About Me:

I am a lover of life, a soul in search of a purpose, a spirit that seeks to use all talents given by God.

The passing of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is a perfectly timed occasion in a time when our country is faced with increasing hatred, inauthentic leadership and poor representation of dynamic women leaders.

As we welcome the removal of Jacob Zuma, I would like everyone to do introspection. If the spotlight was to shine on you, how would you look?

Just in case you haven’t figured it out yet, corruption is not only a Zuma issue, it’s more widely spread than that: in the private, public, education, development sectors.

Those who have been advantaged be it by colour or gender will enjoy the fruits of advantage for generations and generations before they could feel disadvantaged.

This August got me incredibly reflective and I found myself with inner conflict that although this month celebrates the strength of women, to date women are still fighting endless unwarranted battles to earn their stay on earth.

I ache not for land but for the eroded souls that was born of racism. The equal erosion of the souls of both the oppressor and the oppressed.

Cyril Ramaphosa is starting to be remorseful of the Marikana tragedy and considering the fickleness of the reigning leadership, I do not know if it’s genuine or a necessary act to validate himself as a prospective president.

A writer once wrote no one can disrespect you without your permission and those words remind me of the noble man that is Thabo Mbeki.

We should learn that one cannot give that which they don't have, if you have peace you will give peace, if there is pain within your soul, you will speak pain to life.

The world is in short of leaders who can stand up for something deeper, leaders with alignment in words and actions, leaders who can speak up even if it's uncomfortable and unpopular to do so. The current move by ANC members to dissociate themselves from Zuma however is not heart warming in any way.

Listening to the news has become incapacitating and more of a health hazard as one is always bombarded with the wrongness that is happening in our beautiful country.
