Per­haps if elec­tions were an an­nual event our roads and hous­ing prob­lems would be ad­dressed more fre­quently?

Ja­cob Zuma wants to de­ploy the army at vot­ers’ reg­is­tra­tion, but gang­ster­ism is not that im­por­tant. Pa­thetic. It also shows the men­tal at­ti­tude of vi­o­lence in our society that we have to be pro­tected to reg­is­ter.

Can you imag­ine Mar­ius Frans­man or Tony Ehren­re­ich in charge? God help the Cape.

Now here’s a scam: 32810 says my iden­tity num­ber is in­valid.

This takes the cherry: mil­i­tary aid re­fused to quell a surge in crime in the West­ern Cape, but they have been mo­bilised by Zuma to help with voter reg­is­tra­tion. Is that not what is known as hypocrisy?

Gwede Man­tashe, South Africa is a demo­cratic coun­try, why are you bring­ing race into your vot­ing cam­paign?


Dur­ing the festive sea­son, dads must sup­port their fam­i­lies. At the of­fice party don’t steal an­other man’s wife and in­vest your bonus wisely.

Are those Par­lia­ment gallery lis­ten­ers not va­grants look­ing for a com­fort­able place to sleep?

Pupils’ art­work taken down: since when does any­one have to “re­spect” the ANC govern­ment, or pres­i­dent? They are our ser­vants, not our masters.

Funny how FNB is quick to run down other banks’ ser­vices in their ex­ag­ger­ated ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paigns. Took me over a month to get my new cards and ac­counts.

Thandi Maqubela: Thandi has al­ways car­ried her­self well. She is a true lady. Stuff hap­pens.

For a cou­ple of years now, we have been told to switch off some ap­pli­ances. Is Eskom ever go­ing to build more power sta­tions? What do they do with all their money?

I am look­ing for­ward to re­tir­ing and feel sorry for the young teach­ers in the fu­ture.

Yagy­dah Adams, I do not agree with your “be­hav­iour of a few should not bring a re­li­gion into dis­re­pute”. Apartheid was wrong, yet there are many to­day that still are very racist. Apartheid did not only ruin Mus­lims, it ru­ined ev­ery­one in this coun­try.

Van Niek­erk, I couldn’t agree more. The Bi­ble and the Qur’an were cre­ated by men for the peo­ple who lived at the time they were writ­ten.

Cha­bane, as if Is­rael re­ally cares if there is a travel ban for of­fi­cials. Is­rael is the envy of the world with in­tel­lec­tu­als, sci­en­tists and they don’t beg for hand­outs.

New scam: I re­ceived a let­ter from over­seas stat­ing I’m an “only liv­ing rel­a­tive” and have ac­cess to over

8 mil­lion. How­ever, my aunt re­ceived the ex­act same let­ter a month ago stat­ing she is the only liv­ing rel­a­tive (she has a dif­fer­ent sur­name) of a dis­tant cousin over­seas and there are mil­lions wait­ing for her. The scam goes un­der the name of In­nex In­ter­na­tional Ser­vices, Va­len­cia, Spain.
