Dear News24 Reader

14 October 2012, 14:42
I think we ought to give credit where its due.
Last year at the University Of Johannesburg a woman died in a stampede helping her son to apply for this academic year.

Articles were written on News24 we readers complainedWHY IS THE GOVERNMENT NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

This week Monday Blade said TWO Universities will be built by 2014( I stand to be corrected on the year). 

But the comments were negative. I mean Universities will be BUILT!! 
Isn't that what we wanted "IMPROVED EDUCATION" 

Now Blade is saying a New system (CAS) of preventing stampedes is going to be introduced in Schools.

But some News24 readers are complaining... 

As a student I think its a brilliant Idea and those funds will be used for a good cause not for Nkandla. 

What is sad is that its OLD PEOPLE who comment irrationally here.Your Hate for ANC must not blind your judgement.

Next Blade or Angie Motshekga will come up with another good-Idea and u will dis it and say its STUPID.

GROW-UP people.You guys depress and scare me.... your hate for the ANC is one thing that will keep it in power.

Always calling us incompetent, Idiots that that are incapable of doing something good.Even here in varsity (UCT) sometimes we get lectured on Public Spheres and New24 is one of them.
ALL STUDENTS AGREE, MOST New24 comments are irrational.
This country wont go anywhere if we attack instead of having  rational debatse that will bare fruits for South African good governance.
Once you say "Idiot" in a debate; you rocked bottom it. Nothing good will come out of it.
I vote ANC, yes I have said it.And its not because I am uneducated, as a matter of fact I am a Political Science and a Media students. I am well aware of the problems in my country.
But I can not and I refuse side with people who call me incompetent, idiot, stupid even if I deserve credit.

OUTA on EToll Debr

I really believe Outa is "smoking something" - they are now calling EToll laws unjust and irrational, a far cry from their initial stance of lack of public involvement. Read more...

I think Malema's statement that people are more willing to take out medical aid for their pets than for their employees is grossly exaggerated.  Read more...
