 #OpRekord @Beeld_Nuus @Netwerk24 vandag: UJ Rektor, Ihron Rensburg. FOTO: @CornelvHeerden "Ek is al op 16 vir die eerste keer tronk toe, in 1976, omdat ek ’n jeugleier in die struggle was.” Tóg het hy uiteindelik onderhoofseun geword by Paterson High School in New Brighton. Daar waar Port Elizabeth se Nelson Mandelabaai-stadion nou staan. “In die bruin gemeenskap was daar die Engelse kinders in ons skool wat uit middelklasfamilies gekom het met onderwysers en dominees vir ouers. Ek was een van die Afrikaanse werkersklas-outjies. My pa het by ’n skoenfabriek gewerk en oor naweke het ons hom gehelp groente verkoop in ons buurt.” Hy het aan die einde van matriek met ’n skok besef dat net een familielid toe al verder as st.8 geleer het. “Klasgeld by die Rhodes-Universiteit was daai tyd R700 per jaar, koshuisgelde nog R750 en boeke so R500 – geld wat nie ek óf my familie gehad het nie.” Toe samel die onderwysers by sy skool vir hom R150 in. “Ek’t ook ’n R300-beurs by Rhodes gekry vir my skoolpunte, so dit het my by R450 gebring. Toe reël my pa vir my vakansiewerk by die fabriek, waar ek 60 uur per week ingesit het oor die Desember- en Junie-vakansie.” Teen die einde van die vakansie het hy nog R700 nodig gehad, sonder ’n oplossing in sig. Ten spyte daarvan het hy die eerste semester van sy aptekerswese-graad met onderskeidings deurgekom, by ’n Engelse universiteit nogal. "Op die laaste dag van die vakansie het die fabriek se mense na my toe gekom met ’n tjek vir die res, uitgemaak aan die universiteit.” Sy stem raak dik en hy sluk diep, glimlag dan warm."  Best we don't go into the "Before". Suffice to say @kay_khonji outdid herself again tonight  Catch a re-run of @SS_TMO on @SuperSportTV if you missed the live show!

My Mauritius Tips

Feb 17th, 2016 Uncategorized 4 min read

Last year, we got to discover the magic of a ski holiday with Club Med and in 2016 we changed it up, by opting for a beach escape in stead. I’d like to let you in on why we will totally do it again, how to know if this is something you’d enjoy & what to do when you’re planning a visit. Oh, and my dear husband made a…

For us, 2015 is only ending now. You know how Chinese New Year is only on February 8th? And in Ethiopia today is the 14th day, of the 5th month of 2008? (not kidding #JulianCalendar) Well, since Richard & I worked over Christmas & New Year,  we’re taking our end of year holiday this week & starting 2016 on February 1st. This is, of course, also…

Behind The Scenes On My Latest ‘rooi rose’ Cover Shoot

Sep 28th, 2015 Uncategorized 2 min read

I’m all about spreading the word. Hard news, rugby news or the latest meme – my job is literally to NOT shut up. To keep communicating. To find content and tell people about it. So, when a magazine approaches someone like me with great news, on the condition that I keep it a secret, that’s basically torture. They actually make you sign a contract and everything! Nonetheless, I…

Ek voel vreeslik cool in my lekker groen & goud #LiefdeWen hoodie hier in Ingeland. Behalwe vir ‘n Bok trui, is dit seker die ultimate ding om op straat te dra. Sodra mense vir jou kyk en begin glimlag, weet jy – dáái is een van ‘ons’. Mense groet sommer uit die bloute of waai, langs die pad. Dis soos om ‘in’ te wees op die…
