Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

TAKE A bow for last Satur­day’s let­ter page! What a read­ing feast and so many mem­o­rable quotes.

From your ex­cel­lent editorial (“The coun­try has the right to ask what on earth the pres­i­dent – and for that mat­ter Jeff Radebe thinks he is do­ing…”) and Bran­dan’s great car­toon, to Premier He­len Zille’s let­ter, (“I wish to pay trib­ute to War­rant Of­fi­cer Kleyn­hans for en­abling pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tor Botha to use his care­fully com­piled data to solve the mur­der and ar­rest the sus­pect…”)

From the hard-hit­ting let­ter by Michael Hardman about the prob­lems that be­set Africa to An­drew Don­ald­son’s per­cep­tive and witty “A Fa­mous Grouse” col­umn which in­cluded the mem­o­rable lines: “Youth leader Peter Mok­aba – a man of­ten de­scribed as a fire­brand and a hot­head, when what they ac­tu­ally meant was stupid” and “Zuma was on the horns of a Malema”.
