    BOKAMOSO | 26 August 2016

    Friday, August 26, 2016

    What a time to be alive! In the past three weeks, we have witnessed one of the most radical and important changes our country has seen since 1994. On 3 August 2016, voters put South Africa on a new trajectory. And we reaffirmed that we work as a nation. Our democracy works, and South Africans […]

    Two weeks ago, I visited Mkholombe, an informal settlement of Port Shepstone in Southern KZN. It was distressing. Mkholombe’s eight thousand residents share just three taps. They have not a single toilet, neither flush nor bucket. Sewerage runs down the paths and no formal electricity at all lights the shacks of this abandoned community. Like […]

    Friday, July 29, 2016

      This is make or break. The polls are showing that we are neck-and-neck with the ANC in the big metros of Johannesburg, Tshwane and Nelson Mandela Bay. These are SA’s economic powerhouses. It’s going to be close, but we can win these cities. And if we do, we will turn them around like we […]

    Friday, July 22, 2016

    The ANC is nose-diving. We cannot let South Africa go down with it. It is time to cut loose. This once magnificent party that played a crucial role in bringing about our democracy, is now our greatest liability. Infected by endemic cronyism and corruption, it has lost the capacity and the will to serve the […]

    BOKAMOSO | 8 July 2016

    Friday, July 8, 2016

      The recent clampdown on SABC reporting and news coverage is only the obvious end game of years of political capture of the public broadcaster by the ANC. It was more than a bit rich for the ANC this week to criticise Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s latest news censorship, when it has for years deliberately and systematically […]

    The ANC government has begun the process to acquire a new luxury presidential jet with an estimated price tag of R4 billion, even while our economy shrinks and our jobs crisis skyrockets to 8.9 million adults without work. South Africa simply cannot afford this jet and we have to stop it before it takes off. […]
