Communities Fearful to Love

My childhood has been filled with uncles, aunties, grandparents and the extended family. Technically everyone was considered family – the butcher, the baker and even the candlestick maker – everyone was to be addressed as an uncle or an aunt. If we were to be found misbehaving in public – it was the community’s ‘right’ to discipline us.

COVID-19 is not just killing people, it is killing “god”

I’m calling the religious leaders of all faiths to seek truth. To take a lead rather than being led. How is that which is spiritual is now afraid of that which is physical? How is it that which preached hope are now hiding under their beds? I’m a Christian and we have not seen our leaders take any leadership from Jesus but the words on their lips are from Cyril… What’s your god saying to you at this time?… Or has he died too?

Did SA Lockdown too Early?

Sweden uses science and evidence to implement a different strategy, a lone voice in fighting COVID-19. However, Austria, Denmark and Norway and amongst others are also now lifting the lockdown… No not us… we let others think for us. Look at the protest in Michigan, US, the people are not having it – “We will not comply!” – they realise their civil liberties are at sake – wake up South Africa!

The State of our Neighbourhood – Ward73

Whether you agree with me or not, I blame the Ward’s leadership. When there is a ‘free for all’ what do you expect? When no-one respects the leaders of a Ward, this is what you get? If you are of the blind-faith camp in protecting incompetency because it’s your party- so it would be expected of you to think this is utopia. We see clearly that you are destroying this affluent neighbourhood.

Chowing the Money

Please dear government – instead of torturing and progressively bleeding the country dry of its assets, and mocking the country on the international platform. Why don’t you guys just clear its bank accounts and retire to Cuba or some socialistic state where your ideologies could be lived out.

Meet Uncle Vincent – Local Hero

These people #Ekurhuleni are NOT animals and should be treated with dignity and respect. Uncle Vincent shows more care for his community than your career politicians. Uncle Vincent does not have much yet will provide what he has to make his community better – and you #Ekurhuleni who takes the people’s money to provide increases to self-worth while making Reiger Park worth-less!

I am an African man with an Indian face

It is such, that because of my Indian face and my dark skin, that my bloodline can only be traced back back to the immigrant intake of 1860 when Indentured Indian labourers were brought by the British, to plant sugar cane in the region I grew up in . Am I faceless a number? To a government who once insisted it was going to help change the past and build a better future. But it didn’t! Twenty years free, and yet we are not free, not in any sense. Apartheid is a malicious word from a futile past, but how it still haunts our present.

Is South Africa for Sale?

Our people are forgotten and our government have abandoned their own. Where once Whites ruled this land based upon the colour of their skin now the domination is based upon the colour of their money, and our “comrades” are presenting South Africa on the silver platter to the highest bidder and no surprise it’s the Chinese who are the first in line!
