So we're doing Tweede Nuwejaar tomorrow, the 4th of January
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 officially the start of our festive holiday season and there will naturally be an influx of visitors to our beautiful city - visitors from other provinces in our country, as well as ones from beyond our borders. Of course we want everyone to feel welcome.
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.

Send in the Army for what, whom and why???? Is the most appropriate army being sent?

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.

Clifton's Sheep in Wolves' Clothes

Kleurlinge... yes that is the only way I feel like describing these adherents of a false consciousness... Kleurlinge losing their minds over a sheep being slaughtered on a beach which they themselves as people are regularly being bullied to vacate and until a few decades ago were not even allowed the privilege to visit or set foot on.
