Where is the inclusive rainbow nation?

27 January 2015 10:00

From the corridors of Parliament to the beautiful plains of Giyani, the notion of a rainbow nation is sung out as an obvious reality.

The green between the black and white

I have a tendency to visit restaurants whenever I reward myself for something that I regard as somewhat significant. What better place to do this than at one of my favourite restaurants at Camps Bay in Cape Town?

The politics of personal perception

25 January 2015 15:00

What is the point of publishing the article “Race and Cape Town: Your colour matters at restaurants” (City Press, January 18 2015)? It’s a scurrilous article, not based on facts, but on one person’s perceptions. You haven’t even given those much-maligned restaurants a right of reply.

A strong case for a campus

It is well known that there are far too few university places available for potential students in Gauteng.

Not in the name of Islam

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.
