Deja vu as the guns of the powerful slay the colonised

Deja vu as the guns of the powerful slay the colonised

The evidence presented by Mr X to the Farlam Commission last week was meant to strengthen the case of the state, which argues that the police acted in self-defence and the striking workers were the aggressors at Marikana on August 2012.The argument that the state is trying to make is that the striking miners on the hill were so stoked up on muti that they were virtual zombies, performing random acts of aggression on remote control. This is an absurd argument. Anyone who watched the Marikana footage knows that these workers were mowed down in cold blood with live ammunition and then chased into the hills, where they were picked off by snipers.

Consider these two facts:First, most of the world’s finest universities are significant drivers of economic growth, both locally and regionally. It is therefore ironic that none of these schools make economic impact a key part of their visions. That, it would seem, emerges indirectly from a focus on excellence in scholarship, the core business of any university. Second, the finest universities are situated in the world ’s most competitive, beautiful cities that are magnets for the best and most creative professionals, including academics and students.

Long live EL city centre

Long live EL city centre

The tide is turning. Slowly capital is coming back to our city centres. Significant investments and renewal are taking place in Johannesburg – and those who have visited Port Elizabeth recently will have seen the amazing things happening in the suburb, Central. But while many city centres are starting to turn the corner, and are experiencing genuine “urban renewal”, the East London CBD is still in free-fall. It is lookingworse than ever. It has been neglected for so long that few even know how bad things have become. Even fewer think that there is any way back from the abyss. I want to suggest that we should perhaps think again.
