About Me:

passionate about writing both fiction and non-fiction. Loves soccer and a diehard music collector.

Every single SA citizen is conversant with the practical definition of this unfortunate blood sucking & economy twisting dragon and personified greed; directly strewn all over gov't corridors.

When I was born, mama cried tears of's been a long and a painful 9 months of ups & down for her. It's hard for me to fathom all changes mama went thru; while her blood and hormones struggle to adjust to my arrival...

On the 30th August I boarded a Shosholoza Meyl that runs 3x a week between East London and Johannesburg.

I saw her, She was glued to her monitor. I moved to her right to greet her: she glanced at me with an intrepid smile...

T'was way past midnight, laying in my sickbed in hospital. Thru the airy quiet of the early morning: medical machines were going on in their usual harmonized chorus!

With due respect to Mrs Dimpho Hani, how we loved Chris and moaned his death…it is time to move on!

The SA Dream began when Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela was released from Victor Verster prison, Cape Town on 11th Feb 1990.

Given all the contamination in our God-given atmosphere; courtesy from all the bad vibes and vitriolic exchanges between political rivals in South Africa due to oncoming General Elections in May.

Every generation blames the one before! Sings Mike & The Mechanics in their all time classic tune: In the living years.

Our story as a country is a beautiful one and envied by most of the world. Our negotiated transition from Apartheid into Democracy became a yardstick to most countries around the world bedevilled by incessant internal conflicts and wars.

If only Africans could wake up to the fact that the US and EU countries need us more than we need them, they'd stop this foolishness of devouring each other.
