Pravin Gordhan will do everything in his means and available resources to uplift the economy. Encouraging is his referral to the green shoots evident. Please let’s get rid of the weeds of corruption and eradicate this scourge before these shoots of prosperity for all are stifled beyond redemption.
Enough! Jacob Zuma must be the most accomplished stalling tactician... wonder why? The court must deny his application. – C Roberts
Totally agree with David Leibrecht (Argus, October 27). Parliament is quite okay in Cape Town and has been all the years. Only Jacob Zuma needs to move and I think he needs to take all his corrupt cronies with him to Nkandla. PS Mr Editor – I think you’re about selective what you print , so I’m not putting my name in next time. Eish. – Victoria Ganfort
Jacob Zuma has it all wrong. We mustn’t move Parliament to save money. We need to move him and his lot out. That will save lots of money. – Sandra Spammer I am absolutely incensed by the barbaric behaviour of the so called "protesting students". No stone must be left unturned in apprehending those involved in the destruction at Wellington. – Robert Gillespie
October 8 has come and gone and, big surprise, no local government election in Palestine. Nor will there be. Your foreign correspondent should wake up.
Cheryl Roberts, the reason no one watches women’s sport is because it’s boring. – Amy
Thank you to FNB Plumstead which heeded my request to fix the malfunctioning ATM at Meadowridge Park and mall the first time I reported it. In fact, the entire ATM was replaced with a new one. Other branches can take a lesson in customer care from you. – Ellen Fedele
In its latest advertisement, the Road Traffic Management Corporation admits its monumental failure to stop road carnage. It admits that “South Africa has the sixth highest road traffic death rate in the world”. This is because the RTMC refuses to implement the measures which reduced road deaths overseas by up to 90 percent and its failure to act will now cost thousands of lives on our roads this coming holiday season. The RTMC is South Africa’s biggest, costliest and deadliest white elephant. – Richard Benson, Road Safety Action Campaign
The idea that washing a car from a bucket and not with a hose will save water is a fallacy. You have to wet the car before washing. With a hose this uses about half a bucket of water but you would need two buckets. You then put your cleaner/wax solution in a bucket of water, wash the car with a sponge or cloth, and rinse down with a hose – again using about half a bucket if you have a spray nozzle, instead of two or three with the bucket. Now, is that washing with a hose? I’ve just saved three-four buckets of water by rinsing the car with the hose. Am I going to be prosecuted for this way of cleaning the car? – Lutz Feldmann
