Senekal last week had nothing to do with solutions. It was all about politicians’ testosterone. It was all about politicians’ egos. What useful idea came out of all that heat and noise generated by all those politicians in Senekal last week? There is nothing. Nothing that makes SA a better place. Nothing that leads us to a better understanding of race relations in SA after 1994. Nothing that is a solution to farm murders – many of whose victims are poorly paid, desperate black people – or a solution to the incredibly horrendous murder and crime problem in this country.
Along with the new design, Constitutionally Speaking is expanding to include two new sections. Contributions are invited to the seminar room, which is a forum for debate and discussion on constitutional law and political governance issues. Submissions must be between 700 and 3000 words and can deal with any relevant constitutionalism topic, including a comment on a court judgment or academic article, a book review, a copy of a talk or original writing on a topical issue. You may also wish to send information about seminars, conferences, lectures or new publications which can be advertised on the updates page.
