METRO TO PAY FOR JOB BUNGLE
THE Makapela bungle is yet another mess that we rate- and taxpayers will have to pay for, due to incompetent leadership. Roll on next year's elections.
WHAT qualifications does Nobuntu Makapela have to warrant R92000 per month? Money for jam! Just another example of an ANC scam!
BECAUSE of an employee at NMBM who did not know how to do his/her job, an ex-employee is now going to sit at home enjoying a salary of R92000 per month for three years. Enough is enough. I am going to write to Pravin Gordhan and demand an explanation. I will not rest till he sorts out this matter and those responsible are fired.
SOME R92000 a month for the next three years for an idle cadre? And you know what? Nobody will be held responsible for the mess. Bat on.
SHAME, I really feel for Nobuntu Makapela! Totally underpaid for her senior position as strategic manager! I say NMBM must throw in a R20000 car allowance as well!
AND so the gravy train continues – R92000 a month for someone who doesn't have a job description. I wonder what qualification they don't have.
CAN'T BELIEVE IT
NO COMMON SENSE IN DECISION
THE fact that women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia is derived from fatwas delivered by a corrupt clergy devoid of any common sense and legal competence.
BRILLIANT EVENING'S ENTERTAINMENT

UITENHAGE TRAFFIC DEPARTMENT WELL RUN
HATS off to very well run traffic department in Uitenhage. Staff are all very helpful. No standing in queues. Forms checked while you are seated. They all deserve a double bonus.
NEED SPEED BUMPS IN LORRAINE
IT would be nice to have a few speed bumps in Macon Road, Lorraine as the cars and scrambler bikes are using the road as a race track. Come on cops, we need you out here, as there are many pubs around.
ON the subject of humps, a huge one at the end of Diaz Road near the library and also the Woolies hump are ridiculous.
HOW educated can the person be who authorised the new bumps going up in PE? Any person with half a brain can see how these bumps will damage cars travelling at the legal speed limit, not to mention the accidents they will cause.
SAD TO SEE STATE COUNTRY IS IN
IT is so sad having come through the apartheid era and all the pain and suffering it caused now to see our country in the grip of greedy and self seeking individuals who will stop at nothing to enrich themselves. We need to remember the words of the Lord Jesus how he said it is more blessed to give than to receive. Cry the beloved country.
ELECTIONS WILL BE FUN AND GAMES
"ZUMA warns voters against EFF": two leaders who live off the poor and promise the world. The elections are going to be real fun and games!
MANGAUNG ANC! Were you guys sober in that conference? Your president is a joke!
SNOWDEN SHOULD GET NOBEL PRIZE
WHY was Edward Snowden not considered for the Nobel peace prize?
WE VOTED FOR THE GRAVY TRAIN
THE gravy train has run since man invented the wheel. Train drivers and party(ing) passengers are all voted on by us. Tickets paid for by us. Vote for a party that has yet to govern.
GOOD NEWS ABOUT FARM WORKERS
THERE is so much (orchestrated) bad news about farm workers. It is heart-warming to read of the award ceremony for Gamtoos farm workers. So my heroes for the day go to the farmers and Amosa Mabukane for this exciting event.
WHO IS NEW CRICKET BOSS?
WHO is this Malcolm Figg? Recently he was attempting to be involved in EP Rugby, now it's cricket.
DISGUSTING what has happened at EP Cricket. Dr Figg messed up EP in 2003 and now he has come back.
REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
DA, I am a recipient of a pensioner's grant from Sassa. I also watch every penny so I speak from experience. Do you?
DEAR Anonymous, when I went to vote, most of the DA helpers were so-called people of colour. I was greatly encouraged by this. When the DA rules this council maybe we will all eat cake.
ANONYMOUS, why always the black and white?
EXCELLENT letter, councillor Sauls. Well done to you and your team for taking care of the shack disaster victims of Malabar.

CHARLOTTE, pink is pink, it doesn't matter which one. The trees look bright and the message gets through. In George, the same colour was used on trees there.
