Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

My el­derly friend had the un­for­tu­nate ex­pe­ri­ence of hav­ing to visit Dur­banville clinic. The staff and doc­tor were rude. The two preg­nant ladies who were first in the queue were helped last. Surely th­ese peo­ple must re­alise that treat­ing pa­tients, es­pe­cially the el­derly, with dig­nity and re­spect will make a very long wait just a bit more bear­able.

When will South Africans start real­is­ing that times have changed? Xhosa ini­ti­ates are dy­ing ev­ery year. Th­ese boys die in the name of cul­ture.

Naushad Omar, I hope you read Mike Charles’s let­ter in Cape Points July 4 – a good sum­mary of Is­rael’s his­tory. Please take the trou­ble to read and re­search the sit­u­a­tion there and you will see the glar­ing truth that the so-called Pales­tini­ans have re­fused ev­ery at­tempt by Is­rael and the UN to es­tab­lish a two-party state. Please stop your ob­vi­ous anti-semitic garbage.
