While you don't look old enough to remember the bad old days of censorship, you obviously have a well developed feel for what it was all about.

This is a very good idea But how many do they know about this it the reach and have only because I know that those who need it most are the poor of the poorest who still awaits basic services who are not intrested in WC Gov politics.

Mr. Premier it is a very good thing. Ignore the critisism and go on. Let us remember the heroes of all as well in the rural areas

Dear Priemier Ebrahim Rasool,

Can you please change the name of Hernus Kriel Rylaan here in Atlantis to Dulcie September Drive to commemorate one of our own fallen heroine of the Western Cape. Hiers is klomp straat name van mense wat geen simpatie of belang het vir on mense hier in Atlantis nie. Ek dink dit geld vir 'n klomp soortgelyke dorpe hier in die Kaap.

Storm voort met die goeie werk en alle voorspoed vorente.

Mr Premier, Why dont you focus on housing or "Homes for all" instead of renaming streets? And if you feel that renaming is a issue more deserving of PUBLIC funds, then rename after the Flora and Forna of our Province, and not political figues.

Ja nee

Dit is mos nou sensorskap op die hoogste vlak - of noem mens dit advertering.

Die ding is premier - ek het die reg om deesdae te se wat ek wil en jy het die reg om daarmee te maak wat jy wil. As jy my reg wil monitor en polisieer - dan skryf ek net die selfde kritiek op plekke waar jou voetsoldate dit nie kan beheer nie.

Kom nou - join die res van ons in die 21 eeu! Die internet gaan oor die vryheid van spraak! As jy dit nou wil misbruik - los dit eerder want jy mors nou twee mense se tyd - mors eerder net jou eie en verander 'n naam!

Mr Premier, not sure where to post this but my wife has requested a personal number plate 'THULA' and we were told that it has been denied as it is offensive. Could you explain how a word that means 'Quiet/Peace/Tranquility' can be called offensive. I am not trying to be difficult or ignorant but do not understand.

Good day Mr. Rasool,

I want to invite you and everyone who views your site, to have a look at our website

We help fight crime in our communities, by informing people in communities about crimes in their areas. We also help in searches for missing people and especially missing children. All our coordinators are working voluntary on cases.

We need to get every roleplayer actively involved in fighting crimes against children. We need to get proper communication between the police, media and other roleplayers, in the search for missing kids.

The ideal would be to have police immediately call in the media as soon as a child goes missing, and get that child's face out on every television station, the child's name and decription on every radio station. As you know, the first few hours when a person goes missing, is usually critical and could mean the difference between life and death.

You started well, Ebrahim. I added a link to your blog on my website here:
But you seem to have faded (next to Helen's, who's page I also added) Your last post was months ago...

Keep it up Mister Premier!

I have only recently heard about this blog, but disappointed that the last entry was a good few months ago!
