Don’t scare farmers, whites away
the politicians who serve as ministers, MECs, HODs, MPs and MPLs do not attend public schools.
Is that a sign that the public school system is not good enough for their families, but fine for the general public?
Clean up the system, get rid of progressed pupils and let them progress based on their own ability to absorb, learn and regurgitate. If they don’t make it, they don’t get pushed through.
Bring back corporal punishment, put power back in the hands of the teacher and institute measures that deal with errant pupils who abuse and assault teachers. CLINT LEVERTON
Durban I, AS A PROUD South African, strongly object to the amendment of Section 25 of the Constitution, because it protects me and gives me the right to own land and have a title deed, like millions of other South Africans.
If South Africa wants a thriving government, with an invitation to investors to invest more and create more jobs here, then rethink and walk away from the amendment of Section 25.
We need our farmers and we need our whites; don’t scare them away.
Apartheid was wrong, but we experienced the Truth and Reconciliation process and we need to work together, unite and take this country forward.
We tend to forget that the whites are responsible for building companies within South Africa, contributing vastly towards our economy. They have created millions of jobs and are still in business with more blacks employed than whites today.
Our government must concentrate more on uniting us South Africans, escalate the RDP housing issue, create more jobs, bring down crime, focus on more international investors and have more citizens educated. KEITH THURLEY
