How to re­store the dig­nity of Par­lia­ment

CityPress - - Voices -

Ndi­meni East­ern Cape The dig­nity of Par­lia­ment dur­ing the state of the na­tion ad­dress (Sona) will surely be re­stored only when Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma’s term of of­fice ends. Nakedi via SMS Sona is not the time and place to deal with per­sonal grudges. I have the right to watch and lis­ten to the ad­dress. All those with­out man­ners must be dragged out and thrown far away. Manamela Mokhele North west It is very sim­ple, get rid of Zuma and san­ity will pre­vail. Jane Lunga East­ern Cape What a shame. What a ter­ri­ble em­bar­rass­ment for all South Africans Sona was. We can only re­store our dig­nity by get­ting rid of the ANC in gov­ern­ment. The vi­o­lence meted out to the Eco­nomic Free­dom Fight­ers is un­ac­cept­able in a democ­racy. The be­hav­iour of ANC MPs was shame­ful and the at­ti­tude of the ANC to any­one op­pos­ing their views re­flected in their ut­ter­ances. Call­ing peo­ple “dogs”, “rapists”, “sell­outs” and “racists”, all be­cause the op­po­si­tion par­ties are stand­ing up to the theft, cor­rup­tion and mis­man­age­ment of the ANC. The once hon­ourable move­ment is dead. RIP ANC. Mor­ris Bekeweni East­ern Cape The dig­nity of Par­lia­ment can be re­stored if Sona can be used for its pur­pose, not for set­tling scores and as a po­lit­i­cal tool. Molefi Ral­it­sela Gaut­eng The dig­nity of Par­lia­ment can be re­stored if more po­lice mem­bers are de­ployed in Par­lia­ment for se­cu­rity rea­sons. I know, I didn’t elect him, but let’s wait for the elec­tion. Shaluza Tse­lan­ngwe North West The dig­nity of Par­lia­ment can be re­stored by vot­ing the ANC out for good. Jake North West Only if we could get rid of this cor­rupt pres­i­dent.
