About Me:

Semi-retired, ex-construction man

With regards to the death of Jackie Selebi and the continued incarceration of Clive Derby-Lewis I would like to make a couple of points, and I’m no lawyer - just a bystander.

I see a tendency – just love that word – developing lately of the regime – another old favourite – to spread far and wide as much confusion as possible, all involving spending my money, of course.

I wrote this article after considering responses to an article on News24 yesterday, also the “attack” on the Bedford Gardens shopping mall, when I found myself pondering the differences between civil disturbance and civil war, and naturally the implications of both.

I am constantly surprised by many things in SA - even though I no longer should be - and the garbage spouted by ANC/Government MP’s and their spokesmen figures prominently here.

I guess that others have had the same thought upon reading headlines in this country, but I thought to throw it out there for people to respond to.

I wonder if the ANC, and the SA government for that matter, really know – comprehend and understand that is – how much R6.5bn is in real money terms, as in the case off the latest SAA bailout.

The fact that Eskom can’t make a profit because historically they’ve been forced to supply at an uneconomic price seems immaterial to all in government just as long as people aren’t burning things down, or rioting, because they have no service.

Right, its official. JZ did steal from us to build his kraal, according to the Con Court.

The EFF may be completely over the top in their methods, as with the recent debacle in parliament, and they may be out on a limb with their politics – return of land, nationalization etc – but they are doing something quite correctly.

There is no hope for a country wherein: The President lies, defeats the e

The DA seems to be doing a fine job of governing the Western Cape and it is fairly obvious that they have neither the power base nor the capacity to govern any other province, let alone the country.
