PHOENIX FATHER WHO STRANGLED SON, 7, JAILED FOR 25 YEARS:
Melanie Innes: Not long enough. When it comes to child abuse, murder and sexual abuse the perpetrators should be jailed for life – meaning 60 years or more or until they die. Our justice system sucks.
Nashil Kandailal: 25? Is that the best the system can do?
Fiona Naidoo: Why are kids being abused like this? So many of our innocent children die at the hands of people who were supposed to protect and keep them safe.
BABY X LOOKED LIKE AN ‘ANGEL’:
Sandhya Ramlugan Dawood: My heart breaks every time I read about this baby.
Michelle Van Wyk: We all know who this baby is. May her soul RIP.
DIWALI BANGS, STIFF FINES:
Banu Rita Singh: There’s so much of issues with fireworks when it’s Diwali. FYI, it’s Guy Fawkes on November 5 but no one mentions that. Also, people talk about animal cruelty and traumatised animals but do they realise the trauma that poor sheep, lambs, cows, chicken or fish went through to die for you to eat. My conscience is clear as I have become a vegetarian. Before you start making fireworks or Diwali an issue, ask yourself; what is the actual issue?
Ishmael Dewan: I grew up in Victoria Street and we popped fireworks shoulder to shoulder with our Banya neighbours every year, like we’ve been doing for the past 100 years. I say we fight the system together. After all, it’s only a once-ayear thing.
Marlene Retief: Good news. Please make sure they (the by-laws) are implemented.
VERULAM ‘RAPE’ CAT EUTHANISED; HAD A RARE SKIN DISEASE:
Charmaine Pillay: They told the whole world it was an Indian man. That is not right because nobody mentions race when it is from another group. It’s not right to tarnish a reputation. The lady who made this allegation should herself be arrested for destroying this man’s life.
Shantal Mahabir: Omg. This poor man was defamed and shamed because of someone else’s stupidity.
Preshni Padayachee Bangar: Thank God it’s false news. I couldn’t sleep after reading about this.
●Yejna Gangadin: Given the SPCA report, the owner should be held accountable for animal negligence! Poor kitty.
Aldrin Samuel: This is the problem with social media. It’s all propaganda and must stop.
GRAN BUYS R40 LOTTO TICKET AND WINS R57 MILLION:
Michelle Van Wyk: Nice . . . enjoy gran.
Zaaheda Khan: Wow, congrats.
Reshad Shaik Essop: Just a scam. The granny is probably related to them.
KIDESH RAMJETTAN ACCUSED PLEADS GUILTY:
Kenneth Frank: The killer needs to give up the name of the person who ordered the hit. The killer wants mercy from the courts, then give a name and then possibly escape a life sentence.
Neeta Somers: There must be no mercy for that cold blooded hit man.
DURBAN’S TRENDY INSTAGRAM COP FINDS HERSELF IN HOT WATER OVER HER TATTOO:
Shay Gounden: I don’t understand what a tattoo has to do with catching criminals, murders and rapists and corrupted people. These are adults. And if the police department had a dress code, surely when they apply for the job it’s in their contract rules and regulations.
Pranav Dawlat: Oh damn, if it wasn’t for that tattoo this country would be so much safer.
Kevin Singh: I doubt that a tattoo should be an issue because if you look at some of these police members who don’t have tattoos, they are the ones who get involved in major crimes. Some people put religious signs and some people do it as a fashion statement, but that does not make them a criminal.
Nevashnie Narainsamy: They’re worried about a tattoo when they should be worried about getting more people who can fight for our country.
Vishal Singh: A tattoo identifies the police member who can be marked by the criminals they arrest.
