Pol­i­tics

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma feels noth­ing for SA as he puts the ANC be­fore his coun­try.

Ja­cob Zuma has no re­spect for the peo­ple of South Africa. He laughs at the prob­lems we have. He is a weak pres­i­dent who puts the ANC first and fore­most.

Zuma says he can’t stop laugh­ing in Par­lia­ment at se­ri­ous ques­tions and all the way to the bank at the ex­pense of the tax­payer. Does he take noth­ing se­ri­ously? His term of of­fice can’t end soon enough.

Min­is­ter Malusi Gi­gaba wants to cre­ate a Home Af­fairs that South Africans had never imag­ined. We also never imag­ined that he would try to de­stroy our tourism in­dus­try with his visa reg­u­la­tions. – SR van Wyk, Oran­jezicht

No one will se­ri­ously look at the AU be­cause Mu­gabe was voted chair­man.

Most cit­i­zens who vote for the same pub­lic ser­vants are liv­ing in a fools’ par­adise. Can’t you see how the sys­tem abuses you? None so blind as those who do not want to see.

Tony Ehren­re­ich, what you do with your salary is your con­cern, not ours. A fool and his money are soon parted.

Sport

I’m amazed at the dif­fer­ence in the me­dia cov­er­age of the deaths of two of the world’s rugby greats. John Gains­ford hardly got a men­tion, even in Cape Town where he was a hero. Jonah Lomu, who is not even South African, was treated as if he was royalty. How good could Lomu have been? He couldn’t even score against the Boks.

A re­ally bad as­pect of pro­fes­sional sport is that play­ers and coaches just go where the most money is. No loy­alty, no hon­our, no in­tegrity. Go, Ed­die Jones.

Crime

Bel­lville is a law­less, dan­ger­ous place and po­lice don’t care.

We don’t know what to do about po­lice in Bel­lville any­more or the se­cu­rity of Park­sig Vil­las in Con­radie Street. Why must res­i­dents put up with gang­ster­ism when most lo­cals are un­able to de­fend them­selves?

Maybe I shouldn’t have done a de­gree in so­ci­ol­ogy, be­cause the ap­par­ent neg­a­tive so­cial phe­nom­ena in Bel­lville are sick­en­ing. – Wil­liam Botha

Vladimir Putin is a hyp­ocrite. With pos­si­ble knowl­edge of who shot down MH17 over Rus­sia he did lit­tle to as­sist in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of that tragedy. But when a plane car­ry­ing Rus­sian tourists is de­stroyed by a bomb he vows to track down the cul­prits and he or­ders bomb­ing raids on Syria. What goes around comes around. – Charles Brown, Sea Point

Well done, Nkosi­nathi. You are an in­spi­ra­tion to me and many oth­ers. We need more peo­ple like you to show the will of achiev­ing your dreams. I salute you, young man. – Nick, Plum­stead
