This fun, tongue-in-cheek and at times mischievously irreverent new stage experience is presented by the National Theatre of Namibia and promises to not only give us insight into Namibian Khoi-Coloured Culture with a focus on its Drag Community but also draw parallels with South African Khoi-Coloured communities, and not simply from an LGBTQI+ point of view, because the idea is to explore much broader issues of Coloured Identify in Namibia.
Caribbean songstress Judy Boucher has teamed up with Cape Town's very own Afro Ninja DJ Uncle Cal for a remake of her classic hit song Can't Be WIth You Tonight.
Judy Boucher is still a perennial favourite among South African music lovers and audiences since the early 1980's and has for a long time been a regular visitor to our shores, sometimes just for a little holiday but more recently with sold-out shows in Cape Town where she still has a massive fan base who we are sure will love this new take on her classic hit along with all her other fans all around the world.

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.

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.
