It is with tears in my eyes that I write this status update. Comrades and friends, I would like to inform you that international rights for "Memoirs of a Born Free: Reflections on the Rainbow Nation" have been sold to a United States based publishing company, Seven Stories Press. Part of the media statement as released this morning by my publisher, Jacana Media, reads as follows: "Jacana Media is delighted to announce that international rights for Malaika wa Azania’s Memoirs of a Born Free have been sold to New York City-based Seven Stories Press. In making their offer, Dan Simon, publisher at Seven Stories Press, compared Malaika to “a young Steve Biko, someone I have long revered for the directness and clarity and power of his vision and his words.” The Press plans to publish in the US in 2015, and will be seeking further international publishing opportunities in the new year for the young firebrand. Jacana Media congratulate Malaika on this publishing coup..." This is my gift to my mother, Dipuo ...

Blacks here is a simple test you can do at home to quantify just how mentally enslaved you are. If you agree with any of the following you are totally mentally enslaved: * You believe South Afrika belongs to all who live it * You believe in the idea of South Afrka being a Rainbow Nation * You consider Mandela to be an Icon and Hero of the Struggle. A True Liberator * You consider the ANC to be Heroic Liberation Movement * You consider Thabo Mbeki to be a Hero and Giant of Afrika * You do NOT have any sense of ownership of your Stolen Land and Vast Mineral Wealth. Instead you actually see all the White Settler Thieves that currently own our land and mineral resources as the rightful owners. * You think Blacks that want the Land the Land and Mineral Wealth back are lazy. And want everything for free instead of working for it all. * You think Blacks that want our stolen land and mineral resources returned want to Ruin "Our" Economy. * You think you own the car and house you live in for which you are heavily ...
Has The Western World’s Love Affair With South Africa Ended? Ever since that historic emergence of Nelson Mandela from nearly three decades of incarceration, the peaceful transformation into majority rule and the Truth and Reconciliation Hearings, the world has had a Love Affair with South Africa and its People. Mandela –Mania has continued to this day, being seen as representing forgiveness, reconciliation, lasting peace and national unity not seen since the formation of the United Nations after 1945. The adoption of an ultra-liberal Constitution, which provided a promise of a just and humane society was further hope that the post-independent dictatorships and demagogues in post colonial Africa, were a thing of the past and that South Africa was the new hope for a continent fraught with conflicts, political instability, poverty and perennial under-development; hence the Love Affair with the Rainbow Nation since 1994. The road ahead still required attestation that this “experiment” would work; th ...

This is what I saw while I was waiting for Hamish outside his school gate the other day, and it made me so optimistic for the future of our country: a black girl and white girl hugging each other goodbye. Another little black girl, this one physically disabled who obviously finds it difficult to walk up the stairs, holding hands with and chattering happily to her friend, a pretty blonde girl, who was equally animated and helping her - it was very obvious she wanted to, and hadn't been asked (I watched this disabled little girl over the next few days, and she seems really popular, and always chatting happily to someone). Hamish emerged, surrounded by his new friends, black, white, and Indian - he and a black boy had their arms around each other's shoulders. As we walked to the car, a black girl stopped us with "Hamish - how do you do the sticky foot experiment again?" and a white girl from the back of a car "Bye Hamish!". A new child in Hamish's class (Hamish is no longer the newbie!), a black child wi ...

I'd like to recommend a fascinating memoir I'm reading now: Lost and Found in Johannesburg, by Mark Gevisser. He uses his boyhood fascination with maps of the city he grew up in to explain the bizarre physical and social constructs of apartheid. Though this narrative vehicle, he examines his own multi-ethnic Jewish heritage in South Africa, and the various awakenings (sexual and otherwise) that led him to cross many of "the impermeable boundaries that were set around the life of a white suburban boy." It will make you look at your own city or town with fresh eyes, guaranteed. It will also help readers to appreciate how difficult it is for the newly-born "Rainbow Nation" to bridge these boundaries.

Woke up at 3am and couldn't get back to sleep. I was possessed by an idea for a standup comedy routine.involving cross-cultural relationships in SA, a subject in which I have been awarded an honorary PhD from the Babes of the Rainbow Nation. I want to tell people about the real battles I have fought or surrendered to.the real clashes...the negotiations.and the reconciliations I have experienced.between the covers of my bed. It might be X-Rated, certainly PG at the very least.but I must tell my TRC stories. I have immunity I guess, being an Italian in Azania, with my violin case and my music stand. I'm putting a sample of all this on video and posting it on YouTube [but not before I take out a Life Insurance Policy].

KomSit Project Stellenbosch The experience of seeing the colors of the rainbow is something we all can relate to, it often has a magical feel stirring some deep inner emotions and reflections. I hope that this bench can be the place where people of all sorts of different backgrounds and walks of life, can sit down, relax, regain energy, reflect, chat, laugh, share experiences to carry on making this country the most beautiful ‘Rainbow Nation’ in the world!
Poem by Bongiwe Mlangeni Zwo dzhia miningwaha na miningwaha,U rabeLA vhudi-imeli,Namusi rikha mbofololo,Ro di imela The story of apartheid is like a tale of a posterior,We are finally coherent to one another long ago Africa was Asunder,But because of our heroe's determination,We are a united rainbow Nation UbomiImpilo sele iye kwe linye izinga,Kaye ikusasa layo li qhakazile,Sele siyishile iizondo sathabatha uxolo,Be ukhona isiqalekiso phakathi kwe Mzanzi,Kodwa ngoku wonke amanxeba a pholile Because of democracy I have a voice,I am a citizen of my country,I can vote,as I have a choice,E ke ya kgona,ke a bua,ke a tletleba I can choose the dreams I want to follow,I can sleep on a pillow of joy,Because finally I am free,I can climb a tower to success by my dearly democratic life Our faces are glowing with smiles,And now we can stand tall,As we wave our African flags and be proud to say,We are who we are because of what we are,We are Africans.AMANDLA!AWETHU!

I've read a very sensitive article today lovely friends. There's a new crime which South Africans will be informed about very soon. To impregnate a disfigured and hideous lady will be a serious crime and an accused charged with such an offence will be sentenced to life imprisonment. It is revealed by researchers that to impregnate a disfigured lady negatively affect the beauty of our rainbow nation.

rainbow nation and new era,it's seems Dr Mandela only black leader vision,current leaders are not to practical practise.we need to emphasize these issue
27th April 1994, the dawn of a new country with a constitution which guaranteed the right of every individual to self determination and which gave citizenship and a home to millions of dispossessed and marginalised people. Viva ANC, viva Mandela, viva, viva, freedom Friday. (This is for the millions of brave and beautiful members of the rainbow nation) just remember that birth does not come without pain, hang in there, history will cover you all in glory. Peace and love guys, random acts of kindness and tolerance will bring rewards. Viva!
Wishing our beautiful country a happy 20th birthday for Sunday and let us all continue fighting for true democracy for our rainbow nation!
For how long must we beg whites to respect us and our cultural rituals? Is this the rainbow nation Mandela negotiated for?
my dear friends, family, enenmies, loved ones, churchmates, ex friends etc.. let be one thing and stand together for one rainbow nation. DA its not met for whites or supported by other colour, but it a political party that formed by whites in order to bring anti apartheid. lot has heppened in our country which no one is proude of but but time has changed. i don't love DA because of who is rulling or how many supporters are their but because i believe in CHANGE. yes ANC its our democracy party, but that doesnot mean we owe it to our lifes, let vote for Change 7 MAY
Racial conversations with this guy can be funny I tell you, we both refer to white people as whites. I've known him for years yet I've never seen him with a white woman. I remember one scenario at Emperors Palace ngibambe my Mlungu wami and naye abambe u-Dakie wakhe; as always. I promise you Henri Mineo at times does forget that He is ''white''. How far have we come when it come to race and all, are we genuinely a ''rainbow nation''? Would you date or marry a Mlungu? Happy ''Freedom day'' in advanced.
27 April is a remarkable day during which the shakles of bondage were broken,and the new dawn begins,so as the people we shall be cautius of the remarks we make and work towards the unification of this beautiful rainbow nation.

Excited about what is happening in the rainbow nation right now!
Just like the most of us, I, too, get mad when more drama keeps popping out from nowhere in this beautiful land. However, I still believe that's what keep us closer as a people. This is unquestionably one of the most awesome countries in the world. I mean looking back at the past 20 years of freedom. The good that this rainbow nation has achieved outweighs the bad. How I wish we could just stop this little racism mentality we still have left, and help people like Thuli Madontsela to beautify this land.
2 da gud ppl of rainbow nation. I hope nilale kahle nonke cz I can c evry1 is smillin' lol.
Sensation flames striker Frank Gabadinho Mhango, who is currently at Bloefontain celtin in the rainbow nation has vowed to fight for the topscorer prize of the PSL. The striker has 9 goals while Benard Parker the leading scorer has 10 goals. Celtic have two games remaining to wrap up their season. Gabadinho told ZBS that he's hoping to top the scorers list by the end of the season. He said, " I eat football, I watch football, play football and dream football"
