From high drama in Senekal over farm murders to the past week's state capture arrests: These were the big talking points of the week and what you had to say about it.
"I don't think you can blame any 'right wing elements' for the fury and frustration of these farmers. It's been building for decades now. They are unprotected, they see themselves as being the victims of politicians who play the 'kill the boer' hate game, and for all any of us know, many of these attacks may indeed have been ordered." – HerebeDragonz on SA's toxic triad invades Senekal: Rampant violence, broken justice, cynical politics
"The wind has changed direction and now the thieves are hiding behind the anonymous voices of those that have scored from the thievery.
Let justice be done
Let justice seen to be done
It's our turn now, the turn of justice" – paul.osullivan on Axe hangs over a senior ANC leader and a former Cabinet minister’s heads
"Good liberation organisations can seldom make the transition to good government. We need serious change. Great article again Ralph, concise and proper communication of ideas." – Jaws on The story of the demise of the ANC by Ralph Mathekga
"I totally agree with your view on this matter, Melanie.... all symbols and statues which represent oppression of any person or supremacy over any person should not have any place in any society anywhere in this world. South Africa needs statues of black South African leaders and heroes, specially here in Cape Town...." – user742812 on Don’t do stupid sh*t (if you really care about Afrikaner culture) by Melanie Verwoerd
"Unless you have walked in someone's shoes, or experienced what they have experienced, you cannot place a blanket denial on it. 'Good work' does not leave hundreds, if not thousands, of people hurt, damaged and abused." – James4.17 on News24 documentary 'portrays opposite of values KwaSizabantu stand for and represent'
