About Me:

I'm a community helper/activist in Knysna. I'm an avid blogger, my main platform being my own website, www.LoveKnysna.com

Small towns are suffering more than most of SA during this economic return to reality. Party politics in Plett, Oudtshoorn and my beloved Knysna ensure our ruin. The DA has unfortunately been given a free ride by white fear when, in fact, they have a lot in common with the ANC. I criticise and despise both parties for their corruption and for playing party politics instead of focusing on the locals they are supposed to serve.

Unfortunately, despite all the 'gory' action, the Garden Route has been mostly forsaken by national media bias. I blog in hope that more people start questioning our irresponsible leaders so that they no longer run, unchecked, away from us.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) must be crying in many ways. They lost Bitou Municipality, what most still call Plettenberg Bay, by only 21 votes. The Active United Front (AUF) must be smiling.

I repeatedly predicted that these elections would be the most important since apartheid. I'm glad to say that's what they're becoming.

Meeting Tellinger was an absolute disappointment. He relies on charm and, where that fails, arrogance. He was unable to provide practical answers supporting the Ubuntu Party's manifesto.

I was feeling frustrated and trying to gather my thoughts. When i listened to the recording this morning, I was obviously talking to you as well.

An honest Premier Helen Zille will be outraged at her minions in Knysna.

Would you sell your daughter for the sake of poverty, tradition or both?

“The good news is that there’s 50 less paedophiles in this world".... this is the outrageous comment American Pastor Steven Anderson made after Orlando killings.

Animal rights has long been a contentious topics. In recent years, the battle has become more vicious as activists become more radical and media more sensational.

A Committee of Parliament has responded to my allegations of Democratic Alliance (DA) corruption and maladministration by asking the Public Protector to investigate.

Don't apologise before asking for something. Don't apologise for your beliefs. Don't apologise to a guy whose in your way in a shop or at work. Don't "Sorry, can i have the bill" to the waitron.

The Municipal Councils that rule us sometimes have little to do with democracy and everything to do with a minority having too much power.
