Hello darkness, our old friend

14 December 2014 15:00

Ordinary people are adversely affected by load shedding, and there may well be disastrous consequences for jobs, livelihoods and our sinking economy.

Songs with little substance

7 December 2014 15:00

I read with interest the article “Young Lions stayin’ alive” by Shaka Sisulu (City Press, November 30 2014).

When will we end the violence against our women?

30 November 2014 15:30

On November 21, as I was sitting in the public gallery of Parliament on a warm and windy morning in Cape Town waiting for the debate on the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children to begin, I started thinking of how sick and tired I am of the rivers of tears, mountains of heartache, and forests of broken people and families.

Zuma must take rap for Nkandla mess

30 November 2014 15:00

The ANC is led by capitalists. I fail to understand how a transparently fraudulent project like Nkandla is being protected by our own people who we voted for to deliver services to the poor of our country.

The house that fell apart

23 November 2014 15:00

The recent behaviour displayed by our parliamentarians is disturbing, with the name-calling, shouting and refusal to obey the rules of the House.

Honour our icons while they’re alive

23 November 2014 15:00

Nelson Mandela, the father of South Africa’s freedom, had to overcome so many barriers; so many prejudices and misconceptions, lies and struggles, before he liberated his country.

Cops have lost control

9 November 2014 15:00

The brutal murder of Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Senzo Meyiwa at the hands of merciless gun-toting criminals is an indictment of the current state of policing in South Africa.

Lwandle was a political ploy

4 November 2014 13:00

The article “Lwandle’s poor must have their dignity restored” by Thami Ka Plaatjie (City Press, October 26 2014) once more proved the Lwandle inquiry was little more than a political hit squad.

Why are we a nation of haters?

2 November 2014 15:00

I am appalled at how some people have reacted to the sad news about the passing of Orlando Pirates and Bafana goalkeeper, and the captain of both teams, on social networks in recent days.

Dear struggle elder …

29 October 2014 13:45

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

19 October 2014 15:00

I was quite astonished to read your article “Arms deal critic wilts under scrutiny” (City Press, October 12 2014), which you immediately contradicted by saying that I stood my ground.

Let there be work

I would like to raise an issue that troubles me greatly: the 8.3 million people who are unemployed in this country. What is it about this tragic situation that makes good people shut it out of their minds?
