Mistaken Identity and 'n Klomp Drama

Can a boy just live a drama-free life? I mean... c'mooooooooooon!

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'.

Whooooaaa!

Targets On Coloured Backs

#JusticeForNathanielJulies and other Coloured Boys With Targets On Their Backs

With the killing of 16 year-old Nathaniel Julies at the hands of police officers, regular Bruinou.com content contributor Angelo C Louw prompts us to take a more critical look at the disproportionately higher occurrences of police brutality that is particularly aimed at Coloured males.


Police gunned a 16-year-old Eldorado Park boy living with Down syndrome with nothing but biscuits in his hand, allegedly because he couldn’t answer them as they interrogated him. Residents say that the officer then dragged him by the neck into the back of a police van, preventing his father from accompanying them to the hospital. When there, police told doctors that he was involved in gang violence.

I write with tears. Today, South Africa has lost a great spiritual leader and his family and loved ones have lost a strong loving force in their lives.
Reverend Leonard Maart was a humble man who raised a beautiful family and was very proud of his heritage and his community.
I’m going to try and not make this little tribuite about me, however, he influenced me greatly 25 years ago (when I first went to South Africa) so I thought this would be a good opportunity to share my experience with Reverend Maart from that time period in South Africa, that space, those emotions, apartheid, understanding Cape Town, etc…

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
