Vaccine passports and Handre Pollard and the Presidency's evasiveness had readers hot under the collar this week.

"Going to malls and concerts is not a right. There are responsibilities required of all adults who wish to interact in broader society. It's like telling a traffic officer that they are discriminating against you by forcing you to drive under the speed limit. Narcissistic behaviour at its worst." – ExasperatedDoctor on PIET MOUTON | Unvaccinated must have limited access to malls, businesses

"Stop pointing fingers and read the interviews again. They are literally telling us how to go about saving our country from the bottom up. I hope every political party reads this and is reminded of the wisdom in these interviews and starts implementing the same." – user160401 on Q&A | 'We were nearing a racial war': Roelf Meyer and Jay Naidoo on 30 years since signing the peace accord

"Class is permanent. Even Dan Carter had an off day... one, I think! Having said that, I believe a flyhalf is made to look good if the pack is going forward. Goosen should be brought in as utility back to give Handre a skrik." – adpentz on Springboks back Pollard to atone for poor display: 'He immediately put up his hand'

"CR has to be the epitome of the term ‘follow me, I’m right behind you’." – Jim Connolly on Presidency evasive on new chief justice, Khusela Diko’s redeployment and Zuma parole

"Ace, they don't love you anymore. Can't you see? Why don't you spend your money on paying the fees of the students you sent to Turkey and who are now sleeping in the park, rather than on a useless court case?" – Eishmara on 'Not one to accept defeat' - Magashule may approach Supreme Court in bid to overturn ANC suspension - allies

"The writer claims that Max is a wonderful guy. Yet Max didn't even bother to check if Lewis was fine after the accident. He simply marched away like the little Prima Donna he is. Stop pulling the race card on Lewis. He is an incredible driver and has nothing to prove to anyone anymore." – Dini on OPINION | Did F1 stewards get it wrong blaming Verstappen for collision with Hamilton?
