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.
There has been rumblings amongst some politicians about the “untransformed” Springbok rugby team. I am a firm believer in transformation in sport, but I am an even firmer believer in the firm torso of Bryan Habana and those long legs of JP Pietersen. Having them both on the field makes it worth watching the Springboks. May they both score tries tomorrow!
