Thought for the Day – 16th October 2018

Thought for the Day 16 October 2018 Today I’d like to start my thought with a jingle I learnt as a kid and have never forgotten. It goes like this: “He who knows not and knows that he knows not, he is a child, teach him. He who knows and knows not that he knows, he is asleep, wake him. He who knows not and knows not that he knows not, he is a fool […]


Messages to Government Post 4 – Education

Hello everyone. Here is my new article in the feature “Messages to Government”, I am, today, focusing on a topic which is a real hot button of mine. It is a topic, which often attracts much discussion and argument. And it is very visible at the moment because of South Africa’s widely publicized poor performance in this area.

This leads me to my thought for today: “Public Holidays are a pain in the […]

I don’t expect you to agree with my point of view, but I do expect that you think about it before rejecting it out of hand. It may make you think more […]


Thought for the Day – 2 August 2018

Thought for the Day 2 August 2018 My thought for today is a little random. I was thinking about land redistribution. I believe that it is the right thing to do at a moral level, but I think the idea of land redistribution involves a bigger question. That question is my random thought for today: “For what purpose will the land be used?” Why do I think this question is an important one? First of […]
