New Lands Secretary must cancel unlawful SABL leases
Hagen ‘market taxis’ offer an important lesson to our country

My father’s advice


An entry in the 2015 Rivers Award
for Writing on Peace & Harmony

So must I speak
Proudly of an old sailor
Who voyages the thick
And thin and knows the secrets to fail

On his vessel
He carefully said, before you cruise
Be sure your bearings and compass are assembled
They will guide and direct your course

Fear not the raging ocean
Without it you wouldn't be a man
A beautiful island will distract your mission
Just like a violent storm

But be sober strong
For a sunny day is ahead
The trade winds may cause a torque
Rely on your compass head

For your mission is never over
Until it’s over
