For well over a year now, President Jacob Zuma has had the Protection of State Information Bill on his desk, awaiting his signature and its arrival in our legal canon.
For months now rumours have circulated about why the African Union Commission chairperson, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, may not seek a second term.
South African government and security agencies have left secrets exposed at every level and foreign spies have access to all areas of government, according to the spy cables obtained by Al Jazeera’s investigative unit.
I have felt like a kid in a candy store this week: a journalist swimming through stacks of documents marked “Top Secret”. But what does it all mean?
Leaked secret South Africa intelligence reports – dubbed the Spy Cables – include an account of the former head of Israeli intelligence, Meir Dagan, lobbying on behalf of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in an effort to suppress the Goldstone Report.
» There’s more to come. Expect an even more militant Parliament henceforth. President Jacob Zuma appears in the house to answer questions on March 11 and respond to the debate on his state of the nation address next week.
The democratic Parliament’s first speaker, Frene Ginwala, was a guest at the state of the nation address last night. I wondered what she thought as the house fell apart in pandemonium.

The part of Nhlanhla Nene’s budget that’s getting to me is the fact that he’s upped personal income tax while leaving the corporates alone. That’s not cool.
The article, “Agang SA founder Mamphela Ramphele moves on” by Biénne Huisman (City Press, February 22 2015), contains some serious inaccuracies. In particular, I point to the claim that “The money owed to former staff members ranges from R10 000 to R30 000 for the months of July and August”.
