Freedom

The cheer force with which the stink bug or the locust would fight you gave off such a sensation of might in the palms of your hands yet one recognised that the insect also exerted a form of power to which if there was a loss of concentration in your palms it would escape and regain its freedom. It would be very difficult when you loose a dark green locust amongst the greened shrubs as it was camouflaged immediately due to its cloak.… Read More Freedom

The ANC Youth League should come up with a logical plan should it wish to appeal to even the so called liberal blacks or coconuts who scoff at their gesticulations as nonsense. If the league of the center of power respects the livelihood of South Africans (and I mean it in its true sense – all South Africans regardless of colour), then as a self proclaimed vanguard of the poor, the dispossessed and the proletariat it should cool headedly propose a sound plan that will appeal to all South Africans who still believe in the democratic state of this nation. You can quack your philosophy about how much you want to go it alone but here is a spanner in the works – do you have the skill and the experience? This question leads us to my last section below.… Read More Void

Armageddon

But let’s go back to the terribility of the world ending when no one else is savvy of it which should actually be the status quo the modus operandi, the blueprint plan of the end; no one should know when it will happen. By default no one knows when and how they will pass away. Perhaps maybe a strategic suicidal lunatic who sees self termination as a way out does see its glimmer as far as time and manner is concerned. Death the ultimate end to one’s existence is as defying concretization as is witnessing a miracle is to those who hear of its reportage. Listeners of miracles do not completely believe what they hear of other peoples prowess, a pinch of jealousy may have something to do with it but not always a bridesmaid.… Read More Armageddon

Brutal

There is a fable that is exchanged sometime when folks speak about the police. That if you were in a relationship with a dame and you happen to have a misunderstanding and she resorted to call the police because you slapped her they will be at your premises before you can finish whistling a falsetto tune. But that should you find your self abused by the dame and you happen to report her the police will just laugh you off and tell you that you are man-jelly and not man enough for her. Such is the myth. However in the face of violence that the police can afflict on people to a point of people losing their lives the police stand out as a menace and the urban legend referred to acquires a concrete specification.… Read More Brutal

Narrative Responses to forms of discrimination in South African literature

A reading of Nadine Gordimer’s short story Country Lovers 1980 reveals that the narrative is about a girl who has an intimate relationship with a white man but due to the situation that the event take place in, she is not a candidate for a long-term relationship with him. For intimate relationships across the colour line in apartheid South Africa were considered immoral and were forbidden. The man does not pursue marriage with her, she becomes his secret girlfriend and when she falls pregnant with his baby he takes the life of their baby away as a way of removing the evidence of what took place between the two of them. A careful reading shows that Thebedi and Paulus relationship’s evolution from a childhood friendship across colour lines as well as master servant-relation to that of secret lovers is ultimately destroyed by the very barriers it seem to elude from the onset.
