So Malema gets caught for speeding and his supporters sing struggle songs? – Mike
Steve Hofmeyr and Julius Malema were racists but are now racers. – JP the real Scotsman
What’s the difference between Steve Hofmeyr and Julius Malema? 46 km/h. – J
What I would like to know is how Malema can afford a car that can go so fast. Taxman, please check this out.
Zuma and Nkandla
Freedom Charter: The Zuma-led ANC has continually ignored, ducked and stuck their heads in pie and gravy, instead of suggesting any sustainable strategies that could actually be implemented. It’s all hot air and blank brainspace on paper, except for Zuma’s own homestead, which is magnificent. No costs spared on his own welfare.
Fire all the ministers involved in Nkandla and Zuma and the director generals and let them take us to the CCMA. – Errol
Does Jacob Zuma never take responsibility for anything? A president? I laugh.
Eish Thulas, you must spin better stories than that to earn your million bucks a year. Seriously, Bru.
Nkandla established basic amenities in a rural area where further infrastructure is now possible. There was no media attention on the Athlone Stadium, which cost taxpayers R500 million for upgraded facilities which have yet to be utilised and no jobs sustained.
Doesn’t the ANC know about fire extinguishers? A swimming pool? Who are they fooling? – MD
Thulas Nxesi, you’ve cast a blanket of shame on your erstwhile colleagues in education and Sadtu. The gravy train's got you hooked, line and sinker. Sies! – Pennejapie
Nkandla was built in contravention of all building and health codes. – Khumaso
Zuma should be president for the next 100 years. Then he might be able to repay what he has received.
A swimming pool won’t make the foam needed to put out fires. – Zandizwe
Dr John Mphaphuli should read the constitution. People have the right to freedom of belief. How can he tell Zuma his views on marriage are wrong? He can marry for any reason.
Thulas Nxesi says Zuma “cannot know about the costs”. How stupid does he think we are?
What is so special that the Zuma’s private home needs protection? We get burgled and face violence every single day.
I don’t care who takes the fall for Nkandla. Just put our money back into the bank.
Watching the cricket I noticed that all the Protea batsmen, except for Morkel, got out playing defensive shots. They either have to grow some balls or start looking for more aggressive players.
My Christmas wish is for Kallis to retire after the India series. – Ebie, Retreat
Proteas give away too many extras compared to the teams they play against.
Kallis is past his sell by date, so please put him out to pasture. Bring in our rising star, Quinton de Kock. – Andrea
FW de Klerk tries to blame apartheid on the Anglo Boer War. He might fool old Afrikaners who voted for his National Party and apartheid but not the young Afrikaner who prefers democracy. FW de Klerk was a clever, cunning politician. Nelson Mandela was a Statesman. Viva Madiba.
People are not really celebrating Madiba’s life but the myth. – Mike
Rest in Peace Tata. – ELM
So the HPCSA has convicted Wouter Basson of unethical conduct after 20 years. He was clearly just following orders like the so-called doctors who declared Shabir Schaik and Selebi terminally ill. Are they also going to be charged ? What do you think? – Ivan
Wouter Basson has not been found guilty in a court of law. The ethics committee had to import people to support their views. A real witch hunt. – Johan George
Regarding Mike Charles’s letter in Cape Points Dec 19. I can vouch for every point made, having visited Israel 12 times in the past 15 years. The lies and misconceptions Naushad Omar and his ilk are spreading about that remarkable country are sickening.
Over nine million people starving in Syria but very little comments or condemnation from the Muslim community. – AE
