About Me:

Jeremy Thorpe has worked at the SABC and 702 in various news-related capacities. He presently runs a very cool community radio station called Tshwane FM.

My journey to work now involves a trip on the Gautrain from Rosebank to Pretoria, followed by a brief 12 minute trip on Metrorail from Pretoria station to my place of work.

Congratulations on achieving 22.2% in the national elections. As you know, it’s the highest percentage achieved by any opposition party against the ANC.

To many South Africans, Derby-Lewis is the devil-incarnate… responsible for the murder of Chris Hani, a man who could very well have been a future leader of South Africa.

Mea culpa. I’m guilty. Yes, I’m the person who occasionally parks in disabled parking spots.

I’m sure many of you will have used the Gautrain by now, but if you haven’t you can take it from me that it’s fantastic. It’s quick, clean and quiet, there are regular onboard announcements telling you where you are – and it’s spot-on time! And it doesn’t go under those cursed e-toll gantries!

Like many others on this site, I’m anti-e-tolling and I’ve so far resisted the temptation to buy an e-tag.

The week before last I attended an IEC (Independent Electoral Commission) briefing for community radio stations on next year’s elections and the upcoming voter registration weekend.

As a former merchant navy cadet who went through the same basic training as Nick Sloane, I’d like to add my voice to those who’ve congratulated him on his successful salvage of the cruise ship Costa Concordia.

Do those of us who speak English as a first language – or speak it fluently on a daily basis - judge others by their ability to do likewise?

Did anyone bother to watch more than a few minutes of the Comrades Marathon on TV on Sunday?

In many ways, the 2014 elections will be a watershed. President Zuma has already said he wants to see the ANC regain two-thirds of the vote.
