Johannesburg, 26 April 2016 The recent anti-rape protests at Rhodes University by students and staff members highlight an important and disturbing issue in South African society, where it is estimated that one in five women are victims of rape and other forms of gender-based violence (GBV) each year.

Not only have the protests brought to the fore the scourge that is rape and GBV, they have also  sparked a call for a fundamental shift in our collective consciousness regarding the manner in which rape and GBV are dealt with, as well as how the unequal power relationships between genders should be addressed.

In the spirit of joining this call and strengthening its voice, youth leadership development organisation loveLife extends its support for the protests and its core underlying message – that we as responsible, aware and engaged citizens do not stand for rape and other forms of GBV; that we see it as our duty to protect and uphold the rights of those who have been marginalised and made vulnerable in a society that has for far too long been complicit in reinforcing unequal gender power relationships.

If you’ve ever caught yourself replicating dance moves from a music video, then you’re direct proof of the power of a video as a branding tool. To recognise both the creative process and the value of a music video in the building of an artist as brand, the Loeries have created a dedicated music video category. Entries for this year are open, and artists or producers creating innovative music videos are encouraged to enter their work.

Last year New Monday received a silver Loerie for the production of Thee More Shallow’s 2am video. Prior to the category being established, music videos for artists such as the Die Antword, Spoek Mathambo and Skrillex have been awarded Loeries for creative excellence. Continue reading

My Citi Bus Stations vandalised DuNoon Uzasa Phoenix

My Citi Bus Stations vandalised DuNoon Uzasa Phoenix


The City of Cape Town is extremely concerned about the devastating consequences that the violent protests and vandalism of MyCiTi stations has on the law-abiding residents of Dunoon.

Over the past six weeks, at least three of the MyCiTi stations along Potsdam Road had to be closed for several days, denying MyCiTi commuters from Dunoon access to essential public transport services to get to work to provide for their families. Furthermore, the Phoenix station on Omuramba Road has been closed since 15 March 2016.

I have extracted commuter statistics for the MyCiTi stations at Usasaza, Dunoon, Killarney and Phoenix to determine how many of our residents have been affected. Today I can confirm that over 3 000 commuters from Dunoon and the surrounding areas have been adversely affected on a daily basis by the thuggish behaviour of a small group of troublemakers who have no regard for the law.

Five acts are in the race with four nods apiece, with a cross-section of genres sharing the spotlight

Dreamy Afro-soul newcomer Nathi, house music supremo Black Coffee, rising rappers Riky Rick and Emtee, and sultry songbird Zonke Dikana share the nominations spoils at the 22nd Annual South African Music Awards, grabbing an impressive four nods each.

The contenders for this year’s awards were announced amid great excitement and anticipation in Soweto on Thursday, 21 April 2016. The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA), the official passenger rail transport sponsor, ferried the VIP guests and media on the Metrorail Business Express to the Soweto Theatre, a landmark venue, located in Jabulani in the heart of Soweto, for the nominations “reveal”. Guests were escorted into the venue and then entertained by young performers from the Morris Isaacson High School, which is the very school that played a major role in the Soweto Uprising in 1976, forty years ago.

As the original whistleblower, I am not surprised at the findings of the Seriti Commission.

With due respect to Judge Willie Seriti, this outcome was decided long before the Commission started and Judge Seriti only had to design a process to get a predetermined outcome – to give President Jacob Zuma what he wanted.

This is an utter and total waste of time and taxpayer’s money.

Once again, these findings were designed to protect one man – President Jacob Zuma. Continue reading
