"You are neglecting one important point, Mr. President. You are allowing black political leaders to make public threats against white people, and to exhort their followers to 'attack' whites. This is happening on your watch, while you stand by and do nothing. Your words sound reasonable and will help to quell fires, but unless it is followed up with actions, it is ultimately meaningless." – rynosauerman on Cyril Ramaphosa | Brendin Horner murder: Whether you are black or white, crime is a collective problem
"The ANC are like a dog with its bone when it comes to nuclear. Even if we started building now, it would take 10 years to get any electricity. And they want it by 2024? No nuclear plant has ever been completed on time and within budget. And if we did it with Russia (Rosatom) we'd be opening a path to the most horrendous corruption." – Dougalan on Here's Ramaphosa's economic recovery plan for South Africa
"Man is not, by nature, deserving of all that he wants. When we think that we are automatically entitled to something, that is when we start walking all over others to get it." – Jaws on Ace Magashule warns the Hawks to step back
"All farmers should be protected otherwise you and I will be sitting at the breakfast table with an empty plate. Stop making this about colour, it’s about food security and the economy." – imrxsqxrca on Black farmers refuse to pay bribes, kicked off state-owned farms
"Ngubane wants to know why it took so long? Is he implying they were ignorant to all these matters all these years? He is correct in saying the local people are suffering. Because of them yes! People worked at aQuelle for 15+ years, walked out there with nothing to show for it. Not a thank you, not a retirment fund, nothing...." – devoquality on WATCH | Inside KwaZulu-Natal govt's tour of controversial KwaSizabantu mission
