About Me:

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

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.

It is no doubt that the passing and the mourning of the most celebrated liberation Icon of the world, Nelson Mandela; has brought a lot of self-introspection to the Republic.

I am sure like most South Africans, caught by surprise by the magnitude of his life and death; you can relate to this.

It was kind of scary when the crowd started to boo very loudly as Zuma was gesturing to begin with his speech; very telling.

We can turn our tears into joy today as a country, if we could only reconsider, look back over our shoulders; and remember where we’ve fallen.

Finally, it rained in GP last Saturday, a sign of good things to come this Summer; and boy, did I celebrate!
