EN PASSANT

I RE­FER to Farouk Araie’s let­ter, June 6 about Lindiwe Sisulu tow­er­ing above the rest of the party.

It does not say much about some­one if they are pre­pared to lead a group of Gupta pup­pets.

She is an avid sup­porter of JZ 783 and has been silent with re­gards to ten­der­preneur­ship, the Arm’s Deal, Nkandla, Prasa, SABC, Pub­lic Works, Trav­el­gate, Marikana and the Zup­tas to men­tion but a few.

Our gov­ern­ment is a can of worms and our only hope is that they get to walk the plank in the 2019 elec­tions.

Maybe Mr Araie wrote this let­ter while in a cer­tain Sax­on­wold she­been? Rand­burg EV­ERY time an MP, em­ployee of Telkom, Eskom, SABC, mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties etc. is fired for good rea­son (mis­man­age­ment, ir­reg­u­lar ten­der­ing, fraud, cor­rup­tion, bribery etc) they quickly go the courts, Supreme Court and then the Con­sti­tu­tional Court as to why they should not be re-in­stated.

They are once again wast­ing tax­pay­ers’ money as the costs of the cases are not paid by the in­di­vid­ual, but by the pub­lic.

One case in par­tic­u­lar, is the judge who was found guilty of racial abuse and drink­ing while driv­ing (and bash­ing down a wall of a house).

An­other judge had the de­cency to re­sign from her post for racist re­marks.

He is still sus­pended, af­ter 10 years on full pay.

This is not fair. He should be fired and lose his pen­sion.

Once again mil­lions are wasted on his salary.

Our courts are jammed with their silly cases, when we need to pros­e­cute real crim­i­nals who are ter­ror­is­ing this coun­try with rape, mur­der, burn­ing of bod­ies etc.

When will the gov­ern­ment stop these per­for­mances by these prima don­nas?

We have so many im­por­tant mat­ters to sort out in this coun­try­that need our ur­gent at­ten­tion. De Wet­shof WITH the lat­est de­ba­cle around He­len Zille’s tweet and the DA sus­pend­ing her and then not (a bit like the Molefe saga); it seems Zille over­played her role.

Zille has long di­min­ished any sig­nif­i­cant po­si­tion within the DA but for be­ing an MPL and premier of the West­ern Cape.

One of the perks is a lofty res­i­dence called Leeuwen­hof set at the foot of the fa­mous Ta­ble Moun­tain and just up the road from Par­lia­ment.

All pre­vi­ous in­hab­i­tants of this res­i­dence hardly ever left of choice.

All were forced to va­cate when they ei­ther lost favour or power.

The Cape Doc­tor (howl­ing winds of the Cape known for keep­ing it clean) seems to be at it again and it seems it is set to visit Leeuwen­hof pretty soon. Glen­more Cres, Dur­ban North
