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 face­­ 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.

Won­der Modise Gaut­eng

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.
