Some people believe the DA will reinstate Apartheid should they win the national elections. Anneke Scheepers can't understand why anyone would think this.

Johannesburg - The Constitutional Court has received an "extremely urgent court application" for the appointment of an "investigative task team" to prepare for the end of the world on 21 December, according to a report on Wednesday.
Robert Sefatsa, 38, a Soweto resident, also stated in papers handed in at court that the government needed to form a new department to prepare for judgment day next Friday, Beeld reported.
He suggested that the new state department should be called the "department of paranormal and esoteric sciences".
Sebatsa pointed out that according to the Mayan calendar, judgment day would be on 21 December, and it was therefore a matter of extreme urgency that South Africa and other countries make their preparations for the apocalypse.
A commission of inquiry should include geologists, statisticians, astronomists, economists and extra-terrestrial technologists, and should be competent to cope with evacuation procedures, sea and air logistics, and resettlement, he said.

CONTINUED COMMENT FROM ; MIKI SEMASEKIKI
You talk a lot about corruption, rightly so,
but you are not going to fix this with playing party politics.
There is corruption in EVERY country in the world,
but, sure, no excuse why you should have it, and at this high level.
The curbing of corruption, starts at home.
Lets be honest,
possibly 8 out of 10 readers on this site would rather pay a cop, 20 than receiving a 200 fine!
Many would rather buy fakes' and pay half price for 'branded names,
than the real thing for full price!
You should start a campaign; " SAY NO TO CORRUPTION "
and start from the bottom and than work your way to the top.
It will be far more effective than the other way around !!
And while we are on the subject, let me say,
I admire your opposition leader, a hardworking decent lady,
but she must now do the right thing
and return this R400 000 she received from those Gupta thugs !
Are you a perfect country ?
Off course not, many things wrong, and much to be done.
But , what I started saying, what you have done in a mere twenty years is AMAZING.
And let me tell you a secret; we in Japan also are far from perfect,
but the difference between us and you is,
that we look and attend to our problems quitly,
and don't hang our dirty laundry on our washing line, for all to see.
What we do in our country; is being POSITIVE
and show ,all that is good with our country to the world.
YOU SHOULD DO THE SAME!!
Thank you for your hospitality !!
