Matrics: Passing into the ranks of the unemployed?

2020-01-14 12:21

National forum needed to address botched circumcisions

2020-01-02 11:17

As both a human being as well as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has had to deal with the terrible end results of both road carnage and the appalling continued murder and mutilation resulting from the totally outdated circumcision ritual, I have, possibly, a more in-depth view than the average citizen.

Digging deep to fix societal challenges

2019-12-11 16:25

Research shows that whenever people try to build communities together, there's actually more good they can take from the past and mix it with the current opportunities including new technology, information and resources.

Modern-day ANC should be ashamed of itself

2019-12-09 15:04

Govan Mbeki, Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo were humble, caring people who put others first – not their bank balances and while I never knew them personally, there was never scandal about their behaviour as is common these days.

It's late but not too late for the ANC NEC

2019-12-09 10:43

The official mantra of "innocent until proven guilty" each time a member appeared in court has worn a little thin and whilst it was pleasing to note that this phase was not used in Bongani's case, regrettably the statement gave no indication that appropriate action was going to be considered by the NEC.

Ramaphosa should focus on a more inclusive approach to governing

2019-12-04 13:31

As long as there's no unity within the governing party and its alliance partners, SA is unlikely to realise its economic ambitions. The dream of creating millions of jobs will fly out of the window.

Township schools a tinderbox waiting to explode

2019-11-25 11:18

The migration of learners from townships to former model C schools is a tinderbox likely to explode and make the FeesMustFall campaign look like a Sunday afternoon picnic.

ANC must be lauded for De Ruyter appointment

2019-11-22 08:29

De Ruyter could actually be pink and I wouldn't give a hoot as long as he can assist in stabilising Eskom - as it will have a disastrous impact on ALL South Africans if the state-owned enterprise sinks like the titanic.

There's more to be thankful for than we think

2019-11-19 12:33

If you still have all your fingers and toes and you’re still in a good state of physical (and mental) health, well then you are a lot more advantaged than many other people in this country… and you should be feeling very thankful for that.

Senzo Meyiwa: All lives matter

2019-11-13 09:26

It hurts when so much publicity and investigations are being made about one individual, when so many other murders are unsolved and not assigned to an investigator.

Dear Mr President, choose the people over the party

2019-12-11 13:19

Greed and self enrichment, corruption and cronyism, devious deceit, rapacious, relentless and reckless policies, and the hollow statements referring to pro-poor policies, are stale and perpetually unbelievable.

Is the DA effective as the official opposition in government?

2019-12-09 14:39

Seemingly it has become the norm of this ANC government to re-deploy and promote rogues, crooks, thieves and fraudsters. And yet the DA officials in government do absolutely nothing about it besides comment in the media to earn themselves name and fame.

Open letter to the President of Zimbabwe

2019-12-06 10:36

What will it take for you to realise that empty propaganda cannot substitute genuine political and economic reforms? You need to actively resolve the corruption, incompetence, nepotism and human rights abuses happening on your watch.

Government can't be trusted with South Africans' health care

2019-11-25 11:08

You are asking South Africans to trust you with a billion rand enterprise yet your cabinet has yet to fix the other billion-rand enterprises. I strongly suggest putting this idea on hold until you fix the current problems you are facing.

Ramaphosa must lead SA to its 'Golden Age'

2019-11-20 10:16
