The other South Africa: small people, big ambition

first_imgJustice MalalaIt was not what we were looking for.My friend Joseph and I were looking for a car wash. These businesses have sprung up with a vengeance in South Africa’s villages and townships. Most only operate on weekends and are started by young schoolboys to make some pocket money for themselves.They are cheap, efficient and, most importantly it seems, communal. While your car is being washed and polished (for a mere R20 plus tip), you sit around on chairs provided by these young entrepreneurs, chat to friends and have a beer.The car wash establishments in Temba township, just north of Pretoria, were chock-a-block last weekend. So Joseph and I found ourselves driving north out of the township, past several villages and still not finding any joy.It was late afternoon when we came across the oddly-named village of Dertig (“thirty” in Afrikaans) and finally spotted it. A ramshackle corrugated iron roof held up by four wooden pillars, with a sign scrawled in white paint, this was the car wash establishment we were looking for. It was empty and I drove my car in.It was when we got out the car that we saw it. It was a football match.The sun was going down in the west and it cast long shadows of the sweating boys as they ran around the football field. We got our beer out of the car, went to the side of the field and joined the hundreds of spectators hollering and egging their teams on. One of the car wash attendants ran over with two camping chairs.“We like our customers to relax,” he said with a smile.And so the sun went down over the small village of Dertig, with a football game in front of me and a beer in my hand, with a horde of people screaming their lungs out for their teams, and there was something there. I was not sure what it was.Perhaps it was the ambition of the young players, all teenagers, who told me afterwards that they hoped to be spotted by some big-name teams and one day become national stars. Perhaps it was the young car wash boys, all schoolboys making a little pocket money for the week ahead, who seemed obsessed with making me happy by working like demons to bring my car to a high state of shininess (something I am not obsessed with).But sitting there, surrounded by all these amazing, ambitious people, and feeling totally happy and relaxed, reminded me of how easy it is to forget some of the real joys of this country: the ambitious and incredibly positive people, the beautiful sunsets, the clear night skies and the fat stars of my childhood.As someone who writes columns that largely concentrate on the politics of the country, and someone who criticises many of our government’s positions, it is sometimes easy to forget the real, “small” people who make this country work.In essence, I am saying the country of crime and HIV and other challenges we face and criticise our government for is not the only country. There is another South Africa, a questing, ambitious, hungry South Africa. It is a South Africa away from the news headlines, a South Africa hidden from the foreigner. This is a place of dreams and ambitions.I saw it again this week when I spent some time in Mamelodi township, just 15 minutes north of the Pretoria city centre, where the HM Pitje Stadium is undergoing massive refurbishment.There, too, I found all these young people who seemed not to be held back by the problems our country faces. They were rushing off to put in tender bids or position themselves for some or other opportunity.It is not that these young people are not aware of the problems that bedevil the country. These are the same people who have friends who have died of Aids or are living with HIV. These are the same people who see friends with great potential being sucked in by crime.These disappointments and hardships make them even more determined to build a better future for themselves.Their determination and optimism is what I saw this past weekend. Theirs is an aspect of life that we all – South Africans and foreigners – sometimes ignore as we agonise over the supposedly “big questions”.I hope we can confront the real big questions: how the poorest of the poor are toiling daily to lift themselves up and out of poverty, how the government and the rest of civil society can augment their efforts, and how we can all do our bit to make this a better country.Justice Malala is an award-winning former newspaper editor, and is now general manager of Avusa’s stable of 56 magazines.

Queen’s Baton Relay visits South Africa

first_img11 February 2014 The Queen’s Baton Relay arrived in Johannesburg on Monday on the last leg of its African tour. It will spend five days in South Africa. Similar to the Olympic torch relay, the Queen’s Baton Relay travels around the world prior to the Commonwealth Games. This time round it will visit 70 nations over 288 days, covering about 190 000 kilometres on its way to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Message from the Queen The relay left Buckingham Palace in London on 9 October, after Queen Elizabeth had placed a message to the Commonwealth in the heart of the baton. The message forms the visual core of the baton design and is illuminated from within by LED lights, but is unreadable until the opening ceremony in Glasgow on 23 July. Within the baton is a granite “gemstone”, native to Scotland, which is gifted to each Commonwealth nation and territory. It can only be released by opening a clever puzzle mechanism. On Monday, the baton was taken around Johannesburg accompanied by South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) president Gideon Sam, who was also acting in his capacity as the Commonwealth Games Federation’s vice-president.‘Enormous symbolism’ British High Commissioner Judith McGregor was also on hand after joining the relay for the Swaziland and Lesotho legs. “The baton passed through places of tremendous historical importance and it has enormous symbolism, especially for the younger people,” McGregor said. “I’m delighted and proud to be with you here on behalf of the British government.” At the Soweto Aquatics Centre, Sam and McGregor addressed school children from Orlando West High School. “Look at this baton very carefully,” Sam said. “When you watch this baton and its message being read out by the Queen on 23 July, you can say that you saw this baton when it came to South Africa.” Sascoc CEO Tubby Reddy said in a statement: “We welcome the Queen’s Baton Relay to South Africa and it is a reminder of the importance of participating in the Commonwealth Games. As Sascoc, we celebrate our achievements in our 20-year democracy and we hope this inspires the youth to be great achievers.” The 2014 Commonwealth Games take place in Glasgow Scotland from 23 July to 3 August.

Holiday Outlook for eReaders and eBooks: Even Better Than Previously Thought

first_imgThere can be little doubt that eBook and eReaders are having a breakout year. Today, Forrester Research moved its original projection of 2 million US eReader sales in 2009 up 50%. Forrester now expects that 3 million eReaders will be sold in 2009 and that 30% of these will sell during the holiday season. Forrester analyst Sarah Rotman Epps argues that sales are growing much faster than expected because of falling prices, better retail distribution, and the media buzz that currently surrounds eBooks and eReaders. For 2010, Forrester projects eReader sales of up to 10 million.Now that the competition among eReader manufacturers is heating up, a larger number of US retailers, including Best Buy, Costco, Target and Walmart have started to devote shelf space to eReaders. According to the Association of American Publishers, eBook sales since June have gone up 149% for the year and the industry now generates $14 million in sales every month.Reasons why Forrester is revising its forecast:Prices came downMore content available and accessibleRetail distribution improvedMedia buzzOne of the main reasons why Forrester is correcting its forecast is the fact that prices have come down (and this report was actually written before the Amazon announcement). In addition, Forrester also sees increased consumer awareness thanks to the current media buzz around eReaders. While the Kindle was mentioned 8,680 times in news stories in 2008, it has been mentioned over 15,700 times in 2009 already (including the month of September). In addition, the fact that more content is now available and that manufacturers like iRex and Sony are backing the open ePub standard is also opening up the market to buyers who previously weren’t interested in Amazon’s closed Kindle ecosystem.Outlook for 2010: Even BetterFor next year, Forrester expects that Barnes & Noble will become serious competition for Amazon. With the iRex Digital Reader 800 and the forthcoming Plastic Logic reader, B&N will be able to offer its customers a lineup of eReaders that can easily challenge Amazon’s Kindle – though not in the international market that Amazon just entered yesterday. Forrester also expects that Apple’s mythical tablet could become a major force in the eReader market, though for the time being, the Apple tablet is obviously nothing more than a rumor.Clearly the eReader market is growing at a rapid pace. Just yesterday, when Amazon unveiled the reduced prices for its Kindle 2 and the launch of the AT&T-powered “U.S. & International Wireless” version of the Kindle 2, Amazon’s CEO and founder Jeff Bezoz pointed out in an interview with the New York Times that whenever Amazon offers both a Kindle and paper version of a book, 48% of total sales now come from the digital Kindle edition. In May, this number was 35%. While Amazon doesn’t release sales numbers for the Kindle, these numbers are only possible if Amazon has sold a lot more Kindles than most analysts previously thought.
