Happy birth­day, Arch­bishop Des­mond Tutu. En­joy the day with your fam­ily.

Happy birth­day, Arch­bishop Tutu, may God bless you to see many more years. – Jo­lene Losper


In re­sponse to my re­cent SMSes, a se­nior traf­fic man­age­ment of­fi­cial has con­tacted me to say that “pow­er­ful in­ter­ests” which make money from our road car­nage may have de­railed road safety ef­forts and cost thou­sands of lives. I have often won­dered why the huge petrol com­pa­nies and in­sur­ance com­pa­nies do not run cam­paigns de­mand­ing safe speed lim­its and jobs for the ex­tra 100 000 traf­fic po­lice the coun­try needs for its 12 mil­lion ve­hi­cles. – Richard Ben­son, Road Safety Ac­tion Cam­paign

If the SAZF is a dis­cred­ited or­gan­i­sa­tion, so is the Pales­tine Sol­i­dar­ity Cam­paign with Terry Craw­ford Browne at the helm. This man con­cocts fan­tasies and spews them out from the top of his head. C Martin would be wise not to com­pare the long and com­plex his­tory of the Mid­dle East to RSA. In­dige­nous is not a word ap­pli­ca­ble to Pales­tini­ans, who are Arabs. Arabs are in­dige­nous to Ara­bia, whereas Is­rael and later Pales­tine had dif­fer­ent peo­ple wan­der­ing through for mil­len­nia.
