South Africa is not the only country that experiences violence against women. Violence against women is reported as physical, including rape. Gender Based Viloence is seen mainly as an assault on women. Men are also subjected to forms of abuse from women. The role our leaders lack in makes the solution to fighting these assaults to be almost impossible to solve.
The inequality of caring for man and woman respectively is not adressed in the right way. Many men face oppression from woman usually in Pschologically and in emotional ways. What can be added to the stress of men is the fact that man are designated providers for families and woman.
Factors that trigger man to be violent towards women have to be identified and dealt with in order for the epedemic to be stemmed out. It seems that in every generation the violence does not die down, men do not learn from the past when they decide to be violent. Is it about learning from the past? Will marches and shaming effectively deal with this issue?
Policing and the law do not prevent other forms of abuse that occur between man and woman.These abuses will lead to physical abuse which is usually reported on and seen as brutal. I almost struggled to understand why some men would still choose to commit these crimes when we are supposedly celebrating ” women’s month”. Are these men not celebrating their mothers who gave birth to them?
Uyinene Mrwetyana was raped by an horny man who is probably suffering from some condition from his childhood. There is a reason why men will force themselves on women as opposed to encouraging a woman to fall in love with him. The post office worker had previously been convicted of armed robbery, and had a rape case against him withdrawn. Without knowing the past we may never know what other people were affected by what made him rape. Wherever the motivation for the rapist and killer’s came from, it may be a where others like him will emerge whether it is his brother, son or friend. He may be convicted but the motivations that breed such behaviours are never checked and dealt with.
Back in Cape Town before the rise of this underground tree of hip hop we had GroundWorks and so went on Ben Sharpa and Snazz. I worked with Nicke in a the corporate environment then until we decided to quit and get into music full time.
Around the time, it was June and later I would be booted out of my place. From then on we soldiered doing odd jobs until I got into keyboards and Nicke followed on with cyphers. The rest is histort. RIP my friend Nicke!
Was Trevor Noah’s birthday yesterday. Turned 35 and representing SA on the bright lights.
We dedicate Guba Nam…. hint hint. Careful with your money!

In February 2017 Noah debuted his 9th comedy special “Afraid of the Dark” on Netflix. The special was shot before a packed house in New York City at the Beacon Theatre. In 2016, Noah debuted his one-hour stand-up special, Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation, on Comedy Central. Noah was the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary film “You Laugh But It’s True” which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa. His Showtime comedy special, “Trevor Noah: African American” premiered in 2013. He was nominated for “Personality of the Year” at the 2014 and 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards and won the award in 2015.

Born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father, Noah has hosted numerous television shows including South Africa’s music, television and film awards, and two seasons of his own late-night talk show, “Tonight with Trevor Noah.”
In November 2016, Trevor released his first book “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood,” which was an instant New York Times bestseller.

The book also received the Thurber Prize for American Humor and two NAACP Image Awards, one for Outstanding Literary Work by a Debut Author and another for Outstanding Literary Work in the Biography/Auto-Biography category.
The book is collection of personal stories about growing up in South Africa during the last gasps of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that came with its demise. Already known for his incisive social and political commentary, here Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers an intimate look at the world that shaped him. These are true stories, sometimes dark, occasionally bizarre, frequently tender, and always hilarious. Whether subsisting on caterpillars during months of extreme poverty or making comically hapless attempts at teenage romance, from the time he was thrown in jail to the time he was thrown from a speeding car driven by murderous gangsters, the experiences covered in this book will shock and amaze, even as they leave you rolling on the floor with laughter.

Noah’s untitled follow-up will be published by Random House and Audible Studios on October 23rd and will pick up where “Born a Crime” ends, following Noah’s journey from an aspiring young comedian in reborn South Africa to the cusp of global success. Trevor’s production company Day Zero Productions will partner with Viacom to produce the movie adaptation of Born A Crime, with Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o set to star as Noah’s mother.
