A Mpumalanga ANC member was allegedly assaulted when he was refused entrance at a regional elective conference at the weekend.
Gauteng’s provincial leaders are on high alert and ready to respond to water-related problems that may re-surface in the near future, co-operative governance MEC Jacob Mamabolo has said.
Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema says Jacob Zuma should be the one hauled before a disciplinary committee, not his party for demanding that the president pay back the money for upgrades to his Nkandla home.
Julius Malema said he was out to prove that “it is not cold outside the ANC” and that there is life outside the governing party, which expelled him before he formed the Economic Freedom Fighters.
The Gautrain’s Sandton operation was disrupted today when a suspicious parcel was noticed at the station.
President Jacob Zuma bears no responsibility for overspending at his Nkandla home, ANC MPs said today as they continued Parliament’s consideration of the matter.
A teacher from the National School of the Arts who was at the centre of a racism scandal has been found not guilty.
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:
But this is not the case in the tiny mountain kingdom of Lesotho, where there was an attempted coup last month. On Friday, police and military exchanged fire as the country battles to return to normality. Only strict adherence to democratic rule can free the country of its problems.
School kids are not sex objects for teachers. This is the message Gauteng and Free State education MECs Panyaza Lesufi and Tate Makgoe, respectively, are sending out. The politicians have axed several teachers found guilty of having sex with schoolchildren. Such brave action means culprits cannot hide behind their profession while abusing our children.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 outcome of recommendations made by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela in her report on the upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla home is no longer in her hands, she said.
Julius Malema has refuted suggestions that the Economic Freedom Fighters is in bed with the Democratic Alliance.
In what’s been described as a big win for media freedom, Media24 – including City Press – has been granted access to a disciplinary hearing of one of the department of public works officials who’s been charged in connection with upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla home.
The ANC in Gauteng does not operate outside the guidelines set down by the mother body, provincial leaders said.
The Eastern Cape’s matrics will get at least a 70% pass mark in 2014.
Julius Malema says his lawyers are ready to go ahead with his trial – and he wants to appear alone because his co-accused’s lawyers are not able to agree on a date.
A survey has revealed that 80% of road users found the e-toll administration service “very poor”.
We have seen a trend of overall decline in support for the ANC, and that worries us.

Tuesday. I’m hanging in a huge tent. I’m waiting for the Commander in Chief. It’s been a long, sweaty wait.
When South Africans wanted details of President Jacob Zuma’s mysterious “rest and relaxation” visit to Russia last month, the response from the highest office was dismissive.
