have lost millions from such a scheme.
WAS the money invested by the Jeevas and co declared to SARS?
I WAS at Dora Nginza Hospital over the weekend. It's a shame a sister ill treated people who escorted their family members. My uncle was unfortunately hit by a car, and was still confused and traumatised. The sister did not allow me to escort my own uncle. Would you allow that to happen to your own uncle? There was another off duty professional nurse who was helping her relative. What about my uncle?
A BIG thank you to the doctors and nurses of ward 2b at Livingstone Hospital for dedication and professionalism during my stay in the progressive unit there.
