Khume Ra­mulifho, the DA shadow MEC for ed­u­ca­tion, has no idea what he is talk­ing about when he says Le­sufi is not guilty for the loss of R800 mil­lion from the Gaut­eng ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment. As the head of the depart­ment, it is his job to make sure this does not hap­pen. AfriFo­rum as busi­ness­men know this. Fire Le­sufi, and charge him.

Big red

Only a to­tal tax re­volt and the death penalty can save us from a cor­rupt and ar­ro­gant ANC. Tax­pay­ers need to stand up and say: “We are sick of be­ing abused”.


The only way that this coun­try is go­ing to sur­vive is for all the SOEs to be pri­va­tised. There is too much money be­ing stolen through cor­rupt trans­ac­tions and un­law­ful ex­pen­di­ture. You only have to drive around Tsh­wane and see all the Range Rovers driven by overnight bil­lion­aires.


Watch­ing footage of Boris John­son at­tempt­ing to shear sheep while on the cam­paign trail in Wales has con­vinced me that he cuts his own hair!

I don’t un­der­stand why we don’t have in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cers or Saps of­fi­cers at the malls af­ter so many years ex­pe­ri­enc­ing rob­beries dur­ing this time of year. In a nor­mal coun­try we would have seen lead­ers re­sign­ing or be­ing fired be­cause of an in­abil­ity to do their jobs.


Not a sin­gle protest up­ris­ing in 20 years has been about the lack of trans­for­ma­tion or party unity or in­equal­i­ties. Yet that is all the ANC has been us­ing in pol­i­tics for all these years to stay in power, for no ben­e­fit to the coun­try’s ci­ti­zens. And Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa is no dif­fer­ent.


A democ­racy? A civilised coun­try is what we need more than any­thing as we watch the hor­rors of the abuse of women and chil­dren in the land. Men, you should all be ashamed of your­selves.


Bren­dan Seery, thanks for your hi­lar­i­ous Mon­day col­umn once again. I am sure that our pres­i­dent would love to hear that the flight­less bird and its par­a­sites have be­come ex­tinct. Hope­fully next Mon­day you will have an “ace” up your sleeve con­cern­ing dairies and stat­ues.


Trans­for­ma­tion in the pub­lic sec­tor has been dis­as­trous be­cause of in­com­pe­tence and mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion, but the pres­i­dent says he wants to see more trans­for­ma­tion in the pri­vate sec­tor. The last nail in SA’s cof­fin.
