About Me:

RAFIQUE GANGAT: Philosopher, Cricketer, Hunter, Diplomat, Talk Radio Host – ‘jack of many trades and master of all’ - lives in Jerusalem nowadays and is a Communications & Media Consultant in the Holy Land. He has authored, ‘Ye shall bowl on grass’ (Verity Publishers) a collection of short stories with busts of insight into his life in Apartheid South Africa, his international travels and return to South Africa, where all can now bowl on grass, as it has been divinely ordained.

Observing from afar - South Africa today is suffering from the culture of "the here and now," the culture of "no planning," the culture of "no real accountability" as characterized by, and thanks to regular exposures by the press, of a significant sector of public servants.

André Gide - "The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity"

Last month I went back to South Africa to visit my dad, who had just come out of hospital after having had a cancerous growth from his chest surgically removed.

"THE SOUNDS OF VIOLENCE" : I hear your footsteps softly creeping Through my house as I lie sleeping

Post-1994, South Africa promised the realisation of a “dream” for all previously disenfranchised persons. But it was not to be!

What happened to the principles of a free and egalitarian society in post-apartheid SA that was supposedly the end-game for all in the struggle?

An Arab intellectual told me this recently, "I visited SA after you obtained freedom in 1995 and surmised – a white state with a black scarf".
