the winds of change

It was in February 1960 that British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan delivered his historic “Winds of Change” address to the Parliament of apartheid South Africa. The speech was the clearest declaration of intent on the part of the British government that it was ready to loosen its iron hold on African nations which it had conquered as part of its vast empire. It was a time when many African nations had begun to rise up against the colonial master in a determined push for freedom and the right to self-determination. In his speech, Macmillan spoke of “the winds of change blowing through the continent [Africa]”. Not only did the apartheid government ignore Macmillan’s unsolicited advice, but it held out for another 30 years.Now, in 2018 SA, a wind of…

how to build a fortune

Whoever said that money isn’t important simply didn’t have any. Money is as important as oxygen.For many years, I was broke in mind, empty in pocket and frustrated in my heart. Money flowed through my hands like water from a tap.One day, that all changed. I picked up The Parable of Dollars: Proven Strategies of Financial Success (Success Power) by Sam Adeyemi, who’s a teacher based in Lagos, Nigeria, and his book changed my life. I’m passing on five critical principles that will make money work for you instead of you working for it. 1. What you don’t see, you don’t spend. Money will come into your life, but if you don’t give it an assignment before it hits your pocket, it will evaporate into thin air. Set aside…

the monopoly menace

Lukhanyo Vangqa is a writer and analyst. He’s also the founder and convenor of the Technical & Vocational Education & Training (TVET) Debate Championships. (GALLOIMAGES/GETTY IMAGES/ALAMY) The free market system is predicated on the principle of the free movement of goods and services in the marketplace, unconstrained by any superstructure. However, the entrenchment of monopoly capital –particularly white capital – in the South African context has barred the gates of industry and economic opportunity to many entrepreneurs and precluded them from competing fairly in the marketplace.To illustrate this point, I remind readers of the destruction to entrepreneurship that was caused by the arrival of big monopoly retailers in the South African township market. Prior to that, retail in the townships was characterised by a multitude of small butcheries, supermarkets…

making stories relevant for africans

(GALLOIMAGES/GETTYIMAGES/ALAMY) Multi-award-winning creative Neo Mashigo is the Chief Creative Officer of the M&C Saatchi SA Group. While advertisers do get it right occasionally, it’s still very hit-and-miss, with the majority of campaigns continuing to depict a very stereotypical and traditional view of consumers. This means they’re missing out on opportunities to truly engage with people through authentic storytelling.Think of the number of breakfast cereal ads depicting a so-called “typical” nuclear family including Mom, Dad and the requisite two kids. Really, is that the best we can do? How many families actually eat breakfast that way? Statistically, this so-called nuclear family includes only a minority of consumers and omits the single-parent families, the older child tasked with ensuring that younger siblings eat breakfast before being bundled off to school because the…
