THIS morning as I walked from the parking lot to the office, a guy drove past with his eyes glued to his cellphone. How was he able to come out of a traffic circle without checking, I wondered, then immediately thought I’d be glad if he got hit with a demerit or two. I know there are critics who say it would be a bureaucratic nightmare, that the potential for corruption is high and it doesn’t make practical sense. They may have a point. But then there are those who go on about government infringing on their rights. With this lot I have no sympathy. When they’re speeding, they don’t care about the people they could kill. When they’re on their cellphones they don’t think of pedestrians they could hurt. When they jump…

a shining example

THE new Miss SA is living proof that confidence can carry you straight to your destiny (YOU, 22 August). From Zozi Tunzi’s success story we learn that if at the beginning you don’t succeed, try again. Had she given up in the 2017 Miss SA contest, she’d have missed out on the opportunity to be the SA queen today. Many women buy into the idea of beauty enhancements, but Zozi believes in herself, sporting her natural hair. There’s nothing wrong if women feel comfortable in their weaves, but it’s detrimental to feel less confident if you can’t afford them. Zozi’s the perfect example of what natural beauty is. She must continue like this throughout her reign. Perhaps she can manage to inspire young women to win their life back from the hands of…

WE’RE NOT HELPLESS Going out in public with cerebral palsy is difficult. I get tired and I often need to sit down. I shake involuntarily and I walk differently. People’s reactions to me range from a quick question of whether I’m okay to invasive concern which makes me feel very uncomfortable. While I appreciate people’s innocent ignorance of my circumstances, people need to help empower disabled people by allowing them to be independent in a public setting. I’ll definitely ask for help if and when I require it and I can recall many instances where I’ve done just this. MISS INDEPENDENT, EMAIL BEST FRIENDS FOREVER Who can beat this? I am 84 and in 1955/56 worked in a typists’ pool. Three of us were married in 1956 and, despite distance, are still in constant touch. One lives…

a tragedy for all

It doesn’t matter from whose perspective one looks at it, the entire Zephany Nurse abduction saga was, and still is, absolutely devastating to all involved. On the one hand you have a young couple whose whole world is cruelly shattered when their baby is stolen. Their marriage doesn’t survive their shared grief. Seventeen years later, by a series of weird coincidences, they’re reunited with their biological daughter who’s a stranger to them and who calls her abductor Mommy. On the other hand you have a woman so desperate for a child she risks everything to steal another woman’s newborn baby and raise it as her own, deceiving not only her own husband, but everyone who knows her. In the midst of all this intrigue you have a young girl who unreservedly loves her “parents”…

in brief

Liam Hemsworth’s parents must have been horrified at him getting involved with that morally bankrupt Miley Cyrus (YOU, 22 August). She’s a real wrecking ball. Hopefully Liam will live a happy life now that he’s rid of that batty woman. HOPEFUL, SMS Either Prince Andrew is incredibly naive or he knew what Jeffrey Epstein was up to (YOU, 29 August). I simply don’t buy Buckingham Palace’s statement exonerating Andrew of any impropriety. JAY, PRETORIA Anne from Northpine wrote in about feeding breadcrumbs to birds (YOU Say, 29 August). I heard that birds can get ill from the yeast, that’s why it’s better to buy wild bird seed from a supermarket. SHELLEY, SMS To Disheartened who’s looking for plus-size clothing (YOU Say, 29 August) try Miladys. They have clothes available in every size. Trust me, I’m also…
