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.

In response to a recent incident in which he was the victim of police brutality, Cape Town Hip Hop artist K-Nine Die Hond has released a song called 'Fok Die Mapuza' and with its hard-hitting lyrics and dope beat, it is bound to find traction amongst those who have had first-hand experience of being victims of police brutality or who have witnessed an innocent friend or family member being assaulted by police officers.


We know that everybody in a Coloured community knows of someone who was smacked around by a police officer for absolutely nothing.
We also know that blogger Shana Fife sees these assaults as not just a few isolated incidents where police officers became a bit rough with a suspect who was "resisting arrest". 
We asked her for her thoughts on why we have this seemingly widespread problem of some Coloured police officers using unnecessary and disproportionate force when dealing with Coloured citizens who in many cases have not committed any crime at all.

Somtyds wonne 'n man as die hype groot is dat die disappointment maybe nog groter gaan wies...
KROON's new album Steinkopf tot Bontas lives up to the hype.



After their first offering a few years ago, the KROON EP, the duo of Pierre "Mr. DIY" Cloete & Cheslyn "Chella021" Philander, who make up KROON_ZA, took a break from their group while focusing on their individual projects and collaborating with others.
A year and a half ago they started working on this!

The Coloured Vote - Where to?

Written by
It has become a cliché for the Coloured people to say “We were not White enough in the past and now we’re not Black enough”. Coloured people has a voting power which they can leverage to their advantage.

An Insight into My Personal Take on Veganism

Written by

I have been a vegan for 10 straight solid years, admittedly in my embryonic phase as a vegan neophyte I felt my personality tapering towards some kind of a 'Muggy Vegan Ego' with overt displays of a 'Vegan Superior Logic'. As vegans we often believe that our arsenal is fully stocked with the most advanced and inexorable fact salvos detailing why veganism is the surefire path leading to the zenith of humanity, right? Or are we the lackeys of the ultra-processed food industry which has “engineered” an incalculable and never-ending amount of pro-vegan replacement products and spent billions into marketing the hell out of these products over the past few years?

I am compelled to question the political purpose of the recent Netwerk24 article 'Wit Afrikaner dra gene van slawe en Khoisan - studie' (White Afrikaners carry genes of slaves and Khoisan - study).
Ethno-nationalism between South Africa's black and coloured people, in fact ethno-nationalism between all people is growing, along with it discrimination and anti blackness that detracts from the common experience of a shared struggle.
