What does the DA hope to find on the spy tapes? The answer is simple: nothing.
The Democratic Alliance will not release the contents of the widely discussed spy tapes to the public today.
A five-year battle to hold back the spy tapes ran out of steam on Friday. Charl du Plessis reports.
President Jacob Zuma’s lawyer has conceded in the Supreme Court of Appeal that the spy tapes which got Zuma off the hook on corruption charges should be made public.
Oscar Pistorius should never have been charged with murder.
Even if Judge Thokozila Masipa believes Oscar Pistorius is telling the truth, he cannot escape being convicted of murder, the state has argued.
Opposition political parties are “astounded” by Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) Chairperson Pansy Tlakula’s argument that a seemingly misleading statement she made to Parliament is not admissible as evidence in court.
After more than two years of investigating South Africa’s controversial multi-billion rand arms procurements, another two evidence leaders employed by the commission of inquiry have called it quits.
A prominent grouping of South African lawyers has supported the ANC in Parliament’s call for Israel’s ambassador to South Africa, Arthur Lenk, to be expelled.
The Supreme Court of Appeal has rejected the appeal of a man accused of calling a black woman a “kaf**r” in a dispute over parking at the University of the Free State (UFS).
A shocking new video, stills of which are pictured alongside and below, that has emerged of Oscar Pistorius moving rapidly on his stumps with an imaginary gun in front of him appears to have raised question marks about the athlete’s testimony.

Tuesday. I’m catching up on some reading after a week of higher learning. A pretty damned fine gig. Hanging around Wits, learning shit from cats not much older than my offspring, Small James and Big James.
The silence is about protecting white male privilege, which is under scrutiny in South Africa’s university system.
The ANC has lost moral authority. The public, even its voting public, no longer believes the party will do the right thing.
