  • White settlers never stole any land from Africans: iLIVE

    Black Africans never owned any land. Black Africans NEVER owned any land. Who "disadvantaged" the 'black' people of the interior in Southern Africa before the (supposed) belligerent 'white' settlers moved inland in the mid 19th century..? As certainly, what the 'settlers' found was not a hugely advanced infrastructure, deep mines, airports, vast libraries of written works, grandiose institutions of learning, etc. No, as little as 170 years ago they found masses of black people (indigenous to the Southern tip of Africa, The San) living on the fringes of the stone age.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said in a statement Monday afternoon that it will likely be several weeks before it can rule on a manner and cause of death for the 22-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston.

  • No dialysis for HIV sufferer - Western Cape | IOL News

    A family has questioned Groote Schuur Hospital’s policy on its dialysis programme, saying doctors are “playing God”, while violating a kidney patient’s right to healthcare, after their young relative was sent home to die. Nomtha Loretta Mazana, 28, from Gugulethu was discharged from Groote Schuur last week after doctors told her she didn’t qualify for dialysis because she has HIV but was not yet on antiretroviral (ARV) treatment. Mazana, who was admitted last Wednesday with severe headaches, said the doctor that treated her had instead advised her “to go to church as she needed to be strong spiritually” when dealing with renal failure.
