Dear Mr President,
This letter serves to inform you that we are no longer comfortable with the national soccer team being called Zebras. This comes after the humiliating defeat the team has been experiencing. I mean it is bad enough that we (the real Zebras) are already being preyed on by lions and other predators in the wild, so it adds salt to injury. We are giving you two days notice. Good luck!
General Secretary Pitse ya Naga
WORKING IT OUT
Following the recent tertiary institution graduations, we asked graduates how they are working it out. Although a majority decried being unemployed, some shared what they are doing to keep up with life after school.
Prince-Eggar Koziba Mathumo: I am selling Nzamele and sweets under a thorn tree by the road while my certificate is collecting dust in my room. What can we say? Life must go on.
Ikageng Ngaka: Anyone to do join me in a partnership for a catering business? So far I have registered a business by the name ‘Delicto’s Food Catering’.
MisKay Nowe: Went back to school to do my postgraduate studies.
Mad Ill: I am a graduate and currently employed by UB. God is amazing! People fear praying to him, why? I don’t know. Anyway, good luck to you all.
Masedi Masilo: I am going to apply for goats from the LIMID programme, that is all I can do.
Readers speak out against the fires that ravaged Maun Senior Secondary School classrooms and a HOD’s office:
Lesedi Kopa: It is too sad to hear this. The person behind this should be punished seriously! We are sick and tired of these issues.
Laqueen Masilo: That’s a sad story. Maybe it is time we pray for our students. They have so much anger for everything. I wonder what kind of society members they will become
Bo Mo: We are struggling in Maun Senior. A lot is happening this side, not only the fire issue but a lot of things. This is really affecting us students.
A ruling by a customary court that a jilted women be given back items, underwear included, that she had bought her former lover, lends itself for reader appraisal:
Siyabonga via The Voice Website:
“I wonder if the courts want to tell us that gifts given when people are in a love relationship are loans.
This judgment sets a dangerous precedent. What will happen if men also start to demand gifts they have given to their lovers?
Let us be mindful of the fact that some lovers have built houses, bought cars and groceries for those they are in a relationships with.
Should these groceries be commuted into cash and the men be reimbursed?
I wonder also what law advised this judgment. In any case it is not only men who have spent on their loved ones, women have spent a lot to, not like this one who cries over underwear.
Sometimes when people take certain actions, they should think of their family names.
I know two people with the Lebekwe surname and I also schooled with another with the Poonyane surname. And when I read this story, my mind immediately flashed to them.”
