We need to be warned about storms

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - LETTERS -

Surely with all the tech­nol­ogy avail­able in all walks of life these days, the SA Weather Ser­vice is aware of mas­sive storms build­ing up and should fore­warn us?

Alerts are of no use to any­one af­ter the fact be­cause by then we have al­ready been bat­tered to pieces. Sue San­ral, the peo­ple try­ing to en­force e-tolls on us, con­sid­er­ably in­creased the road sur­faces on roads and the catch­ment area for stormwa­ter but for­got to pro­vide suf­fi­cient drainage, hence the flood­ing of high­ways. What a bunch of char­lies. MS

I agree with Martin Zag­neov about treat­ing pam­phlet sellers with kind­ness and re­spect. The same goes for car guards. They are all try­ing to sur­vive in an in­creas­ingly hos­tile and dif­fi­cult en­vi­ron­ment. And who knows – that pam­phlet may be just what you are look­ing for! An­nie

Cliff Buch­ler, thanks for your walk­ing story of which I am also a mem­ber in my old age. By the way, there is some­thing far worse and that’s con­verted cy­clists! Leon B

Dark­ness reigns ... power out due to heavy rain. It is our rainy sea­son, pa­thetic city power. Can’t even ad­vise on du­ra­tion! Gasp­ing

Si­wela, the “Zuma Mon­ster Truck” will un­for­tu­nately con­tinue to smash and flat­ten the Mini Mi­nor! Phillip

Martin Wil­liams, just imag­ine Mbalula and Trump get­ting to­gether. The two would be tweet­ing one another day and night. Heh heh heh! Hawk Eye

Kebby Maphat­soe (MKMVA), the for­eign forces in­volved in your fac­tion fight­ing are based in a She­been in Sax­on­wold. Jake

So the goose-step­ping MK vet­er­ans are wag­ing war against one another. The “Red Ants” would give the toy soldiers a hid­ing. Don­ald

Nathan Cheiman, you are 100% cor­rect about the clowns at Eskom. They don’t know their bums from their el­bows. An­gelo

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa, are you sure you didn’t mean to say: we have a “rogue ele­phant” sit­ting in the Union Build­ings? Thabo

Read­ing your ed­i­to­rial on “Top traf­fic cop fails, gets 93% pay hike”, is noth­ing out of the ordinary. In SA it’s not a mat­ter of no-work, no-pay for the big shot of­fi­cials, it’s no-work, more-pay! Paul J

The for­mer Gaut­eng health MEC Qedani Mahlangu should be charged for the deaths of the 118 pa­tients she trans­ferred from Life Esidi­meni. Max

Mmusi Maimane, you are low­er­ing your­self and the DA to the same level as Tony Ehren­re­ich and his racist Cosatu mob­sters. Frans
