Featured: An Nur on SABC 3

The thing about feature interviews, is that it happens so long before it gets aired or published that I actually forget about them. Earlier this year (or was it last year?), the An Nur team contacted me for a feature interview at my place of work. I dreaded the interview because I hate being interviewed while colleagues watch. I tried…

Featured: Interview with Tim Modise

After an article I wrote on the NPA and the Gupta email Saga ( you can read it HERE), veteran broadcaster Tim Modise interviewed me on the Modise Network.

Smoke and Mirrors: Part nine

Someone once said to me ‘we all have our vices’ and asked me what mine was. I didn’t have a vice. I didn’t agree that everyone should have a vice. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke and I don’t party. I did not need any of those vices to cope. I don’t. Yes, life overwhelms me at times but I…

Unless there is a type of food…

Smoke and mirrors: part three

My eyeballs feel like it’s been poked by hundred nails. I am so sleep deprived that I don’t know how I am going to manage the day. I don’t have any coffee at home but I hope to get in early enough at work for a strong brew. They only make one pot of coffee a day and once its…

Smoke and mirrors: part two

Imran laid a bombshell at my door: he had been cheating on me for as long as we were together. It turned out, he was dating a Hindu girl since high school and was blindly in love since. Ever since they started dating, both their parents were dead set against the relationship. She was a year older than him and…
