OMG enough of the racism issue. Joburg is just as bad in reverse. The service levels in the shops is pretty disgusting, our neighbours at work ( a black construction company) call my white staff - white Boer bitches! When will it end? It's all over the world so rather make issue with important stuff like the fact that thousands are starving and dying of Aids and TB while the President spends all the money that could be used for these kids on his fancy palace and his ridiculous wives!
We all know what happened in Zimbabwe with the land 'reform' . Thankfully in S.A. we have people like AFriForum to help us. However no-one will be able to help us if that idiot Malema gets into power and has his way. He's already stealing from people, company's and the government - why not our poor farmers - ?
There are, according to the Government 'only' 4 million people out of work so why do we need 5 million jobs created? I think the word "million" means very little to people like Zuma who spends "millionS" on fraudulent and corrupt ministers, building his palace and legal fees to get himself out of trouble while half the country is either starving or dying of AIDS related illnesses. Unions are allowed to do what ever they like, workers go on strike and destroy the economy - who on Earth would want to invest in South Africa..where you are forced to employ unskilled black workers - your tax money goes on legal fees to protect corrupt politicians and the money that the poor workers pay into the Unions is spent on legal fees to protect the union boss who slept with his secretary? All too ridiculous - but hey it's Africa!
AT LAST! I have been phoning into 702 on a regular basis complaining that their adverts regarding Johannesburg..Its an absolute joke..the streets once 'paved with gold' are now filthy, rubbish everywhere, vagrants on every street corner, townships springing up on the side of the roads (Beyers Naude). We take overseas and local visitors through these disgraceful areas to get them to conference centres and they cannot believe what they are seeing. Crime is rampant, we live next to Windsor and the robberies are on the increase. Drive along Republic by the Randpark Golf Course near Cresta - illegal taxi ranks, filth thrown out of the windows and dumped on the side of the road. I do not support apartheid (on which everything is still being blamed 20 years after 'democracy' - however, those were the days of being able to walk down the streets without stepping into human faeces, having your cell phone snatched out of your hand and being proud of the once beautiful city of Johannebsurg!
and some people are not comfortable with either........and should not be forced into accepting something that they do not believe is a 'natural' occurance. I am very uncomfortable watching two men OR women kissing on the television for example.
Not everyone has to accept that being gay, catholic, white or whatever is the correct way to be. However whenever it comes to gay rights, its the straight people who are usually in the wrong because they are 'short sighted', 'narrow minded' or whatever. People are entitled to their opinion and if they are not entitled to theirs, then you are not entitled to criticise them!
It is unbelievable that millions of rands are being paid out -even the fact that the monies are being awarded by the courts when it is clear that the contractors should not have been paid. More corruption it seems but what can we, as individuals do?
Why don't we keep on keeping on about the race issue? Its articles like this that stir up problems. Leave it be - probably most people won't notice - and the answer to your question I believe is yes, white consumers do listen to white presenters and black to black. Its a fact of life
Its unfortunate that their electricity and water bill is high - maybe they should try and get donations for that rather than disposable nappies - full of germs and disease which sit on landfills for MANY years!
Well its obvious that the S.A. Government also support Mugabe - look at the money we have just donated...and showing a 'humourous' side of him in an interview will perhaps help the S.A. community to forget what a criminal he really is and speed up the decline of our country by trying show what a nice guy is is!
This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. MILLIONS of people are suffering from Aids, starvation and more in South Africa and we pay out millions of Rands to these lazy sods sitting at home - because they can't do their jobs. Why oh why do we continue to put up with this crap?
I do not beleive that the staff and even management knew that the company was going into liquidation as I was in their ofices the day before and assured that everything was improving and even discussed sports proposals for some athletes I am working with. I had a very good meeting with their Customer Services Manager who could not have been more positive. However, I do believe that the Chairman 'Blackie' was fully aware of what was happening and I believe that he should be held personally responsible for refunding the losses.
