Mbhazima Shilowa wonders if the the current proposal for a government of national unity finds its origin in the legend of how the wildebeest came about.

Anyone who knows me, follows me on social media or reads my columns is aware of how much I love the bush. This is partly because of my upbringing – our homestead was close to the bush – and because my forebears lived for many years in what is today known as the Kruger National Park.  

While many visit the bush to see the big five – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard – I enjoy the joy of communing with nature and exploring the wild in its natural beauty. You can never see enough of it, as every sighting is different and in different settings.
