    SA's newest political party

    Durban - Two former EFF leaders in KwaZulu-Natal have formed a new political party, allegedly after consulting former president Jacob Zuma for advice. The new party, Mazibuye African Congress, promises to champion the cause of black people, with its leaders saying the membership will not be open to white South Africans.

    What Croatia’s president taught the world about leadership at the World Cup

    MOSCOW - Spectators in the VIP section of the Fifa World Cup tend to be a far more sedate and stolid crew than fans elsewhere in the stadium. At Sunday’s final between France and Croatia, though, Croatian president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović was a literal bright spot in the crowd. Dressed in a red-and-white team jersey, Grabar-Kitarović spent most of the game on her feet, cheering in support of a squad that ultimately lost the final 4-2. Before being invited into the VIP box as a guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Grabar-Kitarović watched every single one of her team’s appearances from the stands with fellow Croatia fans. Being a visible booster for a winning team is one of the fun parts

    Amber Rose is 'dating' NBA player?

    Amber Rose has reportedly struck up a relationship with NBA star Monte Morris - four months after splitting with 21 Savage. The 34-year-old model only split from her beau 21 Savage four months ago, but she's certainly not wasting any time getting back out there on the dating scene as she's rumoured to be getting close to basketball star Monte Morris after they were spotted walking hand-in-hand in pictures obtained by The Shade Room earlier this week.  Although the pair are yet to confirm their relationship status, her public display of affection will no doubt come as a surprise to 21 Savage as less than two months ago Amber had implied they were back together in a sweet social media upload.
