Freedom of religion

This year the South African Constitution celebrates its 20th year since promulgation by the late President Nelson Mandela. Much will and have been written elsewhere about the brilliance and the shortcomings of the Constitution, writes Chris van Zyl.

Dan groet ons nou

Rubrieke / Columns: 25 November 2016 By Melt van der Spuy

Ons drie professionele pensioenarisse sit nou die ander dag heerlik op my stoep en teug aan ’n kasteeltjie, toe Servaas na Herman se kant kyk sê: “Gaan jy hom sê, of moet ek dit doen?”​

Eksamen skryf is harde bene kou

Rubrieke / Columns: 28 October 2016 By Martie Le Grange

“As ek nog een keer moet hoor ek moet hard leer want dit is vir my eie beswil, gaan ek skree,” ... só het ek telkemale gevoel, veral in matriek. Dié cliché raak afgesaag maar tog hoor skoolkinders dit tot vervelens toe. Kinders moet tog besef dat sy of haar prestasie op akademiese vlak gaan bepaal waar hy of sy hulself eendag gaan bevind.

It is not uncommon to hear government officials publicly refer to their religion. People respond differently when, for example, the Mayor points learners to the sovereignty of God with reference to their studies for matric examinations.​

Dis laag buk vir langeraat!

Rubrieke / Columns: 14 October 2016 By Melt van der Spuy

Dis nou maar een maal so – by ’n kamp­plek gebeur daar altyd iets snaaks. Iets soos iemand wat val en almal lag daaroor. Die arme man breek byna sy nek toe hy die aarde met ’n donderende slag tref en dan is dit nog sommer ’n paar keer bol­lemakiesie slaan ook. En ons lag.

 

The Constitution and your municipality

Rubrieke / Columns: 21 September 2016 By Chris van Zyl

By granting municipalities much more power and responsibilities than was the case before 1994 with the former “local authorities”, the Constitution has done much to bring local government closer to the people of South Africa.​

Democracy is not about the politicians

Rubrieke / Columns: 19 August 2016 By Chris van Zyl

It is our constitutional right to vote in the local elections and our duty as citizens of South Africa. We have an interest in the prosperous future of our community. The municipality plays an important role in the community, but it is not the only roleplayer.
