Will Our Children (Still) Be Able to Read?

Will Our Children (Still) Be Able to Read?

To abolish illiteracy and maintain a dignified life

The world is adrift in the tides of hunger and desolation. It isn't easy to think about education, or anything else when your children cannot eat. And yet, the sharp attack on education during this past decade forces us to consider the future that young people will inherit.

'Ubuntu' told by Pres. Nelson Mandela

UbuntuFM Africa | President Nelson Mandela

One of the reasons UbuntuFM was established

A traveler through a country would stop at a village and he didn't have to ask for food or for water. Once he stops, the people give him food, entertain him. That is one aspect of Ubuntu, but it will have various aspects. Ubuntu does not mean that people should not enrich themselves.

I Am A Woman

Suthukazi Arosi | I Am A Woman - So What?

I AM A WOMAN, So what?

When I'm quiet, millions of things run through my mind. When I stare at you, I wonder why I love you so much, in spite of being taken for granted. I am like salt. My presence is never remembered, but my absence makes all things tasteless

The race to the bottom in terms of economics is one for attaining the lowest cost, whilst retaining or increasing the highest margin of profit. Who is profiting from this race and at whose expense? Is it sustainable? What forces drive the race?

‘Biafra’ All Over Again

‘Biafra’ All Over Again

History is about to repeat itself

Between 1966 and 1970, Biafra was all over the news media for those old enough to remember. What was called a war, was in fact a genocide comparable to the Rwandan genocide of the 90’s or worse. Let's fast forward from 1966 to Sept 12, 2017.
