    It is with immense sadness that I read of what Ukrainians are going through under Putin’s machinations. Until it stops Russians should be uninvited from all international events, political, scientific, sporting (including tennis). And not just those with ICC arrest warrants.

      Putin’s first victims were ordinary Russians: journalists have been assassinated and many activists locked up for years, while many have fled rather than fight. Why punish them? I don’t identify with our corrupt government any more than many Russians and citizens of other autocratic countries do with theirs. If S.A. is sanctioned, would you like to be included or would you prefer targeted sanctions on government and their corrupt cronies?

How can a child learn to read if they don't have a book?

81% of South African children aged 10 can't read for meaning. You can help by pre-ordering a copy of MavericKids.

For every copy sold we will donate a copy to Gift of The Givers for children in need of reading support.
