Two sides to a story

20 April 2017, 12:45
What a wonderful thing to observe: Democracy at work in Pretoria. The people exercising their constitutional right to gather and protest. The cornerstone of our history, with MANY examples of marches and protestations in the past.

However, the information that hits the news articles, differs slightly. Why?

De Beer from SAPS says 30 000 people marched in PTA, and others say 120 000 people!!

I think any thinking citizen will realize, the disparity is deliberate. Looks like 120 000 to me on the video's and video articles, and taking into consideration the ease with which the powers that be lie, and lie, and lie again, I reject the claim of 30 000. Can you blame me?

Finance minister fired because he and his team were PLOTTING TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT!! Surely that is treason? He should be in gaol, facing serious charges!! and now, attention is off the false security report... Too much noise hitting us on a daily basis....

We are constantly under attack from the ANC spin doctors, who are trying to sell us the Eiffel Tower....

Are we in the market? are we buying?

Third force behind The President'...

Politics is a knife that cuts into the Public every which way it can. Politics is the sociopath, the Public its willing victim. The Public needs to demand better instead of praising sensationalism, gossip and bias over logic and truth. Read more...

Up until recently it was a service that Capetonians were proud of, a service bragged about as an example of what could be achieved as a solution for the masses. But that all changed. Read more...
