IT WASN’T ME
FGeorge Mtsweni Gauteng P3 irst it was Qedani Mahlangu, now its Bathabile Dlamini. One wonders how many more incompetent, negligent “ministers” are out there? Dlamini’s case will not have any remedial impact on any potential crisis, because as long as they are not exposed, they feel they have the looming crisis under control. SS Masangane Gauteng Paying the cost of the court application will in no way prevent future crises, but will definitely act as a deterrent. Too much public money has been wasted. Gaolalhe North West Dlamini has to pay the costs of the court application, but because accountability in South Africa is meant for junior officials and those forces on the left, she will violate the Constitutional Court’s decision – as is the norm with our leaders – and she will not pay. Lunga Western Cape Dlamini should not pay because it is just going to motivate them to make more blunders. The money comes from us taxpayers and, who knows, Cash Paymaster Services might pay on her behalf. Enos Free State Yes, she has to pay for the court application and that will ring the bell for others. We cannot forever allow people entrusted with authority to misuse our trust and resources. They will continue to neglect their duties and use our resources to defend their negligence in courts. Our government is being run by community groups, not by elected people. They live on a different planet. Clement T Tlhoaele Gauteng She must pay. It will set a good precedent to teach others a lesson. Their misdemeanours are tantamount to raping the loyal vote. I cast my vote for the ANC because of the many great erstwhile leaders of our movement. I don’t want to be made a homeless political vagrant owing to this arrogance. Oupa Mooketsi via SMS Yes, she must pay for the application because it will make politicians think before they act.
