After a lifetime of being the anchor at the Afrikaans news on SABC, Riaan Cruywagen read his last newscast tonight.
“After decades of reading the news, Riaan Cruywagen stepped down tonight.” Gertruida – because she knows everything – announces. “It’s been a long haul from Apartheid to Democracy.”
“I’ll be sad to see him go,” Vetfaan says, “because he always seemed so professional.”
“Yes, I know. He read us right through from the Nationalists up to the ANC. Once, twenty years ago, the Whites suppressed the Blacks. Now the roles are reversed.” Kleinpiet draws prison bars on the counter top. “Only, our jail is more secure that it was in the old times.”
“What do you mean, Kleinpiet?'” Gertruida lifts an interested brow.
“There’s nobody left to read us back to normality now.”
