In another twist involving the public protector’s office‚ the Minister of Co-operative Governance an.
I fully sympathise with Jimmy Nkoana, who resorted to assaulting his vuvuzela-blowing neighbour. Although I do not agree with his actions, I know the feeling.
I dread mid-week Kaizer Chiefs victories. It means we won't have peaceful sleep because of one idiot in my neighbourhood and his insensitive behaviour.
He does not mind blowing his vuvuzela until the early hours of the morning.
I ask myself whether such people are employed, at school or doing anything worthwhile with their lives.
There is nothing wrong with celebrating one's team's victory, but when it reaches proportions that disrupt other people's lives, then there is a problem.
There is nothing wrong with people blowing their vuvuzelas at the stadiums, but when they get to residential areas they should be cautious, especially after mid-week games.
Weekends are noisy anyway so I don't really mind then.
I hope whoever is judging Nkoana's case will bear in mind what drove him to take such drastic steps, and the fact that he had warned the neighbour before.
I don't condone Nkoana's behaviour, but I fully sympathise with him.
