IT WAS a delight to read the interview with Zamani Saul, premier of the Northern Cape. That’s not something you can say often when discussing politicians. Usually when we read about the people who run the country it’s about corruption, infighting, backstabbing and all the other nasty things that permeate politics. But this politician is an inspiration because he’s put people front and centre of everything he does – as it should be. Instead of taking advantage of the perks of his office, he’s used that money for service delivery. Not for him a luxury vehicle – instead he bought ambulances for his province. Zamani proves it can be done right. He’s shown that those elected to positions of public office can use the opportunity to do good things and improve the lives of…

so much to live for

THE story of Taylië Jaap’s remarkable recovery (YOU, 8 August) reminds me of my daughter. In 1995 she was flung off the back of a bakkie. She broke her right wrist and her left eye popped out of its socket. She had blood on the brain, her head doubled in size and she was unconscious for two weeks. Doctors told us if she survived she’d end up brain-damaged. Through the grace of God she pulled through and got her driver’s licence a month after being discharged from hospital. Like Taylië, she says she had an encounter with a higher power while unconscious but decided she didn’t want to die because she had a lot to live for. Unfortunately, her Road Accident Fund claim wasn’t paid out but, as she says, life goes on…

A SAD CASE What a spoilt, entitled and sickening child Thomas Klintworth is for suing his mother for his educational funds (YOU, 8 August). Here in Canada students work two or three part-time jobs to pay for residence, fees and living expenses. No one expects their parents, who are hard-working, supporting other children, paying off homes and so on, to treat them like birds wrapped in cotton wool. I hope Thomas loses his case and learns to become self-sufficient. Stop being a child and become a man. So many in the world have so little and are grateful for what they have. This boy needs to spend time helping those less fortunate than himself to learn real values. I sincerely hope the judge in this case realises this and tells Thomas that his parents…

magnificent women

August being women’s month always brings a huge smile to my face. It brings to mind those women who’ve played a vital role in my life: my mom who gave birth to me and offered me all that a mother can give her child; my grandmother who took care of me while my mom was out working; and my aunt who was strict with me to the point that I thought she hated me. That was until I grew up and realised she was trying to shape me into a responsible person. I also want to show gratitude to the woman in my life today. She makes sure I always look good and that I don’t go to bed without having something to eat. I really appreciate these women and consider myself…

in brief

Anne remembers tasty tea leaves (YOU Say, 8 August). I remember a thick layer of rich cream on a bottle of milk. SYDNEY, SMS In response to the letter about the joy of long-distance relationships (YOU Say, 8 August): Dineo Makala, you’re truly blessed with such a loyal partner. During my first three years of marriage my husband lived in Piet Retief, Mpumalanga, while I was in Roodepoort, Gauteng. Not so far away from each other, yet he was still unfaithful. So, heartbreak! Unlike yours, our love won’t age like red wine. JOY, EMAIL I found out that my husband is someone’s sugar daddy. He’s almost 50. Now he’s falling apart because I found out and I’m leaving him. ANGRY, SMS In response to John Shabangu who wrote in expressing his regret after losing his close…
