the wheel turns

With the present discord between the various unions, I wonder if the ANC's election machinery is starting to seize up.

The high road

After his embarassing pronouncements on Malawi's public roads while trying to sell e-tolling to a sceptical electorate, now Zuma wants to build bridges with the rest of the continent. Talk about a verbal u-turn.

Cutting down a little

Let's see how long Pravin Gordhan's austerity measures last withvthe government fat cats.  Without political will they can just continue to loot as they wish.  The thought that this is just an election ploy continues to niggle and after elections none of these good intentions will be enforced. The best New Year resolutions generally don't last long.

A tongue lashing

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "tongue twister". Our trusty president lets his mouth run away again, showing great diplomatic skills and embarassing the whole country.

Be afraid, be very afraid!

First we had ghost posts, then ghost schools - now we have ghost pupils.  Will these SADTU criminals stop at nothing to cheat and connive and steal the future of our next generation by giving them a poor education?

Government asses

Talk about overloading.  Buffalo City Metro can't cope to service the greater Slummies area and now they have been forced to take a whole bunch of rural villages on board.  Its a guaranteed lose-lose situation.

The inmates are running the asylum

A scary story about a R 300 million reform centre that has become paralysed and totally dysfunctional because of infighting between two government departments.  This was the subject of an award winning expose by one of the Dispatch journalists.  Why must it take investigative journalism to bring this kind of thing to light. Unbelievable.

shut down

The obvious joke is that if the ANC government shut down, nobody would notice.

We need to clean house!

Can't believe the government's slack attitude to the Kenyan Mall incident and the whole situation where terrorists seemingly slip in and out of South Africa at will. Unless there is covert support for these vermin?
