Repent, overseers!

Repent, overseers!

That Christianity is a dominant religion did not surprise me but left me pondering. Whether Christianity means being born again, or having an individual relationship with Jesus Christ, or coming from a Christian family, or whatever, I look around and wonder how can it be true that eighty percent of us are Christians? Personally, I […]

No accountability. No honour!

No accountability. No honour!

Six years into his premiership, David Cameron resigned after the British public rejected his ‘stay’ call, rather opting to leave the European Union. He could have stayed and delivered Britain from the EU, but true to what he preached before the vote, he elected honour over greed for power. Standing outside 10 Downing Street, he […]

A decomposing potato!

A decomposing potato!

I also wanted to offer an opinion – no, perhaps to ask a few questions on how so many Blacks would have voted the DA in the last local government elections. My understanding, the one understanding that I hear almost consistently when listening to talk shows or reading pieces written by a lot of Blacks, […]

Stand up and try again!

Still on the matter of Blackness!

We are a strange bunch, we Blacks!

We are a strange bunch, we Blacks!

These are the words of an old man to me this morning. He was getting out of his car, telling me he’s been listening to a racism debate on radio. He didn’t end there. He wondered why Blacks would offer to defend a white man, let alone a white pastor, who believes they – Blacks, […]

We are guilty of the flames!

We are guilty of the flames!

The stinking rot is as clear as daylight. You become a councillor, you are able to influence who becomes municipal manager (and senior managers leading the municipality).  You gain this influence, you are able to guide the direction in which lucrative tenders should go.  You are able to influence tender decisions, you are able to […]

High walls of Jail!

High walls of Jail!

Throughout the week, ‘Krazy’ -a song from the album, haunted me. Lingering even now on my mind is a line on that track: “You ain’t gotta be in jail to be doing time.” Made me think.  Sad thoughts, alas, for I realized a whole lot of people among us are doing time, even though they […]
