“It was a job you know? Wouldn’t you have done yours had it been yours?” He asked with his old redishly staunch eyes sharply glaring at me. Of course I would have done my job, I just did not want to give him more ammunition and approval so as to say what he did was right.

Sex

Sex

Ok, I am going to be frank in this piece. If you are not accustomed to hearing a woman speaking frankly about sex, then I suggest you return to your preferred social media and 1920. Culture Review is probably not for you anyway. Alright? Good!

White Wedding Se Voet

White Wedding Se Voet

It’s a travesty that black people in some quarters don’t regard you as being married until you’ve had a “white wedding”.

Colonial administrators promptly instituted the eradication of African culture by introducing Christianity and subjugating African people socially, politically, culturally, economically and religiously.

Troubled Man

Troubled Man

The “broken man” speech may come to mind when considering Maimane’s oratory: “For you, Honourable President are not an honourable man. You are a broken man, presiding over a broken society”. Zuma’s retort mocked Maimane’s passionate elegy and the phrase “thixo wase George Goch” has since become a catch phrase in reference to comically astounding matters.
