    Is society emasculating men in the “holy” name of Feminism?

  • King K changed the description of the group Group logo of At the Crossroads with Kaya FMAt the Crossroads with Kaya FM from “Topic – South African Youth: Are they entitled or are they misunderstood and how can they play catch up to their peers on the continent.

    With the significant high number of youth unemployment in South Africa – are they entitled to a job straight after university or should more youth in South Africa create their own path of success by embracing entrepreneurship from their chosen fields of qualification.” to “Topic – The impact of conflict on economic development: Is Africa able to resolve her own conflict?

    • Can Africa, but most importantly can South Africa afford the conflict we find ourselves in?
    • What are the causes of conflict?
    • What is the true cost of the conflict?
    • Who or what is fueling it (Conflict)?
    • If not who or what – who is paying for it?” 3 weeks, 3 days ago

  • Conflict is a very interesting topic, it’s the final step; the very edge where our differences set us clearly apart

    • Even so, conflict is neccessary Chief. Two realities can not exist simultaneously. One most rule, one authority must rule, once agenda, one power.
        • Though there should be a limit. There is an African Proverb that goes When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers.

          Similarly, the political conflict in our country had and will forever affect the South African people. So although it’s good to have differences, that conversation should be constructive not what we are currently seeing

        • Perhaps we need the people to be soooo oppressed that they would revolt. Perhaps destruction is the only thing that makes society wake up.
            • That’s poor thinking. People need patience, people need ethical leadership. This is what will eliminate conflict and all its effects.
            • You are far too kind. The diversity of this country will be its undoing if there is nothing that we all hold as a national pride. Unfortunately braai and pap are not enough.

              Once we have something we all hold as superior standard, we wont have to worry about people compromising the rest of us because they dont have a sense of accountability to…

              • What do you mean it will be our undoing, and I dont think having national pride would have any meaningful effect. In the end people need to work toward the common goal, and with suspicion of outside sources at play in influencing our society, a simple solution such as yours seems ignorant to that.
              • I mean that we dont have any accountability to one another. We tread lightly because we dont want to offend one another because of these silly differences. So we need to all go into a place where we put our differences behind our one common goal. And far often countries that do this have mandatory military service. We on the other hand just live…

              • Do you think that as a country we have more conflicts than solutions? Or is it the process of finding solutions that we find difficult to grasp?
                  • You can not bond to metals together unless you melt them.

                    Finding a solution suggests that there is an agreement between everyone involved. The beginning of finding a solution is unity. Only then can we talk about solutions. Because if we do so now it that solution will fail because of our very division. ACCOUNTABILITY ACCOUNTABILITY…

                  • Based on your argument, you are stating that “unity” is our biggest problem – which is followed by accountability…was there a point in time, post-apartheid where we have had a strong foot on those two aspects
                    • Yes we have conflicts but it should be anything we cant educate people about. People are easily convinced to hand over their power to the promises of politicians. And so people need to educated and stand together in knowledge and build society
                    • @freeworld it’s not that unity is a problem, it’s that we dont have any. And yes, there is no accountability, because people arent in unity (agreement) and so we cant expect any accountability for any solution.

                      We never have because never had unity. The last time we had some measure of being in agreement was when we were all oppressed and killed…

                    • World Bank reported a year ago which found SA to be the most unequal country, out of a ranking of 149 countries. The report found the top 1% of South Africans own 70.9% of the country’s wealth, while the bottom 60% only controls 7% of the country’s assets. Neighbours Namibia and Botswana were second and third.

                        Just an observation from my side; In 2017 Cell C announced that their WhatsApp bundles cost 60% more – up to R12 from the previous R7.50. It was R20 this year (2019) and this morning they announced that it will increase; yet again from 5th June to R29. I find this very scary indeed.

                        • I saw cartblanche and apparently criminals are stealing back up batteries in cellphone towers. So the cost of preparing them is possibly reflecting in these price increases
                          • Perhaps. But Government seems to be trying to hard to be lenient on this network providers. Sure they are getting broadband cheaper than they are selling to the customer

                            • And what is the purpose of the visit?
                                • The purpose is for client experience; to make client experience special and smarter and to give clients that edge, I guess… It so cool to be able speak to the humanoid robot as it clearly knows it all. You can check it out yourself; its quite impressive

                                Vodacom Group [JSE:VOD] and MTN Group [JSE:MTN] shares fell after one of the competition regulators ruled that SA’s two largest mobile-phone companies overcharge customers for data – particularly those on lower incomes. Vodacom, majority owned by UK-based Vodafone Group, and MTN had a combined 75 million customers in South Africa at the end of…[Read more]

                                • Shares can fall. But what’s important is that the cost to communicate decreases. South Africans are paying insane amounts of money for mobile data. So its imperative that we fix this

                                  The fundamental purpose of religion that we can measure, is that it gives hope. But hope alone needs to back up hard work. So why does it seem as Africans yhat we stop at hope??

                                  Capitec has done a phenomenal job with offering their own version of cash send service.

                                  • I agree! Capitec really has proven that they are tops. No wonder Capitec Bank has come out tops for the 6th year in a row in the annual Consulta SA Customer Satisfaction Index (SA-csi) for Banking.
