Should African cultural decorum not a hinderance in a pro...

my take is that respect has many levels, respect for every human being (regardless of age or social status), respect for the elderly, respect for authorities, etc. and all these respects should be observed, in my view. however there is no respect that is absolute rather than God's, in my view. and i believe respect is not a tattoo, once you have it, it is there. it can be forfeited or lost. the one or the entity to whom/which respect has to be accorded also bears responsibility to CONTINUE to be respected. for example, the Bible is very clear that secular authorities should be respected and obeyed. however at one stage when the very authorities sought to make the apostles to renounce God's authority, the apostles were very clear in pronouncing their stance. "we rather respect God as ruler rather than men." so clearly there are situations that respect can be nullified and this be acceptable. what do you make of a father who constantly mistreats his family, deliberately denying them basic necessities, blah, blah, blah? do you thinks he still deserves to be respected as a family head? maybe you think so, but i don't. in a nutshell, one has to first respect the position of authority that he occupies, then he can demand to be respected. if he doesn't do so, he has got no one to blame but himself if people start to disrespect him. reaction of people to baleka does not come as a surprise at all. she, herself is removing respect from this office that she occupies. the speaker should be someone who is level-headed, tolerant, able to contain her emotions and not biased. she is not doing well in these areas. she is a martinet, tyrant, intolerant and biased. ke maikutlo a ounara ao.  (Nov 28, 2014 | post #12)

The Use of Double Barrel Surname

not really. in the nineties many peole like Connie Masilo-matsunyane (who is now Connie Ferguson), Noleen, and many other celebrities took up this trend. they were soon followed by many others who were not celebrities. then it subsided a bit, maybe it's on a rise again.  (Sep 17, 2014 | post #7)

The Use of Double Barrel Surname

there was a time when this trend blossomed. in my view it is now declining. i'm not sure if it is right or wrong, maybe it depends on the motive.  (Sep 17, 2014 | post #5)

Oscar Pistorius Found Not Guilty Of Murder!!

aikhona mshanankgono wa nketseletsa, ha ke so re oscar murdered reeva. ere ke itlhalose hape. i believe hore oscar o re thetsitse, ha ke dumele his version ka mabaka ao le wena o ileng wa a hlahisa. ke kahona ke ileng ka dumellana le wena. empa ke ile ka hlalosa hore still ha ke dumele oscar ele e murderer kapa motho ya mobe. i believe he did what he did because o hloleha ho controla anger ya hae, everytime he gets angry he grabs his gun and shoots. i said i am not sure if he really intended to kill reeva (i personally don't believe so), but i also said he should have known that the more shots he fired, the more chances he had of killing whoever was behind the door. summing it up. oscar o re thetsitse, he knew it was reeva who was behind the door because he is the one who chased her to the bathroom. due to the fact that he has serious anger issues, he fired shots without thinking (as usual, his emotions overtook his thinking). ha ke dumele e ne ele maikemisetso a hae ho bolaya reeva. he must pay for his crime, but i don't see the necessity for maximum sentence.  (Sep 15, 2014 | post #96)

eseng jwalo leratoniki. mona ke buella tabeng ya culpable homicide eseng murder. one who murders should be sent for a long time in prison, they should pay severely. if there is no reason to believe that a person is a murderer and there are no clear signs that a person can commit that crime again, and that the person can be rehabilitated, ke moo ke reng ha ke bone bohlokwa ba ho mo koba nako e telele. if you keep somebody ya se nkotsi to the society nako e telele chankaneng, you crippling him but you are also crippling the government because he has to be taken care of by the government. jwale nna ke re mo lokolle a tlo sebetsa a patale tax a ska e ja. wa nthola jwale leratoniki?  (Sep 15, 2014 | post #92)

Oscar Pistorius Found Not Guilty Of Murder!!

thank you for asking leratoniki. south africa is moving away from punitive justice to corrective justice, hence we now have department of correctional services and not department of punishment services. prisons are now called correctional facilities. there was a problem with the old system of just punishing people who committed crime. a person would go to jail for shop-lifting but comes back a trained murderer. so clearly the system was not working, it was creating serial criminals and this was taking a huge toll on the government financially and otherwise. hence the shift was necessary. the whole idea is to rehabilitate people back into the society so that they can contribute positively to the society. now let's come to oscar. do you really think that even if he was to be given minimum sentence he would commit this kind of crime again? i really don't think so. ke nahana hore o utlwile, he has lost so much already. jwale haeba a romellwa chankaneng dilemo tse ngata, sepheo e tla be e le sefe? ho mo correcta kapa ho mo punisha? ke nahana hore e tla be e se e le punishment. potso ya ka ke hore haeba ho mo fa sentence e nyane coupled with intensive program ya ho mo thusa emotionally and psychologically, ene e ka mo thusa ho hlaboloha. then why would we need to give him maximum sentence? kapa e se ele taba ya ho kgotsofatsa takatso ya rona ya hore a utlwe pain le yena? do i think people should pay for crimes they commit? yes i do! but what i'm saying is that payment should not seek to destroy or retaliate and should not be restricted to jail time.  (Sep 15, 2014 | post #90)

he suffers depression and general anxiety disorder. nothing was found eneng e ka mo thibela ho emela nyewe. my argument is not whether he should serve jail time or not, but i'm saying i don't see the point to him serving maximum sentence, unless someone can justify why that is necessary. what do you understand the purpose of jail to be? and why do you think jails are now called correctional facilities?  (Sep 13, 2014 | post #76)

yes lerato ke dumellana le wena, everyone should pay for his crime. but what i'm saying ke hore paying should not be restricted to jail time only. if there is someone living in a small town and not famous who committed exactly the same crime as oscar's, he would have little to lose compared to oscar even if they both were going to do the same jail time.1) he wouldn't have the whole world hating him. 2) his fall wouldn't be hard and severe as oscar's. 3) his case wouldn't be tried in front of the whole world. 4) his talent wouldn't be shattered. surely these things must count for something and serve as mitigating factors. the idea should not be to punish people for the sake of punishing them, rather should be to make them pay for what they did. as it is oscar has already paid dearly.  (Sep 13, 2014 | post #73)

yebo sisi, breaking or destroying him ha ho tlo tswela mang kapa mang molemo. ke ntho e ileng ya etsahala le ka bo r kelly, had they sentenced him for rape charges, they would have probably destroyed his career, depriving the world of his talent in the process. i'm in no way saying that the famous should not face justice. i'm simply saying haeba ho bonahala eka motho ha a etsa ntho ka sepheo, and can be rehabilitated, why destroy him?  (Sep 13, 2014 | post #67)

very well put. judge le yena kannete taba tsa hae di hlahisa dipotso tse fetang dikarabo. i listened to a few programs where they interviewed legal experts, not a single expert is satisfied with how the verdict was reached. no one is disputing that premeditated murder is out. but people are not convinced about the validity of oscar's story and are concerned about judge's deliberate overlooking of certain crucial points, some of which you have outlined. even laymen like me can see that there is foul play. my concern is that what message does this convey about south africa's justice system to the world? o hopole nyewe ena e mametswe lefatshe ka bophara. damn, there goes my country!  (Sep 13, 2014 | post #66)
