Some of the additional security features required at the President’s Nkandla homestead have been revealed at a press conference assembled by Police Minister Nathi Nhleko earlier today.

I’m not a feminist. I am sympathetic to the cause, but I’ve never been all that impressed by people who lay false claim to labels on the slimmest of pretexts.

Advertising a city must be quite a tricky proposition. How do you sum up a vast and disparate mix of people and places in a 30 second timeslot on the radio or TV?

It remains to be seen whether this was a good idea or not; certainly the way it was done didn’t seem to be very well thought out.

Stop what you are doing and look around you. Take it all in. Take note of where you are. Who you are with. What

The last time I visited the Kruger National Park, I watched a woman feed a baboon through the window of her car.

Today, I am ashamed. We should all be ashamed. We are a nation of moaners, always ready to criticise and to complain.

I have watched the events unfolding at Nkandla with great interest, because they reveal something awkward about us South Africans.

Huge government tenders may be awarded to unqualified but well-connected companies.

Colour matters. It is quite a difficult thing to test, but evidence is mounting that the colours we are exposed to have an effect on how we feel and act.

Have you ever seen the DA trying to protest something? It’s all a bit sad.
