Igniting the Sleeping Giant and Unleashing Human Potential

Given the challenges men face today in South Africa and the world, this topic is more purposeful, relevant and urgent. MEN have a greater responsibility. Men hold positions of power and have a bigger influence. We are leaders in many respects and we have an obligation to lead and guide society. Today many respectable men […]

My Favourate Top 50 Quotations from Llama Confessions

Poverty retards and undermines people’s capacity to think, to learn and to grow. The scourge of poverty works against the rights of the poor and their dignity. Sunlight has become comparable to truthfulness and faithfulness. Many people are sincere, but less faithful, at least to themselves. In life, three types of hunger exist: sexual hunger, […]

Our youth is captured/consumed by popular things: materialism, substance abuse, sex and also social media. Connectivity has made it possible for all of us to reach out to other people across […]

The National road (N1) between Johannesburg and Cape Town is a journey less travelled. Flying has become a norm. I don’t have a problem with flying, […]
