So what’s on TV tonight and how do I wrestle the remote away from the guy in the house?

The N3 hell run

2019-07-08 10:30

I don’t often travel the N3 in the direction of Durban. My job keeps me more desk-bound nowadays and leisure time seems to nudge us rather towards the Midlands, the Berg and Gauteng than the coastal belt.

Goodbye, Nondu

Two weeks ago we lost a wonderful colleague.

Let’s take a walk, Sir

2019-06-03 10:28

Is there anybody out there?

Noises in the night

2019-05-26 16:20

As I walked towards the kitchen, I stopped dead. What was that?

A good man gone

2019-05-06 10:03

On Tuesday afternoon, I received some bad news. I was scanning through The Witness classifieds when I came across a death notice, out of the blue, for a contact I had worked with for many years.

The showman’s con

Let me tell you a story.

Hi-tech cheek

2019-03-11 09:38

Technology is moving fast. Sometimes, it feels too fast even.

The drama of flying

2019-02-25 12:47

I’m not scared of flying.

Keeping alive the illusion

2019-02-06 16:05

Like other scandals that have shaken the ANC, the Angelo Agrizzi testimony at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into state capture, which for two weeks captivated the nation, has come and gone, paving the way for the ruling party once more to captivate citizens with liberation struggle tales — a strategy that has never disappointed in elections.


Photojournalist legend says cheers

2019-07-15 09:03

Today I’m writing about a Witness legend in the form of the one, the only (drumroll please …) chief photographer Ian Carbutt.

Teaching your little ‘bundles of joy’

2019-07-03 16:07

I have never been passionate about teaching before, but that little chance of being passionate faded away on the first day of teaching.

Of agony and ecstasy

2019-06-10 12:08

I admit I’m a bit addicted. There’s no shame in my habit though. Lots of people do it.

Being a black woman in Asia

2019-06-03 10:15

So I’ve been sitting and pondering on how to actually begin writing about my experiences teaching English as a second language in Taiwan so far; so I’ll begin where I begin because beginnings happen everyday.

Pragmatism in a time of panic

We like to talk of failure. The economy has failed. Reconciliation has failed. The ANC has failed. The government has failed. In our despair we flail around, looking for salvation, sometimes from the first snake-oil salesman who happens along.

Ruining the mood

The limits of the vote

I believe I have fallen in love. Her name is Rochelle.
