Are race-based policies helping or hindering us build our nation and economy?

Freedom or Youth Day in South Africa resembles a host of activities around the country where not much happiness are seen among our youth and we need to question ourselves as many of us come out of the oppressive apartheid era.

It is humiliating to call any of our youth as an affirmative action (AA) or an employment equity (EE) appointment in any position in commerce and industry especially when such appointments are done in management and leadership positions, notwithstanding the fact…

It is my Vision that Cape Town City will really aspire as the true and trusted Mother City once we acknowledge the contributions of so many of our forefathers, mothers, fathers brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts who…
