About Me:

I'm a community helper/activist in Knysna operating through my websites: (tourism) (politics) (good deeds) (we all know it) (directory) (my love for rock 'n roll) (pays for the Causes)

I also manage as a free service to Knysna's Rastafari community.

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

As Premier, how could she have been absent during the many crises that have occurred in Eden District? Who is in charge when something goes wrong?

All is not well in Eden District, the eastern region of the Western Cape. Oudtshoorn runs from crisis to crisis whic

ANC envoys will undoubtedly be scurrying to and fro in an attempt to heal the Tripartite Alliance (ANC, COSATU and South African Communist Party) that has dominated the country's politics for 20 years.
