Plight of a little man

Today all genders are equal however it is the foundation upon which each gender/identity(s), if you will, is nurtured that is of primary importance otherwise the picture will continue to ferment with cold violence. It starts with attaching value to boys and girls equally when they make their entry into this world. By attaching value to men and women equally without neglecting either one of them continuously. It starts here. Notice that I am not bitterly neglecting anyone behind. … Read More Plight of a little man

The Symphony of Line and Colour

I believe Khoza’s Temporary feelings has revealed an artist of an interesting vision and that only the freedom he possess at the moment wherein he is not signed to any commercial gallery will continue to encourage him to push the frontiers of his forte undeterred. The grip of the commercialization of his enterprise may limit his movement and curtail his themes to what the commercial art world has come to expect of young artists through the ruby of monetary value ingrained in the elusive gimmickry of what is trending or maybe he would take us farther and emerge amongst the rest when his mid career period catches up with him… Read More The Symphony of Line and Colour

Hindsight: The insignificant civil servant

In any circumstances wherein unforeseen problems crops up one is bound to analyze the situation comprehensively in an effort to make sense of what is happening. Perhaps to a certain extend it dulls the nerves a little bit when we think we have found the source of our troubles, even if we are wrong, there is a cold comfort in suspicion and strength in isolating a challenge.… Read More Hindsight: The insignificant civil servant

Hindsight: A *stand-Off/us vs the rest

It is possible to have a peaceful warm welcoming South Africa. The center of power should safeguard the lively hood of South Africans society, educationally and economically; after all it is South Africans who have voted it into that highest rung. Since these two tenets of modern society are complementary, that is education and economy; there is no reason why an ordinary hard working South African should not feel secured in his homeland even when he is competing with a skilled foreigner provided they are competing on a leveled field. At the heart of xenophobia is fear of domination by the other. I cannot overstate further wherein the solution lies¶… Read More Hindsight: A *stand-Off/us vs the rest

Hindsight: South Africa, it is time to Study Apartheid

We need to study Apartheid, we need to acknowledge it formally for what it was pre-democratic South Africa. And to what it is in post-Apartheid South Africa. Only when we have looked closely at it as a policy, better still, when we look at it as an Ideology our South African society through which the various ideological state apparatuses such as religion, economy and education are deployed to entrench it will we appreciate just how damaging it can be/it has been to the South African national psyche… Read More Hindsight: South Africa, it is time to Study Apartheid

Presence in absence

A switch off occurs when you go off the grid of social media connectivity whereby you go amiss in the digital social life of people who have you listed as their friend knowingly or unknowingly. Quite a number of people could care less whether you are around at the best of times. Unless if you are a kwaito star who has reached the nirvana of a staple diet wherein your devotees daily probing, poking and in-boxing of your person is their reassurance that they are part of the world we live in.… Read More Presence in absence

The Evanescent POST

During a walk with a friend to nowhere about a month ago something snapped when my local post office’ non appetizing architectural form reared itself in the suburbanscape. I dropped a one liner of interruption during their turn in our conversation ‘you know the post office is on strike?’ I said hoping that I would solicit an ounce of sympathy. I should’ve known better… Read More The Evanescent POST

At the other end; a person *unknown and the Dandy Kleva

With colorful food tossed down and the hooch doing its fair job the dAndy-kLeva visited the main toilet in the backyard where mostly family members sat about chatting and drinking. The party in whose honor we would never know was now in full swing. You only had to take in the scene with unblinking eyes and a swig of breath to appreciate swell of this party.… Read More At the other end; a person *unknown and the Dandy Kleva
