Why does the gov­ern­ment not trim the bloated work­force and bloated salaries at SOEs?


Mr Malema, please come clean. The public can all see that you are against Pravin be­cause he is busy root­ing out cor­rup­tion.

It al­ways feels like Eskom is not telling the whole story about load shed­ding. The public are given very lit­tle no­tice when load shed­ding be­gins.


If Zuma is well enough to skip the coun­try to go to Cuba, he is well enough to be in court. Again, is the tax­payer foot­ing the bill, and how is he al­lowed to do this? Is he not a flight risk?


Proteas, bring Smith, Boucher, and Kal­lis to play and not coach, be­cause this cur­rent team can’t play at all.


All you Trump naysay­ers just wish we had a pres­i­dent with his back­bone and lead­er­ship qual­i­ties. So just cry in your soup.

Ac­cord­ing to ANC chair­per­son Gwede Man­tashe, SAA serves only the “elite”. Two quick ques­tions, Mr Man­tashe: are you part of that elite and who pays for your air fares?


The ANC can­not keep their hands off the SOEs. What does Ramaphosa not un­der­stand? Busi­ness res­cue does not en­ti­tle him or any other ANC per­son to get in­volved.

Big red

Sim­phiwe, based on your premise, Nel­son Man­dela (bless the man) should have re­turned his No­bel Peace Prize as he sup­ported the ANC’s stance on vi­o­lence against this very regime, as you call it. You re­ally need to get a life. Your con­tin­u­ous di­a­tribe has one in­tent – to sow dis­cord.

Sim­phiwe, in all fair­ness, is there any­thing won­der­ful that this lame duck gov­ern­ment has done to war­rant praise? Me­thinks not.


The gov­ern­ment should give tax re­bates to all cit­i­zens who in­stall JoJo rain har­vest­ing tanks. Maybe hav­ing a JoJo or sim­i­lar rain har­vest­ing tank should be made law in this wa­ter-starved coun­try?

Nicky Oelofse

One thing the gov­ern­ment and the trade unions must re­alise is that busi­nesses are run for profit and not for char­ity. Bankrupt SOEs are the re­sult of the lat­ter op­tion. No over­seas com­pa­nies will in­vest for al­tru­is­tic mo­tives.
