Great article. The right to dignity is a constitutionally afforded one irrespective of the person in question. The other issue we need to start discussing as South Africans is the role of indigenous beliefs, customs and cultures. No matter how we justify our actions, if they are seen to be contra bonos mores (contrary to public opinion), we risk being seen to impose our own norms and values on others. In African cultures, e.g. depicting your elders, whether they are your favouires or not is shunned upon and could result in corporal punishment. Let's respect each other's way of life. There are numerous ways to be artistic, but this one was unfortunately insulting.
[Tseko Shibambu] The advent of the Internet has brought with it opportunities and new marketing techniques.

Content marketing provides online information that the public needs in order to make the right decisions.
[Tseko Shibambu] Companies have evolved significantly from the pre-industrial revolution, where employees were only seen as providers of an exchange process where they were remunerated for their labour without regard to their well-being and satisfaction. Anecdotally, though it may seem mindboggling, some companies today are still struggling to break-free from this practice.
