Only ancestors younger than 3 million years are suitable

It is at times like this that begs the question – are our people cursed because we stubbornly refuse to acknowledge our ancestors were found at the Malapa Fossil Site?

Black South Africans are full of contradiction  – we like to honour our tradition and culture, yet we shun our earliest of ancestors! Maybe it explains why this land rejects us, by cursing us with bad leaders, poverty and much black suffering.

The early hominids found in the Malapa pit had highly adapted tree climbing and swinging skills. My dear long lost agile African brothers, I am so glad we found you, we need to talk over an Umqombothi!
