Not all states of depression can be lifted

2019-08-13 13:52

Many years ago Clem Sunter said that for us the High Road would be to follow the example set by Brazil - not Europe. But our compass was a bit off, and we're heading for Venezuela.

Helen Zille misses the point, again

2019-08-13 13:31

The issue here is not about freedom of speech, it's about the methods of applying that freedom of speech, particularly in a quasi-instructive approach that mobilises people to react in a particular manner - huge difference!

Dear City of Cape Town, with reference to water levels: Reverse the charges

2019-08-08 14:33

When the drought set in, all citizens were requested to conserve water. This led to the CoCT not meeting their budgeted target as less water was sold. Next, the same residents were hit with severe water tariff increases to balance the CoCT budget.

2019-08-08 14:44

Communicate with your people and demand positive change from all ministers, and local authorities, that will result in turning the tide of doom and gloom and make us all proud South Africans again.

Ramaphosa's greatest hour is before him

2019-08-05 11:21

The country is on a knife's edge, and the hour is late. Now is the time for you, Mr President, to draw back your shoulders, push out your chest and emerge from the shadows of mediocrity and become the people's champion.

Is AB de Villiers the Neymar of SA cricket?

'New dawn' clean-up starts at home

2019-07-22 10:39

After a successful sixth IEC election we enter into a new post election era. As we usher in the "new dawn", it is imperative that we inspire the change we want to see implemented amongst our communities and the nation as a whole.

LETTER: Zuma's testimony meant to derail commission

2019-07-17 09:06

I would have rather not allowed Jacob Zuma to derail the focus of the country and the movement away from mandate of the Zondo commission of inquiry because that is precisely what his outburst is intended to achieve.

Ramaphosa needs to lead. Now more than ever

Open letter to the Public Protector regarding sexual predation in schools

2019-08-01 10:26

I am not ‘Gogo Dlamini’ but I am an ordinary South African citizen and I can tell you quite clearly that the Office of the Public Protector appears to me to have little or no interest in us.

Jacob Zuma suffers from memory loss

2019-07-24 10:30

Zuma claims and clearly remembers that there was a long running plot against him. He claims that several attempts were made on his life since the 1990s. This seems strange as he did not display any fear at ANC rallies or events where he openly sang and danced on stage and with the public.
