Some months back, I was forwarded a WhatsApp message about a lady who was explaining why she was relocating from Cape Town to Johannedburg. You can find the article here It was around the same time I was starting to make biweekly trips to Cape Town....

I literally peed myself. A mundane act of going to the bathroom in the middle of the night turned out to be an adventure not to be repeated. Not since the Oscar case has the bathroom been a place of such drama. Getting older seems to slow...

Black Tax is a real tax and as such it should be tax deductible. I propose that anyone who pays for school fees, medical aid or any sundry expenses including pocket money for an uncle, niece, nephew, brother or sister should be able to claim deductions...

Let me start off by apologizing for the glib click bait title of this blog. Let me apologize to the 180 families who lost a loved one to this preventable bacteria. 78 of the 180 fatalities are children. In most countries, this would be a...

Last month I watched Black Panther with my son. Awesome movie. We watched it on IMAX and it more than lived up to the hype. After the movie I asked my son who was the best super hero; Iron Man, Spiderman, Superman or Batman. He...

Last year, Dove was in hot water for featuring the ad where a black woman becomes white after using Dove. This ad was not a creative mishap. A mishap like this simply does not happen at a multinational the size of Unilever. They have more...

The direct translation for this summer's biggest song, Omunye Phez' Komunye is "state capture". A big announcement was made yesterday by President Jacob Zuma that he has appointed a Judge to head up the investigation into state capture. Well...

Dr. Nkosazana Zuma was beaten by an entrepreneur for presidency 2017. Hillary Clinton was beaten by an entrepreneur for presidency in 2016. There are three reasons why these two female candidates, who ran for the most powerful office in their respective continents, lost. The first reason is...

It's no surprise that society is riddled with double standards! The are certain cultural norms that make no sense in today's time like for example paying lobola. Or even perhaps buying a wedding ring. It is interesting to note that certain societal norms (that I...

In my blog about vernacular in private schools I was wrong. I had it all wrong. This blog is my highest read blog, ironically followed by my dating after divorce blogs. I was blown away at the speed at which the dating after divorce blogs...

This weekend a very terrible, terrible thing happened! Oh my word, I can't believe that I am going to force myself to recount it. It was around 4pm when it happened. My son and I were home. When all of a sudden, out of nowhere...

I was inundated by comments from my Dating after divorce blog yesterday. I was asked to give more insights about my experience. The most important thing you need to be ready for as a entrepreneur is change! You must be willing to embrace change. This...

There is a saying; better the devil you know. This I'm convinced was written by a guy dating after a divorce. In fact it reminds reminds me of what someone once told me when I went through my divorce; "it's cheaper to keep her!" Both...

This year marked my tenth year as entrepreneur. I have seen the good and the bad of entrepreneurship. It's been one heck of a journey. It's hard to believe it has already been 10 years! Steve Jobs said it best when he said you should...

So I am driving home from my son's play. He was playing Tom Sawyer. He nailed it, might I add! My voice was hoarse from shouting who's your daddy to him, a ritual we share every time he does good! He responds at the top...

Miles, I was inspired by your Blog( http://www.mileskubheka.com/vernacular-private-schools/) to have an event at my daughters pre-school during this heritage day month. After a few discussions with the Headmistress and Teachers they obliged and where thrilled and kindly allowed me to fit this into their curriculum. After...

Today is my birthday. I share it with the anniversary of Steve Biko's death. It's always been a bitter sweet day for me. Of all the struggle icons Biko has always resonated with me. I think mostly because I believe the biggest challenge one can ever...

There is a saying that says it's not how good you start but how well you finish. I used to say this all the time to my son when he used to race go carts. He started when he was four years old. I guess it's...

Dear white people, you know that smile you give when you walk past a black person in a corridor or when they walk into a lift? I'm talking about that uncomfortable feigned thin lip smile. Dear white people I hate to be the one to tell...
