When I first saw this, I thought we had our very own George Floyd. Like South Africa’s very own Black Lives Matter moment. This story encapsulates everything that is wrong with government. But it highlights the intersectionality of skin colour and the Black Lives Matter Campaign. One of the first major Constitutional Court cases I […]

I was gobsmacked the other day, to learn that a dutch farmworker contracted coronavirus from a mink on a fur farm. This means that aside from the eight known strains that are causing the pandemic, an animal transmitted the coronavirus to a human being in the midst of a global pandemic (but despite it). Neither […]

It’s finally here. The big 4-0. I recall for Uncle Ian’s 40th birthday, my eldest sister got him a UB40 CD. I remember thinking “Wow! That’s old! 40! Sjoe!” And now here I am, baby!

So the country is outraged over a video that started circulating which shows Metro Police trying to arrest a toddler because he was playing outside. The metro police say they are looking into the matter, before adding that these were “peace officers”. Now, I’m not sure what that means exactly, by way of explanation. Arrested […]

CAn’t Diss: Don’t worry

#BabySesame was having a tearful bath time earlier. Then we fought over which pyjamas she should wear. I think both our nerves are a bit frayed. So she was moaning about some crazy scheme to glue sticks together. Of course, I wouldn’t let her play with the glue. And then, I had a brain wave! […]
