Thanks to David Fisher for pointing me to this brilliant article by Barney Mthombothi.
I urge all South-Africans – in or out of the country – to read this. You have to make your own judgements on this, but I found it encouraging. To hear Barney Mthombothi, a black author, uttering these words makes me feel less isolated in my own country.
David Fisher from Wozafriday also blogged about this here.
He has a fantastic no-nonsense, staight talking approach – I wish it would rub off on the politicians.
You should check out this guy’s credentials – he is not just your average newsman. Barney for President – or even better, let’s clone him!
I have to agree. He is a little sunshine in a pretty dark political arena.
I did not look at his credentials, and wonder if was educated outside SA? He is definately not alone and I am sure he’s got support from the Black, White and other comunities in SA.
Good link Attie – I Would have missed it if you did not post it.
I like Barney as well. Only if some of his articles were accessible to a lot of SA’s…
A lot of his articles seem to be responding to what I would like to hear.
Big up Barney Mthombothi you are the man
