The Sumo

The Kleurling takes it!

Call me NastroSumo, but didn’t I mention in my piece called Making beautiful Coloureds Together that the future of the world lies, with the Tik somewhere in Mitchell’s Plain, in the Kleurlinge? Yes, yours truly, The Sumo, has predicted this current state of affairs being of mixed race is the very way to go,…

Invasion: Nam

I thought I could never breathe in actual heat short of a flame-blowing display gone smolderingly wrong, but Namibia quickly helps one re-evaluate what one holds as the physically impossible in nature, replacing your sentiments with an extended actual of what reality can be. At first glance one would not understand why a European superpower…

The Friendly City – wine, women and calm

I can’t get over seeing amaXhosa do manual labour; I just cannot get over it. To the Sumo, a boitjie born and bred in the lush bosom of the KwaZulu-Natal’s North Coast and exposure to amaXhosa strictly limited to what I saw on TV (Government officials and celebrity personalities) and heard (through the folklore which…

It’s easy for you and I

Let me start by unequivocally stating that I reject in the strongest terms the violence that has been unleashed upon defenseless foreign nationals in the townships and shanty towns of our country lately.,African on African violence reminiscent of the divide and conquer strategy mastered by the old regime. But – and there is a very…

Violence is not a game

There has been an exponential increase in the rate of reported cases of violence in our schools of late and this time the focus is not on the violence brought about by drug dealing gangsters terrorizing our young ones with a promise of something rather ‘ighry to puff on or snort. No, the violence that…
