MINE STRIKE OVER
MINERS get R10000 per month wage agreement. They will continue to live in shacks because they want to. Wonder how many will use extra cash to get a house?
BACK to work for miners. If the 22% increase is R11078, where did the claimed "slave wages" of R4000pm first reported come from? Journos please wake up!
IF not all the "strikers" were employees, who organised "rent a crowd"? Just a thought.
LETTING them go is putting them above the law! Well done to South Africa, yet another mistake made by our useless government!
NO LIFEGUARDS AT POOL
WHERE are the lifeguards at Newton Park swimming pool?
REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
MATT Mckechnie, US, a great letter on September 18 ("Boks play worst match yet seen"! Does US mean Maties or just "Us Okes"? Whatever, Bok rugby is going backward fast and nothing I see will change soon!

REGINALD Saptoe, what are you smoking? Whatever it is, it must be good because it has made you talk c*** since before the World Cup.
AS long as Nceba Faku is regional chairman, nothing will come right in NMB. "Faku legally elected" is rubbish.
REGARDING discipline, is Wanie's remark that "education is not important" applicable to local government posts?

JULIUS MALEMA CHANGES HIS TUNE
THEN: "I will kill for Zuma!" Now: "Zuma wants to kill me". What a bunch...
PLEASE give us a break from seeing the ugly face of Julius Malema so frequently on the pages of your newspaper. It just spoils the day!
AIN'T anybody going to call Malema an extremist? Oh sorry, only Muslims are called that.
NO T20 FIXTURES LIST
I WAS forced to buy a Joburg paper to obtain the T20 cricket World Cup itinerary. Why?

COSATU A POLITICAL PARTY
IF Cosatu is donating funds to the SACP and the ANC, it is clear a political party not a workers' union.
