About Me:

I a male, retired academic and a practising management trainer and human capacity dveloper and builder.
I write and advise on topical issues.

I am a researcher and train and advise others on research related issues.

Widely traveled locally and internationally.

It’s the season to be jolly, a season to be silly and a season of wild promises.

Since this is the party manifesto season, I have been listening to all the manifesto launches and they all follow the same pattern.

I have to confess that I did not receive da SMS from da DA. It would have been a great injustice to my left thinking mind that a political party that has right leaning policies wants to paddle their lies on me, a highly educated and literate voter.

So Helen Zille and her new kissing partner Ramphele want to march to Luthuli House (for what ever flimsy reason), I hope they have more than their constitutional rights to defend them.

Even though Burkina Faso lost in the final, they did a splendid job of teaching us geography and sporting lessons.

I address this letter to you my fellowmen (not women) with a very heavy heart, anxiety, and bewilderment caused by recent horrific events that are increasing and rising to an unbearable crescendo
