My Story – Back To Politics. Perhaps It’s Your Story Too?

In 1992/3 my late uncle General Tienie Groenewald was in the thick of the news. Not long before he went to the late General Constand Viljoens home to convince him to enter politics.

Putting My Stake In The Ground

Some time back I was advised to stay clear of political matters as an opinion leader on leadership. It was suggested I should focus on leadership in general. Well, my conscience, the activist in me and my love of South Africa just does not allow me to do this. Over the past 20+ years I […]
