Tune in to @KFMza now and join me for the Motivational Monday with @TraceyLange and get your daily dose of motivation to kick start your week. Listen live here: https://t.co/PCGrIzM7X3 #MondayMotivation

Good morning! It's an awesome Monday. The week ahead is a blank canvass waiting for our creativity to paint the picture. Join us @chaifm 101.9fm 6-9am for the best start to your day. News, sport & business from SA, Israel & around the world. #CourageousConversations #SmileDammit

I just downloaded & started working through @realDonaldTrump #PeaceToProsperity Palestinian plan. Couldn't help wondering if, when this is done, he could maybe present a plan for #SouthAfrica. It's pretty much what we need in this country. Asking for all my friends.

Good morning! It's #TBT @chaifm 101.9FM 101.9Fm. #SteveHofmeyr is back on Twitter & still nothing meaningful from @DIRCO_ZA on #ZindziMandela. But we are going to have our own best time anyway. #NoSafeSpace #YouDon'tHaveToBeJewish #SmileDammit @Zinathi_GQ @itslindiwe_m
