Should we blame foreigners?
FJohn Mojalefa North West oreigners should go back to their countries because, in future, they will wage war against us. Government should stop giving these people permits. In their countries, no one can do what they are doing – you will be killed or arrested.
The police should arrest those who displayed weapons to the media.
The minister should ensure that our laws on foreign nationals are strict. Our borders should not allow everyone in.
Foreigners’ visits should be monitored well. They are too many and the South African government must learn from other countries such as the US, where foreigners have limited powers. Kgosi Thulo Free State South Africa and South Africans are in danger of losing the war if the threat by many foreigners of teaming up against us becomes a reality.
Better deal with them now than regret it later. These people do not respect us one bit; if they did, they would not be threatening us with retaliation.
We are their hosts and, if they feel threatened, they must just return to their countries and lay a formal complaint with our embassies in their respective countries. Sofi via SMS I am sorry, but I don’t like what these guys from Nigeria are doing to our country. I watch them every day selling drugs to people – even to schoolchildren – right in front of my workplace. And the police befriend them. Sad. Malusi Gauteng The people of Tshwane and Joburg voted the ANC out of power so they can attack fellow Africans.
Now Africa is retaliating. Why do we allow ourselves to be misled by unknown community forums on matters of national importance? Noksie Keswa Western Cape Yes, this is a witch-hunt. They are looking for a smoking gun. It’s pathetic. Ntokozo Gauteng I think this is a political witch-hunt. Those who dig a pit will fall into it themselves. Thou shalt not touch Pravin Gordhan. Jane Ilunga Eastern Cape It is always interesting to see the selective investigations. If the same criteria were used for all government employees and well-connected ANC people, the jails would be full of ANC bigwigs. Leave Jonas alone and stop wasting more taxpayer rands. Sies, ANC. So typical. P Pilane North West Why is there a probe into Jonas just when Brian Molefe has been sworn in as an MP? The attempt to purge Gordhan failed, now the gun is aimed at Jonas. We aren’t so stupid that we don’t see the strategy to loot Treasury. This is part of all President Jacob Zuma’s plans to make way for Molefe to go to Treasury; for the Guptas to benefit; and to get nuclear power stations. Yusuf Omar Gauteng What a pathetic attempt to dishonour someone with great integrity. I have worked closely with this man, who has given so much to the advancement of our country. There is no place in this government, it seems, for people who still fight for the ideals we struggled for. Leave Jonas alone. Mzi Tau Eastern Cape When will this stop? The ANC is sadly doing what I hoped and prayed it would never do – dying a violent death. This is a witch-hunt. June Britten Free State The ANC is a disgrace. Getting rid of the good guys like Jonas and Gordhan is leaving our Treasury open to Zuma and the Guptas to capture assets. This is what our thug president is aiming for. Zuma is a captain of deception. He wears his ignorance like a badge of honour.
