Hot or Not
Since the collapse of the guesthouse at Nigerian preacher TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations, the South African government has been there to lend its hand. Even through a difficult time to get information from its counterpart in Nigeria and from Joshua, our government has looked after the South African victims. A caring government leads from the front.Not:
God comes in different forms and is worshipped differently. First, Pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries in Tshwane made his congregants eat grass. But his latest stunt is really worrying. His church members are now drinking petrol, which he claims he has turned into juice through prayer, all in the name of the lord.
The people of Scotland have spoken and it is a clear result. A true reflection of democracy took place this week, when 85% of the eligible Scottish population took to the polls to vote for or against independence from the United Kingdom. While those who wanted independence (45%) didn’t get their way, it is clear democracy is alive and well.Not:

It’s obvious. No words necessary. Bleddie agent!
South Africans are closer to knowing the contents of the spy tapes that saw President Jacob
Zuma evading criminal prosecution. For years, the DA has gone to the courts to force the National Prosecuting Authority to hand over the recordings. In it, we can only hope, are the answers the country has been waiting for.Not:
Mpumalanga culture, sport and recreation MEC Norah Mahlangu-Mabena seems not to know how to divide her duties between the party and the government.
Addressing a Women’s Day event, she lashed the Public Protector for being sent to destroy Zuma. Really. Clearly, the MEC knows more than we know. We’re listening...
Beyoncé. And no, she is not hot because of that rhinestone bodysuit alone. We salute the singer for proudly proclaiming herself a feminist at the MTV Video Music Awards and for so beautifully sampling Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s thoughts on what it means to be a feminist today.Not:
Marikana strike leader Xolani Nzuza. This week he told the Marikana Commission of Inquiry into the deaths of 44 people two years ago that he bore no culpability and would not apologise for the brutal deaths of security guards Hassan Fundi and Frans Mabelani at Lonmin.
The North Gauteng High Court has ordered the City of Tshwane to rebuild shacks it destroyed in Mamelodi East.

Tuesday. I’m hanging in a huge tent. I’m waiting for the Commander in Chief. It’s been a long, sweaty wait.
