Quote of the week

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.

Oh no, I agree with Jon Qwelane

It is not often that I agree with Jon Qwelane, that grumpy, tribalistic, sometimes homophobic, Jacob Zuma-supporting columnist, but his latest column seems to be in agreement with my post last week about the arrogance of MEC Bheki Cele. It’s things like this that really cheers me up because it suggests that we are becoming an almost normal society.
