Let’s talk about the patterns of complicity of parents in alleged paedophilia cases

So I went out searching to see if there a study published somewhere about parents who want to be stars themselves, who then push their children into the star/celebrities’ life, as a mechanism of attaining this fame? Perhaps also of well meaning parents who want the best for their children by “Encouraging” their children into … Continue reading

Executive Presence starts with leadership self awareness

When I work with executives and share the psychological models, my frame is not about wrong behaviour or right behaviour, but about introducing the vocabulary to speak about themselves and create an opportunity for choice. It is always fascinating to watch when some leaders reject the image in the mirror at that time, and sometimes … Continue reading

Trusting Intelligently : Tshwenyane e boya bonthla e a ikilela

A setswana proverb goes : Tshwenyane e boya bonthla e a ikilela. We were having a chat with a friend of mine about this, in the morning and were reflecting on how growing up in certain places hones particular instincts. Growing up in three of the notorious transvaal, now Gauteng townships, I developed sharp instincts … Continue reading

The Clifton sheep on the altar of a South African search for a unified identity

My reading of this Clifton sheep saga says it goes beyond the sheep, it is an unconscious, perhaps even deliberate reclaiming of belonging. It is a telling tale of the unveiling of the post-Mandelian bandages on the psyche of a nation that has never really bought into a borrowed identity. The thing about a rainbow … Continue reading

Be well…

  This life is not for soft people my friends. Take care of your spirit and cultivate resilience, and by that I don’t mean coping by all means, I mean knowing also when to cry and ask for help. Know who you can trust, and learn the wisdom in surrender. And by that I mean … Continue reading

Could your beliefs about money be holding you back?

We live in a world designed around money. And acting like money is not important might perhaps slow you down from getting to your “money doesn’t matter” ideal world. I did this experiment on Saturday last week. I imagined that I don’t have a single cent. And I wanted to go to the mall to … Continue reading


In her passing, Mama Winnie continues to be the exposition of the cruelty of the apartheid system, she is the phenomenon of how apartheid lives iin us even as she leaves this life.
