About Me:

I am 61 years old. Am interested in a large range of topics, including music, the arts, politics, the environment, financial issues, spirituality, social justice, democracy and human rights, alternative health etc. I feel I can make an objective contribution in these area's.

More and more properties owned by government departments are standing empty and have become derelict. It is not clear whether or not this is a result of land expropriation or mismanagement.

After my birth, my mother was too busy to pay much attention to me, so I was left mostly in the care of my black nanny, Letea, who was from Lesotho. She was like my surrogate mother for the first 4 years of my life.

Goodbye ANC. Go and re-invent yourselves into another frothing beast that will enjoy another feeding frenzy somewhere else. We workers will not stand for this. You can fool some of the people, some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

What I observe as a non-politician in South Africa is political parties skirting around issues; not willing to be direct (or truthful and transparent), and avoiding the inevitable, in a politically correct “dance”.

It is a sad reflection of the ANC’s governance that they have failed their mandate that was given to them in 1994 by the electorate.

If one looks at the major monopolies in South Africa, one wonders what the ANC propaganda and rhetoric is all about.

There was once a Creator of light and sound waves and he loved his creation.

I knew then as I know now, that previously moral, honest and upright leadership of the ANC had been corrupted by the lure of money and power.

Either Nelson Mandela had a different vision for the future of our democracy in South Africa, or he was not able to foresee the future...

If SA Rugby continues to make the game about money, and ignore the investment parents make in the game on behalf of their children, then the strong pool of players we have could disappear within a generation.

In my view, the SA Post Office has failed in its mandate to deliver the services it is responsible for delivering, and this is probably a reflection of the abject failure of most state enterprises.
