Weekend WOW Factor : Family - ft music byTekno ft Wizkid - Mama

Happy birthday to my bro , born 11/11, so his birthday tends to be marked by a minute's silence..
So I get in early with the best wishes, and wrap up late.

Hope you had a great day bro.

Today's post really is a thought about family, or families

It's easy to get wrapped up in what we consider to be a family and in thinking we all have the same upbringing. Yet families look and are often very different. For some family time is the best time , whereas for others, the best time is time away from family.

I wonder about how much we've changed and if we have really changed at all.. and in truth.. I don't think we've changed much at all.. just got older and wiser in parts and not in others.

Like all close relationships it's accepting the differences, and allowing a person to grow and make choices for themselves that you may not make for yourself but offering love and guidance anyway.
We try anyway

It's quite funny really , that you need a licence to have a TV, drive a car, in fact, one must study 1st and only when passing do you get access to the roads, but I was reminded...anyone can be a parent.
.. and our issues are born lol!

I look at my granddaughter and wonder if she's thinking the same things I thought at her age

Simi - Owanbe

Laid back Saturday until evening
I was on my way home last night and was about to miss the night bus but to my surprise the driver stopped and waited.
The previous night I just made it with minutes to spare we he said he had delayed his time because of me

How nice was that?

Ive been able to tick housework off my list today, but i'll be honest, I haven't ventured out, and even doing my hair will have to wait for tomorrow, when i'll have a entire day of indulgence.

I remember when I 1st fell in love with Davido's Aye
Well this track by Simi feels so good, looks so good, Is fun and funny, and I love it!
I can only imagine it will be on our playlists for some time to come

Well done and good job lady

I almost forgot that it's winter here

Nelson's letter to Winnie

Letter from Nelson to Winnie


"Already the months you spent in detention have been a severe test for you, and when you come to the end of the case ,you will have got a deeper understanding of human nature and its frailties and what human beings can do to others once their privileged position is endangered.

When this threat emerges, all the lofty values of western democracy about which we read so much in books is brushed aside. Neither the moral standards of modern civilisation, the teachings of the Christian faith, the universal idea of the common brotherhood of men, nor pure sense of hounour will deter the privileged circles from applying the multitudinous pressures at their disposal on those who fight for human dignity.

Those who are on the front line should be willing and ready to draw the fire onto themselves, in order to inspire their colleagues and make this easier for them. In the battle of ideas the true fighter who strives to free public thinking from the social evils of his age, need never be discouraged if, at once and the same time, he is praised and condemned, honoured and degraded, acclaimed a saint and cursed as an irredeemable sinner...

...Finally , Mhlope, I d wish you to know that you are the pride of my heart, and with you by my side , I always feel I am part of an invincible force that is ready to win new worlds.

I am confident that, however dark and difficult times might seem to be now, one day you will be free and able to see the beautiful birds and lovely fields of our country, bathe in its marvellous sunshine and breathe its sweet air. you will again see the picturesque scenery of the land of Faku where your childhood was spent, and the kingdom of Ngubengcuka where the ruins of your own kraal are to be found.

I miss you badly! Tons and tons of love and a million kisses.."

Weekend WOW Factor: Statues and Liberties. Ft music by Mafikizolo ft Yemi Alade – O Fana Nawe

What is President Jacob Zuma doing to end the xenophobic attacks against Nigerian's in South Africa? [click]

Not enough.. if anything at all
What is President Buhari doing to protect his people?
Answer.. not enough.. if anything at all

..so... why has a large statue of president Zuma been erected in Nigeria's Imo State?

he has even been honoured with a road being named after him..

An insensitive act, or honour among thieves...
Can you imagine....
What confusion.
Our leaders have a very different idea of what it means to truly lead their people, to protect, and to serve.
There is an astronomical amount of riches circulating among Presidents and senators, governors et al.. whilst the 'people' .. are expected to be proud and loyal flag waving citizens, even though in many cases their basic needs, . needs (which should be provided by the state) go unmet

Yes whist it will always be debated what the state should or should be responsible for, the reality is that these are , supposedly democratic socialist countries
In truth, like many countries they operate a mixed economy system, but capitalism remains the preferred choice of our leaders.
Many have rebranded capitalism as straight up corruption..
Yes, corruption operates as an economic system

The system is maintained by an overzealous rule of law, or in some cases simply put...no rule of law

Anyway, I digress..
Given South Africa's' history you would think they would know better...
..clearly, many do not
What an utter liberty

As Jacob Zuma continues to sour the reputation of the ANC , and the people of South Africa 'forget' their struggle for freedom from under the wicked state of Apartheid, it remains a very long walk indeed, before the ideas of panafricasim are realised..
Is this the legacy of Mandela?

How long before the people of Imo State tear down that stupid statue of Zuma.. and would they be wrong to do so..?

Buhari is too quiet on these matters, lord knows he hasn't had it easy of late, but I do wonder why he allows some of the things he allows

State Governor Rochas Okorocha

'hmmm .. perhaps the statue was a bad idea..'

'hmm perhaps if I dance they'll keep quiet about it...'
