Pol­i­tics

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor Thuli Madon­sela must just do her work. She must re­frain from play­ing to the gallery. She would do good to un­der­stand that show­boat­ing, as much as it makes one a dar­ling to fans, can also lead to own goals. – Thando Wababa.

Protest­ing South Africans, don’t de­stroy the lit­tle you do have. It wastes money, time and other re­sources. Vote for a change of gov­ern­ment. The only thing our thiev­ing, self-serv­ing politi­cians care about are their cushy jobs and ma­te­rial com­fort. Don’t vote for the same old, fraud­u­lent, un­demo­cratic fat­cats again. Put them out of their jobs. Vote for change.

Mr Ramaphosa, many of us whites had set our hopes on you af­ter your reen­try into pol­i­tics, see­ing you as the fu­ture saviour of the ANC and the per­son who would put our coun­try right af­ter the dis­as­trous Zuma years. Sadly, with just a few words, you’ve blown that hope.

I’m cu­ri­ous to know what wealthy black peo­ple in our coun­try are do­ing to help the poor. Where is their com­pas­sion for their own peo­ple? Some time ago when Sexwale was asked on TV what he, who is su­per rich, had done for the poor, he said his wife had do­nated some wheel­chairs. But what are he, Ramaphosa and all the other su­per rich fel­lows do­ing?

The Au­di­tor Gen­eral’s re­port is shock­ing to say the least. Please could Pravin Gord­han apol­o­gise to tax­pay­ers for wast­ing our hard-earned money.

Please could Frans­man com­ment on the re­cent protests in Bekkers­dal and yes­ter­day’s protests in Uiten­hage, both ANC mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and prov­inces.

The state to pay Madon­sela’s le­gal costs. What c**p – it’s the tax­pay­ers that are pay­ing. Zuma should pay as his ar­ro­gance has caused this.

So you won’t vote for He­len Zille be­cause she can’t dance. No won­der this coun­try is in such a mess. So may the best dancer win and rule South Africa.

Tony Leon, why did you al­low your­self to be “paid off” to go to Ar­gentina when you should’ve ex­posed the arms deal?

Broad­cast

Why on earth are we sub­jected to sports chan­nels show­ing Amer­i­can foot­ball and bas­ket­ball? No South Africans watch it and no­body gives a damn. Prob­a­bly another cheap pack­age bought by DStv. – Robert.

DStv. Thank you for the full bou­quet this week. Now I know why I don’t sub­scribe to it. – Sally

I must agree with the lady re­gard­ing Ra­dio Al­goa, It’s by far the best mu­sic sta­tion I have heard in this coun­try – Ken­ton

Justin Bieber is do­ing a great job at in­sult­ing coun­tries all along his tour of South Amer­i­can states. How long be­fore this Bieber Brat fi­nally gets the mes­sage that a pretty face and loads of money is not a li­cence to in­sult and ir­ri­tate? Will he re­alise this be­fore some­body also finds him dead in a ho­tel room some day? – Fran­cois, Gor­don’s Bay

Who cares if McBride is ap­pointed head of the Ipid? They are so cor­rupt any­way.

What do you mean Joburg vis­i­tor who has seen Park­wood East. I’m from Down­berg Road, Hanover Park. Coun­cil work­ers clean up to­day and the very next day trash is dumped again, so please teach the com­mu­ni­ties to look af­ter and keep their en­vi­ron­ments clean. What’s so dif­fi­cult about that?

Another ar­ti­cle in the Life sec­tion ad­vis­ing peo­ple how to be sin­gle and happy. Al­ways a photo of a fe­male, never a male. Lots of men are sin­gle. Please let’s hear their point of view.

A Wein­burg for­gets that cash from the sale of the New­lands land would more than pay for al­ter­ations to the Cape Town Sta­dium – maybe even a roof.

Con­grat­u­la­tions and a heart­felt thank you to all those won­der­ful peo­ple who were in­volved in res­cu­ing the dogs from those brain­less id­iots and a spe­cial thank you to ev­ery­one who re­ports an­i­mal abuse, may you be blessed al­ways.
