An ANC spokesman added fuel to the fire by suggesting that ‘all cowards can go if they can’t take the future here’. Adapt or Fly! 1981 and today rollick hand‑in‑hand through the ups and downs of South African politics. It’s even funnier now, while it also still chills to the bone.August Events

Location: Evita se Perron, Darling

Contact: +27 (0)22 492 3930 | [email protected]

Description: The 16th of December was always a painful reminder of how wrong things had gone. It was an official celebration of segregation and separateness. Dingaan’s Day, Bloedrivier Dag, The Day of the Vow reminded a majority that the Vow was aimed against them. Today we reconcile. We have accepted the ‘mock’ in democracy and isolated the ‘con’ in reconciliation and yet in spite of all the doubts, South Africa can still look forward to a happy future and laugh together at the discomforts of the past. Join Tannie Evita as she reconciles yesterday with tomorrow by remembering it all today.

Tannie does not have a big white beard or come down the chimney. Her reindeer do not soil the gravel path outside the fences of Evita se Perron and she does not sit in judgement of small children and their naughty acts of life. She also doesn=t give out presents to everyone. But her piano is groaning under the pile of gifts, tinsel, wrappings and secrets. Join Evita preparing for her ultimate Xmas, either in July or December and realise that to celebrate family, friends and yourself, you don’t really need an official reason. Every day at Evita se Perron is a holiday. Some of those can be Xmas as well.
