    VIVA ANC!!! VIVA!!!

      Yolanda - 2012-02-24 15:24

      why do we blame ANC for EVERYTHING??

      marandamd - 2012-02-24 15:34

      why should we not blame it?

      Yolanda - 2012-02-24 15:38

      @Marandamd, so if i take a gun and shoot someone, the ANC will be at fault??? Sorry, it just doesn't make sense. I guess people forget about Free will!

      Makatikamusona - 2012-02-24 15:39

      @Yolanda that very good question unless Morne Oosthuizen is one of those whites that implants ideas in their children's head as implied on this link

      Taetjo - 2012-02-24 15:48

      Because the ANC messes up so much Yolanda. Can't you see? I'm not blaming them for this incident but look around.

      Alex - 2012-02-24 16:28

      The ANC is our government and they are responsible for what happens in this country and to it's people. And because they are not concerned with their people at the moment but rather a playground fight with it's youth league.

      Simnikiwe - 2012-02-24 17:20

      No let's blame Apartheid, if there was no Apartheid there would be no ANC in the 1st place.

      trix.duvenage - 2012-02-24 18:00

      @ Simnikiwe: If the shooter was white, it must have been Micael Jackson reincarnated. Or somebody like him.

    Thanks for this...ummm...'preview' for news to come. Kind of like "tonight, on E..."

  • Andrew - 2012-02-24 15:24

    I wonder who did this? Any guesses?

      Hugo - 2012-02-24 15:33

      Striking workers comes top,followed by taxi operators

      JJ - 2012-02-24 16:00

      Hahaha...thank you Sargon, i found that humorous. I want to say, that i only find it that way because it highlights the ridiculousness of crime right now.

      trix.duvenage - 2012-02-24 18:08

      Blame it on JULI-ARSE. He is quilty even before he opens his mouth. Ask Zuma. But then this case will be one of the 'unsolved' cases as the police are too lazy to investigate and anyhow, the bus will be ensured so 'nobody' will lose a cent. The driver got a bit of a fright but what the hell he was ten to one on the wrong road and ten to one on the wrong side of the road and twenty to one properly pissed [stoned] as well....

      Vasa - 2012-02-24 18:38

      To Alex. Being in gvt doesnt mean all of a sudden you become Big Brother to your citizens. For instance a lot of News 24 readers are racists. How can the gvt or ANC change that?

  • marcus.daily3 - 2012-02-24 15:27

    No Man!!! WTF!!!!

  • Pieter Janse van Rensburg - 2012-02-24 15:28

  • michael.mullany - 2012-02-24 15:33

    "Fortunately only the driver was on the bus" - so, business as usual.

  • elphaas.mgiba - 2012-02-24 15:33

    IS the gautrain still safe?

  • Xoli - 2012-02-24 15:34

    JHB is like a cowboy movie, lights camera and action...

  • Larry - 2012-02-24 15:35

    Thats what happens when the Unions are stronger than the Government. Lets see who is borught to book over this and who wins out in the end. Guaranteed it wont be the government, who will cave in again.

      Johana - 2012-02-24 16:29

      Unions ARE the government.

  • Carol - 2012-02-24 15:37

    As soon as something gets built, something works, something is NICE, someone has to come along and f*ck it up.

  • Shirley - 2012-02-24 15:41

    Proof this country is in SERIOUS trouble and government in denial! One of these days the only "tourists" we will have are mercaneries. Im sure News 24 could of waited till there was actual news?

  • elsabe.wessels1 - 2012-02-24 15:45

    When is the violence going to stop?? Are we not considering the innocent that is part of our population? People are just hurt for no reason at all. Thankful that the driver was not hurt.

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-02-24 16:20

      broken heart hurt?

  • Andre - 2012-02-24 15:46

    Something I don’t understand, all the comments and only some people are true and real, so many are under the radar, if u want to put comments on, let the people know how u are!!!!!!!!!!!!

      jowza1 - 2012-02-24 15:54

      A lot of them willrisk exposing themselves for the racist bigots they are

      Kroese - 2012-02-25 14:50

      This is me Kroese commenting. I even put up my photo - i am not afraid.

  • Sariena - 2012-02-24 15:49

    Yolamda you are so stupid.Born like that mmmmm?There is no law in this country.That is why we blame the ANC....

  • Kagiso Tlhakung - 2012-02-24 15:54

    u are more racist coz u think u are superior Shirley u wil see its whites who did this

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-02-24 16:22

      kagiso juan mata is white you know

      yvonnecraig.linton - 2012-02-24 16:59

      Kagiso nobody ,not anyone , could be so stupid as to think a white would shoot-up a bus that only has one person in it, but then i suppose a Chelsea supporter would .

      trix.duvenage - 2012-02-24 18:14

      KAGISO: If you are white then yes, a white shot at the bus. But then IF it was a white, why was the driver not hit? Why would a white shoot at an EMPTY bus??

  • Abram - 2012-02-24 15:55

    it can only be the responsebility of abomageza

  • Sariena - 2012-02-24 15:55

    Kagiso,go and look for your missing braincells in your toilet.You lost them there,I am sure////

  • elemental777 - 2012-02-24 15:59

    I have just received an e-mail from my brother to ask me WTF is going on in this country at the moment.He was going to book a holiday for himself and his new Australian in-laws for a week to show them some of the sights before going on to Europe. My advice was to rather visit Botswana parks if they wanted to see some wildlife where they would be able to enjoy the experience in safety which i could not promise here. I know it matters little to our rainbow nation if these tourists go elsewhere at the moment but i promise you it will begin to matter very soon.

      elemental777 - 2012-02-24 16:40

      Probably not beannie, what or who do you think we need?

      Zipho Ka Nomafu Myaluza - 2012-02-24 16:52

      no australians for me please!!!!

  • denise.wilshire - 2012-02-24 16:12

    As the ruling party, the ANC should be blamed. The government of the day sets the tone for the rest of the citizens. If it does not send clear messages to the people, it is seen to be condoning whatever the current status quo is. Think about it people!

  • Tshepo - 2012-02-24 16:14


  • Zukiswa - 2012-02-24 16:18

    Why so much anger and hatred?

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-02-24 16:22

      This is Africa... Culture clash

  • Elsbeth - 2012-02-24 17:13

    I am starting to get the idea that the Government loves violence

      trix.duvenage - 2012-02-24 18:43

      You're joking..... Our president said he WANTED to kill whites when he was a member of the YL. THAT does not mean he DID it!!!! How can we accuse the government of loving violence since they basically INSTRUCTED the police to shoot to KILL!!! and before, THEY have taken the death penalty away to make sure that violence is not met WITH violence!!! No my dear....we have a government that loves peace.....

      Kroese - 2012-02-25 14:56

      No, you are wrong, Elsbeth. The government is now for us blacks and we do not like violence. That is for white people. We like drums much better, make much better noise than violence.

  • Nkulekweni - 2012-02-26 15:12
