It is not a secret that the current generation of Economic Freedom Fighters is inspired by the freedom fighters of the early 1940s in the ANC-led liberation movement who, during the formation of the ANC Youth League, proclaimed “freedom in our lifetime”.

Regional ANC leaders in Mpumalanga have attacked secretary-general Gwede Mantashe in an apparent attempt to derail a probe that might lead to the Ehlanzeni top structure’s disbandment.
A municipal manager embroiled in a jobs-for-ANC members scandal is now completely off the hook after an internal probe vindicated him.
The integrity of High Court Judge Joseph Raulinga was called into question today after he dropped the name of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa in his interview before the Judicial Service Commission.
We are often so preoccupied with current events that we run the risk of forgetting some of history’s most important lessons. I have been fascinated with the history of ancient Greece and noticed striking parallels between the ANC and the Spartans.
New information has emerged revealing attempts behind the scenes by confidants of Jacob Zuma and Thabo Mbeki to strike a deal before the ANC’s Polokwane conference in 2007 could have led to the disappearance of Scorpion’s corruption investigations into Zuma.
If the price of unity is paralysis, then unity is no virtue. And, as far as labour federation Cosatu is concerned, paralysis is the new normal.
Proceedings at the Mpumalanga legislature was brought to a halt when a ANC politician, Victor Windvoël, brought attention to a dress worn by DA representative Jane Sithole.
Ousted Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi is considering going to court to challenge his dismissal from the trade union federation and has blamed the demise of Cosatu on rogue elements hellbent on creating a weaker federation.
ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe has urged Cosatu not to fight the ANC’s political battles and use this as a basis for dividing the embattled federation.
The ANC believes it would be wrong for the embattled Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) to expel its general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi and that this would lead to even deeper fractures.
The ANC is likely to postpone its national general council from June to September so that it has time to wrap up unfinished business.
Mpumalanga Premier David Mabuza’s campaign to become part of the ANC’s top six began in earnest this weekend when delegates resolved to keep him as provincial chairperson for a third term.
The clock is ticking for the Western Cape ANC leadership to convince the national leadership not to disband them.

I’m busy working on Saturday’s babalaas when I get an SMS from a government spin doctor: “King Goodwill Zwelithini is going to talk about the xenophobia at KwaHlongwa near Maphumulo in a couple of hours’ time.”
Zulu king Goodwill Zwelithini is out of order when he rages and points fingers at the media, accusing it of twisting his words when he said foreigners must leave South Africa and go back to their countries.
The rest of Africa is Simply, Better, Faster than South Africa, to borrow a phrase from Standard Bank, one of the big four banks that are minting it on our continent.
