About Me:

Former South African living in Melbourne.

It’s becoming harder these days to find folks who openly state their affiliation to the ANC. Almost as hard as finding anyone willing to admit they voted for the Nats way back when.

The renaming of streets, towns and cities is controversial and often produces heated debate. It is proposed, for example, that 2013 will be the year in which Pretoria becomes Tshwane.

Patriotism is a form of pride. And pride is the deadliest of all the seven deadly sins, for one simple reason: it is what stops us from changing.

Nelson Mandela and FW De Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in securing a transition to majority rule in South Africa.

The possibility of a Failed State is now a real possibility that demands serious thought and planning. This isn’t a piece on whether one should stay or go; it’s about how one might go about ‘making a plan’.

It could only be one man...Julius Malema. “Arguably the most influential person in the country”.

Sir Winston Churchill, upon visiting Uganda in 1907, described it as ‘a garden of sunshine and deadly nightshade’.

Two decades have passed since those heady days, and South Africans still live in tumultuous times.

It goes without saying that the DA has an image problem among the majority of voters, as SA is still racially polarised society.

Today I would like to salute everyone who tried to do something good for their fellow human beings in South Africa, no matter how small.

Most South Africans just want an opportunity to live decent lives and secure the future of their children. However, the dream of a rainbow nation was short-lived...
