SABC

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - LIFE -

It is ob­vi­ous: work as a pro­pa­ganda ma­chine for the ANC un­til af­ter the elec­tion. Re­ward SABC boss with a mul­ti­mil­lion-rand hand­shake. Pre­dictable lot. – Juan Pi­eterse

Strangely, the ar­gu­ment is that the SABC is with­hold­ing vi­o­lence from our screens – well, hello dou­ble stan­dards – be­cause ap­par­ently they think it’s okay to show vi­o­lence/ter­ror­ism in hap­pen­ings in France, Zim and else­where, but not okay to show SA vi­o­lence. That is cen­sor­ship as their ar­gu­ment is in­valid. – Wends Smart

Pull their li­cence and take them be off the air com­pletely – I bet within a day Hlaudi will change his tune. – Liz Rudy

If they lose their li­cence then I want a re­fund for my TV li­cence. – Graeme Messina I will pay my TV li­cence af­ter all this drama has set­tled. – Mongezi Mpandla Abra­ham Lin­coln was the 16th and most fa­mous pres­i­dent of the US from 1861 to 1865 and was as­sas­si­nated by John Wilkes Booth while watch­ing a play at the Ford theatre Washington. Lin­coln was mur­dered not for who he was, but what he stood for – the free­dom of peo­ple enslaved and sold into cap­tiv­ity. He per­son­ally pur­sued what was right­eous in the face of tough op­po­si­tion from his peers and gen­er­als and through per­se­ver­ance main­tained the course free­dom for the op­pressed. To­day we are look­ing for such minded peo­ple to lead us to a bet­ter dig­nity of life. So when you vote in Au­gust in the mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions, vote in such a way that your sen­ti­ments will not only be for your­self, but for oth­ers to ben­e­fit from your vote. Can one per­son make dif­fer­ence? Yes, you can. – Gary Mor­ley, Park­lands

The DA wants all pos­si­ble va­cant er­ven built on be­cause that is more (in­come) – they doesn’t care about ob­jec­tions. – Jo­han Ge­orge

Well done, Sol­i­dar­ity. Those in charge, who de­nied pro­mo­tion to prison warders be­cause of their skin colour, must now be charged with racism.

Don Beukes, take a trip along the N2 and see the colour­ful houses built by the DA. Open your eyes. Peo­ple from other ar­eas are flock­ing to Cape and the DA is bat­tling to tend to every­one’s de­mands. Our prov­ince is still the best. – Glo­ria Jones, Hout Bay

There is a gulf of class be­tween Nic Groom, Louis Schreuder, Kobus van Wyk and Jaco Taute on the one side and Aaron Smith, Waasaki Na­holo and Ben Smith on the other. It is the failed acad­emy of WP’s duty to pro­duce play­ers of sim­i­lar ilk and class as the lat­ter trio, how­ever they are more in­ter­ested in pro­vid­ing medi­ocre white play­ers with ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties at the ex­pense of their non-white coun­ter­parts. That is why the Storm­ers' tro­phy chances are year af­ter year fan­ci­ful hog­wash. Why should we keep silent about it? It is al­ready em­bar­rass­ingly ob­vi­ous. I mean more than 20 years and not a sin­gle su­per tro­phy. – An­thony Meyer, Re­treat

An­thony, if the pur­pose of your many let­ters is to get Kobus Van Wyk dropped, then you are failing dis­mally. Rather write to Th­elo Wake­field be­cause af­ter all he is the chief ex­ec­u­tive. If, how­ever your aim is to ir­ri­tate gen­uine Storm­ers fans, then you are suc­ceed­ing bril­liantly. – Ken El­lis, Fish Hoek

Lit­i­gants are warned that un­less they in­sist on re­ceiv­ing the in­ter­est earned on their money sit­ting, of­ten for months, in at­tor­neys’ trust ac­counts, the lawyers pocket it. They make mil­lions a year out of this racket and mil­lions more by charg­ing dou­ble nor­mal re­tail prices for pho­to­copy­ing masses of doc­u­ments for court cases. Does no one pro­tect the pub­lic from avari­cious lawyers whose prime goal is self-en­rich­ment? – Richard Ben­son, Cape Town

How in this en­tire world can peo­ple on game farms still not see on cam­eras that their own staff com­mit these crimes? Is that the rea­son why “these so called game rangers” ap­ply for a po­si­tion in the first place, to de­stroy our pre­cious an­i­mals? Soon there won’t be any left for us to ap­pre­ci­ate.
