On Friday I became a trending topic on Twitter. Nothing unusual here – I’ve been used to this since social media became a big deal in South Africa, but it’s still never welcome news. Someone posted a tweet saying that when she and her friends were 15 (she’s 27 now), she met me at a nightclub and I bought them drinks and propositioned them. Needless to say it took off on Twitter and other fallacious titbits piled up about everything I’ve probably never done, including that I should be de-platformed for among other things, “He disputed the US election result”… as though I was Donald Trump himself and responsible for the insurrection on Capitol Hill.

11.02.21 Pt 2 - When your economy shrinks beyond that of Pakistan's, you need to question what has happened to put you in that position. The more Tito tweets, the more he looks like a twit. It seems as though the Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane couldn't guard a piggy bank with an AK-47... how concerned should South Africans be?

Are we taking too long to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine? With a declining economy, how much worse must it get before it gets better? Maybe it’s time to admit that many South Africans might be addicted to the ANC.
