RIP Flabba

12 March 2015 8:51

A tribute to Skwatta Kamp’s Flabba.

8 White. 8 Female. 8 Black

8 March 2015 15:01

On the basis of a shaky and anaemic argument, the article, “Black lawyers blast Mbete” by Charl du Plessis and Maryna Lamprecht (City Press, March 1 2015) casts aspersions on the commitment to transformation by Speaker of the National Assembly Baleka Mbete.

Ramphele is not to blame

2 March 2015 6:00

The article, “Agang SA founder Mamphela Ramphele moves on” by Biénne Huisman (City Press, February 22 2015), contains some serious inaccuracies. In particular, I point to the claim that “The money owed to former staff members ranges from R10 000 to R30 000 for the months of July and August”.

Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe’s recent call for Africa to dissociate itself from the International Criminal Court will only deny the African people the justice they deserve.

Democracy under attack

22 February 2015 17:00

The outrageous and degrading display put on by government at the state of the nation address in Parliament last week is a nail in the coffin for the democracy some like to lay claim to.

I’m happy about Curro

8 February 2015 15:00

The Curro school saga makes me happy. In this 21st year of our democracy, as we move into adulthood as a nation, even the private schools are beginning to reflect South African demographics, with white children in the minority.

Right of reply: You got it all wrong about me

8 February 2015 15:00

The articles “Sex, Sars and rogue spies” (City Press, August 10 2014) and “Is she SA’s Mata Hari?” (City Press, August 17 2014) were published in City Press and its Afrikaans sister newspaper, Rapport. Numerous other stories were published as a result of these initial articles.

We understand white privilege

1 February 2015 15:00

The contents of the piece “Race and Cape Town: Your colour matters at restaurants” singles out Four & Twenty as an establishment that perpetuates racist service.

When paranoia replaces intelligence

South Africa is easily spooked by bogus intelligence reports. It is easy to lose count of the number of so-called intelligence reports that have been used in factional wars throughout our democratic era.

Using a word like ‘faggot’ normalises hate. It’s not okay

Die Antwoord has previously been reprimanded for using a homophobic slur and argued that “faggot” is “not offensive in South Africa”, because our society is embracing of colour, religion and different “sexual styles”.
