  • Ntebo More - 2011-05-20 09:40

    Just repent people, ANC now and forever ,once and for all :-)

      Keep throwing the bones... why should anyone have to repent for NOT voting for a communist party that fails its people, lets good cities become warzones and also claims to be Jesus when its policies are 100% anti-Christian? I hope you realise this. If you go to church, YOU should repent for supporting a party that supports the mass murder of unborn babies. (btw I don't vote DA either for similar reasons, before you wonder)

      @ Sho - Er... ??!!

      Matt - 2011-05-20 10:15

      @ Sho - if you meant me, I voted ACDP who btw has a black leader. Which I wouldn't have done if I were a racist piece of sh1t.

      Matt - 2011-05-20 10:40

      Ah, Sho's comment was deleted so now mine doesn't make sense :-) thanks to whoever reported it, let's keep it clean!

    You get what you voted for.

      Matt - 2011-05-20 09:53

      But those who didn't vote for them get what other people voted for :-(

  • Kpt_Keyboard - 2011-05-20 09:57

    Shame... poor northern cape!!!

  • Ben - 2011-05-20 09:58

    Just a question... The ANC said that they have done a lot (debateble), but that they need your votes, because a lot still needed to be done (like, service delivery, apparantly). You have felt in the trap, despite them failing you in every respect, from poor service delivery, corrupt official, etc, etc. My question thus is: Come 2014 and 2017, when AGAIN they have failed you, will you then ask them about thair failed promises, or are you again going to vote blindly for them? They have a nice saying in Afrikaans. You voted them in to power again, despite them not delivering, so now "kry vir julle!!!". Don't cry and complain when your water is not running, or the power is out, or the holes in the road in front of your house reaches gigantic proportions. Think then back to 2011, when you made your X for the ANC, in exchange for a t-shirt, a chicken wing and an empty promise....

    Dit is hulle strategie...moor uit, skep frees, jaag die boere uit dan is hulle die meerderheid. Ek sien dit so: Van die 677 483 stemme in die ANC is 10% tax betalers en die res parasiete... Van die 237 315 DA stemme is bykans 90% tax betalers en die res parasiete. So die "sterkste" stem bly steeds by die DA. Ongelukkig vreet "sprinkane" als op wat mens kan bou.

  • freddie van eyk - 2011-05-20 10:02

    Moet net nie in opstand kom as julle in armoede vergaan nie.

  • Point Blank - 2011-05-20 10:05

    Let me guess, the ANC promised better services? Again. And again.. And let me guess you believed them. Again. And again...

    This is such a sad day for SA for how long have the ANC promised something and not...even half has been done after 17 wasteful years we are so behind in the world even Kenya are better developed in technology, ANC doesn't care about anyone they only care about how much money they can take and spend on cars and huge mansions and about their own security....... You guys made your bed enjoy your bread and sewer water this place we call home and all its ppl will never learn.

      gembleton1 - 2011-05-20 10:35

      I was in this area just over a week ago and the ANC was promising the world, there is nothing here most of the towns don’t even have water and if they do it is so dirty you can’t drink it, however the people were begging money from us saying that the ANC douse not care about them, go figger but they still voted for the ANC (when will they ever learn)

      Matt - 2011-05-20 10:42

      True. SA's technology stinks. We can still buy analog TVs when they were phased out years ago in other countries. Internet is still slow, capped and darn expensive - in Holland you get 20mbps uncapped, unshaped for R90 a month.

      It's a shame that your framework of reference for service delivery etc. is so low that you do not know the potential of this country!!Raise your expectations Bluemas, maybe then you will realise the HUGE problems and lack of all systems functioning efficiently!!

  • Yellow1 - 2011-05-20 11:17

    You've said it all Singo. Voting DA means you're smart and voting ANC means you're poor and an idiot, basically that translates to who is the real idiot. You can't judge a persons IQ and life by who he votes for unless you're an idiot. They said the country will be surprised and I haven't seen any surprises or are they still going to come? Vivs ANC Viva, sizohlale sinje, sivikela abantu bakithi.

  • sheep - 2011-05-20 11:32

    thank you Northern Cape. educated vote indeed. Amandla, we now need to liberate the people of western cape not be fooled by monkey dances in the form of hell in Zille

      Boerseun - 2011-05-20 11:37

      You wish. Those who pay the taxes in the Northern Cape should visit www.thinkfreesa website and find out how to remove their taxes from the hands of the ANC and those who support them. It can be done and should be done.

      Brian Harker - 2011-05-20 12:32

      nice name youve got there SHEEP. gaan vreet jou grassies, dit wat die ANC nog vir jou uithou. Soon, you'll have nothing left. In the meantime, the Western Cape Is flourishing and thanks to its smart people, will continue to prosper under competent, intelligent leadership. Please do us a favour when your ANC government can't provide you with the very basics: stay where you are. Do not set foot in the Western Cape. Let us enjoy the fruits of our labour!

  • Boerseun - 2011-05-20 11:38

    The masses will just suffer some more and between the ANC and the desert, well, they deserve it.

  • cjb1685 - 2011-05-20 11:52

    All i have to say is when another damn bobbejaan is going to toy toy over bad living condition and services,they should get shot.If you vote for the cause of the problem,then you are an idiot.....

  • Janine - 2011-05-20 12:03

    21 479 spoilt votes? WTF!

  • World Traveler - 2011-05-20 12:32

    @Singo ... Is the anc a multi-racial party?? If you say "yes", then your statement is nonsense as the "fools" are people in the anc (all races!!) If you say "no" then the anc is a racist party!

      Singo - 2011-05-20 18:36

      World Traveler,the reality is that the DA will not win elections without the majority of black people's votes because of those names. I have been reading the comments in news24 blogs lately and most of the comments were referring to black people as fools, stupid and uneducated; and if one black person is arrested for murder they tend to generalize saying black people are murderers. This is why black people don't want to vote DA. What will be the use of most black people voting a party whose supporters call them names like that? They will believe that if DA gain control of their wards, apartheid will be repeated depending on how you define them. Lastly, try to capitalize the acronym ANC as much as I did with DA.

  • Karooseun - 2011-05-21 03:31

    Sheep..??wrong name black boy,sheep have brains,and you do not have any,now that makes a big difference
