Pimp my ride

I had a most interesting encounter on my last evening in Atlanta (USA) with a cab driver after a night out with some friends. As it turns out, cab drivers in Atlanta are pimps too. I get in the back of the cab and I see a chilled bottle of sparkling wine resting in the…

The most romantic stories in the Bible

The first story is about Jacob. Now Jacob, son of Isaac wanted to get married. So he went to his uncle’s crib, who had two daughters. One hot. The other not so much. The oldest daughter was not so hot because the Bible says, “Leah had weak eyes”. I suspect she was squint. The younger…

An open letter to Kulula (Or is it Khulula?)

I didn’t know who to address this to so I decided to write an open letter. As you might have noticed, this has become a very popular method of addressing officials in high places. (Did you see that pun? “High places”. Hahaha! Funny huh! OK, maybe it’s just me.) I thought that I should probably…

Ukutawuna finally explained

I promised to write a blog explaining the term, “ukutawuna” or “tawuning”. Well, I have finally come (excuse the pun which you will get later) around to fulfilling that promise even though it is far later than I originally intended. Many people wonder what ukutawuna means, especially those who keep seeing it being used on…

Is Zuma using Gareth Cliff meeting as a PR exercise?

5FM jock Gareth Cliff recently penned, or rather, let his fingers dance on a keyboard and published a letter to the government on his website. The letter, Dear Government was a sensational hit. It was forwarded to me several times by people who to a large extent share the same views as Gareth. Since Gareth…

2012: If Zuma’s replaced, who should take his place?

Read an interesting article today on the Mail & Guardian and was moved to pen this arrogant opinion. I’m happy to see that people within the movement realise that the current ANC leadership has put it in a precarious position in terms of intellectual weight. As the Mail & Guardian reported, “there is a general…

Should we reply before or after the RT on Twitter?

When retweeting and then replying to a tweet at the same time, where should one write their response? Before or after the RT? This is an age-old debate that has raged for some time. In fact it has not even raged, it’s been completely ignored. People are doing their own thing. They’ve turned this into…

Was Mbeki trying to save the ANC from itself?

This party needs saving. It needs to be saved from itself. The enemy is not some evil and external force; it has parasites within itself that have so transformed themselves into what seems to be the ANC. The chameleon-like camouflage has so fooled all those within that they have come to believe that this is…

Dear Julius Malema, you are not the travesty, we are

I have never met you. I have never talked to you but I have been within close proximity to you. Yes, on both occasions you were smoking cigars. There is nothing wrong with smoking them at all. I for one have smoked cigars many times. None of which I bought with my own money of…

Winnie is mistaken about Mandela

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela speaks as if it was not the ANC collective that made the decisions that caused her to complain about Nelson Mandela, her ex-husband. She places all the blame squarely on his shoulders. She acts as if she was not part of the NEC that agreed to the principles that would lead to the…
