TOM EATON: Have a beer with that shot of redemption

You wouldn’t think Castle Milk Stout and the African Christian Democratic Party could combine to produce useful insights into the future of our democracy. But beer and those who claim to know the will of the almighty often work in mysterious ways, and truly, they have revealed to us a vision.

To behold it fully we must first go back to Saturday, which, it may surprise you to learn, was Ancestors Day in SA. Certainly, it was news to me. Well, it pretended to be news to me: the advertorial announcing the special day was published on at least one legitimate news website, with quotes and paragraphs and everything. Its gist, however, was that “Castle Milk Stout is partnering with renowned cultural activist and poet laureate Zolani Mkiva and the Congress of Traditional Leaders of SA (Contralesa) to officially launch Ancestors Day on May 8.”..
