Sorry, Gigaba, you are not presidential material
Gigaba, like others in the ANC, blames politics and people being after them when corruption claims are levelled against them. Gigaba is guilty; his facial expressions tell a story. He is a man of loose ethical standards and must go. He is not president material as he claims.
Parliament is a disgrace… sies. Now I know why ordinary people are so arrogant and rude. What example are Members of Parliament setting? Zero, I’d say. It’s disheartening to watch what’s taking place in Parliament. Race being picked on, swearing, fighting, no respect… South Africa is no rainbow nation… it’s only a dream.
Glenashley and parts of La Lucia blitzed again with bomb fireworks. What hope is there for South Africa when the police hide away when people break the law in plain sight? I have lost all respect for them. They have failed to do their duty. |
The exploding big bang fireworks must cause people to reflect whether it is necessary to continue these religious celebrations. Fireworks are an invention of man; no argument can ever be made that God intended it to be part of celebration. No animal has ever verbally complained, therefore we cannot say it disturbs animals. I am complaining that this big bang madness every year must end and only sky displays be allowed. | SAM
Thank you, residents of Umbilo. Your Guy Fawkes (Bonfire Night) celebrations were almost non-existent. Possibly due to the storm. Now if big bangs of other celebrations could also be muted, life would be merrier. | Linda
To Durban Metro Police, all city by-laws should be enforced throughout the year, not only in times of festivities… How is it possible to find the resources only during these times and not daily when the city by-laws are being transgressed, traffic offences, urinating in public, loud music, speeding, taxis obstructing traffic flow, taxis stopping in the middle of the road, littering, jaywalking, taxis driving contra flow, taxis cutting in front from non-turning lanes, vehicles reversing on national roads to avoid roadblocks and traffic congestion, vehicles driving without number plates? If I as an ordinary citizen can see these offences daily, why can’t you? I put it to you that you are afraid of the taxis associations and anyone else who breaks the laws.
If Diwali is the festival of lights... Why do fireworks have to be used? Why can’t fairy lights be strung up, tea-light candles lit or maybe a small controlled fire?
Diwali in Hillary was like a war zone of note. The big bangs were so loud they set off my security alarm which I eventually had to leave disarmed. The noise continued till after 10pm. How did police at the police station nearby not hear this and put a stop to it? Before anyone takes offence, I place on record I never support the use of fireworks, neither do I celebrate Guy Fawkes/ New Year/Xmas and the like. The noise was horrendous and the law enforcers did nothing.
ODDS AND ENDS
I think we should send a complaint to the DA administration in Cape Town for sending all these shivering cold fronts up to us here in KZN. Lol! | Mike.
Noticed this week that the bakeries have jumped the price of white bread by 50% from R10 to R15 over the past few months. This is going to put a big burden on pensioners and poorer families.
What on earth... purifying sewage water for human consumption? Can one 100% purify sewage water? I don’t think so. Our government is lazy or they ate taxpayers’ money to build catchment centres alongside the coastline, before it flows into the ocean. Why are you talking about desalination – a costly affair? Catch the water before it goes into the ocean, then purify it and then pump it back into people’s homes. Using sewage water is disgusting and causes sickness. Please, government, wake up.
