Verlede week was ek in Gauteng toe die direkteur generaal se verslag oor die benarde posisie van die land se munisipaliteite bekend gemaak is. Ek kan nie eens onthou hoeveel munisipaliteite deel is van die handjie vol wat skoon oudits gekry het nie, ek weet net dit was baie baie ver in die minderheid. Daar is selfs munisipaliteite wat nie eens finansiële state vir 2015 / 2016 voorgelê het nie.  Onderweg na die lughawe is daar 'n lang gesprek - Read more...

Ek is moeg, maar selfs dit is te gemaklik, te vlak van 'n beskrywing vir die moegheid wat in my lê.Ek is moeg om sterk te wees, om op te tree asof ek alles onder beheer het vir alles en almal. Ek het nog nooit gedink ek is die soort vrou nie, maar die lewe maak mens sterk met dit wat in jou pad gegooi word.Miskien het dit per ongeluk gebeur, want die grootste ironie is dat wanneer ander na my kyk, hulle my so sterk sien. Hulle sien my so bekwaam - Read more...

Some weirdo suggests I write my memoirs. Whatever for? And to whom? The life of a journalist is one big bore, so to write about anything significant or exciting is a misnomer. In my case there's an additional dull period at the start of my career. Banking. Nothing can be duller than working in an environment where one is surrounded by folk whose lips are permanently stapled. Computers were still unknown, so cheques were physically transported in - Read more...

Motoring to mountain goat country from Paradise, one of our favourite pit-stops is a picturesque and pristine town. Friendly folk, cosy coffee and curio shops and top quaint eateries. An ideal place to take a break from umpteen road stoppages and terror trucks. Until recently, that is.The town joined the queue of protesters, this time motived by some emotive local council issue. And not unlike protests this one was coupled with violence and - Read more...

The principal of a prominent local school gave boys in Grade 1 a final written warning for fighting on the playground during break. It started quite innocently as a game of chase. At some point the boy being pursued stopped. He turned and slapped his pursuer. This was the end of the game. Two other boys joined in to “lend a hand” in the retaliation. Positioning himself on top of his buddy being held down by the other two boys, the boy giving - Read more...

The fires started two weeks ago, Knysna has been scorched, fires are under control now and life must go on.But how? And when will normality return? I only had to evacuate my house and was blessed that it did not burn, but the desperate stories that we all hear as journalists at the Knysna-Plett Herald, keep coming. In last week's dedicated 48 pages we devoted as much space we could to the damage, to people stories, to the fires.This week, again, - Read more...

I don’t want to write about the recent Knysna fires (7 June 2017). Everyone is writing about the fires. So here’s me not writing about the fires.  The last 3 weeks of my life revolved around the fires in Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and pretty much all over the Garden Route. If you haven’t heard by now, it was the firestorm of the century. Some even called it the end of the world…Do they have any idea how big the world is? The world is not - Read more...
