The sentence it's own irony
Cause it's TWEEDE Nuwejaar for a reason you know
Check your his- and her-story
But keep not noticing how the City side-lines the majority culture
If disregard and exploitation had a face
Cape Town would be that vulture
It's going to be shown in the Botanical Gardens. Apparently you get Angles in Botany too. It's called an Axil.
Something to do with the angle at which a new branch grows from another branch...
Anyways... That probably doesn't even fit into any of this...
What I'm really excited about is that I will finally get to see the mystical Hypotenuse Plant growing in its natural state.
Clearly the onus for the Reconciliation we are expected to celebrate on Reconciliation Day is solely placed on the aggrieved with a far much higher expectation of Forgiveness but there is very little to almost absolutely no speak of Repentance.
Something is missing.
Can we honestly expect them to forgive us if we are not truly remorseful and contrite?
Yes often people actually do forgive us when we have wronged them, but it does not mean we can expect them to continue treating us as if we did nothing wrong. If we are not truly contrite, can we honestly say that there was reconciliation between us?
It requires a lot of effort from both the aggrieved to be accommodating and the aggressor to show regret and make willing sacrifices towards recompense.
It is the stuff that Real Reconciliation is made of.
I have decided to provide some help to you, our dear visitors from all over, as you move around our city, attempting to understand the unique language which is spoken in our neck of the woods, as well as for when you try to get to grips with some of our cultural nuances.
Very few of today's top DJ's who have all of their sight would be able to perform if they were to be blindfolded.
DJ Eezo who is completely blind is more than just adequate behind the decks.
I was huddled at the bus stop, partially sheltered from the South-Easter’s icy fingers, as it fiddled at the crevice of my coat and pinched my cheeks playfully. Ominous clouds hung overhead, heavily pregnant with rain, an imminent birth soon to be unburdened from the heavens.
He appeared as if from nowhere, his expression as innocent as his clothes were threadbare. Dirty blue jeans, scuffed sneakers and a cotton sweater with the buttons done up wrong were his body’s only defence against the elements.
A new documentary about how harmful industrial fishing is destroying fishing communities in the Western Cape took the runner-up award at the International 1-Minute Film Festival in Cape Town last week.
The online documentary by Greenpeace, called GUTTED: THE FIGHT OF KALK BAY FISHERS, focuses on the Kalk Bay fishing community. It explores how laws favouring the industrialisation of fishing in South Africa have not only changed the socioeconomic situation of these communities, but also, the once vibrant and community-centric culture.
When Eerste River mom Carmen Snyders and her son Carter (5) visited Zebro's in Zevenwacht Mall on Sunday to buy him his favourite hot chips, she ended up leaving the fast food outlet in tears.
We spoke to both Carmen Snyders and a representative of Zebros about the incident which has taken social media by storm.
Of course we at Bruinou.com are always eager to get y'all involved when someone like Danya Goosen runs a great initiatives like this.
We asked Danya to explain the main aim and details of her Care Pack Drive which she now hosts as an annual event.
Dis maklik om een van die grootste redes agter Arendsvlei se sukses uit te figure... Die charachters oor wie dit gaan praat soos die mense wie hulle supposed is om uit te beeld... Mense aan wie die kykers kan relate.
Beatrice Abrahams en die leerders van Hoërskool Arendsvlei is gereed om nog drama na die kassie te bring, ná kykNET & kie se eerste Afrikaanse telenovela, Arendsvlei, verleng is vir nog ’n seisoen.
When you're 13 years old and already have a career as a radio presenter along with a number of other achievements, it is quite understandable that you can't really pinpoint exactly what you would like to do as an adult... That is the case for Linnay Jooste, and though she for now only has some idea of which direction she wants to go into, she already has a great head-start as the youngest radio presenter on Eldos FM in Eldorado Park Johannesburg.
We got in touch with Linnay and her parents Buddy & Keenen Jooste to find out more about this dynamic young lady.
The Homeless targeted - for what they don’t have.
Imagine being homeless and jobless with your family in a country which guarantees you, through its Constitution, the right to dignity, food, shelter, security, education etc and you can’t get access to any of these inalienable right. Your continued poverty is a nuisance to the affluence of the bureaucracy who is supposed to provide you with services to mitigate your poverty. You can’t afford education. You can’t afford housing. You can’t afford food to feed your family. You are on Council housing lists for decades. You migrated to the Western Cape and you can’t access any services.
And then imagine that same government punishes you for not being able to access those inalienable rights.
