Invictus trailer

Hollywood seems to be loving the tip of Africa. It’s great to see yet another high quality movie made about South Africa (I was all over District 9). I’ve been waiting to see this movie ever since Matt Damon wizzed passed me in Hout Bay, about to tackle Suikerbossie on the Cape Argus Cycle tour […]

Opening speech @ #SiliconCape

It’s a funny thing. I don’t know what it is about Cape Town, but politics seem very far away — even the big politics. In Joburg I’d bang my head on the door at every bad ripple in the political landscape, but somehow, in someway, it doesn’t get to you as much down south in […]
