I will tell you a story about how, not long ago, I locked eyes with a stranger, a man, and we proceeded to share a brief but intense and revealing moment.

It started with me wanting to make a smoothie. I’m from the school of thought that a smoothie has to have a banana in it. Otherwise, why bother? I hear there is a small tribe of primitive humans who hate bananas. I’m lucky I haven’t run into one.

I wanted to make a smoothie because my eating habits have been deteriorating sharply of late and we ...

She said, “it sounds like abuse to me.”

“Well,” I said, “it didn’t feel like abuse to me. Particularly because I initiated it.”

“But she was older!”

“Yeah, but not that much older. She must have been 18 or 19.” I said. “I was lingering around teenage.”

“Still,” she insisted, “that was abuse.”

I shrugged nonchalantly. “I didn’t feel abused, to be honest.”

“Of course, you were a child.”

“It was an adventure.” I insisted. “An improper adventure.”

She rolled her eyes and said abuse can’t be an adventure.

She was referring to a story I did here many ...

Every parents dream is to see their children marry off and have successful relationships. in the traditional African set up, it was the man who initiates and pays for the dowry. the fact that this custom has not been abolished is a clear sign that it is of great importance and significance. however, like many other practices, it has been faced with gross misconduct and abuse in the recent times.

Dowry is a way of thanks giving and not an investment as viewed by some elderly parents. for the record, i want to say this.... you cannot and can never ...

They met in the corridors of the university. He was like a tanker rolling towards her; his shoulders filled the corridor, his very presence blocking her way. He towered over her like a watchtower. He seemed to radiate magnetism, something that would send little spasms down to your feet if you touched it. Unbeknownst to her, he was in the university’s rugby team which meant he was famous and he had a posse because rugby guys rolled in packs. Although he was famous and everybody knew him (because rugby was a cult, a religion) she didn’t know him. ...

On 8 January in an introductory piece for the Men and Marriage series I wrote about a little spat I had with my best mate in our investment Whatsapp Group. You can read it here. (http://bit.ly/2IproFg ). I was driving past Parklands Police Station at about 11am, headed for a meeting on 3rd Parklands avenue when he called me. He was bemused that I had written about him, that I had mentioned his marriage. “You had no right,” he said. He wasn’t particularly angry, just disappointed. I protested that I didn’t mention his name. “I called you ...

At the final moment, it all boils down to a vital decision: Do you floor the accelerator, continue overtaking the bus and hope to make it back to your lane on time? Or do you brake and abort the now perilous process of overtaking? This is a split second decision, an estimation of speed and risk. Russian roulette. Unless you are drunk, your adrenaline spikes, your heart gallops off, leaving your body through your nose. The oncoming vehicle snarls with its angry horn, maybe even furiously flashing its headlights at you. You are distinctly aware of being suspended in this ...
