The president’s family and friends have allegedly been able to take advantage of a military helicopter to travel between Durban and Nkandla at their leisure.
No political ambition can justify violence or the shedding of the blood of our people.

Rhodes was a nasty piece of work. The statue should have been pulled down and given to the Apartheid Museum in about May 1994.
I hardly ever agree with Mondli Makhanya. However, in the article “The decline in the relations of race” (City Press, March 22 2015), he is spot-on.
Conspicuously absent from the heated debate about the removal of the statues honouring colonialists and apartheid’s great apostles is the country’s political leadership.
