Fracking in the Karoo (The land owners voice their opinion).

07 September 2012, 15:00

Not really

Unfortunately the original land owners of the Karoo are practically extinct and you probably won't hear from them here or on any social media. The Khoi were fenced of their own land centuries ago and I doubt many of them knew/know about social media.

Hypocrisy

1. Crying about water when living on inherited land that was stolen from original land by your ancestors who denied the original owners water for their cattle.


2.Driving (more than one) fuel inefficient car and complaining about fuel companies like shell.


3. I went to school with the people making the biggest noise about this in Graaff-Reinet and no I can't vouch for them being innocents treating us city kids as second class pupils.


My concerns

For the future of my family who live in Nieu Bethesda whom do not live on stolen farm land and the water they have to give to their horses and pets.

The real reason the Proteas Lost

The last week every cricket supporter is going on about the reason (s) we lost. Political interferences, team selection, etc. As a normal sport lover, I think the following are the reasons we actually lost. Read more...
