Dealing with them Lockdown Blues!

I woke up this morning very weary of Covid-19 and I can’t wait for it to leave our midst. But accepting the situation is the first step to turning reality into an ally rather than the enemy. Talking to people about your feelings, fears and hopes helps. Getting into gratitude exchanges (sharing things you are … Continue reading

The war on racism in the US is a war between LOVE and HATE on behalf of the whole world

There’s something about LOVE that is a super power. But it also is a difficult burden in a world filled with fear. Those who profess to be Christians forget that the foundation of the Christ they profess to follow was LOVE. He was ultimately persecuted on the cross because the fear mongers with a bible … Continue reading

… Of Legacy and black role models and the passing of Ntate Maponya

So I have been reflecting all day on the passing of the old man. Not with regret or lamentation, but with a sense of sobriety especially on the idea of legacy and black role models. Those who know me, know my stance, especially from a sociopolitical perspective as a lense I use when it comes … Continue reading

A reflection on the year that was: The Africa We Want to Live in at the end of a decade

This is my short reflection on the continent as the year that also closes the decade closes. 2019 was the year of the election across the world, an emphasis on climate change and its impact on all of our futures.

Take care of your spirit this holiday season

South Africa needs SAA. It’s a matter of national pride, here’s why…

With the current situation at the SAA, I have seen a lot of reports and opinion pieces written from experts about why we need or don’t need SAA. Most of it though is based on financial rationale mostly, with some operational considerations of course. All combined with a dash of the political and ideological. This … Continue reading

We had Malawians, xhosas, tsongas, bapedi, mozambicans, batswana ba freistata le ba botswana, ma Zimbabwe and other nations I never encountered. … Continue reading

Reflecting on the spiritual work of modern executives

A lot of the challenges that face executives in corporate today are not competence issues but spiritual challenges. And when I speak about spiritual challenges, I am not talking some ethereal emotional boo boo, but the essence of contribution that we all are born with as a gift/contribution to mother earth, as part of a … Continue reading
