Tim, thanks for honest criticism
Max, by email
I want to congratulate you on your brevity. This is with regards to your column “We are the reason Africa hates us with such passion” (City Press, February 7 2016).
This is very true, Timothy Molobi, and it takes courage to say it, as I know most South Africans don’t want criticism – they praise mediocrity.
You gave good examples, and, if you remember, there was another incident involving Danny Jordaan – I think he was contesting some CAF post and was humiliated in Egypt.
There is this arrogance sometimes with we South Africans – we tend to think we are on our own, not belonging to the entire African continent, and this does not resonate well with the other African countries.
I enjoyed your piece, as it is the truth. I thought I should tell you this.
