Please stop telling me about respect because you only have oppression, corruption and ageism to give in return. Do not hide your incapacity, insecurity and unintelligibility with age – it’s stale and it’s embarrassing.

Jacob Zuma must face his problems

26 October 2014 15:00

There are three things that cannot be hidden for long: the sun, the moon and the truth. These are the words of Buddha. President Jacob Zuma should be made to take responsibility for the allegations of corruption that have been thrown at him.

Word of advice: Dig deeper

Equal education is a basic right

7 September 2014 15:01

There must be no segregation in education. All children must receive free primary and secondary education from the state.

To the point

7 September 2014 15:00

Jacob Zuma’s Umshini Wami on pause

7 September 2014 15:00
