Denver Breda's play 'Rokkie' at Suidoosterfees

Written by
Equally ridiculed and celebrated in our communities for their perceived flamboyance, while also in many straight circles accepted with a bit of confused caution, almost everyone on the Cape Flats knows someone who is stereotypically described as a "Kaapse Moffie" but seldom the stories of transgender persons are told from the point of view of and as the main character in a theatrical play.
The transgender persons in most theatre works are usually cast as secondary characters and many times as comic relief, but the plays usually do not revolve around them.

Jan van Riebeeck - UNPLUGGED

Written by
For many years in our youth under the shadow of Apartheid 6th April was a public holiday called Van Riebeeck’s Day or Founder’s Day... BUT who was the real van Riebeeck?
 Those who place Jan van Riebeeck on a pedestal elevating him to playing a much larger and benevolent role in our past than is factual, and who project him as a fair and blameless man, are often rather ignorant of the bigger picture that make up this man’s life. Few people can present an actual biography of this man and few people have read his detailed journal and his letters from the Cape. In fact his present day supporters are much less honest about what happened, than Jan van Riebeeck himself.
The Traditional and Khoisan Leadership Bill 2015 could give effect to the Western Cape having its own House of Traditional Affairs, which will recognise the Khoisan and their leaders.
The bill is currently before the provincial standing committee on local government in the Western Cape Legislature, with public-participation meetings planned for later this month.
Born in Manenberg on the Cape Flats and raised in Pretoria, Dr Shandré Jansen van Rensburg is the youngest woman ever to have completed her PhD through Unisa.
