    Uittreksel 2 uit Die Dao van Daan van der Walt

    24/04/2018 Duración: 02min

    Luister Nic de Jager, die bekende RSG-omroeper, se voorlesing uit Die Dao van Daan van der Walt deur Lodewyk C. du Plessis (skuilnaam). Daan van der Walt, Kalahari-boer, se vrou is in die hemel. Hy wil by haar aansluit, maar nog nie dadelik nie. ‘n Man is nie ‘n klip nie, sê hy vir sy oorlede hond en ‘n óú man het hulp nodig as dit by vlerksleep kom. Met ‘n doktersvoorskrif is hy apteek toe om al te gou daarna uit te vind dat Viagra en die vrybriewe wat hy via die Landbouweekblad se “Opsitkers”-rubriek uitstuur, die begin is van ‘n reeks gebeure wat sy hele lewe op sy kop gaan keer. Hy gaan ontnugter en verneder word, van sy hoogtes tuimel, onverduurbare hartseer beleef, homself bespotlik maak en uit sy aardse paradys gedryf word - dalk ook uit die hemelse na hy deur die weduwee, You Mei van der Merwe, saamgesleep word China toe om haar gestorwe ouers in die onderwêreld te versorg en hy moet leer tai chi doen.

    Luister Nic de Jager, die bekende RSG-omroeper, se voorlesing uit Die Dao van Daan van der Walt deur Lodewyk C. du Plessis (skuilnaam). In dié verrassende en vermaaklike debuutroman stap ‘n amper sewentigjarige ligvoets maar ook met gravitas deur die mynvelde van seks, liefde, godsdiens en ‘n vader-en-seun-verhouding in ‘n Westerse teenoor Oosterse verstaan van die wêreld. Die teenswoordige word deursny met ‘n dieper skoue vanuit die antieke wêreld van Mesopotamië, Griekeland en Rome, met veral die Gilgamesj-epos as begeleidende verhaal. Daan wil voor die ouderdom dit onmoontlik maak nog ‘n keer gaan vlerksleep en skryf ‘n paar vrybriewe via die Landbouweekblad se “Opsitkers”-rubriek. Maar die gode, almal ou kennisse van die innemende karakter, het ander planne met hom. Sy ontmoeting met ‘n jong man, verraderlik komies beskryf, stel hom regstreeks op teen sy eie gewete, die problematiese liefdeslewe met sy oorlede vrou en die religio-sosiale orde waaruit hy kom. Dié pakkende en ontroerende verhaal, deurenty

    Faith & Courage: Praying with Mandela - Interview with the Author

    29/11/2017 Duración: 16min

    Thabo Makgoba talks about his book Faith & Courage: Praying with Mandela. ‘We thank you for the inspiration and strength that you have given to Madiba, enabling him, over so many years, to draw out the best in others, rousing us always, by word and example, to seek the highest good for every child of this nation.’ So prayed Archbishop Thabo Makgoba with Nelson Mandela in his home in 2009 at the request of Graça Machel. This marked the start of a moving relationship between southern Africa’s Anglican leader and Mandela in his last years. Join Makgoba in his journey towards faith, from his boyhood in Alex as the son of a ZCC pastor to Bishopscourt and praying with Mandela. He shares his feelings about his pastoral approach to the world icon, and how they influenced his thinking on ministering to church and nation. What did praying with those nearest and dearest to Mandela mean? What was Madiba’s spirituality? In trying to answer these questions, Makgoba opens a window on South Africa’s spiritual life.

    Interview with Claire Bisseker, author of On the Brink

    25/10/2017 Duración: 28min

    Few countries in transition have managed to get a grip on their public finances as well as South Africa did after 1994. Now, just more than twenty years later, the nation’s credibility and the democratic project lie in tatters as we teeter on the brink of a political and fiscal cliff. Business confidence and investment have evaporated along with clean, accountable government, causing South Africa to be downgraded to junk status, crushing the country’s growth potential and pushing it towards a debt trap. How did we land up in this mess, and can we pull back from the brink? Claire Bisseker, the award-winning economics editor of the Financial Mail, unpacks the crisis in this accessible and highly readable guide to what makes our economy tick.
