Ek kry die laaste ruk baie fanmail om te vra of ‘coloured influencers’ goed met mekaar or die weg kom. Dan was ek ook gevra oor hoe groot die kompetisie of druk onder mekaar is, en oor die juicy-ness van backstabbing, en presies hoé popularity onder ons werk.

 

Maar laat ons eers die probleem met die concept rondom ‘being coloured’ en being 'an influencer' aanspreek. Dr Diana Ferrus som almal in Suid-Afrika in haar werke die beste op, deur te sê; ons is ‘gemeng’. So, indien Verwoerd of Botha met hul onvoltooide grade en ‘missing thesis chapters’ genot gevind het om Suid-Afrikaners te klassifiseer is dit op hulle. It is none of my business. That is why I'm here, and they are not. And I thank you.

Two people were killed and five injured, including an 8-year-old girl, in three shooting incidents in Hanover Park on Thursday.

Western Cape police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said all three incidents took place on Thursday morning, hours apart from each other.
"A 23-year-old man was shot and wounded at the bus terminus in Hanover Park at 05:15 by an unknown suspect who fled the scene," Traut said.
