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
Cape Town, 20 April 2016- Having cemented its position as one of the continent’s most prestigious races, organisers of the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon will aim to take another step forward this year in their attempt to close the gap on the world’s biggest road running events.
Set to be held for the third time since its relaunch in 2014, the annual 42km race takes place in the picturesque Mother City on 18 September 2016, and proudly retains IAAF Silver Label status.
As the only standard marathon race in Africa to be awarded Silver Label status, after receiving worthy recognition from the global governing body for athletics following the 2014 and 2015 events, the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon will continue to target Gold Label recognition.
Says race ambassador and former Olympic silver medallist Elana Meyer: “We are very pleased with the progress we have made over the last two years, and we are satisfied that we made further advances by hosting another successful event last year. We have a vision and will continue to focus on that by making the required adjustments to ensure we are delivering a world-class event across the board. This will assist in ensuring South African runners have access to a world-class running event organised by globally accredited standards, while offering incentives and mentoring for local runners.” Continue reading

A musical celebration of a heart-rending part of our culture and history. A glimpse into a world that has for some been forgotten. “Home” is a musical fantasy conversation between disparate souls – family members, friends, strangers who lived in the former District Six. In one way or another we are all committed to this place – our homes – homes that the government would not allow us to live in. Was it perhaps the only time and place where the real “rainbow nation” was? “Sometimes a thought like that could cross your mind … ” Come, let’s go Home!

Bleisure travel is an awful contraction, but if industry experts are to be believed, a growing trend as business travellers add a little personal downtime at the start or end of work-related trips.
The reasons vary, from getting to know the culture in the cities or foreign countries where they do business, to coping with the stress of a connected, always-on world or simply as a reward for being away from home.
“I find that I’m able to concentrate and add more value if I’ve arrived a day before a big meeting or conference and given myself a little time to relax and acclimatise,” says Edward Frost, British Airways’ commercial manager for South and East Africa, who travels internationally at least once a month.
