I THINK Julius Malema is an attention seeker, but he has a point about Caster Semenya and Nedbank .
We talk about the rainbow nation but see other people's cultures as barbaric . That baggage came with the missionaries' concept of maqaba and majakane.
I am Mosotho. When I meet someone, I say dumela. It means agree. We agree to share the same values and to respect others.
Respecting them is not merely drinking tea together, but listening to their opinion. It means accepting who they are.
As children we ate from one dish to learn to share, The same happened with work. I still hear my mother saying: Tsamaya o thuse abutiao. (Go help your brother). We were taught to help without being asked to . Before 1990 I lived with boys who behaved like girls, but they were boys to me. I never saw them as amazons, gays, etc. All that mattered was their good spirits.
Malema says we must not forget those lessons. I don't support everything he says, but give credit where it's due. Like now.
