South Africa’s high unemployment rate, poverty, social economic exclusion, spatial challenges marginalising the poor, corruption, racial divisions, has finally caught up with us.

The Press Release is published verbatim below.
The family of Shaleen Surtie Richards has this morning sadly confirmed the news of her passing.
The 66 year old actress born on 7 May 1955 was well-known and loved for her role as Nenna aka Ester Willemse on the long-running soapie eGoli.
It was however playing Fiela Komoetie in the 1988 film adaptation of the Dalene Mathee Afrikaans novel Fiela se Kind that the Legendary Actress first rose to fame.


A veteran of a long list of Films, TV Series and Stage Productions and receiving numerous awards along the the way, Shaleen Surtie Richards was most recently cast in the role of the amusingly annoying but sweet grandmother in the Quanita Adams film SWIRL about 'Coloured women and their hair'.
As can be seen in tributes on social media, Shaleen Surtie Richards has certainly been an inspiration to many of the generation of actors who followed in her footsteps.
Shaleen was clearly adored by many across different generations and the South African Entertainment Landscape will forever continue to be influenced by the sheer passion she has put into ensuring the credibility of each and every role she has ever played.
Our sincerest condolences to the family, friends, colleagues and the fans of this wonderful star.

A few weeks ago I got a call from an unfamiliar number. I pick up because I don't hear from people that much anymore. I even answer debt collector calls these days.

Anyway, this person, Janice, is looking for a 'Muhammed'. I tell her she has the wrong number. But now, as I'm about to drop the call, this Janice person says, 'I know it's you Muhammed. Stop acting and give me my money'.
