About Me:

Working with languages, as a freelance translator, has proved how very similar people are, all over the world. We all want to be well, happy and loved, and not taken for granted and abused, particularly by governments we are supposed to trust.
Born in Zimbabwe, chose to live in South Africa, passionate about fairness and humanity in all things. Injustice, crime and abuse of all kinds infuriate and sadden me.
Sometimes I simply have to say what begs to be said.

As electioneering hots up, rhetoric and praise flood the print media, radio stations are filled with speculation, adulation or accusation and of course empty promises.

Another item which was not asked for, as has been pointed out on various social media platforms since Zuma’s ‘foot in mouth moment’ that he did not ask for the upgrades to Nkandla, is the e-toll system, naturally.

When it comes to arrogance, insouciance and sheer bloody cheek, our great breeder knows no bounds.

First and foremost would be ‘Lying 101’. This would include the subjects ‘How to lie so that you convince yourself’, and naturally a sub-course entitled ‘How to spin anything’.

As I was delayed again, same place, same day of the week , different week, it occurred to me that there may be a particularly sneaky reason behind the delay.

So now that Julius Malema has been provisionally sequestrated, SARS clearly means to make sure that somehow he repays the R16 million which he owes in taxes.

Currently, there are at least 8 Member States, probably more, facing violent conflict and wars of varying duration.

As the big freeze continues across the US, one very interesting possible development on our own continent has come to light.

Crime affects us all, no matter what drivel is uttered by the so-called law enforcement agencies.

As e-tolls went live, and secondary roads backed up into congestion chaos as a result, so Minister Dipuo Peters is expecting motorists in Gauteng to do ‘the honourable thing’ and buy their e-tags.

So within the same week that Eskom announces power is tight and load-shedding is possible, within a day in fact, Sanral has announced that e-tolling will go ahead, starting in less than two weeks.
