Prince Harry addresses his decision to leave royal life20 January 2020 | 4 Minute Listen
During a candid speech at a charity event, the Duke of Sussex described his “great sadness" over his and Duchess Meghan's split from the Royal Family but said they had “no other option.” He goes on to explain that he and Meghan wanted to continue serving "the queen, the commonwealth and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible. "The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly," Prince Harry said. "It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always gone at it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option. What I want to make clear is we're not walking away. And we certainly aren't walking away from you."
Monday Motivation: Avoid the trap of materialism20 January 2020 | 4 Minute Listen
This week's motivational clip is from British writer and philosopher, Alan Watts. Watts was one of the first to interpret Eastern wisdom for a Western audience. "Although I enjoy good food, I don't even own a TV. It's a very simple life, but I've got enough, and enough is as good as a feast. You see, a lot of people don't feel happy unless they have another thing beyond money, called status. And status to a very large extent in our economy exists in conspicuous consumption; in having this thing, and that thing and the other thing, and having a swimming pool, a certain kind of clothes, a certain kind of house, and so on and so on and so on."
What's happening at the Courthouse? Child maintenance, furniture theft and half a joint16 January 2020 | 7 Minute Listen
Every week, Rameez Khan of Kfm Mornings makes his way to courthouses across Cape Town to hear their stories. This week, Rameez made his way to Cape Town CBD and Mitchells Plain Magistrates' Court. The first person that Rameez chats to explains that his friend was previously convicted after being caught with half a joint. As a result, he has a criminal record and has since struggled to find a job. They are at court to appeal and clear his name. Rameez then encounters a man looking to bail his friend out of jail. It's a bizarre story as she's been accused of stealing a table, chairs and rugs - all worth R30,000 - from a bistro. He explains that the story makes no sense as there's no way a single lady could manage to lug all those furniture items out by herself. The last person Rameez encounters shares that she's been coming to court for almost two years to sort out maintenance from her estranged husband for her two young children. They are still married but separated when he left her for another woman when their daughter was a mere 3-months old.
