Are de­vel­op­ments at the SABC in­dica­tive of an emerg­ing dic­ta­tor­ship in SA? – H Kra­nold,Tam­boer­skloof

There is some­thing very se­ri­ously wrong with the COO of the SABC. – Robert Gille­spie, Plum­stead

I have re­viewed my de­ci­sion to re­new my TV li­cence. Sorry, Hlaudi. You lose. – David Pearce

To think that they caused all that worry. In the mean­time there are ac­tu­ally re­ally girls out there who go miss­ing ev­ery day and their cases are be­ing pro­longed be­cause of id­iots like this. Ridicu­lous. – Le­an­dra Jane Valen­tine

A 23-year-old adult and a mi­nor, what a waste of time!!! She should be charged with kid­nap­ping. – Star­rene Stu­art

They should do com­mu­nity ser­vice for a month. They need pun­ish­ment so that they can fully un­der­stand the con­se­quences of their ac­tions. – Mickey Sum­mer

I was part of a group of pen­sion­ers who wit­nessed how a po­lice­woman was strug­gling with pick­pock­ets at Parow Hy­per. And I have ex­pe­ri­enced grave se­cu­rity prob­lems there my­self. From dis­gusted pen­sion­ers who are obliged to go to the cen­tre as it is the pay point for monthly pen­sions; quo vadis ANC and SAP. From Wil­liam and the pen­sion­ers in the north.

I don’t un­der­stand why peo­ple burn buses. If they are not happy with their coun­cil­lors, they must go to the ANC of­fices, please. – Barcelona res­i­dent.

Sod­wana Bay guy, how can you say things like that? What have we black peo­ple in this coun­try done to you? I was so mad yes­ter­day when I saw that on tele­vi­sion. The whole black and white thing will never end. – Shirley Mbema, Gugulethu

The traf­fic de­part­ment needs to do some­thing about the taxis in Good­wood. They are driv­ing up the wrong side of the side streets to avoid the queues, they are us­ing the turn­ing-only lanes to go straight and are com­pletely block­ing the in­ter­sec­tions so no one can get out of the side streets. They are out of con­trol.

South Africa’s pop­u­la­tion will top 56 mil­lion in 2016 but we still have un­der 21 000 traf­fic po­lice to mon­i­tor nearly 12 mil­lion ve­hi­cles and driv­ers lead­ing to 50 or more deaths a day on our roads for which our politi­cians, who fail to act, must be held re­spon­si­ble. Also our mur­der and rob­bery rates are in­creased by the ab­sence of po­lice on our roads. So when will this in­san­ity end? – Richard Ben­son, Road Safety Ac­tion Cam­paign

‘Is this what Fort Calata died for?’ When I read what Lukhanyo said on Tues­day the tears fell. Come Au­gust those in power will see that some of us are tired of this. – Shirley Mbema, Gugulethu
