My e-tolls bill went up this month (new debit Aug 2013 - 2015 , R75000), new balance R115 000 (rounded).

Benefactor:  New mayor

I am inclined to go with Steerpike here. though I also saw a headline yesterday about a group of “learners” that set fire to their school because they got bad results. Apparently they probably did ok in physics... that said I think the entire group mindset (sic) of our results are crap therefore we need to burn down the school is flawed, but quite in keeping with the masses. One has to marvel at the logic...we fail= burn down the school, bad service delivery=burn some trains or busses, xenophobia=freedom to steel and destroy foreign owned shops...of course the list goes on TIA

I saw on SABC news, reactions of DA and EFF.  DA saying it shows ANC can't be trusted wrt sorting out corruption sht, EFF [young woman] more specific, referring to his track record, known involvement including a Gupta thing, and they had specifically told ANC that he was unacceptable.   But they went ahead anyway.  So, not good for cooperation, probably means no change re aggressive service delivery protests, will only aggravate that.

Bad for perceptions re finance/investment...they continue to disregard or underestimate even while president is telling a different story.  Not good for the private/public partnership story.  This can only encourage the corrupt players.

Just got rid of the criminal/thug mayor here in PE. Not an ANC criminal mind you but  UDM! Wonder who the new criminal mayor will be?

^^^I just now heard on radio.

This is odd, though - the Jhb one.  Why did they do it, in the face of opposition, and given the action against such transgressors.  And considering they [ANC executive /whatever] removed the Durban mayor forthwith, never mind the considerable support for her.

“On Sunday, weekly newspaper Sunday World reported Zuma was in Cuba seeking treatment for an illness linked to an alleged poison plot from 2014. He also, apparently, struggles with memory loss.”

It is such a shame that beheading is no longer allowed.

Actually for the damage he has caused he should be hanged, drawn and quartered.

Mentioned night before last on SABC news, that he is ill.  In other words, came to the end of the line of legal tactics.  They know that after this last hearing/submission at the Zondo Commission, the next step would be prosecution. 

Interesting that it's Cuba, not Dubai.  :)  As if it can't be treated well enough here.  iow, He's escaped.  LOL, the poison plot again - good one!
