Varsity was fortunate enough to get Sanda Shandu, YouSeeTV presenter and personality-on-campus, to sit still for a few minutes to answer some personal questions.
What are you studying?
I wish I knew but my transcript says; BSocSci - Economics & Organisational Psychology
What is the best joke you have ever heard or read?
Q: Why should you never marry a tennis player?
A: Because love doesn't mean anything to them!
If you weren't at UCT studying, what's the one thing you would want to do, apart from travel, everyone seems to want to do that?
Well I would travel to the states and enrol in a performing arts college or live the life of a struggling artist trying to make it
Have you ever been out of South Africa?
Yes. Egypt, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Mauritius, USA, Europe & Australia. And Rhodes University - that place is crazy out of this world!
What is the current value of a meal voucher?
R17, 50 isn't it? And worth a whole array of discussions in res dining halls and hustling skills.
What is the worst Jammie Shuttle experience you have ever had? I thought I was superman after a couple glasses of wine (I lie, a lot of glasses) at a WineSoc event and underestimated the strength of the Jammie door. I tried keeping the door open but my arm got stuck as I was finishing a conversation with someone who was off the bus. I mean seriously, the door was quite rude interrupting me like that.
Have you ever stayed in a UCT residence, if yes what is the most annoying thing about it?
Yes. I struggled to find anything annoying as I went to boarding school for many years but if anything, the quantity of food given was an issue for me as opposed to the quality - which most students have a problem with. And I was probably annoying for others with my constant singing/shouting in the corridors, shower, common room …
Have you ever been cornered by the hobo on main with the endless layers of African attire?
Unfortunately/ fortunately not. I'd dig to adopt his style someday
What is the one thing you would do if it wasn't illegal or if there were no consequences?
Get high in a Philosophy class or feed a Maths lecturer some magic muffins while they teach.
On a scale of 1 to 10 how flexible are you, one being ‘I can't even scratch my back’ and 10 being ‘I could be in a circus’?
7! And still goin' strong.
If you were given R2000 right now, to split between food and alcohol, how would you split it?
Feed the underprivileged with about R1200 and invite some friends over to share some beers with the R800. Mind you, I've only got two friends!
What's the one thing you couldn't picture your life at UCT without and why?
My Vaseline! The unreliable Cape Town weather takes a toll on my lips so my Vaseline is always there to help a brother adapt!
