On the road
Dixon Njamela, you say your taxi was fined for not having brake lights.your vehicle is not roadworthy and that’s the reason you got a fine. You complain about cyclists being rich and above the law, but come on, I know many people who use bicycles who can’t afford cars. You are providing a service to commuters, so please ensure the vehicle is roadworthy. Far too many lives have been lost in unroadworthy taxis.
Dixon Njamela’s letter refers: How can riding a bicycle be for the rich? It’s the main means of transport among the poor, hence no mirrors, and so on. But taxis are a menace and dangerous on our roads.
I took some time off work to renew my vehicle licence only to find Goodwood traffic department staff had also taken time off to have their Christmas party. Can this be cited when next a traffic officer wants to fine me for driving an unlicensed vehicle? Already they close their offices at 3.30pm on weekdays and are closed on weekends. This city
really doesn’t work for me.
Weak, insecure and morally bankrupt Jacob Zuma is surrounding himself with people of the same ilk in powerful positions. It’s a vicious cycle. Who do they think they’re fooling?
Cele must pay back all the money he has squandered and be charged with common theft.
Simelane judgment: Thank goodness the Supreme Court of Appeal will not be cowed. Judge Navsa and fellow judges of the SCA offer us hope that the rot and arrogance of the ANC government may yet be stopped.
I hope the protesters against the Protection of State Information Bill outside South Africa House will be joined by Peter Hain, the Anglican clergy and the British Congress of Trade Unions, but I am not holding my breath.
Spoilt Juju is a just a big joke – finish and klaar.
