The country’s professional leeches have been rolling out their charm offensives over the past few months.
If you vote for Ramaphosa, believing he is a change agent, you are in denial. Much like ANC supporters.
That this election is vital – a watershed, in fact – for a country hijacked by criminals in every facet of its infrastructure, is obvious.

Columns We live it, Mr President, apologies for the train delay

We commuters apologise for the delay and hope that, when you have time, you’ll come again and experience something different.

Columns The State Security Agency urgently needs an overhaul

Our intelligence agency’s preoccupation has been meddling in politics, rather than fighting crime, stabilising the country and staving off external threats.
