About Me:

Full time student with a passion for the African continent and contibuting, positively, towards the continent's social & economic development towards an integrated African market.


I cannot help but wonder what a resounding majority of our country’s population use as criterion for choosing which political party to vote for.

Arguably, the origins of African consciousness can be traced back to rebellions to slavery by the African diaspora finding itself in North America and the Caribbean.

Living in the ‘New South Africa’, one would expect the dream of a rainbow nation to be clearly evident in their daily interactions with others.

I feel compelled to share my view on what is rife in dividing those with good intentions yet allow themselves to be reduced to meaningless squabbles along ideological class-lines.


During one of my usual strolls from one lecture to another I overheard two white males discussing why it is impossible to find parking in any of the varsity's parking bays each day.

Upon deliberating on the topic of that which defines an African, the concession was that that the focus should be on one's culture, heritage and colour.

The contextual definition of a renaissance specifies the outburst of mental energy, ‘the desire for progress, an ending of old ways and a freeing of the creative spirit’.

Writing on the topic of what it means for me to be African has presented more of a challenge than I had initially anticipated due to reasons that will follow shortly.

It is said that a person’s experiences shape who they are, if there is any merit to this presupposition then black Africans come in an array of anomalous shapes and sizes.


The current global economic climate sees China and India presenting themselves as two major emerging markets that are, collectively, averaging in excess of 7% economic growth per annum.
