The 411

Okay people, here we go…

My name is Alistair Haddow and I’d like to welcome you to Our Perspective. A website and blog that I started with my friend Tshepo Motaung.Β 

Our Perspective started as a way to voice our opinions of the world and connect to a global and larger audience. We began with providing viewpoints on global and widespread issues but have quickly transformed into making our website focus more on South African politics and issues. We still take interest in international affairs but shifting to a South African context made more sense to us, simply because its who we are. Proudly South African.

Why the APE? Well this was something we thought about for a while, we wanted our logo to represent our mission and so why not let an Ape be at the forefront of our website, exemplifying the intrinsic and intuitive view we have of the news, politics and everything posted here – its news made simple, its politics made easy and its opinions uncomplicated.

So take a look at our posts, drop a comment voicing your agreement (or disagreement) and follow us via email or on Facebook.
