FRED KHUMALO: Letting down the homeless
Are the Tshwane killings indicative of our attitude towards poor people in general and the homeless in particular, people we don’t want to see?
There were justified howls of rage and gnashing of teeth in the Johannesburg jazz community when one of the city’s most popular venues, Orbit, shut its doors not long ago.
As a jazzophile I was deeply disappointed because this venue had become my usual haunt. Not only were the performances superb, the food and the ambience were also impressive.
