About Me:

I am an active member of the ANC. I am a political communication activist, a researcher and a seasoned columnist...

The boys who have allegedly murdered Thoriso are not from poor backgrounds. In fact, they mirror the millions of spoilt, ill-disciplined and arrogant kids from the suburbs.

Tito Mboweni's views are nothing but an expression of emotional hot air, and must therefore be rejected in the realm of sensible deliberations.

Whilst we appreciate that any life lost is a tragedy, we must also be guided by empirical data before arriving at conclusions.

The ANC, as a custodian of the principle of fair justice, must be in the forefront of its defence, rather than of its undermining, consciously and unconsciously.

I have to admit the SABC's 90:10 music policy was neither scientific, nor was it properly canvassed with local artists. Having said that, I am convinced that this policy was a step in the right direction.

The naming of the Dr. Che Guevara Community Health Centre, which is one of the few community health centres in the Free State, and in the whole country, operating for 24 hours, is both revolutionary and brave.

How are the victims of crimes of Apartheid and colonialism supposed to reconcile with the perpetrators, when justice has not been served?

In a mixed economy like ours, it is not the primary task of government to create jobs? Bourgeois propaganda would want ideologically innocent minds to believe otherwise.

A revolution is commonly defined as a fundamental change of a government or social order to a new system. Unlike reform, which refers to quantitative changes to certain, often external aspects of the system, revolution relates to a change of the entire system.

I hope that you will one day find it necessary to come to us, members and voters of the ANC, and to explain why you acted the way you did. I also hope that, in that platform, you will indicate to us who gave you the mandate to act the way you did. Lastly, I also hope that you will give us an explanation as to why you decided to become modern-day Askaris.

In most platforms where I argue for socialism, I always get the brisk question; “Where has socialism worked?” My sincere belief is that the question that needs to be asked is; “Where has capitalism worked?”
