About Me:

Independent Analyst

When Coloureds show unity, self-pride, assertiveness and strength it not only unsettles other groups.

Affirmative Action policies need to be clear, with clear targets, start and end dates or we will be consigning certain people to lives of uncertainty and a similar fate as that of the majority.

It took me a very long time to write directly to you as I’m doing now, I wanted to make sure that I was not being too harsh nor too lenient on you, just as fair and as just as I’ve expected from you all my life.

My heart bleeds for my fellow South Africans, most of whom seem to be struggling with this concept of freedom.

There is an oft told story about Mandela phoning numerous wealthy people in the middle of the night to ask for money for his Foundation or to build a school…this I will get to later, but first…

It has been my desire to refrain from political commentary, or at the very least, keep an uninterested distance from the shenanigans of those pulling the strings at the top.

If only we could get proper dialogue going and a brand new deal but the truth is being distorted for a win and a place – you’ll be are forced to avoid discomfort even when the truth is undisputed.

One doesn’t have to be in intelligent to make smart decisions; if that fails, the movie ’12 Years a Slave’ offers lots of lessons.

It has been my observation that there are broadly four main categories of people in South Africa: new money, old money, politically connected individuals and the working class

Budget deficits don’t bother Governments much, they just keep borrowing, it’s the western way and encouraged even if you’ll be the country existing only to pay off debt with steep interest.
