I believe comrade Lindiwe Sisulu and comrade Cyril Ramaphosa can make the best combination because both members are against corruption and they were never involved in corruption. The challenge of our country now is corruption.

I personally do not think Lindiwe Sisulu will make it even to the threshold, simple because of the divisions within her campaign, as some want money only for themselves and her recent conduct just defeated her before the race. Her campaign managers are opportunists who wants to get rich overnight, as they are driving big cars and spending most of their time flying around without working the ground. She has lost it for good.

@City_Press or facebook.com/citypress.co.za I believe Lindiwe should be president as she has the brains and etiquette to sort out the mess we are in. I have long been an ardent admirer of her and truly believe in her ability to govern. She does not suffer fools. I hope to meet her some day to have a long discussion.

I don’t think we should have a female president at any cost. If there are no suitable female candidates, then I would rather see a capable man in that position.

Some people who were in exile or who were jailed while in the struggle for the freedom of this country think they are the only ones who contributed to democracy. We were inside taking all the suffering that the oppressors brought on us. Shall we say that those who were exiled ran away? People like Lindiwe Sisulu must stop this kind of talk.

I think Lindiwe Sisulu is oblivious to the current trajectory. She really thinks being a Sisulu still matters. Our current challenges require a leader who will save us from this unfortunate paradigm of a corrupt environment and the general malfeasance created by the irresponsible leadership of the ANC. We don’t need a leader who comes with the family history and political credentials. Our kids need a purified and perfect country without a culture of entitlement and impunity. Government would be able to sustain financial assurance to fund free education if we increased our efforts to stop all the corruption and recover the billions of rands being stolen every day – right in front of ordinary South Africans. We do not need ministerial upgrades or some of the deputy ministers, and gala evenings must not be tolerated. We are finding means to place the financial woes on poorer citizens by moving away from the real crises.
Remember this loan will affect students in future. The duration of payments will add to the real challenge of building a career, having children, owning a house, marriage and then dealing with payments from private institutions. I stand with the commission because it is really the only help.

The national lottery has the potential to assist in funding higher education. If 50c from the draw of each ticket can be channelled into one student account, this would help with contributions. Lotto has four draws in a week and more than 20 million people play the lottery.
