📷 A brave soul managed to capture this photograph of the military operation currently underway in Harare’s high-density townships. Soliders are going door-to-door beating people. They’re taking people’s phones from them and detroying them.

Under the cover of the internet blackout, the military have unleashed a campaign of terror. Soldiers are shooting people. bashing down doors, dragging people out of homes & beating them up, making ppl roll in the mud. No one is covering what’s happening.

Every year when I read through the reports I'm shocked by the stats on Learners with Special Needs. Only 12% of the SA population live in WC but 64% of Special Needs matric candidates come from WC. Congrats

We do need to look beyond the numbers & what they mask. Our education system is failing children- especially those who are black and poor. No amount of spin can change that fact.

- finally found the time to finish the story of the person who was undoubtedly the longest serving political prisoner in SA. It was a real tragedy that the new government of 1994 did not release him.
