Municipal election date set

2011-03-03 14:26

Cape Town - The local government elections will take place on May 18, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe announced on Thursday.

Addressing the National Council of Provinces, Motlanthe, who is acting president while President Jacob Zuma is abroad, said the term of municipal councils would end soon.

In terms of the Local Government Municipal Structures Act, "the term of municipal councils is five years, calculated from the day following the date set for the previous election of all municipal councils".

"After consultation with the [Independent] Electoral Commission (IEC), government has set the date for the local government elections as 18 May 2011," he said.

The date would be formally proclaimed by publishing a notice in the Government Gazette within the next week.

It had been decided to announce the date now to give the IEC more certainty and time to prepare for the elections.

Once the election date was gazetted next week, the municipal segment of the voters roll would close.

This meant eligible voters had the last opportunity from Thursday until the proclamation of the election date was published to ensure their names appeared correctly on the voters roll.

"I therefore call upon all South Africans to make full use of the last voter registration weekend of 5-6 March 2011 set by the IEC to ensure that their names appear correctly on the voters roll," Motlanthe said.

      DA makes the only sensible choice , not perfect but what politician is...its all about not allowing the ANC have more then two third majority.. GO DA

      jeremy - 2011-03-03 15:02

      The DA will definitely increase its majority in the Western Cape - and may even take Tshwane. But I'd suggest you all read Khaya Dlanga's article from yesterday as to why the ANC won't lose massively. Unfortunately it has masses of unthinking supporters like Poloyatonki who firmly believe the DA will bring back apartheid. The only way around this perception is better education for all - and for more black faces among the DA leadership

      HAD - 2011-03-03 15:03

      @Poloyatonki: These elections has to do with local government. Go check out DA managed municipalities and compare that with others. There's no apartheid, only competence, irrespective of colour.

      Winzist - 2011-03-03 15:07

      @Poloyatonki I like your name sana. if only they know the meaning of it. Lol

      Mnumzane - 2011-03-03 15:08

      ANC is still the best

      modefan - 2011-03-03 15:15

      I've got clean water and electricity and a clean town, so I'll have to go with the party who kept it that way, DA of course

      schmerz - 2011-03-03 15:16

      @Poloyatonki You are insane. End of story That proves the nefarious intent of the ANC, injecting innocent people with terrible lies. If you think ANC is more competent than DA, good luck with being successfull with ANYTHING in life

      Mnumzane - 2011-03-03 15:16

      @HAD the DA can manipulate financial reports and the Auditor always fail to notice. If you go to their municipalities only their friends get tenders and they also practice nepotism. Politicians are just the same

      schmerz - 2011-03-03 15:19

      @Mnumzane The ANC is stealing YOUR money, and you approve? Wait let me grind up some penis and ballsack to make you a cure

      LoveMsg - 2011-03-03 15:26

      As black person living in Soweto, people are fed up with the ANC and some people don't really want admit that....even if the ANC wins but the DA will crack that ANC boat, and the crack will eventually get bigger and wider...i know me and my black friends we are voting DA!

      Poloyatonki - 2011-03-03 15:29

      schmerz... when last did Zille visit Khayelitsha or Nyanga.... in 2009. What does that tell you, if a premior can do that...

      Like England, the ANC's had a glorious past, but no future...

      Poloyatonki.. you seem like a real clever dude. Why don't you use some of your brain when commenting on this forum

      Thouca - 2011-03-03 16:27

      hey melly, i have missed u, my little bunny......and i will stand in line with u and hold yr hand, but only if u talk nice to me this time....

      boepensmanvangraan - 2011-03-03 16:42

      @Poloyatonki. When do your leaders visits the townships most? And another fault in your logic: Why will the woman who brought Biko's killers' to justice reinstate the system she stood against. No chief silly logic. What will happen when that beautiful woman would take office is force you to work. HAW NOT THAT COMRADE I WILL FIGHT AND DIE AND BLEED AND SPIT BUT PLEASE PLEASE NOT WORK!

      Dikgoshi - 2011-03-03 18:02

      Don't hold your breath, a majority of SA citizens still vote with their heart and not with their head, and they are the majority; these are the illiterate or semi-literate,thanks to apartheid. Those that would vote with their heads couldn't be bothered with politics and that is where the problem lies. - I know, i was one of those who couldn't be bothered to vote at some stage. But this time again: no liar, cheater and corruptor is getting my vote.... To hell with making boys and girls get richer at my X mark's expense........

      Brewster - 2011-03-03 18:55

      Polyatonki, your lack of insight is beyond comprehension. You have no function on earth. Even your vote will mean nothing

      GreatSA - 2011-03-03 23:09

      @ Dikgoshi – Apartheid ended over 17 years ago – you CANNOT still be blaming apartheid for illiteracy!!! We had kids of ALL races in our school from 1991 – so please tell me that 20 years is not enough time to get an education. STOP blaming apartheid for YOUR laziness. Get off your ass and learn something. Stand up, be a man and put an end to your idle behaviour and stop blaming apartheid, because apartheid doesn’t cause illiteracy – LAZINESS does. If apartheid causes illiteracy, then Madiba, Zuma and the rest would not be able to read or write. Time to WAKE UP and get educated. Apartheid is over and it will NEVER come back even if a whitey won at the elections. There are a lot of whites who disapproved of that era, and they will not allow it to come back. So let’s stand up and move forward as a NATION of wonderful South Africans!

      Jonny - 2011-03-04 09:56

      @GreatSA. Dude, chill. Dikgoshi was making a valid point. From 1976 after the Soweto riots children became the focus of the struggle and often its leaders in the townships. Over 8000 teenagers left SA after June 16th in 1976 alone to go and join MK in other Countries. During the 80s most kids in the townships did go to school either because of intimidation or because of the bs they were being taught by bantu education. It a pity the ANC doesn't recognise the sacrifices those teenagers, who are now uneducated adults, made for us every day of their lives while white people carried on shopping in Sandton/Hyde Park. So don't hate. The ANC has ignored these people, why do you think many MK vets have been linked to cash-in-transit heists? Even Stalin and Lenin educated illiterate adults in the USSR (so they could read Soviet propaganda but that's beside the point, it's more than what the Tsars did). Anyway, 18th of May is my birthday, will be sweet not to go to work. Peace and Love.

      tinymeister - 2011-03-04 13:12

      @Poloyatonki - I'm not going to get into a debate about why the DA is currently the only sensible choice, but I feel obliged to point out that your statement about Helen Zille not visiting townships is wildly inaccurate. The most recent visit to Khayelitsha, which I can recall, was December 2010. In a sense, a democracy isn't truly a democracy, until power has been relinquished by the ruling party in a peaceful manner, at least once, since the inception of that democracy. At the moment we have a constitutional democracy, which is to a degree functioning as intended. The ANC is however a revolutionary party and as such, still needs to prove that it places the constitution above its own existence. In recent years we've seen just how willing the ANC is to bypass the constitution, through Cadre Placement and the like, in an effort to protect its own members from prosecution. Only time will tell how far they are actually willing to go in an effort to protect their party's hold on power. I'm sure we all know what happened to the last Political Party to proclaim a 1000 year rule ;)

      Pink_Polony - 2011-03-04 16:29

      Hey Stinki-tonki, When last did Nomvula Mokonyane visit the people of Garsfontein..? Mmmm NEVER.

  • Alwyn - 2011-03-03 14:29

    The Date is set for the end of the ANC ,the people will not make a mistake again and vote for useless and corrupt officials.They had enough of poor service delivery and helping the fat cats to become fatter

      Justin - 2011-03-03 14:36

      Dear Alwyn, if only this was true, the balance of people who vote ANC are illiterate, poor and ignorant so its easy for the ANC to manipulate them, a food parcel and a T shirt is all it takes to get there vote. so as much as it should change it won't unless the DA also start handing out food parcels and employing the same tactics to harvest votes from the illiterate. If u have nothing a loaf of bread for a vote actually makes sense

      Alwyn - 2011-03-03 14:45

      A very good idea ,,but you would be surprised that the majority of people realised that not one promise made by the ANC has come to something,You can catch a illiterate person as you call them only a few times and then they start to think by themselves ,and with all the protests over service delivery,its happening,,food parcels and T shirts will not be enough this time,the people want jobs not promisses,And off course the Coloured and Indian statements has definitely helped the odds swing away from the ANC

      Thamie_Durba - 2011-03-03 14:48

      @Justin. Your insults are the reason I will continue voting ANC! I do not need a loaf of bread from the government, neither do any of my BLACK associates.

      Jacques - 2011-03-03 15:06

      @Thamie you and very few associates are probably the only that benifited a little from ANC, while the rest of us are loosing our jobs....

      m.reyneke3 - 2011-03-03 15:11

      omg thamie, open your eyes. People are dying of starvation out there. Including some of your black associates, my white associates and people of almost every race.

      Valis - 2011-03-03 15:16

      @Thamie_Durba: Are those your associates in your hijacking/robbery syndicate?

      Thamie_Durba - 2011-03-03 15:20

      @Jacques/m.reyneke3. Alwyn says all blacks who vote ANC are, because of the handouts. I do not receive any handouts. I vote ANC because of the insults and the general hatred shown to me through most of the comments on online media and the way the previously advantage behave towards me. Basically I see them as looking for an opportunity to go back to apartheid. I would rather be more active in my branch of the ANC to root out bad apples.

      schmerz - 2011-03-03 15:28

      @Thamie_Durba You are a classic racist, taking anything and everything on that path. You will not solve anything, you will cause more harm. I think you will have more fun in Zimbabwe, that's a class A example of what you are sowing. ANC brings bad news with them EVERY DAY

      Alwyn - 2011-03-03 15:29

      @Thami Durba-Thinking that Apartheid will come back if a Multi racial pary rules show how stupid you realy are,And youre associates may not vote,because Nigerian Drug dealers are not allowed to vote in this country

      Sue - 2011-03-03 15:58

      Thami- U know what they say about birds of a feather. And anyway its been a long long time now that the ANC have made fools of people, And if they think it's going to get better. They are fooling themselves. And they only have themselves to blame for being so doff.

      Thamie_Durba - 2011-03-03 20:50

      @Alwyn. FYI, I am a South African law abiding citizen. I pay my taxes. I love this country and believe in it. I am a Christian. I would love racial harmony which will lead us discuss real issues rather than racially motivated duscussions. We are not there yet. The comments on this thread alone proves that.

      Felix - 2011-03-03 22:16

      @Thamie_Durba, I am white and an Atheist. I appreciate your open mind and the way you put your point across. Please don't reserve your judgment based on comments on a faceless forum! We all bleed red and there are fuckwads of many colours... Peace

      AJ - 2011-03-04 05:09

      @Thamie_Durba: What a stupid reason to vote for a party you acknowledge yourself is not performing well. You punish yourself at the polls, because you dont approve of what a couple of total strangers (who you assume to be white) say on an internet forum. That's like some black guy treating me badly at work, so I go home and fire my domestic and gardener, only to come back to work for more abuse. Makes no sense and does not deal with the problem. Seriously, worry about yourself, not others..

      Susannomore - 2011-03-04 09:40

      If only this were true. However, the high lack of education in this country (and therefore ability to make an independent opinion), means that the ANC will continue to use any means at their disposal to secure a vote.

      Educated - 2011-03-04 11:03

      Yeah, Thamie. Cut your nose off and teach that face of yours a good lesson, why don't you. Pathetic is all I can say!

      Zanu - 2011-03-04 14:59

      Why on a thursday... f'n stupid... economy already hurting

      tinymeister - 2011-03-04 18:55

      @Thamie_Durba: *sigh* I'm assuming you are an educated man, seeing as you're paying taxes and are able to partake in commenting on news websites. I also accept the fact that neither you, nor your "BLACK" associates, need any hand outs from the Government. Correct? Ok. Then can you please explain to me, in which part of Justin's comment were he referring to You, or any of your "BLACK" associates? Are you denying that the majority of the ANC's support base is poorly educated South Africans, living in poor conditions? No, you're not? Ok. Then please explain to me in which part of Justin's comment were he insulting anybody except the ANC leadership? There's also a subtle difference between insulting somebody and simply stating a fact, which might be negative in content, but is still true. The reason, I'm assuming, You and you’re "BLACK" associates will continue to vote ANC, is simply because you are ignorant and unwilling to accept South Africa as an open and free society. Your prejudice towards white, educated South Africans blinds you to the truth. In your mind we are all secretly still praying for the return of Apartheid. And because you are unwilling, or perhaps incapable of changing this mindset, you read exactly what you want to read in Justin's comment. As I believe you do with other comments and statements made by, dare I say "the oppressors". If you're not willing to work on your personal race issues, then perhaps keep your opinion to yourself in the future.

      Kevin - 2011-03-03 14:57

      unfortunately, i think not, since they require you to prove that you are living in the Municiple district you are voting for, in essence being overseas proves that you are not in that municipality. If you just happen to be away on that day or a short period, you get sidelined. It doesn't make sense for the government to allow South Africans overseas to vote, since it is highly unlikely that any of those votes will support the ruling party, its simply not in their best interests.

      Michael - 2011-03-03 15:01

      No, not possible. For municipal elections you have to vote in the ward that you're registered in, so no absentee voting. Sorry.

      MaNdwandwe - 2011-03-03 15:10

      You should know better than that by now. The DA thinks that happing on and on about the ANC = campaigning. I know they had lost the plot when their pla-cards actually had Zuma's name on them (as in 'stop Zuma'). You just don't do that! Idiiots! Viva ANC!

      Mnumzane - 2011-03-03 15:21

      They are struggling about the message. They are waiting for the ANC to start and they will coming behind blaming the ANC. If you vote for them your vote will become a waste as usual.

      4daluvofSA - 2011-03-03 15:26

      Zamalecq - 2011-03-03 15:18

      @Poloyatinki: Read "The State of Africa" by Martin Meredith and tell me honestly that the ANC is not leading us down the same path as all the other African countries after independence. It's like dominoes. In each and every case (starting with Ghana in 1957) the "leaders" only enrich themselves and their "elite" (AKA their families and cronies). Don't come back to me whinging that the author is white and that it is some conspiracy. The book is factual and if you disagree with any of it you should produce the alternative facts. EDUCATE yourself. Don't be blinded by TRADITION. Liberate yourself from the past and think logically...

      theoldmanofthemountains - 2011-03-03 17:29

      What's your point Tseleng? So you can speak loads of languages (I can only speak 3) - big deal. Fact: children learn languages best, which hardly merits them being considered educated. Have you got a masters in economics? No? What about being a qualified CA? No? Okay, okay, how about an honors degree in finance? No? Well not to worry, you don't need any of those to read the newspapers and on a daily basis find out just how corrupt politicians and the civil servants that they put there to supposedly do the legwork, are stealing (yes, you read that right: STEALING) from us. All of us, you included. But of course if you're going to vote for a political party just because they're run by folks of the same skin colour as you, well then the rest of us are wasting our time. Don't want to vote for the DA? Fine, that's your prerogative. Only don't vote for the ANC either because now that you know that they steal, cheat & lie, your vote for them means that you tacitly agree with their actions and (wait for it....) that makes YOU an accomplice!

There are some other political parties especially for people like ‘yu’, eg the: ANC = Another Narrow-minded Comrade or perhaps consider this party, the: ANC = All Neanderthal Cronies or this one: ANC = Another Needy Criminal or, ANC = Aggressive Non-functional Company or, ANC = Attitude Not Commonsense or ANC = Accommodate Non-white Cadres or, ANC = Accountability Nowhere Close or, ANC = Amalgamated Nutty Crooks or, ANC = A Nymphomaniac Commander or, ANC = Android Native Cohorts or, ANC = Agony Nearing Closer or, ANC = Amusing Nefarious Clowns or, ANC = Attract New Cash or, ANC = Another Nazi Copy or in the WC you could consider, the: ANC = Asseblief N@i Coloureds So you see ...vrot-tonki, don’t stress about the DA, you have lots of other choices...

    COPE still are a force to be reckoned with. We are the alternative to the DA and ANC. Things are just getting worse under the ANC government.

      matla - 2011-03-03 15:01

      yeah right

      Moi1980 - 2011-03-03 15:03

      Unfortunately COPE has turned into a laughing stock. All their good intentions have gone down the drain with their in-fighting

      Zamalecq - 2011-03-03 15:06

      I wish I could say that I agree (I held so much hope for them... a new party with no baggage that could unite all races and I did vote for them during the last elections). Unfortunately the cracks are too severe for me to support them this time and the DA is the only option.

      Currie_Mafia - 2011-03-03 15:07

      COPE are "ANC Light"...

      MaNdwandwe - 2011-03-03 15:12

      @dannel38 - And how are they getting better under COPE? Who is your president this week by the way? Please remind me, I can't keep up!

      Alwyn - 2011-03-03 15:14

      Sorry to say but theres no hope for COPE,DA is the only multiracial party that can govern this country,as proven in the WC

      daboss247365 - 2011-03-03 15:18

      COPE THE JOKE! that useless party with it's toothed potatoe leader was doomed from the start. DA or ANC or stay home, all these useless religious extremist parties & others are a waster. If in Natal, IFP still has a bit of sway. Otherwise the only alternative to ANC monarchy is DA.

      Mnumzane - 2011-03-03 15:24

      Which COPE? Mbhazima or Lekota or Shikota?

      exocist - 2011-03-03 18:12

      There is light at the end of the tunnel, we just need to help educate them... Seeing the ANC poisons them!

      Educate them, Melly30 ?!!! Surprise, surprise, There are a lot of intelligent non white South Africans out there....

      4daluvofSA - 2011-03-03 15:36

      @sceptic hahahahaha....are you going to be there when they put the cross on the ballot paper? C'mon dude, I am sure you are smarter than that. @Melly30, there we go again, "them" and "us" you are concerned about "them" because it is closer to the elections? Good Luck!

      @Melly30..why do you guys keep saying we need to educate them.Them who the blacks?Educating them to vote for DA is good education according to you?Its canvassing time and we all gonna hear lies from EVERYONE.You just have to suck this one in unfortunately

      4daluvofSA - 2011-03-03 16:03

      @Melly, how old are you? i think this forum should have an age restriction now. Sick and tired of these juvenile delinquents!

      Sickly - 2011-03-03 16:12

      @melly30, As a non-racist south african (and I'm white) I find your statement extremely offensive. "...educate them..." You're not talking about pets or children here. This sort of attitude is exactly why people don't won't DA. Don't hold yourself in such high regard, other should hold you in high regard. I despise the ANC and the DA. The ANC as a whole are corrupt and inept. The DA don't actually have a message except be anti-ANC. Wish there was a true party out there that had the best intentions and the ability to implement them.

      AJ - 2011-03-04 05:18

      @Sickly: Why do you say ..'As a non-racist south african (and I'm white)' - you make them sound mutually exclusive terms to which you are an exception! Just say 'As a South African...blah blah etc etc' - that will do just fine..

      Luckily we still have a open, internationally recognised & clear voting system. it would be diffeiult to have any rigging, lets be grateful & use it while it lasts :) Also, get out there & kick some sense into anyone that has not registered to vote :) if they want change, they need to make that bit of effort

  • Slapper - 2011-03-03 15:11

    Please postpone the elections for a year, then we will have an extra year without Road tolls, because as soon as the elections are over, in come the Tolls, Electricity price rises, Fuel Levies, Etc, Etc. Oh! and Poliodonkey you are a moron.

  • Shorts1 - 2011-03-03 15:12

    So we will all soon see as to the extent to which the mass voters around the country show that they are sick & tired of the ANC's total abuse of power, self indulgence and general gross incompetence. If they don't do so this time, they will again end up with the Government that they deserve. Now is the time and opportunity for wholesale change in the way in which South Afica is governed as part of what should hopefully be a peaceful, democratic process.

  • Ross - 2011-03-03 15:16

    DA...DP, same party in the years of apartheid they claimed the NP was too strong to make a difference, now with the ANC tow thirds majority and they also too strong. I would say 50yrs of being the opposition and delivered…yes they delivered. Last election I voted DA and what a disappointment. In the Western Cape they have not delivered as far as I am concern except in the past month by painting the roads. M5 inter-change in still under construction, Integrated Bus system still not implemented (GP, KNZ implemented and let’s compare SA to another country, Beijing implemented it in 3months), Table Mountain becoming even more unsafe, Beaches are not maintained, Violence on the Cape Flats is on the increase and flowing into the former quieter neighbourhoods Drugs is on the increase and it is not just the Cape Flats that is affected Hout Bay residence were fought with Low cost housing is still 5yrs behind The DA has not gone to government with workable solutions, just complains. (It is only a problem if you have a solution) And the DA employed an all-white male cabinet. The only things the DA implemented in the Western Cape is more traffic camera’s, the “Ghost Squad” and more recently painted road signs.

      Melly30 - 2011-03-03 15:22

      Go play in traffic

      Snoopy88 - 2011-03-03 15:59

      - I think Patricia will be a little annoyed with you thinking of her as a man Ross... - Hout Bay residents attacked the police because they were removed from a fire break. In a city where many people lose their lives and belongings to fire you think they would see the sense in this. - Integrated bus system ran out of money. At least we didn't take precious funds from elsewhere or quickly build new tollgates to try and recoup the money. M5 is working just fine now thanks. Far fewer bottlenecks in the morning. Which beaches in the country still have blue flag status? Any ANC politicians been arrested for taking a stand with the people against drug dealers in their community lately? thought so. If you want crime reduced in the country you should vote DA so that they can resucitate the economy, encourage foreign investment and create more jobs and maybe with less unemployment there would be less crime. Or you could vote ANC and watch them scare off the few investors we have with talk of nationalisation like BHP.

      4daluvofSA - 2011-03-03 16:01

      @Melly my child, playing in traffic is not a sport that everyone can identify with. Just hang in there with your imaginary friends....

      Read "The State of Africa" by Martin Meredith and tell me honestly that the ANC is not leading us down the same path as all the other African countries after independence. It's like dominoes. In each and every case (starting with Ghana in 1957) the "leaders" only enrich themselves and their "elite" (AKA their families and cronies). EDUCATE yourself. Don't be blinded by TRADITION. Liberate yourself!

  • Bruce Almigh - 2011-03-03 15:24

    Reading some of the comments posted here I'm just reminded why I won't vote the DA: The arrogance, the know-it-all attitude and the general lack of respect for black people's ability to think, are just not qualities you want to demonstrate if you harbour some ambitions to run this country at some point.You might have good policies and the ANC might be a royal screw-up, but until the day you stop looking at black people as some retards, forget about them ever identifying with you.

      colin langley - 2011-03-03 15:36

    Id like to know if DA supporters would vote for the DA it had a black head or if ANC would vote ANC if the ANC was headed by a white person. Until the day that people vote according to whom they think will best run the country and not by race we can never truly say we have the best government in power. Colour of someones skin does not determine who will best run our beautiful nation - we need great leaders not good indoctrinators.

      Zamalecq - 2011-03-03 15:43

      I cannot speak on their behalf, but I am 100% convinced that DA supporters would still vote DA if it had a black leader (BTW, you're implying that current DA supporters are not black, which is simply stupid). We (DA supporters) are colour blind and will vote for leaders based on merit. The ANC supporters are the ones who are not colour blind!

      AJ - 2011-03-04 05:30

      JIMBO99: if the DA leadership was all black and performed the same it would have my vote. If the ANC was all white and performed the same, they would never have my vote. Did I answer your (rather easy) question?

      Thamie_Durba - 2011-03-04 07:44

      Just to correct a perception. The ANC leadership has always been multiracial. In my ANC branch, we elected a white person as our chairman. The issue I have with the DA is that it refuses to acknowledge that reparations are needed for years of apartheid abuse. All they do is oppose every redress. They seem to be hamstrung by the strong presence of the former NP/FF (Apartheid) members in their leadership/membership/voters as well as fear of losing the white vote.

      AJ - 2011-03-04 11:55

      @Thamie_Durba The ANC has wasted enough money to pay reparations twice over. The DA does not just oppose, they have plenty ideas, and we both know that regardless of how good they are, the ANC would never adopt a beter idea or process from the opposition. Finally whilst some NP voters may have softened and found a home in the DA, it is the ANC and NP political bodies that formed an alliance together. The DA has always remained true to it's core principles, from well before '94.

      JIMBO99 - 2011-03-04 15:19

      And lets be honest, Until the DA are not perceived as the white party then they have no chance in hell of running or country.. Helen Zille must move on now, cant take her seriously.

A councillor cannot do that as (s)he is only accountable to the party and not the electorate. Get it... Those politicians that "win"their posts do so not to serve but for percuniary gain, until the next time when someone else can get their chance to "chow"

You never know you may be pleasantly surprised when you start actually getting the services you're paying for!

  • 4daluvofSA - 2011-03-03 15:41

    There was a time when I used to feel bad as a black person when another black person is in some sort of heated argument or fighting over something like parking space with a white person and then they (black) take this thing "of we are now equal and you are not my baas" a bit too far. Even though they were both fighting i used to think why bring race into this argument and what makes you think that this white man is arguing with you because you are black and he is looking down on you. After joining N24 and always reading some of the racists comments here mainly from whites towards black (yes I am biased) I was shocked to see that we clearly still have a long way to go. I know not all of you are racists but if for example i were to do a survey about racism and use N24 as a sample than that would say majority of white people are racists. I won't even have to do much; just look at the responses a white person gets when they say something which is seen as racist versus a black person. When the usual black suspects on this forum say something racist you would see a max of about 6 "likes" on their comment but if it comes from a white person there would be from 50 to 120+ likes and that says a lot about the majority of people on this forum and this also shows that black people does not support another black person whn they posts these racist comments but other white people support their own....SHOCKING!

      4daluvofSA - 2011-03-03 15:44 than turn around and tell us DA this and DA that! am not pro ANC but also do understand that black people are not as stupid as you think they are. Please don't tell us about Helen Zille being an activist! To me she was just a typical journalist during the struggle who wanted to make a name for herself and luckily she uncovered one of the biggest stories back then. We fought for our rights, you should also fight for your own since you like it as "us" and "them". You have a problem with BEE and the ANC? Go and protest outside the union buildings and stop wasting time protesting on the net! The only thing you are doing here is adding more fuel to the fire and even some of the black people (me included) who felt that some of the current Govt policies are inappropriate feel otherwise now as a result of the racism on this site! If there was no BEE/ AA would you still hire a black person over a white peoson if they had the same experience and qualifications?

      colin langley - 2011-03-03 15:45

      ok..calm down..have you seem some of the racist comments from your black counterparts....i guess that's ok?...maybe we should all f*ck each other till we are the same colour...then their will only be peace amongst poeple in SA

      @colin, clearly you did not read my comment properly. Read again. I also mentioned comments from black people and how much support they get from other black people versus the amount of support (likes) a white person receives on this forum when they post that kind of comment.

      VM1 - 2011-03-03 16:02

      We are still a long way from reconciliation - these racist think that we need bow and to be a good black person in these forums you need to be voting DA. There are even those who will have an African name but the language is not the same as what you would expect. I 'd rather be called a racist and stupid and stand by my poeple.

      GrimReaper10 - 2011-03-03 16:27

      No I have read what you have said. And you lost it when u said 50 to 120+ "likes" Any comment...racist or not, seldom get close to 50. A lot of comment are not racist. Anti ANC is not racist. Anti Malema is not racist. Anti government it not racist. Anti corruption is not racist. You will probably call this comment also racist just because I disagree with you.

      aidhinwiyat - 2011-03-03 16:41

      There is still a lot of anger. The question though needs to be asked is how many white people actually take the time to talk one on one with others. This is changing you old geezers need to let go of all you hate its just making you bitter

      AJ - 2011-03-04 05:36

      @4daluvofSA: Actually most blacks did not fight for their rights. Most blacks are still not fighting for their rights. And letting anonymous comments from strangers on a forum supercede manifesto's and track records of a political party is immaturity of the highest order. Should I judge the worth of the ANC by the actions and words of some vile person who I assume is an ANC Supporter? Come one... that's hardly fair or rational, and you know it too.

    As much as the ANC is not delivering to the people's expectations, but I cant vote DA cause i am not white.

      Zamalecq - 2011-03-03 15:58

      Why on earth do you say that?!!!! The mind boggles! You can vote for whoever you want to... that is the principle of democracy.

      Melly30 - 2011-03-03 16:05

      You can Vote for whom you want to be the ruling party!!! A Party that does deliver... A party for all. Most of the ANC supporters wont VOTE DA cause they are scared that we will go back to apartheid... It wont... WE ALL WANT TO BE ONE NATION... DA will make usre of that!

      Sage - 2011-03-03 16:28

      Why does everything have to be divided along colour lines? The colour of the person/party is irrelevant. Who can do an efficient job and does not steal, plunder and loot is the only consideration. And considering that, the ANC is not an option. If you continue to follow your mindset as per your comments, you're sentencing yourself to a life of misery at the hands of a thieving political party that steals from everybody, including you and is only intersted in serving themselves. Your ANC doesn't give two hoots if you're lying in the street dying of starvation or any other ailment. In fact they care so little they're going to have their own private hospital and never have to rely on the abomination on us, namely the NHI. Just another indication of how much your ANC cares. Give someone else a chance and give yourself a chance at as better life, don't rely on the ANC!

      aidhinwiyat - 2011-03-03 16:43

      Why not ruffle up their feathers a bit. I think you need to re look at the DA demographic you may be surprised. Do your own research don't listen to propaganda. It is your people who are opening their eyes "Shapa Sifuba"

      AJ - 2011-03-04 05:39

      @Bareng: you'd rather have someone you think represents your own skin colour intervene negatively in your life, than have someone you think represents a different colour intervene positively in your life? Hint for you: it aint' about the colour of the person at the top.

  • sceptic - 2011-03-03 15:47

    I spoke to a few black colleagues at work and they are all voting DA!!!! Much to my surprise!! Apparrently they are sick and tired of local council's lack of service delivery! I say "praise the Lord" !!!!!!!!!

      serious - 2011-03-03 15:51

      They told you what you wanted to hear. No Black person in their right mind would ever vote DA. Keep dreaming though. hehe!!

  • zulufox - 2011-03-03 15:51

    Why ANC is SUPREME... Let me count the ways: ANC backers... ANCWL, Cosatu, Sadtu, SACP, Nehawu, Samwu, YCL, Numsa, Popcru, ANCYL, MK veterans and millions of other South Africans who do not belong to any formation. WHY DA isn't: DA backers... DA Youth, whites, a few hundred confused blacks and coloureds...

      No logic in your argument.... "mine is bigger than yours". Say something intelligent if you want to contribute here.

      @zulufox. Shame, I can see I'm dealing with a small mind here. There is no 'truth' that is 'hurting' LMAO. Your original post uses a 5-year old's playground reasoning based on the obvious. Read some of my posts above that actually add value.

      sorry zulucousin, numerics doesnot make supreme....supreme is not a numbers game.......

      The value of a fruit tree is determined by the number and quality of fruit it bears, not by the number of parasites and goggos on the tree.

      Bonzo - 2011-03-04 00:14

      Hmm. DA is the only party in SA to have grown in support over the past decade. See the IEC stats. It's got more than 3 million supporting it now, and is still growing. There is great momentum. There are only about 2 million whites over the age of 18 eligible to vote. So judging by crude race figures, there are at least 1 million black supporters of the DA - and growing fast now with the absolute idiocy of Cele, Manyi and their sort in the ANC.

      AJ - 2011-03-04 05:43

      @zulufox: it is interesting that all the groups you mention I have no respect for, in the slightest. Whenever I hear of them it is either racist venting, striking, destruction of property,unemployment, corruption and mismanagement. I never hear of them contributing to or improving a situation. A combination of these traits hardly renders a party as being 'supreme'...

  • Fk - 2011-03-03 15:54

    @ Schmerz Honestly I just only wanted to translate to give people who dont understand soth a fair leaverage on the debate, yet trying to remain neutral. I dont even know much about Hitler

      Felix - 2011-03-03 16:05

      Thank you Fk, I appreciated it. I honestly don't see the point of insulting someone if they can't understand it... Winzit probably bitches with her girfriends about her other girlfriends behind their backs then smiles and hugs them.

  • Stefan - 2011-03-03 16:02

    @Poloyatonki, not even a 'tonki' bumps into the same stone twice (i.e. vote for the same party that keeps disappointing you) so I think you should find yourself a new name. I suspect though the ANC served you well - you're clearly not one of the homeless/hopeless masses that the ANC keeps lying to to stay in power.
