  1. Heartbroken about this assault on SA鈥檚 soul. I keep thinking of all the hope for the country all those years ago now with the new flag and the first full and free elections. My prayers are with SAers regaining that hope and trust, and driving it forward. 馃檹

  2. Dear All

    Please forgive my absence and updates.

    Thank you all for prayers and the messages.

    After what seemed like months of turmoil which turned into reality, I decided to share our upheaval with my blogging family and the world. The government has been glossing over the reality and the media sharing selectively, the hardship and sorrow has been real.

    Tata Madiba tried, he would have been full of sorrow, had he been here to see SA bleed.

    Whilst the son shone here in SA, ashes and soot of the damage to infrastructure, covered our land and homes.

    We pray that August brings harmony and unity.

    Always, SA appreciate the prayers.

    Much love
