About Me:

Business owner and passionate South African citizen who hopes to see South Africa grow to her full potential.

It's time to think on an individual basis, rather than as a collective.

I refer to it as a saga, because the whole matter surrounding the upgrades to Jacob Zuma’s homestead and whether he benefited unduly from these upgrades was legal or not, has been going on for what feels like an eternity.

Not in the 22 years since South Africa achieved democracy, has there been more tension or conflict than is on display at universities across the country.

Corruption in the public sector is not nearly as bad as what the media makes it out to be.

Amidst the racial furore that has been dominating headlines in South Africa over the past three weeks, I wonder if we as South Africans are too focused on the negativity in our country, to notice what we do have.

Just when I thought I had seen it all in 2015, our esteemed president takes one more opportunity to give us the middle finger; and no, not to adjust his glasses.

Picture this; going to the home affairs department to sort out an ID or passport issue.

I have to agree with News24 about the content of some of the comments being down right hateful and rude.

I listened in bewilderment as you addressed parliament on Wednesday.

Eskom's tariff increase of 12.69% will become effective from the 01st of July 2015. Aside from the tariff increases, we are all paying for Eskom's mistakes in various other forms.

At a time where tensions are at an all time high between the ill-informed citizens of SA and foreign nationals, you would think that there would be more responsible leadership in addressing the situation.
