  • Cry baby Xhaka and the system that outlaws human emotions

    Granit Xhaka of Arsenal FC fame has caused something of a storm in the football world. For those who have better things to do with their time and as such missed the events, what took place was as follows: Xhaka, who is also captain of Arsenal, has been having...
  • Ethics and the State

    I feel it is time for us to have a look at the role of ethics in our politics, whether our leaders follow any ethical code and most importantly who watches the watchmen. As a citizen in a country, which is chronically afflicted by corruption and its symptoms, this...
