Two groups of ANC supporters almost came to blows outside the East London Regional Court this afternoon as it was confirmed that the trial of Buffalo City Metro officials accused of fraud and money laundering would take place in April.
A woman linked to the Mandela memorial fund scandal in the Buffalo City Metro has gone into hiding after she allegedly received death threats from people implicated in the case.
An East London businessman convicted of fraud has signed an explosive affidavit detailing how top ANC leaders allegedly colluded to cash in after former president Nelson Mandela died.
Eastern Cape premier Phumulo Masualle has made big promises in his second state of the province address in Bhisho today, with education and health receiving most of his attention.
The Nelson Mandela Bay metro racked up nearly R744 million in unauthorised expenditure last year – but won’t or can’t say exactly how it spent the money.
Ten pupils have died and at least 61 have been injured on the country’s roads since the start of the school year three weeks ago. Lubabalo Ngcukana joined a group of 22 pupils on their way to class
The grandson of Nelson Mandela has praised the last president of the apartheid regime, FW de Klerk, for standing his ground and releasing his grandfather from prison.
Thamsanqa Sokutu has been hailed as a man who contributed enormously to the rise of black business in democratic South Africa.
An abaThembu elder who chaired Friday’s meeting in Qunu to discuss Mandela family matters says all issues have been “settled forever”.
A senior leader within the AbaThembu royal family and cousin of former president Nelson Mandela has called for bickering in the family to stop and for people to respect the late statesman’s wishes.
A meeting of the AbaThembu royal families can go ahead at Nelson Mandela’s Qunu home, the Mthatha High Court has ruled.
Winnie Madikizela-Mandela says the threat of violence and damage to property is the main reason Mandla Mandela shouldn’t be allowed to hold a family meeting at Nelson Mandela’s Qunu home.

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”.
This week we report that banks repossessed almost 5 000 cars from the country’s middle class in the Western Cape and Gauteng provinces.
