here’s to 2018!

I BELIEVE THAT AS A NATION, WE HAVE REASON TO BE BUOYANT ABOUT THE COMING MONTHS. WE HAVE A REAL OPPORTUNITY TO BEGIN A NEW LEAF AND START HEADING BACK DOWN A VIRTUOUS PATH ON WHICH THE NATIONAL INTEREST TRUMPS ANY PERSONAL ASPIRATIONS. Just like that, another year’s gone. The one ahead presents us with the opportunity to hit the “reset” button and explore new beginnings. But, before doing so, it’s often useful to look back.Last year, in my January Editor’s note, I wrote:“I believe that as a nation, we have reason to be buoyant about the coming months. We have a real opportunity to begin a new leaf and start heading back down a virtuous path on which the national interest trumps any personal aspirations. We have a…

EVERYMAN’S VR According to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, VR is about to become as commonplace as the smartphone.

it’s the system that matters

GALLO IMAGES/GETTY IMAGES/ISTOCKPHOTO/ALAMY THE DANGER OF THIS TYPE OF MINDSET IS THAT IT PLACES TOO MUCH CORRECTIVE ABILITY AND CAPACITY ON THE NEW LEADER. Two political events this past December highlighted the saviour-leader mentality very clearly. One was the forced resignation of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and the other was the election of a new ANC President who could well become the country’s next head of state.In these examples, leader-heroes have become anti-heroes whose inept governance, corruption, inflexibility and arrogance inflamed their respective countries’ desires to see them removed as urgently as possible, regardless of whether this was constitutionally done. Mugabe, for example, had to go immediately. It mattered not that he’d been democratically elected and that the next elections were scheduled for this year: the frustration and despair…

bottling success

(PHOTOGRAPHER: ZUZI SEOKA. GROOMING: LINDIWE SOKHULU) “Bushjoy was about making difference – selling something that represented black excellence and African pride.” Like most self-made business people who’ve had a rough upbringing, I sold sweets at school and ice-cream on Saturdays to make ends meet. The difference with me, however, was that I chose to do it. I loved money and the kind of independence and entrepreneurial flair it brought with it.Immediately after matriculating, I enrolled for a course in mechanical engineering at the Pretoria Technikon [now the Tshwane University of Technology]. While I was still looking for a job, I ran a tuckshop and also registered a construction company. I remember making sorghum beer, mayonnaise, mageu and iced tea with lemon. That was where I developed my passion…
