The Flight Attendant | A very personal review

Watching The Flight Attendant at night is really testing my capacity to overcome certain fears. I hate gruesome scenes with a passion. I find myself thinking of Kelly or rather Cassie as Penny (TBBT) 😂. I also find validation, oddly enough in the way she and Davey (her brother) remember their childhood totally differently. IContinue reading “The Flight Attendant | A very personal review”

The Human Side of Minister Lindiwe Sisulu| #PhoenixMassacre

This is by no means a blue ticking of the wonderful work and powerful voice of EFF’s Mam’Khawula. I praised her on Twitter, in case you wish to call me out.

Apartheid | a successful project

I dare anyone to tell me that apartheid wasn’t a successful project!We have black people praising Pik Botha in 2021, right here in South Africa. Black people not giving a thought to the black lives that have been lost unnecessarily in the past week, just because they’re of a different tribe.We have the nerve toContinue reading “Apartheid | a successful project”
