Chevrolet Warriors Sunfoil Series Preview

Report by Justin Archer

The Chevrolet Warriors have recently embarked on their 2012/13 season and are focused on success in this year’s Sunfoil Series. While the Warriors are known for their recent success in the shorter forms of the game the team is motivated on doing well in the four day format and a lot of preparation has gone on during the off season to ensure they are prepared. The team is also buoyed by the return of Captain Davy Jacobs, after being sidelined from first class cricket for over two years. We assess the strengths and weaknesses of the team and look ahead at what’s to come.

Foreign Affairs – the documentary

Report by Sungeni Chitambo

This 5 minuter aims to show the lack of human rights employed in the way the South African Home Affairs Department conducts its operations. We follow the story of Ben who was detained by Immigration Officers in Grahamstown in the worst of conditions. With the same heartless abuse of power by the police during apartheid being reflected in the way Home Affairs officials treat foreign nationals, it looks as though history is repeating itself.

Flip the Script

Directed by Duduetsang Makuse – 5min

Fatherlessness has become a norm to most South African children — often reduced to a simple root cause of men’s irresponsibility. But this documentary is about the other side of the story – a story of a young man who shares his experiences of the challenges of unplanned fatherhood. Ultimately, the film offers up an alternative way of thinking about teenage and unplanned pregnancies by looking at the situation from a different angle.
