Zumaville: See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil

It’s with utter disgust and disbelief to think that “sane” people could take such acts or decisions. This by itself is not the decisive factor, it’s the fact that you have individuals and organisations that see absolutely nothing wrong with this. How is it that this clique — bound by corruption, incompetency, greed, looting, lack…

Going bonkers over bunkers

So, this is where we find ourselves in 2011. We have, north of the continent, the now deceased Muammar Gaddafi — notwithstanding his bunkers from which he ultimately had to run away from, not because they did not provide him with enough comfort, but because they could not withstand the people’s will. We now, unbelievably…

SA’s fallen and can’t get up

In my previous blog “Don’t gamble away SA’s future” I question the future of a country not providing proper education. So we’re halfway through the year and there hasn’t been a peep out of the political hacks regarding their plans to ensure education standards, particularly for the matriculants, will be improved and the tinkering down…

Don’t gamble away SA’s future

It really takes a lot of chutzpah to be part of the politically connected few with privileges. The audacity that we see in the conduct, lack of accountability, total disregard for the law and lack of realisation that the culture and odious behaviour they exhibit is breeding a sub-culture that is eating away at the…

What I wanted for Christmas

Well, Christmas has come and gone. I did not get what I really wanted. What I really wanted was a good bottle of castor oil! You see, my late mother used castor oil for pretty much everything that ailed the children in the house. You had a cold, castor oil would fix it. There was…

Moving forward…

So, one would hope that after years of struggle, the oldest liberation movement in Africa would have learnt from all the others gone before it. Well, it did not! Why would a liberation movement have such difficulty to move to the next stage ie political party? Why indeed? When I talked to a friend about…

How did we get here?

How did the “Rainbow Nation” get to this point? How did this downward spiral pick up such momentum that not only are we headed toward the ways of Zimbabwe, we are gladly embracing the destination? Did this happen because as a people we have relinquished our responsibilities to politicians? All nations have a point where…

Shameless

Mr Blade Nzimande, have you no shame? I ask this question having just read what the South African Communist Party general secretary was giving as justification for the “proposed” media tribunal. Could it be that Blade sees the “danger” of the media because of the double-speak and luxurious living at the expense of the taxpayer…

JZ needs to show some political courage

South Africa needs political courage, a change. A change for the better to steer away from the ill-informed direction we are bearing on at the moment. This is exemplified by, but not limited to the Protection of Information Bill, “proposed” media tribunal, lack of service delivery, abuse of taxpayers’ money by the politically connected. This…

Excuse my rant III

I must admit, I’m very encouraged by what I have seen, read and heard in our beloved South Africa in the last three weeks. Ours is a blessed country with massive riches but to think of the plight of the poor who go to bed without food, proper housing, healthcare, the opportunity to get a good…
