Quote of the week

It is with great sadness that I tender my immediate resignation. For many months I have compromised the values that I hold dear under the mistaken belief that I could be more effective inside the SABC than outside, passing comments from the sidelines. In the process the prevailing, corrosive atmosphere has impacted negatively on my moral judgment and has made me complicit in many decisions which I am not proud of. I wish also to apologise to the many people who I’ve let down by remaining silent when my voice needed to be heard. What is happening at the SABC is wrong and I can no longer be part of it.

Taking a short break from blogging

I will be taking a two week break from blogging from today. I will be leaving for France for a two week holiday and decided that unless something earth shattering happens while I am on holiday, I would rather not publish hastily written pieces just to provide content for the Blog. Thanks to all the loyal readers and feisty participants for keeping me on my toes over the past several years. I will be back in two weeks, hopefully rejuvenated and inspired. As we say in Afrikaans: “Dis totsiens, maar nie vaarwel.”
