Public drivers and Policemen in action

Judgement day as it was called (21 May 2011), a day which can be always remembered in South African football. Jane furse was not different ,the public drivers took on the policemen in a beautiful game of soccer at the new artificial ground. It was a warm afternoon in j-town when the drama of the beautiful game took its toll. People loved it and i couldn't agree more myself.

Caring for Growth

I like to think the youth of today, has the ability to contribute tremendously towards their development. As I go back in time and gaze upon the triumphant stories of people who made the best of what they had, whose spirit lives on to inspire us today, I believe that we too can still write our own triumphant stories. They are the heroes that we look up to as role models and legends, but they didn’t start out with celebrated victories. They too were just like me and you, starting out in life… Continue

Voting 18 May

I just voted. Luckily the queues were not too long and it went quick, but I was willing to stand there for 3 or 4 hours. 

Our country is a democracy and the most powerful thing we have is the ability for each citizen to make a cross. That is the foundation of everything. If a person does not vote they have no right to complain or to demand.

So, I want to provoke and say there are two groups of South Africans: those citizens who vote and are part of the process and those who do…

Real SA in action

I could not stop thinking about one of the most remarkable encounter in my life where the guys and girls from Sandton and successful (working for Convergence Partners) were mingling and having good times with the champs from Siyabuswa and Libangeni. They all played football in a bushy and thorny field, falling everywhere tackling each other, making jokes and the girls hanging out with the other girls and using open roof toilets and teaching each other computers. They shared KFC together.… Continue
